Fox News

You may not know this about me but I often think how much I might enjoy being a celebrity…it is true. So yesterday when I got back from parent teacher conferences with the kids, little did I know that my debut was about to happen.

The local FOX 7 van drove up and the reporter asked he they could get some footage of the kids playing outside (because it had just rained a little) I said alright, next thing I know I am strapping on a microphone and answering questions about the drought and the new watering restrictions. And that is it people later that evening the Barlow’s (minus James) made our reality t.v. debut. All because my wild and scraggly kids were outside at the time the news people were driving by.

So watch and have a laugh at my impromptu shot at taking on the local news channel.

Wow! You may have to get a manager to handle all the people who will come knocking wanting pictures!! Just kidding! You’re much braver than me! Kids looked so cute!

hahaha, this is awesome! I love how they totally cut you off halfway through your sentence: “we’re just trying to be a little more conscious when we run the dishwasher….” Way to go on being a local celebrity. Can I have your autograph?

I’m sure it had nothing to do with the fact that you guys all looked great! I don’t think they would have stopped if ugly children had been playing in puddles. You guys were meant to be on T.V.

Wow you guys! I will totally follow your reality tv show when it gets picked up. You really look great! Lonna, the camera loves you for sure. Is it any wonder James went out and bought all that fancy camera equipment with you around?? LOVE it.

AWesome! You’re totally famous! Really cute. I loved how many times they said “Barlows”. Your kids will love watching that down the road too.

Julia October 13, 2011 at 8:54 pm

You are famous! I’m sorry to hear that all your hard work of trying to save the lawn is now for nothing. I hope get more rain soon!


Kelly Clark October 14, 2011 at 1:41 pm

Look at you, a natural in front of the camera, and just beautiful. You are always ready for anything.
