So about two weeks ago I sent an e-mail to Oprah for last minute tickets and on Friday during the snowday I got a call aksing if I could come on Tuesday for a taping and that I could bring a friend. I was so excited!!
Yesterday was the big day. We had to leave at 3:30 am to be up in Chicago for the morning taping. We got there no problem and even found free street parking right next to the studio! The show was about clutter and how it can make you fat. The author of "Does This Clutter Make My Butt Look Fat?" was there and they followed a California family as they decluttered there house and began the road to weight loss. Most of the show was watching clips of this family and their journey. The show is set to air on Thursday, February 7th so be sure to watch it and look for me.
After the show Oprah talked a little more on the topic and then she talked about the election. Illinois is one of the Supper Tuesday States so she had voted that morning and we all know who she voted for, Go OBAMBA!!! The neatest thing was she showed a clip from You Tube of a Barack Obamba music viedo set to one of his Yes We Can speach.
When we were all done with the taping we headed to Michigan Ave and had lunch at the Grand Lux Cafe which was really yummy. I was surprised I hadn't seen it before as it is right across from the hotel I stayed at with my parents for New Years in 2007. Then we went back to the Oprah studios and checked out Oprah's new gift shop that just opened last week. After that we were on the road and home in time to pick up the kids from school.
