Yesterday I filmed/starred in a commercial for BYU Independent Study that is gonna air on BYUTV during GENERAL CONFERENCE in October!!! Say whatttt???

For those of you who don't know, I work in the video department at BYU Independent Study. I'm usually found behind the camera during video shoots, but this time I got roped into playing the female lead in FRONT of the camera! It's a fun 30-second commercial promoting the online portion of BYU and I'm really excited to be a part of it! The script is way cute and I even get to speak a few lines of a foreign language (which hopefully I didn't butcher). Here are a few pictures I took throughout the day:

My boss looking over some footage. Does that face on the screen look familiar? ;)
Oh, hey.
Couple of my coworkers working real hard.

So remember this face, you'll be seeing it on TV in a couple months! :)

Stay Classy.


What did you guys think of the summer finale last night???
Here was my reaction:

I was confused, freaked out, frustrated, excited, and shocked all at the same time.
Why can't PLL ever give us answers that DON'T leave us with even more questions?
So annoying, yet so addicting.
  1. Those cookies look fantastic ! And congrats on the tv appearance !

  4. Oh, I'll be on the lookout for you this October! And then when I see you I tell my husband and he'll be like "what? who is that?" which happens every time I talk to him about blogging, LOL.

  5. I am pretty sure I literally just sat there staring at nothing for a good half hour after the finale. Pure confusing and just angry! Now we annoying. Love that you watch PLL! xo Lo

    1. Right??? The "answer" they gave just left me with a million more questions!!! I'm excited for the Halloween episode but I'm bummed they probably won't really explain anything in it!
