I thought y’all would want to see some of the behind the scenes action that happened while filming my segment on The Chew on ABC. Ready?

I fished a lot. The water glittered in the sun and it made the 5am wake up call worth it.

photo 2

I love black bass. It’s delicious. You should eat some as soon as possible.

I played with a bow and arrow! AND…. AND… I WORE ONE OF MY NEW LINE OF T-SHIRTS. Get Yours HERE.

I also played with power tools. I just love power tools. I made a shed antler candle holder from an antler we’d found on the ranch. Scroll to the bottom to see how it turned out and for a link to the directions on how to make one yourself!

And I got to do this. I love it when me and a horse just get the wind in our hair.

His name is Soft Eye and we just love each other.

Then it was interview time.

I tore my jeans and I LOVE IT.

I gutted a fish and IT WAS REALLY GORY FOR TV. So they didn’t show that part.

Then I COOKED THE FISH for TV and it was delicious.

The French would cook this all in a pot together and call it a Courtbouillon. So would my friends in the Arkansas Delta.

This was our dinner table with two things that were truly me:

1. A shed antler that I’d turned into a candle holder and,

2. Flowers in our salad. Because a girl needs flowers in her salad, duh.

These were my pretty friends! A special thanks goes out to Jordan Shipley (yeah the NFL star, no big deal) for helping me SO much during this shoot.

We actually ate. Not just pretend pretty eating, no we ate. My black bass courtbouillon and a delicious dandelion salad.

photo 3

This is one of the producers! He’s kind of a Seth Rogan look alike, don’t you think?

photo 5

This was my boyfriend Woodrow chillin on set. He was kind of over it by the end of the day. That’s why I love him.
