almost famous...

I am blessed to have the creator of The Shape of a Mother in my life, she is funny, creative, snarky, beautiful, just all around fabulous. So when she asked for people to be part of a documentary that featured The Shape of a Mother, I said yes...with trepidation. You see, the catch is that we were to do it in our swimsuits, and if that were not bad enough, it was set to film in January. Yes, this is Southern California, but January is still a bit chilly. It ended up being an amazing day, with amazing women talking honestly about body image.
The very first bit is a surgery, which is pretty gory. If you want to skip it, just fast forward the first 2 minutes.

Louise Redknapp was so lovely, nice, and cute as a button. Funny and honest, too, as you can see in the clip above.
Here are a couple of pics from the filming

I was really really sick that day, so didn't feel like taking many pics.

The wonderful folks who make Tomberlies were generous enough to host and provide their delicious ice cream for us to gorge on. RDF, who made the film, provided us with a fabulous spread from Organic to Go.

I like how in the frame they chose to represent the video, it looks as though I am telling everyone to calm the heck down.
