If you didn’t already know, I made it to the top 15 of the Verity Mom Contest. Yay! I finished my final blog post and video submission on Monday and submitted it yesterday to Verity Credit Union. Can I get a hallelujah? I put everything I had into that video — from the videoing itself down to the editing and music. I think I could pretty much do a blockbuster movie now. I’m thinking about collaborating with Steven Spielberg. I haven’t gotten back to him so not sure yet.
Okay, maybe I’m not quite ready for blockbuster movies, but I do enjoy doing video editing. It’s like a piece of art you can put your artistic spin on and mold into what you envisioned it to be. I also learned a bit about compromise. You don’t always get the exact footage you pictured, and you learn to adjust, and maybe cut out a few clips here and there. I also learned that after 3 days of filming with 4 kids and a husband in 6 different locations while PMSing, isn’t always the most pleasant experience. Mostly for them. But we all survived and it’s done!
The next step is for the top 15 finalists to head down to Verity’s corporate headquarters in Seattle on Monday for a Mom Meet-Up. We’ll spend two and a half hours meeting each other, eating lunch, and doing interactive activities so that Verity can get to know each of us. They will choose their top 3 to go to the final round based on our final video, blog post, and the Mom Meet-Up. If I make it to the top 3 I will count on all my friends, family, and anyone else to cast their vote for me. I apologize now for the social media blast coming your way if I make the top 3.
So here’s my final video… Enjoy!
It doesn’t matter how you follow me, just follow me!
