What An Exhausting Week....

Finally Taste of Home has come and gone and it was a huge success! We had the auditorium set up for 600 people and we ended up having to add chairs twice. Final count I think we ended up with almost 700 people which was GREAT!

We started out the day at 8:30AM getting the auditorium set up at the Cain Center.

After we were finished setting up that morning Jamie (Culinary Specialist), Me & Chris (Emceed with me due to Jayson being ill) spoke with us to go over everything for the show. That's when the nervousness set in. Thanks goodness Chris was able to fill in because I don't think I would have been able to do it myself. I don't know how we did but I think it turned out pretty good, at least that's what a few people have told me.

Jamie was kind enough to take time out of her busy day to give a small class to the LaPoynor Culinary Class. She spoke with them for about 45 mins and then they helped us throughout the day. They also returned back for the show to help sell drinks and pass out door prizes.

The doors opened at 4:30 p.m. and I was surprised at the amount of people who were already in their seats and ready for the show to begin which did not start until 6:30 pm.

After the show was over of course we all had to stay and help clean up. We had to help tear everything down, stack tons of chairs, and clean up all the trash (which i might add was alot).

All in all it was a blast, but I am glad it is over! I hope everyone enjoyed and hope to see even more at the next show.
