A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to fly to Toronto for a behind the scenes set visit of the family friendly, made for TV movie “Change of Plans,” produced and sponsored by Walmart & P&G.; I was quite honored to be asked to come to travel to Canada, (the home of my beloved Michael Buble) just to see what was doin’ on set and meet the stars- Joe Flannigan and American Idol’s Brooke White. (You know one of those just super natural, super sweet, super pretty, perfect wavy hair that doesn’t frizz, cute hoarse voice type people– Yah that’s her.) Anyway, the hosts from P&G;, Walmart and MS&L; Worldwide couldn’t have been lovelier and more gracious. Though I was there for literally 36 hours, getting the chance to visit a city I had never been to and meet other bloggers from across the country (like Jyl Nipper, Janice Croze, and Paul Banas) was a treat. Flying Virgin definitely helped (still can’t get over how good looking the flight attendants are) as did eating at an awesome brewery and trying Poutine, a Canadian staple (that I’m pretty sure made mark on my cholesterol… in the bad way).

All in all it was a fun trip and I can’t wait to see the finished project which will air in January on FOX.
We got a chance to do some interviews with the cast and crew. Here’s some clips from an interview with me and Joe F. that the good people at MS&L; put together. Is he your quintessential Malibu (cute) Daddy or what? (For those of you that have never visited Malibu, take my word for it. He is. They make a lot of them like him by the beach. Come visit. You’ll see.)

    Welcome to Canada!!
    Hope you had a blast!
    Now that you had a poutine, you need to drink a Moosehead beer and have a Beaver Tail!

    if that is how they make the daddies down in Malibu then I may have to visit! Although, I hear you aren't really supposed to trade once you're already married. Do you think if I send mine down there he'll get some sprucing up? (kidding of course)

    glad to hear you had a nice trip!
