Don't forget book discussion on The Glass Castle tomorrow.
I CANNOT WAIT. It's my favorite book we've read all year.
I really love it when a company asks me to try out a product. It makes me feel like a super legit professional. Or something. The only downside is I never know how to talk about a product without sounding and looking like a complete idiot. I have certainly not mastered the art of having my picture taken by myself. I generally just stand there like a freak show doing some strange pose that does not even border on cute. That's why every time I test out a product for this bloggy blog I am have filled with anxiety because I'm no photographer, I'm no advertiser, and I'm certainly no model.
You see, I was supposed to let you all know about Wendy's new flatbread sandwiches. Have you tried them yet? There are two kinds- Honey Mustard and Asiago Ranch. They are inexpensive for fast food and actually taste good. I was sold!
Now the question. How do I take pictures of myself eating a sandwich and film a video of the sandwich without it being 100% awkward?
My friend, Amy, suggested I use her baby to do the video (The video is on instagram: @thelifeofbon). Genius! Then Amy offered to take some pictures of me and baby Bonnie going to town on the sandwich (Yes the baby's name is Bonnie! Yes, both Bonnies love to eat!) I'm not really used to having willing picture takers around- Greg has told me he's going to start charging for his photography services- so I took advantage. And guess what? It was so easy! And fun! None of the stress and anxiety I normally have over trying to look normal while promoting a product. Babies for the win!
Here's the scoop on the sandwiches. I tried the Honey Mustard Chicken, costing in the $3-4 range, and I totally loved it. The chicken was moist and tender which really surprised me because I'm used to gross, dry chicken whenever I eat fast food. The bread was perfect- I would recommend the sandwich to anyone. I'm excited to go back and try the Asiago Ranch- rumor on the street is that that one has bacon!
And from now until September 28 you can win $6,000 by creating a six second video of you and your flatbread sandwich. SIX THOUSAND BIG ONES! Post it on Instagram or Vine with the hashtags #6secondsflat and #thelifeofbon6 to enter your video. Easy peasy! Click here for more details.
