Some of you may or may not know that last year I was offered the opportunity to be a part of a "social experiment" reality type TV show called the MILLION DOLLAR NEIGHBOURHOOD. After much discussion of the pros and cons of doing something that you have never done before and not really knowing what it all entails, my husband Mike and I made the decision to have faith and to embrace this opportunity.

So, let me tell you a bit about the Million Dollar Neighbourhood. The idea of the show is to increase the net worth of Aldergrove by one million dollars in 10 weeks. Now, when I say Aldergrove, I mean the 100 families that participated in the show. So, through a series of challenges, as a group we worked together in hope towards achieving this unbelievable goal!

Sworn to secrecy, I can not share details, but as the air day quickly approaches, I felt that I need to share how I am feeling. It started off as excitement, then it turned to nervousness and then yesterday, I saw an interview on the news with one of the hosts of the show talking about the upcoming premier and that is when I got scared! This is really happening, this is really real! When you are a part of something so big and so encompassing, you are not thinking about the fact that (possibly) millions of people will be watching. Well, now it is sinking in and I am realizing that this is HUGE!

It will be interesting to see how it all comes together and I hope you watch. These are real people. Really great people. We can all learn from this, it's family friendly and it is inspiring!

After each episode, my plan is to do a short post about my thoughts on what is happening and how it affected my family and what we learned from each challenge.
