Wheel of Fortune, Life, and Some Tunes!

This one time, we auditioned for Wheel of Fortune.

IMG_3199Well, we applied to audition. Here’s what went down.

IMG_3193The day started with an early morning workout. My workout clothes never match. I usually wind up looking like an Easter egg.

Followed by the best protein bar that ever existed.

And my morning caffeine kool-aid. Crystal Light, same thing. Please ignore my gym hair.

Then we hopped in the car and headed to Lincoln City. The auditions were held at Chinook Winds Casino which is right on the coast, about 2 hours from where we live.

A casino right on the beach. Because, “It’s better at the beach.” That’s the casino’s little slogan, and I couldn’t agree more.

We followed the arrows to the big tent…

Where we waited in line with about 200 other Wheel of Fortune hopefuls. We weren’t the youngest in line, but we definitely brought the average age down a bit. People watching was on point.

We filled out the little application and waited about 30 minutes in line until they walked us into the showroom where the auditions were held.

There was a game board on stage, a Pat and Vanna “wanna-be” couple, and a big spinning container with everyone’s application. They picked 5 applications at a time out of that big container to the left of the puzzle. If your name was called you had to go up to the stage and tell the audience about yourself and do a little interview. Once all five people were done interviewing they put a puzzle up on the board and played through one speed round. Everyone got to guess a letter and had three seconds to solve the puzzle. This continued until someone got it right. The whole session was recorded and if the producers liked your audition and thought you’d make a great contestant, you’d be called back in a few months to return for a final audition. Out of about 250 people who were at the auditions, they called up 30 people…and we were not one of them. Sad times. But, we had a blast.

We played a couple of slot machines at Chinook Winds (they gave us $10 free for participating in the WOF audition), and then we headed back home. We made a pit stop at another casino between Lincoln City and home, Spirit Mountain. Steven played some Blackjack, I made friends with the bar tender.

Other than that it’s been business as usual around here.

Grilling out and enjoying the pool…when it’s sunny. AKA only 2 out of 14 days these past two weeks.

Exhibit B of Easter egg-like gym outfits. Lots of working out going on right now, getting ready for our trip to Mexico!

And splurged on some new kicks (although they’re probably the cheapest pair of Nike’s that they sell). The Nike Juvenates are my all time favorite shoe. They’re so light and they just slip on – no tying laces! I already have one pair and just felt like they needed a sibling.

A little playlist of my current favorite songs. A mix of stuff to work out to, to cruise to, and songs that will give you all the feels. Basically no matter what kind of mood you’re in, I’ve got it covered.

Current mood. So excited for lots of traveling coming up, I’m going to be on vacation vibe for the next two months. First up – a trip home to Michigan to visit family! Beyond excited to get out of town and party with the fam. Hope you guys have a great week and that no one kills your vibe – whatever vibe you may have, make sure it’s a happy one!
