robots in disguise

Hiya friends! 

As many of you may know, Transformers 4 is coming out summer of 2014. They have been filming here in Chicago for about a month now and guess who has been stalking them from set to set? Yup, this girl right here! What started the whole "stalking" process was when hubs and I were going out one afternoon and saw the street next to our place blocked off with cop cars and fire trucks. Upon closer look, we saw some pretty awesome cars lined up (Bugatti Veyron, Corvette Stingray, and Bumblebee to name a few). That is when we realized that they were filming Transformers 4 in our neighborhood! After they were done shooting, hubs and I were lucky enough to get some pictures with the cars before they took off to their next location.

Well, that wasn't the end of Transformers for us. About a week ago we found out that Michael Bay was about to film one of the biggest explosions at an abandoned silo in the south part of Chicago. Anxious to see what everyone was calling the "Mother of All" explosions, we reached the landmark and once again saw all the cop cars blocking the roads around the abandoned silo. While waiting to see the explosion, we got interviewed by CBS news. Y'all, I was seriously so nervous when the news reporter Jim Williams asked  if he could interview me but I won't lie, hubs and I sure did enjoy our few seconds of fame!


We were on the 6 'o' clock news on October 2nd and let me tell you, I've NEVER in my life waited so anxiously to watch the news like I did that day. 

Even though we waited almost 3 hours to see the explosion, it was a great experience just being there with other crazy fans like ourselves. What I find funny is that out of my entire interview, CBS chose to emphasize on the "stalking" part, which was true, hah! At least my hubby had something witty to say.
