Back in Havasu

Yesterday (yes my birthday) we drove back to Lake Havasu City AZ to get back to work on the movie Pirhana 3D. We are both working on the movie and will be here until mid June. Jon is now double two different guys and I am playing a cheerleader and will do some other stunt work in a big scene.

I really can't tell you how much fun it is to be on location working together. It feels like a vacation with some work through in there and they give us each $60 a day for food. Wish I was eating more I would really enjoy that but I will just use it to get spa stuff (dieting for a few weeks for my bikini scene next week, yikes!). Here are a few pics from my work last time I was here with the other cheerleader girls.

Turning 28...

Tomorrow I turn 28. I must say it is strange getting older. I am really enjoying my 20's and the freedom that comes with age. As I get older I become more aware and confident in who I am and who I strive to be.

I have the most amazing life, I really do. I sometimes sit and think about what else I need and I feel like I have it all. A great husband, family, friends, job, house, dogs, my health, ect. I feel so blessed. This year really has been a great year for me. Life just keeps getting better. Even though the wrinkles are starting to show I don't mind too much. I have earned every one from the smiles of my great life. Thank you God for my amazing life and may the smiles of life continue!

6 years and conting...

Today is our 6th year wedding anniversary! I really can't believe we have been married so long. It is crazy how time passes so quickly. We have had such an amazing 6 years. We have lived such great lives and have had such great times. I enjoy each and everyday with my mate and look forward to many more anniversaries.

Each year we try and do something fun for our anniversary, this year a few of our friends came with us to Santa Barbara CA to do wine tasting and dinner. We took the train to Santa Barbara along the coast which was such a pretty train ride. We had a great day. Thanks to all those who wished us well today. I am always amazed how many people remember our anniversary and call us.

What a day...

I ended up having to come out to Lake Havasu a day early for a wardrobe fitting so I had to drive out here by myself yesterday. Jon drove out today so he could stay and go to the stunt awards last night. Remember when my car got broken into a few weeks back well, ever since then when I work out I only bring my wallet in the car with me. Yesterday I went to spin class before my 4 and half long drive and put my wallet like usual in the middle consil.

It wasn't until I was in the middle of nowhere and thinking about needing gas that I realaized that I left my wallet in my other car! I think my heart actually stopped. No money, no gas, no ID...nothing! I didn't know what to do so I pulled off the freeway at the next exit and pulled over in this neighborhood to try and figure out what to do. I didn't have enough gas to make it home or to the lake. I called Jon, mom, dad, sister, brother in one answered, so I started crying because I felt so helpless.

I didn't know what to do so I looked around and decided that maybe someone will help me. I did the math and needed about $20 in gas to make it to the lake for my 4pm wardrobe fitting. Crying I walked up to someone house and knocked on the door. I didn't even know what to say my story sounded too unbeliveable. A woman came to the door but only opened it a bit. She wasn't friendly at all and looked at me like I was crazy. She said she couldn't help me but the lady next door was a cop and she might be able to.

The lady next door was just barely nicer and not willing to help me and told me to try across the street. With my ego totally gone my face full of tears and my head hung I knocked in the thrid house. A cute mom, two teenagers and the dad all answered. I began telling them my story and they looked very simpathetic. (I totally pulled the I am a stuntwoman card trying to get to the movie I was working on, I was desperate) The mom said she dosn't carry cash usually but said she would check here purse. All she had was $10 so the teenage girl ran to her room and she had $5! I was so greatfull $15 never felt like so much money. I had these nice things, nice car, nice purse, ipod, but really it ment nothing when I didn't have acutal money. I began crying more becasue they were soooo nice. I aksed for their address to send them a check when I got home and they wouldn't give it to me. They said they were happy to help. I really couldn't belive it. (before I left I asked to use the bathroom :) for those who know me that is totally something I would do)

With their $15 and the $1 I had in my purse I might, I mean might be able to make it, so I got back on the freeway. I slowed my speed down to save on gas milage and turned the ac off when I went up hills. It was such a weird feeling, I am in the middle of the mohavie dessert with no money, by myself, not knowing if I will make it.

The next two hours or so were so stressful. I am watching the clocking knowing I need to be there at 4 and watching my mileage on my navigation checking I will make it. I kid you not, I made it here at 3:55pm and my navigation said I had 2 miles until I ran out of gas! Can you belive it. It was so sureal. I really didn't know if I would make it or not.

I am so grateful to that family who helped me. The world needs more people like them. I still can't belive I went door to door crying and aksing for money. What a day!

This Friday I do a stair fall on Ghost Whisperer doubling a guest star but I also double Jennifer in the episode in a different scene.

This Saturday is the World Stunt Awards which is the stunt community awards show aka our Oscars. It is always a fun time and usually it is televised on one of the cable channels like A&E but due to the economy our sponsors cut back on the funding. It still will be a fun time and is always followed by a great party.

On Sunday we are headed to Lake Havasu AZ to work on a movie called Piranha 3-D. Both Jon and I will be working on the film off and on for the next month. We both are doing a couple different things. Jon is doubling one of the stars and is playing himself in a big water scene and I was cast as a cheerleader and will also be doing some water stuff as just a college girl. It should be fun! We always have a great time working together but being on location ends up feeling like a vacation with some work thrown in there.

Obsessed stuff

I hope you all went and watch Obsessed! It was number 1 the weekend it came out. Here a picture from the high fall into the glass table I did. This was take three of the fall and the last shot of a 17 hour day which I was in every shot and the last day of the movie. I was pretty beat up at this point from the fight and bloody from the glass I was laying in . You can tell from the look on my face I was tired and worn out. I think I slept for a week straight after we wrapped. I still have a scar on my arm from this take from the glass. We were only suppose to do this shot twice but on the first take all 5 cameras missed my fall so I had to do it again which I was fine with because more times equals more money!

The other picture is of me rehearsing the fall through the ceiling, chandelier stuff and the fall into the table.

This was such a great movie to work on. I really had to push myself to my limits but I has such an amazing time. Here is an interview where Ali talks about the stunt work and mentions me. It is about 30 seconds into the video.
