#2,297 The Village.

After a long (amazing) day of meetings about some really exciting things that are happening (eventually), we had tonight to ourselves to just spend some time in Greenwich Village, our favorite neighborhood in NYC, before we finally head back home.  We stopped in John Derian’s shops in the East Village that have been an online inspiration to me for so long: We stopped into Three Lives bookstore in the West Village, which is the most charming neighborhood in the whole city if you ask me: And soon it was time to meet up with Lindsey and her brother Craig, and […]

#2,296 30 Rock Day.

Well. We’ve done it. We’ve been on the dang Today show. I got so nervous when we first got there, y’all. I was afraid I would go blank and forget what to talk about.  But Laura and Lynne from HGTV were there with us, talking about back problems and renovations at their houses and before long I forgot about being nervous altogether because we were just visiting with the girls from work. Soon, it was time to go out to the stage. And I saw Jenna and Hoda and Kathie Lee and Dylan and felt SO STARSTRUCK. But soon we […]

#2,295 Today Show.

First things first: we got about 11 hours of sleep–so amazing after the week we had leading up to today! And now, the exciting news about tomorrow… We are gonna be on the Today Show talking about Home Town with Hoda and Kathie Lee at 10 am tomorrow (Wed., May 10)!! Ahhhhh! We had rehearsal this afternoon and it was surreal to stand in that studio.  We spent the evening walking all over Manhattan after dinner at Friend of a Farmer, one of our favorite cozy spots in the city where old wallpaper surrounds you and French music from the […]

#2,294 We Survived.

Somehow, a ton of major things we wanted to do all piled up within hours of each other in the span of 4 days and we’ve been saying for weeks now that if we could get through: 1. The weekend of back-to-back speaking engagements with our first time to do a Mercantile booth at the same time 2. A few hours later get Ben and the boys to Talladega and back safely by 1 am after partying with Ricky in the winner’s circle 3. Then make it to the airport and catch our flight to NYC on time with a […]
