In honor of October’s arrival, I thought I would share a few pictures I snapped as we walked through this colorful farmer’s market in New York a couple of weeks ago. Hope you’re having a beautiful fall weekend!
Let me start this post by saying, my real life day-to-day routine consists of feeding, dressing, driving, changing, and chasing three sweet little people. And, I love it. But, my three days in New York couldn’t have been better–or more unlike my normal life :) Here’s a (not-so-quick) recap.
We got off the plane Monday night and headed straight to the New York Design Center for the Rue Magazine launch party. Totally glamorous and totally fun! I immediately spotted some of my favorite bloggers and had the best time meeting them. (I kept saying it was like my high school reunion, only better.)
The majority of our second day was spent at the Nate Berkus Show–the main reason for our trip.
We spent a while in the holding room, where I got to meet even more bloggers.
Nate’s guests that day were Emily Henderson, who did a de-cluttering makeover for a military family, and Christian Siriano of Project Runway fame (can you believe I’ve never watched that show?!). I thought the show itself was alot of fun and Nate was even more charming in real life.
We spent the rest of our time in the city shopping with some other bloggers, eating (several times), and acting like crazy tourists.
And, what better way to end our trip than to sit on the runway at LaGuardia for four hours while waiting for a huge storm to pass. Luckily, I had my partner in crime (Katie) to keep me more than entertained–and a guy from Brooklyn, who might have been really sorry he got stuck next to two giddy girls who wanted to tell him all about Nate Berkus.
Now, back to the real world. . . . .
Email confirmation has arrived, flight has been booked, and the hotel room is reserved. It’s official. So, I can finally tell you. . . . I was invited by the Nate Berkus Show to participate in his design blogger audience day!
