Martha & Me

Being on the Martha Stewart Show was so much fun! After the live taping at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 3, my mom and I hurried back to the hotel so we could watch it. (In New York, it airs at 1:00 p.m.) And since, everything was a big, giant blur, I couldn’t wait to see how it came across on TV. So, we got to the room and I pulled out my digital camera and took a bunch of pics of the show as we watched it on the flat screen – just in case no one back home taped it for me. I’m glad I did, because after New York, my mom and I flew to Dallas for a few days before coming home. So, the pics were all I had to look at until I could get back home to my computer. Anyway, (blah, blah, blah) I thought you might want to see a few pics, so here are some stills of the show and also a few pics my mom took for me.

Here’s Martha, looking fabulous!

I got lucky and met Emeril Lagasse, too!

Bam! He was really nice.

Rolling…

Laughing and playing with “the chocolate”

Yes, she really did say that.

Wow! I still can’t believe that’s me. Thanks Martha!

Here I am, the day before in the fabulous kitchen helping to work on the food swaps. Too bad you can’t see the guy’s face on the right. He was yummy!

Me and some pink candy melts

This Way…

Lots and lots of lights.

Here’s some of the seats for the live audience

To the left is the cooking area and to the right, the crafting area… the set was so cool!

Martha’s entire team was fantastic. My producer was so great and made me feel at ease. And also, the kitchen team… Wow… I wish I could just thank them again.

My mom and I say goodbye!
