We’ve lived here 3 years and still haven’t taken advantage of much that the City has to offer. I’ve been trying to say yes more often and to figure out ways to do fun and exciting things. Like go to the taping of a tv show. I’m going to admit that I’m not much of a Martha person. I use her recipes now and then and I picked up her baking handbook at a garage sale last summer (I actually really like her homemade graham crackers and use the dough as pie dough if I ever need a graham cracker crust), but I’m not much of a crafter or decorator, so my excitement for Martha is fairly limited. Still, I jumped at the chance to be part of the studio audience on the Martha Stewart Show. It just seemed like the right thing to do.
I had a good time. Yes, I stressed about the “dress to impress” guideline we were given because I have approximately two modes: “jeans and a t-shirt,” and “church” but I somehow I managed to come up with something that almost made my jeans look “dressy” so that I didn’t feel completely under- or over-dressed. And how much do I love having a sister who can can come over and spend the day with the boys? Hallelujah.
So, on my list of things to do in New York City, I can check off “Be part of a studio audience.”
You can read a bit more about it here. And if you are able to watch it tomorrow (the 29th) you might be able to see me. I was in the second row.
