Our date with Nate Berkus!

Yesterday was the kind of day that makes me count all of my blessings. I, along with a group of bloggers and magazine media attended the new Nate Berkus show together...what an amazing day! 

 The Zhush, The Buzz/Diane James, Pretty Pink Tulips, Stylebeat, Shorely Chic, Hampton HostessDunes and DuchessBug and Bear and Style Attic; along with the following fabulous magazines House Beautiful, Hamptons Cottage and Gardens, and Connecticut Cottages and Gardens. Check out all of the above blogs...they are full of fabulousness and written by some amazing women. The above magazines are some of my favorites!     
 
Now on to Nate Berkus! First, let me begin with saying that Nate is even more gorgeous in person, if that is even possible! Might I add that after seeing his beautiful mother in the audience I know where he gets his good looks!
The new Nate Berkus show will be airing this Fall! My prediction for the show is that it will be wildly successful! I can just imagine his viewers watching him daily and repeating his tips for creating a meaningful home! Will you be tuning in to see this design guru give his thoughts, tips and tricks for creating a home that chants "I have lots of pride" in my home?

Our group was lucky to be audience members for his first official taping! Once I have the exact date of our airing I will be sure to pass along the information (so you can spot us on the show!)

Be in front of your television on September 13th for your date with Nate! Or better yet, be an audience member at one of his tapings. Click on his show website for details: http://www.thenateshow.com/

Here I am with The Zhush and Pretty Pink Tulips
Here we are in the studio after the taping of the show. Left to right: The Zhush, Me, Style AtticShorely Chic and Pretty Pink Tulips
Meeting friends from blogging is something I did not anticipate, but it is my greatest reward for all the work and effort that goes into creating posts and following blogs.
Thanks Nate for a very fun morning! Loads of luck to you!

Beatriz said...

Is it OK if I secretly hate you a little for this? Just a smidge? If Nate ever decides to play for the other team, Sam might be in trouble. LOVE him. And I seriously cannot believe he is better looking in person. He must have been a monk in his previous life to be gorgeous, so talented, and so kind!!

Beatriz said...

PS I'm raiding your closet... ;)

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Oh, this looks like so much fun! You all look so cute and happy! I guess that's the Nate effect!

Alexandra Rae said...

So exciting! I know this is a million years later, but do you have a link anywhere on your site where I can watch it. Wish I were on the East Coast with your gals. I would have loved to have been there--and to meet all my favorite bloggers in person! BTW, anyone headed to the Elle Decor event tomorrow at La Cienega Design Quarter?
