The day started out with the Nate Show. It was fun to be on set, see Nate, and get to participate in all that goes on with taping talk show.
I have to say that the Nate Show was fun, but it was also a big disappointment. I was expecting a Martha Stewart type blogging show but what we got was not ONE mention of it being blogger day on air- the whole show was not even about bloggers?!?
The best part of the show was the 20+ min Nate spent after taping answering audience questions. He seemed real then, alot more relaxed. He seemed like a different Nate from when the cameras were rolling.
Here is Emily asking a question
Oh, and also seeing Christian Siriano from Project Runway- LOVE him! But again, what does he have to do with the 90+ bloggers that were in the audience?!? Yea, not sure myself.
After the not-one-mention-of-blogger-day Nate Show we were ushered out to the sidewalks where we chatted it up with other bloggers, snapped some photos and got ready for the after party.
Yvonne from Design Vignettes (all the way to the left) couldn't make it to the after party but we snapped this photo as proof that the Boston bloggers were representing in NYC that day.
Next stop was the Meatpacking district to the "Get Carted" party hosted by The Nest, thrown together last minute by the amazing Camila in only a few days!
I finally got to meet Camila and Marianne and it was like I had known them my whole life. Seriously, it's so funny how talking to someone online and reading their blogs can form such a great friendship without ever meeting in real life. I miss you girls already!!

The Nest was having a design contest, "Get Carted", to see who could create the best bar cart with the props they provided. I took this task very seriously and together with Camila and Carlee we created this bar cart beauty
I got to meet so many bloggers, but I know I missed alot as well which was a bummer. There was just so much to take in and I could have been there all night talking to everyone!
Some of the amazing women I got to chat it up with: Jenny from Little Green Notebook, Marianne from Haven and Home, Emily from Emily A. Clark, Janell from Isabella and Max Rooms, Camila from High-Heeled Foot in the Door, Bryn from Bryn Alexandra Interiors, Julie from Create Girl, Deb from Living Livelier, Stefanie from Brooklyn Limestone, Lakeitha from Home to Three Duncan Boys, Erika from BluLabel Bungalow, Jade from Flip Flops and Pearls, and Beth from Hello Lover...
(I feel like I'm missing a few and I'm so sorry if that's you!! Between all the champagne and the mini cupcakes that I kept stuffing into my face, I was hopped up on booze and sugar. Leave a comment so I can add you to my list and again I'm SO SORRY, please don't hate me)
All in all the Nate Show was a disappointment (as you can read and many of the other bloggers posts too), but I have to say that Camila and The Nest party totally made up for it! It was a long day for the Boston Bloggers in NYC, but it was well worth it to meet all my friends in person!
We must do it again soon ladies, it was a blast!
(a few pics from my camera and the rest were yanked from Carlee, Camila and Yvonne. It seems the champagne and cupcakes that I was stuffing in my face at a mile-a-minute that I mentioned above got in the way of my picture taking, oops)
