Check it out, Im touching Nate Berkus.*

You are probably wondering how we managed to mysteriously summon a photo with Mr. B himself after I specifically mentioned not getting one at the taping. Well, turns out there was some kind of technical problem with our original taping so they brought us back to do it again. (Im sure it would have a been a lot easier for them to just edit us right out and forget us - so I'm very grateful they were sweet enough to have us back instead.) I was just as nervous and excited this time around even though we just doing the exact same thing again. The entire Nate Show team are soooo incredibly nice and made us feel as if we are important celebrities. (Even though that we know that they know we are just regular people they found blabbing on the internet.) And yes - I wore the same dress - I couldn't deal with thinking up another outfit at the last minute without medication.

If you happened to catch us mentioned in the promos last week, I'm here to set the record straight that we won't be on today's show (But you should still watch and/or tivo it because Sherry and John of Young House Love are on in a major way!) The exact airing date is still unknown to me so I'll get back to you on that.

You may also notice that it looks a little bit different round here. Yes, thats right - finally managed to get a new design up. I did the design mock up 7 months ago and figured it wouldn't be that hard to get someone to do the code. WRONG! I would have never guessed that it would have taken forevah. (If you are wondering - patience is not one of my virtues.) Waiting is like mini torture sessions for me. But it'sall worth it now. So much more organized. Its still a work in progress but I'm really happy with how it looks now. Huge thanks to Penny Lane Designs for making it happen.

Stay tuned - tomorrow I'll be sharing the Halloween decorations.

*No, not that way you pervs!

  3. Is it weird that the first comments out of our mouths when seeing your photo were "Nate's not wearing the same thing!" and then "And neither is Mr. Limestone!" followed by "Wait, so jealous they got a picture with Nate!"

    So bummed we won't be episode buddies anymore, but glad to hear it all went well and that you got to snag the coveted pic that evaded us both the first time around. Can't wait to see your episode whenever it airs and congrats on the new blog design. Looks awesome!

  4. I'm really liking the new layout! It seems to take a bit longer to load than it had in the past, but maybe it's just my connection. And think of the taping snafu as a stroke of luck - instead of only getting to do it once, you got to see Nate Berkus 2x as often!

  16. I laughed out loud at your disclaimer because I chuckled at your photo title...thinking wouldn't it be funny if her hand was resting on his cute, little backside!

    So happy for you and I can't wait to watch the episode! It will kind of be like actually getting to meet my friend!

    You and the mister look great...definitely holding your own with Nate!

  22. I was watching today. The show discription mentioned a Brooklyn Limestone... with five minutes left for the show to end I couldnt understand why they would only have you on for five mins and at the very end of the show?! So glad we will eventually get to see you on there! How exciting!

    Oh, I loved your old design. This one is a little too dark and modern for me. Sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love that you wore the same thing - I would've done that too. It's too stressful to re-pick out an outfit. Re-design is lookin' good too!

  27. Looking forward to the show! hugs from conroe, tx!

  28. Forgot to mention how great the new blog design is! It's great! ;)

  30. Nate is looking rather serious there and not to mention older lol.

  31. I love that dress- don't blame you a bit for wearing it again. Your new blog design looks great, but I liked the old one too with the pics of rooms in your house on the main page. The new font is nice too. Don't you wish you knew how to do the code yourself?! I know I do!

  32. Stefanie! I can't wait to watch your episode! And the new blog design looks fantastic!

  35. So glad you clairified because I kept waiting for your segment on Monday and was so disappointed when it didnt come up! I actually rewound the episode to make sure I hadnt missed it by accident. Good choice on wearing the same dress again though - it's gorgeous. Can i ask where it's from??

    ReplyDelete
  36. Okay, so I was watching and waiting to see you on yesterday but it makes sense now.

    Love the new design! It fits you so well...

  37. The new layout is awesome. It is so refreshing and you are totally right, much more organized!

  38. I've been wanting to add tabs to my blog for a while now too. It looks so much "cleaner" not having everything on the main page. Lucky you~ finally got your pic with Nate;)
