Martha Stewart Show recap - FINALLY!!



Pots and Pains and I arrived bright a early last Thursday for the Martha Stewart Blogging show.  We had to be there by 8:30 (so we got there around 8:00!)

Here is the studio before the show started.  Notice the bags on the rug to hold it down.  I just loved the lighting in there.  I wish I had kitchen lighting like that!


Here is the audience getting ready.  We were all to be live blogging/twittering from our seats, so there was plenty of tech support around to make sure everyone could connect to the proper router.  These women in purple and orange got to pose with Martha at the end of the show.  I overheard that they have a vineyard...

Here we are in the FRONT row!  The camera was never on us though.  Oh well, I certainly enjoyed our seats!  I kept feeling as though my computer was going to slide off my lap!


oh how I love this faucet.  And the marble counter top.  I would like both please.

It was hard to blog and pay attention, and since I only had my phone camera (these are shots that P & P took) I couldn't upload anything during the show.

Brian Williams was originally supposed to be the main guest, but I am assuming he was in Haiti. (and if not, it wouldn't look so good for the NBC anchor to be on Martha!) So Martha's daughter, Alexis was on with her friend, Jennifer Koppleman Hutt.  I have to say, Alexis was extremely rude.  I have a few other choice words to describe her, but I won't. Let's just say that if I were Martha, I would have thrown her off the set. Jennifer was hilarious though.

The show went by really fast.  There was some cooking, baking, and a craft.  Oh, and Martha's shoes!  I must post a picture of Martha's shoes....

We had a great time in the city.  It was fun to get away for 24 hoursPots and Pains really knows the city well after living there for 3 years, and I don't know the city at all, so it was nice to have her take me around.  Like we said after the show....

Let's do this every week!!!

You could totally say Alexis was a biatch... but since you didn't I did! LOL

I second EntertainingMom's emotion! Alexis was the rudest, most disengaging and disrespectful guest I have ever seen on anyone's show. Whether or not you like MS, she deserved better.

And thanks for posting pictures - finally! LOL Glad you had so much fun!

I was curious what your take on Alexis would be...she came across like she was incredibly inconvenienced by the appearance that day. Did love Jennifer and wonder how they are friends!

So glad you had a fun trip to NYC!

Glad you had a ball! I went last year and sat on the front row and was on camera more than I would have liked, ha!

So glad to hear you had a great time! And thanks for posting pics - love her set. I've gotten that impression about Alexis, from the little I've heard of her radio program.

BTW, I saw your comment on another post about the fortunate telling agenda (or something like that), where you said your b-day is June 10. Mine too! And my Hubby's! Too funny.

THAT IS SO COOL!!! I am extremely jealous! And if that was your camera phone, it takes great photos!

I have oft been curious about Alexis. I remember reading in an article a looong time ago that Alexis' apartment is extremely cold and stark. They had photos and it was! Visualize: white and gray concrete. I didn't see her on this episode but the times I have seen or heard her, I have found myself wishing she'd crack a smile, soften it up a bit, and get over herself. Of course I wonder if it is simply her personality or if she holds a grudge against her perfectionist mother who probably acted like Mommy Dearest while Alexis was growing up???

Obviously I've spent too much time pondering this...

Sounds like so much fun! And front row seats-that's fantastic!

HOW FUN! I would love to do that someday!

Were you told what to wear??? I find it interesting that it seems as EVERYONE is wearing a solid color. On every one of her shows. Are there clothing rules???

Looks like you had FUN!

Looks like so much fun...I want to go to her show so badly! xx
