|Me and Mere! She was extremely nice!|
|Meredith' s Dressing Room|
After the run through we walked to Times Square (AMAZING) and ate a little Italian place called Serafina. It was a neat place with good food, but we were both tired and trying not to spend too much money. We just got the Calamari and a Basil, Prosciutto, and Egg Pizza. It was very fresh and not too heavy which was nice since it was pretty late. We we went back to the hotel and passed out with a wake up call of 6 am, not too bad for a morning show.
|Walking to the studio for the Show!|
I got myself ready, and we walked over to the Studio. We went into the Green Room (where show guests sit and wait for the there appearances.) We ate a little breakfast, then they called me up for Hair and make-up. They have so many guests it was like an assembly line up there! The lady did my hair in probably 6 minutes, and it was BIG let me tell ya. Haha I definitely felt glamed up, then another lady touched up my make-up. Zach liked the make-up, he kept asking if I can do it that way at home :). I'll sure try!
Next the we know we are walking into the studio with each of our dishes prepped and ready to go, with a beautiful finished dish for each of us. Meredith came by a about 30 sec to introduce herself and tell us to have fun. Then before we knew it we were on! It went fast, but it was lots of fun. At one point Zach was trying to take a picture and Matt Lauer was trying to get by him, Zach's face was hilarious.
After our segment ended, we went out to watch Bruno Mars play some songs. He was awesome by the way!
Then we ate at Burger Heaven...it really was a little piece of Heaven I think! And we were off back to Nashville and real life. This morning I turned on the TODAY Show, and thought "yep I was on that yesterday!"
