Aaron and I are packing up as I type. Those of you who watched the webcast know the Emmy went to Bindi. It’s all good. Aaron and I had a blast and it was an incredible experience.
If you are ever in New York and need to get your hair done, go the The Red Door Salon They were great! The client right after me was also nominated for an Emmy. She does lighting on Oprah’s show. We ended up being seated close to the whole Oprah lighting team and cheered for them when they won.
We didn’t leave for the event until 5:15 and at that time it is tough to get a cab! As we stood on the sidewalk, people passing by kept commenting on my dress. I think I made the right choice.
I can’t really report on the food. I didn’t eat 🙂 I had a coke and a water.
At the banquet.
In Rose Hall.
We came back to the hotel to a “flower fruit basket” from everyone at Signing Time, they know I am on a health kick AND love chocolate covered strawberries… the best of both worlds. AND an adorable email message from Leah and Lucy.
“Mommy and Daddy, I am sorry about that… What were you thinking when Bindi won? I totally screamed NOOOOOOOOO. I 100% hope you will get nominated next year. I realized that since you didn’t win doesn’t mean that you didn’t win in other people hearts and opinion. Anyway you have already won my hearts first place, Daddy too.”
How sweet are they? I just love my girls.
We went out for dinner at Blue Fin, Aaron asked if I wanted to change first and I said, “No, it’s New York. We look fabulous!”
I know I have the best fans and friends in the world. Yes, I would have signed my acceptance speech and other than thanking my family and production team I would have, and do, thank all of you for the honor of inviting Alex, Leah and me into your homes to teach your children.
