It's Showtime!

Alright folks here is the rest of the story for those of you who've been waiting. If you want to start from the beginning, click here! On Wednesday the 23rd of February 2011, Monica and I were up bright and early! Well we thought we were up early enough until we began to run around like crazy people. The driver called to let us know that he would be out in front of the hotel at 8:15am. It was time to go. How do I look?

We met our driver and headed to the CBS studios:

Upon arrival to the studio they took us upstairs and showed me to my green room which I shared with the other women in my

Then they showed us to the craft room to get something to eat!
I grabbed a cup of coffee, some melon and a pastry but ended up only drinking the coffee as I was too nervous to eat. Next I was sent to hair and makeup!
Shortly after going back to the green room for a final photo-op with Monica, it was showtime!
What a difference makeup makes!! Maybe one day I'll learn how to wear it on my own...note to self, buy makeup, and wear it!
They took Monica to the audience and took me backstage to get my mic on. The makeup lady came back one final time to touch everyone up, then a producer walked me out to the front row. Another producer asked me if I had any questions and if I was o.k. I said what if I screw up completely will you do a take two? He said we only do take two's if the studio catches on fire lol. I later knew he was kidding when the little 7 year old girl came out on her skateboard and immediately fell off. She got a take two. Either way he assured me that I would be fine and turns out I was! Nate made me feel very comfortable, take a look:

After the show right before Nate left, he gave me a little peck on the cheek and asked that I please send pictures of the room once it's finished. We then left the studio:

This is the entrance where the audience members enter
We went to the Bryant Park Grill, where Monica works:

Bryant Park is where fashion week used to be held until recently
Then we went to Crumbs Bake Shop:
Where we overdosed on these:
Then we stopped by BJ's Fabric in the Garment District:
And lastly Time Square to see the changes that they made. Did you know they blocked it off for pedestrians now? There are even tables set up so that you can sit, or eat or people watch!
After all of that we headed back to the studios where I retrieved my bags and said goodbye to the two ladies that made it all possible Janelle (producer) and Marianne (production); then a driver took me back to the airport.

So there you have it! My Nate Show trip all wrapped up! And just in case you didn't catch the CW interview two weeks later, here it is for your viewing pleasure!

You are adorable! I am not kidding that was such a great segment. I love when you said "He has my taste" Awesome!

You are what I picture my daughter growing up to look like. You are so lovely. Can't wait to see what your room ends up looking like. :)

That was so fun to see, I wondered if they did everyone's makeup or if you had to do your own. I did not know Time square was closed off! Wonderful The last time I was there it was not blocked off. Oh, and love the dessert, I bet you were starved since you had not eaten. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Tatum,
This was so great to watch! Thank you for showing it, I can not see the show here, and it was lovely to see you live, like not only with words but with a sound, you are a great girl!
Have a good Sunday, and thanks for your sweet comment,

Tammy said...

Oh my gosh Tatum!!! How awesome!! I watched the show but missed the first half. Darn it! So excited for you!

Anita said...

I've just paged through your "Nate" posts. What an exciting time you've been having!

I also watched the video - feeling happy for you, and also trying to imagine how I'd feel being filmed for TV.

Thanks for posting it and for sharing the journey with your readers.

Tatum @ Many Moments Of Me said...

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for all of the comments. I'm glad that I was able to share the experience with all of you.

Jori, what a sweet compliment! Honestly I'm honored that you would say that. I'm sure you're daughter is precious.

Carol: I too was tickled about the idea of time square being blocked off, it was really cool though!

Maureen: I'm so glad this clip was here for you to see. I know you don't get the show there and it was important for me to share with everyone who couldn't. So glad you got to know me a bit more!

Anita: I had no idea how I was going to feel but I can tell you that I was a nervous wreck until I got on stage. Then I was calm as a cucumber!
