Well, I'm finally back in Los Angeles and reflecting on my AMAZING weekend in NYC where I got to co-host LIVE with Kelly and Ryan to fill in for Kelly Ripa!
I seriously had THE best time, the show is so much fun and I am so thankful to Kelly, Ryan and the entire team at LIVE for thinking of me.
The weekend began with a red eye flight to New York, which of course got delayed.
Once we finally DID get to New York, we kind of hit the ground running. I spent most of Saturday with the stylist getting me ready for Monday's show.
My husband Michael and I also spent some time with friends who live in the city and we went to Brooklyn, where I SWEAR all the beautiful people of the world are. Seriously it's all these young, hip people and fun bars and restaurants.
On Sunday we planned on renting bikes and going through the city... but they were all sold out. Womp womp. But it was ok! We spent the day walking around instead and had SO much fun.
I tried Frose for the first time (and be careful with that stuff, you will feel it!), Michael REALLY wanted to hail a cab, and he sure got to! And we met some awesome NYPD who I, of course, had to take a photo with.
Then, Monday was show day! I could not sleep at ALL the night before because I was so excited and just ready to do it!
It was crazy going in and having a WHOLE team do my hair and makeup and someone even had to help me put on my shoes because we were moving so quickly.
I was definitely a little nervous going into it, but once we went live, it felt AWESOME. I never imagined that in one show I would eat a donut, have questionable interaction with a blow up swan and put on a poncho and flip open water bottles all on live TV, but I had the BEST time.
And not to mention we then ran down the hall and did the radio show in the same morning. So much Sis and Ryan time for you all!
Here are some photo highlights of this amazing day:
Thank you to everyone for the support and kind words yesterday. I feel so lucky to have you all in my life! And you make it fun for me to come home and talk to YOU every morning!
