Anniversary celebration

When my hubby and I were dating he took me to the QVC Studio and we took the tour. I really enjoyed it. So to celebrate our 3rd anniversary I asked him if we could go back.  It was just as much fun as I remembered it.  I love the studio tour. It is so interesting how the show is produced.  You get to walk out on the catwalk and look down and see the show live. This is the entrance to the studio.  West Chester PA

 Here I am standing at the entrance way.  Wearing my QVC wind breaker too !  hah
 This is the lobby and the security guard.  You have to go through a metal detector to take the tour.
Everything is done up in these beautiful colors.  It is really a neat place.
 In one of the hallways on the tour they have cut outs of all the QVC Hosts.  They have name badges that tell you their name when they started etc .. This is Leah -  my favorite show host.
 They have some shopping areas in the studio.  It was all decorated so pretty.  I was able to pick up a couple of Christmas gifts for the hubby.  I also found a little something for me hah
 After the tour we drove over to New Hope PA. It is a great little town. We had dinner at the below restaurant called The Landing. It was right on the water and you can see the beautiful old bridge that crosses from PA to Lambertville NJ.  The food was so good. We started with lopster & shrimp egg rolls. Hubby had a ruben and I had a pulled pork sandwich which was soooo good.  We would definately eat here again.

****** NYC Botanical Gardens ****

We went to the NYC Botanical Gardens today. They are doing a show called Edible Gardens. Today we got to see Michael Psilakis and Mario Batali.  It was so much fun.  The gardens are beautiful and we learned so much from the chefs. Here I am with Michael at the book signing. Last weekend we ate at this restaurant KEFI in NYC, delicious Greek food.

 Here's Mario Batali waiting for his demo to start. He didn't disappoint. It was very windy and cold yet he wore his signature outfit, shorts and orange crocs  . . .
This is a photo of the botanical garden site.  Beautiful green house
 You can't see it so well in this photo but a huge bumble bee was on this flower.
 Here's my sweet hubby, Gary as we were leaving the Gardens.

---------------Food Network New York City Oct 2010-------------------

Hubby and I went to the Food Network Day in New York City. We had such a good time we got to see a lot of the cooking stars.  It was such fun.

Tyler Florence - he is very handsome

Alton Brown and my husband. He kept us laughing.

Giada De Laurentiis - she is really beautiful and sweet

Rachel my hubby's favorite ! Both from NY

We saw Trisha Yearwood bake a carrot cake.
She was really nice. She answered all our questions and really was a good sport.

Then we went to Michel Psilakis restaurant for dinner called Kefi  - they have great Greek Food. I really like him when he is on the Recipe Challenge show - he is a judge. The whole time we were eating I kept asking my husband if he thinks he is really cooking in the kitchen. He said, I doubt it. He is the owner and does the recipes but I'm sure he doesn't cook everynight.  We were almost done eating and I just got my nerve up to ask our waiter about him and all of a sudden I see him walking past me into the kitchen.  I couldn't believe it. It was such a GOD moment.  He just blessed my heart ! So exciting to get to see Michael in person.

What a fun blessed day !
