As my plane was landing in New York I was filled with all kinds of emotions. Excited, nervous, scared, happy, etc… I wished my family could be there. To be honest I have never traveled alone like that before without someone picking me up on the other side.
The Today Show had a black car service pick me up, I felt pretty special! My driver on the other hand wasn’t very talkative. The streets are filled with cars weaving in and out, side walks filled with people walking so fast like they are late for something. We pulled up to my hotel and immediately I was filled with anxiety. Just walking up to the door I felt like I had to merge into oncoming walking traffic. The front desk people weren’t very nice and all I saw were business suits, I felt out of place.
Now up in my room I wanted to explore the city, but for some reason I was scared and unsure. So I first decided to eat dinner in my hotel. Now this was nice! It was an enclosed patio overlooking Rockefeller Center. I was alone and it was very peaceful.
Now my nerves had calmed and I decided to go for a walk. So glad I did!
Everything was so pretty!
I could hardly sleep that night, just going over and over in my head what I would say and do. I mean this is national television we are talking about! Everyone was so nice at The Today Show. My fellow contestants and especially Joy Bauer. She was the sweetest! If you haven’t already you need to check out her website She’s all about health! My first time on TV, I felt awkward and shy, but still had fun and who knows, maybe will get to do it again!! Here are some pictures from the show!
Here is the link to my “Thank God For Oats Stuffing” recipe! Hope you enjoy this as much as they did!
