On Tuesday, I got to cook on Today with Hoda and Maria Shriver.
How fun is that?!
I took some random pics of the whole thing for you…
Back at the airport! This was my second Monday in a row to fly to NYC. This time, I was solo, so I enjoyed my coffee and book while I waited for my flight.
Cheers to a little quiet time 🙂 . Want to hear something crazy? It was 40 degrees in Dallas when I took off at noon and 68 degrees in NYC. How did that happen?!
My flight landed at 4:00, and I was checked into my hotel room by 4:45. I didn’t feel super great (head cold, sore throat, just icky), but I didn’t want to just sit in my hotel room, so I decided to get some fresh air…
…so, I just started walking. I walked up to the park…
…a little Shay walking up 6th Ave selfie. By the way, my green faux leather jacket is like my new FAVORITE thing!!!
I walked by the park…
…and just enjoyed being out.
I walked until 6:30 and then returned back to my hotel room for the night.
Okay, I’m pretty sure I’ve told you this before, but when I don’t feel well, my favorite comfort food is Pad See Ew from a Thai restaurant. There is one right by my house and Andrew always brings it to me when I’m feeling sick or just really have a bad day. Well, that’s all I wanted for dinner, so I pulled out my computer and googled food delivery in NYC and found this website called Seamless. I typed in the address for the hotel and searched Thai restaurants and you know what? Twenty minutes later, it was delivered for only $14 (and that included my bottle of water). Isn’t that so cool? I’m going to remember this site for future visits to NYC!!
Pad See Ew and a side of chili sauce FOR THE WIN!
A little Modern Family and Thai made life really good.
A few pics from my hotel room that night. I love you NYC!
My dad texted me this…
I brought this mask to put on after my shower…
…a shower, a face mask and a really good book (I finished one that night!).
The next morning, my alarm went off at 6:30…
…and I was ready to conquer the day!
Andrew texted me to ask what I was doing and I sent him this pic…
…hahahaha! I had put on jeans over my pajamas and that jacket and walked to Starbucks. A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do! I needed coffee! #andabreakfastsandwich
After that, I went back to the hotel and two sweet ladies from GlamSquad (it’s an app and they’re always WONDERFUL!!!) came up to my room to do my hair and makeup…
I put on my dress and was ready to head to Today at 9:00.
Green room selfie!
Then, it was time for my walk through to see how everything was laid out…
…this is my serious listening face. Ha!
Then, it was almost go time!
SO MUCH FUN!!!
I say this every single time, but everyone at Today is SO NICE!! I had the best time with both Hoda and Maria…who by the way, kept eating my food after the segment. Hoda ate all of her cake and Maria was eating the pasta. They both made me feel so good about the segment, my recipes, EVERYTHING! It was such an honor.
As soon as the segment was over, I was in a car on the way back to the airport. I pulled out my false lashes and washed the makeup off my face in route 🙂 .
Then, I waited for my flight and headed home to see my babies and sweet hubby 🙂 .
Thank you so much to all of you for the sweet comments, emails and FB messages. You guys are so sweet to me!!
