A Post About Cooking or Nate Berkus?

foodI was going to start a little weekly series today — something like “Foodie Friday” in an effort to… to…

Oh, I don’t know. I am just thinking it’s time to write more about cooking. Food. Recipes. And whathaveyou. Honestly, I was inspired to do more with food and cooking by this event.

But then I have a couple of pictures I really want to show-off share.

And my mom always taught me to share. And I always want to do the right thing. I’d feel really bad if I didn’t show-off share and do the right thing.

Ya know?

Where to begin… where to begin…

Let’s just cut to the Nate chase.

I might have been over-sequined, but this Kitsap County girl (can I get a whut-whut from my locals?!) doesn’t get to NYC very often… Hitherhencetofore, had I gone to a waterpark in NYC, I would have wore this top.

Not kidding.

And I know you are all fist bumping your computer screens right now…

Now. The above picture was pretty much born from the loins of Awesome. For me. And Mr. Nate Berkus was supremely gracious. SO gracious, in fact… he not only indulged my request to take a picture with him, but we engaged in conversation and my friend Tonya Staub caught the moment:

I. Know!

Engagement is WAY more meaningful than a posed moment, no?

I may have domiNATEd that convo. Maybe. I tried not to be nervous. I tried not to freak him out. *right eye twitches* I mean, we are all people. I know he is totes people… approachable, unassuming… And when I went up to him, he didn’t flinch a bit! Eye contact! Convo! Double rainbows all the way!

Now, I don’t want this to come across as a post of me slathering flattery like buttah on a pancake. That’s not how I roll. I am more of the Fainting and Hyperventilating and Whatnot. I am just a lot like my 5 year-old… so it was almost as if the whole evening was one big dandelion bloom…

And in the end, I just know the burden of dealing with people’s perception and being a celebrity… I know because I have a shirt… Nate has a show… I have a shirt. We have so much in common 😉

  1. Still love the sparkly dress Jenny!
    And love that pic with Nate Berkus. The engaging convo is awesome too!
    YAY! 🙂

  2. Nate Berkus is the stuff of dreams. I mean that. Even if it seems as if he’s possibly wearing one of those knit ties so popular in the late 80s/early 90s. Nate is perfect. So are you, lady celebrity! Maybe Nate will remember you and put you on his show as a special correspondent!

  3. OMG….I’m lurving the top, I’d be wearing it to, I dunno, grocery shop if I had the chance. And I love Nate Berkus.
    You so rock.

    You just keep getting better and better. Can I touch you?

    I think Nate just might secretly wish he was wearing a dress that fabulous~ or maybe a shirt, but definitely sequined! He just pales in comparison standing there next to someone all shiny.
    Mmmm. Hmmmm.

  6. Angella says:

    Oh my… how did you keep that quiet for so long!
    Nate… oh Nate… {sigh}.

    The shiny top so made the picture right!

  7. Sugar Jones says:

    Okay, I HAVE to have one of those shirts… just to mock myself! And ummm, great foodish type post of Nate. 🙂

    Nate Berkus is so cute. I just want to dress him up and make him PB&J with the crusts cut off…
    You’re going to blow that picture of the two of you conversing and hang it in your house, right?
