The Steven and Chris Show

On Tuesday a bunch of us lucky bloggers got to attend a taping of the Steven and Chris Show here in Toronto. I was so excited to see some familiar blogger faces, meet the guys and sit back and enjoy a very entertaining show. The show consisted of the regular decor stuff we've all come to know and love, a cooking segment, and celebrity guest Jenny McCarthy (she was so funny!). The taping was followed by some lunch which was prepared by chef Rodney Bowers for us hungry was pulled pork sandwhiches and they were delish! Then we all got to go back into the studio and have a wonderful Q&A with Steven and Chris, and even take some photos with them and the set. They are truly such sweet, genuine, funny and amazing guys! So proud that we have such great Canadian talent!!

It was just a really wonderful day!! I loved meeting some of my personal favourite bloggers, everyone was super nice!! I only wished I had gone over and said hello to all the bloggers I recognized, but between photos, eating, getting our seats and chatting with my sister (who is all new to the blogger world) it seems like there wasn't enough time, and the day flew by so fast. I only hoped we had more time to stay and chat, but I hope the local Toronto blogger meet up will give us that chance soon.

On a side note, I also ran into an old high school mate, Erin Richards at the show who actually works for Veritas Communications (PR firm) and introduced us to George Stroumboulopoulos, who is a very sweet and smart guy in person. So it was great to get to meet the whole CBC family of hosts.

My plus one, was my sister Patti and she really enjoyed the day as well, and she can't wait to come back and catch another taping, I think this time we'll bring my mom too! A big thank you to the S&C crew and the producers for arranging such a great show for us bloggers and for being so hospitable!

p.s I love that Steven and Chris mentioned that the entire audience was full of local bloggers!! Take that Nate! ;) The show should be airing this Friday October 22nd 2010 on CBC, hope you can all check it out.

Enjoy the pics...

Great pics Liz! I'll have to borrow that one of me and you ;) Wonder if all the buzz got your sister hooked and wanting to start her own blog?? Hope to see you again soon!

Great pictures Liz - I wish we could have chatted since we were both documenting the set like mad women! I had such a hard time putting faces to bloggers. Hopefully we can chat at the meet up!

Hey Liz,
I'm sorry we missed each other. It was such a whirlwind day. There were a few bloggers I missed too. I wanted to thank you for all of beauty bag posts. They got me to try Bare Minerals and I think I'm in love! Hope to catch you at the meet up.

Take care,

Hey Liz,

It was so great meeting you yesterday, even though it was brief. I really thought there would have been more time to chat with everyone, but life in the TV world is busy, busy, busy! We will for sure have to catch up on November 20th at the meet up!

Designwali said...

Thanks Liz for the sweet shout out! I think I'm even in the background in one of your shots above!! It was a blast actually putting a person to a blog (wish I had time to do more of that). Great recap post. Looking forward to future meetings!

Eek! You guys are so lucky, I've loved watching Steven and Chris for years and years. I saw them at a home show years ago but it definitely wasn't like the awesome experience you guys had here!! So much fun!
