and the Emmy goes to........


Not Us! But hey we are still the "Emmy nominated" Yo G G, right? Someone asked my sister if we were bummed about going all the way out to NY and not win and the answer is HECK NO. C'mon free trip to New York ?! Seriously folks!! I felt out of place the whole trip. A Lincoln Town car picked me up at my 900 square foot home to take us to the airport!! Then one picked us up and took us to are Hotel(the Essex house)which over looked central Park. And I went to the Emmy's. Did I mention are food was paid for? Can you say Room Service!!(OO-OOOOO)A girl could get used to this.
Us on the way to the Emmys. Our cab driver Henry was CRAAAAZY! Scott made the mistake of knowing who Lou Reed was which turned into a drug history lesson. There is something alarming about your cab driver telling you about all the drugs he likes to take.
My very Handsome Husband.
Scott was most excited to me this guy, Carol Spinney. The voice and puppeteer of Oscar and big bird. He was pretty funny.
This is Bob from sesame street, It was as if Scott was meeting Brad Pitt. He totally stalked the guy.
We Celebrated our UNvictory with some soft serves. The trip was pretty near perfect -Minus- not winning and the crazy Thunder storm that happened the next day. But............ I would like to thank the people that made this possible......... Wildbrain for footing the bill.....Beth and Nancy for watching my kids.......Brooke sister Ashley for watching Harper........Charles for not killing boo.......and the academy,What an honor, thank you.

So do I have to un-congradulate you? Just kidding, nominations can still go on resumes and my prediction is it's only the beginning!

Nobody cares about the words "Winning" or "Nominated". All they care is that the Emmy's recognized them. I'm so happy for him and LOVE that he stalked the Sesame STreet characters. I would have done the same thing. Scott, Ben & I lived for Sesame Street. LOVE this fulfilling post too. I was wondering how fun it was! Awesome.
