D-Day~~~Yikes! Change in Plans

Ok Ladies I am now getting nervous! (sips wine)! Thursday, September 11th is our "big" debut on the
Rate My Space show!
I haven't really thought about it until now, and now I am nervous as all get out! I have no idea what we (DH and I) look like on the screen, how dorky we may appear, and we are sweating over here! Our local newspaper also got wind of the story via my Interior Design teacher (Diane) so there will also be an article in the newspaper tomorrow! (sips more wine) The taping was a blast as was the couple we met via teleconferencing! Angelo of course was AMAZING! He is so cool and so real, and well so very good at what he does! It's been months waiting to see the makeover and I can't wait! Promise to not make fun of us;) (gulps wine now) This is the last show of this season so I hope it ends with a bang! (and not a bust!)

Keeping my fingers and toes crossed that it will all be fine! With so much negative stuff going on it's nice to have something positive to look forward to!
I personally want to thank EVERYONE for all your help and support on RMS and here in blogland! This would have never happened without so much input I received from the RMS gals;) A special thanks to Kiakai who was here with me through it all, thick and thin and everything in between!
It truly was a fun experience which I look forward to telling my grandchildren about in the years to come;)
PS If you haven't visited Twice as Nice they could use some prayers, please drop in and send them!
Hugs, Lisa and Gordon xoxox

Twice as Nice said...

It's not even 6:00A.M. and you've got me crying. You are so thoughtful to mention our blog. While it's my sons friend who lost his brother, my daughter has taken this hard. She is so sensitive to others and has come to me crying a few times. Her big sis (who got married and moved last month) will be home this weekend and I think she will be a big help to her. They are very close.

Now about RMS. Your blog says Wednesday-TELL ME I DIDN'T MISS IT LAST NIGHT!! Hopefully it's on tonight and I'm going to tivo it. Grab your family, friends, and some pop corn and ENJOY! It's a once in a life time HONOR. I can't wait.

THANK YOU :0)

So, I just found out that the waiting has to wait a bit longer. The Season 1 final episode will now be premiering Sept. 11th. I have NO control over programming. I apologize for the false alarm. TV scheduling is always changing. You can check it out here:

This gives you a bit more time to get ready and throw a screening party and I can PROMISE you that you an your husband have NOTHING to worry about. you come off great. How can you guys NOT?
Best, Angelo

O.M.G. I have goose bumps!!! Did you mention that you were going to be on before?,because I dont recall you mentioning it!!??!! How awesome!!! Cant wait to watch it!...Sept 11th now right?...How cool! ~Cindy~

nikkicrumpet said...

Well this I have to see...I love having the old RMS gang on the tube...YOU BE FAMOUS WOMAN! And of course your gorgeous house is more than deserving to be in the spotlight. However...you know full well that if you look like a dork...I'm going to mock you mercilessly...I'll have no choice. It would be just plain wrong to not abuse you if you're a big goofus on camera. And trust me...I'll record it just in case you're a HUGE dork and we can mock you for years to come lol.

Bridget said...

Oh buggers, sept 11!!!!

nikkicrumpet said...

Hey...where did my post go about Mocking you??? Dang I wanted that on the official blog record. Anyway....Ozzie wants to inform you that there will be NO ROOTING FOR THE SQUIRRELS!

cindy said...

O.M.G. I have goose bumps!! That is awesome. Is the something we all should have known??! Was my head buried in the sand or what?...Anyway I am sure you guys will be fabulous! Cant wait!...~Cindy~

SchmeckyGirl said...

Oooh how exciting! Sept 11th is my 15-year anniversary so I don't know what my plans are that day but I will hopefully catch the re-run later that night! I'm looking forward to it. Great pic of you and your husband up top there! Love it!

Penny said...

Hi Lisa, just like the FANTABULO ANGELO said, how can you NOT come off great?! I'm SO excited that you're going to be on the coolest decorating show EVER. We'll all be raising our glasses to you and your hubby girl! Stay cool, take deep breathes, and get that bottled chilled for some after show celebration! The show will be AMAZING and lots of fun for all of us. You can count on all of us not to miss it!

Hugs,
Penny

Kathy said...

Lisa, This is so exciting. I love Kelly(Kaikai). I wish she would create a blog. I can't wait to watch you and your sweetie on 09/11/08. But, I sure don't like that date. I never.. will. This will bring a smile on that date!!
I am sure you did a wonderful job!!
Tell Kelly, "Hi!'.
