Nomination Celebration

If you’ve seen me on Home Made Simple, you know how emotional I can get. The families and friends that come on the show make an impact on me and I’ve grown quite fond of the amazing cast I’ve worked with over the last several years.

Just yesterday, I found out that Home Made Simple was nominated for a daytime Emmy award for outstanding lifestyle program. How awesome is that? I got pretty emotional just thinking about the last few years on the show and what it means to me.

The people I work with, and those I’ve met in the making of the show, have helped to make this all possible. I am ever so grateful and loved filming this season so do me a favor, if you would. Please tune into the show when it airs on Saturday mornings (9am on OWN) and follow me on Twitter. I’ll be using the #HomeMadeSimple hashtag as I tweet during the episodes and join in the conversation.

The Daytime Emmy awards ceremony is not until June, so we’ll find out then if we’ve won.

A new project that I’m really excited about, F.A.D. Weekly, has recently launched in beta mode. Here is Edition #3. Please check out the video and then subscribe, like, tweet, and forward the link, that would be so cool of you. Thanks!
