Steven & Chris and a blemish...

Steven & Chris

Yesterday was a blur.  It was a whole bunch of bloggy fun...and then some.

I was invited, along with many other local bloggers, to attend a taping of the Steven and Chris Show in downtown Toronto at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC).  I grew up listening to CBC on the radio and watching their television shows.  Steven and Chris have clearly found a home there and it shows.  They were natural and very, very funny and made us all feel special. 

Jenny McCarthy was a guest on the show and Chris did a fun interview...

They served us the delicious pulled pork sandwiches that they made with chef Rodney Bowers and invited us back into the studio for an informal Q and A. 

It was then that I was able to meet up with Liz and Jennifer for the first time in person and they were kind and lovely. There were bloggers too that I saw but was too shy to approach and more still that are new to me and I look forward to checking out. 

Except for the huge blemish that appeared on my face and I discovered at the end of the day, like a piece of lettuce in one's teeth, it was altogether fabulous. And fun.  

I have a swag bag to giveaway which includes 4 tickets to the Steven & Chris show...I think they are free anyway but I'm going with it! Just leave a comment if you want it.


  1. WOW sounds like such fun!

  2. I was sitting at the top row so didn't get to spot you until the very end of the then it was too late to say hello! It was a great day and I hope to meet you soon! Don't worry about the one but you noticed!

  8. Hi, I just found your blog from Sense and Simplicity. I love discovering other Canadian blogs. How cool that you saw the show. I'm your newest follower.

  9. Hi Tara, my friend Shirley & I met you & your mom before the taping of the show the other day & I found your site though their blogroll (how cool is that?). Anyway, nice post & I didn't notice the blemish if it makes you feel any better:)

  10. Ah to live near a big city that offers more than perogies during the Ukrainian festival...I'm in Winnipeg...sigh...
    I just came from Pamela's blog where I also got the Steven and Chris details. Lucky ducks!

  11. You know, I almost came, too! I was invited and seriously considered flying to Toronto, then thought, "Who the heck am I, Linda Rockefeller?"

    I would have loved getting together with you and Chris, of Just Beachy, and all of the other great bloggers.

    Glad to hear it was a great time (and happy to see that there is no *whining* by the bloggers who attended (a la Nate's show)!


  12. The taping was great fun, I just wish there was a way that I could have identified more bloggers. Hard to put a face with a blog sometimes!

  13. Love to see fellow bloggers get together and what a great place to do it!! Scanned through some other blogs and sounds like you had a blast.

  14. Wow! That sounds like soo much fun!

    Don't worry about the blemish. I'm sure its much more noticable to you than anyone else. ; )
