Lindsey is the author of The Inside Stoop where she writes about her design finds and inspiration. I only recently found it, but it’s already become a daily read. If anyone knows about design trends and styles it would be her, because she works for HGTV in TV development! Cool, right?
She gets to watch TV, eat cupcakes and read blogs all while she is at work and she doesn’t get in trouble, because it’s her job. Sign me up! (I totally know it’s more complicated than that, but all of the above perks are super cool.)
I love coming up with new things whether it is a cool name for a nail polish that I think should be invented or show idea like one on HGTV starring my super handy husband and his sometimes nutty, but totally lovable wife, which means I was super interested in a day in Lindsey’s life. She gets to brainstorm all day on show ideas, search for new stars, tape with new stars and watch footage of existing HGTV shows.
I quickly emailed her and asked her to join in on the fun and she very quickly rose to the challenge.
So sit back, relax and enjoy a day in her life!
get to HGTV offices, check my email, head over to brian balthazar’s office. bri and i head down to mcdonalds where our favorite mcdonalds employee, Venus serves us two large diet cokes.
we all meet in brians office. each day someone brings in something pickled. brian and min believe that pickling is going to be the next big thing. today, brian brought purple pickled eggs. we eat the eggs, drink diet coke and watch the latest cut of Selling NY.
planning for my casting trip to Nashville next week: booking travel, making schedules for the shoot day. we found some great design talent there so i’m going to fly down there and shoot her doing a consult with one of her clients. can’t help but think about the biscuts at nashvilles loveless cafe. it’s the bonus feature of this casting trip.
conference call with the scripps production team. the view is playing on my tv in the background. who’s the guest today? pay attention to your call, lindsey.
call courtney, who sits 3 feet away from me and talk about what we want for lunch today. conference brian in to get his take on lunch. dilly dally. grab some moshe’s falafel but realize that we also need something for our 3pm sweet tooth. swing by magnolia cupcakes and grab a tub of banana pudding, and some red velvet cupcakes cause why not?
head home on my bike. it’s about to rain so i have to ride super fast. i get home, put together some posts for my blog, the inside stoop for tomorrow.
A big thanks to Lindsey for letting us in on the inner workings of one of our favorite networks.
Now I’ll just sit here waiting to see if her people call my people so that we can get the ball rolling on pitching a TV show. Ah a girl can dream… 🙂
