Rhonda had a post today that made me aware of The Martha Blog: Up Close and Personal. I don't have an actual picture of Martha for this post, but I did meet her before. No. Not because I live in Westport, CT where she also called home for several years. I actually met her through work when she was looking for funding for her Omnimedia business in about 1996. I'll never forget that meeting. Why? Because the receptionist called to say that Marsha Stewart was here for a meeting. MARSHA Stewart? I laughed. I was just a girl from Iowa who had recently come to New York and I knew who Martha Stewart was. I always wonder if she figured it out.
The other thing I remember is that Martha wore a navy blue J. Crew boucle suit. Don't ask me how I know. (For those of you who really know me, you know I couldn't tell the difference between Jimmy Choo and Nine West. I am completely a fashionista flunkie.) It just came up in the meeting somehow.
Anyway, The Martha Blog has invited readers to leave a comment on her blog with your name and website address. She is going to select some blogs to be featured on her blog. So go on over to The Martha Blog and leave a post. Maybe she'll pick you.
P.S. Here's a picture of a Martha Steward Hors D'Oeuvres cookbook (BTW, I spelled that without looking it up) from my cookbook stash with my latest Scout socks. I bought the book when I was a young Lieutenant in the Marine Corps at the Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Exchange because I had to take some hors d'oeuvres to an event. I believe I made the stuffed cherry tomatoes (seen just by Martha's right hand on the cover of the cookbook).
