squeezing in the fall spirit...


photo: iPhone/angelo:HOME

Tomorrow (Mon., Oct 26th) I leave for NYC, very early in the A.M., till Thursday and I wanted to squeeze in some Fall festivus-like time with friends...SO, we drove to Underwood Family Farms in Moorpark, Ca., TOTALLY worth it. If you're in the area, you have to check it out.

We were also there to shoot a segment about Fall decorating for angelo:HOME, but we definitely found some time to have fun and get lost in the corn maze. Yes, they have a corn maze along with hay rides, great food, general store, pick your own pumpkin, lots of games and plenty of places to take awesome photos with your family and friends. It's a great place with a real working farm and farmer's market. Apparently they do a fantastic Christmas/Holiday theme and you can get your tree there as well.

The wheel barrel photo shows some of the bounty I came home with! On the way home we stopped for BBQ (I had a grilled bbq meatloaf sandwich) and ice cream. Hellooooooo FALL!

Also, if you're going to be around on Oct 27th during the 9am hour, I'll be on NBC's TODAY SHOW talking with Natalie Morales about her office makeover I did and some great tips for your own home office.

Hope you had a great weekend. Mine? It ROCKED!

UPDATE: I did the Today Show appearance today (Oct 27) showing Natalie's office makeover. If you missed it, you can view it here: THE TODAY SHOW

See you soon,
-angelo

LOOOOOOVED the Today Show segment OMG, you are too cute and Natalie's office turned out gorgeous. Where is the desk from?

Are you going to be on there regularly? Is so, come to my house. LOL!

Lynn said...

What are your words? "Awesome awesomeness!"

The makeover turned out beautifully. Thank you for the paint colors. I'm heading to Home Depot right now and this weekend I am painting my guest room. LOVED the curtains and the red touches. Just beautiful. You are so funny and charming.

Samantha said...

Watched it. Loved it. Where were the drapes from? The colors are absolutely beautiful.

You looked great!

Jill said...

The pumpkins look great.

The Today Show makeover was beautiful (I love those colors).

You and Natalie Morales are too cute on TV together.

Thank you for inspiring me.

It really was a total transformation into a functional, organized and beautiful work space. NOW it looks like an office that belongs at 30 Rock. I would say more but I tend to brag on Angelo too much as it is already. (It was good, though, and I am sure it made your brother and whole family proud too.)

MK said...

I am beaming with pride! I have watched your early beginnings on TV and every time you take it to the next level in the MOST authentic way. Rock on Angelo and this is still the beginning of an amazing career. Fantastic job on The Today Show, but that's no surprise to anyone that has followed what you do. Congrats.

We went pumpkin "hunting" over the weekend as well and had a great time. I asked my kids if they wanted to carve or paint them and I was surprised to hear them say "paint!" I showed them the ones on your blog and they loved them and were very inspired. Hope you're enjoying new York Angelo. You latest appearance on the Today Show was so great. Natalie's office looked so beautiful and your are so much fun to watch. Love you! Karen

Just playing 'catch-up'. (Our $ has been up, so have been doing some travelling.)

Thank you for providing the Today Show Link as wud have been disappointed if I missed it. The office was a fantastic transformation but I am curious what is with 'the boots?' (Am thinking they wud make awesome book ends.) Always a delight to see you work your magic.

Happy too that you've recovered from your dental surgery. KEEP WELL! -Brenda-

mrsben said...

P.S: Have lots of working farms in my area known as The Ottawa Valley.
Corn maze...when it comes to 'sense of direction' I am totally brain dead, so I wud be lost until next Spring. -Brenda-
