This post might be filed under the annoying “teaser” category but we can’t tell you anything other than to cryptically announce that you might want to watch The Nate Show next Monday (the 25th) or DVR it if you’re fancy like that because… we’re going to be on it!!!
It’s a syndicated show, so we don’t know what channel or time it’s on in your area (in fact it doesn’t even air in Richmond, which is the bane of our existence) but if you hit up thenateshow.com you can use their station finder feature for more info. We’ve always been huge fans of Nate and his work, so we can’t wait to check out Monday’s episode (and unzip our lips about it after it airs).
Whirlwind doesn’t even begin to describe it. They called us on a Wednesday, flew us out on a Thursday, and we were rehearsing and taping bright and early on a Friday. Oh and Mrs. Limestone was there too- it was really fun to meet her and her hubs in the flesh!
By 1pm that day we were back on a plane for home (landing just in time for the arrival of The Bowers). It felt kind of like a dream since we were gone for less than 24 hours. We promise more info as soon as we’re permitted to spill the beans. Until then I’ll leave you with this picture of Nate’s iconic designer hair…
… just because I’m weird like that.
So exciting!!!! I also saw three pictures of your house in the latest issue of the nest magazine.
Exciting!!!!! I can’t believe you guys can keep this a secret for so long!! Can you at least tell us how Clara and Burger did?? I assume they tagged along as well?
Clara did tag along and was awesome (more on that later). Burger manned the fort back at home since we were gone less than 24 hours (and my sister stopped in to care for him like when we were in the hospital with Clara). Thanks for asking!

HOORAY! This is totally my new fave show, and my fave DIY bloggers are going to be on! For those in the Philadelphia metro area….I’ll save you the extra step of looking it up! It’s on NBC 10 at 2:00pm. Can’t wait for Monday!
Wowww! Congrats you guys! I hope we get some inside details on meeting Nate! I seriously swoon everytime I catch him on tv. :)

Weird, I never even knew about KPRC This TV (which is my Comcast Channel 320, apparently)! Nor did I know of Nate Berkus. But I will be setting my DVR when I get home! Woohoot!
Wow…you two are so funny/phenomenal! How did you ever keep that a secret? I would have been entirely too pumped to keep it to myself.
Also I was just thinking that somewhere deep down inside Sherry you wanted to be a rapper! :) You have quite a repertoire (Nate Dog, Montell Williams, Missy Elliott) that you’re able to whip out at a moments notice. I think you all should consider DIY-ing a studio in the basement of the next Casa Petersik!
Yo yo yo, check my flow. Mic check, one, two. Is this thing on?
I do secretly want to be a rapper. Shhh, don’t tell anyone.
That is amazing! congrats guys, we’ll be watching!!
Snickrsnack Katie says
OMG, I just watched the Sally Field interview on Nate’s page – and I am laughing my butt off! The way she described Jamie Lee Curtis was hysterical! I think Sally needs her own show.
I had a feeling something was going on, as I saw this exact same picture on Ms. Limestone’s site this morning, which is weird, because yours is the only one I really “follow” I was just clicking around killing time and ended up on her site, and thought- wow- all these bloggers much know each other somehow…
and then here’s the same picture!!
I get Nate’s show, I already set my DVR, and told my husband… “my peeps are going to be on Nate on the 25th!!! woot woot…” if only he understood my giddiness!! :)
you guys rock!
Erica @ Erica's Inspirations says
I kept wondering how long it would take for The Nate Show to request that y’all come on the show! I am not surprised :)
I can’t wait to see it!!!
OMG!!! So exciting!! If you guys taped on Friday, Oct 8th I am totally going to kick myself! I had tickets but ended up giving them up. Congrats on this, I love Nate!
Uh oh, it was that day. So sorry we missed you!
Oh wow! The only two blogs I am addicted to are yours and Brooklyn Limestone! How cool! Congrats to you guys.

I have told EVERYONE I know to watch this. I AM THRILLED FOR YOU GUYS!!
This means that you are one degree of separation from Oprah herself. Or is it two? And she knows the PRESIDENT. OMG. You are two degrees from Obama! Or is it three? Eithe way, so thrilling!
Hahah, you have us cracking up over here jbhat!
Jessica @ How Sweet says
OMG that is amazing! Can’t wait to see!
Emily @ The Happy Home says
that’s so fantastic! congrats! i will be DVRing that sucker!
Tiffany S. says
I’m so excited for you guys! I’ll have to check that my TIVO is still set to tape his show. I really really love that he’s giving so many bloggers and DIY peeps airtime. I mean, I know he needs content too, but I’m so grateful that he’s shining light where there’s so much talent instead of only relying on the standard, established TV folk.
brooke @ claremont road says
Congratulations!!! How exciting. And I’m not trying to brag or anything, but I predicted you guys would be on Nate’s show a month or so ago when you teased about some big news on FB :) I wasn’t right at the time, but I’d like to think that my prediction subliminally got the wheels in motion. Am I right, or am I right?
The funny thing is that you were right waaay back then. They actually contacted us before their show even launched (in August) but then it ended up getting postponed (we were crushed). So when they called us out of the blue that fateful Wednesday and had us on a plane on Thursday we could hardly believe it!
well done YHL!
mike @ the lil house that could says
whoa! This is awesome, congrats!
I knew it was only a matter of time before I’d see you guys on The Nate Show! How exciting! Congrats! I’ll definitely be watching! :)
Wow – lucky you! How did you guys get invited on the show? And how do you get to be part of all these magazines? I would love to know ‘what is your secret’….I think it is so fabulous that you two are having so much success!!! You truly deserve it – your blog is so wonderful.
PS – I love Nate’s new show and can’t wait to see you on it!!
Our secret is to just stay passionate about the projects that we take on and blogging in general (and never do it for fame or money- you have to do it because it’s what you love)! We actually don’t solicit shows or advertisers or columns in magazines- they approach us out of the blue and never fail to leave us pinching ourselves! We always encourage other bloggers to write about things that they love so their enthusiasm is practically contagious. That seems to be how people end up emailing us about different opportunities (since there’s no lack of excitement about DIY here at YHL). We’re endlessly thankful for the amazing life changing adventures that this little ol’ blog has tossed our way.
This is so exciting!!!
Just curious – is this the big opportunity you had before that didn’t work out originally?
Yes! They originally approached us before the show even launched but it ended up getting postponed (we were crushed). Thank goodness they called us out of the blue on the 6th and we were on a plane on the 7th. Insanity!
Oh wow, we do get this show in our market. AT 2 AM. AM. AM!!!!
I wish I had a DVR, but you know what? I’m going to set my alarm and get up and watch it anyway!
Sandra girl, you’re amazing! We’re shocked anyone would do that for us. Here’s hoping we’re worth it! Oh the pressure.
How exciting! Guess I’ll be taking my lunch an hour late on Monday (I’m in the Philly viewing area)!
liz @ bon temps beignet says
I was wondering how y’all timed everything since Mrs. Limestone mentioned it was the same Friday that Katie B brought little Will to VA to see his betrothed. What a week!
I’ll be watching!
Amy L. says
Wowzahh!!! This is huge! Congrats and I can’t wait to tune in!
Are you going to post a video of it after it airs? I work during the time it is on in my area so I won’t be able to see it! I’m so excited though – congrats to you two! I’m hoping this might make up for the huge blogger debacle that his production team royally screwed up a few weeks ago!
Yes, we’re hoping to figure out how to post a video of it (can’t promise anything since we’ve never done a TV to computer transfer before). Fingers crossed…
Soon people will be saying “..Sherry’s iconic designer ponytail..” ;)
Ok, now that made me snort a little. Very funny.
Christa M says
Congrats! Can’t wait to see it! Did they tell you not to wear black Sherry?
Yes! The nerve. Which meant that we had to run through the mall before hopping on the plane! Craziness.
I’ve been meaning to add his new show to my DVR schedule, I certainly won’t forget now! I mean, he’s such a big part of the Oprah family…you guys were practically on Oprah ;) Just think of that for a moment…
Congrats to you both. I hope this brings even bigger & better opportunities to you!
Ummmm…..can we please talk about where you got your cute red top???
Haha, it’s from Express actually. Snagged about an hour before we got on the plane since they said I couldn’t wear black (so 99% of my wardrobe was out).
Congrats guys!!! I will for sure be watching!!
I was wondering when you guys were gonna post about this, after I saw Mrs. Limestone’s post. Very exciting, you guys are superstars.
So is this the BIG news you once referred to? or was that the house selling/buying news?
Back in August we announced that we had a crazy amazing opportunity (which was an appearance on The Nate Show that they contacted us about before the show even launched) but then it got postponed and we were crushed so we announced that it wasn’t going to happen anymore. Lo and behold it did! We couldn’t believe when they called out of the blue a few weeks ago.
Awesome! Can’t wait to (**cough, cough, sniffle, a-chooo!**)watch it at 9am where I live – I think I feel a cold coming on…..
Wahoo- you’re gonna play hookie! We won’t tell your boss. Promise.
Mrs. Limestone says
It was so great to meet you two. (You should have seen me when I saw your names outside of the green room. Luke probably thought Bradegelina was in there!)
We were the same way! It was sooooo good to meet you. Did you see my scary permasmile when you popped over to our green room? I’m sorry if I looked crazy (I get too excited) it was just so funny because we were going to tweet you about being in NY and then bam, there you were!
Woohoo! How exciting for you guys!!
Does anyone know what station this air on in Canada? There was no info on the ‘station finder’. thanks in advance!
Does anyone know if it airs in CA for Christine?
I went to set my DVR, but its too far in advance… So I just set an alarm on my phone to watch it and DVR it! Can’t wait!
I guess its too late to say, “Break a leg” or “Good Luck,” so, I’ll just say “Congrats!”
Congrats, that must have been awesome! I have my fingers crossed that we are going to find out you two will be guest contributors on a regular basis!!
Congrats on your Nate appearance. It couldn’t happen to a nicer couple :)
Ashli M says
Yeah!!! That’s super exciting!!! I can’t wait to see it!!! Monday the 25th is written in my calendar!!! IN PEN!
AHHHHH! Holy cow this is so exciting!
Awww man! If only I could time travel.
Megan E says
Nate Berkus! That’s just one degree removed from Oprah! I be you could convince her to give away white porcelain animals as one of her favorite things.
Awesome! I was watching it the other day thinking – the Young House Love peeps totally need to be on this show – and lo and behold! Whooohooo! Can’t wait!
Wow!!! Congratulations guys, that’s so exciting! I can’t wait to DVR it and watch you guys get one step closer to becoming famous!
