Everyone loves a Boston girl. This is the story of one Boston girl's adventures in the city, in blogging, and in getting through those crazy 20-something years.

I'm a writer by trade. And by passion. I'm a lover of food, friends, and all things Boston. I listen to music pretty much 24/7 and idolize Martha Stewart. I love my job(s), my life, and this city. Follow me on Twitter! @Susie

and then my life was complete.

In probably the most exciting thing to happen to me ever (sad or not? You decide), Chels and I have been invited to the Martha Stewart Show! We are going to sit in the audience of the special bloggers show and “live blog.” I think most of you know me well enough to know what a huge Martha fan I am and have been much of my young life. I only have a whole blog named for her (We are not Martha, duh), but I also talk about her probably way too much (like here and here and here). Yes, remember the time when Martha Stewart wrote on my Facebook wall?? Because SHE READ MY BLOG. That may very well have been the second most exciting thing to ever happen to me. I was also in her top friends on Facebook…and she had A LOT of friends. However, I think Facebook deleted her account, probably because she was advertising her new Macy’s line or something (big deal. If you’re Martha’s friend, you should want to see these advertisements). Anyway, my point is, I am Martha Stewart obsessed (in case I have failed to make that clear).

And so now Chelsee and I will venture into the Big Apple and arrive at Martha’s studio, laptops in hand, ready to stare in awe and attempt to type a few things while I’m basically dying on the inside. And also dying for the chance to talk to her. All of this will be occurring next Wednesday (Sept. 17…the birthday of my mom, whom is the main reason I love Martha so). So set your DVR or watch it live! And be sure to let us know if you’re going to be there too!

The line-up of bloggers for the show we’re attending sounds amazing. Though Chels and I were close to being on it ourselves, we’re more than happy to watch the pros at work. And of course we will live blog every bit of it for you…most likely over on We are not Martha…and I’ll be Twittering of course (@SusieA) and oh, probably Tumbl-ing too. All while trying to process every word coming out of Martha’s mouth. Life is absolutely lovely.

    I’m trying to think of a equivalent that would get me as excited as you are about seeing Martha. Maybe getting to see a taping of Grey’s Anatomy? Or maybe meeting Stephen Hawking. Yep, I’m way worse than you.

    Martha kind of creeps me out, but I am very happy that you got to attend.

    You need all the happies that you can get your little hands on, after the Tom Brady… unpleasantness.
