Attending the 2008 Daytime Emmy Awards!! :) :)  
Last night was Daytime Emmy night and although Van did not win :( :(, it was an incredible evening meeting all the members of the message board that I post on and actually getting the opportunity to meet Van and Jake. :) I'm still a bit incoherent from the red eye flight and then spending the whole wonderful day at the Emmys without any sleep..., but I wanted to quickly post a few pictures that I took last night.

Getting the opportunity to meet Van, even for the short time that I did, was amazing.... He was the sweetest, warmest person! Even with all the craziness of the press, everything going on that day, the tremendous crowd, he still made such an effort to connect with the people who approached him.

I have to admit being SOOO nervous about meeting him, but when I introduced myself he smiled warmly and shook my hand. I told him, "I flew from Hawaii to see you." His smile grew INCREDIBLY adorable and he said, "That's wonderful!! Well, I flew from New York to see you!!" He's SOOO adorable!!

Possibly the nicest thing about the evening, besides confirming what everyone has said about how WONDERFUL Van and Jake really are in person, was meeting all the other Nuke fans. It was just all around a wonderful, tiring, but VERY exciting evening. I think that adrenaline was keeping me awake through most of the Emmys, but once we all headed to Cat & The Fiddle for dinner after the show - I was wiped... I could barely eat because I couldn't keep my eyes open...

But, onto the photos... :)

Note: I know you all won't do this but this is a public post so here's the side note:
Please do not take or post these photos anywhere - thank you!!

Jake and Van looked INCREDIBLE on the red carpet!!

They were nice enough to pose for a few minutes for us on their way into the awards.

Matt actually took this incredible picture with my camera.

Jessica and Nicole with Van after the ceremony.

I finally got to take a picture and meet Van!!! YAY! He was GORGEOUS in person!
Look at that smile and those eyes - Pictures don't do this man justice, he's absolutely beautiful!!

Champayne, David, Tiffanie, & Nicole

Getting to meet Jessica and Nicole were among the highlights of Emmy day!

I got to see my dear friend Laura there who runs the "Willen" MB - who I met in my Chad Brannon / GH / ZEm days!!

Today I kind of took it easy, caught up on all my sleep, and actually missed the 3pm matinee at the Skirball Center. I did, however see Stewart Calhoun in his one act play for Moving Arts tonight. But more on that after I collapse... It's been quite a two days...

Big HUGS!!

wonderful pics, what a great time you must've had. Happy to read everything worked out the way you wanted it to? How are you elseway, haven't heard from you in a while... Never know when you're actually home, you seem to run from one L.A. trip to another *grin*

Totally!! Van has to be one of the sweetest people I have ever met - and he's GORGEOUS beyond belief!! The one thing that wouldn've made the day even more special is if Van won...

And thanks so much for your comment - I've been SOOOO busy lately and hardly online for fun... :P Work has been taking over my life recently and of course my trips to LA. I'll actually be here for quite a while this time... Almost 5 days. :)

Hope you're well!! HUGS!

I'm glad, it sounds like that you are having a nice time. Thanks for sharing it and the great pictures! Big hugs to you, Sheri!
Sheri: Luke & Noah 3shutterbug93 on June 22nd, 2008 04:53 pm (UTC)
Thank you for your comment!! It was such a whirlwind day... I think I'm still trying to recover! :D I was at the Kodak Theatre at 11:00am and didn't leave from dinner until well after 11:00pm --- LOOOONG day... :)

But a nice one and I'm glad that I got to meet everyone that I did - and Van... he's a 100 times more GORGEOUS in person!! Pictures DO NOT do that man justice!! :)

Thanks for your comment, Andrea!! The Emmys were so much fun!! I loved getting to meet everyone from the message board and WOW - Van is SUCH a beauitful person (inside and out) I was just SOOOO thankful to have had the opportunity to meet him. My weekend is complete, I can go home now! :) Oh, wait... I still want to see the 2 Kevins on Monday... What am I thinking? ;)

Thanks for your comments!!
ajayne on June 23rd, 2008 04:55 am (UTC)
I'd definitely stick around to see the two Kevins. *Hubba hubba* :D Have a fantastic time!

Yay! These pictures are awesome! You look great all fancied up for the Emmys! I'm glad you had a good time & got to meet Van.
Thanks for sharing your adventures!
Sheri: Luke & Noah 2shutterbug93 on June 22nd, 2008 04:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks for your message!! And when we were there, I could care less what was happening on stage, the entire time I was watching the tables... :) So watching the telecast that my hubby recorded for me should be interesting. It'll be like watching it for the first time. :D

BTW, I have serious love for your icon!! I LOVE Van as a blonde... :D
zortrana: Van/Lukezortrana on June 22nd, 2008 05:41 pm (UTC)
You are certainly welcome to take the icon. It's just a picture I found somewhere.
Sheri: Luke & Noah 3shutterbug93 on June 23rd, 2008 06:38 am (UTC)
Thanks so much, though I fear if I did ever use it, I'd never be able to get any work done... In fact, since I've changed my Facebook avatar, I can't win a single game of WordTwist because I stare too much at it... ;)
waytoocoolrevwaytoocoolrev on June 22nd, 2008 09:34 pm (UTC)
Cute, cute, cute! I'm so glad you went and had so much fun - despite the lack of sleep!
Sheri: Luke & Noah 3shutterbug93 on June 23rd, 2008 06:41 am (UTC)
Thanks for your comments!! I had a lot of fun - maybe a bit too much - it was hard for me to get going on Saturday... ;)

and because I was talking about it above, I thought I'd tell you too - but since I changed my FB avatar, I've been unable to win a match of Word Twist because all I do as the clock is running down is stare at the avatar. ;) I know, no excuses - but I think I need to change it - it's waaaay too distracting! ;)
karmastyxkarmastyx on June 24th, 2008 03:38 am (UTC)
You look so pretty! :)
Sheri: Luke & Noah 3shutterbug93 on June 24th, 2008 03:20 pm (UTC)
Awwww, you're too sweet, Laura! Wish you were there - I thought about you when they introduced the AMC people! :) But I think meeting and experiencing how sweet Van is was truly a highlight of the trip for me. Well, that and last night - which I will never forget - it was AMAZING!
BOOM! goes the dynamite!: thumbs up by Peyton by doublewhoopeemslauren2930 on June 24th, 2008 04:24 pm (UTC)
I just pimped your pictures in my LJ. a couple of days late, but still... and you and Van are very cute together. :D
Sheri: Luke & Noah 2shutterbug93 on June 24th, 2008 05:23 pm (UTC)
Awww, thanks Lauren!! Remember, I have you to thank for my Nuke addiction... and I'll be forever grateful to you for that!

Van was a dear - he has such a warm and charming personality... He's SUCH a beautiful person - in just so many ways.

Sheri, you really look GREAT in those pics (even though I'm sure you *FELT* sweaty after being cooped up in that theatre for hours on end!)

Wasn't Sherri Shepard from The View hosting the Daytime Emmys this year?
Sheri: Luke & Noah 3shutterbug93 on June 27th, 2008 03:47 pm (UTC)
Awww, thanks for the nice picture comments! It actually wasn't too bad INSIDE the theatre, what was a killer was the heat waiting to get in... :P

And Sherri Shepard did host the Emmys this year (along with Cameron Mathison) - the Emmy show itself was nothing really special, but I did like that they had table seating (kind like the Golden Globes.) It gave us much more to look at and watch during the moments which had nothing to do with either Van or Jake... ;)
