IMG_5605One of the great things about living in Monmouth County, New Jersey is that New York City is only about an hour away. It is wonderful to live nearby many iconic sites such as the Empire State Building, Time Square, etc.. and to live close enough to enjoy all the arts, fashion and Broadway shows that New York City has to offer. A one can’t miss thing to do while visiting NYC is to attend a live taping of a show. There is no shortage of shows to choose from.  Here are just some of the shows that one can be a part of.

Recently, The Meredith Vieira Showinvited the sisters of Alpha Phi, the Seton Hall University chapter, to be part of a live taping. In an effort to promote unity among all the Greek life that exists on campus, Kayla Weinman, 2015 President of the chapter, invited other active sororities on campus to join the Alpha Phi sisters, plus, I too was invited as I am an Alpha Phi mom.  Yay! Lucky me!

You just know that somewhere in that group is a future leader or two.  Even Meredith herself took time after the show to come and personally greet all the sisters and doled out some words of wisdom. She even made time for a photo op. Thank you Meredith, very gracious of you.

Oh, yes, if you notice in the picture above….that is truly Hoda Kotb. Girls caught her on the way to taping her own show. Her personality and that smile are just infectious!

All in all…it was a fun day exploring NYC afterwards. We invite you to join in the fun next time too!
