Urban Outsiders At Our Home

Entries are listed from recent to oldest-- just like with most blogs-- so if you want the whole story from the beginning, start in the archives.

HGTV Airs Our First Commercial!

We finally got to see a small glimpse of our yard on TV with the new commercials for HGTV's Urban Outsiders. They have a really short one where you see Matt and a worker planting an olive tree, but the longer one really features our place.

Here's the announcer: From New York to LA, Matt James is on a mission. He's got a passion for turning impossible places... (insert this image of our backyard...)
(followed by Matt in this image saying, "Sheesh!")
Announcer: ...into lush spaces. (insert an image of someone else's yard.

Now, this IS Matt in our yard... but you'll notice the wood battens are up on the wall, so this is actually when he first saw the work done after being laid up for a couple days.

But here he is trying to wheel things through our tiny alley.
And here's the exciting logo!
Okay, so when is our episode?

Well, the dates have changed again! And once again, WE'RE THE PREMIERE EPISODE. (Okay, I'm done getting excited about this because it could change again. But our friend Jerry called this afternoon excited about seeing our yard on TV. Fun!)

We'll keep you updated as the show goes on, and once it does premiere then we'll really put up some other photos to showcase the yard.
