The One with The Price Is Right Turned The Grove Mall

Wednesday, March 17, 2010

Happy St. Patrick's Day! You better be wearing green OR ELSE.................!

Last week we and the Bybees tried to get on The Price Is Right and make it big. However we showed up about two hours too late. Live'n'learn. Now we know. So instead we walked around The Grove - the hoitiest toitiest mall I've ever been to.

Here's the CBS studio where The Price Is Right is filmed.

So close yet so far.

Paige'n'Chris (what's Chris looking at besides the camera?)

Blake'n'Erica - cute as ever.

LA - I mostly took this picture just cuz I think it's cool that you can see the Griffith Observatory from pretty much everywhere in the valley.

"Welcome to The Grove"

Our first stop was the restroom where there were cloth towels to dry your hands, marble counter tops, and maids/janitors in fancy uniforms. And a tip dish that was full of bills and coins.

Just being silly.

No outdoor mall is complete without a fountain! Plus there were giant koi swimming around in the water. I could stare at them for hours.

Even the ash trays are decked out. Not a butt in sight and the sand has been embossed with a leaf design.

Anthropologie. Swoon. Their window displays never cease to amaze me and this particular window didn't disappoint. Can you tell what these flower thing-a-ma-jiggies are?

Plastic bottles that have been spray painted and cut into petals. GENIUS. So easy! Why didn't I think of it first?

Hopefully we'll be able to organize a group of 25 of us to get on The Price Is Right soon cuz then we automatically get tickets without having to be there at 6am. I can just see all the boys in their blue dental scrubs and the wives in USC gear. Some day.


  1. I love the price is right... watch it everyday ... well.. have it on everyday! Love seeing your pics... I have been there... was so cool. I was on the lookout for celebs... never saw any! :(

  2. David and I tried to get on The Price is Right multiple times. It is hard unless you get there super early. & by early I mean like 3am. Crazy. We really wanted to go while Bob was still hosting but never got in. Now that Drew is hosting we can't seem to get excited about it. Oh well. One of our good friends, Joe won the showcase showdown! It was awesome. He got like a hot tub and a car and stuff.

  3. gah. paige your blog never ceases to stab me in the heart. geez i miss home. our 1st apt [pre pasadena] was right down the street from the grove.

    they also tape american idol at cbs studios, if you're into that kind of thing :)

    the grove is good for celeb watching. also fun @ xmas time...they blow fake snow from the roofs.

    and i'm wearing green today!

  4. WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You tried to get on the show and didn't even TELL ME????? HELLO!!! ha ha whats up with that? Just teasing....we got there a before 5 am I believe and there was already a line! FYI The sooner the better!! The first tickets are handed out at 6 am then you have to go back a few hours later and get yet another ticket, then you wait and wait and wait until they do interviews....BUT, a BIG group however, would be awesome!! They love big groups and they love bright colors!! The producers told us they look good on camera...Oh Paige I hope you get on, if you do you BETTER CALL ME!! :) Loves I cannot believe it has been almost a year since I Was on the Price is Right!! WOW

  5. The fancy ashtray sand is KILLING me! Good luck getting on the show!

  6. That does look like quite the mall! I could probably get in some trouble there! Looks like a fun day!

  7. Count us in, now you just need to find 21 more :)

  8. That would be so cool! A proper old school game show like that...not on here anymore but I am following Aaaaaaa-merican Idol and would love to be in the audience for that.

    The Anthropolgie window display is beautiful - genius idea making flowers out of bottles! Just ordered a dress from there...fingers crossed we get the weather so I can wear it!

  9. How cool would that be to get on Price Is Right?! Next time! :-) Super cute pics. though! :-)

  10. dude, if you think the grove is crazy, check out the americana in's like the grove on steroids! LOL. it's also near portos which is yummy :)

  11. Oooh, fun! Love all the photos! Sorry you didn't make it to the show though. Hopefully, you'll get to try again another time! :-D

    LOVE that Anthro display! Seriously, they DO have the best displays! I need to go there again, but I really don't want to because I'm trying to save money! LOL. I DO need those drawer pulls though... ;-)

  12. LUUUUUUUCKY! i have been dying to go to the grove. just to people watch even! it looks like you two are having a complete blast in ca.

  13. Chase and I would SO be in your group of 25 or more. Just let me know when! teehee!

  14. That was such a fun day - even though we didn't get in! :) We'll have to get the group thing going!

  15. i'm not sure that you will even like me after i admit that i have never been in Anthropologie. gasp.

    the stuff looks fantastic.

    i need to make a special trip. i will think of you the whole time. i might even blog about it.
