Cali Trip: Day 3

On our third and final day in LA, my cousin arranged something very special for us. She has this friend, Oscar Nunez, who you MIGHT recognize from NBC's hit show The Office or the 2009 blockbuster The Proposal, who offered to have us come on set during filming of an episode of The Office (our favorite show).

Karen jumped on his offer, which, of course, made us very, very happy! We arrived on set in the morning and got to go around meeting the directors, writers, and most importantly, the ACTORS! We toured the outside of the building/parking lot, the warehouse, the office/break room. We even got to sit in the green room and watch a scene or two being filmed.

Although the whole day was awesome, I have to admit that both of our favorite part was meeting the talent! Shaking hands with Steve Carrell, taking bathroom breaks with John Krasinkski (obviously that was a Phil experience), hanging out with Oscar in the green room, etc.

I have to admit, that after meeting the actors, Phil and I both completely fell in LOVE with Ed Helms! Phil has a huge man crush on him and I completely understand why. He is SO nice and friendly and FUNNY (imagine that, a comedian is funny....). During a break from filming, he came right up to us and started talking to us about our trip, etc. Our only regret of the day was not getting a picture with him!

Although we were not allowed to take pictures during filming, of the actors (without permission), or of the "office" set, we did mangaget to snap a few pics during break.
