An Emmy for Kimber!

The 2010 New York Emmy Awards Gala was held Sunday night at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square.
It was a very formal event, one that Brett and Kimber were looking forward to attending
since all the big names in broadcasting would be in attendance.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, Kimber was nominated in 4 catagories,
but she assured me that "there is no way that she will win"
since New York region is the biggest market in the country.
She convinced me that she "will never win"
because she was up against broadcasters that were much more experienced.
She was just excited to attend the event and get dressed up.
As Kimber's mom, there is something I learned long ago.
Don't ever say "never" or "there is no way" to anything Kimber sets her mind to.
Sunday night was no exception.
Kimber's story, "Sauce on the Run" won an Emmy in the catagory of Spot News Story.
She was stunned, shocked and elated to be awarded the Emmy!
We are proud and honored to share in her accomplishment!
No one works harder and is more deserving than her!
I stole the following from her blog. She wrote this just hours after receiving the award.
I thought it was cute and wanted to share.

I feel very blessed that I've known what I wanted to do since I was a little girl. Over the past nearly five years, I've had the incredible opportunity of pursuing my childhood dream: to report the news. Looking back, I realize I was probably an odd child. I liked to watch the news when I was in elementary school. I knew who was anchoring at what time and on what station. I've been fortunate to work as an reporter and anchor at several stations now. It's a profession that is crazy and exhausting, but at the same time exhilarating and energizing. Tonight was one of those nights! ~Kimber

Kimber is all smiles, as she poses with her Emmy for the professional photographers!

My favorite photo from the night! What a cute couple!
Brett is so proud! What a great support he is!
