Oh yes!  I was able to tour the set of  Grey’s Anatomy while on my amazing adventure in Los Angeles.  Can you imagine walking onto the set of your very favorite nighttime drama?  Ah, I felt like I was home LOL  Not only were we given an amazing tour of the Grey’s Anatomy set, but it was given by none other than Jessica Capshaw AKA “Dr. Arizona Robbins” (below)! Grey’s Anatomy” airs Thursdays 9/8 Central on ABC.

Was I staring?  Absolutely, she’s gorgeous!  LOL  During our tour of the set we were able to come into the actual bay where the ambulance comes in on the show and walk in through the hospital doors and past the admissions desk where they ACTUALLY shoot the show!  Okay, okay, I’m a little too excited over all of this, but this is Grey’s-flippin’-Anatomy!  Then we walk over the “Grey + Sloan Memorial Hospital”   Am I really here?  As you can see, the set looks a lot like it does on television.

We were also given a tour of the most amazing part of the Grey’s set; Meredith and Derek’s dreamhouse AKA “Merder’s Dreamhouse”.  Do you remember Meredith’s  “house of candles” in  episode 16 of season 4?  Well, I certainly do!  It was amazing.  What is even more amazing is that I was able to stand in the middle of their living room, kitchen, and *ahem* bedroom (all pictured below)!

After touring the set; we were able to sit down with the costume designer: Mimi Melgaard  and props master: Angela Whiting. This is where we were able to see the amazing costumes used on the set (pictured below)!  It was fascinating to actually see and feel the props from the show and learn about how they are made.
