LOST

Remember how the show LOST had a scene that took place at the house I grew up in?

My house!

Our entryway!

What's more, in my bedroom?


It didn't look like this when I lived there!

I remember cause it just happened. Jack Shepherd was in my childhood bedroom. I couldn't believe it when my mom called and told me. But there it was. Our house. On TV. I'm kinda trippin' out.

(Just in case, you didn't know, I was lucky enough to grow up in Hawaii. And of course, that's where they film LOST.)

Meredith said...

SpiderWomanKnits said...

omg! never wash your sheets again ;) but seriously, how trippy is that? no way! kara, that is so cool. we are huge Lost fans (although this season is not making me happy, they better wrap this stuff up!)

Rachele Alpine said...

That is so cool! Now you can say that Matthew Fox was in your bedroom! :)

I don't ever watch Lost. HOLY COW! Oh look! The climbing tree in the front yard. How many hours did we spend climbing that tree and doing cartwheels on that front lawn. And your room. O.K. I will admit I didn't sleep MANY nights in that room because I would chicken out and go home, but fond fond memories. SO COOL!

P.S. I (Heart) the white garage door. I don't EVER remember ever seeing that door closed growing up.

That's crazy. My husband watches Lost faithfully, but I usually opt out. Last night, though, I sat through most of it and actually saw this episode. Very cool.

Diane said...

So much fun watching the episode last night and seeing our house in LOST. Good thing I was observant!

Jeff said...

Maybe you should return to your childhood home and stalk Lost stars.

ali said...

That is insane!! I'm pretty sure I'll never experience that in my lifetime. Unless Jon starts making scads of money and we decide to move to Malibu (Or Manoa apparently). Is it ok that I'm a little jealous?

Erin said...

I am freaking out too!!! I can't believe our house was on LOST! We are famous!

Erin said...

Oh, and too bad they didn't leave the bubble curtains up. That would have been awesome.

Kara said...

You are so right, Erin! The bubble curtains would have just added the right touch. Funny, I thought those were permanently attached to the wall. Guess not.

Julie said...

wow, that's crazy!! that must have been incredibly surreal. I love Lost, I'm a total addict.

ty and megs said...

crazy! we don't have tv, so we watch lost at day late on the computer. now i'm even more excited to watch tonight! does that make me famous by assiciation because i spent A LOT of time in that house!?

seriously cool!

Chancy said...

That is so cool. I used to be addicted to LOST and then I fell off the wagon, but now I'm thinking I should probably Netflix all the seasons I haven't seen.

If only I could have grown up in Hawaii...

Amander said...

You guys are too cool. Seriously.

Stephanie B said...

That is so neat. I know I get excited when I see my city in movies and am like hey I walk down that street everyday! So im with you on that is so cool!!

Juli said...

They were filming in Jeff's lobby at work a couple of weeks ago. Unless they start shooting at Wal-Mart or Safeway, though, I doubt I'll ever see them.

Stacy said...

Wow, how cool!!

Melanie said...

I live here and had no idea they filmed in the valley!

Disentangled said...

simply awesome! and how fun to see your house on tv. The closest I ever came was seeing one of our local neighborhood streets on CHiPs :)

Chocolates for Breakfast said...

are you kidding me, that is so much fun...i had better watch it so i won't be totally lost. how rude that they redecorated?!

Chef Messy said...

Wow, that is insane! Jack Shephard. In your bedroom.

shopgirl said...

That is the BEST post EVER! you are so winning in the 'random celebrity siting' category! You can say "jack shepherd was in my bedroom" and no one needs any elaboration on the timeline. (are you more of a "jack" girl or a "sawyer" girl? )

amanda said...

WHAT?! That's awesome. I'm more amazed at how well they passed off the house to look like it was in LA and not Hawaii. I've been to Hawaii twice but I didn't know that there is housing that doesn't have that "tropical" feel to it (meaning built to withstand tropical weather). I thought they did those scenes in CA. Cool!!
