Even MORE awesome fan videos!

We love you guys! Thanks for the support!

This one got cut off, but you know what she’s saying 🙂


Welcome to Crazytown. Population: Hannah & Grace

So, we just found out about an audition in the Dallas area this Saturday, May 2. And guess who is crazy enough to give it another shot?

That’s right, none other than Hannah and Grace. You only thought you were done with us! Looks like we’ll still be needing everyone’s help. Watch the blog for more updates and how you can help!

Thanks! (And don’t miss all the videos I just uploaded from this weekend! Be sure to check out my previous few posts and have a laugh on me)

Us at the casino. Waiting.


Dad pretending he’s going to go gamble away all his money. Ha HA! Yeah right!

(Dad did not, I repeat did NOT do any gambling on this trip. I don’t think he ever has for that matter, not even a poker game…he was just trying to be funny.)

More waiting. Hannah’s worn out.

Line starts HERE.


Even MORE WAITING! We’re No. 4 in line!


Us with PHIL!!! (sort of)


More videos from the trip! (Friday)

Check out Hannah’s navigational skills. Dad still doesn’t trust tomtom.

In this video we’ve just arrived at my uncle’s house in Oak Park. Watch my face, then watch my dad’s. It’s ridiculous. And HILARIOUS.

This is us getting all our application materials printed off and assembled for the race auditions!

Brief Update

Ok, so it’s been a long day, so I’m going to be brief.

We didn’t get to try out. Since it was inside the actual casino, security refused to let us step on the carpet. We talked to one of the head guys at the casino and he said there was no way I could enter the room where the casting was because you had to go through the casino to get there. Also, there’s some kind of law that says no one under 21 can step foot in the place or they get fined $100,000.

So, bummer.

But, it’s ok, we had a great time planning this campaign, learned a lot, made a ton of great contacts, and new friends as a result, and are just happy we gave it a shot and actually went for it.

I mean, I said from the beginning that this was the craziest thing I’d ever done, and I definitely stick by that statement. But man, it’s been so fun and so exciting, an adventure all on its own. And what’s life without a little craziness and spontaneity once in a while?

So, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU to everyone who helped us out with the campaign and supported us through it all! It’s been a real pleasure and we truly appreciate all the love and support.

And now, we get to spend the weekend in my favorite city! We already went to Millennium Park today, and Lake Michigan, and even went to a White Sox game! It’s been a blast, and we’re looking forward to the rest of the weekend with family!

Let me know if you have any suggestions for what we should do tomorrow! Thanks again guys. We couldn’t have done any of this without, and we’ve loved every minute of it.

Thanks for going on this adventure with us!

These videos cheered us up :)

Thanks Kristin and Kalyn! Your videos rock! You guys rock!

Thanks for making us smile. I love it.
