I’ve been in contact with Michael Barnes, entertainment editor at the Austin American-Statesman, and he’s interested in doing a blog post about the campaign! Be sure to watch his blog this week and see if there’s a mention of us. If you’re in the Austin area, pick up a copy of the paper and check for a mention there as well!

Thanks so much Michael! Hope it works out, we’d love a shout out.
Whoooo! Hannah and I got featured in the Greenville Herald Banner this morning! Check out the story here, along with a picture of us at the bottom of the Great Wall, in Beijing China!
If you’re in the Greenville area, go buy a copy of the paper, tell all your friends, and keep spreading the word! Thanks guys! And a special thanks to the Banner staff! Love you guys!
My new friend Amber just created a poll on CBS’ Web site that says:
“Will Hannah & Grace be selected for TAR 15?”
So, what I need everyone to do is to CLICK HERE TO VOTE YES AND LEAVE A COMMENT! Now, before you can vote or leave a comment, you have to join the CBS community and login, but man, it’s so worth it guys, and I would really appreciate it! If we can get a huge number of people to take the poll and leave comments then that will surely catch CBS’ attention and give us a better shot at being cast in TAR 15! (The Amazing Race 15)
Please Please PLEASE do this for me guys! I’ll love you forever 🙂
