Some of us live for the Amazing Race Becky, if the race was no longer there would be no reason to have internet  :lol:
Counting the days, watching for new commericals, waiting on EP1 press release, a title for EP1 would be nice, maybe Saturday if lucky .....  :wohoo:

Hi Becky/Brooke's Mom/Sweet Tea!

We are thrilled to have been any comfort to you at all--and all I can say is about time we got some more Southern ladies on around here! :hearts: We often stay up all night around here ourselves so chime in anytime, we always can provide a nice pitcher of "sweet tea"!

It means so much to hear that we helped a little bit, and can't wait to see the girls in action! Hope you have a wonderful premiere party--will you send us some pictures? We'd love to see them!

Thanks so much for letting us know, and for joining in all the fun here!

Hey there Ken and Peach!  Thanks for the kind welcome! 
Sweet Tea has a special meaning for the south as you probably know Peach.  Anytime Brooke has traveled, that is the one thing she misses most about home so I always make a point to have her a big glass of sweet iced tea when I pick her up at the airport!  A little taste of the south! 
Although I love SC Peach, I grew up in Atlanta so I will always have a little Georgia red clay running through my veins! 

We'll take lots of pictures at the party and get them to you as soon as we can...anyone close enough to Columbia, SC is welcomed to come too!!!  Ahhhh...let's see, I believe the date is
SEPTEMBER 28!!!    :yess:

S.C. duo ready for ‘Amazing Race’
The contestants on the upcoming season of “The Amazing Race” will face a new set of challenges, like a trek to a floating city and trips to Cambodia and Kazakhstan.

But are they ready for the girls in pink?

One of 11 teams set to race around the world, Marisa Axelrod, 22, and Brooke Jackson, 24, hope to make South Carolina proud with a lethal combination of Southern charm and quick wit.

“Some people might buy into the dumb blond stereotype,” Axelrod says. “But I’d like to say we’re pretty smart.”

Here are a few things you should know about this Southern belle duo before tonight’s season premiere:

• Jackson is a graphic designer from Columbia and former cheerleader. Axelrod is a broadcast journalism major at USC and a jazz and tap dancer from Spartanburg.

• When they met at a USC football game three years ago, they were wearing the same outfit. “We do a lot of matching,” Axelrod said. “Pink is our favorite color.”

• Axelrod and Jackson laced up their tennis shoes for frequent running sessions to prepare for the physical challenge of the show.

• International travel shouldn’t be much of a stretch for them. Jackson studied in Spain and Axelrod has traveled to Paris, London and Amsterdam.

• They’ve never had a fight and relied on their good communications skills to guide them through the challenges.

• They may make it look easy on TV, but “The Amazing Race” is tough work. “I don’t think anyone understands how hard it is,” Axelrod says. “You’re on the spot and you don’t have a chance to think.”

Oh Becky!

Thank you for sharing those with us! It looks like a wonderful party!

I thought the girls did great, and their outtake videos are cute as they can be.  Hopefully they were pleased with their edits?

And I see a family resemblance between the Moms and the daughters! :hearts:
