Extreme Makeover Build Team

As I type this it's 11:44 p.m. and my dear, sweet husband is still at work, and he doesn't know when he's coming home. It's amazing everything that goes into building a house in four days for a two-hour TV show. In just over four days, somewhere in Indianapolis, Ty Pennington will be yelling "Good Morning %^&#@ Family." Wow!

Last Friday, Estridge held an Extreme Pep Rally for their vendors and volunteers. Even though times are tough, every one of the vendors approached to donate time and materials has said "yes." And thousands of volunteers are ready to participate.

This is the Build Team with local news personality Kevin Gregory. (Bryan said he's really funny and VERY tall.)


  1. wow. hopefully it will be a bearable week for you all!

  2. I so wish we were going to be here so I could help you my friend! I am so excited for you guys though. How cool to see Bryan be a part of this. i know you are one proud wife. :)

  3. How cool to be involved in such a tremendous endeavor! My children wanted to know if Ty ate at your house last weekend?! We used to enjoy watching Extreme Home Makeover -- but always had to mute the TV when the owners discovered all the treasures in their "hew" homes -- as they invariably said, "Oh My ___!" about 50 times!!! Anyway, what a wonderful adventure for your dh and your entire family!
