Ready to Race!

The countdown to the Amazing Race is on, and D... and I are ready to go! We're packing light so we can travel quickly (and because we're too lazy to carry too much). When Phil says "Go!" we're off on our journey to $1 million!

You can read the profiles of all the other teams here, but only on this blog can you read the profile of Team Pajama Mamas:

Bubba's Sis and D... are moms and best friends from Houston, Texas. They've known each other for 7 years, and they don't itch. Having traveled together on numerous occasions, they don't worry about bickering or disagreeing like the other teams. "We're pretty much in sync," says Bubba's Sis. "We're strong Texas girls and we're gonna take this race."

Calling themselves "Team Pajama Mamas", Bubba's Sis and D... admit to being lazy, and plan to use that to their advantage in the race. "There's no need to run," says D... "We're all gonna get there, and who won the race, the tortoise or the hare? That's what I'm talkin' about."

Bubba's Sis is a stay-at-home mom with three kids - one at the Naval Academy and two at home. In her spare time Bubba's Sis likes to scrapbook, blog, and take naps. She hates to cook, and looks forward to the time off from it while on the race. "As long as I have chocolate, I'll be OK," she states. An aspiring writer, Bubba's Sis plans to chronicle each step of the race, providing humor and insight into the grand adventure.

D... works in the special education resource department at an elementary school, and her two kiddos are BFF's with Bubba's Sis' two kiddos. Fearing that it might be true that housework CAN kill you, D... prefers to play it safe in her spare time by reading or blogging. Even tho she can't read a map or drive a stick-shift, she's ready to offer moral support and enthusiasm to her teammate. And she has to do all the stuff Bubba's Sis is scared to do. Which might be a lot. Always handy with the camera, D... will provide everlasting memories of the race with her mad photography skilz.

Be sure to tune in to CBS Sunday night to see all the teams at the starting line at the world famous Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum - then come by here to see how Bubba's Sis and D... did in Leg One of The Amazing Race! It's gonna be fun!

Oh, yeah, you should so do this! Go PMs, go. Uh-oh. You might want to re-think the name. People might mistake you for the initials striking dread in men everywhere. Or, maybe, you can use that to your advantage: Fear PMS!
