Hysterial! I watched it on Friday! I couldn't stop laughing and couldn't believe I knew that crazy girl going nuts on Ellen...You are so freakin' cute! what was the grand total?

corryfever said...

i gathered up $970. but because ellen is the most generous gal around they round it up to a thousand!!! ( a blessing from tithing) the picture where i have a twenty on my stomach was 5 hours later when i started to itch and i found more money lodged in my clothes! boonah!

katie said...

I can hardly breathe...that was incredible. Besides looking absolutely gorgeous, you were killer cute. Next time you talk to Ellen tell her you have a friend that wants to met Portia. Have you seen Arrested Development?

corryfever said...

obsessed with arrested development!

Jimmy and Lindsey said...

My word you guys, that is awesome!! Tara you are hilarious! You were so cute up on the stage! Was it hard to get tickets to the show? You guys are livin it up down in LA, we are so happy for you guys!

Glenda said...

Hey i linked up to your blog! I need some help adding you to my list! Your blog is so cute! And you on the Ellen show, The funniest thing ever!!! You were so perfect for the part! How did they know how cute you would be! You are living the Califoenia life for sure!!

clegger said...

Tara, I love you! Absolutely hysterical. That is awesome. I think you were "made" for L.A. girl! Why didn't you move there sooner? I'm so jealous you got to hug Ellen, and go to American Idol and see the David's. How lucky are you!??? Sounds like Colt is lovin' it just as much as you are! When you are super bored this summer, make your way to AZ and we'll go swimming. I miss your guts cute girl!

Carly said...

Oliver and I are dying right now. Hilarious. Seriously. I love that they called your name, I can't get enough of it.

How much did you win?

clegger said...

Tara! I love you! this video is absolutely hysterial. You are the coolest girl ever. You are livin' the dream. I think L.A. has been the perfect fit for you. Why haven't you lived there your whole life?! I'm so jealous you got to see the David's perform live and you also got a live appearance on the Ellen Show. You go girl!!! Love and miss you lots. Come to AZ this summer and we'll go swimmin.

Bethers said...

Is this real??? Can this be MY darling Tara!!!??? I couldn't believe my eyes...almost like the elephant painting!! I have been out of town and I am so mad that I didn't see this live. You were so darling. I know Ellen loved you too!

Colby & Steph Stringham said...

Mama Mia said...

NOOOO WAYYYYYY! I had my heart rate up watching you get so excited! What a rush! This is a lesson to always be sweet, outgoing and happy... you won over Ellen! Bruce saw this live on tv and didn't realize it was you! So glad you got choosen...you are darling! Love that Ellen was picking up money for you and letting you go a few seconds longer!

Mama Mia said...

Kristy said...

I called my sister today and she told me that she saw you on Ellen. Luckily I dvr Ellen every day so I went straight home to see if it was still recorded and it was!!! You are so darling!! How lucky are you to have been chosen out of the crowd! That's amazing! I wish I had your life!

Preston Family said...

Ok, so I totally saw you on there (because I watch Ellen everyday) then my little sis told me you had a blog so I had to see if you posted about it. (This is Kacee (Erickson) Preston) You were so dang cute on there and I was dying when you got to play that money game! That is such an awesome experience! And check out your pic with Striker! How fun! You look so adorable! Glad you are doing well!
