Tomorrow morning (Thursday, July 30) we’re going to be on live TV! And we’re simultaneously excited and terrified. Virginia This Morning on CBS6 is central Virginia’s only live local talk show and they’ve asked us to stop by and chat about our adventures in home improvement. Talk about a nail biter! But we’re super excited to swing through and hopefully string together a few coherent sentences for about five minutes sometime during their 9-10am show.
So cross your fingers that we leave without saying anything too dorky or nonsensical. And feel free to tune in if you’re local (or check back for a clip of our little stint as soon as we get our mitts on it). Here’s hoping we live to tell the tale…
And speaking of crazy news, check out this mention of us in today’s New York Times! We’re still pinching ourselves.

You guys are superstars!! Too bad Burger can’t appear on TV ;-(
Wow, congrats! I hope you guys get the clip up so us non-locals can watch it!
Jill Stigs says
No tacos for John…………….LOL
Seriously, you guys will rock it, you both are very personable and cute!!
Can’t wait to see the clip.
You guys’ll do great! Sparkling personalities and a wealth of knowledge, you’ve got it in the bag. Congratulations on all the publicity, too!
Lauren L says
You guys will do great! Good luck!
CONGRATS!! Lots of luck to you both!!
Hooray for you two! The New York Times is HUGE! I work in PR and I can’t even land a placement in that paper. LOL! Good luck tomorrow!
Don’t be nervous!!!! You’ll do great!!
You guys are so big time, Congrats! I hope you’re able to get a clip!
Wow, Congrats! I have been reading for months but never commented before- you all are big time now :)
That is SO exciting!! Congrats you two! You are both talented and very good at what you do. Say a little prayer, take a deep breath, and be yourselves! We love you and the rest of world will too! Everything will be fantabulous!
Dana Miller says
Don’t sweat it… you guys will be great! Since I’m not in your area, I’m looking forward to the clip.
I had to do that for work last year and I know the feeling of excitement/nervousness. Just remember to keep smiling the whole time! And wear heavier-than-usual make-up.
Wow! You guys are just all over the place these days! Congrats on all the publicity you’ve received! Keep it up and good luck tomorrow!

Hey Youngsters, my hairdresser does spots for Virginia This Morning and if memory serves me right I believe they post the videos pretty soon after they air (same day). Good luck tomorrow! The two hosts seem very engaging so I predict hardly any weirdness or awkward pauses :)
The NYT article is showing up on MSNBC too: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/32190288/ns/today-today_home_and_garden/
We noticed that too! We were actually interviewed by the Associated Press who then shared the story with a few publications. Who knows where we’ll pop up next! Playboy?
Kevin M says
Nice mention in the NY Times article. I like that some companies are getting mad at folks for hacking their stuff. Would they rather lose the sale?
OMG – how cool is that??? NY Times – that’s huge!
Can’t wait to see the clip. And congrats on all the recognition you’ve been getting.
Who knows? “Young House Love” could become the next “This [Blank] House” (or even another Martha……!) I wonder if this isn’t the start of something great, and soon all your “old” readers will be able to say we knew you when. ;-)
Am I dreaming too big for y’all?
Kasey at thriftylittleblog says
Fun! I’m excited to see the clip.
That is amazing. You two should be so excited. Did you have any idea that this would happen?
Michele Daggar says
Wow!!! You guys should be so proud of yourselves. Can’t wait to see your interview.
You’ll do great. Good luck.
Holy crap! I cannot WAIT to see the clip! Congrats, Youngsters!
Nice! Next, you’ll have your own HGTV show! :)
Carol from Indian Springs says
Wow, big time here they come! Best of luck, I know you will do great. Can’t wait to see the clip. Too bad Burger can’t be included…
I know! We’re so bummed Burger can’t steal the show this time. Maybe we’ll sneak him in somehow…
Ack!!!! That’s awesome!!! :) Can’t wait to hear ALL about it. Oh, to still live in VA ;)
Jennifer S. says
I’m local and I’m gonna watch! Good luck!
Alicia Spilde says
Um, didn’t I say something along these lines the other day? First stop, local morning show, next stop prime time HGTV.
Congrats on the fantastic publicity. I’m super happy for you, and I love that I’ll be able to say that I knew you when.
OMG, how exciting!! You guys are going to be GREAT!
You guys will kick butt! Break a leg!
Jen Z. says
Congrats! that is great. I think I hear HGTV calling your names. That would be awesome! Can’t wait to see the clip.
Great press! I’m sure you’ll do fabulously.
You and John will do GREAT! I will definitely tune in….hopefully, you both are at the beginning of the show vs. the end. Awesome news!
The story has even made it to my neck of the woods in the Sydney Morning Herald (Sydney Australia). http://news.smh.com.au/breaking-news-technology/want-designer-looks-at-bigbox-prices-try-hacking-20090729-e0ca.html
aw, you two will do great! you are naturals! sending you positive, happy, no-nerves, juju all the way from california! be sure and post a link for us all to see once it’s aired.
jessica b says
How awesome for you guys! I was just in VA on vacation last week, but now I’m out of mrket for the show. I hope you’re able to post a clip soon, and I’m sure you’ll both do a great job. Just picture all of Virginia in their underwear, right?
Christie Stearns says
Hey guys, break a leg :-D You will be great on TV. You are both so entertaining in your videos. Maybe someday you’ll have your own show on HGTV :) or maybe not, are they the ones with the evil show that we don’t like anymore? hmmm…
Anyway, can’t wait to see the video clip, you will be awesome.
Hey! That’s great news. I am sure you will do great :) I am so excited for you!!! I am in Canada so won’t be able to watch it live but I can’t wait until you upload the clip! All the best!
COngrats you guys! You both MORE than deserve this!
Congratulations on both! I hope you never get so accustomed to this kind of attention that you become blase about such things. Your raw excitement and nervousness are part of your charm, so thanks for keeping it real. :) Have fun tomorrow!
Aw you guys are so sweet. We’re definitely planning to imagine the audience in their underwear. And maybe the hosts too if we get scared! We’ve heard great things about their team and they’ve been really great to work with so far so we’re hoping that we get through it unscathed! Stay tuned for that clip coming soon…
s (& j)
p.s. We’re still sad that Burger can’t work the crowd for us this time…
Good luck and congrats!
Congrats! That’s awesome that you are getting so much publicity – good luck! If you ever do get your own HGTV show you need to demand that the full episodes be posted online! I don’t own a TV, and I would be so sad if I only got the little 30 1-2 minute clips they post for other shows. :(
Good luck, though I’m sure you guys will do just great!
(How come whenever I follow one of your Twitter links I get a darn StumbleUpon toolbar at the top? It’s annoying!)
We use Stumble Upon to shorten our links so they fit into our Tweets. Hope it helps!

How exciting! I’m a local and also did a piece on VTM back in April(about party decorating on a budget). I was exhausted afterwards from all the nerves!! You will do great I’m sure. The crew are super nice! ; )
You guys will do just fine! Congrat’s!!
Why can’t Burger go?!!
