Announcing…Walk Through AUSTRALIA!!

He looked at me over our sweet potato burritos and said, Seriously.


You’re seriously going to do this.

*Sweet wifely smile.* Do what?

You’re SERIOUSLY going to photoshop our heads with kangaroos….and Crocodile Dundee??

*long, thoughtful pause while picking up butter knife.*

That’s not a knife. THIS is a knife.

So yes, it’s true. When I was thinking of how to announce this post I had visions of me riding piggy back on a kangaroo running through my head. And Mick Dundee walking down dark alley way streets with us. I can’t help it, I’m excited. And excited people do crazy things. Like misuse photoshop.

A little over a month ago, we attended the “What If” Conference in Mexico, where we met our two of our new best friends in the world (literally) Janine & Lauren. In those four days, the four of us became instant friends-sharing dreams, laughing a ton, and bonding over Mars bars and Pringles potato chips. Pringles are universal, my friends. On the last day, we sat poolside and dreamed our biggest dreams. Janine said something to the effect of hey, you should come to Australia and do a Walk Through. And I guess we said something along the lines of ok! Because four weeks and a flurry of planning emails back and forth later, we are ready to announce not one, but TWO Austrailia Walk Throughs!!

(As you can see, we compromised and I just photoshopped us on top of the world. Which is pretty much how I’m feeling right about now. I promise we’re not this tall in real life)

The Australia Walk Through dates are as follows:

Walk Through Sydney: May 10-11th
Walk Through Brisbane: May 15-16th

The seats will officially go on sale tomorrow night at 5pm EST in America, which if my math is right is 9am Wednesday morning in Sydney, and will be available on the Walk Through website HERE.

But we’re also doing something extra special: for anyone who facebooks, tweets AND blogs in the next two days that we’re bringing Walk Through down unda and does a post on why YOU wanna come, just shoot us an email with those links and we’re going to pick one lucky winner for each city to receive a FREE seat. Plus to everyone who enters, we’ll send you a code for over $200 off your seat to either one of the Australia stops! It doesn’t get much better than that! :)

We can’t wait to see you there! Where we’ll throw another shrimp on the barbie! :)
So much love,

And PS: can we just give it up for the two girls who got this whole crazy adventure started?? We love you Lauren & Janine!!

    For those of us who are desperate to come and enter, but don’t have a blog, is posting on our business FB page an acceptable alternative as long as we fb on our personal page and tweet it also?
