Here We Go...

What can I say - another night, another Idol party, another tv news truck in front of our house. I can't imagine what our neighbors are thinking about us. We'll see how many "For Sale" sign pop up tomorrow... :)

This time, they did a live remote from our living room for the 10:00 news. They interviewed Sarah, Chris' wife (and my assistant!), to lead off the story. She did an awesome job. For some reason, they put my face on there again. That can't help ratings. I will post the link to the video here tomorrow - along with some pics of the chaos that has become the Surratt house.

Oh yeah...Chris Sligh is in the top 24!!! How unbelievably cool is that?!? My friend, Chris, who two weeks ago was hanging out in our office every day because he didn't have internet at his house, is going to be famous now. I always knew that it was just a matter of time before he was "discovered", but this is freakin' ridiculous! I'm just giddy to be watching it all happen. On to the semifinals!

UPDATE: Here is the link to the news story. Click on the video "Local singer advances to Idol's top 24".

When he needs his officially sanctioned SeacoastGoingToHollywood blog, just let me know and I'll hook him up!

I saw the FoxNews blurb about you guy's party. I thought I was having the "Official Greenville Chris Sligh Makes Me Giddy Party." :) Actually, the funny thing is most of my friends and I don't know Chris. We are good friends with his brother Jon who is unfortunately in Germany right now. Hopefully Chris's family gets to come over if/when Chris wins American Idol. rock on.

Chris - I work with Mendy over at BI-LO and we are pulling for Sligh! Great blog by the way, Mendy has been working on us to come check out Seacoast as we are still searching for a good home church here in Greenville! Have a great day.

Hope everything at the church is going well. I need to do some more studying about your church.
