Brandi and Michelle – Extreme Makeover – Burn Boot Camp Edition
September 4, 2012
There are few moments in our lives when we are presented with an opportunity to do something extraordinary. For most people, when the opportunity strikes to do something bold and courageous our fear of failure outweighs the incredible opportunity .

I got up out of my seat and started heading to my hotel room to contact them. As I was practically running through the halls of the MGM Grand with up to my hotel room I was reciting my e-mail in my head. Below is the email I sent them.
