We’re Going to Australia with Oprah!!!

For those few of you who didn’t hear us screaming when Oprah announced on her Farewell Season premiere show that she was taking us — and 297 other Ultimate Viewers — to Australia, here’s the video! You can catch us in the audience at 2:59 — Susan’s on the aisle in a blue shirt, grabbing a flag; Lois is to the left, in a yellow sweater, wiping her eyes; and Amy is next to her, in a blue patterned shirt, in shock!

We are thrilled, humbled, excited and grateful, and we enjoyed reliving the moment on our local San Diego Channel 8 news and in the San Diego Union-Tribune. What an amazing journey this has been, and we haven’t even gone on the trip yet!

  5. Loved going through this web site.
    My son Marc, left for UVA. I was lucky that he went to Furman University which is only 45 min from home. Know it’s 7 hours.

    Lucky for us mothers who have responsible kids.

    All going to Australia, have a great trip

    I would love to share a photo. Please instruct how…

  6. Congrats, if only I had known I could have cheered you on outside on the sidewalk, I live next door to Harpo studios. Great interview with my good friend Jane LaFazio!
