Brigade Parade

Things have been happening over here at the ‘ol Brigade lately.

Like the ridiculousness of my face in the above photo.

Additionally here are some other fun things:

I got an award from the Orange County Press Club for the cover story I wrote in the December issue of OC Family.

Which OH WOW, I was floored that I even got a nomination. It was an honor to be recognized and attend the Press Club event. Plus, I got to eat a fancy dinner with 5 forks, and perfect my golf clap as other writers were awarded too.

I wrote an article for the Orange County Register newspaper that was published on Tuesday:

And I’m featured on the talented and always adorable Curly Girl’s blog today!



Now I’m going to hibernate under a rock because this is all too much for me.


Holy cow. I am a die hard Curly Girl fan- even to the point of ditching Boston on our very first visit to go find her lovely shop in Belmont (about 30 minutes outside of the city). Once there I practically drooled over every single card/magnet/cutting board with her cute designs on them. (I may or may not have required a really large bag to carry all of the goodys I could not leave without…) Now to hear that you guys have teamed up? Mind blown. Congratulations! I look forward to reading your funny/inspirational/honest posts in 2 places rather than just one. Go girl!

Not surprised, not at all, your writing is witty and awesome! One of the view blogs that I follow and actually read! 😉

It’s always the ones who don’t pay attention in class who are the secret geniuses. Take that, Torrey Programers (unless you were secretly a part of them, too).
