Shiny Happy Announcement

A couple months ago I shared with you guys that I had something really exciting to tell you about, but I couldn't tell you just yet. So you waited patiently while plans were made and details nailed down. Then you waited some more and I did too. Until now, because now I can share my big news!

So my big shiny non-secret news is that I am going be speaking on a panel at BlogHer Food '10!! AWESOME. I have been so excited for months and wanting to share this huge news with everyone and I finally can. Whew. OK the details, it's a values panel titled Our Food Future: Kids, Cooking and Health on Friday October 8th, 1:30-2:45. This basically a conversation between Diana Johnson (aka DianasaurDishes), Mrs. Q from Fed Up With School Lunch and myself about changing the way we feed our children and ourselves! Let's hope I can coherently link a couple words together and NOT come off as a stuttering fool. That would be nice, yes? Here is a link to the actual page on BlogHer with my actual name listed as someone who actually has something relevant to say.

And just because this is how my life rolls, I now do not have a range. Lets just say the time bake on/off knobs, pliers, a large blue hot flash and I had a run in. It was not pretty, well the blue flame was, but my husband decided after the flame and my leaping around that the 30 year old range had to go. SO out it went. I swear I was only trying to fix it not kill it, I would never want to kill my 30 year old range especially since I AM A FOOD BLOGGER. So the plan now is wait and decide what the plan is going to be. I can tell this is going to be good because the last time we decided to wait and make a 'good plan' was when we ripped the ceiling out of our kitchen. We still don't have a ceiling in the kitchen, 4 years later. FOUR. YEARS. no ceiling, 2 bare bulbs and some spider webs.

FOUR.


YEARS.

Peace and Love-



I'm linked up!

  6. Congratulations. I just stumbled upon your blog for the first time and that is huge!!! Also Diana is so fabulous, if you've never met her before, I think you will really enjoy her. I am so jealous and wish I were going to Blogher food! How did you get that gig, I'd be curious. Did they approach you? Was it something you applied for?
