Happy birthday to my brother who turned 30 over the weekend. We embarrassed him with balloons and public attention. Can’t you tell he’s just thrilled?


We also went out to the Kansas City Chiefs game on Sunday for a bit of tailgating. It was surprisingly cold (if you can’t tell my stylish hat, scarf and mittens), but tons of fun. The only thing missing was my oldest brother who lives out in California. Yeah, don’t feel bad for him.

Next up, Vegas! Funny enough, my brother-in-law is also turning 30 this week. We’re making a whole family vacation out of it. I’ll be going by Nick Papageorgio for the next few days. I’ve still got lots of packing and hydrating to do. Plenty of sequins and sparkle to come…
