I mentioned earlier this week that I had some big news for y'all. Without further ado...

Dago popped the question. He'd been sort of hinting at it for a while, doing research, and then last weekend we were snuggled up together, and he asked

"Would you co-host a podcast with me?"

Of course, I said yes! He's talked about starting one himself or with various bro-friends ever since I met him, but the stars are all finally aligned and I get to be his partner in crime!

The podcast is called Breakfast for Dinner, inspired by our own lifestyle, obviously. We'll talk about all of our favorite things: pop culture, social justice, television, soccer, fashion, music, and our really funny lives. We have all of these wonderful, deep, intellectual, totally hilarious conversations together in the car, on the couch, and getting ready for bed, so we're going to start recording them for everyone to hear.

We've already got the script outlined for our first episode, which we'll record Friday evening. This is going to be such a fun project for us to work on together, and a really cool side project for the blog too. I haven't quite figured out what it will look like yet, but I'll be posting the pod somewhere on here so you can listen if you're interested.

What kind of stuff would you like to hear us talk about? We wanna know!

Follow Breakfast for Dinner on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.
Our episodes will be available on SoundCloud and iTunes.

Okay, one more announcement! October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), a cause very close to my heart. For new followers, I work as an advocate at a DV helpline. One of the most important parts of my job is educating about healthy relationship behaviors. In honor of DVAM, I'm going to post a handful of open letters to various well-known people who could learn a thing or two about healthy dating. I'll post the first one up tomorrow and a few more throughout the month.

ps. did i totally fool you into thinking dago proposed?
