Happy Brittany as Miss USA?

I think by now most of you who stop by Happy Brittany from time-to-time have gained a pretty accurate perspective of who I am. I have been so honored with the opportunity to share my mission, personality, and lifestyle with such a diverse and fabulous audience on this blog. My hope is to continue to expand my audience and reach out to as many people as I possibly can. I love, more than anything, to simply make someone else happy. My life is so tiny, so small, and yet such a huge blessing. This life is my one-and-only, I will never get another. I have to use this life, my only life, for something bigger than it really is. This life is not for me to keep to myself, it's for me to share and spread. There is a purpose to this, and everyday I discover small fragments of the grand canvas that I will one day reflect back on with a happy heart.

If you don't already know I am a pre-kindergarten teacher (no, I don't just work at a pre-school, I have an actual teaching job at a public school) with a marketing degree. For the past two years, thanks to Teach For America, I have been a part of a movement... a movement centered around change in the places that need it most. I strive relentlessly on a daily basis to close the achievement gap because I genuinely believe that one person can make a difference and that this issue will not go away. Every child in this country deserves an incredible education. Every child deserves to know their value and worth and hear how incredible they are daily (believe it or not this is not the case for many children). Every child needs to be challenged and inspired to advocate for an incredible life, the same way I was. Every child is capable of a life full of love, joy, happiness and opportunity. This is what motivates me in everything that I do... my desire to teach and lead, my desire to write & illustrate children's books, my desire to educate all people I encounter on important & relevant issues, my desire to blog, my desire to be myself, and my desire to hold the title of Miss USA.

If you also don't already know I am very quirky. I sing songs while I drive, paint anything I want, eat too many sweets, worship glitter, endeavor to gain knowledge, adore people & cats, dance whenever I feel like it, and talk way too much. I have flaws that I embrace and strengths that I refine....okay, enough... I know you already know plenty about me and if you don't it's all written here & exposed in this telling blog.

If you are inspired by my mission then you are just the person I am looking for. For the first time in history online voters can have a say in who will be the next Miss USA (goosebumps!!). It's very (very!!) easy to do and takes a small smidgen of your time. All you have to do is click the link below and proudly proclaim your confidence in me as the next Miss USA with your cursor. You can do it 10 times a day per email address (30 times if you use your personal, professional, and grandma's email addresses *wink*wink*).
I need your help. I need you to help me spread the word & just like closing the achievement gap it takes a movement. Will you join my movement?

Fabulous. I'll stop talking (told you I talk too much) and let you vote & spread the good news now:

Oh, and here are some ways you can help spread the word & show your support and love for lil' ole me:
1.) Feel free to set your homepage and vote 10 times every morning while you chow down on a bowl of Captain Crunch.
2.) Email the link or this blog to those fabulous gem friends & families of yours!
3.) Write the link on your forehead with a bright turquoise Sharpie pen.
4.) Kidnap your neighbors poodle and hold it for a 10 vote ransom.
5.) Social network like non-other (and tag me in your post so I can showcase my gratitude for you!)
6.) Text, remind, harass (kindly) and bug as many peeps as you can, every little vote counts.
7.) Would you be so kind as to post the link on your blog?? ;)
8.) Send me any other clever ideas that I can share!

The voting will continue until June 19th (the TELECAST!) & each person has the minimum potential of voting 380 times. Wow. 

float my boat & simply VOTE!


  1. Voted!! I will vote again each time I remember! Good luck! :D

  2. I just found your blog through my friend Kensey Nall (Miss Northern NM) and casted a few votes for you. God bless!
