Hey everyone!! Just wanted to see how everyone’s Halloween was and to tell you that we kick started our Halloween festivities with a pet parade!! We were the Grand Divas at Doggie Day’s 4th annual Halloween Pet Parade last weekend!! It was amazing! Hundreds of dressed up doggies paraded with us through downtown Boston including Elle’s pup Peanut (who was a Lobster!) It was so cute to see all of the little pups dressed up. We saw dogs dressed in hotdog costumes, princess costumes, Celtics cheerleaders, etc!! At the end of the parade there were costume contests where the owners and pups could win pretty sweet prizes. Randy Price from Channel 7 was there to Emcee! My favorite dressed up doggie (who won one of the prizes) was Michael Phelps! He had on a Speedo, goggles, and gold medals!! It was amazing. We love animals and were glad to be part of such a fun event:)

‘Twas a dark and rainy day in Rhode Island–but we made the best of it when we performed this afternoon at the Matt Light Foundation Celebrity shootout!!
Shooting? YES–but never fear!! No one was harmed! We are referring to the shooting of CLAY PIGEONS…hahaha. Tons of people turned out in spite of the weather to team up and shoot out as well as participate in a fly fishing tournament! Us Jada girls missed out on that part..awwwww…
ANYWAY-the weather finally cleared by showtime and we had a blast!
We met Matt Light (of the New England Patriots) and he’s a sweetheart! (The Light Foundation empowers young people to reach their highest potential.)You can find out more online at: http://www.mattlightfoundation.org/
After our performance, we went out into the crowd and helped to raise over $1100 in raffle ticket sales:) I think it helped that we were very persuasive in our showy stage outfits..hahaha j/k!

Yea!!!!! We have a release date! JADA is proud to announce a single release date for Jan. 20th 2009! We are so excited! We just went to NY for a meeting with the label yesterday and discussed album progress. It went really well. Looks like life is about to get even more ridiculous.
We’ve never had a release like this before, so Im really excited about it. I guess, first we will pick the single-(right after we record 3 more songs in LA next month) and assemble the album based on our favorite songs. Then we shoot off around the country to do a Radio promo tour, to get to know all the radio stations and whatnot. Release the single in Jan. – hopefully jump on someone’s tour as an opening act- then Album release in the 1st quarter of the year. That’s kinda the short version of the run down. The release date is 5 days before my b-day- so that’s fun.

We are in Miami right now (last minute weekend trip!) and we’re doing some HOT new songs for the album with Danja and writer Jim Beam! We thought we were done recording BUT when you are offered MORE hot songs from these guys–you can’t refuse them! We spent a total of 28 minutes in the sun this morning before having to get sort of pretty for ‘work’. After hitting the big ‘SB’–(Starbucks) to prep for the long day – we rolled into the Hit Factory in our luxury Kia Sedona.. lol… and began to crank out 1 of 3 songs in 2 DAYS (yes that is crazy)! We love working here at the HF – everyone is really cool and they always have a freshly stocked fruit basket in the studio – which we attack and demolish!
Plain White T’s, Lloyd, Jada, Jordan Pruitt, and Brooke Hogan are part of the upcoming Simon dTour Live mall tour, kicking off Friday at Ocean County Mall in Toms River, New Jersey. All events begin at 3:00 p.m. Check out the complete schedule at Simon.com.
