About to have a heart attack, Monday Mingle Style.


Okay, I vlogged. I really, truly despise the whole video thing. I'm so much more comfortable typing, but, whatever. 

A few things you should note:

1. I don't typically wear a neon orange hoodie-but the husband brought it home (he got it for free) from a trade show he was at for work last week, and yea, after it came out of the laundry? It ended up on my back. 
2. I say "um" a lot.
3. Did I mention how uncomfortable this makes me? It's like me unveiling the whole me. TA DA WORLD, here I am. Oh man. Scary.
4. I mention that my writing is lame. I don't really mean that. Just that I feel lame in general. Oy ve. This is spiraling out of control.
5. The BEST parts of the video are that Emeline & Mac both make an appearance. There's always a silver lining, right?

Needless to say, here goes wasting five minutes of your life. You can't get those five minutes back, so choose wisely.

[Please note: I totally mention Laura in here and say I was 'pressured' to do this by her. I wasn't really pressured, just kind of a, 'aww come on, do it!' type thing. It was all nice, promise.]

happy monday!

  2. Vlogging gets easier the more you do it - in my first one I kept looking at my face instead of the camera! :)

    Emeline's face just lights up when she smiles - so beautiful!

  10. This is hilarious. I don't think you are lame at all for doing this, but I cracked up everytime you would trail off at the end of sentences when you weren't quite sure what else to say about that question. Your facial expression was priceless. Love it! Emeline is SO stinking cute, but I say that all the time.

    Is it weird when I say that when I now read your blog, I can put your voice to it?!?!

    Very brave and awesome....I would sooo never do that! I think I have a man voice!!!! 0_0 Haha!

  14. LOL. You cracked me off when you'd trail off at the end too! You're so cute! And Emeline's smile and little wave??? Precious.
    You did great! It's fun to see bloggers in person. Just to get a better feel for who they are.

    ps. love your kitchen! :) Ever since I saw your sister's post on that magnetic chalkboard, I've been meaning to go get one. So thanks for reminding me about it. haha.

  15. Such a cute/great post! I love Emeline and Mac together! AWww. More Vlogs, Yay :) Yorkies are my favorite breeds too: I have two--Dora and Flora; whom we all call collectively DoFlo.

    I love it!

  16. My Emmy loved watching your Eme, and was "talking" to her. So cute!! My parents have a yorkie named Joey and they really are wonderful breeds. Good for you for having the you-know-what to vlog... maybe I'll try it one day ;)

  18. I watched it AGAIN because I loved it that much. And you, of course. And Eme. And Mac. Aww.. group hug! :)

    I promise this week I will vlog.

    Er.. wait.. my fingers were crossed..

  19. You talk so much faster on the phone. Haha! You did good. I love seeing you...so maybe you'll do it more often. Especially since I'm THINKING about maybe possibly doing it myself. Maybe.

  20. You're so cute :) You say you're not comfortable with vlogs, but you did fine. I always just pretend I'm talking to a favorite friend :)

  21. I love vlogs! It's always so much fun to "hear" a blogger. {Is that weird? Ha!} And I totally thought it was Eme-LYNN, like on Army Wives? She's just the cutest thing, by the way. Such a smiley happy baby!!

  22. You're too cute. Seriously :) It's fun to put a face & voice to the blog. Not sure I could ever vlog. Props to you. Don't feel lame. Feel courageous :)

  23. I won't do it. I just won't. I'm way too lame and chicken. Also, I love how your voice totally changes between talking to the camera and talking to Eme. Hello, Mom voice! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  24. So I was just going to start this comment with and um...because I say um a lot too, ha ha! I was going to say,"Um...way cute!" Oh and the baby totally needs more air time on the next vlog...super cute!

    On a side note, I was wondering if you were going to do an update soon about your teaching job next year. Are you going back or staying home? I'm a teacher too and I'm thinking about taking a whole year off the next time around...if we can financially. So I'm just curious and sorry if I'm too nosy.

  25. I never knew how to pronounce your husbands name. :) I like it. Very unique - I love unique.

  26. Finally meeting all of my blog friends! Love the video. Emeline is too sweet. Can you Vlog her being upset sometime? I can't picture how such a content little lady would look when upset. :)

  27. Your daughter is SO adorable! And... you have a GREAT Monday Mingle! Lots of personality! Your doggie is SO cute too! Hope to see you mingle again soon!

  28. Love it! So cute and you aren't the only one who says "um" alot :)

    I definitely think you did a great job-so natural and not rehearsed.

    Great job! Oh, and loved Emeline's cameo :)

  29. Too cute! I was watching your vlog and my daughter crawled up in my lap to watch you too! So, you couldn't of been too boring! I loved Emeline's smiles! She is so cute!

    Thanks for sharing!

  30. It was great to hear your voice and get to "know" you this way. And to see your doggie and sweet baby girl.

    I haven't jumped into the vlogging thing yet either but I think I would like to try. We'll see...

    ReplyDelete
  31. You're adorable!

    I love how your vlog is very natural and made it feel like I was sitting at your table with you.

    I've never heard of Laura's blog or Monday mingle so I'll have to try it out. I've vlogged a couple times but it has been a long time!

    Emeline is cute! I can't believe she didn't fuss through the entire video, what a good girl.

  32. Glad you gave vlogging a chance. Who knows maybe you'll like it! Ooh peer pressure LOL
    Oh Emeline is sweeet! :)
    Yorkies are cute :) Lassie was a Collie, right?
    Hope you have a great week!

  33. Aww so cute! :) I always love to put a voice to the face behind a blog. And Emeline's appearance was precious. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think you did great! Much much better than I would have done for sure! You do make me want to try it, which proves it's not lame! Emeline is a cutie! Love her waving and that you wave like she does. I do that too :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Katie, I haven't seen you this shy for a long time. :) We definately raised shelties. You were right! Love Emeline smiling at the computer as if someone was talking to her, so cute.
    Love, Mom

  36. You are just the cutest! Love the vlog! Emeline was just too precious when she waved! :) And can I just say that you have awesome hair? For real. You should totally keep doing these. This might encourage me to try it out, too!

  37. We'll look back on our first vlogs when we are vlogging pros and giggle.

    You, my friend, are ridiculously cute. I know. I say that twelve times a week. But I mean it.

    Are you as excited for next week as I am? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. You're adorable! I LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing people in vlogs... it just makes it that much more personal. You did seem a little shy but it is so awkward to make a vlog and then post it for the world to see. I am super shy in mine too.

    I really want to do another one soon :)
