Vloggin' Again

I'm linking up again with Adelines Dad who hosts Vloggin Vednesdays. If you haven't done so already you should link up sometime. It's a neat challenge to get in front of the camera and it's fun to share a little more about yourself with your blogging friends. Also, awkward and a little nerve wracking but, fun nonetheless! lol.

and oh my goodness what a BAD freeze frame of my face!!! AHHHH hahaha






Vloggin' Vednesdays

And in other news...
Sometimes I just need to post a bunch of random, unedited, but, I still want to share them kinda pictures, yah know. So forgive me for these "throw up" posts as I endearingly refer to them as...in other words, a big hurl of randomness;0. lol I know our family doesn't mind the random updates but, for all of you bloggers who are subjected to it I apologize. lol

Daisy was loving my markers and pens but, it only took her like, 3 seconds to open them and write on her new shirt...end of that activity...lol

My first attempt at swirl frosting the tops of my cupcakes. They looked like a dog had dood on them...I hope my next attempt is more swirly and less dumpy;0. Wish me luck. I only have 3 days to figure this out! haha
daddy put daisy under the basket and it was pretty cute
this is what children do to our homes...ruin our nice blinds;0.
and take everything off of our shelves...



It's nice that I can just open Daisy's closet and let her play with whatever her little heart fancies. It can entertain her for quite a while some days. Love those chunky legs! Though it might be hard to tell, they are far less chunky than they used to be. Kinda makes me sad. I miss that uber chunky baby chunk! lol.


Tearing our mail into pieces is another favorite pass time for Daisy. Only bummer is that when she is teething like she is ALL THE TIME, she wants me to be right next to her 24/7. I moved away to take this picture and immediately she stopped what she was doing and started crawling to me while crying. Silly baby girl.
We stopped by an awesome nursery about 20 minutes from our house. Everything is SO cheap there!! It was a beautiful day so I snapped a quick pic of Daisy before we hopped back in the car.
Dark pictures but, wanted to show the start of our side yard progress. We bought 6 4 foot tall shrubs and planted them down the side of our house. I hate looking out a window and seeing nothing..or just seeing a neighbors house. I think my soul kinda screams for nature so I had to plant something out in front of our dining room and living room windows. It already has made a difference in my spirit. I was telling a friend just today that when I look out my windows if what I see isn't pleasing to the eye or calming, I tend to feel restless. I love looking out windows and drinking in nature through my eyes. SO calming, refreshing and relaxing! So, that is what we are working on now. We've got more work to do but, we are getting there.
I had the pleasure of getting together with Laura Libert From L to the Third and Ashley Sisk from Ramblings and Photos. Ashley and I really should head up the Raleigh area blogger Connection committee!! What do you think Ashley;0? We had a great time eating dinner, playing with Laura's son and meeting her brother. Wish you lived closer Laura! Horrible point and shoot shot and nice red eye. The one thing that stinks about becoming a photographer is it gets harder and harder to settle for shots like this (unedited, point and shoot style, harsh flash, cheesy) but, alas I don't want to become a picture snob so I'll keep sharing them regardless!

  2. Oh - I'm a sucker for most things they put at the checkout counter - that's for those impulse buyers - like me! ;-)

  3. I loved your vlog. We have the coke addiction in common. When my husband and I first got married, I had a rule that we couldn't have coke in the house (cause i'd drink it all). And I did really good for a couple of years. After the birth of my son, though, not so much. I always have coke in the house now. I love it so much. I really should try to kick that habit though, cause you're right - it's no good for my teeth!

  5. Love the vlog! The photos are fab...those cupcakes look delish! And that's usually what my house looks like at the end of the day if I don't follow behind my two year old ALL day and pick up his stuff. :)

  6. Yeah - we have a lot of similarities but I'm a diet coke gal. Actually, I spent an hour of my life today searching for Diet Mello Yello today. I grew up on Mello Yello and always thought it'd be cool to get a diet version. Apparently they do make it, but it's so hard to find.

    But yeah, me and you with the Raleigh Connection - absolutely. I'm meeting up with a girl on Tuesday for lunch that hasn't been a part of our blogging community but maybe I can pull her in.

  12. Loved your vlog! I do the exact same thing when I'm in the grocery store--I just love looking at the glossy, colorful photos of gorgeous and put-together homes (not to mention hopelessly neat and organized)! The hubby bought me a subscription to Martha Stewart Living two years ago and I'm always so excited when it comes in the mail! (P.S. Sammy and I look like we're possessed in that photo, ha!)

  15. awesome Vlog, I love your eyelashes, they are beautiful!, Daisy is so cute! and I love the chunky baby legs too :) but they are here and gone so fast :( I am a dedicated pepsi drinker, although I do crave it once a year when I have mcdonalds for breakfast, it goes well with an egg mcmuffin. :)
