Vlogging Workshop: Manny Was Adopted

fostering a greyhound

Last month I mentioned we were fostering a rescue Greyhound named Manny and this month I’m sorry to announce my love affair with that dog has come to an end. He found his forever home. Manny was adopted. It’s a good thing. His new Mom sent me pictures a video to ensure I knew how great he’s doing in his new environment. And maybe to also ensure I don’t ask Jill to call them up and beg for him back. It worked. He’s loving his new home and we’re getting ready for round two:

Vlogging Workshop: St. Patrick’s Day Treats

3. A St. Patrick’s Day inspired recipe.

I’ve been sharing some adorable St. Patrick’s Day treats concocted by Kainoa and one of his little friends on YouTube. They crack me up together. Last week they prepared a Shamrock Punch and Lucky Leprechaun Parfaits. This week they got to do St. Patrick’s Day Rice Krispy Treats. They’re basic Rice Krispy Treats with the addition of some optional green food coloring and Lucky Charm Marshmallows:

Vlogging Workshop: #DearMe

In honor of International Women’s Day YouTube created a #DearMe campaign asking women to post videos to younger versions of themselves as a way to offer encouragement. Since obviously it’s too late for us to take our own advice, at least thousands of young girls will be inspired to keep their chins up. Everything is going to be okay.

And I loved Elle Vee’s vlog entry last week. She shared how she keeps her life organized and somehow convinced me I need one of these Kiki K. planners simply by flipping through it. I wonder if that organizer would get my kids to school on time for me.
