Vlogging Workshop: Foot Massage Gone Wrong

This week I’m sharing about my recent experience with a foot massage gone wrong. I should know better than to listen to my husband, but he convinced me to go to this place that supposedly was giving hour long foot massages for 20 bucks. Let’s just say I go more than I bargained for:

Vlogging Workshop: My Family Bullied Me

ptricky

1. Tell us about a favorite camping memory.

This is not so much a memory about camping as it is a memory being shared WHILE camping. Kind of the same, but different. Just like store brand Oreos. Not that I eat Oreos anymore. When you’re old Oreos make you fat. Other things that make you fat include: anything that is not lettuce. This is what I’m learning as I age. But I digress! Today I’m exposing a secret that has been hidden long enough. My family bullied me. It’s true…watch:

Vlogging Workshop: Better Have My Money

Ever wonder how a song was written? With so many great hits out there, the process of songwriting is fascinating! This is exactly how I imagine Rhianna’s “Better Have My Money” was written. I apologize in advance for any embarrassed feelings you might encounter while watching the video. I feel them too. But I can’t stop.:

Vlogging Workshop: National Cherry Tart Day!

National Cherry Tart Day

2. June 17th is National Cherry Tart Day. Incorporate it into your video!

It’s National Cherry Tart day and I can’t let an opportunity to make Cherry Tarts pass me by. I’ve actually never made these before and am not a huge fan of cherry desserts at all, but why let that stop me from making an entire batch of desserts? And actually, during my search for a cherry tart recipe I found two other cherry desserts that were too pretty NOT to try. So, today I crammed together three cherry desserts in one video. Which is your favorite?:

I really enjoyed watching Amanda from Dude Mom sock dancing in the hallway. Sometimes it’s the little things in life that bring us the biggest smiles. I feel like sock dancing could be the next YouTube Challenge to go viral. We should all make it happen.
