Vlogging Workshop: Pike Place And More!

august stars

The video I’ve been attempting to upload for the past hour actually hates me. My computer is in the process of dying a slow death and it’s sudden inability to publish an edited video the my desktop is proof. We’re fighting.

And then it occurred to me that I can actually put whatever video I want up here because I made the vlogging prompts with that “free day” prompt every week for JUST this sort of back up plan. Today I’m going to share my August recap and all the fun things we did (Pike Place, Great Wheel, Jumping Off Diving Boards) and if I ever manage to get this other video published I’ll link it below!

This week I’m featuring Miriam because girlfriend knows how to do “back to school” the right way. I’m just missing a little bit of sunshine, a glass of wine, and seriously fabulously hat:

Vlogging Workshop: Stitch Fix Update

I’m taking another free day option this week and sharing a video I put together to follow up on the Stitch Fix raucous I found myself in a few weeks ago. After receiving emails from the CEO of Stitch Fix as well as the vendor Stitch Fix receives some of their clothes from, I felt like I should provide a Stitch Fix update. My final thoughts. Sort of like Jerry Springer only not nearly as classy:

Vlogging Workshop: Word Association Challenge

I went to Blogher this past July and managed to corner some of my favorite video bloggers for alone time in a hotel room. We each came up with video topics and when I got to sit down with Lucrecer we had some fun with the word association challenge. My job was to come up with a word and she was supposed to respond with the first word that came to her mind. I was briefly distracted (and hurt) by her response to the words “Britney Spears” and she was briefly distracted by bacon. We persevered and at the end of the day, this is what we pulled together:

This week I finally got around to sharing my month of July in review. In addition to a birthday party, roller skating and camping, I would say the highlight was the night I spent dancing with Rev Run. And of course I’ve got that clip to share with you…sort of. I use the term “dancing with” loosely here, but you WILL see him AND…he called me sexy. That much I know is true. Sort of:

Vlogging Workshop: My Marriage Proposal

3.) Tell us about your proposal.

My husband couldn’t have planned out my marriage proposal any better. When we went to Hawaii this summer we took our kids to Sweetheart Rock where he proposed and shared the story. Interesting side note, I could not bring myself to walk TO the actual cliff. My kids all wanted to run up there for a full view and I was too panicked about the height that I forbid everyone from moving another inch and then slowly crawled back toward the beach. Motherhood has turned me into a complete freak show:

I’m featuring the video Courtney R. linked up last week because watching her and her husband compete with each other as they tested out games for their daughter’s birthday was adorable and funny!
