Bloops and Stuff

For the past 24 hours my mind has been telling me that I really really want to blog. But then my mind is all like "you have nothing worthy of a blog post, pipe down." And so I keep opening and closing this page of a big blank space, confusing myself on how the hell the rest of this battle is gonna go. I'm gonna feed the need and here I am, I don't really have much to say... well, I do but I can't yet. Yes, I just did that, I'M ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE. I guess that's why I'm so stumped when I come here, I feel on the edge of my seat about so many things, but for the privacy of others I'm not able to share anything yet. And I feel like it's really the only thing going on right now besides making YouTube videos and ya know, the same old day job life thing. Maybe this will just be one of those posts where I just kinda let it go where ever it goes. 

Oh here's a topic, wedding stuff. Just kidding, I got engaged two months ago and have yet to even bother to figure out what "Step One" is in this whole process. I know I mentioned it a bit in my engagement post, but since we're getting married back home in Boston, just the thought of beginning to plan a wedding from long distance makes me just wanna stay engaged forever. Like really, I'm all set. I also never ever wanted to get married back home but as much as I hate to admit it, it makes the most sense. Ok, I can already feel this part of the post taking a turn into stressville zip code kelly. Onto the next...

Let's take a break and have a laugh at my expense. So far since starting this YouTube thing, my way of going about it is to film on a Saturday if Robert is working. It's just easier with an empty home and zero noise or distractions. But he didn't work this past weekend (a first in awhile) so I chose to actually spend time with him instead. But what I did do was take some time during football watching to put together a "bloopers/extras" video. Although I didn't have anything new filmed, I didn't want to skip posting for the week ... that's a slippery slope and you see I wear that well if you've been visiting this blog for awhile. Much like skipping a workout day... it's all down hill for me. So to avoid that disaster I would have easily crawled into, I chose to put this together for you. It's hard to believe that after only 5 videos, I would even have a video like this but let me tell you... filming ain't easy! I stumble over my words like crazy, I get into singing to make being in front of a camera a little more comfy, seriously a private concert really gives you a confidence boost! And since I'm still so brand new at all this, I had quite a good collection of clips to make this. So yea, take a break, have a laugh, and maybe we'll get back to wedding stuff down below. 




Eh, maybe we won't get back to wedding stuff. That's not a fun subject when the bride isn't even into it yet. So moving on... what are your plans for the upcoming holidays? Do you travel for Thanksgiving? Will you be flying anywhere for Christmas? Are you having a New Years bash? If you've already posted about this, leave your links below so I can go live vicariously through you! We're not sure what we want to do for Thanksgiving yet. Last year we went to a restaurant and we are thinking of doing that again, so stress free! But a friend is going to be alone, his fiance flew home to her family and he wasn't able to, so we may host something mini or drag him out with us. Originally, we wanted to go home for Christmas, we were actually really excited that we'd be able to afford to do so. Until we went to book everything and realized that sorry not sorry, but it's just not worth it! I ranted about the prices once before so let's not repeat. I think we have plans for New Years, we were invited but didn't exactly give an answer yet. So we'll see.

Well look at that, an entire blog post but we're still back at the beginning with "nothing to write about". I basically danced around weddings and holidays because like my mind tried to tell me, I have nothing worthy to share.  So with all this fluffer, I at least hope my awkwardness in that video put a little light in your day.

Until next time...
xo


Just kidding, I have more to say. Well, ask. I really want to get some feedback on what kinds of videos people like to watch. I have a list of about 40 videos that I'd like to do (some are the popular and typical ones that most people do) but I'd like to know what YOU want to see. Do you like the typical and popular ones? Or do you want to challenge me and push me out of my comfort zone? Let me know :)

And one more thing, it's Song Of The Week Wednesday over on Helene's blog and I totally missed this last week and refuse to miss it again because MUSIC. And although I don't have a song chosen and certainly don't have a song to tie into this nonsense post... I'm gonna just choose the first one that pops up in my Spotify! (hold please...) Oooh! This slightly ties into the wedding part because this could totally be played at a wedding. But first let me say that I am light years behind on the Ed Sheeran wagon. I took the bait last week for the first time and wow! Ok ok this weeks song is "Thinking Out Loud".

I love this live sessions version.





K bye for real!

  1. You are so cute!! I loved your video!

    I was having major writer's block a few hours ago and then I just started typing and voila! I hope it continues to be like that, but I totally know what you're talking about.

    DeNiro is so cute!! Glad that you're enjoying doing videos. I don't know any tips on what you could do for a video, but just be yourself. You are already doing your thing, so I think you're doing a great job :)

    Sorry you couldn't go back home for the holidays. Maybe next time!

  2. So I was in the SAME BOAT when we got engaged. As SOON as we got engaged, my grandmother passed and I developed a gnarly case of anxiety. It took me a few months to get back to feeling normal and to actually get excited about planning a wedding. No worries - you will be excited and not stressed too!

  11. thanks girl! writers block sucks, especially when you have to urge to write!
    doing videos is a lot of fun but there is a super stressful side to it as well. honestly though, my favorite part of it is editing. it takes hours and hours and hours and for me I'm finding it to be therapeutic, it relaxes me and gives me something to concentrate on and care about.
