Vloggy Vlog Vlog - Link up

Hello all - I am going to be short and sweet today. I have a work retreat so I have to get out of here ASAP.

First thing, if you don't follow me on instagram or twitter and you want to - hit me up over there------>
I am going to be sending out tons of tweets and pics from my FIRST HALF MARATHON on Sunday. So if you are interested - feel free. I am really going to try and stay on top of it during the race too - we will see how far I can get with tweeting and running. HA:)  I post a ton of pics of the kids and E too - I know the "mom" in me.

Also - send me some prayers, or if you don't pray some good vibes for my run Sunday - I will recap it all for you next week.

Now the moment we have all been waiting for... My nerdy, geeky, terrible lighting vlog.. Thank you Holly and Emily for hosting this - MWAH.

**Update I DO know what TRL is now - duh.. AND yes I swear I am not THAT dense - cut me some slack it was 5:30 a.m. - so my favorite video on TRL, back in the day was Blind Melon's - "No Rain" or Soundgarden's "Spoonman". Yes I was a grunge chick and LOVED every.minute.of.it.

  5. Love your vlog! How in the world do you have all of your crap together at 5 in the morning?!?

    I will say a prayer or ten for your race on Sunday, have fun!

    I have never heard of the lion fast food place, I am going to have to google it. I too didn't watch TRL, my family didnt have cable, so you're not alone.

    Have fun at your retreat and have a great weekend!

  8. Good Luck on Sunday!! You will rock it. I am running my 4th marathon tomorrow and am a bit freaked out. It took me a good 5 min to figure out what TRL meant. I was more of a country girl in high school so didn't watch much MTV. Give me some George Strait or Tim McGraw anyday! Good Luck again and can't wait to hear how it goes!

  10. That was great! You're the only blog friend so far who are EXACTLY how I envisioned you would be...love it! And I am really really glad I'm not the only one who was not interested in TRL (after reading the question I thought wow, did I miss something with this trl thing?!) I'm a clean freak, and my husband says I'm obsessive about things being neat & tidy, but I can't help it! Anyways....GOOD LUCK ON SUNDAY!!

    1. Yep you sound just like me - I really think I have some cleaning "disease" and I don't even care:) Thanks again.

  11. Ahhh!!! I love I love I love!!! You are just as amazingly awesome as I thought you'd be! Eck to Ramen Noodles, tho, I've never liked them, never will. My husband on the other hand...he loves the darn things. Again, eck! :) Wishing you much luck, fast feet and strength for Sunday! I will be thinking of you that day. (Thought of you last night when your boy got injured in the game. Temper, temper!)

  13. I don't know what I love more... The fact that you just randomly said how much you love to clean {me too!!} or that your favorite gift was a vaccuum. HAHA

    Good luck Sunday, blondie!
