A Mother's Day Vlog


new apartment posts: here and here and here
(the post for my Nana will be published tomorrow!)

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there - I hope you're having a wonderful weekend, dear readers! 


  1. That was a sweet story! And I must say, you're a very professional vlogger, you should do it more often. Have a great mother's day with your mom!

  2. I really liked that story. I have never thought about preparing for life changes in that way before and I really want to try it. The unknown freaks me out a LOT so it seems like really thinking about how the changes will pan out and affect my life in every way would be so helpful.

    Have a great weekend with your mom and family! I also think you should vlog more often :)

  3. haha thank you! I actually really like vlogging - I'm such a narcissist :P

  4. my mother is very wise :) have a great weekend, friend!

  5. Love this way of thinking! Hope you are having fun at your weekend house :)

  6. Holy crap.

    I rearranged my room all the time growing up, particularly after I finally got my OWN room the summer after 7th grade. I had a graph paper floorplan with moveable graph paper furniture, too! Mine was to scale. And the furniture was colored. But I also saved the pieces for the next rearrangement, so I didn't do all that work for a single use!
    Paul and I had our furniture in our Idaho house arranged just fine. Then when we were trying to sell it, we did the whole pare down, depersonalize, etc., and ended up rearranging the living room as a result. The new arrangement was so. much. better. We were both quite chagrined that we only lived with that new arrangement for a couple of months, but it did reestablish that moving furniture is NOT a big deal, and not permanent- after all, if you move it and it sucks, it can always go back! Really, it's such a simple, low-effort thing that can truly change how you enjoy your space.

    And it's a GREAT metaphor!
    Happy Mother's Day to your mom! (Is it Mother's, or Mothers'? I never know.)

  7. AND Happy Mother's Day to you, Charlie's Mama!!

  8. haha yay thank you! Charlie is lording it up :)

  9. Sounds like such a fun way to plan out a room! I love how you made your mom's advice work for other aspects in life. I think it's great advice to live by!

  10. What a great life approach! Your Mother's Day vlog was really sweet. It's fun when bloggers do videos, too!

  11. Boakyewa,
    This is a extremely intriguing topic you
    received going on here. Today is your lucky day cos I am living proof that
    it really is absolutely feasible to meet up with your future love on a
    networking or social networking web site. I met my now Wife on
    a social media marketing website (Not FB) but similar. I't was pure coincidence given that I had been not on that website to find enjoy inside the 1st place.
    Basically I located some of the items she wrote about herself quite intriguing and intriguing thus wanted to know much more. I commented on her bio no motive in mind than to understand much more about her hobby (studying individuals) which coincidentally is one particular of the items I prefer to do in my own cost-free time . We did plenty of inboxing' back and forth for over three months and in these three months we by no means spoke
    around the phone. (individually I had been not so keen on talking with
    her around the phone).
    Fast forward a number of months.
    .. It so happened which i was in her city for some company and that i experienced commented on my page on how horrible that city was
    oops! Well she inbox me letting me know how offended she was cos I used to be talking about her city (had no
    concept). She was so bent on proving to me how great her city was that she offered to show me a number of fascinating places inside the city.
    Wow! how bold... Not so keen on this I countered her supply by suggesting a quick
    lunch in any place of her choice (she experienced
    to prove me wrong). We met and to say the minimum the chemistry was instant.
    .. Lunch went by so fast... experienced to leave back to the hotel to get
    a meeting so we exchanged numbers and the rest is history.

    Still happily married with one beautiful daughter (a year old).

    So all I have to say is the fact that really
    like has no strategy... It just hits you when you least
    expect and indeed it can happen on fb as well .

  12. Loved the photo of your mom's surprised face. Good work capturing the moment. :)


    and whoa nelly you are intense. but I expect nothing less :) the same thing happened in the first apartment I lived in with Jon and the boys - we had to rearrange the living room after Christmas to accomodate John's new Wii Connect (or whatever it's called) and the new layout was so much better! of course I'd never admit that to them because we only did it for the video games...

  14. That was a great metaphor, in my opinion! I love this vlog.

  15. Love this. Hope y'all had a great day!

  16. haha yay! yes they are - I think I need her more now than I did when I was little!


I love reading your thoughts and suggestions! Please do leave a comment so we can get to know each other better.
