Sunday Morning: A Vlog

Good morning, dear readers!  Whitney tagged me in a vlog a few weeks ago, and I've only just now had the chance to record something for you.  (Sorry it's long!  I refused to do a second take because then the whole thing would have just sounded so... affected, in the 19th century sense of the word.)  I'm supposed to tag a few more bloggers so carry on the torch, so:

Sara, Sara in Le Petit Village
Emily, Sparrow in the Treetop
Eileen, Leaner by the Lake 
Alicia, Jaybird: Home in Motion
Julie, Bound
Stacey, Likes To Smile

Of course, anyone is welcome to join in!  Please do, if you'd like.  I'm not actually going to set any questions for you - I just want a conversation!  Well, I guess it would be rather a one-sided conversation, but that's okay.  Pretend we're having coffee together and you're catching us up on what's going on with you.  You can use Lauren's Sunday Currently suggestions, if you want some guidelines and/or need some inspiration!  Can't wait to hear your voices.

My Target sleep shirt is no longer available, but here's a similar PJ set from the same brand.  (I love Gilligan & O'Malley.  Their underthings and nightwear are so comfortable!)

  1. I'm super pumped to be tagged! I've been toying with the idea of using video for awhile, so now I have even more incentive. It may take me awhile to make a video, but I'm excited to try it!

  2. The perfect way for me to get over my vlog shyness! Merci mon amie! (I think) x

  3. Your Princess Bride bit killed me! MAWIAGE! I love that movie :)

  4. One more thing.... I loved Anne of Green Gables so much that I convinced my friend's family to go to Prince Edward Island for their summer holiday and then I invited myself along!

  5. Love your pjs!!! You're so brave to do this on a Sunday morning!!! I would look like a hot mess haha.

  6. Hi Betsy! I don't usually comment, but I love it when bloggers do vlogs. It always seems like such an "honest" post and a great way to get to know the person behind the blog better :)

    Just from reading your blog, I've always imagined that you're more of a health nut (probably because I've never run a marathon and don't enjoy running in general, which is weird since I'd like to participate in the color run one day) than a couch potato. Just goes to prove your first point, I guess. You really can't tell a person from reading their blog alone.

    Hope you're doing well!

  7. oh YAY! I just love vlogs - is that narcissistic? haha

  8. WELL DONE MY FRIEND. I'm dying to go to PEI for proper tour!

  9. haha to be fair I'd already been up and out with Charlie, so I was a little awake :P

  10. YES THE DISGUISE IS WORKING! haha - thank you :)

  11. I LOVE Rilla of Ingleside!!! I have never heard of anyone else who had read all 7 books before. I have probably read the series 4 or 6 times. Rilla of Ingleside is my favorite. Anne's House of Dreams is a close second.

  12. Oh gosh. Wait til you hear my valley girl voice. :-P


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