The girl behind the blog ((a little more))

i am taking a few deep breaths as i upload this...ok just going to bite the bullet...here i am in all my weird facial expressions and crazy pauses...


i learned two things about myself through doing this video/link up....

1. i say "ummm" a lot. you would never guess in took any sort of public speaking class in college but i did. and somehow i passed.

2. i am a perfectionist. but also a procrastinator. i knew i wanted to do this link up but i was too nervous to film the actual video. ((i don't like the sound of my own voice.)) i have yet to master the skill of editing so i decided to do the whole thing with no stopping...which took for-ev-er! i am so nit picky about myself. i seriously need to give myself a break.

also,the chirping sound in the background is indeed our smoke detector telling us it needs new batteries.

thank you for watching my video despite my awkwardness...just really taking a leap outside my comfort zone.


happy wednesday!

linking up with 5ohwifey & our crazy beautiful little story.

I too cheered in high school. It was seriously the best ever. I loved everything about it, honestly! Hahah biting popsicles is by far the weirdest pet peeve I've ever heard! PS you are seriously gorgeous. Like, stunning. Glad you linked up!

You are too cute! I'm glad you linked up!

Target, Forever 21, H&M - yup. that's my style, too!

I hate to tell you I'm one of those people who bites into Popsicles. I have tried to lick them. I really have. But then I just get impatient, take a bite, and eat the rest of the thing before it makes a puddly mess.

And #4...I was a cheerleader too :) And loved it. And miss it. You, me, and Ashley from 5ohWifey need to get together and do some cheering! Ha. I really enjoyed getting to know you better!
