Girl Behind The Blog (A Vlog)

Oh ladies and gents, you are in for a real treat today. 
Treat actually means disaster.
Treat, disaster, whatever...it is all fitting for Halloween. 
Today marks the day for the grand ole Girl Behind The Blog link-up party Ashley and I are hosting.
Here are the deets just so you are aware of what I am about to talk about. 
The Girl Behind The Blog- Show and Tell
Time limit: Vlogs should be 2-3 minutes long
Introduce yourself and your blog
Share with the rest of us: What are 3 items you couldn't get through the day without?

Except because I am a rebel I went with 5 things I couldn't make it through the day without. 
Before we begin I should point out a few things.
I swallow hard on occasion. 
I know it's weird. I don't get it either. 
Secondly, it's apparently time to switch over to my winter foundation.
The orange look isn't exactly appealing come November.
And third...well, my tripod decided it was over Vlogging about halfway through.
Just tune in and see what I mean.....

...And I am still laughing about that dang tripod.

Anyhow, it is time for YOU to link up. Yes I said you. All you have to do is make sure you are following both Ashley and I, record your Vlog, link up below, and smack this fancy little button on your blog.
Easy as pie. Or chips. We don't care for pie remember?

Can't wait to watch all of y'alls videos.

Gosh I Love Vacations.

I am coming to you today with a hat on.
Drinking wine.
At 1:56 pm on a Monday.
It's my first official day of this whole "staycation" thing and can I just say I am a huge fan?
One thing I have noticed however is that these days go so freaking fast when you aren't at work.
You'd think it could like slow down or something...but no, it doesn't.
It also doesn't help that my list of things to do is growing instead of shrinking.
Typically not a bad thing, I know.
You should be laughing if you understood that joke.
You should also be saying "You just haaaad to cross the line didn't you" if you are my husband.
Yes husband I did.
Because that's what I do. I see a line and I jump right over it. Staying inside the lines is boring.
Anyhow, in attempt to scratch off "write Tuesday's blog post" from the list, here we go.
Writing Tuesday's blog post.
A thrilling task if I don't say so myself.
Being that I haven't discussed our weekend yet thanks to that humongous giveaway going on right now, let's start there.
Friday night.
I used my dog for self portraits.
Not pictured is how we actually went out with friends to a brewery//restaurant.
There was lots of political talk (I am such a pro at politcal talk....not), ham and bean soup consumption (by yours truly), and hysterical laughter at the news video of my husband modeling a coat made for homeless people (now would've been the PERFECT opportunity to sneak in a link to the video of this, however my husband warned me in size 72 font that I better not. Size 72 font means serious business people.)
Saturday consisted of working our tails off at the lake cottage.
This weekends agenda was laying the floors.
My husband took care of that biznass.
He is a good little layer.
While he layed the floors, I was busy.....well I was busy taking pictures of lazy dogs and street signs.
Oh, I was also productive and took a picture of paint cans.
To make it appear that I would've painted or something. 

Not pictured Saturday was the gathering we attended at our friends house to watch Notre Dame move up to the number three spot in the country. Holllllleeeeeer. Eight and zero. I didn't even know such a thing was possible. I do have some sweet videos of our friends dancing, however I would probably not have a head for the remainder of my vacation if I posted those on here. Soooooo....

Sunday was a replica of Saturday.
Minus the whole friends dancing riduclous thing.

So that's that.
My weekend in a nutshell.

I am off to go deliver meals to my grandparents, record a vlog, go to bible study, answer emails, clean the house, catch up on all of the Giuliana and Bill episodes I've missed, and drink wine.
Lots and lots of wine.

Remember to record your vlogs for Wednesday party people.
It's going to be fun.
Promise you that.

Peace out chicken heads (said in the most lovingly chicken head way possible...)




Twenty Eight.

Is it just me or is this group giveaway day getting better and better?
I mean holy wow.
It still kinda blows my mind that one lone soul will win ALL twenty-eight items.
That's like winning a prize every day for a whole month. 
Such a thing should be illegal...but because it's not (and even if it was I would still fully support it...) you should probably get entering. This month it's even coming to you Rafflecopter style.
Not nearly as cool as Gangnam Style but whatevs.
Maybe I can work on that for next month.

Also before you begin entering your hearts away...if you want the details on how to get in on this giveaway for November, email me at livinginyellow@gmail.com
I'll get you hooked up. 

And the fun starts now.

ps. Special thanks to my brand new Virtual Assistant Nicole for putting this grand ole post together.
You my friend are amazing. And because of you, I got to tear out vanities, paint walls, and almost pull my hair out in the process. So on second thought....just kidding. Thank you.
