  2. Oh you!
    First of all, get that cat inside! I was worried sick throughout the vlog.

    Second, it was great to hear you had a great time writing and to hear your honest voice come out through your vlog since it always comes out in your writing as well.

    AND thank you for mentioning my blog. Today would be a great day for new people to come by since I berate some readers, accuse some of lurid thoughts and command that they comb my hair as well.

    Now I must go get some lipstick on, sweet one.

    Keep rising out of that funk. You know Kerry would want his Mama to shine. (And she does!)

  3. Ha! You are so funny! Glad you are feeling better. Your mom is a woman after my own heart, many days I leave this house with nothing but lipstick and sunglasses...and...err...clothes of course!

  5. Wow you are so brave, You would never see me in my p.j.s on my blog. :( thats cause you are so cute in you P.J.s.
    I too have been unfaithful to most men I've dated...one reason I think I struggle with weight is that once I get thin and boy start looking, I get bad thoughts. Fat and faithful is what I always say.
    Cool vlog! Great idea. I've started reading "first taste of summer" like 12 time but my kids are always jumping on me....I'll do tho.
    I love bossy betty too :)
    Big crazy freaky love.

  6. Great vlog and it's cool to "meet" you via the video. I really like the First Taste of Summer and I can wait to read more. It really makes you think back to those early romances and giggle. I love the realness in all of your posts.

  8. Totally Fun vlog!!! :D Honestly, I appreciate the fashion advice handed down from your mother--sunglasses and lipstick! I'm mostly of no nonsense German ancestry and somehow I had to learn make up and fashion from friends, NOT my mother or grandmother! Fortunately, my daughter is part Filipina with an innate sense of what looks chic. I'm inspired. Gonna go buy some shades and a ready-for-summer shade of lipstick.

  9. lipstick has to smell good in order for me to wear it.

    i'm very critical (insecure) of my appearance so posting this vlog - up close and first thing in the morning - was challenging for me.

    Michelle - interesting comment about weight. now THAT was honest!

    time to write....THANK YOU FOR COMMENTING :)))) I needed, really NEEDED to hear it was well received.

    beautiful day.....beautiful day :)

  18. Love the video!!! I can almost hear your mom's voice saying everybody looks better in lipstick and sunglasses!! I remember your mom teaching us how to fold a fitted bed sheet,waaaay back in the day!!! Sam Liu said it well, you were very calm in your video, that was wonderful.

    xoxo

  29. I loved your vlog this morning. I thought the sunglasses and lipstick in bed were charming, perhaps I will try that someday.
    I very much enjoyed your First Taste of Summer post. Young romance is so intense.

  34. just found this one............a "vlog" i believe its what this is called..and love the lpstick and sunglassed........do it ALL the time and i think you should vlog after each new posting ...or before a new posting....
    before....give us a quick preview....then leave us hanging waiting with bated breath to see the new post....
    after....give you an opportunity to do as you did in this vlog ....to reflect I know your getting ready for BM and are busy.....but just wanted you to know im ok each day is a new challenge but you keep me going with your posts my dear friend i luv you....respect you..and wish you nothing but the best...luv lite and everything else you so deserve...miss u shan
