Vlog Time!

You heard me!  It's time for another vlog!  
I'm linking up with Ashley and Andi for The Girl Behind The Blog #2: What I'm Learning!

I would love for all of you to link-up as well so I can put a voice to your names.  
Pretty please?


After viewing this, I have a few comments to add:

- I know the lighting is terrible.  I planned to film this before sunset, but my glorious commute home took 90 minutes yesterday, and I worked with what I had.  (I will not miss the commute or the I-45 after we move!)

- I noticed in this vlog (and in my last one) that my voice gets higher when I speak softly.  I don't know why.  I'm embarrassed to record vlogs when Mr. TBS is home, so I made him turn on the TV, and I closed the doors.  ;-)

- Go meet Ashley.  She's an awesome, independent, and strong-willed mama, and I'm all about her!

- It's hard to hear what I said at the end: "I hope you enjoyed seein' my smiley face."  Hence, the silly gesture!

Happy week to you lovely people!  
Please send Mr. TBS and I good vibes for our move.

UPDATE: I got the most amazing shout-out in Ashley's vlog (at 3:20, to be exact!), and it MADE MY DAY!  I love my blogging community.

This makes me so excited to Skype with you. I promise I won't be too nervous anymore :)

Glad I'm not the only one to do this in bad lighting. And I waited 20 minutes to record until the husband left for the gym.

Dude, I seriously love you. Cannot wait to be friends in real life!

Annnnnnd, will you practice "At Last" on skype with me? No pressure....

Meg Cady said...

Um yeah MOVING SUCKS. I think I will only "like" it when I finally get to move to H-townnnn.

Um. you sing… you rock.

Kristen said...

That was so cute! Good luck this weekend, hope the new place is fantastic!

Courtney Baxtron said...

You are so sweet! I love your smiling face. I hate moving also…we moved 4 times in the last few years. Now that we are somewhat settled (for now) I am finally decorating and trying to build community. Hope you have a pain-free move! XO Courtney

Julie Marie said...

you are so cute and smiley. =) its good when you can be content without nearby friendships. especially when you have to be.... sometimes you can live in a town full of people you know and love and still feel alone and have to keep yourself busy =) haha..but its good to know where your strengths are ! nice to meet you ;) xojulie

Kate said...

This video is so cute! Maybe your next vlog should be you performing that number for us? I'm sure you are going to be awesome! That's so cool that you are performing in a wedding!

5ohWifey said...

You are so beautiful! I wish you would've sung at the end!! haha you're funny, i hate moving (obiv), and I heart you

Franchesca said...

Oh I loved watching!!!! I'm with Ashley, you shoulda sung at the end ;) Excited for you, what a beautiful opportunity to share your talent!

Hoping the move goes smoothly this weekend!

Jessica @ Lovely Little Things said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again -
I LOVE YOUR SMILE!
It's seriously contagious - I smiled the whole time I watched this! :) see there it is!

I died when you said "I'm a really good cleaner" hahaha
I say that ALL the time, because I do not cook (thankfully Adam does though ;)) I like the teamwork mentality...my future for sure!

Next vlog = you singing! :) YES!

Hope you're being productive today and finishing up all that you need to get done for the move!

BIG LOVE to you my sweet, sweet friend :)

Kerrie said...

Hey Lindsay!! I loved your blog! I, too, feel embarrassed at the idea of vlogging in front of the hubby! He works night shift this week so I recorded it while he slept but kept worrying he'd wake up and hear me talking to myself haha. And, I'm reallly hoping we can convince you to record "At Last" and post it here for us to hear! Love you!

Leigh Anne said...

You are so cute! This put a smile on my face. Glad I'm not the only one who has a burning passion for the moving process! So glad to put a voice with a face (:

Happy Thursday!!

Annelise @ Aunie Sauce said...

I love this! I can totally tell you have a beautiful singing voice just from listening to the way you speak. You are so fun to listen to and watch!

Breanna Hohenstein said...

You are too cute :) Loved your vlog! Glad to finally put a voice to your face! Good luck moving girll!

Annie said...

You are too funny and so cute! I hate moving too. And I feel like college is just one move after another after another. I can't wait until I find a job somewhere so I can move there and stay there! And you should definitely have someone record you singing "At Last" and then share with us. Please?

Britt @ The Magnolia Pair said...

You are so cute! Girl, did not know we are so similar! I just moved to a new place and feel the same way about the friends topic! And, I really really want you to post a video of you singing now, I can imagine that you have a beautiful voice!

I'm 100% with Jessica ... next vlog you should sing!!! :) I'd love to hear!

Oh gosh, I'm the same way about blogging in front/or around/ or even within a 1,000 feet radius of C. I don't know why, but I get embarrassed.

Thanks for sharing all that you're learning! I enjoyed watching! :)

xoxo

I think you should do a practice round of "At Last" here on your blog!!! I don't riff either. I guess it's the classically trained singer in me! And I prefer to call it "ornamentals" lol

Yoginis unite!!! I knew I liked you but we have too much in common. Musical theatre, ASL, and now yoga???? I started my practice two summers ago!

Erin said...

You are beautiful and have an even more beautiful heart, girl!

So happy to have found your blog :)

lo @ crazy ever after said...

I haven't watched your vlog (my iPhone won't let me) but I very much love your blog and am glad I found you. I linked to you through the Emily and Emily guest post. :)

Lisa @ MMT said...

Aww! So glad I got to see you on video! You are so sweet and your voice is much softer than I imagined :) I HATE, HATE moving too! 12 times in the last 4 years has made me so over it. Glad this will be our last move for a while haha. Hope your move goes quickly.
I totally wish you would have sang the song at the end! What a tease to tell us you are singing and then not sing lol.

Nicole said...

Ahhh I thought you were going to sing!! So glad that you linked up. I hate moving also! I'm the cook and my husband is the cleaner of the kitchen- so we have a little bit of teamwork going on in the domestication dept also!! I really hope your move goes smoothly, as I'm sure it will. I too am learning to live in a town with not many people to socialize with, it's a tiny town - thank goodness for the blogging community!!

Chelsea said...

You are SO cute! I loved getting to know you a little better!

Michelle said...

Lindsay!!!!! You are so cute :) Same friend situation here! I feel ya :) But doesn't blogging help SO much?!? I wish we lived in the same place!!

Also, I can totally tell you have a musical theater voice. And I'm dying to hear you sing because I know that you sound amazing. :)

Have a good weekend, I hope the moving goes smoothly!! I hate it just as much as you do!

Jasmine said...

I love this! You're so beautiful! Seriously! You're so happy, I just want to hug you!

I love that you're learning At Last, it's such a beautiful song! Also, I read your About Me page and even though I live in Australia, my very Australian boyf also supports Green Bay and doesn't turn down popcorn at the movies - so there ya go!

I read Emily's comment and not to be too forward, except that I'm going to be just that, I think you should practice At Last on Skype with me too! Yay! Great idea! xx

Beverly said...

this is adorbs!! definitely makes a difference when you put a voice to a blog!! love it.

thanks for keeping it real... and so relatable. I moved from all my family and friends from Cali to Oregon (for the fiancé's job)... it was supposed to be a year, and we've been here 3 years!! working on my dissertation is great while being away from everything... things get done faster, and there's less temptation to parlayyy!!

happy moving girlie!

Kristen @ Confessions of a GDS said...

You are so good at vlogging! Really enjoyed matching the voice to the face... your smile is contagious :)

deertale said...

I loved this! you're so cute! And the whole thing about moving new places and not having friends, totally in that boat! We've lived here for a year and we're slow on the friend making thing also. its really hard!
