[life] The Last... May 2015

This picture doesn't really have anything to do with this post, except that it was taken in May... and this is May's edition of "The Last"!

Borrowed this post idea from Lindsay at Pursuit of Pink- I thought it would be a fun blog edition each month! I changed a few from what she posted, but feel free to click the link to see her responses!

Thing I ate: A chocolate chip cookie (breakfast of champions). We purchased cookie dough from a school fundraiser for one of the youth at our church, and of course I had to immediately make them when we got home. Chocolate Chunk for the win.

Thing I watched: Texas Rangers baseball as they took on the Boston Red Sox (and WON!)

Account I followed on Instagram: Sadie Robertson from Duck Dynasty. I definitely DON'T watch that show... I'm not big into reality TV... but I am obSESSED with Dancing With The Stars (which I know is "reality", but it's more of a dance competition/reality... give me some slack!) and after the DWTS finale on Tuesday, I wanted to see everyone's pictures, so I followed Sadie. Great Christian gal too, such a sweetheart!

Activity I did: Took the dogs to the vet... It's always such an ordeal! Oliver is super chill about it, but Chloe gets all riled up. I mean, she KNOWS the vet building and what they do in that building. She is not a fan. They both were getting their yearly vaccines, and Chloe is allergic to one of them... the vet forgot, so he had to give her Benadryl as well, plus we started her on steroid pills for the next two weeks because her allergies are really bad... Long story short, I'm on Chloe-duty today making sure she doesn't have a reaction. Poor gal.

Product I used: Bath and Body Works "Wild Madagascar Vanilla" Fragrance Mist. That is my everyday scent. I use Chanel perfume on special occasions... but 9 times out of 10, I'll be sporting my B&BW. Mmmm...

Time I was shocked: One of my sweet friends revealed to me that she was pregnant with her second baby after they had been trying for a while. Of course, I was shocked in the best way!

Cute thing I saw: This on Pinterest... my word! Original source here.

There you have it! My "last" things I have recently done. Want to join? Copy the questions and post your own blog about it! Let me know in the comments so I can read yours too!

[life] 20 Random Facts About Me (and my first YOUTUBE video!)

Y'all. I made my first "regular" YouTube video! I had already posted two videos on my channel (both were from our travels), but I felt that adding ::hopefully:: a weekly, or even bi-weekly, video would give a voice and personality to my writing on the ol' blog! Plus I am an avid YouTube video watcher... there are loads of channels that I enjoy!

Anyhoo, my first video is 20 random facts about me! I thought this would be a good introductory video so you can get a sense of me and who I am. Obviously I am a novice at editing videos and the camera goes in/out of focus at times (ugh!), but I'm pretty proud of what I made!

Without further ado, here it is! Feel free to "subscribe" to my channel to get the latest videos I create, or you can just wait for the blog post... I'm sure I'll do a post for each video I do!

P.S. Does anyone else hate the sound of their voice being recorded? I'll have to get used to that!

Let me know of any other video ideas you would like me to create: there are plenty of YouTube "tags" out there that I could do, but if you have any ideas, send them my way. Happy Friday!
