Posts Tagged ‘Vlog’


On this day two years ago, Evan and I stood in Times Square for ten hours sans food, a bathroom or a sitting break. But it was worth it. We watched the ball drop mere feet in front of us and kissed at midnight under the neon lights of Broadway-show billboards and the downpour of confetti.

On this day one year ago, we quite literally went down to a little white church where we said “I do” and kissed in front of our families and closest friends on the day that started the rest of our lives.

Today, we are working.

We have joked about how much pressure New Year’s Eve 2012 has on it’s back for us – the past two years have been so huge, we weren’t sure how we could possibly top it.

Turns out our normal is pretty fun, too.

I don’t know exactly what we’ll end up doing tonight, but I’m pretty sure it will be lovely. I’m so happy to celebrate our very first anniversary. Even if we’re celebrating on the couch with a calzone and alternating episodes of The Walking Dead and Parenthood.

This is my life. And I kind of love it.

And for your enjoyment, we put together a little vlog in honor of our anniversary. We answered the same set of questions, and didn’t see each others’ answers until we revealed them on video. It’s kind of boring, but you can see me make really weird faces. You’re welcome.

Also, the audio messes up and doesn’t sync with the video a couple times. I tried literally for hours to fix this, and did the best I can with my limited iMovie knowledge. Basically: deal with it. xo

Okay, y’all. I loooove watching beauty videos on YouTube. As in, it’s pretty much all I do at work. So, I decided to start my own.

I in NO way think I’m an expert on anything beauty-related, but it’s fun, and this is my blog so I get to do what I want.

Here is the debut of my YouTube channel (JeniFromtheRock) and my very first video. Please, don’t snort your corn out your nose because you’re laughing at me. Keep your corn in your mouth.

Please go to my channel and subscribe! I will totes love you forever.

Also, please excuse the video still. I’m learning. Therefore, I don’t know how to bypass the horrible stills YouTube offers just yet.

I Is From West Virginia.

I don’t typically participate in memes, but Kate @ Suburban Sweetheart posted a video challenge that I thought was really fun! (Go visit her site and watch her video!)

We all talk differently. For me, I say words like supes and totes that my parents don’t even understand. And drives ManFriend crazy. But dialect and twang are different, and I love it. I am from West Virginia, and it’s true – we’re hicks out here. And I’m okay with that.

So watch, make fun, do whatever. But you should post your own video! And be sure to link back!

(PS.. Pleast don’t pay attention to the video still YouTube decided to attach. I’ve changed it, but it takes up to 6 hours. Oh, YouTube.)

Words: aunt, route, wash, oil, theater, iron, salmon, caramel, fire, water, sure, data, ruin, crayon, toilet, New Orleans, pecan, both, again, probably, spitting image, Alabama, lawyer, coupon, mayonnaise, syrup, pajamas, caught.

1. What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?
2. What is the bug that curls into a ball when you touch it?
3. What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?
4. What do you call gym shoes?
5. What do you say to address a group of people?
6. What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?
7. What do you call your grandparents?
What do oyu call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?
8. What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?
9. What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

I’ve never done a video blog. Ever. I try to stay away from the camera (still and video) as much as humanly possible. This hasn’t always been the case – I used to LOVE the camera and being the center of attention. Okay, I still love being the center of attention, but I just hate seeing images of myself now. I think it’s a getting-older thing. Or maybe a getting-fatter thing. Hmm…

Anyway. I found this girl on YouTube | Elle / All that Glitters | who gives tutorials on makeup and beauty products, and just has some all-around fun videos for all things girly. I LOVE it. So, I decided that maybe this is my new venture. I won’t stop writing. I will NEVER stop writing. But, why not delve into a little more media?!

So I stole one of her video ideas and made a vlog about “What is in my Purse.” Very, very exciting, I know. Especially considering she pulled out a Louis Vuitton, and I’m sporting a Target satchel. Hey – I’m just Jenny from the Rock. (Salt Rock. Sad, I know.)

Here it ’tis. What do you think? Should I stick to writing? 🙂
