It’s Friday! (Fun fact: whenever I say anything about Friday, I hear the words of Rebecca Black’s infamous “Friday” song over the tune of Justin Bieber’s “Baby.”) That means I am going to be doing a vlog. For laymen, that’s a video blog. I talk on a camera. Ta DA! I answer YOUR questions, so if you don’t “like” my Facebook page, you’re missing out.
This week I’ve been a little cryptic—but only a little—that I’m on a road trip. I have a false sense of safety, so I forget that I shouldn’t do things like tell the online world I’m out of town. We usually leave our dog guarding the house, but still. But it’s tough not to post status updates that include beach photos, so generally there are some not-very-subtle hints, but not a tweet that’s like: “hhhhhhhhhhhhheeeeeeeeey! We have left our house totally empty and ready for you to steal stuff for the next five days, boiiiiii!”
I can fess up now, because we’ll be at home probably by the time you watch this vlog. We went to Gulf Shores this week with my parents. This is our fourth year and we LOVE it. I wish I could live at the beach, honestly. Growing up on the East Coast, we went to VA Beach, Nag’s Head, and (my favorite) Kiawah Island, SC. Now that we’re in Texas, Galveston is a great day trip, but for a REAL beach trip, we head East of the Mississippi for the clear waters of Alabama or Florida. More on our trip next week. For now, I’ll leave you with my vlog.
