VLog: Yes, this is the girl who writes to you everyday.

Why hellllllllo Bloggers!
 {vlog rough draft- Maddie didn't make the final cut}

I'll keep this short and sweet- I did my Quarterly Vlog! You know, when once every 4-6 months I get online and talk to you in a video so you can actually "meet" the Chicago-obsessed girl who comments about your breakfast, your outfits, your husband and follows you on Instagram (@Caitielady08). I also thought it would be nice for you to see what I really look like in my lounge clothes without an elusive Photoshop glow. Usually my vids are less than 30 seconds but this one is 4 minutes! AHHH. I'm sorry. But I did try to think of interesting things to talk about, so I'll let the video speak for itself...and hopefully you will feel like you "know" me a bit better and get less creeped out when I remember details about your life from prior posts.



{My fave quote from this: "that's pretty much all I wanted to say, I just wanted to say hi.. and while you're all here, I wanted to say..." WOW Caitlin. Wow.}

[Note-this video won't appear on an Apple device.]

Oh, and another thing- I will announce the Blogger giveaway winner on Monday, my program to pick the winner isn't working presently- user error of course :)

Have a great weekend!

havent watched the video yet :( parents internet is slooooowwww, so im still waiting for it to load, however i thought you would appreciate to know im watching friends while i wait :) yay! xx

rinniez said...

firstly, so glad you said what your jumper was, i thought from the start it looked so cute and comfy but i couldnt work out if the symbols were a picture of something or what, so if you ever get bored of it i'll take it second hand cause ive totally just adopted the oregon ducks as my team (since noones ever told me to go for any other team) hahaha. secondly, i dont know how you manage to look so cute when you're just lounging round - crazy! thirdly, i totally get the enjoying seeing what people have been eating or just doing or whatever, non-bloggers just don't understand that.
and lastly, all your vlogs should be 4 minutes even if you do talk about nothing in particular haha!
:) xx
p.s. i wrote you a comment that appears to have disappered, that said while i was waiting for the video to load on my parents stupid super slow internet i was watching friends and i thought you would appreciate to know that lol

rinniez said...

oh and also (sorry for clogging up your comments)...
the guy in the video on my blog is derrick, an american guy who has lived in aus for about 5 years and runs the gym we were training at - he is absolutely hilarious, i reckon everyone wants to be friends with him :) xx

Lounge clothes or not, you're so pretty! I love the vlogs. It makes everything sooo much more personal. Maybe one day I'll let my huevos drop and record a little vid for you all to see.

Have a great weekend girl! :)

Slamdunk said...

Great stuff Miss Caitlin. You are a natural. I think everyone Bronco fan has to clarify whether they are a bandwagon jumper or not. Three years ago, my older son decided he liked the Broncos--long before it was a national trend.

And your noisy neighbor brought back bad memories for me living in an apartment. I worked overnights, but on the one regular night of sleep I had per week, I had the same thing going on at 3 am. Maybe they had the day off or something.

Have a good weekend.

Funnily enough, the video loaded till 33 secs for and stopped! lol It then started to load again bit by bit, but after that it was a struggle lol Congrats on the longest vlog you've ever done :)

Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said...

Btw, sorry for being mia and missing on so many of your blog updates... I'd been traveling and the internet was super limited, so we might as well say I was having an internet break lol But because blogging feels like a profession to me already, I did a lot of work prior to jetting off for further lands - the posts you've seen on my blog and others I was involved with at the time were pre-written and pre-scheduled. I guess that explains my presence but lack of two-way conversation lol

Barry said...

Well look at all these comments, looks like I'm not the only one besides your mom who watched your video, lol. It's so great to see you 'live' Caitlin, I always enjoy these vlogs. They make me feel more connected.

Speaking of which, I love how involved you get with your blogging friends. I'm the same, I'm always amazed at the relationships that can be made with our readers and I'm really glad we've met. =)

I almost went to Oregon! And I love..."I'm pretty sure she's a hooker..." Yay for fun vlogs!

Amber said...

Awesome! I have never done a vlog... hate my voice and think I look so awkward on camera! I love your comment about remembering things from people's previous posts... I have a memory like that! And at times I worry I am coming across as a creeper because I remember the weirdest stuff :)

Hope you have a great weekend!

LOL, the story about your hooker neighbor made me laugh so hard...oh man. You are super hilarious and witty in your vlogs and I love it! I love going to my parents' house and eating their food, haha. Isn't that what parents are good for these days?
