The goooorl behind this blog!

It's time to join in on the fun with my first ever in all blog land... a VLOG!! Lindsay at Trial By Sapphire and Ashley at 5ohWifey are hosting another Girl Behind the Blog series #5! When I read the deets here, I had to put my game face on, and get a video prepped! 

5ohwifey

The theme of this vlog was hopes, dreams, and aspirations. Okay.. not all of the above, but you get it... it was based on a goal we're looking towards achieving. Here are the specifics they asked for:

Introduce yourself and your blog.
What is one thing you are hoping to begin, accomplish, or change?
Why is this goal important to you?
What are your plans to achieve this goal?

So after a few re-takes of pretty much the same opening line of "HI I'M BEVERLY" and only lasting about 10 seconds until I was going way off topic, I finally made a complete video... best part is I have a co-host! Watch and learn friends!

WARNING! This video looks like I used the fish eye lens, and one side of my face looks a bit bulged... this is NOT reality, and I couldn't record it again, so what you see is what you get! My fish-eyed face! ANDDD lighting is all bad... but guess what? First vlog = EXCUSED!

Hope I didn't scurrrr you away! Link up with Lindsay and Ashley and give us your SNIPPET!

What you've accomplished lately is great! School and getting married--they're both pretty big and take a lot of time and attention!

Bev, you are just too much fun! You are the vlogger who people watch and then think, "I want to hang out with her." TRUTH.

You are so awesome for the major milestones you've just conquered! Dissertation! Marriage! That's a lot to chew on, but here you are, vlogging and smiling and being your same sweet self! I have faith that I'll be able to keep blogging while in grad school now that you've set the bar (maybe too high?)!

Thank you SO MUCH for linking up! You are awesome! Oh, and awesome first vlog! WAHOO!

I'm SO SO glad that you finally did a vlog! :)
eeeeek!
You are JUST how I pictured in my head! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!

And I'm so with you on being in the present. I'm so awful at keeping grounded; my head is always spinning in 1,000 directions! But I agree...you DO owe it to yourself...you've worked SUPPAAA hard to get where you are today, girl!

SO ENJOY IT!
And BE PRESENT IN IT :)

LOVE!

This link up was my first vlog too! lol. I think I was going crazy after so many "Hey guys! I'm Paige!"

I honestly think when I'm out of school, I will not know what the heck to do with my brain.

Congrats on getting married! I'm a newlywed as well (May 14th!). Isn't it great?
