Hello

Have you ever seen a distracted Mom at the end of the day whose make-up has long since worn off, is sporting a wonky hair out the side of her head, AND is burning dinner?

Well, here ya go:



Ok, first things first, that spinach that I was burning? It was actually creamed spinach and it. is. amazing. (when not charred) Here is the recipe and please don't let the use of...well, spinach...deter you. I promise, it's yummy.

Now then, here is the button for the carnival:



Also, you can go to Linda's blog and click the very same button on the left to find out all of the fine details. Can't wait! And if I can do it, YOU definitely can!!



P.S. Upon publishing, I realized that this video makes me look like I have more energy that 10 monkeys on speed and for that I am truly sorry. I am not usually that "bubbly". :D

That looks so fun! I don't know if I'm brave enough to do it, though. Oh, I might.

If enough people bug me, I may do it... It is just a time thing lately for me- I don't have enough! I have never uploaded a video before. There is that enough whiny excuses. You are so pretty and you have a lovely nose. I loved the fat head comment and your funny body language. I am almost convinced to give it a go. i am such a goof though- I think you all might notice if I put myself on tape. It won't be a secret anymore!

His Girl said...

I'm sorry, but you are pretty much the cutest thing EVER.

will I do it? i can't even imagine... but maybe!

Dear Monkey-Girl,
I need whatever it is you are on.
(you know, the stuff that makes you bubbly, cute and energetic-sounding.)
:-)

Gayle said...

This looks like so much fun. I feel like we just had a real visit...with a ton of caffeine involved.

I loved the part where you pointed to the places on your blog that the button might appear. It was just like all those squares on the brady bunch intro where they all look around at each other.

OK, I love this idea. But I'm not making any promises to participate.

Right now my allergies have me so stopped up, I can't breathe through my nose. Mouth breathing is not attractive, especially on video.

Cute video. I think it captured you perfectly.

Reformed Grits said...

You are one weird Yankee....

;-)

Cindy Swanson said...

Gayle, that was AWESOME! You've truly set the standard for the rest of us...and clearly showed what a cute personality you have. I linked to this on my own blog today.

By the way, I think this may be the first time I've visited your blog (I got the link from Linda's), and I really like it!

Duckygirl said...

Love it! Hearing your voice and accent makes me like you even more, you are too cute!!

Michelle said...

oh, you are so cute! Love the video! Can't wait to see everyone's videos next week.

willblogforshoes said...

Well, aren't you a hoot!?!

Woggie keeps saying "Gin!" So we'll be here on your blog for the rest of the day watching you! :-)

Sounds like a fun carnival. I'm thinking I'm too big of a dork, though!

Connie said...

You are one brave girl and I love the y'all too! Must be the spinach giving you all that energy! Maybe I'll try a video after all.. Came over from Linda's-2nd cup of coffee. Your blog is fun...will have to visit more later. Connie

Ballerina Girl said...

hi! found you through Linda..2nd Cup...
I liked the video, yea, you are perky, but good perky, not over the top. (I mean like you really care what I think right?)
Anyways, I look forward to reading your blog more often now that I found you. Come and see mine (please:) hahaha
Hope you have a great weekend!

Drewe Llyn said...

Awww! You are so beautiful! I love the "See What You're Saying" idea. It really does bring you to life. I don't know if I can stand hearing and seeing myself! LOL! I'll ponder on participating and let you know. Have a great weekend!

ConservaChick said...

This was so much fun, and you ARE lovely! Now I want a Southern accent too! Think anyone would notice if I suddenly got one? ( ;

Cindy-Still His Girl said...

Umm....I'm here to testify that Gayle IS that bubbly and that IS just like her!!!

Love you, girlie.

Emily said...

10 monkeys on speed....hahahahaha. I read that before I watched it, and girl...you had me worried.

but no...

you were perfectly normal and cute.

carrie said...

you have NO idea how much I loved that!

however, if I were to do that, I would have nothing to say and lisp all over the place like a complete idiot. Yet, strangely, I want to play.

But you'll have to give me something to talk about or I'll freeze.

Any ideas?

Stacey said...

You are soooooo adorable Gayle! And just exactly how I imagined you would sound in my head--simply darling. Thanks for the peek, I'm off to snag that button, make you proud. xo

Sara @ Butterville said...

Love it! but not spinach. Can't wait for Tues. "see" you real soon.
Blessings to you.

Caroline said...

What do you mean "not usually that bubbly"...

yeah, RIGHT!

I love your energy.

10 monkeys on speed...that STILL cracks me up.

Just Me'n Mine said...

Okay, my computer is doing something weird, and not only will you not quit talking, its like, repeating and starting over, and over, AGAIN!

Meliss said...

You are sooo cute Gayle!
