Aggravated with blogger

So, over the past 4 years I have uploaded tons of photos and videos of my girls here to the blog for safe keeping, thinking I could access them at any point and time.


For months none of my videos have played and I know because I've been trying to watch them and remember what my girls were like as babies. Not I'm aggravated that I can't... and I can't find any answers online to help with the issue.

I have found a solution for future videos though. I am going to open up a YouTube account for our family videos. They'll probably be private, but then I can simply embed my videos to my blog posts, or even on Facebook.  Simple and easy and I know where they are and how to find them.

Blogger, you have let me down... don't let it happen again.

I haven't had much to say lately, guess I've been getting it all out of my systems on FB. I'm having a bit of a crazy week... starting with last Saturday. One thing that's made it harder is not having Chris home all week. He's not only my husband, or my baby daddy ;)  ... He's my best friend. And I miss him like crazy when he's away. I can't wait to see him later today.

One thing I did want to say is that I've been off my game. I haven't been cooking or cleaning like I want and need to. I'm going to try harder. Pray harder, study scriptures harder, listen harder to the spirit... yeah.  Stuff like that.  Maybe I can get back to my A game.  Or atleast B... Even C will do. Cause right now I'm a big ole F.

Having my Best Friend back at home with me will help a ton too.

Concert Time

You can make fun all you want. Tomorrow night I'll be at this concert. And I can't wait. 

My very first concert ever (and probably the best birthday present EVER) was going to see New Kids on the Block when I was in 1st grade(thank you dad!) I still have my ticket... 20 years later. And now I get to go again!

A sweet friend from church invited me a few weeks ago, and how could I say no?

I'm not expecting much, after all, this concert is probably the result of a few mid-life crisis'. These guys were in their 20's in the 80's!!! or 90's for some of them! But it's simply the fact that I adored them for years and years. Actually, now that I think about it, this concert may not be a great idea... it may burst my boy band bubble (like Lance Bass coming out of the closet). Kinda funny to think of a bunch of men in their mid 40's singing all these boy band songs. 

Regardless, I'm excited. Go ahead and make fun all you want. I'll still enjoy myself tomorrow night.

New app

Just added a new app to my iPod so I can blog from it. One advantage to this is that I take a ton of videos and photos using my iPod now and this way I can upload them very easily. Yay. How crazy is it to be this excited about an app.
