you get to see me walking and talking: my first vlog ever!! (vlog = video log, p.s.)

thanks to THE stephanie (almost like THE ga) from live.laugh.love. and bathwater from memento mori, i have finally figured out how to upload a video! i had the "updated blogger editor" and you have to have the "old blogger editor." seems oxymoronic to me, but whatever. point is i have finally uploaded my own personal video for your viewing pleasure. here's the deal with this first vlog. i had just gotten home from work and had nothing to talk about since no one gave me topics or asked me any questions. plus, it was my first and you're always really nervous with your first. so sorry in advance if it's kind of boring, it's kind of just me talking. bailey makes her supporting actress debut, too. please don't judge. unless you do it nicely. i promise the content will be much better next time.

I love the vlog lady! I kinda want to try this vlogging thing.

BTW when you were talking to Bailey and held her up Hanna ran over and was barking and looking at my computer. It was funny!

carrie1 said...

I think you should do a meal vlog! =)

Karls said...

Topics? Topics? Topics? You got any rad party tricks? Mine is licking my own nipples or drinking a beer from my cleavage without hands - why does everything involved titties?

By the way... Hotness!

Shandal said...

Awe, you're so cute! I watched the video all the way btw, so I don't suck! ;) You should vlog a reenactment of the day Bailey chased a squirrel around outside and then brought the dead squirrel inside! LOL

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Well, where in the eff was the trifecta shout out? WHERE?!

And you're right, you don't really have much of an accent. But you are as adorable as I knew you'd be.

You want topics? Talk Trifecta!

I LOVE YOU!!!!!! You are amazing and you said my name on your blog and Bailey is so cute and your kitchen is adorable! I could go on, but I won't. Let's just say you rocked my world just now :)

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!
My laptop is totally flaking out on me and my tech support(husband) is in MICHIGAN.
WHERE IS THE MOTHEREFFING JUSTICE?
(Hopefully I can watch this tomorrow)

Tara said...

Tara said...

ps- this video will come in handy on my lonely nights.. *wink wink*

A few comments, no particular order:

1) Bailey is CUTE!
2) That is a lot of citrus product for one post. Though I do love a good orange candy slice and a clementine.
3) Like the Bailey voice too. Very funny.
4) That is your kitchen when it is DIRTY? Really? There was, like, nothing on the counters and it looked like everything had been freshly Cloroxed? (As I stare sadly at dishes in my sink that refuse to wash themselves ...)

Ashley said...

Omg you're so cute! And so is Bailey! She's much bigger than I thought she'd be though! :)

-Lauren said...

I kinda want to hang out with you..love the vlog.

Meagan@Megs7827 said...

Ok whole place is really cute! You could do more posts about decor. Quasi sneak peak also cute! I agree you should talk about the trifecta cause I don't really get it.

Stacy said...

Haha omg, at the beginning when you were calling Bailey...Rory was staring at the computer and turning her head like crazy!!!! She was like, what is that!!!? Haha, it was great!

Sole Matters said...

my ex SO used to make fun of me for changing the pitch in my voice when i talk to my dog. you do it too! haha love it! glad im not the only weirdo ;)

MiMi said...

Oooh, topics topics...let me see...
oh, FIRST, your house is cute and SO ARE YOU!!!!
And, where is your accent? I thought you were in Texas and you don't sound Texas-y.
What exactly is your job?
Quazi looks hot.
What kind of doggy is Bailey?
How the hell do you walk around with a laptop??!!

MiMi said...

OH! And I love those orange slices. :)

Cathy said...

Dude. Amazing. Also, only a slight accent, which is good, because that's pretty much how you sound in my head. So now I don't have to read your blog with a really think southern drawl to make it more realistic. I like that you talked about nothing. And I should give you a topic for the next one....um....ah...have you ever been in a hurricane? Gah. I don't know.

Kinsey Michaels said...

Damn I'm sad I can't see it using the iPad! I will have to come back and see it on my regular computer. Super cute new layout Meredith! I love the tagline too.

Marian said...

If I were a lesbian, I would totally hit on you...I hope that doesn't creep you out...meow;)

And I agree with some of the other ladies...you don't necessarily have a texas accent...though I did hear a few "ya'lls" in there...and I may have butchered the spelling on that.

And if you need some topics for your next vlog...how about a tour of you closet..i love me some clothes

have a fabulous weekend love

xoxo

Salt said...

Now I feel terrible that I did not give you topics.

But you are so adorable and that was great! And I love Bailey even more now than I did before and I'm glad that we got a virtual tour of your house.

But seriously, if your kitchen is dirty then I am like the most slovenly person on the planet.

Kiera said...

i freakin laughed out loud. you are so funny and you're totally not acting nervous!

sweet about the clementine truck. i woulda jumped out of my car and stashed them away like money.

who doesn't know wwhat a clementine is?!

Mrs. Lovely said...

Your dog is adorable! Honestly she was just too cute.

And I live in Canada and we have clementines here! Well, they're imported because Citrus fruit doesn't grow well in a climate that gets below freezing temperatures like 3 months of the year, but STILL, we can get them and I used to love them when I was a kid (they give me heartburn now).

ScoMan said...

Wow. You really don't have that much of an accent. I was surprised by that.

I was also surprised that Bailey seems to listen to you when you call. I've never had a dog that was that obedient. Maybe that says something about my dog training skills.

SG said...

I love vlogs and hearing what people sound like and their mannerisms. You're too cute!

I always like when people tour their homes/closets or talk about their makeup routines. So there are two ideas for ya!

jessalyn said...

omg.

i lurve you big time.

i am at work so i had to listen super quiet- but i am so replaying it tonight.

i love clementines. they are my fave.

Tara said...

Love.it. I hope you can visit me in Philly to make my new apartment look half as cute as yours. I am also really excited that the picture of us at the capital made it onto your vlog between the two pics of quasi. You're the cutest and I hope you do this again!

Monkey and Bean said...

For the love of ipads, please post this is an iPad friendly format. Girl, you are going to make me get my laptop out from under the couch.....that I am currently sitting on. I am lazy like that. But I also can't miss out on blogging awesomeness. As for topics, I am thinking you should blog the news sometimes. And also that squirrel reenactment.

Hutch said...

I've met a few people from Houston in my travels around the world (well ok the east coast) and no one has an accent! Why is that? Other than saying Y'all (or is it ya'all). I didn't hear a thing. You might even sound like you're from California it's so neutral! When I move I might hire you as a decorating consultant, love the walls. And clementines are a fave.

Kristin said...

You are SO pretty lady! And brave. I've been wanting to do a vlog but haven't summoned up the guts to do it yet. On a side note...One of my bestie's fur baby is named Baily. Such a cute name!

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Alright. I watched it again. Because I love you to death.

And this time, I have to say that I freaking about died when you burped on your first ever world premiere vlog.

THAT is why you are the best.

bananas. said...

So i can't watch videos at work but i caught the first half of your vlog late last night. Yea i blog stalk late at night. What of it? Haha.

You are so stinking cute! Loved bailey's cameo. Happy friday!!!

foxy said...

Loved it, girl!! I brought my earbuds to work since so many people were doing vlogs now. And I DID in fact watch it all the way through, so i do NOT suck, but yes those that didn't watch it all the way DO. :)

Hmmmmm... topics... well, i know everyone thinks your diet is really interesting. Maybe you can show us your fridge and what you eat. ??

Rasha said...

Cute vlog, hahaha love it. "wish i had a better face" hahaha

mrs.mfc said...

I SO love getting to see what people look and sound like!! Loved the vlog!!!

Lace said...

Uhm, I love you. LOVE. YOU.!

jessalyn said...

ok, so i just watched it again- still a little quiet because manfriend is sleeping- but i heard enough to know that i like the way you say "traffic". and also "all".

and i know i told you this before, but you have nice teeth. again.

and bailey should date patton. they would make the cutest, bestest pailey (patton+bailey) or batton, ANYWHO, they would make cute baby puppies. too bad patton has no balls left :( sads.

i want you and money to be my besties IRL. for reals, yo.

The Only Girl said...

You are SO freakin' cute!

And you have a real cute house. And Bailey is way bigger than I thought. And I'm slightly disappointed that you don't have an accent (WTH?) And I love that you kinda sorta did a house tour, but that it doesn't get you off the hook for an IWT. And I LOVE that you burped!

I want to hear an explanation as to why Quasi in only quasi and not fully. Also, what kind of things do you lobby for?

Great job. Looking forward to the next one. Also, between you and Salt enticing me, I may have to participate. If I ever get a good hair day going.

Bathwater said...

You are adorable! I know late to the show you would think I would be first after helping you set it up. Dealing with my own personal ignorance, you still work to much ;).

Brittany said...

You are just too adorable! I watched the whole thing :-) And a better face? Girl you're crazy lol - We finally got to see Quasi! and Bailey - who is just one cute little pup if I do say so myself. You did awesome for your first vlog! Oh and I love your kitchen.

Topics - I agree with a tour of your closet, maybe more of Bailey for us dog lovers out there, does she do any cool tricks? lol

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

You're too cute/funny!

Topic Idea: I wanna see you bake those cookies you're always raving about!! :)

Kelly @ Dare to be Domestic said...

Favorite bit: 'OMG you live in America."

Crazy Shenanigans said...

I loved this! And sadly I had no idea what a Clementine was?!?! lol

Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

Vlogs are so fun! It helps us get to know you better!

~KS said...

It's so fun to "meet" people through these Vlogs that I otherwise only knew on paper. And I love Bailey's cameo... she is adorable!!

Erin said...

I love clementines--yum!

You & Bailey are the cutest and this was a great job for your first vlog. it gets easier. I've got one brewing for this week, but who knows if I'll really get it done.

and if your kitchen is dirty, then i'd hate for you to see MINE--omg!

XOXOXOOX

Ashley @ KiwisandCocktails said...

I came over from Surfer Wife, but I have been here before! :))
I loved how you cussed and then asked if that was allowed on blogs...hahah, Like THE FCC is going to fine you now! :)
And the little burp. ha. GREAT first vlog!

hotpants™ said...

1. You're gorgeous.

2. Don't talk to me about having a dirty kitchen. Yours is sparkling clean.

3. I've never eaten a clementine, but I do know what they are.

4. OMG, I kinda sorta say Quasi!

sHp said...

This is precious! You totally crack me up!!!! Gorgeous hair by the way :) Love your sweet Bailey!
