Ask the mister and my first ever video blog!

I normally only post once a day, but I just made my first video blog and I couldn't wait 'till Monday to upload it!

Now be nice - this was my first time doing this and I only did it once - that's right, you're getting raw material, no editing or extra takes (as I'm sure you'll realize when you watch it). A couple things I learned from this: I don't think I really have that weird sort of double chin that appears and re-appears throughout, I think it was just the angle, I roll my eyes and make weird facial expressions a lot, and I was really excited so I'm talking a little fast.



What do you think? And please, ask those questions - Ben's excited to see what you come up with!

A few thoughts:

1. Your voice is totally like I thought it would be!

2. You don't have as thick of an accent as some American vloggers do. But you said "about" weird ;) ;) JK, JK, apparently us Canadians say "about" weird so I dunno!

3. Can we meet in real life and talk really fast about everything under the sun and have drinks REALLY SOON!?

4. My question for Ben: What is your favourite activity to do with Becky and why? (this is a NON-DIRTY question, fyi! Haha. G-rated answer, please! ;))

Katy said...

Very Cute!! IDK if I could ever do a video blog on mine! Im so self conscious!! :) Be proud of yourself! And I agree with the first comment... you totally sound like I thought you would. Im excited to see more...

Stevie said...

Ahhhhhh, I love you even more now! You're so cute!

Whenever I want my hair to grow out, I take pre-natal vitamins. They make my hair and nails grow like CRAZY.

For Ben: One of my favorite things about Becky's blog is that she comes across as extremely genuine, intelligent, thoughtful and down to earth. What is YOUR favorite thing about Becky?

Nora said...

Ah, I love it! this makes me MISS YOU. Like so much that I want to smoosh our states closer together.

Isn't vlogging fun!? I bet you'll get addicted. No, seriously. You will.

Question for Ben: What are your thoughts on Becky meeting her blog friends in real life? Would you ever start a blog? I know you like art, so if you could pick one painting/sculpture to depict your love for Becky, what would it be?

Shaina said...

This is great! Perhaps you have convinced ME to do a vlog. Maybe. Maybe not. I haven't decided yet. :) I always stare at my own picture in the corner of the screen when I skype with Matt. How awful! I gaze at his face and then I have to look at myself to make sure I look okay. :) Also I always swoop into the webcam to give him a "kiss" and I have to stare at myself when I'm doing it to make sure I am heading in the right direction. GOD I AM SUCH A NERD.

Anyway. Let's see. Questions for Ben ....... who is your favorite artist? Boxers or briefs? Or boxer briefs? Favorite color? Favorite place you have traveled to? Place you WANT to travel to? Dream car? Dogs or cats?

Mmmm that's all I can think of right now. :)

Ben:
How does BEcky REALLY deal with stress?
How many hours does she have to be up before you are allowed to speak to her?
Is she a cover hog??

Jess said...

1. You actually talk much FASTER in real life. Thank God. It's one of the things I love about you...someone else who talks as quickly as I do.

2. I like your hair longer. It's so gorgeous. I wish you'd keep it long. *sigh*

3. I'm just gonna ask Ben lots of questions about you next weekend. Get all your dirty little secrets. Bwahaha!

4. No, you do not have a double chin or anything resembling one in real life.

5. Aww! You're so cute. I can't wait to see you. Yay!

Johanna Derrenbacker said...

Todd and I were watching your video blog and he says, "Is that the girl in my bathroom, kissing somebody?" And I said, "What??" So...long story short I actually have this picture box in my guest bathroom that has a picture of you at camp kissing Zak on the cheek..and he recognized you!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA...Thought you might think that was funny..love you and miss you :)

Mandy said...

I love you! You did an awesome first vlog! I have yet to do one because the ones I have recorded are horribly awkward and dorky. I love your hair long. Spin pins and prenatal vitamins! Which reminds me I am in desperate need of a trim.

Questions for Ben: When did you know Becky was the girl you were going to marry? Can you please start a blog too? Can the two of you please come back to Wheeling so we can hang out ASAP?

Megan said...

You are a nerd. :)

My question: who is awesome...me or Becky?

Charbelle said...

Your hair is gorgeous!! You sound just like I thought you would! Jess's comment about how fast you talk made me laugh!!
For Ben with Becky doing the running thing how do you support her and have you been tempted to join her? The what are your favorite things to do (G rated) question has already been asked.

Breathe Gently said...

You look great!! :)

It's SO hard not to look at yourself, haha, you cracked me up.

Hmmm.. okay, question for B: do you read any blogs? If yes, who are your top fives. If no, WHY NOT?

A D Coursey said...

omgosh! the first thing i thought when i watched this was that you reminded me of your mom! [circa 1998, which might have been the last time i saw her, lol.]
vlog's are awesome, some people are just made for them! do continue. =o)

hmmmm... Qs for the Mister...
1. what kind of work do you see yourself doing 5 years from now?
2. if/when you and Becky have kids, do you want them to be artists like you, or have different interests?
3. can you tell Becky that we are overdue for a "hey i haven't seen you in forever, what a cutie your baby is turning out to be!" get together?

Lisa from Lisa's Yarns said...

Awwww!!! You are too cute!! :) Grinning ear to ear - loved matching a voice to a face!!

Ok, questions for Ben:

1. When did you know you wanted to marry Becky?
2. How did you propose?

So brave of you to do a vlog! You are just cute as a button! Love the speed talking - that is totally how i am and how i would be if I did a vlog!

S.I.F. said...

Yay Yay Yay! I love seeing people do Vlogs, because it's like they suddenly become real! I love it!

OK, Ben: When was the first moment you really realized that you loved Becky?

Diana Mieczan said...

You are a doll...Love that video post:)

My question is: when did he know that you are the one for him?

Kisses,sweetie

Kinsey Michaels said...

Haha, loved your video blog! I think your voice sounds different than I thought it would! You're so funny too :)

love love love this vlog. Too cute!

Best,

Hannah Katy

Darcie said...

I've always said your hair looks great long--I like long hair on people and it looks great on you.

Knowing you in real life, it was strange watching you on this vlog--definitely no double chin, in fact, you look great! I felt you were very animated and for video that's a good thing.

Again, knowing you both in real life, I have tried to come up with a question for Ben and I am drawing blanks.

Em said...

Hey PP4L! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this video post. It's fabulous. I wish I was you. I think the blogging is great and has made me have the pang to also start a blog.

For everyone who's asked all these questions about Becky for Ben....trust me, Becks is as fabulous as she sounds. We've known each other since we were in diapers and she's that awesome.

My question for Ben: Who's is Becky's favorite Catholic Friend...hahaha. Love you both!
