In attempts to brighten your day

Hello, Friends.  I know your Monday probably sucks just a little bit right now.  I have something for that.  Don't worry, just plug your headphones into your computer, and make sure you can watch videos.  Or watch this on your phone during your lunch break.  And then thank Alissa for issuing the "What's in your senior yearbook?" Challenge.  Good call, Alissa.  Good call.

Can we talk for a minute about how long it takes for my vlogs to upload to YouTube?  Holy heck!  It usually takes anywhere from 20-45 minutes, and that's assuming it uploads on the first try.  I understand that in theory, I can record directly from youtube... that just seems to be an awful lot of work the one or two times I have tried it.  This video took 2 hours.  Yes, 2 hours.  I love you.

I'm really trying to get into the Daily Grace and My Drunk Kitchen on YouTube.  Everyone else seems to think they're hilarious, and I'm starting to think that I have either a horrible sense of humor, or I am not catching the correct episodes.  I do love all of the alcohol Hannah drinks as part of her "recipes", and the fact that Grace cut her own bangs on a vlog.  I just haven't fallen 185% in love yet.

In completely unrelated news, as some of you saw on Instagram last night (follow me, @RadiantKristen), I caved in and bought a generic weekly/monthly planner from target for $7.  It was a good price, and between work, school, and wedding schtuff, I really needed to have even a mediocre system.

Heck yes, I do in fact color code my planner.  You should try it sometime... very helpful.

Before you ask, the planner is by Greenrooom.  I chose it because it has the "month at a glance", 2 page weeks, and 2 full pages for notes each month.  It also has all of the 2013 AND 2014 holidays printed at the front on a quick reference sheet.  That right there made me pretty happy.  Okay, a lot happy.  It's the little things, you know?

So as we part ways and you go back to your Monday, I'll go back to mine.  But if you aren't quite ready yet, you can head on over to my wedding blog, For Richer or for DIY and find out all about my wedding dress!


  1. I'll have to wait until my lunch break to watch your vlog, but I appreciate you doing it AND waiting the 2 hours it took to upload. That's crazy!

    I had to watch a few Daily Grace videos before I really liked her. And I still don't find all of her videos that funny - but I do love when she attempts to cook something.

  2. I always see such great pictures of other people's adorable/organized planners and long to have the same thing. Then I'll buy a planner (usually from the $1 section of Target) and forget about it in my purse till it's filthy and torn up.

    Glad you found one that works for you!

  3. bahahah Ammon back there is killing me.
    also, way to take care of the Freshies. Sounds like you really meant a lot to them. :) you're awesome.

  4. i just bought the same planner - i chose the navy blue with silver polka dots. love love. and for $7 you cant beat it!


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
