Claim to Fame.

Let the record show that I don't consider myself a professional blogger, or even a particular talented, funny, or deliciously retro writer in the least, but everyone loves the spotlight right?
 Just a little?

I just got a phone call from my mom excitedly stating that my dad was reading the Deseret News paper that is delivered to our house weekly and said,"oh look, there's our daughter in this article..." haha As if that happens everyday or something! 
You can see my feature in the article "How Bloggers Make Money" written my the lovely and talented Kylie Lewis! Disclaimer: I'm the novice money-maker, not the full-income hot shot, so don't take anything I said as scripture! Funny thing is, I actually have the cookbook created by the first bloggers interviewed in the article, I'm such a giddy fan.
 Enjoy the article HERE

And I'll try to remember all of you little people when I'm in the New York Times someday ;)
 Juuuust kidding! It's so funny because after I read this article online a few weeks ago, I don't think I've written on my blog since! Mention a persons name in print and suddenly they get a big bad case of blogger stage fright. My name is Valerie, and I'm scared of spiders, gaining 100 lbs when pregnant, and blogging :) It's whatever. 

And also... did I ever tell you about that time I had a stare-down with a goat on the freeway? 

Alright, that's enough, Valerie. Back to the books. (repeat after me: three weeks, three weeks, three weeks...)

Harlem Shake

So before I was married, I told myself that I wouldn't become one of those boring haggard women who get married and, try as they might, cannot keep up with the times. I was gonna be hip ;)

News flash: I'm sooo not hip, or with the times. Almost every pop-culture song, gossip, or icon that's been huge for months I am just getting around to hearing about. Yesterday was proof of that.

I work at AskBYUI and the University Lost and Found on campus, and yesterday was our beloved Lost and Found sale. It's basically a glorified garage sale of everything that has not been claimed for 3+months. A co-worker came up to me and said that we were going to make a "Haarlem Shake" video.

You can imagine my deeerrr-what's-that?-I-am-ancient expression.

Ladies and Gents, you can see the AskBYUI Harrlem Shake video via Facebook HERE.
(I'm in the American flag mask)

Also, this week I received an early graduation present from my in-laws! Greatest thing ever.

To which I am just:

AND Ryan and I came home from class yesterday to find a 12 pack of Diet Dr. Pepper on our front porch followed by none other than this exchange of looks:

Thanks to the sweetest neighbors ever! (who also happens to blog over HERE!)

Are you guys enjoyed GIF's lately as much as me? I thought so...

Anyway, enjoy your weekend everyone! As for me and my house... We will stay in bed for the remainder of the day and try to kick this head cold!
