My First Vlog!!

Happy weekend, all!  I tried my hand at a vlog for you all today!  A little nerve wracking….and I’m pretty sure I got my sport venues mixed up, but it was super fun to do! It basically covers our new toy, eats and exercise.  I kept it short, too.  Do tell if you enjoy it and/or want to see me do more!!
Thanks to You Tube for the flattering still!!  LOL  As mentioned in the video, here are a few random photos from the new Canon T2i!

Well, hope you enjoyed this!  Enjoy the rest of the weekend, folks!
Bye for now!!


  1. AHHHHHHH!!!! Krista!! I have the Canon t2i and I LOVE it (obviously). I got the t2i over the 50d mostly because of the HD video. Although, I've never actually used it for a vlog.

    I don't know much about the 75-300 but it'll probably be good for sports games since you can zoom in on the kids. It'll probably be super close for food though, so you might have to change back to the stock lens for that.

    I love your accent. You are so cute!

  2. Ahhh cool!! It's always fun to hear the voice behind the writing. :) Congratulations on your new purchase!!! You're going to absolutely love, love, love it! It really is amazing just how different the photos are, isn't it? You look at photos from a regular digital thinking they're great..but then take some from DSLRs and are AMAZED!! Have fun with it! My biggest tip- take photos. Hundreds in all different lighting and camera settings.

    I'm eating cereal much more than oats, too. :P

  3. LOVE the VLOG. You are a gorgeous lady. Your Canadian accent is adorable :) SO jealous of the Rebel!! The pictures are looking great- so clear. I want one of those cameras so bad- especially with the peanut on the way. I agree- I'm getting much more into cooler foods- like salads & cereals, as the weather is getting warmer. Can't believe how tall your daughter is getting. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. KEEP THE VLOGS COMING!!

  4. YAY!!!! I see you in action!!! :D

  5. P.S. - you look a bit like Shelley Duvall. Just realized that.

  6. Love love love blog Kristq. I feel that I know you betteer now that i know how you sound and speak! Keep doing it pleases!!!
    Congrats on getting the rebel camera, it's great. I have a similar one and whenever i can carry it, I carry it to take pics. I am quite lazy with the settings. So I mainly use CA or authomatic to take pics of food, with or without the flash depending on how much natural light I get. Let us know how the extra lense you got works, I was wondering how much it adds for a while.
    5k walks are great. I enjoy a lot walking with my hubby too, such a nice workout and nice moment to chat.

  7. Love the Vlog, Krista! And a huge congrats on your camera...the pictures are gorgeous!

  8. LOVE the vlog!!! And I would love to see more! :)

    What a cool new toy you got!!! Enjoy playing around with it!

    Have a great week!

  9. oh fun! I love the vlogging :)

    I think you will love your new camera. I was decided between the canon and the nikon but went with nikon because of overall cost. I wish I had some photography tips but I am still using the auto setting on mine!

    Your pics above are looking great! :)

  10. you must do more vlogs!! definitely crossing my fingers for tons of warm weather for you :)

    PS are you going to HLS this year do you think? Would love to meet you after all of these years!

    walking up hills is a HUGE workout.

    Have a great day tomorrow! Can't wait to see your nanner bread :)

  11. omg love the vlog! now i get a voice to a face!!! yay!!!!!

    and omg your daughter is tall! i only wish i were that height!

  12. love seeing vlogs.. it's so neat to hear what a person sounds like!! :) I think it is funny people said you have a canadian accent, I am Canadian too and just cant hear it! lol

  13. I love VLOGS!! And yours was great. I especially loved: a) your accent, b) that you use the term "kilometers" instead of miles in Canada (ha!) and c) how down to Earth you are in this vlog (and always).

    Personally I like shorter videos, as in 1-3 minutes, but this held my attention quite well. IN fact I'll be doing a series of vlogs coming up soon and I'll probably be asking you how you got yours on U-tube. I've never used it!

  14. How freaking cute you are! I adore the VLOG! Do more! CONGRATS on the camera! You guys def needed one with all the photos you take with sports and of family!!! I am so happy u guys got one! Best investment ever!

    Your pics look amazing! Isnt so amazing how much of a difference it is?!!

    Love u!!!

  15. I love the video! Congrats on the new camera :)

    I didn't know you were tall! I always assume everyone is like 5'4". (I'm 5'10".) I bet your daughter is going to be very tall when she grows up!

    Love the new pics. I have a great camera and I need to use it more instead of my crappy phone camera. If you get tips you should post them all cuz I still don't know how to use mine.

  16. Krista, you are adorable! You are gorgeous and I loved this video!!


I'd love to hear from you!! Please leave a comment!
