Now You See Me...


What was I thinking?!?!?


Seriously. This is so not good for the self esteem.



The first video below, I did in August as a trial run...and I'm sharing it with you for the sheer "shock" value of my traumatized self. That sentence makes no sense...



Also, I have a couple disclaimers.

  1. In real life, I do not, in fact, have raccoon eyes. For my next video, which will be....never...I hope to have some of those high-wattage Hollywood lights that make every wrinkle, flaw, and raccoon eye disappear. Next time.
  2. This is likely THE MOST BORING post along the linky journey of I See What You're Saying...I think there should be a prize for that...I'm just sayin'.







My actual "See Me" post is below. Good luck. Thank you blogger for pausing on the absolute worst expression possible.

  1. No video from me. I'm not brave enough. :) I applaud you. You did good.

    And there's nothing wrong with being random. It just means you can think about a LOT of things AT ONCE.

  2. Well, was I dorky enough for ya?! You are NOT a dork! You are cute and poised and animated, even your left side. Oh Sarah, thanks for doing this project. People are going to love seeing you and hearing your voice, lisp or no. (And I believe you--no lisp.) Have a great, fun day blog hopping. I'm just sad I have to go to work now! Love, Linda Crow

  3. Dorky or not! I do not care! It was hilarious and made my laugh! What more could you ask for, but to make someone laugh and have a great day!

    Thanks Sarah!

  4. You did great! We women are very self-conscience...that's why I didn't do a CLOSE UP video. No one can notice my flaws from the distance. I just had to make sure I didn't have holes in my socks. LOL!

    (If you don't get that joke, you have to watch my video).

  5. I. Love. You.

    Your video is so great. It was a great way to start my day, seeing your adorable face.

    You want to talk about last minute? I'm still undecided. Today. The day of the video posting.

  6. i love your video Sarah!! And you are not the last...as I type this, my post is NOT up yet....but it will be later this morning.......ya, I tend to procrastinate things I am not sure I want to do!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Great job, Sarah! If I was computer savvy enough I just may have tried to do a video post, but I'm just not.

  8. OH MY GOODNESS, you are absolutely hilarious and you had me laughing out loud this morning. Thank you for posting and putting yourself "out there" for all of us! I love, love, love your post. I so love your blog and look forward to it each day!

  9. I loved your video's! You are adorable! And since I'm jonesing for my sweaters I absolutely LOVE the brown cozy sweater you are wearing!
    And I say kudos to you -- I'm not brave enough -- nor am I computer savvy enough to do a video of myself.
    Blessings!

  10. Oh my gosh, your accent is adorable! (Yes, you have an accent... to me anyway... you probably don't to anyone else.)

    So glad you did this. Don't know how glad I am that you talked me into doing this. :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh, and don't worry - the blogger video stopped on the worst shot of me too. I'm sure there's some tech-y guys sitting around somewhere having a good laugh right now.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I'm so impressed with all of you that did video posting. I am too much of a dork to even try!

    You are as adorable in person as you are on your blog. It's so fun to put a face and a voice to your words. I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  13. You are so cute!! I wish I could have done this...maybe next time. It was fun to put a voice with your words...I pictured your voice to be a tad deeper sounding, but I love the voice I heard and I'll take your word on the lisp part.

    ReplyDelete
  14. You totally cracked me up this morning! You look/sound exactly as I pictured you. Pretty, funny, sweet, someone who would be totally fun to hang out with. Don't be too hard on yourself. At least you had the guts to get out there and put yourself out in the blogosphere! :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. SO cute. Random is good.
    I love that you were brave enough to post not 1 but 2 videos.
    You GLOW Girl! Blessings

  16. So my husband watched my videos for the first time this morning and informed me that
    1) I really do look traumatized in the first video
    2) My voice sounds totally different in real life.

    this comes from the man that NEVER noticed (in 15 years) that the left side of my mouth looks paralized when I talk...so I'm not sure if his input is valid or not...the jury is still out on this one ;)

    Thanks anyways honey.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I absolutely adored this. Youa re so worried about your lisp, but honey, really, lots of people have lisps and there is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. Just embrace your inner lisper.
    I'll be back to see how you deal.

    ReplyDelete
  18. So glad you did this. It is nice to hear your voice! You said on your comment to me that you use your hands when you talk, but you didn't here! Oh well, Maybe next time. Will you do it next time?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love it! I'm so glad you did this, it was fun to put a voice with your post. Even if it isn't what you sound like in real life. And I'll take your word on the no lisp thing, not that there would be anything wrong with having one.

    ReplyDelete
  20. random is my favorite state to be in! :)

    you were great!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I just love you. Just sayin'. From one dork to another.

    ReplyDelete
  22. aww sarah...you're no dork. so good to finally "meetcha". you're sure cute and funny!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love it! It's so fun to feel like I've met you "for real" ;)
    Seriously though, I'm freaking out, because your voice totally reminds of someone in a movie, and I CAN'T figure out who it is! I'm going CRAZY!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sarah, You rock! That was great!! The first one totally made me laugh, not at you, but what you were saying.

    You rock!

    ReplyDelete
  25. nice to "meet" you...sorry you can't meet me back...i'm totally coward to do this!

    paralysis? i don't notice anything.

    loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I actually really liked both videos! Funny. I popped over to say "hello". I've yet to decide if I'm actually going to post my video attempt yet! Nice to meet you!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well then, my video should have made you feel a WHOLE lot because mine was steeped in DORK. If possible, I love you even more now...I love the fact that you can just get up in front of the camera and ramble and be super cute and funny. So glad you did this!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I laughed so hard that my soda went down the wrong pipe and started to come out my nose...So funny, so cute...the lisp thing is cracking me up...I have a lisp on our home answering machine only..so the hubby has to do the message...thanks for making me laugh =)

    ReplyDelete
  29. in addition to dorky...i'm 30 lbs overweight and menopausal, so it's been a fun summer.
    A bathing suit never touched my body yet I have thoroughly enjoyed posting and getting to know ya'll through 2nd cup...
    good video
    : )

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh my...you hope everyone else is a dork??? This is why I didn't participate! LOL You look fine...and you are NOT a dork!! I'm going to go watch some more, though!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. LOL!!!! You are adorable, my dear. I love it!!!

    Okay, I'll go make one....adorkable or not.

    ReplyDelete
  32. First off, let me say this:

    Everyone dislikes the way they look/sound on camera. I sound JUST like a cross between a Yankee and a Southern Belle. SO.Not.Joking. It's just awful!

    Secondly:

    I love your randomness. It is inspiring. Seriously!

    ReplyDelete
  33. That was too funny!

    Girl, if you are looking for dorky you should try my video! rofl

    It was a pleasure "meeting" you!

    ReplyDelete
  34. okay, I am gonna shoot straight with you sarah, these videos don't do your cuteness justice. *smile*
    you are way cuter than how you look on these!
    the lisp??!! where did that come from?!?! you DO NOT have a lisp...but on this video...yep there is a lisp! now that's funny!
    the talking out the side, yeah, you do that, but it is cute!
    just like how Noah talks with his bottom lip like his daddy!
    There must be something odd that happens when one talks to a camera like it is a world of blog friends. I gotta say! You are still cute in the videos, just not AS cute as real life. They are gonna think you really have raccoon eyes and a lisp! lol!!that's funny!
    you are so brave and not full of yourself for putting these out there! I just may have to try this myself. Daniel has glorified "dorky" status. Now so have you! Who'd 've thought you and daniel would be my favorite dorks!!!???
    thanks!

  35. I loved it Sarah! :) I'm way late - just got mine posted.
    You seriously looked so frightened in the first video I was expecting tears at any moment, but in a relly cute way. :) SO FUN!! :) You really did a great job.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I really love it that this is my first time here and I got to hear your lisp.

    You're not a dork.

    Nice to "meet" you!

  38. An instant confidence booster for you would be to go visit my video blog. Not only am I much more boring, but it'll redefine the word dork for you.

    I thought your video was interesting!

    ReplyDelete
  39. You are just so stinkin' CUTE! I loved your videos. It's very nice to meet you, Sarah! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Visiting around from 2nd Cup. It was nice to meet you.

  41. lol, I thought you were cute. I know I could never do a video. I can't even stand to have my picture taken.

    ReplyDelete
  42. You are cute and sorry for the lisp on camera. Connie

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sara ~ You are just too funny! I love your randomness...it reminds me of, well, me in "real" life!
    Way to go on the video post...I don't even know how to download videos onto here. Another thing for the "to do" list, I guess!

    ReplyDelete
  44. haha! Too funny! You really don't have a lisp in real life. Ummm...I don't have the right equipment to video myself...so I'll just laugh at you! : )

    ReplyDelete
  45. I am so glad I didn't do this! But everyone who did it is wonderful[ly dorky]! JK!!!

    You have more guts than me.

    Life is random - thinking that way is FINE! You make us laugh
    :-)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Good job girl! You sound just like I thought you would - no lisp and I did not notice the mouth thingy you mentioned.

    Do it again sometime. PLEASE!

    Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  47. You are cute as a button. (That is a southern expression for being just great!)

    ReplyDelete
  48. It is pretty weird talking to the camera, isn't it? I had a hard time getting over that.

    I didn't think you looked like a dork.

  49. I LOVE IT!! You're real Sarah ... and that is what people love.

    ReplyDelete
  50. LOL - I believe you about the lisp. Even if you did, you are adorable! And.. I love the versatile hairstyle.

    ReplyDelete
  51. You. Are. Funny! I love this! Great videos. Great hair. Great blog.

    And I always say "peace out," so that was funny.

    Sorry I didn't do a video post...but I would have put other dorks to shame, that's for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Thank you for lifting my spirits. Don't laugh a lot these days, but I can say it's getting better. I love being around positive people who can look around and see humor. In my opinion I am not photogenic so I shy away from camaras. I do have a few professional shots taken that turned out OK. Thanks again for sharing.

  53. Sweet Sarah,
    I love you! You made me laugh out loud and smile for the whole time I watched you just like when I read each post!!! You are so endearing and I thank God I met ya!!!!You are so cute even if you are skinny!!!! I may have to try this some time although I don't even like pictures of me much less a video. Maybe I could just do an audio because I love to sing and God gave me a voice!;O)

  54. Your videos made me lol! You came off as very witty and charming and fun. Not real dory though ;-) My daughter has a lisp... I think its adorable.

    ReplyDelete
  55. If you want to see a real dork, check out my video post. After I did it, I thought "do I really sound and look that bad?" :( I thought you did much better than I did.

    ReplyDelete
  56. "helps you to sound like an idiot" is the most classic line EVER You are adorable!!! HILARIOUS!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Sarah...these were AWESOME and hilarious. I'm sitting here in my house...alone, absolutely laughing out loud. I love that I've heard your voice, because now when I read your blog, I'll hear it in "your voice". I admire your courage, girlie. Adorable videos!

    Blessings,
    Tracy

  58. Great job, Sarah! Your charming personality came through loud and clear. :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Sarah, I just love ya. Your videos made me smile. :) So...if you ever want to move to GA, the house across the street from me is available. And it has a nice yard for the kids. As for your neighbors...they would be fantastic! ;) Oh, and Starbucks in within 15 minutes. :)

  60. Hi! I am still just getting around to all the videos from Tuesday's "I See What You're Saying". I have not proceeded in numerical order- what does that say about me?? This has been a blast. It's nice to meet you. Your 2 video post was absolutely great. Thanks for making me laugh!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I loved "seeing what you're saying". Thanks for doing this...and don't worry, mine was plenty dorky. I was making it up as I went. And at least you're young and cute and animated. Okay, I'm animated -- too animated. But you're also poised and cute. Did I already say cute? Well in my experience we pastor's wives don't get nearly enough "You're cutes" so here's three for you today!!!

    Nice to meet ya!!!
