You See What I'm Sayin'




Not sure what to say except...


...HHEEEEEEEeeeeeeEERRRRRRRREEES

BECKY!



video



First of all, I would like to thank My Love who did the all the camera work and was extremely indulgent toward me during the process of making this film.

Second, I would like to thank all the little people, namely my kids, who did a great job at snake handling and adding some interest to my clip.

Third, just in case you think I am talented or confident enough to pull this off in one take I present to you the following as evidence to the contrary.

Thank you.


Edited after published: In case the above video wasn't enough to confirm it let me tell you now that I am a SCHMUCK! I completely forgot to thank the wonderful, beautiful, talented, gracious, and charming Linda at 2nd Cup of Coffee for organizing this cool meet and greet called I See What You're Saying. Thank you Linda, Thank you ~ Thank you ~Thank you! You can get to her awesome blog and the rest of the participants by clicking on the owl at the top... at least I got that right.


P.S. If you used Vimeo I can't see your video for some reason :-( I'll keep trying... I really want to see what you all are saying.

Becky, that's great! Nice to "meet" you! Hey, did one of those snakes get away?

Thanks for this, it's just what I needed.

Becky said...

heidi,

The snake didn't get away... its wrapped around Eden's (curly blonde hair)neck. She is in no danger, I swear ;-)

Debbie in CA : ) said...

Oh I'm so embarrassed that you heard the thud as I hit the floor! My delicate constitution just couldn't handle that snake-around-the-neck thing! EEEEKKKKK!!

You're ADORABLE! I love your video blog! Brava!!!

XOXOXO . . .

p.s.
Thanks for the encouraging comment on my blog. I love you!

You are EXACTLY like I thought you'd be ... hilarious. OH, Becky, I'm just gushing. Thank you for doing this, sweet friend. I am SO glad to have found your blog recently. What I would be missing would be a crime. And can I just say that if your wonderful child was in a musical, I would watch it one million times, esp. if she said my name every time! Have a wonderful, fun day, Becky!

Chatty Kelly said...

Cute kids, however! Great job.

Tabi said...

Your cracking me up with the musicals for Linda! Bet she is just going to "love" that!! :P

Dena @ Green Acres said...

Great video! I loved the suspense filled ending where you asked if someone fainted. Priceless! LOL

Rachel said...

Oh my gosh, you are a braver woman than I am!!! Snakes freak me out!

I love the cricket chirping!

Lisa said...

Thanks for sharing. I grew up with severe snake-fright...I see that your kids are in no danger of that!

DidiLyn said...

That was so enjoyable! I loved when you showed concern for the fainters.
LOVED IT!
You rock!

sara said...

okay...the cricket thing was really good!! but i have to say...I don't do snakes....seeing it around her neck was freaking me out!!!

Rebeckah said...

I think you are adorable and a FANTASTIC singer! WOW! I am also amazed that you have snakes. Snakes scare me. Your kids are SO cute : ). I don't think you look anything like the crazy lady in your profile : ). You look calm, collected and sweet!

Growin' with it! said...

did SOMEONE faint...pff, that'd be me..especially if you read my post from yesterday and my fear of snakes in toilets. very creative, fun to visit, loved the music...nice to meet you.

Rachel said...

Very funny! Do you sing in a chior? You should!

But for the record I think you are nuts for owning snakes!

Sara @ Butterville said...

Chirping cricket was really cool, how did you ever learn that?
Ummm, snakes really aren't my thing. I would scream bloody murder and THEN faint. Your kids are really brave.
Thanks for stopping by, nice to meet you!
Blessings.

Amy B said...

That is so funny! Great video!

I must say though that those snakes are scary. I nearly did pass out!

Edwina at The Picket Fence said...

SNAKES.........Oh my gosh!!!
Great job.

Julie said...

Hi, Becky!!! :D

What a fun video introduction. It really is nice to know the person behind the computer screen, isn't it?

Deven said...

Howdy! I'm married to a cricket chirper. I didn't know there were more out there. :) It was nice to meet you!

PS - I read the post about the Pepsi coupons, and I have to say THUMBS UP to you and Pepsi (aka Nectar of the Gods).

Wanda said...

Snaaaaaaaakes! I have that weird fear!

I know...their cool right?

Nice meeting you.

Connie said...

Loved the beginning music for Linda and don't love the snakes so much! Connie

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

Love it. Not the snakes, but the kids.

Nice to see you and meet you.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Oh, this was funny! I think I am one of the few people that aren't too freaked out by the snakes...well, harmless ones anyway. :) Love your voice, too...you are a talented lady! Nice to meet you.

Sue J. said...

Your artwork drew me right to your site (ha!!)....and as much as I'm not a snake fan, I was so mesmerized watching your kids that I had to see your video twice!! (Not to mention the fact that your blog name is one of the most clever I have come across.)

Glad I found you; I'll be back to visit!

Wendi @ Every Day Miracles said...

Ummm, what's wrong with saying 'um' 'cause I said it like a million times on my video post (as well as 'anyway', and 'like'). :)
Very fun Becky!! :)

His Girl said...

Damselfly said...

Hey, I wish I could chirp like a cricket like that! Cute snakes....

Kim said...

Great meeting you my dear! I think this is the beginning of many beautiful bloggy friendships. ;)

Blessings!!

ann said...

Okay, this is so awesome. I was at Linda's blog today and she was reflecting on the whole "I see what you're saying" thing. She mentioned that someone had a kid with a snake around his/her neck. I was so bummed that I didn't see that! And then I came here! YAY!!! I found you! Those snakes are awesome!

You are absolutely adorable, and I loved your cricket sound. It looks like you enjoy finding cool critters out in the yard with your kids too! I hope you'll keep sharing your finds with us.

It was very very nice to meet you!!!

Robin Lambright said...

I loved the snakes, it would have sent my hubby running for the hills, he has an unnatural fear of them. I can't say I would want one wrapped around my neck but it was nice to see your children so comfortable with them. Great video clip!
Blessings

PJ said...

I loved all THREE videos. The charming little one upset about writing. You...working with script...and babies... and.... SNAKES!! I once took my granddaught to a friend's house who had a corn snake (Like the golden one). Little m had it around her neck most of the day, much to her mother's horror...who was NOT there at the time!!

FUN!! Bless you for home schooling. It isn't easy.
