Beck wanted to say hello before we kicked this thing off.

I'm pretty much sold, convinced, putting my foot down that I will never snapchat my life. One of my friends tried to talk me into it a few months ago and I was like NO, HASHTAG NO. No one (especially me) needs another vehicle for social media these days. No one. But then I secretly got an account to spy on The Bachelorette and her new fiance and it totally won me over. Well won me over enough to look at other peoples snaps. ;)

But! I do love the idea of Snapchat...a way to share basically all the junk that is too boring and basic to put on Instagram...which is what makes it brilliant. It's not polished and it's not filtered and it's so fun.

I take a decent amount of video clips on a weekly basis because I have such great memories of watching family videos every Sunday growing up. I feel like I'm building a little haphazard daily video journal of our life. And I figure now was the time to share! Which was something the internet was *clearly* missing.

Come a-freakin' board, mateys!

We'll let the video titles serve as captions as well.

Easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy posting at it's finest. #lazy

I know.

Chirp, chirp. Is anyone out there?

Maybe just one or two.

That's good enough.

I know what the question of the hour is.

Where have the glory posts of yore been?

I'll give you the quick recap.

Last post ---> glued to HurryandcatchuponGreysAnatomybeforethenewseasonstarts.com   ---> Fall Break ---> flooded the master bath and bedroom ---> death of a hard drive  ---> the flood aftermath and chaos containment ---> colds.

And even right as of now I sit with a cough drop in my mouth*, debating whether or not I blog, nap, finish laundry, paint our closets, unload the dishwasher, or parent. Obv which one I picked.

Because blog! You poor neglected thing. Has it really been almost a month?

I admit, it was really nice to not have blogging on the table for a while. But now that I have less than 24 hours left of Fall Break**, I am clearly seeing the foreboding gap in my schedule. And so it's back to you, blog. It's always back to you.

But all in good time. When our hard drive crashed we were able to get salvage some of our pictures and videos onto an external hard drive, but we lost a lot in the process. It's breaking my heart knowing that some videos of the boys in their early munchkin state are lost forever. I've been printing pictures almost every month for the past few years and have them all in albums, PRAISE ALL THINGS GOOD, but here's my PSA for the year.

- Back it all up and back it up good.

- Back it up like a boss.

- Back it up like you Beyonce.

- Back it up.

Posts, updates, diatribes, potty training chronicles and such coming soon to a blog near you.

Ahh it feels to good to be back.

* and ** thanks to the main subject of this blog, the childrenz, this short post took almost 24 hours to complete. so the timeline is a little off but we're rolling with it.
