So, did you guys know that I got pooped on by a bird during our engagement pictures? Yep, sure did. I'm pretty sure that I have told a couple of you this ... it seems that everyone is getting pooped on now-a-days. So, yes. It’s true. I got pooped on. My photographer laughed. Dan laughed. And then eventually I laughed. Really, really hard. Thank goodness I had two outfits.
But this post is not about bird poop. It’s about me giving in. It’s about me being a follower. It’s about finally getting to tell you all to SHUT UP already (I kid) about me getting a twitter account.

I did it.

Don’t forget the "J" in there.
"thecoffeehouse" was taken.
Imagine that. I’m a little late. Like six years late.

So, it's official. I am starting yet another thing that I have absolutely no time for. And speaking of "absolutely no" ... I have absolutely no freaking clue how to work this thing called twitter {Remember my phone? And my car?}. But at least I set it up. That's the first step, right? #nofreakingclue (look at me!).
So, just in case I break my twitter account, you can always follow me on facebook and pinterest (if this blog is just not doing it for ya).

Next up ... vlog.
Holy schnikes. I am impressing myself.

Oh but don't hold your breath on the vlog.
I have to get my hair fixed first.
Oh and work on my video voice. I HATE being filmed. Put a digital camera in my face and I will smile for hours. Maybe even do a little happy dance. Cock my head a little to one side (I'm pretty good at that). It's true ...
I love getting my picture taken.

But a real live video camera? Uh-uh. I freeze up.
So again ... don't hold your breath.

  5. I have 64 followers and following 250+ on twitter and have no clue how to use it or really the purpose of it...but the word on the street is that you MUST have twitter if you have a blog...i'm going to follow you right now and we can tweet about having no clue how to tweet-).

  6. Love your pictures!!
    Glad to see you've gotten a Twitter account. I myself got one awhile back. I always forget to use it though, unless I'm really really bored. Or I'm pooping. Then I think about it.
    TMI? Maybe.

  8. I got twitter a few months ago and still don't get the whole thing. I hope you have better luck! Look at you go! That's too funny that you got pooped on. The pictures look gorgeous anyway!

  9. I've been trying to figure out Twitter for awhile. I'll admit it, I still don't get it half the time. But I'll keep trying! If nothing else, I'm persistent.

  11. I'm in love with your engagement pictures, even if you did get pooped on in the process =). And I'm following you on twitter now. No pressure or anything, but I'm hoping for lots of Sherman tweets.

  12. hehe, i am impressed. even i don't have a twitter. mostly because i have no idea how it works.

    and vlogs. not going to even touch that because i talk with my hands and that is annoying. but i will be happy to watch your vlogs when you have pretty hair of course.

    :)

  18. I have no idea how to use twitter, but luckily I have an 18 year old brother. I still really don't understand what I can hashtag (that's the word right?)

  19. your engagement pics are gorgeous! and, having a bird poop on you is totally good luck! (or so they say..) following you now on twitter, i don't know what i'm doing either, i just hashtag everything :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Don't feel bad--I still haven't jumped on the twitter bandwagon! haha. I don't have the slightest clue how to work it...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Engagement photos are beautiful with or without bird poop...

    ...my Husband got pooped on by a seagull at the beach a couple of years ago. I laughed and laughed. I had never seen anyone get pooped on up until that point!

    Yay for Twitter! I've been on a few years, but I still don't get it all the way. I think I understand the basics. Going to follow!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I just followed you on Twitter. I'm only mildly excited about it. And by mildly, I mean I'm sort of stalker-ish and super excited! I've been pooped on a bird twice in my life and am anticipating impending doom for the third time. If I keep tanning on my roof top deck it will happen. Birds have nearly swooped into my legs on several occasions so the poop is surely to follow.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'll follow you on Twitter. I just got my own a few weeks ago and still am not entirely sure how to use it. :)

    I've gotten pooped on before too. It's all good!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I loooove Twitter! I think you actually get to know bloggers a bit better on there because sometimes people just put such random stuff about themselves. It's cool though.
    Oo I look forward to a future vlog of yours :)
    I've started doing them on mine, only on the first of every month though! I do hate filming them, but watching them back is far worse, I cringe at my voice aagggh!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm following you on twitter now.....is that stalking!!!

    I love the engagement photos and a bird pooping on you is meant to be good luck!!!

    Have a great day.

    ReplyDelete

    Love the pictures and sorry a bird thought of you as a good poop spot.

    ReplyDelete

  40. I've had twitter for a while and am only now kind of figuring out how to use it and its purpose. Now I'm slightly addicted to it.

    I sound like a 12 year old, so I can't imagine a vlog would be a good idea for me. :)

  41. Hilarious! Awesome ages! Bird poop is good luck I believe? Xx

  42. Those pictures are beautiful. Such a good looking couple! I gave in to Twitter too. I'm still not sure I'm doing it right. I'm going to go follow you.

  43. Yay for twitter! I'm following you now!

    I love these engagement pics...and the story makes them that much better. You always look so happy and I love that about you! :-)

  44. Your engagement photos are gorgeous. I love your hair that length. As for bird poop. Been there, done that. In junior high, everyone got pooped on by seagulls. It became the most common excuse for being late to class. As long as the poop doesn't land in your hair, it can be something to laugh about.

    As for twitter, you are way more advanced than me. I don't even have a facebook. :/

  46. These photos are the cutest, so maybe getting pooped on trying to get these shots was worth it! Also, yay for twitter (again)! And vlogs.. yikes. I've been toying with the idea of doing one for the longest time but I hate being filmed too, so it may be a while. BUT! You should definitely do one :) no pressure! xo
