Do it #fortheblog grateful heart monday vlog

A Grateful Heart Vlog (+ week-long linkup!)

August 25, 2014

Remember last week when I said I was grateful for the freedom of gratefulness? And I said that the awesome thing about being grateful is that it doesn’t matter how small or big or as deep or shallow as it may seem – whatever you’re grateful for – that it still counts? Alright, well with that all set up, I’m going to tell you now that today I am grateful for the Cookie Dough Oreos, Limited Edition. And no, I’m not even sorry about it. A lot of you encouraged me to try these bad boys after mentioning last week how sad I was that I had to pass them up at the grocery store (being on the health kick I’m currently fighting) and I thought, you know what? DO IT FOR THE BLOG, DUDE. It was a tough feat but I made it through and what’s even better (possibly) is that I put the entire taste testing experience on video. You’ll have to excuse the fact that I was not feelin’ the whole “hair and makeup” thing considering it was 100 degrees with 200% humidity but maybe we can also consider this my Don’t Try So Hard selfie?! Two birds, one stone?! (No birds were harmed in the making of this video.)

So there you go. What have you been wanting to try lately? May I encourage you to DO IT #fortheblog?! Oh, and then be super grateful for it or for something else. Because being grateful is oh so good for the soul.

What are you grateful for?
Link up below and join the rest of us in starting each day this week with a grateful heart. Not enough time to write a Grateful Heart post today? No worries! This linkup will be open until Friday! 

There are three easy rules for this linkup:

1. Link up to your Grateful Heart post, not just your blog’s homepage and please link your post back here (via link or GH button) so that others can link up too! *Any posts that do not have to do with this GH topic or those that do not link back up to this blog will be deleted. 

2. If you share your Grateful Heart post on social media, please use #gratefulheart so that we can all find each other (If you use this hashtag on twitter, tag me & I will retweet! @embergreyblog)

3. Carry on and be grateful! XO!

  • Yay!! Your first vlog! 😀 Don't think I'll ever be eating oreos again, but this was worth watching just to "meet" you! 😉 I have to say 1) Something about the way you talk reminds me of Drew Barrymore at certain moments. Not sure why. But that's awesome. 😉 and 2) I love your hair here! 😀

  • I love everything about this…..you made me smile and laugh. More importantly as a hater of milk, you have made me wonder why I have never dunked my Oreos in alcohol. I may just have to do it. You know, #fortheblog.

  • I see Drew Barrymore too! That's better than Glen Close right? If I'm remembering that correctly.

  • Teagan will love you. She loves oreos 🙂

  • YOU ARE SO CUTE. That's all. Happy Monday! xo

  • hahahahahah #FORTHEBLOG!!!! I feel like I should be running into the grocery store gladiator-style yelling that. Also, you're adorable. that is all.

  • also, on a second note. can we just talk about the fact that you dipped your oreo in wine. bahahaha

  • I haven't tried those and I'm crazy scared to do it because I know (I just KNOW) I'd eat the entire box!

  • You are so adorable lol! I haven't tried these yet. Call me old fashioned or creature of habit but I just can't seem to veer from my double stuffed Oreo's. LOL!

  • Melissa Camacho

    This totally made my monday, not even kidding. The video, the blog everything- amazing! hahaha, I wonder what sort of #fortheblog things I can come up with! hahaha. Thank you!!

  • This is the best thing in the blog world! Dipping oreos in wine….why did I never think of that?! I really don't want to purchase these for the fact that I know I'd like them and then proceed to eat the whole container!

  • Ahhhhhh best. vlog. ever. I guess I'll have to go pick some up!

  • For the love of all that is good in the world, I will have to immediately seek these Oreos. There is almost nothing better than chocolate and wine.
    Also, you are beautiful.

  • aren't they so good?

  • ashortblonde

  • hahah!!!! DO IT!!! That visual is hilarious.

  • oh I know. That's why I brought them over to girl night and then let my husband eat the rest of them 😉 ha!

  • Yeah Double Stuffed Oreos are the jam too but these really were awesome. Very rich though… I only had a couple!

  • haha!! So glad!!! 😉 (And yes… I think there's a lot of things we could all do/try and blame it on our blog. I'm up for it!)

  • RIGHT!!

  • XO! Girl, try it!!! But yes, I do hear you… I didn't want the entire box in our house either. They were so rich though that I could only eat a few and that was good enough for me!

  • haha! 😉 I mean, I guess you just must try them!!

  • Like, immediately. That's how I felt too. Eat a few and then give them away to anyone you meet, ha! That's what I tried to do.
    Also, thank you for making my day. Seriously. XO
