If you hesitate before initiating a toast because you don’t know what to say or you’re worried you’ll end up slamming your drink into another person’s beer and having unfortunate spillage issues, well, here is the advice you’ve been waiting for. Make any social outing just a touch more special by following a couple simple guidelines that will help you give a swell bar toast.


Lisa P. makes people smile on an everyday basis in all kinds of ways, but here she took initiative to offer one of the fail-proof means that others can easily adopt. If you want to be in a cranky mood, I do not recommend viewing this one. But if you want to turn that frown upside-down, this one’s for you.

All of my vlog videos are on YouTube so that I can post them here for free, and it turns out that a lot of YouTube viewers are crazy about blowing bubbles. It may even be a sick fetish in the case of one or two viewers, but I’m going to pretend that’s not the case–it’s just a bit too weird-icky to think about. Anyhow, after receiving several requests for more bubble-blowing videos and becoming slightly addicted to bubble gum since my first bubble-blowing how-to clip, I bring to you a small bubble-blowing trick. So get out your Hubba-Bubba and have some double-bubble blowing fun!

I’ve done it, you’ve done it, we’ve all done it–gone for the high five only to end up swinging through air, barely making hand contact, or accidentally slapping someone and ending up getting charged with simple assault. But with these simple instructions, our inept and jailbird days will be over. Well, they’ll be over when it comes to high-fiving, anyhow–the rest of it we’ll have to figure out on our own.

One more way to entertain yourself and impress your friends and neighbors! Bridget shares just one of her many talents in this quick and “handy” lesson.

Chewing gum is fun. Blowing bubbles is even funner. (Yeah, I know I’m supposed to say “more fun.” Whatever.)

In the future, I may try walking and blowing bubbles. That would be wild. And I may need to figure out how to remove gum from my face. I see more exciting posts coming up!

Here’s a tip my hairdresser (Laura at Pizazz Salon) taught me, and it seems worth sharing with the world. If you want to be a swimming fool but are avoiding the pool with the fear of green hair, this video is for you.

PS It’s not Laura’s fault that my hair looks lame at the start of this video. The kids and I were playing soccer, so I was victimized by major sweat and humidity, and I think I had been all about the ponytail right before filming. But I try to avoid too much vanity in my vlog posts or I’d never actually post anything. I’m sure you don’t usually notice. Ha!
