We have our own "Oh Sail Yes" blog/website now if you want to keep up with that.


Yesterday Patrick bought a couple of ukuleles and a small hand drum... thing at the Guitar Center Labor Day sale.  I learned a song on the uke already (as did Abyni).  It is SO much easier than a guitar!

Paris and Jazz are house/dog sitting for his bio-dad and step mom this weekend, and they have access to a ukulele and accordion.  They're learning a song as well!

I'm so excited to see what we all come up with musically when there are less distractions in our lives, although WOW do I appreciate youtube tutorials whilst we still have access to that!

Blog Posting about Kainan and his birthday

 will also be posting VERY soon with some of the art projects I'm working on for the new house.  Patrick bought me some canvases, stretchers, paint and whatnot today and I am SO excited to get started on those!!!  Yay for Pinterest ideas!

20 Things I want to Do By Our 20th Anniversary

Battle Scars (inspired by [ profile] aftondayslj post... and I'm amazed at how many things I kept remembering after I commented on her post!  I wonder how many things I'll think of throughout the day!:)

I made two kickstarter "final" videos. One of them is "Serious Business" and the other is more A.D.D./realistic/random. I'll be posting BOTH of them on the kickstarter page. We really want to get the feel of the show, specifically Bean.

If you or anyone you know would be interested in backing this project, you can send them to our kickstarter page TOMORROW!!! Yes!! Our kickstarter will be up tomorrow. I'm so excited:)

We're doin' Business here:

My old clean eating blog has had nearly 50,000 views and regularly gets around 3,000 views a month, even though I haven't updated it regularly for almost 9 months.

I'm going to start updating it again once a week for "Foodie Friday" since I keep getting requests. For at least the first month it'll be gluten free, since I'm dealing with that at the moment, and I think I'll do a video for them as well, since I now have a way to edit videos that I can use stress free.

My first "Bean" blog where I started with the puppet making process has 30 posts and 2,000 views.

Then, 6 weeks ago, I moved to and that blog has gotten a little over 1,200 views.

At the same time, I started Bean's Youtube Channel, and that just passed 1,00 views too.

Which made me go look at my personal youtube (mrsbyn) and that one has gotten over 25,000 VIEWS! Wow!!

I know these stats are nothing compared to a LOT of big youtubers/bloggers, but I'm still happy with it. I feel like I'm doing a good job, and it feels good that people are enjoying it. I'm going to make it on the Ellen show yet!

And, I've decided that I like the idea of becoming famous as a puppet. Then I never have to worry about getting older if I don't want to:)

Oh, and Paris rocks, too! She's only got 11 videos on her own channel thus far and she has hit 1,000 views too!!

Paris is PMSing hardcore today. Not with a bad attitude or anything, but she wants chocolate BAD. She was on Pinterest and kept finding things to make... and of course our cupboards are BARE. We're missing at least one, if not most of the ingredients to make ANYTHING.

I finally told her that if she made a blog post about it and posted it before Patrick left for work, then he could stop and get it on the way home (because we have no car, and how many PMSing women want to walk 3 1/2 miles for chocolate if they don't have to?)

Lol. This is cracking me up!

Patrick and I are trying to make our kickstarter proposal video, but so far all we have is a blooper reel:

He and I have differing opinions on what it should look like, so we're trying to morph our ideas and opinions... its really really hard to get it right in one take, but editing it with a separate sound track is really REALLY hard. Ironically enough, we just don't even have good enough equipment to make a video asking for funding. Yes, that is part of the point... but another thing that Patrick and I disagree on.

I'm tired of thinking about it now, though, so I'm going to go upload stuff to the properly spelled youtube channel. Yeah, I noticed after 35 videos and nearly 1000 upload views that there was a typo in the original channel name. *sigh*

Tomorrow I'm starting my personal story about our family's acting/theater/film journey thus far.

When I started journaling about this, it seemed to me like we have been doing this forEVER. It wasn't until I started writing that I realized we never did anything theatrically as adults or as a family before that moment in 2005 when we auditioned for our first play! Crazy!! Its a 10 part series and I'm not sure how to exactly schedule it on my blog, but part one will be there, bright and early tomorrow at If you haven't known me on LJ since then, you may find it interesting.

Plus there are awesome cute pics of me (with longish dark hair, even!), Patrick and the kids 7 years younger:)\

Patrick is working hard on music and I'm trying to write lyrics. We will have some new original music next week!!

My dad arrived yesterday with a bunch of frames from my mom that are SO awesome.

He also gave us our Christmas money, so I was able t buy the rest of the stuff for painting the set.

AND MY PUPPET MAKING STUFF CAME IN!!! I literally screamed in the car when I saw the UPS truck getting ready to turn down our street:) I got started, and I'll be posting about it on my blog and a few pictures are on the facebook fan page as well.
