12 Things

Hi guys! Today I wanted to do a 12 Things post! I’m not sure if this is a known series or if Amber Fillerup is the only one who has done it but I love reading these posts! You basically just… write 12 things hahaha. I also want to start doing Friday Favorites and sharing some of my fav items each week! I’ve been trying to think of some series ideas I can do on the blog! Let me know if you guys have anything specific that you want to see!

  1. My Bali Travel Diary is up today! I’m really excited that I could put something together with the footage we got cause I thought for sure that we didn’t get enough to make anything!
  2. We have been up at my mom’s house for a week. She got a surgery last week so we have been up here helping with things like picking up kids. I vlogged a little bit about the surgery and i’m planning on doing a mini Q&A with her about it on Friday’s vlog!
  3. Parker and I are planning on doing an online video workshop and we just booked a trip to Portland so we can shoot there for the workshop. As we get more into planning this all out I am starting to get so stressed about it! It’s so much work and we want it to be PERFECT for you guys! I’m not sure when we are going to launch it but we are going to try and have it out sometime in November.
  4. My little sister got her permit! I don’t understand how she is 15… I swear she’s like 9.
  5. I have been wearing this sweater jacket thing nonstop since I have been up in Salt Lake. It’s so comfy I need to wear it. Every second. Of Every day.
  6. The room we sleep in at my mom’s house has no windows and it has been SO hard to wake up in the morning at a decent time. Normally at home our room is super bright at like 7 am so am up by 7:30 with no alarm but here I will not set an alarm and wake up at 10… We came here right after we got back from Bali so our sleep schedule was off anyways and now it’s still not back to normal!
  7. My grandma made the BEST soup for dinner last night. I will find a recipe and link it here. It was broccoli and potato and it was vegan too! SO good.
  8. I’m going to New York next week! Just for fun, with Parker and Lauren and one of her friends. I don’t think i’ve ever been to the city just for fun! I’ve always had some type of event or work thing to be there for. I have been LOVING New York lately and am so excited to be there again. I think it’s my 4th time in 3 months!
  9. I got a notification on Facebook the other day from a post 3 years ago about me dyeing my hair blonde! I don’t even remember having brown hair! I rewatched the vlog about it, I was very obnoxious in 2014 hahaha.
  10. Our 2 year wedding anniversary is in 18 days! We were going to go to Puerto Rico but with the hurricanes we postponed our trip.
  11. Every morning for breakfast I eat oatmeal with strawberries and peanutbutter. It’s SO good. I used to just put honey on my oatmeal but this is way better.
  12. I planned my halloween videos yesterday and ordered the stuff I need and I am so excited to shoot them! I am doing DIY Couples Costumes and Cheap vs Expensive Costumes.

Happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend!!

    You’re visiting Portland?!? I live in the area…it’s always so fun to see bloggers visit. When are you traveling here? I’m so excited to see the content you’ll create! It’s absolutely gorgeous! And Portland’s vibe is nowhere I have ever been before. It’s such a fun, quirky, and weird city! If you have time, you should also visit Seattle too :)

    Happy soon anniversary, Aspyn and Parker! I have seen this “12 things” post everywhere online so I’m not quite sure who started it! I do love Amber’s though. Can’t believe your sister is going to be on the road soon! That’s nerve-wrecking. Siblings grow up too fast! Best of luck to her.

    So sad you don’t get to go to Puerto Rico! Have you been before, it is absolutely gorgeous!! We the pretty island heals you have to go to Culebra and Rincon!!
    I do a “weekend links” on my blog and it always seems to be like a reader favorite – so I think your Friday Favorites would go over super well!

    I am so excited that you’re coming to Portland! I’ve lived here forever and I would never want to leave! You have to go to the Saturday Market and visit the Rose Garden! There’s so much to do and see, you’ll never get bored! I really hope you vlog a lot, it’s so fun to see what other people think about our city ? we have such great hikes too. You’ll have so much fun! Love you guys!

    Your online video workshop sounds super cool, I can’t wait for it to come out! I really loved your Bali travel diary, you’re so good at them!

    I remember when I watched your vlog and you dyed your hair I was like: wow, it looks so weird on her. But now I can’t imagine you with any other hair colour, it looks so good on you! I’m really looking forward to watching your Halloween videos, I love the way your channel is going :)

    love from Germany,

    I can’t believe you dyed your hair three years ago! I started watching your vlogs around that time. So fun to watch you accomplish so much in that time. Have a great time in New York!

    i love this post idea ❤️

    Those pictures of you and Parker are so cute! You guys always take the BEST a couple photos! & I remember watching the vlog when you dyed your hair when you posted it, I can’t believe it’s been so long. Time passes by so fast!

    2 year annivesrary!? Where has the time gone! I’m still waiting for my bf to pop the question lol. And are you a natural brunette? I’ve always thought of you as a blonde. Now that you mention it though, I do remember your makeup tutorials of you being a brunette and talking about cheer.

  21. October 9, 2017 / 12:10 pm

    I am obsessed with oatmeal, peanut butter and strawberries. Its so yummy!

  22. October 9, 2017 / 3:10 pm

    It would be so awesome if you did a meet up in Portland! I live in a suburb about 15-20 minutes away from the city. I’ve been a subscriber forever (I think you had 500 or less when I followed??) so I would totally go :)

  23. October 10, 2017 / 5:13 am

    I love this idea of 12 things! Love your pictures and blog.

  24. October 10, 2017 / 10:46 pm

  25. October 11, 2017 / 10:08 am

    You’re absolutely adorable and such an inspiration for my blog! I really love your theme and want to invest in it! What theme do you use from pipdig?

  26. October 12, 2017 / 10:12 am

    I am so happy for you.
    You seems so happy and it seems like everything going just great in your life and CONGRATULATIONS Aspyn and Parker.
    Been following your journey since 3 years now.
    You are such an Idol for me and you are so beautiful from inside and out.

    Yes, I would love to know what camera you are using! It this an automatic shot or do you do a lot of color editing?

  29. October 23, 2017 / 12:41 pm

    I love this post idea!!! Your blog always inspires me :))

  30. December 5, 2017 / 6:52 am

    I love this idea! I feel like mine would turn into a kind of cute little diary to look back on remember what I was thinking at the time. I try to make lists similar to this for my blog posts but I usually list 12 things (for example) about the subject I’m talking about. A few months ago I went camping and so I listed 12 things about the trip. Would love to try your idea too though! http://www.emourly.com/
