Read-a-thon Hours: 21-22

UPDATE FOR HOURS 21&22

Pages: ZERO (spent the last two hours cheering/dancing/tweeting)
Time: ZERO minutes

TOTALS:
845 pages read
701 minutes reading
140 minutes blogging (includes twitter)
345 minutes cheerleading
17 mini-challenges
288+ comments (stopped counting when I stopped reading)
2 caffeine beverage

Ok, here's the deal. I'm taking this video down as soon as the readathon ends--so get your fill of my highly embarrassing video now. This will most likely be my last vlog of the night. :) Edited: Video has been taken down. You'll have to wait until April for more embarrassing Trish vlogs.

And no Mountain Dews were harmed (or actually imbibed) in the making (and that banging noise is me running into a paperbag). The song is Somewhere After Midnight, which you can listen to on the Youtube video below. Sorry it's such a crummy video, but I love the song... Get up and dance to it!

Trish,

Your Mom and I got such a kick out of you before falling asleep last night, and you put a huge smile on my face this morning. Thanks so much for bringing such joy to our lives. We love you so much!

Kate said...

Hi Trini,

Congratulations on finishing the read-a-thon. Your videos and postings were great! I also loved hearing from you via text.... especially at 2:00 am! Had to turn my phone off after that, and felt guilty leaving you out there while I blissfully slept. But alas, you are probably deep in slumber now. I am proud of you. You're fun, funny, and really well-read!
Love, Mom xoxoxo

I was going to say, like everybody else, how cute and fun you are, until I read Kate's comments - they brought tears to my eyes! How sweet. You are very blessed to have a mom (and Jim) like that!

Lisa said...
