Vlog: Best Blogging Week Ever Jan.10-14

l
 l
So we're just going to borrow an idea (we promise to put it back! gug gug gug) from VH1's Best Week Ever and start a vlog series called, Best Blogging Week Ever. A series wherein we round up our favorite moments of blogging for that week.

I mean, there is some drama in the blogging.

But this vlog didn't even get to the part of this week where Brooke White and I made-up using the hugely public space of Twitter. That was pretty sweet.

And a funny correspondence from the Pioneer Woman (but let's just call her Ree).

And am I name dropping?

(My sister is Nie Nie.)

(Here's proof. I am even on her blog today.)

And my Des News column debuted at numero uno on their Most Popular spot. THANKS TO YOU GUYS!

And then a DN reader commented, "And what did we do to deserve this?"

But we laughed all day about that one.

Because what can you do when there is drama in the blogging?




Ok, C. Jane shut the trap and roll the vlog:


Thanks for an exceptional week.
I hope you know, I like you.







St. George Readers! Are you coming to the Reading next Thursday, January 20th at the Washington City Community Center, 7:00pm with me, Suzanne and Haley? If you are coming and you'd like to share a blog post of yours to read to the group, will you email us a link to your post? We want to know how many readings we can plan on...and if there are any we need to censor. Just kidding. Or am I? cjanemail @ gmail .com.

Oh and did you want to see a photo of Haley and me caught up in a snuggle?
Clicky here-y.

Also, I hear everyone is pretty picky about their dessert offerings (rocky road ice cream will already be there) so if you'd like to bring something to share, we'd love it. It's a gathering, a real gathering!




Dear C. Jane:
Chup reviews a toy that has a camera attached to it--oh I don't know--see for yourself.


C. Jane's Guide to Provo:
Exclusive, I am getting real with you.





I am C. Jane Kendrick and now that I think about it, my title could use some work. You can contact me personally at cjanemail @ gmail.com or leave comments on my facebook page and if you are on twitter you can find my tweets here. But no pressure.

I love your comment about Australia. I live in New Zealand (below aussie). If you are ever in my neck of the woods I would love to meet you and your brood =)
Really enjoy your blog

Anonymous said...

I, too, am down south (no...really down south). Loved the vlog. Hilarious to hear you both chatting.

Cheers,
Jane (Australia)

Johanna said...

oh and just to add to my previous comment, the exercises at the end there were great, I laughed so hard I almost peed a little. Bless ya guys

sarah said...

Hey C.jane.
I just wanted to add my tiny lil bit of feedback.
You brighten my day, you make me smile a lil, when stuff is not so good, and laugh out loud when things are good. You remind me I have things pretty good. I am not a morman, nor in anyway a believer, but I believe in you. Keep doing what your doing. You remind me that the writer in me is true, and that I can do great things.
Thankyou.

Sarah
ps. You inspire me so, can you inspire my punctuation and grammer?????

Lizzy said...

thank you for the middle-of-the-night-can't-sleep-because-of-large-pregnant-belly entertainment, now it is for sure the best blogging week ever!

Naomi Miles said...

Oh how I am looking forward to these once a week vlogs, this one was hillarious!

Kate said...

You two rock. Thank you for brightening up my rainy Friday morning! xx

This Girl loves to Talk said...

after all those australia comments you're just gonna have to visit... Oprah was just here and it was a big thing.. I think we could do better for a Courtney visit?? no?

That vlog was better than your last one I just gotta say. I was laughing.

Now no more comments from me. I've been commenting over on your facebook and here. It's because we are housebound cause of the terrible floods in Brisbane Australia. So thanks for keeping me entertained while I've been stuck at home for four days straight.....

Butlers said...

OH honey! Your VLOGS are the bestest!

Butlers said...

Ps- I went to bed and thought again about the vlog post. Don't you feel it was a tinge bit mean spirited to poke fun at the persons comments about your need to exercise? I felt embarrassed for her. I mean...you put her on blast for all to make fun of.
Christ like sista.....christ like.
Isn't that what we strive for? Not popularity?

Debra said...

loved the vlog
I learnt that u say chup ...
funny

who knew ? have been pronouncing it to rhyme with cup

debs (australia loves u back)

Cassie said...

That was really funny.

Wendy McDonagh-Valentine said...

Thanks for the morning chuckle!! You handled that anonymous person's comments perfectly!! :)

Girl...
Now THAT was hysterical.

Robin said...

So funny...you brightened my day. Please keep doing this!

Kalen said...

Hilarious. I love the dynamic between you and your husband. And I love when you do push-ups at the end. You guys are complete nerds and it's wonderful & endearing in every way.

Sarita said...

Lol! I'm close to having tears running down my face. At work. Not a good combination. Unless you are a dramatic actress, which I am not. I'm a teacher, so I guess in some ways I am a dramatic actress.
Anyway, I don't think I realized until this minute how snarky you are. I love it with all my heart! <3

Meg said...

I love you Courtney! You are funny, inspirational and genuinely BEAUTIFUL, on the inside AND out!

Reenie said...

You guys are too cute!!! <3

Q: how much do I love your lisp?

A: a lot.

The Renee Chronicles said...

I can't stop laughing!
xo

Ms.Carson said...

You two are very funny. Thanks for the morning giggle!

Amanda said...

Love.

OK - weekly vlog? Can I request that? You and Chup totally brightened my Friday morning.

Christina said...

So cute and funny! I liked the "I took the job because we need the money. No, we're really rich". LOL

Now I want ice cream. Is 8:45am too early for ice cream?

And BOO to the haters.

AMR said...

That video was hilarious. Thanks for sharing. You guys are great on camera!

Anonymous said...

That. Was. Stupendous. Normally I eschew anything vlog related on the webs (yes even cute cat videos, its true!) but I can't resist me a lil Chup-a-C-jane humor, and boy was it worth it (it was worth it last time when Chup was "sick" too!). You two are full of mutual married spice in those golden hours after the kids have gone to bed. Thanks for sharing with us and starting my day with a laugh. Also I saw that first comment on your paper article and I know technically it was an insult, but doesn't it make you laugh? Short, snappy, melodramatic...it made me giggle when I saw it.

Mortons Love said...

Here's the problem with this vlog...It makes me miss your face. Any by your face, I mean you. Am I making any sense here?

I'm coming to visit next time I'm in town. You can't hide from me.

Lisa said...

My daughters & I always crack up...when someone says..."oh girl ..you're not fat...you're just big BONED-ED!"...
We think..."great...how are we going to reduce our bone size?"

Mandy said...

I've been reading for a while and never comment...loved the vlog...you are both witty and entertaining. The exercising bit was histarical...I mean really, if we are already uncomfortable with our body image and trying to improve it the last thing we want is some one else's 2 cents about what we should be doing. Keep the vlogs coming!

troy and melani said...

I really love reading your blog. It gives me a smile as I start my day! Thank you! You are amazing..and I LOVE LOVE LOVE your parents! I met them out here in Illinois...yes we are next to Missouri! Your vlog is hilarious!

Heather KA said...

LOVED THIS! please do it every week!!! i laughed out loud at my desk at work this morning :) good job chup as well haha (and i'm glad y'all said it out loud, because i wasn't sure how it was pronounced.

p.s. my friends and i want you to visit greenville, sc...i'll write you an email on all the wonderful reasons why!

The Bostock Fam said...

That was amazing! I love it! period

Jacki said...

You need your own talk show. You and Chup. Like a Marie and Donny gig- without the outfits. Ok, maybe more like Good things Utah with a man- I'd love to hear your commentary on the random things of life. Ok, so you do that already on here...but it's fun to watch.

Bless your heart, that was hilarious.

Evensen said...

Love the vlog - I want to be you when I grow up! ... I also want to be a scoop of rocky road in a bowl of vanilla ice cream! You guys are awesome.
Nathalie

Melanie said...

Great post! Not going to lie, the end DID look a little wrong, but still funny! :)

Tana said...

I loved this! You two looked more comfortable with the vlog thing this time. You crack me up! Thanks for getting my Friday started right. (Okay, right probably would have included scriptures, which I now don't have time for, but at least you made me laugh!)

Debbie said...

OK, you and Chup are awesome. Seriously so great at playing off each other--watch out Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon...well, if they were still around...but really, you two need your own show. Love it!

Allyson & Jere said...

Ok, not gonna lie...usually I don't love vlogs, they can be somewhat awkward. HOWEVER....I may have peed my pants during Chups "dramatic" reading and your hysterical, no really, HYSTERICAL exercise section. Seriously, DYING over here! THANK YOU for posting that, and for having such a sense of humor about it all.
Also, loved your sarcastic comments about the column for D News (totes just shortened that, thank me later) and how "rich" you are. ::snort::
This may be the BEST vlog EVER!

Molly said...

I also avoid vlogs, but I wanted to watch this one because I have a few minutes this morning, and I used to what best week ever all. the. time.
My favorite part: watching you and Chup together. I love how you write about him and your marriage, so it was really sweet to see you all talk to each other as well. That's all, I just thought it was sweet.

al said...

I could just eat you up! (Because you're ice cream, remember?)

But then I'd have to do 100 crunches, and I hate exercising.

Allyson & Jere said...

And after reading your comments here....ummmm is Butlers serious? Please tell me she's NOT serious and I just read it wrong. Did she really just chastise you for making light of being talked down to on your own blog? Wow, some people really need to lighten up in life. Makes me heart hurt that people like that take life so seriously. 'Cause really, if you don't do porny exercise moves ever again, I'll be totaly sad. AND I shall furthermore completely expect updates on how you're doing with reps, weights, etc. and if you're accomplishing those crunches "while ON.THE.PHONE" and such. You'll thank ME later for keeping you accountable!

JJB said...

you guys make me laugh. let's hope next week is even better!

Julie said...

I think I love you more.
(Chup, too.)

Petie said...

Love, Love, Love the video. Keep them coming!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Oh my gosh, that was so cute and funny!

I know you are just sooo rich that you live in a mansion and just use the retro house as a studio for blogging and vlogging and parties in the green room!

I just enjoy C.Jane and I really don't care how much money you have or don't have. But thats just me.

Looking forward to the next vlogging segment! Have a great weekend.

Staci said...

I loved the Vlog, hilarious! I think you two should get in touch with Christopher Guest and star in an upcoming film!

Jamie said...

I can't stop giggling over this video, best Vlog video ever!!

thedomesticfringe said...

That was blogtastic! Where did you get the headband, because I need one?

Thanks for making me laugh first thing in the morning. Keep up the good work of lifting potatoes. I just started a diet yesterday. I'm doing very well with it (because it's only been 24 hrs), but I'm sure I should add potato lifting to my list of things 'to do' everyday.

Vlog on!
-FringeGirl

Bre said...

Oh, I needed a laugh today. Thank you for that. You are so witty and I enjoyed hearing from both of you! Keep going!

Kadi said...

better than regis and kelly. love, love it.

The Leak said...

I'm pretty dumbfounded for two reasons:
1. That someone would have the juevos to say such silly things to someone who didn't ask or need it for that matter.
2. That you can make light of it. That is why you are what you are.
With success comes a target on your back, and might I add your target looks lovely on you.
Keep it up.
P.s. Can I do a guest post on your blog to all the haters?

madsta said...

This is the best thing I have ever seen in my life- 'cept I don't have anything really cool or enlightning to say, just keep doing those reps, maybe you'll wear a hole in your floor and one day you might make it all the way to china, and you might have lost those ten pounds by then!

Larkin said...

I loved your vlog -- especially since, as a speech therapist, I have been curious to hear you lisp :) The lisp wasn't that bad, just as endearing as you are!

Erica said...

Oh my word (I never comment) you crack me up! Best Idea Ever! Can't wait for more vlogs..you and Chup are hilariously awesome. As a woman who struggles w/ body image, you make me want to love myself as is (oh and I work out and eat healthy and I'm still "overweight" sometimes overweight isn't always unhealthy and skinny isn't always healthy)stay awesome.

Angie (Drowns) Kelly said...

Oh my!! Will you please come visit Hillsborough, NC (are you serious about coming to different places b/c if you are I will have to send you a convincing email)...we could stay up and laugh all night! And have rocky road ice cream! Whew. Laughing is WAY more fun than crunches! Plus I am sure we will laugh enough to negate the calories from the ic, which won't even count because we are having fun. Isn't that right?

springrose said...

I have to say I absolutely LOOOOVVVEEE it when you and Chup get together and do a VLOG, even if you might get a little pornographic! tehe I absolutley love you, you are honest maybe even to a fault. But it is always about yourself, so all those downer people can just go take a second look in the mirror and see if there is some self improvment needed. As for you my dear, you are constantly changing, for the better, I hope we all are.
On a side note, I was watching the Joseph Smith move that came out on DVD my friend gave us for Christmas last night and all of a sudden there was Chup on my TV screen! I yelled, yep I did, That is CJANES CHUP!!!! My husband even came over to check it out. WOW, I feel so special now! LOVE you guys, you always cheer me up. I think you should do a weekly VLOG just so we can hear your voice and see you and Chup interact. It's great.

Baldwin's in Utah said...

Seriously you are hilarious! I think we should be BFF's! You are awesome! Thanks for your vlog! It totally made my morning 100% better! I even blogged about you! (I think you can click my name and then jump to my family blog. You're that awesome!

Veronica C. said...

That's C. Jane :1
Comment Downer: 0

And did I catch a "my heck" in there?

do you ever wish you weren't living in Utah?

Julie said...

Oh my gosh, Courtney, you and Chup are hysterically funny! I just watched your vlog at my desk at work and laughed so hard I snorted. I will look forward to every one of your vlogs!!

Amber Jessica said...

You two are so cute! Loved it!

Leah K said...

Oh my goodness, I rarely comment on blogs but you two are so dang cute on the vlogs! Courtney, you are so adorable and funny. Whoever the spotlighted commenter was can kiss it, because you rock!

cari said...

Amazing.

Katie said...

I've never commented before but I just want to say, I like you guys.

Tori said...

Loved it!! You totally crack me up.

Ava said...

You do not look tiny next to Chup, ya big cow! Fewer videos, please.

Shari said...

OH.MY.GOSH!! Tears in my eyes laughing.

Please keep vlogging.

Leslie Ruth Petree said...

A.) I can pretty much guarantee that I will watch this video 3-5 more times today. Why 3-5? I don't know, it just sounds like the right amount of times that will get me through the day.

B.) Hate to tell you this C. Jane, but yes, it did look and pornographic. And yes, it was still HIGH-LARIOUS!

C.) Adorable. Both of you.

D.) My husband and I were HUGE fans of VH1's Best Week Ever, so it only makes sense that I would be a fan of this. Hooray for weekly vlogs!

E. {My, this list is long}. I'm off to watch the video again while I make Ree's cinnamon rolls. See? I'm totally on a first name basis with her, too. Which means we should be besties. Shall I send you a pan?

F. Loved that headband. Outstanding.

G. Ok, now I'm done. Happy weekend!

Anonymous said...

I love it when you guys make vlogs, but your darling husband seems bored. :)

Jerilee E. said...

oh, this just made my day! I had to get up before SEVEN this morning, so you know I needed a good laugh ;).

Until such time... said...

Oh my gosh. That was hilarious!

Addie Gaylord said...

my sister is the leak above me, up there. how cute huh?
why do people "torture" themselves so much and force themselves to read/watch your blog and then take the time leave a nasty comment (ava, hello that was mean and uncalled for you). i can't stand mean people, especially those who go out of there way to be rude. anyway, your vlog rocked. i laughed really loud while my three year old looked at me confused about why is mom is turning into that crazy lady from nacho?? love you and your blog/vlog.
toodles!!!
ava have a wonderful day!!!!

Stefanie H said...

You are so hilarious. Lets be friends. Ok? Ok.

Julie said...

I may have just peed a little.

jeanne said...

Ut oh. Can I say all this without the hate, please.

Move More Eat Less (MMEL) is a doable project by Cathy Zielske.

http://cathyzielske.typepad.com/my_weblog/2010/12/move-more-eat-less-2011an-invitation-to-you.html

The basics are so simple. A couple of my friends and I are doing it because it makes us feel better . . . healthier.

One of Cathy's readers jump started her by telling her: "Enough with the whining already! Why don't you DO something?"

I know you're not whining and I would hate to think the original poster was goading you. Not nice. I'm hoping she was just offering an option.

And, your vlog is seriously funny.

I'm AE Jones said...

Oh heavens, do you have any idea how much I love you, your blog and your relationship with your man!? You make my day everytime I read/ watch. (Loved the vlog!) You're honest - you're straightforward - you're happy with yourself... great example. THANK YOU FOR BLOGGING!

Nan said...

That is the dose of Courtney I love!! Hilarious!

Trent and Meg said...

Oh my goodness...that was so awesome. I'm laughing out loud in my office, and my cub neighbor is like "Megan, what's going on!?!!" That was good. My favorite was the dramatic read. We need to do that every week if possible :)

Holly said...

After 6 hours of Sacrament Meeting talk preparation (I know, that is a whole different issue) I needed a good laugh. Here's me...all by my self...laughing.
Thanks- BTW great DN piece!

carlee said...

I love when the two of you do a recording. Cracks me up every time :) Please do more!

kathynboys said...

LOVE your VLOG! Your humor just toally cracks me up and it's even better to watch & hear it than just reading it. Keep 'em coming!

Jessica said...

LOL. Love it!

Kelly Jean said...

Hahaha!! Wow, that video was awesome. I wish I knew you guys in real life. Love your sense of humor. I hope my hub & I can be as cool as you someday. :)

Malia said...

So, I just have one question. Does the Utah inversion cover your house? Somehow I'm guessing it doesn't because that vlog was the most sunshine I have seen in really, REALLY long time. I literally laughed out loud. Sunshine during an inversion - can't get better than that! Thank you. I SO needed this.

a consummate generalist said...

When are you guys going to get your own show? You NEED your own show. Maybe on Oprah's new network. Oprah? Oprah?

daisy said...

I was watching Julie & Julia (the Movie) the other night and Julie said something about her blog and her readers that they were connected to her in some way and that if she didn't write...they would be upset. I quickly thought of you and how true that is. I look forward to your posts everyday and if YOU didn't write I would really be upset...

BrendaSue said...

Your VLOG (is that correct?) made my morning!! I am also trying to follow Anonymous's or es advice and "eat less, move more" this week so my evenings now include Family Time at the PG Rec Center. It's actually fun (um, sometimes) working out with my 11 yr old daughter. She is a great motivator so here's MY advice -- Just have Ever work out with you! ha ha ;-) Have another great week!

Anonymous said...

Lol! I think my mother has been sending you the anonymous advice. Work it girl, work those arms until they look like bananas, err... whatever. Very funny VLOG!

M Occasionally B said...

good stuff right there!

Emily Wilde said...

Holy canoly, thanks for your VLOG !!!! That was sensational. And just so you know, your sit-up series slash push up party had the potential to appear pornographic (hahaha)... however your use of fruits and vegetables earlier in the video helped keep it PG-13. I'm not sure how, just go with it.

TyLeen said...

Oh my gosh! I have been reading your blog for a couple years now, I don't miss a day...and am sad when I don't see a new one! Anyway, we could totally be friends. I read your blog, watch your vlogs and know that we must have known each other in another life! You are so funny. I would love to just be around you and your family for a day. The energy you put off...you should bottle it up and sell it...you could be rich...or richer. (is that a word) Love it and love you. Thanks!

Chelsey said...

That was awesome, I think you need to do a daily vlog :)

I also loved your exercises even though they might have looked a little pornographic lol. Too funny.

Beth said...

I am still laughing!! Thanks for making my day, you are so great and I wish I had a friend like you to come over and just hang out with. I'm out of bananas, but I have some pears we could work out with!

Pamela said...

As a fellow Mormon woman, I have measured you up to be seriously charming, hilarious, and lovely! Love your blog!

Joann Mannix said...

CJane, rare commenter, but faithful reader, here. I have no insight or deep comments today. I just want to say I think you're scrumptiously adorable. You make me smile constantly and I love your glorious sense of self. From one newspaper columnist to another, keep on rockin' with your bad self and your faboosh headpiece. You are the best!

Jen said...

I call for more Vlogs! I do. I do.

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

I always love your vlogs! :)

debsglassonion said...

heheheh, loved it!! can't wait to meet you next week!!

thecoolestwifeever said...

LMFAO!!! This was indeed an awesome vlog!

sweetpomegranate said...

love the idea about wearing a sparkly headband to work out. i think that alone might be the motivation i need to get moving! thanks for the laugh! you are too cute!

ps -- the favorite compliment i have ever received was when i was living in Jersey and one of my yoga students told me i was like "a butterfly in an oilslick" (kinda like the rocky road, right?)

Anonymous said...

LOVE the vlog, so hilarious. The dramatic reading sent me over the edge. I am representing for the nice anonymous commenters everywhere.

P.S. After reading some of the comments on your body image post I have to agree that the sterotype is true. I don't know how you deal with the comments, it sent ME running for the hills and it wasn't my post!

Tiffany Fackrell said...

I literally laughed out loud!!! soo soo funny! my favorite was Chup in the background acting like he was totally interested...ha!!

Amy said...

love love it!!! so funny....
Thanks for the giggles

Brooke said...

This was pretty much awesome...

Raquel said...

that was hilarious! anyone ever tell you you resemble drew barrymore? not just in your looks, but also in your expressions and your voice. that's a compliment! well done and looking forward to more! xo raquel

ps- i almost died when you brought out the potatoes.

Lee said...

I watched this with my three year old daughter on my lap eating potato straws (heard of them?? They are great! The bbq is my fav!) and she was luaghing and food was flying out of her mouth.

Leslie Jam said...

Love you Court-you still make me smile. Wish I could see you more often or run into you at Target. :)

Leslie James

p.s. my word verification is lipsing sort of fitting with your love of singing n'est c'est pas?

Kristin said...

So funny, loved it. The push ups did look pornographic...which made me laugh harder.

Charity Bass Mauai said...

Well I loved it. Thanks for helping me smile today. It's been a rough week!

Sara.L.Carter said...

Dear cjane,

I am a long time reader and first time poster, I just wanted to say thank you to you and Chup for the video. I just got out of a super crummy meeting and watched your video- it turned my frown upside down thank you!

Kath said...

So...now we must audition our comments to be worthy of the Vlog...the pressure, the pressure.
And Johanna...there is surgery that can help that:)

Anonymous said...

the dramatic reading complete with the prescribed exercise routine may have been one of the funniest things i've ever seen! did you look pornographic? YES! which made it ten times funnier! good on you for taking the high road with nasty comments. i can't say i'd do the same. LOVE ME SOME C. JANE!

Trish said...

I am kind of a vlog hater and pretty much refuse to watch them because, you know, I'm here for the words, right? But I decided to watch your vlog--something about the yellowness of your living room drew me in--and guess what? I laughed in my low calorie green smoothie! You are funny, C. Jane. And your husband, too. Thanks for that today!

Taya said...

C-Jane... I hate the haters!!! Your post on body image was not only something we woman need to hear, but our daughters! I have a 14 year old daughter who is 5'10" and 150lbs... she is a gorgeous girl inside and out and I want her to have a good self image. She exercises, eats well, plays various sports, etc. and society is really making it harder and harder to teach this young women good body image. Thank you for that post! And, you and Chup are so great together and I know you two were meant to be. You compliment eachother to a "T"!!! LOVED the vlog... and the satire!!! Keep being the Rocky Road as we all need a little more of that these days!!! :)

The Moser Fam... said...

That just about made me wet my pants. You're a funny, funny girl...and Chup isn't so bad himself! HA!

Tara said...

Hilarious. I am so glad that someone informed you of the age old technique for weight loss. Eat less... move more. I'm certain you had never thought of that :).

I do admire you. I have 30 lbs. to loose myself {I am not saying you have 30 lbs. to loose. I have never met you and you look great in your pictures and videos...eventhough some of them are slightly pornographic-ha}. and I'm afraid I wouldn't be smiling while reading that anonymous comment.

I just started Weight Watchers and I have the greatest coach that wears outlandish outfits every week and keeps me pumped up about looking good. I've decided that is what I need, a cheerleader of sorts to follow me around daily and keep me pumped about eating healthy and exercising.

P.S.- Without a doubt if we were neighbors, we would be friends! I would probably be your favorite neighbor, don't you think :)????

Megan said...

I LOVE best blogging week ever!!!!!!!!!!!
Please bring it back every week

Funky Kim said...

Oh Courney! You make me almost want to move to Provo! But then I look at all my red apparel and realize I just wouldn't fit in.

Love you!

MissRissa said...

That was funny. Just so you know, my daughter came in while I was watching it and said "Who is that? She's pretty."

Rachel Teran said...

My name is Rachel, and I like YOU.

Rachel Teran said...

....but then I realize that I am down at the bottom of the comment list (well into the hundreds) and I begin to wonder, "Does she even read this far down? Do I even exist at all? Better yet, do any of us exist?"

Your blog brings deep, un-solved questions that change the course of humanity.

No, those are not just mere potatoes/bananas... those are paperweights on the paper of life, my friend. Yes, I went there.

Kristin Bishop said...

funniest thing I have ever watched hands down. Loved the ending. mr. or mrs. anonymous deserved it...and much more:)

hahahahha

tharker said...

Best Vlog ever! You two are hilarious! Please bring make this a weekly segment!

I laughed so loud during your exercises and Chup's dramatic reading, I scared my baby!

tharker said...

Yes, I said "bring make" No, I didn't mean to...but I'm going with it anyway.

Doty Family said...

Okay, you just convinced me to come to your little reading. I'll be there! That was the funniest thing ever. Like, hyperventilation and laughter! Oh my gosh. I gotta go watch it again!

Kristin said...

I don't have anything productive to say really, but I LOL'd for real.
Also I don't know if its just chups face or if he is just that brilliant of a comedian or what, but the fact that he looks like he is rolling his eyes at you and just humoring you the whole time totally made the whole thing.

ps. I didn't hear a lisp..?

Vesuvius At Home said...

Made of awesome.

Full of win.

Love to you.

Dearest Courtney. Do you read all these comments? I am the crazy woman that hugged you coming out of Costco the other day... You are cute and thanks for the hug! I think we need to be friends cause you are funny and I like to laugh AND my husband grew up in Oak Hills, so we have a connection! :)

So I want to give you my advice on being fat... given to me a few years ago by a friend when I made a comment about being fat. She told me that when you are having babies it isn't the time to be worrying about being skinny. When you are done having babies (which I am and I am sad about it-but I do have 7 :) then you will be able to lose it and keep it off and spend time concentrating on that stuff. My baby is 3 and I am where I want to be with my weight and it is pretty easy to maintain. SO enjoy your body the way it is, and enjoy your babies because they are VERY cute and look tiny next to Chup-I saw them in the shopping cart at Costco. :) HUGS!!! I will hug you again the next time I see you. :)

Alexa Mae said...

Oh, you are awesome. This is hilarious! All you are missing is the smart-a commenters that come in between clips. ;) Do this every week...or almost every week. Zee-best.

Erin said...

I saw this video four hours ago and I am still laughing. Thanks for always keeping things fresh!

lori@titleone.net said...

You are my sunshine. I loved the vlog. I love your supportive husband. I love how easy it is for you to talk to a camera and laugh off cruel people. You are who I try to aspire to.

Denise said...

You make me giggle. My sister and I would love to meet your sister and you-we just love you guys. Thanks for giving me a chuckle today.

Alexa Mae said...

Wait, wait, wait...I have to know...do you guys laugh as hard as us when you watch it for the first time? I would be ROFL. (rolling on the floor laughing.)

Em said...

I loooooved your best week ever vlog. You and Chup are hilarious and fabulous at the same time. I'm going to have to think up really clever comments so that I might be spotlighted on the vlog. Thank for being Cjane and Chup!

Katie Rich said...

Loved the potato weights. Good job having a sense of humor about rude comments.

Amy said...

Dear C Jane - my friend Meg and I stopped working to watch this video, and let me tell you... it was definitely worth it. I am still laughing - and that workout was priceless. PLEASE keep doing best week evers, it was amazingly funny.

Lauren said...

vilarious! i feel like we could be best friends and i want Chup to read me to sleep every night. his voice is so soothing, and dare i say, vexy?

christina said...

This was beyond entertaining.

Loved it!!

meleofa said...

So good, so good! I love your blog. :)

Minta said...

you're hilarious

Rebekah said...

I just laughed my pants off. Literally... ok not literally. but i laughed pretty hard.

Kim Neyer said...

Oh my gosh! Sooo funny!! And that anonymous commenter... BAHAHA. Right!

Can I be ice cream too? I would like to be a scoop of cake batter ice cream from coldstone creamery.

Brooke said...

It's so good to hear your voice! You're adorable. :)

Nichole and Jeremy said...

My roommates and I used to use cans of soup. If only we had known the key was Bananas and potatoes.

That was pretty funny. I love how you respond to the readers.

Kathy said...

You are HILARIOUS!

The High Family said...

You are a genius.

Freakin' HILARIOUS...you have tons of fans on the East Coast laughing! :)

Keep up the great work!

Shalee said...

You are copious amounts of AWESOMENESS!! Vlog was Hilarious. Please keep them coming

Shari said...

Just had to watch again. My 4 yr old was not amused but I laughed so hard!

Lucy said...

Really enjoyed the potatoes and bananas at the end. Super motivating. I'm doing toe curls as I type this. I could be down twenty pounds JUST by reading CJane!

Aimee said...

I've been reading this blog for a long time and have never commented, but I just have to tell you that vlog was full of awesome! Keep them coming :)

Anonymous said...

I am really glad you posted the vlog. I've often thought your writing seemed self-indulgent and honestly self-absorbed (I mean it is a blog, but still...) and I can tell in the video that you are truly a nice and genuine person with a big heart. I'm glad that got cleared up!

Emily said...

I think a vlog should be part of every week. I love watching you and Chup. It makes me wish I still lived at Wymount Village so I could possibly run into you in Provo. But my hubby graduated and we went to Grad school at that other school, you know the one with a U in it. Sorry!

I have been reading your blog for a while now, but I love the new changes, the body image things, can I say I feel just like too. Maybe I should do some crunches while I read your blog. Anyway, just wanted to give a shout-out and say I loved the vlog.

The Ruggs said...

I love LOVE LOVE you and your silly antics on camera. Can I just say that between your awesomeness and Nie's strength.....oh oh! And your selfless parents!! *ahem* I really really hope you're family can adopt me someday.

Just sayin!


But seriously though.

Shortcake and Company said...

Oh.my.goodness (yes, I must be a Mormon if I used that phrase). I love, love, LOVE the vlog. I laughed out loud. A lot. Please, keeping vlogging becuase I doubt I'll ever be so lucky to meet you in person and I need a good giggle every week.

J to the Nessa said...

Um... that did get a little porno inspired but I was laughing so hard I cried, so well done! So funny.

Lindsey said...

K- so, Can you tell us how you and brooke made up, and what you talked about with REE??? This name dropping is killing me. Give up the goods girl.

February Jill said...

Dear goodness, you are a good writer but you and Chup on camera together are like a comedy duo. More of that please.

Trisha said...

So glad you will be doing a vlog every week. I just can't get enough C Jane videos!

Becki said...

The vlog was great, but could we look forward to a CJane Workout Video in the near future? Mayhaps, narrated by El Chup?
Seriously, I laughed so hard. Ab workout extraordinaire. Ima go eat some Ho-Hos!

Scarlett Gone Mad said...

Dear C. Jane:

I adore your blog (like whoa). I find your honesty, wit and endearing stories so inspiring and captivating. Thank you for sharing when it's funny and when it's hard :-)

And as a fellow woman who has body issues, too, there's one word that's been put on my heart the last month or so and that is "embrace".

I embrace the body that sustains me, that allows me a little extra cushion when I do prop falls for a laugh at work. I embrace the traits I have been given (good and bad), because I'm supposed to have them, just as I'm supposed to have this body. And I embrace my family, my job and the dreams to start a family of my own someday. Embracing has been part of my path to peace and acceptance :-)

I hope you keep embracing it, too! You are wonderful and you should keep on owning it, girl!

Anonymous said...

I. Love. The. Vlog. Can you and Chup just...adopt me? :)
---Nix

Sell...Party Of 4 said...

really I don't think that any vlog is better than yours...

you two slay me.

Kristin said...

yay! I love when you actually talk to us! And I totally agree with the rocky road commenter you spoke of. TOTALLY. And

hahahahah that part doing the exercises. You're awesome. Keep rockin'

Kristin

Jessica said...

Love the VLOG you guys crack me up! Cant wait for more!!

Nancy said...

I would readily exchange any time watching a TV show to watch you two on your vlog. Truly. Hysterical. Thanks for brightening 5:54 of my day. :)

Traci said...

I. Love. You. Sooooooo funny :)

Anonymous said...

love it so much! and you have the sweetest husband...i know mine would never do that with me. it's obvious how much he loves you!

lindsay said...

You are the turtle in my turtle-pecan cluster blizzard(from DQ)!! (The turtle is the best part...) Thanks for the laughs!

mrs. r said...

hysterical!

do NOT lose 5, 10, 20 lbs. i love every inch of you! the more hilarity to love!

you're a rockstar and CHUP makes me laugh hysterically!

this. made. my. day.

Non-Mommy said...

I've been a silent fan for some time, but this video seals the deal - I have a new favorite blog! You are hilarious in writing, but now listening to you both, and laughing along with you makes you even funnier. I love it!

You're an inspiration to me regardless of what you, or others, think about your body.

Smileyisles said...

um, yeah, that was totally pornographic, especially when you threw in the sound effects at the end. e-gad!

Carolyn said...

I can't get enough of the blog to begin with, and now this vlog. I'm always so inspired by your enthusiasm and moxie. Thank you for this. It was awesomeness.

Julie said...

That vlog was Hil-ar-ious. Seriously. You two made my day. Love it!

Sidney said...

LOOOOOOOVE.
just kidding...we're really rich.
bwa ha ha ha ha!!!

adore your type of humor!
muah.

Bessiemae said...

That was stinking hilarious. PLEASE do more of those!

marialuigi said...

Do you have an ETSY shop with those ergonomic banana-dumbbells for sale? I need at least two. (You TOTALLY should have included a link somewhere!)

Oh...and, will you autograph them, please? (And, if you could get Mindy Gledhill to autograph them as well, I'll pay extra.) Also, I'd like them wrapped in the Deseret News...the page with your article on it.

Thank you.

P.S. One last thing...a little note from Chup letting me know how many reps I need to do would be very helpful. He can sign that if he wants.

VLOG=Fabulous! You are both delightful!

kristen said...

um best friday vlog ever! and as i write this i am already 1 crunch down and only 99 more to go! is that how it works?
also, i hope i have some fruit weights in the house... well better get moving, these abs aren't gonna crunch themselves.

Alison said...

I, like Johanna of the 1st comment, am from NZ. And by golly you have a free place to stay if you ever decide to visit. Also, I have always pronounced Chup with a short "uh" sound. I will now amend my ways.

Anonymous said...

Now that ...was funny! Though in the future you might want to film this when Chup isn't looking quite so bored or tired or whatever it was.

awwwshucksallergictonuts said...

Can I just say that all this time I've pronounced "Chup" in a totally different way than you? So now...not only am I no longer a Scorpio {I'm a Libra now}, I have to change the way I say "Chup" when I read your blogs. Geez. What a week.

Lolee said...

Oh man, what do I have to do to become the next "dramatic reading?" I am going to anonymous comment all over this blog!!!

Anonymous said...

ummm...this is not Lolee or anything..this comment is from me, Anonymous! I fully anticipate that this exact comment will be featured as next week's dramatic reading, so I have included some advice for you, like last weeks anonymous poster. 1. Don't try to start a band called the Porkchops, because that is my idea 2. Don't let Ever even date anyone with the last names: Clear, Ready, or After. and lastly 3. If you are ever driving through Virginia, wait until you get to the south part..the gas is cheaper.

Lauren said...

You guys crack me up!! I rarely watch blogs, but yours just pull me in!! :)

The Morrill Mama said...

THAT MADE MY DAY!!!!! And ya, it did look a little pornographic, but it was awesome :) love you CJane!

Jen Wolff said...

Note to self...empty bladder before watching Cjane's and Chup's vlog.

Yes, your exercises looked totally pornographic (once you mentioned it) and it made me laugh all the more.

Wow! Anonymous makes it sound sooo easy! She must be skinny! Thanks for taking something that could be a slap in the face for all us fluffy girls and making light of it. You know, laughing burns calories so I will forgo my push ups that I do while watching your vlog from now on.

I LOVE that you are not a "Molly Mormon" (neither am I) and that you are not afraid to say what is on your mind! Molly would have never said "pornographic" on her blog. Heehee! You are one wacky girl and I *heart* you for it!

Keep the vlogs coming!! A great start to my day!

Tishelle Ward said...

That Vlog was GREAT:)
p.s. The excercises were a little risque looking, but oh so funny!!!

Laura K said...

so funny. love it.

amanda said...

uhm so i know everyone says this - longtime reader, lurker, stalker - never a commenter BUT this was just too perfect. totally giggling. out loud.

hubs just took the girls out for a little daddy/daughter date and i am supposed to be taking a shower (you know the kind where you actually get to close the door) but i ended up here instead.

so glad i did.

thanks and happiest of weekends to you!

janelle perkins said...

I think you should do a "Top 10 anonymous comments" vlog one week. :) with Chup playing the role of narrator. Great video...I laughed so hard.

Valerie said...

LOVED IT!!!! Thanks so much for the laughs!!!!

Anonymous said...

koinky-dink-that's all! :)

Anonymous said...

Typically, for me anyway, you walk that fine line of being endearing, narcissistic, and completely out of touch with the challenges of stay at home motherhood (which by the way draws me to check your blog - so it really works in your favor), but this was so funny. I loved it. I am wondering if your writing is misunderstood by me? Perhaps your sarcasm does not translate as well in writing as it does on video. Perhaps your blogger personality is actually a character made up for entertainment purposes. Whatever it is, it works.

Bridget said...

i love your vlogs.

Ali B. said...

I don't care what the desert-rat news commenters say... I say, WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THISSSS!??

charming. Really... the exercises, the Chup expressions.. the BANANAS? Nice touch. :)

Texas Dimons said...

Love it...I think you should make an exercise video next!

Hannah Mudge said...

Please do more of these. I loved it!

courtney said...

i've never commented before (i read your blog all the time & love it though) but your vlog had me laughing so hard! i just had to let you know. so so funny!
