Most Embarrassing Thing Ever. Oh, and Don’t You Love Paint?


I may not need stuff, but I do need paint. 

Does that count as stuff?

I definitely won’t be buying any this month, but you can bet on the fact that I will be using lots of it for many, many upcoming projects in our house.  A little paint can go such a long way, and can end up costing you a lot LESS than purchasing big, pricey items – take painting my kitchen cupboards and the hutch, for example.  Brand new, those things would have cost us THOUSANDS more!

Hutch Makeover (before and after) - The Learner ObserverSo this weekend I had paint on the brain. And turkey.


Thanks to a busy weekend filled with not one, but TWO turkey dinners, I’m bringing you a SUPER embarrassing video I made for Para Paints in hopes of being one of their new Para Blog Crew members.

Anyone else hate seeing themselves on video?  My voice is weird, and I have crazy eyes.  The transitions are pretty terrible because the turkey coma I have been in made it hard for me to focus, alright?

Cross your fingers for me.

And your toes.


Because I may have embarrassed myself for nothing, and that would be terrible!  Well, not entirely, because you have officially gotten to see what it’s like to have me tell you a story… all over the place.

I hope you had an amazing long weekend, and long naps after those huge dinners!

    YAY! This was incredible. I’ve seen snippets of you on video (ice skating, insta-video), but this was like going from having a piece of a candy to a piece of cake! So incredible! And you so deserve this gig – – let me know who to email to convince them. And wait a minute – – can I just pause to say that I’ve been pronouncing your name wrong in my head this entire time. It’s pronounced “Ta-lita, not Tha-lita.” Egads! So glad we figured this out before skyping so I didn’t embarrass myself completely as a really bad friend. Oh, and I loved hearing your Canadian accent slip out – – “about.” Tee hee. You’re the cutest!

      HAHA Yeah, now you know what a fast talker I am and that I have crazy eyes!!! You are too sweet. I have NO idea how they are picking… you can see some more of the fantastic videos on the Para Paints Facebook page and comment there. There are some REALLY amazing ones!

      Oh and the whole world pronounces my name like that! It’s all thanks to being born in Brazil, where the ‘h’ is silent! All good – I would never ever hold it against you!!!

      Can’t help that Canadian accent! haha

    You, ma’am, owe yourself at least 2 compliments for the 2 putdowns you gave yourself! You seemed very comfortable on camera and I enjoyed hearing you speak – something blogging doesn’t let you do very often. Best of luck to you!
