the accent vlog.

So I vlogged.

Can I preface this by saying that I HATE my voice, I say umm a lot, I say anyways a lot, I fidget big time and I'm throw up nervous putting this out there.

I don't know why. I kind of feel like y'all are seeing me naked by hearing my voice. That's weird. But... if the shoe fits...

But it's here. Gulp.

Love the cameo by the climbing seventeen (gasp!) month old in the background. And listen carefully for the "thump" followed by complete silence. Let's just say BG and the floor got in a fight. So there's that.

I'm linking up over at Jenna's blog to share this so check out the other bloggers that did this.



Just a little background, I'm from Georgia and have lived there most of my life. I moved to Missouri with Mr. P for about nine months where I was made fun of mercilessly for my accent and my expressions. Now I'm in South Carolina and I don't see the accent chilling out any time soon.

Here's the words and questions. Y'all have fun!

The instructions are to say these words:
Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, Sure, Data, Ruin, Crayon, Toilet, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Spitting image, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Syrup, Pajamas, Caught


And answer these questions:

What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?

What is the bug that when you touch it, it curls into a ball?

What is the bubbly carbonated drink called?

What do you call gym shoes?

What do you say to address a group of people?

What do you call the kind of spider that has an oval-shaped body and extremely long legs?

What do you call your grandparents?

What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?

What do you call it when rain falls while the sun is shining?

What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

Love it!
I definitely think you have a southern accent too!
Also, I LOVE that shirt, where is it from?

I BUSTED out laughing when you said you don't think you have an accent. Honey- you do. haha. Luckily, it's an adorable one! I wish I sounded like you. People say Paula Deen's accent is fake, but I think you sound a lot like her- and y'all are both from Savannah, so that makes sense...anyway, thanks for doing this! Loved it!

Ashley said...

Love it! I don't think you have an accent, but I think it's because I'm use to hearing it!

Cari Leigh said...

Fun! I did it too! This is so fun to see and hear everyone :)

You have one of those darling, soft accents - and yes, dear, you do have one - that us Yankees secretly covet. The "caramel" gives you away :-).

Mandy said...

omg...you have the cutest southern accent ever!! You've totally inspired me to do this as well. Look for it later this week!

Meg said...

I was waiting to see if you would say buggy. Glad we are not the only ones who say that! ;)

Jenny @ Practically Perfect... said...

Oooh, loved it! Your voice reminds me of my in-laws... who live in Georgia :-) This looks like fun - may have to give it a try, although I'm like you in that I'd be nervous!!!

Sara said...

I love it! I absolutely hate my voice when recorded so I think I would cringe to do this, but it's such a cute idea. And, the words my husband (who is not a Texan) makes fun of me for aren't on the list. :)
