You Guys, I Have An Accent // A Vlog

As you may have noticed, it's August today, which means that I missed my chance at free prints from Snapfish, my birthday is in ten days, and Blog Everyday in July is over.  

But it's not.  Juliette, Allie, and Faith kindly joined a new host, Lindsay from The Wife in Training (which, by the way, is so funny. Check it out!)  They wanted to hear our accents, so they added one last link up topic for today, asking us to answer a bunch of questions and say a some words. 

                                           
 Call me crazy, but I honestly don't think I have an accent - at most, I just sound kind of nasaly from time to time.  Midwest accents are not charming. Well, maybe they are!  Maybe you people from Texas and the Carolinas love the sound of a good northern accent just as much as I love the southern kind! I'll let you make that judgement for yourself.  (Drumroll please.) Please enjoy my second . . . everrrrr . . . VLOG!

I repeat, thanks for watching!  Just to keep it real . . . you should know that I literally had to clear out a hole in the clothes and general clutter that usually covers the floor of my room in order to film this.  I had my laptop set up on a laundry basket and I sat in the barely butt-sized hole that I had cleaned, just for this occasion. Also, I put on a bunch of makeup and a real shirt for your sake, but that's as far as I was willing to go.  In fact, I'm pretty sure I was either wearing pajama pants or none at all for the majority of this vlog.

So, yeah.  Not a professional.  I'm working on it.

Later, skater!

    1. I practiced that word list, like, 40 times. Not that many. A lot. It was like, "Shoot, the vlog's in two days. I've got to get better at this!" Oh, thanks so much! It was so much fun . . . I think I will! Way to be inspirational.

  4. That was so cute!!!!!!! You kind of do have an accent. I feel like most people who don't live in the same state as you will think you have an accent.
    P.S. You already found out, but I nominated you for the Liebster Award!!!!!!!

  5. I'm from Ohio and call carbonated beverages "pop" too, but after I moved to Florida for a few years I started calling it soda because people acted like they had no idea what I was talking about. The aisles in the grocery store with such beverages say 'soda-pop'. It's not a huge leap lol. I also say "hey guys" or "you guys" to address a group of people. That or 'ya'll'.

    1. It's crazy! A lot of people in the south literally have no idea what you're talking about when you refer to pop, but that's definitely what it's called!

  6. Pretty sure your video was my fav of them all. I always says 'guys' too when addressing anyone (sorry ladies of the world) and YES to saying pop!

    1. Really? Gosh, thanks! Yeah, I don't know where the whole "guys" thing came from, but I guess it's okay! It's pop, period.
