accent vlog.

I did a vlog.


But I thought the concept was interesting and it's fun to hear how everybody around the US and even other countries say things. So I added my little 2 cents of a video into the mix.

If you have heard nothing about this, tons of people in the blog world have been doing vlogs concerning their accents. You have to say some words and answer some questions.

So I did. Now you have to tell me how bad my accent is, or if something I say is crazy, or whatever. And then do one yourself!

Disclaimer: The video quality isn't great because it's from my cute little children's laptop haha. Also I'm just weird and awkward so just try to get past that if you actually watch it. At the beginning I don't know what's wrong with me but I guess I was just freaked out from being on camera. Okay disclaimer over.

Okay so what do you think?? Do I have more of a Southern accent than I think? Do I use terms that are completely weird? Do you? Make your own!

Here are the words and the questions:

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
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 use to change the TV channel?
I got the instructions from the Blue Eyed Bride. I don't know if there's a giant link-up thing for this somewhere but maybe I'll do that too, who knows haha. 
Also, totally unrelated, but the thought of having a Thirty-One party has ever crossed your mind, DO IT RIGHT NOW. In September. Hostesses get DOUBLE the free stuff. So instead of getting $125 worth of stuff for free, I am getting $250 worth of stuff!!!!! Which is awesome and it will be like Christmas morning when that stuff arrives. I'm so pumped about it. If you don't know a consultant, I know like four of them haha. So I can recommend one for your area. HAVE ONE! NOW! :)
Also, thank you for the prayers concerning the Psalm 100 situation. I know they appreciate it so much as they are still struggling day by day. It's so awesome to be able to lift each other up in prayer knowing that God listens to every one of us.
Have a blessed day and post your accent videos!
