Accent Vlogs

Have you heard of an accent vlog?? I first saw the beautiful Jenna from Jenna's Journey post her accent vlog (sorry Jenna but your hubby's vlog was more entertaining! I love his country twaaangggg!) and then Michelle from The Vintage Apple posted her hysterical accent vlog that same week! I love it when bloggers post videos so I can match their voice to their writing.


Although I despise my mousey video voice (please don't confuse me with a Justin Beiber loving teeny bopper), I hopped on the accent vlog train. Oh! And Jon agreed to do one too!

The instructions are to say the words listed below. I guess people with accents say these words differently?

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?
So are you dying to hear how I pronounce caramel!?
Please note a few things about this video:
  • I just finished power yoga so excuse my appearance
  • We filmed it with our FlipCam so Jon is holding up a piece of paper for me to read...that explains my wandering eyes
  • Ernie was so cute cuddled up on my lap but halfway through the video starts ripping some serious ass gas. I am glad you can't smell him...
Ruthie's Accent Vlog


Jon's Accent Vlog


So what do ya think...do either of us have an accent? I've decided I am going to make my own Mid West accent vlog word list and make Jon say them. For example... MAAAAAAAMM (mom) & TRAAAAVEL (travel).

Have you done the accent vlog thing? If so, leave a comment with your link! And be sure to link up with Jenna!

xo,

I love this!! I'm gonna try to do it I think :-)
We actually pronounce a lot of the words differently, and I definitely do think you have an accent!

Christina said...

You guys are too cute! I just found your blog! And your pup! Oh, how I want a French Bulldog!! Have a great weekend!

Alana said...

I don't think you have much of an accent, although at first I thought you had a bit of a Southern twang (but that was probably the y'all).

I kind of want to do this but I hate hearing my recorded voice. You never sound like you think you do, you know?

Amanda said...

Loveeeeee your accent vlog! Just made me so happy to hear your voice and see Ernie :) You have a little bit of an accent, but a great one! I want to meet you IRL!

fitvegasfoodie said...

This was really fun! I think you have a southern accent and your hubs doesn't have one (or probably has the same one as me - from IN). I want to do one now! :)

Heather @ we.are.the.holdens said...

Agh! I love this... I think I may have to try it. And I do hear an accent with you, too. :)

Joeylee said...

you guys are to cute! I think I hear a little accent from both of you. this is fun

Lisa said...

You sound just like me! The only answer I would give that's different is "What do you call it when it's raining and the sun is shining?" I'd say Seattle because that's what it was like there!

My fiancé (although he'll be husband by then!) and I are moving to Texas in November. I'm super excited, and look forward to reading your blog! :)

Claire-Christine said...

I love it! The "pa-jahhhh-mas" was funny when both of you said it! I say "puh-JAAAAM-AS" I need to do this I think. Show YOUZ GUYZ what it's all about hehe! So fun!

Elle said...

This is so funny. You guys say everything the same as we do in CA!! Except ya'll of course :)

Mateya said...

So fun! You pretty much speak the same way as we do in SD besides y'all! :)

Jenna said...

Love this! And I don't blame you for posting Chris' vlog - he was much funnier than me! I don't think either of you have an accent but you sound just as sweet as I thought you would!!

Kristy said...

Ya'll are TOO cute!! I don't think ya'll have an accent, but then again, I'm from East Texas and "supposedly" have a pretty thick one..lol!

Anna said...

Hmmm... I think you do have a Texas drawl going at least a little. My husband says pill-bug instead of roly-poly like I say it, and every time he says it, I get confused. Your husband's accent, including the implied Maaaam (mom) is almost the same as mine (NE, MI, Canadian) so it doesn't really seem like he has one. This is such a great idea! And way cool that you both did it.

Amy said...

I don't really think you have an accent at all; could be because we say all of those words exactly the same! ha! I may have to try this and will totally link up if I do!

Krystina said...

Does it make me obnoxious if I say I hear the little accent? :P More so than your hubbys. But all of that is completely overshadowed by the amazingness that is Ernie's gas!

I cannot believe it but watching these actually made me want to play along- AHH! Vlogging has sorta terrified me, but I gave it a shot! :) Check it out-

Amanda said...

Michelle said...

Ok. You guys totally get the award for best looking couple ever. You are absolutely gorgeous and your voice matches you perfectly and your husband is so handsome!!! You guys seriously are so perfect for each other!!!!

I absolutely love the fact that Jon did an accent vlog too! Adorbs!!!

I think you both have a Texas twang when you speak! Jon sounds like a true Texan, even though he is not from here!

And you say y'all!!!!!! Like me!

This just confirmed why I puffy heart you so much!!!!!
