  3. I guess I'm going to have to do this vlog now, because people say I have an accent. I don't.

  5. I can really hear the Southern accent when you say "oil," "fire," and "pecan." Your accent reminds me of my family members who live in KY. I remember the first time I heard one of them call a shopping cart a "buggy." I was so confused!

    You're the first person I've found who pronounces "syrup" the way I do. Woo!

  6. I love that you were so sure of yourself, "When that happens, it's because Satan is beating is wife." No question about it :)

  7. Mrs.DeRaps - I call it a water fountain...what do you call it?

    Jacki - Are you trying to tell me the devil doesn't beat his wife? Because I'm fairly sure he is the kind of guy who would do that

    Everyone else - this was the controlling myself version! I got teased a LOT in junior high for my accent and worked really hard to get rid of it. Should I make a video where I really let it all loose? I still have to make myself say "or-ange" instead or "ahrnge" and "my" instead of "mah".

  8. I think you sound really Southern too. Not too strong of an accent, but still sound Southern. Maybe I'll do this one too. :)

  9. I don't think you SOUND that Southern (at least here, I think you sound more Southern IRL), but you definitely say a lot of Southern-y things...like "because the Devil is beating his wife"!! OMG so cute. Haha.

    I just remember the first time I met you thinking your voice was the cutest thing ever. It totally made me like you 1,000 times more :)

  10. You mainly don't have an accent... I would say. I mean, you do, but your pronunciation is so clear. Pecan though, every time I hear that word I think of you and how you said you were saying it right because your Granddaddy has a pecan farm so of course your way is the right way to say it. :)
    I would say you've got just a bit of a southern bell accent, which your get from your amazing mom of course :)
    I've never vlogged before, I should try it though.
