Video Re-Blog: My Dialects!

So a friend of mine, Stephanie, is a big blogger (here’s the link to her blog …) so naturally she has TONS of blogging friends that she made online. One of them is Leigh-Ann of The Freckled Nest! She is my source for this fun little Vlog!

P.S.- I have a small translation for those of you that can’t understand my mumbling, and would be happy to go further in depth if need be HAHA!

My Midwestern Dialect!

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
Now 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?

In case you couldn’t understand my mumbley introduction…
I was just saying how I got this idea from Leigh-Ann (her blog here…) who is one of my friend’s best friend. Therefore she is my friend by default. :)
I also said that I like this idea because I am always teased here in California for my “silly Midwestern accent” which is in fact… VERY close to a Canadian Accent. Something tells me that Leigh-Ann and I will get along well when she comes to visit for Stephanie’s baby shower. :P I close out my introduction just saying that I think my family will enjoy this video because they know how matt teases my accent… and now it is in full video form to enjoy again and again… HA!

Thanks for watching this goofy video. :) If you want… you can leave a comment with a link to YOUR video!

Thanks for watching guys and gals!
And a THANKS to Leigh-Ann at The Freckled Nest for supplying me with such a fun little post!

Til next time…

I return... with LOTS of news! :)

No longer out of commission! :)
You may notice I changed up the look of my blog.

NO I'm not having problems haha... I just think it is a very beautiful picture. I wish I knew the artist's name!

So the past few weeks have been extremely eventful. That is why I haven't been able to post until NOW! :P

A few weeks ago our friends Justin and Felicia came to visit from SoCal and Washington.

Here is a slideshow of all our fun!

Then after the visit I got right down to turning in JOB APPLICATIONS...
I turned some in to little cafes and restaurants but alas... no luck there...
Then I turned one in to a little Veterinarian Clinic. Haven't heard back from them so I am guessing they don't need a receptionist. Then I turned one in to Panera Bread Company... and I found out that if I would have submitted it just a BIT sooner, I would have probably gotten a job there... The gal told me that they JUST hired someone... :(
HOWEVER!!!! The future is looking bright! I submitted an application online to Target and they were looking for help. I'll be calling them tomorrow to see if they've looked at my application and to get them to call me back for an interview! Hehe! Hopefully all works out, because I am going NUTS sitting in the apartment all day!

Then this past weekend was EASTER! We went to Matt's parents house to visit and stayed overnight. On Sunday we left early to attend the San Francisco Giants EASTER game! It was fabulous and I think I am in love with Brian Wilson! :P
Here are the pictures!

ANYWAY that is all I have to say for now. I'll keep you posted on the little tidbits of my recent happenings!
