Vlog #2...The Mature Years

There are so many things I want to point out before y'all watch this video. 

First, the angles are really bad.  Sorry.  I did one take, stumbled all over my words, and did a second take, and couldn't keep in the frame.  Oh well, I'm not trying for a third take.  Just tilt your head, you may not even notice.

Second, The lighting was really bad.  There were moments that I looked at my complexion, and my face looked orange compared to my body.  I can assure you that I CAN match my makeup to my skin color better than it appears. 

Finally, please ignore any major messes you can see.  The maid took the day off...for her birthday.  Whatcha gonna do?

Here's the list of words and questions for your personal reference.  After all, I'm probably saying them all wrong...

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, Antenna, Root beer, Ambulance, Museum, Milk, Orange, Apricot

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?

Where do you buy your groceries?


Thanks so much Mamarazzi and Shawn for hosting!  It's been fun!

Good gravy! I can't stop smiling! I have a room!!!

P.S. I thought you had more of an accent in this than I thought you did. There just might be a little sourthern twang in there. I like it!

Angel said...

I loved your Vlog! I don't think you have an accent at all! "Who decorates their torture lair with Disney?" That's a great line!

Anonymous said...

Love this vlog! And you're just beautiful - makeup or not! We say a lot of the words the same way ... except apricot ... why am I so alone in this!

Shawn said...

Before I hit play I want to say Happy BIrthday!

Shawn said...

Nope, I hear no accent, you sound like me, except pecan and apricot which has been the norm.

I loved TPing, it was such fun!

YAY, you didn't say rolly-polly I'm so excited!

Look at tat baby sleeping on the cool tile, so sweet!

I took the guest bedroom and made it my office. The only regular visitor I have is my sister and she sleeps with Peanut because Peanut will not allow her to stay any where else!

Thanks for linking up and I just have to say your kids played so nicely in the background. Very impressive!

MiMi said...

A teeny tiny accent.
But you are adorable and I love the color of paint in your kitchen. :)
Can I come too? I bet I could share that bed....lol!
What a crap friend I am, I didn't know it was your birthday!
Happy Happy Happy Birthday!!!!

Yer old.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, FRIEND! Welcome to the 30's club. It's very exclusive! ;)

I don't hear much of an accent at all but I think I said that last month too!

You have a huge house!! HOLY MOLY! Evelyn gets her own room? So jealous. You two crazy girls will have tons of fun celebrating your birthdays!

Xazmin said...

You made it! Happy birthday and I want to smack you for not telling me last night that your birthday was today!

I love you!

And I am so jealous of your taaaaalllll ceilings!

shortmama said...

Love your high ceilings! Beautiful! Didnt notice any accent!

Happy Birthday! Hope you have lots of fun!

Bridget said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I loved getting to hear your word list. Love your guest room, too!

So glad you VLOG'd!!

Mamarazzi said...


my 30's were awesome, i hope your's are too!

very small twang, but i am guessing that is from living in Texas.

i am so glad that you and Evelyn are getting together. i do feel responsible for the match up, so you. are. welcome. (yep, i am weird like that, just like i told Evelyn on her blog)

your home is beautiful.

I didn't hear an accent, just some mispronuciations! :-) Kind of surprises me when my kids say words differently than me...like
Data, New Orleans & Root Beer. I'm also surprised you used the full terminology of "toilet papering" rather than T.P.-ing. Of course that's probably not a phrase your mother ever used around you, eh?

So impressed to see Sadie lying calmly by the fireplace! Last time I saw her, she was full-size but still in puppy phase. I bet she's a good companion for the kids now!

And, you're beautiful with or without makeup! Where'd you get your looks?!?!?!?!? Happy Birthday Baby!

Janna said...

Happy Birthday!!!

Man...I love the VLOG project...it is so fun to see our friends!

Hope you had a wonderful birthday...was it actually TODAY?

Miss Angie said...

You are soo cute! I love seeing everyone I've interacted with for real!

I also didn't know you were in Utah either! I live in SLC, awesome!

Myya said...


LOVE your tall ceilings! LOOVE that I could hear the kids playing in the background. My kids never leave me alone, how did you manage that???

I didn't hear too much of an accent but I love how you go ummm yeah whatever all the time. hee-hee.

Soooooo exciting that you & Evelyn get to meet. I am so bummed I am all the way over in Oregon, I am so far away from most of my bloggy buddies. Dang-it!

Creating Sarah said...

I love it! I didn't hear you say anything differently than I would have said it. We must be normal!

I love that you called it your "torture lair" and I love even more that it is decorated with Disney toys.

I'm excited for you and Evelyn to meet. I have known Evelyn for a long time and I've always thought she was one of the best people in the world. You two will have fun!

P.S. This is my new blog profile. I'm kind of following you on both of them, so sorry if I confuse you with a lot of name changes. I'll probably stick mostly with this one, but sometimes I slip. =)

You are too cute girl! I love that room!

VandyJ said...

My hubby would kill for those high ceilings.
This has been such fun hearing the accents and non accents.

Jenerally Speaking said...

Happy Birthday! Love love love your ceilings. :) Cute vlog! :)

jennykate77 said...

I think you sound totally normal.

Cute puppy! I love your high ceilings and I love your paint colors!

Emmy said...

Fuzzy Suzan was a bear? :). After you talked about the bugs I just couldn't get that out of my head.

sarajo said...
