Why Did I Have to Be Born in Arizona?

Happy weekend everyone! I’m loving the responses to my foodie staples post! We all have so much in common, it’s crazy but awesome. We would all get along great, I can tell…well unless we all started fighting over the food supply 😉

So I’ve seen this accent vlog around, on both Alexandra and Tessa’s amazing blogs, and I really wanted to do it myself. Even though I have no accent to speak of. That’s why today’s post is titled the way it is, I’ve always wanted to have an accent but being born in Arizona and living in Colorado means no accent. Hahaha oh well, I love my birth place and where I’m living now, so it’s all good.

So below the vlog is the list of words and questions just in case you wanna play along! Please do because I love hearing everyone’s voices (creeper much?)

 

Words: Aunt, Route, Wash, Oil, Theatre, 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

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?

 

Soooooo yeah, that was fun! I can’t wait to do another vlog hopefully soon 😀

 

What is something you say differently from me? Did my voice match what you thought it would sound like?

What I’ve Been Up To This Weekend

Hey ladies! Hope your weekends have all been as fantabulous as mine. Okay, lie, mine hasn’t been that amazing, but it hasn’t been too shabby either. It’s my first weekend in my new place and I’m still getting settled in and stuff. I thought I’d give you all a little glimpse into what I’ve been doing so far.

1) Being white and nerdy between homework and notetaking.

This is me on a daily basis. No lie. Well, usually minus the sweet glasses I scored from Toy Story 3 last summer. Oh yeah, I am so awesome.

 2) Still lovin’ my choice of nail color.

Who's the trendsetter up in hurrrrrr?

 3) Mis-matching my bracelets.

Oh, FYI, the plaid thing under my arm is my laptop. Yeah, it's ballin'. Just like me.

 4) Getting ready for next weekend’s duck races.

Meet...Dino Duckie! I got him/her at last year's races. I haven't missed them since I started going 5 years ago.

 5) Soaking up fashion quotes and mags.

Fashion calendar. It's like my second Bible.

 6) Working on my photog skills.

Using my real camera vs. my iPod or phone gets much better results. Who knew? Plus now that I'm on my own, it won't be as awks taking pics of everything with a real camera. Win win.

 7) Getting in my calcium, the cool way.

Giant colorful gummies are in, guys. Apparently, along with giant dork glasses and weird faces.

 8) Jammin’ out to Pandora.

I just get annoyed with the commercials. Oh, and when Quick Mix plays the same artist way too many times. But other than that, it's my go-to.

 9) Reading the Denver Post’s food section.

I need to eat at a food truck, stat!

 10) Making my first-ever (well, on this blog) lame-o vlog.

(DISCLAIMER: Please ignore my horrendous videographer skills. Would you believe I’m a broadcast journalism major? 😉 Oh well, I’m better on camera anyways…or am I??????)

What have you been up to this weekend?
