It's my very first Vlog, y'all!

This morning the first message that popped up on facebook was from my cyber-sister, Jennifer, who basically said (and I'm paraphrasing here), "Since we chatted on the phone and I thought you sounded like a total hick, I want you to go RIGHT NOW to this blog and make a video. And don't give me that, 'I'm a mom with five kids so I don't have time for this' crap. DO IT."
And since I aim to please, I cruised on over to Jenna's Journey to see what in the world Jennifer was talking about.
The instructions were simple enough, even for a com-pooter degenerate like myself...
Answer the following 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 the 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 channels with?

Then, say the following 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
I had the Meteorologist film me, and ask the questions. I figured we'd go ahead and kill two birds with one stone, and let y'all hear him as well.

Afterwards, Hail and Lightning asked me to make a video of them. Since it kept them from fighting for all of five minutes, I was happy to oblige.

I still haven't watched any of the other videos that linked up over at Jenna's Journey, but I'm headed over to do so now. Link up and play along with me!

For some reason I can't get the video of Lightning and Hail to embed, surprise surprise, so here's the direct link:

Oh, and PS. I had NO idea my face was already so stinkin' swollen! I'm only 22 weeks, so why do I look the full 40?? Sigh.

I have already started the dreaded face swell as well. So fun. So cruel.

LOVE your blog! Thanks for stopping by mine! And you sound just like my family. I felt like I was listening to one of my cousins talking. I think your (our?) accent is pretty... not hick at all! :)

You are so stinkin' cute! I don't think we sound like hicks, but I've had people ask me how I spell Mama...lol. And I think Bert's accent is more pronounced than yours. :P
