Hello all.  Okay PLEASE be kind, I HATE myself on video but I'm doing this anyway!  Enjoy!

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

I can hear a very, very slight me, it's just an "American" accent, that I hear when I cross the border an hour away haha
And I thought all Americans called pop 'soda' (it's definitely POP here in Canada), so when you said that, I was like, ya! hahah


You are absolutely adorable on camera, Krysten! :)


cuteness! but I already knew that aboot you ;)

and you most def do not have an accent ;)


That is so cute, you look great:)


I say all the same things! :)

Except when I moved to Texas I started calling it "soda" because I got made fun of for saying "pop", but I was not about to call all pop "coke"!


I love the video! It makes you feel you know the person. :) lol


This was great to listen to, because you answered and pronounced everything exactly like I would! Haha. Love the Midwest! Pop FTW! :)


I don't hear much of an accent! Love learning about you Krysten. Love sun shower...makes it sound so pretty!


you are SO cute! and you say "aunt" the way i do...hooray! (;

i did one of these too! here it is if you would like to see it, i'd love to know what you think. (:

oh and your comment on my blog today about wearing the socks to bed was so funny! thanks for the laugh in my day (:


p.s. just saw in my comments you've already watched my vlog and i'd forgotten, haha!


I don't hear an accent at all, but maybe that's just me!

And you did just fine for your first vlog! I'm horribly awkward in front of a camera, so I feel your pain!

You did good for your first vlog. I can hear a bit of the Midwest accent, but us Midwestern girls are the best anyway.

Sandy a la Mode

you are SOOOOO cute girl!! :D


I dont really hear an accent but i'm so happy that you said pecan right :)


So admire you for being courageous enough to vlog! I have yet to get up the nerve for that. I don't hear an accent ;-)

Jessie Szmanda

Can't hear it - but probably because I have the same one - lol!


How cute are you?! Love it!
P.s. Pop hehe people would wonder what you're talkin bout out here lol I love it


You're so cute! I can definitely hear your midwest accent peeping out - and not so much in the words that you have to say for this meme, but just in your speech. As I said, cute!


ha! there you are! Cute, your voice is nothing like i imagined, but then i'm not quite sure what i expected lol


nice :) does any one else call the tv remote a "clicker"? I do but don't know any others that do besides my family!

Congratulations on your first vlog! It was great actually hearing you, now I can put a voice to all the words I read on your blog :) Well done Krysten!

Impulsive Addict

Your accent is so cute! I've done this one before too. It's cool to hear everyone!

lo @ crazy ever after

I just tweeted the other day that I'd do a vlog when I hit 100 followers I am currently at 98). But I'd do it after I had three beers because my Minnesota accent is super bad after I have had a few adult beverages. As a fellow upper-midwesterner, I also say, "Hey guys" or "You guys". And I say "tennies" for gym shoes. Haha. I was sure you'd say that too. But you didn't. Must be a small town Minnesota thing.

I do hear your accent! And thought your voice would be deeper, for some reason. I am always wrong at judgin the voice by the picture!


Hahaha. I'm from one of those towns where 'water' is pronounced 'WOOD-er'. It's great bringing friends home to that.


I love these things! They are addicting. And don't worry, you did very well on video!


I loved hearing you speak. You sound nothing like I'd imagined though. But I think you have a cute accent. You do have a slight accent to me, but probably cos I'm more used to the FL/Southern accents. Then again, I am also used to the British and Irish accents... lol. I might do a video like that too, but I know for a fact I do have an accent, being French and all...
