My Southern Accent

So, Make Mine a Mojito's most recent post reminded me that while in Los Angeles last month, several of my co-workers said every time they hear this commercial, they think of me. I only deal with a lot of them on the phone, so they get to hear me quite often. I hadn't yet seen it, but I have now.

Personally, I don't think my accent is this bad - I mean, I don't sound like Britany or anything...I don't I????

Now y'all know where I got my blog name from. I wasn't kidding. And I'm getting a Flip camera for Christmas, so maybe I'll really let y'all hear what I sound like in 2010 so you can get a chuckle.


  1. Wendy, this has been my favorite for a LONG time. It really cracks me up!
    I don't think we sound quite like this but almost.

  2. I love this commercial! Cracks me up! I have not figure out how to post a video on my blog yet!

  3. Haha - this commercial always makes me laugh!

    I didn't think my accent was that bad compared to some I know. Then I heard myself talking on a recording I made at Thanksgiving. I'm definitely southern. My mom says it's gotten more pronounced since I moved to Tennessee.

  4. Whatever...they're just jealous that they don't have a southern drawl. :)

    I guess that not too many Southerners make their way to the West coast. I have family in Oregon and when I was visiting the last time, every one I ran into was just so fascinated with my Southern accent. LOL

  5. oh my gosh so cute! for reals! :)

  6. I love this commercial - it's so clever and the accent reminds me of several people I know (not to mention the attitude)!

  7. Your Southern Accent is fabulous!!! I can't wait to see what you do with your Flip, they're so much fun!

  8. I've always loved your accent! I wish my southern accent was more like yours. Mine is just twangy!

  9. Hahahaa, that is way to funny. I laughed the first time I saw that commercial... and if you do sound even a little like that, well, then... how cute are you!!!!! I think southern accents are adorable.


  10. I LOVE that commercial! I get alot of comments on my accent as well.

  11. I live in Cali right now, but we are southern born and bred. People say that commercial reminds them of me all the time. I tell them that they are not funny!

  12. That commercial is sooooo funny to me!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
