A Dialect VLOG, Y'all!


I finally did it. 
The ever-popular dialect blog. 
(and Will & Hudson accompanied me.)
Fun stuff.

It's pretty random. 
and kind of choppy.
but it's done, just the same.
---------------------------------------------------

The instructions are to say these words:
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
And answer these 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 use to change the TV channel?

--------------------------------------------
Sooo, what do you think?
Do we sound Southern, or what?
AND, tell me: do I sound the way that you imagined I would?
That's always my favorite part about watching vlogs....trying to see if the person's voice matches their looks. Ha.

oh my goodness! you three are adorable. Hudson definitely made me laugh so hard... i even had to show my roommate the extreme cuteness coming from him :b

kisses!

Liz said...

So cute! You guys had me smiling and laughing the whole time! Super sweet!

Kira said...

Haha, Hudson is the cutest. You guys definitely had a few sayings I have never heard of. When it rains while the sun shines has no saying here. It's just raining and sunny :)

Rach said...

So southern and so adorable!

Gentri said...

AH! I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! It's so fun to hear all of your voices and Hudson is adorable. :D Loved when you guys said fire and he went *GASP* *blow* (like he was blowing out the fire) haha!

Andrea said...

You guys are so cute!! And Hudson? Oh my goodness, what an adorable kid! I loved it when he said "peace out" at the end and held up his fingers.. soooo cute!! :)

Natasha said...

haha..I love this!
It's funny how different some of my answers would have been....half of you "sayings" I'd never heard before!

misc.alaina said...

Ya'll are such a cute family! I am used to southern accents, so you don't sound out of the ordinary to me. Like your husband, I also call a cart a buggy and my northern friends think I am crazy! I would say your voice matches what I imagined. Hudson's "Peace Out" at the end is total cuteness!!

Gwiddle said...

That is so crazy, I never imagined you sounding like that! BUT, it is so freaking adorable. I love that Hudson was trying to copy you guys. Haha.

Haley K said...

I watched this with my hubs and i loved every minute of it! :) We had some good laughs with you guys :) So fun to hear you talk and see you interact!! And oh your little Hudson just makes me melt!...Adam and I loved when you & Will said "fire" and then Hudson pretended to blow a fire out! haha! And about the buggy/cart thing, my old college roommate from the east coast calls it a buggy too! i grew up calling it cart, but loooooove thinking of it as a buggy. heehee ;)

peace out Ashley!!! ;)

And Adam and I both want to thank you for your prayers for his Grandfather...SO sweet of you.

Diana Smith said...

That was awesome Ashley! I say sooo many things sooo different than you do! haha I guess thats because I grew up on West Coast. I am going to have to do that with Daniel. He says so many things differently than I do! (Caramel!) hehe thanks for the free entertainment.

Jackie said...

Oh my gosh! So cute and funny!!! I want to do this!!!! xx ps. Hudson is a doll in your photos but he's even cuter on camera!!!

Grumpy Grateful Mom said...

Loved this! That was one of the cutest vlogs! It was fun to see the three of you together. It cracked me up when your little one blew out the fire. :)

Annie said...

Alaythea said...

OMG! LOVED this! And, no, even thought I know you are from Bama I never imagined you sounding quite that Southern! But people say the same thing about me. I need to do this with my husband because there are several things we say a lot different than each other! So cute!

Cindy P said...

Oh I love it! This is so cute! I love your little accents. I'm totally gonna have to do this myself with Collin! =D

Amanda said...

I think I just fell in love with Hudson, and you, and your hubby! You are such a sweet and cute family! It was so fun getting to hear your voice :)

Michelle (michabella) said...

OMG! I LOVE IT!!! Y'all accent is so cute! And Hudson is ADORABLE!! Hahaha. Love that lil guy.

A Southern Dude said...

Well Swoop, This was fun I am glad you talked me into it. Its funny going back and watching Hudson repeating everything and blowing the fire out. You are just the way I thought you would sound.

LOVE YOU & PEACE OUT!!!

My Journey With Candida said...

How cute!! Hudson wanted his time to vlog too. LOL... so cute.

Alessandra said...

I loved loved loved viewing this! You guys are adorable, Hudson cracked me up and it was great to hear your voices.
Really fun post.

rachel said...

oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh i am SO excited to watch this!!!!! i haven't watched it yet...i was hoping you would do it! i am totally dorking out right now but i can't help it! and Hudson and Will too? this is the best!

jeannie said...

I have never heard the one about the rain!!! Cute vlog. Hudson is so adorable.

Brianna said...

She is probably the cutest little thang ever! That was adorrrable! I probably couldn't Landon to say hi once, he's too shy! lol I think I may try this out! Seen it everywhere!

Shannon McHale said...

I LOVE your accent. In Nebraska we don't have one (I don't think). A lot of telemarketing companies are based out of Omaha because we sound very plain. Bor-ring.

Mrs. Biscuit said...

Hudson is seriously the cutest thing EVER!

I about died when he started saying the words with you... then when you said fire and he blew I officially died from the cuteness!!! Is it creepy that I totally want to drive all the way from Arizona to meet him? Okay, when I wrote it down it definitely seems creepy... But he's hilarious!

Oh and you definitely have more of an accent than I expected! I mean I know you're in Alabama, but since I'm from California I assume everyone talks the same... Like the people on TV!

and comment if anything comes to mind!

Marisa Noelle said...

So so cute are you all!! I love the southernness. Hudson is seriously the cutest thing ever..he had me cracking up the whole time. I made one of these too with my hubs and have yet to post it:) You definitely sounded exactly how I thought you would.

Meri said...

ahahahahaha I'm laughing so hard at the 27 "hello"s in a row from Hudson haha! I knew you would sound southern but didn't know what your mannerisms would be like. Fun vlog!

{andthisiswhatshesaid} said...

haha love this! I did NOT expect you to have that cute southern voice, but I love it. Totally love Hudson and his repeat of hello... ps, cutest thing ever when you said Fire and he blew like he was blowing it out.

Janette said...

OH MYYYYYYY! That was THEE BEST THING EVER!!! Okay.. Here's my rundown.. Hudson is super adorable.. Even more so than I had previously imagined...He sounds like I imagined in my head... And you sound like a doll...I imagined your voice to be a little bit deeper... Not that it's high pitched.. It's not..But I just pictured it a little bit deeper..Know what I mean?? And you look like you're 16 in this video!! Are you???? Did we secretly lie to me about your age???
GASP!

I couldn't really hear the southern accent until you said "data" and "syrup".

Can't tell you how happy it makes me that you finally did this! Now you HAVE to do more.. You just HAVE to! You can't leave me hanging like this ok???
OKAY!

jessica said...

This is SO cute! First of all, I love your accents and I would so love to convince my hubby to do this but I don't think he would. Secondly, Hudson literally had me laughing out loud the entire time! His ongoing "Hellos" were so funny!

Courtney B said...

Oh my good grief! Hudson is adorrrrable.
And seriously, this vlog had me smiling/laughing the whole time! You and Will remind me so much of me and Eric. We HAVE to meet someday :)
And for some reason, I wasn't expecting the southern drawl, don't ask me why! But I LOVE it. I could listen to you talk all day. (Definitely in a non creepy way though. I just love the sounds of that accent! And Australian's accents, haha.)

meghan said...

Y'all are so so cute!! My gosh! I loved this vlog! Hudson is precious. And I call the grocery cart a buggie too!

Carrie said...

cutest.vlog.ever.

The Frat Pack + Me said...

Love this! Love when Hudson blows when you say "fire." I am a born + bred southerner, but have never heard the phrase: the devil's beating his wife.

thedemuremuse.com said...

You and your family are so cute!! I especially love how Hudson could not stop saying "Hello" over and over at the beginning. What a cutie!!

Judy said...

Y'all are so cute!! This is the first Vlog that I actually got excited about!

Kim {Yep, they are all mine} said...

I am dead from the cuteness.

I have to admit, I was less than excited to see yet another accent vlog....BUT? This was awesome and totally entertaining. I've seen a million of these and yours was by far the best!!! The whole devil beating his wife thing? Hahaha - I've never heard of that! And I did not expect y'all to sound SO southern ;) It's perfect.

PS, Love when Hudson blows out the fire.

Ana said...

Your accent is so cute! Loved this.
Your family is adorable!

Melanie said...

OMGoodness y'all are the cutest family! I am jealous of your accents... I've seceretly ALWAYS wanted a southern accent! Hudson is the CUTEST, seriously. So glad you guys did this! Xo

Shalyn said...

Did you really have to kill us with the cuteness .2 seconds in? That hello from Hudson is so sweet! I love your little accents, they are perfect! The only thing we say different is "salmon." Except you say everything much cuter, ha

To Hudson- HELLO HELLO HELLO HELLO HELLO HELLO HELLO HELLO

Ashley Slater said...

ummmmm. BEST BLOG EVER!

xo,
ashley

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

aweeeeeeeeeeee, Ashley this was so great to see today, makes me wanna reach out and give ya'all kisses on the cheek! i think Hudson might like saying "hello" right?! and my fave word from the bunch was syrup, it sounds extra sweet when you say it. the accents are something i wanna soak in like the aforementioned syrup. they are d-vine!!!! just the way i'd imagined. xo ♥

Ashley said...

This was a super cute vlog! I'm not sure my midwestern 'accent' sounds all that interesting... and I call carbonated drink 'pop' hehe. It was super cute when Hudson blew out the fire! (:

Yeah I think you sounded like I imagined.

Cara-Mia said...

This was so cute! Love that your whole family did it with you. :)

And your husband is the second southerner I see doing this dialect challenge that seems to be embarrassed about calling a shopping cart a buggy. ;)

christa morris said...

I love your southern accent!!!!!!! And Hudsons is 134567X cuter on video!

Angie said...

Long time, no blog :( I missed my sweet Ashley at hh...I just watched your vlog ..omg...you sound just like me!!!! Hudson is a doll and your husband cracked me up!!!
