My accent thanks you from Minnahsohtah

UPDATE: I fixed it-it's full length now!
Color me proud. Except now I'm not that proud because
WOW, wait until you get to the end and I do a random and disturbing impression.
Seriously. WHAT is wrong with me?

I really can't believe I did this. I'm so not a vlogger.
You can tell by the horrible lighting and all the fidgeting.
I must really love you.
Here goes...nothin'...

Thank you from Heather King on Vimeo.



I know. I know. That thing at the end. I don't know...
And what? You callin' me a sappy sapperton?
Well...yeah.
Word.


The Maggie I speak of is Maggie Dammit, of course. Just sayin'.

And the post I speak of is here, at Missy's place.


The End.

Thank you for sharing your story. I've been reading our blog for awhile now and I really respect your honesty and openness. I will be praying for you as you go through this new journey in your life. Hugs to you from a fellow Minnesotan (who misses it terribly)! Your accent is refreshing. :)

Yay! Now I can hear your voice when I read your words!

You deserve all the outpouring of comments and support you've gotten :) Keep fighting, mama!

Tara said...

Hey that was really good! You are too hard on yourself, I think you are a great vlogger! It takes some getting used to but I think you have a future in it:)

warmchocmilk said...

Candy said...

You are SO a vlogger. And I heart Minnahsohtah so much! Especially since we're neighbors and all, yah know.

I return I thank YOU for sharing your story straight from the heart.

I could listen to your accent all day. And you're welcome.

Wow. That was the first time I've ever heard your voice. Totally and completely made my day just to hear it. Love to you, lovely lady.

HEATHER! You're so cute and sweet, and your video almost made me cry! I love that you don't hide your imperfections, and I think it's the coolest thing.

You really rock, and I love seeing and hearing you! :)

Denise said...

Maverick. I cannot wait to watch and listen to this on my computer with speakers. Just seeing you "live" made me feel like I know that much more. xo

Jen said...

You are amazing. You deserve it all. :)

OHmommy said...

You're ah-dorable.

Tessa said...

oh, now I miss Minnesota.
I think it was a great vlog.
and I don't know if I commented over at the Marketing Mama, but it was heart warming reading your story.

Steph @ Diapers and Divinity said...

It makes me happy to see you again. :)

One Crafty Mother said...

You are so adorable I can hardly stand it. Makes me miss talking to you on the phone, too! I can't wait to meet you in person in August.

And thank you again for sharing your story - you deserve all the support and love you get. Truly.

And is that a little necklace I see? :)

Love you!

Boy Crazy said...

Oh my gosh, I am DYING over your cuteness. I miss you. And it is so lovely to hear your voice again.

xoxo e.

Elaine A. said...

I love your accent. I guess I didn't hear you speak that much at BlogHer because I TOTALLY would have asked you about your "BOHT!" (did I spell that right?) ;-P

P.S. You're welcome. For all of it. We are here for you sister!

Amy Whitley said...

Well I think you're accent is just adorable. And I read your story on marketing mamas, and the sincerity of it just shone. So thank you for that...your story, laid bare. You're making a difference for people, helping not only yourself but others along the way. Truly.

Motherboard said...

Oh Ya Knowh-- I just LOVE you! And, hearing your voice? Awesomesauce!

Your accent makes my bones ache-- I miss the Midwest!!

Can't wait to see you in 3 weeks!

Kazzy said...

You little cutie patootie, you.

Kimberly said...

I don't know why exactly but I'm all sniffly and trying to hold back tears right now. Love you. Love the realness of you that you're brave enough to share here.

Bina said...

Ah...the sweetness of your voice :)

You are beautiful, Heather...and I am so happy you get the chance to possibly help another out there who is hurting and too afraid to reach out. I truly pray that he or she finds strength in your message!!

Sarah said...

Well look at you, how cute are YOU? The accent, the sweetness, the sincerity. Heather, you are stepping out behind the story and helping others along the way -- telling them that the story no longer has to define them.

So yay! Yay for you and cute and accents and early morning coffee...I need a refill...

Rach@In His Hands said...

Heather, you are precious. I adore you.

And obviously I'm from the Midwest because I don't "hear" an accent!!!

Annette Lyon said...

THIS is why it's called "The Extraordinary Ordinary."

You truly are extraordinary, and that's why we love you.

Lisa Page Rosenberg said...

I heart you.
And your sobriety.
And your dog.
And your forehead.

katdish said...

Oh, Heather!

You're a mess! A beautiful, wonderful, extraordinary mess!

The Marketing Mama said...

ahhhh, I can't believe I have to wait till I get home to watch this - vimeo is totally blocked at work. Bummer.

Billy Coffey said...

I think it's amazing how people are at their strongest when they're at their most vulnerable. Your words sing Heather, whether spoken or written.

Your vlog is awesome. Much like you.

H-Mama said...

You = cuteness. real. strength. impressionist. vlogger. beautiful.

Ann's Rants said...

domenici can take his hieroglyphics and suck it.

(just trying to think of something different than what I always write which is that i heart you and you are amazing and you are wonderful and so so humble)

Benefit Baskets said...

You're so cute Heather! I'm very proud of you! Going to read that post now...

jasonS said...

I don't comment a lot, but I do read and pray for you. I also love that after your "terrifying" impression, the video abruptly ends. :)

Blessings!

Jamie said...

Thank you Heather. You are very, very brave. A mirror for us all. j

Hyacynth said...

Heather, you are adorable.
1. You're definitely a vlogger. And the dog part - totally laughing aloud.

2. I really wish I would have gotten to talk to you more at Cupcake.

3. I hope there's more of this in the future. :)

Kristen @ Motherese said...

Seeing you and hearing you overwhelmed me with the desire to hug you. Really hope to have the chance to do it in person some time!

Thanks, as always, for your honesty and your bravery.

xoxo

TKW said...

You are adorable, brave girl.

The long version is even better! I'm terrible when it comes to emotions and expressing them and showing compassion and empathy because, well, my mom sucked at it. True story. But here it goes anyway.

I've been hooked since Day 1. Your way of expressing yourself is genuine and real, and I completely appreciate how transparent you are (without stripping your heart down naked, if you know what I mean). While my own personal struggles and trials are different, I find myself completely relating with the yours.

I wish you still lived down the street so I could bring you cookies and walk around the Community Park, and maybe it is possible or even probable and likely that I just might tease you about the way you pronounce a few words. Just sayin'.

Laurie said...

You Rock! Love your blog:)

Boy Crazy said...

OH, man. I just watched the full thing and now I love it (and you!) even more. You are so stinking cute. Love you.

Kristen@nosmallthing said...

Hey Heather! I thought your story was awesome to read. I am impressed that you wrote it, and I hope it helps someone. Actually, I'm sure it did.

Good for you.

Oh, and the sharpei thing? Love it.

Duane Scott said...

You are a beautiful person... inside and out. :)

Read your story. Appreciated the honesty. Praying for you always.

Sabrina said...

Well aren't you too cute! It's good to hear your voice and see your face!

Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

Ah, I've missed your voice and accent. Love it, love your story, and love you! <3

Erin said...

You are so authentic! I just loved watching you and hearing your voice. Thank you for this vlog.

(P.S. I wonder if my shar pei impression is half as good as yours?)

:)

MollyinMinn said...

You are amazing. And strong. And real. And honest. And inspiring. And dang funny, to boot. Thank you for being you.

Joanne@ Blessed... said...

Heather,

Just got back from your interview at Andrea's blog. Now, just watched your vimeo. Headed over to read your "story".

Today is my Heather catchup (not to be confused with Heinz 57) day.

You're voice is beautiful. Almost as beautiful as your heart and words.

I will forever think of the movie "Fargo" when I click on the EO!

LOVE you girl!

swonderful said...

Oh man, I have tears. I know I am pregnant, but still. TEARS. I really love you Heather. And I loved seeing your house. Is that weird? It was like, oh okay, EO Headquarters looks like this. It's cozy and cute, just like the online EO.

Lolli said...

I am one of those people who rarely comments. But I had to say something. Thank YOU for your honesty and your REALness. I can't wait to meet you in a few weeks!
