I am popping over from Lily's and loved the quote you have at the start of your blog, it really hit a nerve, stunning really. I adore how laundry is your downfall, it is mine too, if I had the money we would just buy new clothes every day or have a live in laundry maid to do it all for me...but with the lottery tickets not being purchased, and 5 bods to clothe I am stuck with a basket in my hand and a glass of champers in the other. Really nice to find your blog.

Could it be that we are destined to be best friends? I think so.

Whistling drives me batty. Except when my daddy does it.

My Momma did my laundry till I was 18nahalf.

I agree that sand ruins pedicures.

Unc Kracker and Kenny are seriously paradise in a song...Jason Mraz..eh hmm.. he's heaven.

I love Wildflowers, they are breathtaking.

I seriously didn't believe in Gypsy's till I read this.

I seriously cannot bake or make a pecan pie to SAVE MY LIFE. It's impossible.

Seriously, My MawMaws chicken n dumplings are my favorite foood. Ever.

I think a Southern Blogger as Hell is a genius Idea.

Um, did you say you lived in Hattiesburg?? I swear you told me that once. We seriously need to meet up.
