I hope y’all had a wonderful weekend! It rained here, but we needed it. It rained so hard yesterday, W even wore her rain boots to church. We’re headed to Monkey Joe’s this morning, to let out some of the girls’ much needed energy, that was kept indoors all weekend. I did manage to make the weekend productive, I stored away our winter clothes, and got out the spring and summer wardrobe! Hopefully, it will make the warm weather come faster, and STAY! Oh, and the best part of the weekend, the HEELS won, against DUKE!!
A Southern Belle (according to urbandictionary.com):
Clean skin. A winning smile.
That unforgettable Southern drawl.
Southern women know their manners:
“Why, no, Billy!”
Southern women have a distinct way with fond expressions:
“Y’all come back!”
“Well, bless your heart.”
“Drop by when you can.”
“How’s your Momma?”
Southern women know their summer weather report:
Southern women know their vacation spots:
Southern women know the joys of June, July, and August:
Colorful hi-heel sandals
Strapless sun dresses
Southern women know everybody’s first name:
Southern women know the movies that speak to their hearts:
Fried Green Tomatoes
Driving Miss Daisy
Gone With The Wind
Southern women know their religions:
Southern women know their country breakfasts:
Mouth-watering homemade biscuits with momma’s homemade jelly
Southern women know their cities dripping with Southern charm:
New Orleans (N’awlins)
Men in uniform.
Men in tuxedos
Rhett Butler, of course!
Southern women know their prime real estate:
The Country Club
The Beauty Salon
Southern women know the four deadly sins:
Having bad hair and nails
Having bad manners
Cooking bad food
Wearing too much makeup in the summer
Southern women know men may come and go, but friends are forever!
Southern belles are a true God-given gift to the world, and if you’re a northern transplant, well just bless your heart, fake it! We all know that you got here as fast as you could!
All the ladies from Steel Magnolias

Love it! I just forwarded it to all my Southern Belle transplants that moved up here to Chicago. I am still awaiting my ticket to move on down south. I have always felt that my true calling was to be a Southern Belle. Alas, I am born and raised Chicagoan.
I love this, every bit of it is true!
