I’m From the South, Where…

“Everyone pulls over to let a funeral procession pass

We don’t have fireflies, we got lightnin bugs

Taters are mandatory while shoes are not

Y’all is a proper noun

Ain’t is a word

Chicken is fried

Biscuits come with gravy

Sweet tea is the house wine

Shopping carts are buggies

You never disrespect your elders

We talk to strangers

We wave a lot!

We love pearls, porches, peanuts

& Blessin’ hearts”

 

“Beneath the makeup, beneath the style, I’m just a Southern Girl with a smile”

My Top 3 Summer Tunes…

I’m feeling more country than usual, if possible. The music has made its way into my playlist, and I’m gonna share some of my favorite songs with you. Wherever your summer vacation may take you, having some tunes just makes it that much sweeter.

 Of course I listen to the regular pop and rock music, but like I said I’m feeling country today. Surprised? Didn’t think so…

 Here’s The Top 3 “Cheeky” Tunes For the Summer…

 Carrie Underwood

 Of course I had to start with Carrie… How could I not? She’s my go-to girl. Maybe it’s the way she writes her songs, or maybe just her awesome voice, I’m not quite sure. Something about her music always gets me pumped up and ready to cruise down the river (a personal favorite vacation spot).

 Picture it: you’re riding horseback or sitting by the fire on your very own ranch, with a little Carrie Underwood in the background. Doesn’t that sound like a perfect picture? It sure does to me, but

 Song(s) of Choice: Blown Away, Good Girl, Before He Cheats

 Lady Antebellum

Not gonna lie, when Lady Antebellum first came out I wasn’t a huge fan. Apparently music tastes of mine tend to change, so here I am writing about them. I know they’ve gotten some slack because of their name… Antebellum is noted as the pre-Civil War south. Which, many say, was built on the backs of slaves, and is therefore derogatory.

 I don’t usually go on rants but for those of you who think this is something worth getting upset over… You have my condolences. I enjoy their music and I wouldn’t support them if that’s what they stood for, but for right now I’m just enjoying their tunes.

 Song of Choice: Just a Kiss

 Miranda Lambert

 If anyone went to Go Fest, you’d know what I’m talking about. I love Miranda Lambert, she’s super spunky and I love her music. Her and Carrie are kind of peas in a pod, I heard that she even gave Carrie a motorcycle… But that might just be a rumor. Either way, I love her spunk.

 She’s an edgier version of Carrie Underwood, or so it seems like to me. Either way, I do have some similar tastes here. Check out this Carrie-Miranda duet.

 Song of Choice: The House That Built Me

 Yep In Case You Didn’t Notice… Girl Power!

Wish I Was Here…

Most people say I want to live in the mountains so I can be away from people… This is not true, I am a people person, but I really do hate traffic. That 405 freeway is killer.

But, like I said, I’m a huge people person. I love interacting, talking, and learning from people. It’s just that the mountains and the countryside are so beautiful, I can’t imagine not being there. Sure it’s cold and a little out of the way, but it’s gorgeous and I need to visit it at the very least…

It’s just so much green, and those purple majestic mountains are just calling my name. There’s a reason it made it’s way into our national anthem 🙂

Saving up so that one day I’ll make it there 🙂 here’s a few of the places I’d absolutely love to have.

Have a great rest of your Tuesday everyone!

Why You Should Live in the Country

Sure, city life can be fun, but I feel like Ariel from the Little Mermaid. I want moreeee! (Cue music and beautiful singing voice). I find myself tired of the constant struggle of the traffic and freeways of California, and I love Southern Food, as you might have seen.

I know that city folk and country folk were probably designed with different genetics, but there’s no reason to shut out the countryside completely, if you’re not dead set on living there, it’s a wonderful place to visit.

Still Not Convinced? Here’s a Few Reasons to Practice Your Southern Drawl…

1. You’re One With Nature

Once you get away from the city, you get to realize what made our ancestors fall in love with this place. The beautiful trees, the array of stars that are blocked by the city lights, and what seems to be like perfect weather.

Check out these beautiful properties for sale, sure you and I might both be saving up for a few years, but it’s worth it to get these beautiful estates, should that be your dream.

2. The Food!

Set some fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and mac and cheese in front of me, I’m one happy camper. Add in some biscuits and gravy and some sweet tea, I’m set for life. I love that all their food tends to be homemade, and it is the best.

You feel healthier eating all this homemade food, even if it does have a few more calories 😉 the nature is renewing to your spirit while the food renews your soul. What’s your favorite southern food? Here’s 101 awesome Southern recipes for you to try or experience when you visit the South.

3. You Get to Have Some Real Fun 😉

Sure, smartphones and watching movies are entertaining, but what really gets my heart soaring is the good ol’ country life. I haven’t done half of these activities yet, but they’re all up there. As it’s been said, if you don’t come home with mud on your clothes, your day hasn’t been fun enough…

What are my guilty pleasures? Well thanks for asking, I know you were very interested In my country likes. Here are some of mine: fishing, hiking, shooting, hunting, anything snow-related, cooking, dirt biking, boating, racing, and I love farm life.

My Perfect Lifestyle Is Only Hundreds of Miles Away…
