Rabbit chasing

Hey!  I’m glad you’re here!  This post is part of a 31 Day writing challenge hosted by The Nester.  During the month of October, I’m writing on Southern A Way of Life.  I will be back to my ‘regular’ posts in November.  Consider pushing that follow button to the right for all my latest posts.  Thanks y’all!

31 Day Button 2013.001Day Three

I spent a year living outside of Washington D.C. when I was in high school.  Technically speaking, that area of the country is considered the South but it is so far removed from what I would consider southern.  These supposed Southerners were asking me, a fellow Southerner, if I went barefoot all the time and had chickens.  The math teacher also had me work problems out loud on the board that contained the numbers 5 and 9 just so he could hear my accent.  Oh, the tragedy at 14 years old!   He did it because he liked me, I think.  But, that kind of teasing would probably be considered bullying in this day and age.

Misconceptions and stereotypes exist all over this nation but most only carry a kernel of truth.  Doodlebug and I attempt to  talk about these misconceptions and then, we started rabbit chasing to fashion.  The video ended up being more about what Southern women wear than misconceptions about us.  I hope you enjoy it!

What do you wear where you live?  Do you rock the capris and flip flops, too?

Blessings,

Mimi

Youtube, Seriously?!

Hey!
Last summer, I posted about decorating my daughter’s dorm room in the sorority house.  Doodlebug’s room was a favorite as the potential new members toured the house for rush.

Here is how the room looked on move-in day, August 2011.

In April, the Residence Hall people came to take pictures.  Doodlebug mentioned it but she was sick that day and I was preoccupied with trying to get her better.  I had forgotten all about the room being photographed until a few weeks ago when Doodlebug pulled it up on the internet and casually said, “Mama, do ya wanna see my room online?”  I was like.. What?!
(I thought they were just putting a picture in a brochure.)

Her room was chosen by the university to feature as a sample room for residence hall housing. You can see the virtual tour here!
I guess I’m famous now….I’m on Youtube : )

Blessings,

Mimi
