The Belle Necessities

Published March 27, 2013 by jrm17

Now, technically, I am not a belle.  I have never been introduced into society because that just ain’t the way we do things around here.  Nevertheless, I am a belle in every other way.  Trust me when I say that no one has read The Southern Belle Primer (or Why Paris Hilton Could Never Be A Kappa Kappa Gamma) more than me.  So, I’ve been in a serious shopping mood lately and pinning like crazy, so here’s the list of things that a modern day belle just needs to have.

All that’s left after a weekend in the house.

Lord, sometimes it sucks being a girl.  I’ve been having some serious cravings for sweets lately.  Ones that may have ended in my eating a whole bag of Reese’s peanut butter chips after devouring basically three helpings of cheese fries.  Friday, thanks to my dear pregnant cousin eating one, left me wanting a BLT real bad….followed by a lemon blueberry pound cake.  You may remember me complaining that the blueberry scones I had over spring break sucked in comparison to the best ones I ever had.  Well, this cake recipe was good enough to make up for it and all the disappointment I faced.

Bye, Bye Buckey :-(

I’m going to tell you a story today about a tragedy that recently happened in our small little town.  If you are an animal lover, then I’ll warn you now: you are probably going to cry.  There’s love.  There’s comedy.  There’s tears.  This story really has it all.  And it’s all about a dear deer named Buckey.

One of the last time's anyone got to love Buckey

Ring the (Frozen) Dinner Bell

Published March 20, 2013 by jrm17

Once upon a time there was a girl who had a lot of late classes and never got to eat dinner at home.  That girl would be me, and as much as it annoyed me, I learned the magic that is frozen dinners.  I also learned all about, which ones are good for vegetarians and which are not, even though I am no longer one.  So, if you are a college student like me, trying to eat better and cheaper than the crap on campus, or just someone who lives off these things (which honestly I don’t think I blame you), here’s a rundown of the big three (for me at least): Lean Cuisine, Smart Ones, and Healthy Choice.

Candyland Or Just Candy Perferably

Sucker Fail

Sucker Fail

Thanks to my dear little Beezy having a sweet tooth with a penchant for suckers and Sweet Memories, the old fashioned candy store, going out of business, I have been on a massive candy binge lately.  There’s been suckers too big for my mouth, suckers turning my mouth blue (What can I day?  I’m like a child when it comes to blue candy.), a whole bag of sour gummy worms, and much more.  There was even a trip specially made to the candy store to fulfill my newfound (or new-re-found) candy love.  Anyway, this has got me thinking about the best candy.
