Hey everyone! I'm Carrie and I'm 19 and from Mississippi and I go to Mississippi University for Women (admitting men since 1982!) I have lived in MS my entire life. Though it can become dull at times I wouldn't want to be anywhere else because this is where my friends and family are. is anyone else from the MS area?

hey girls!
my name is Megan. i'm 20. born and raised in New Orleans! but now i go to the University of Alabama! Roll Tide!
my life is in the south, and i love it here. i don't even feel the urge to travel to most other parts of the country! and wherever i eventually live, marry, raise a family, and start teaching, it will be in the South. cause it's better in the South! i mean seriously, who else has better traditions, and has more fun? and what's better than having that rich, southern drawl? living in New Orleans, i didn't really have it, but after i got to Tuscaloosa, i definitely pick up the accent! and i'm proud!
anyways, love y'all and God bless!

Here is my required post: My name is Melissa, I'm 33 years old, I live in Florida, and am moving to North Carolina in a few months.

I see it's MANDATORY to post a banner. I read that there are a few to choose from, but I don't see where.

Southern Girls! [03 Mar 2005|03:59pm]

[ mood | amused ]

Someone once noted that a Southerner can get away with the most awful kind of insult just as long as it's prefaced with the words, "Bless her heart" or "Bless his heart." As in, "Bless his heart, if they put his brain on the head of a pin, it'd roll around like a BB on a 6-lane highway."
I was thinking about this the other day when a friend was
telling about her new transplanted northern friend who was upset because her toddler is just beginning to talk and he has a southern accent. My friend, who is very kind and, bless her heart, cannot do a thing about those thighs of hers, was justifiably miffed about this. After all, this woman had CHOSEN to move to the
South a couple of years ago. Can you believe it?" said her friend, "A child of mine is going to be "taaaallllkkin liiiike thiiiissss."

Now, don't get me wrong. Some of my dearest friends are
from the North, bless their hearts. I welcome their perspective, their friendships, and their recipes for authentic Northern Italian food. I've even gotten past their endless complaints that you can't find good bread down here. And the heathens, bless their hearts, don't like cornbread!

We've already lost too much. I was raised to say
"swayya," not swear, but you hardly ever hear anyone say that anymore, I swayya you don't. And I've caught myself thinking twice before saying something is "right much," "right close," or "right good" because non-natives think this is right funny indeed.

I have a friend from Bawston, bless her heart, who thinks
it's hilarious when I say I've got to "carry" my daughter to the doctor or "cut off" the light. She also gets a giggle every time I am "fixin'" to do something. And, bless their hearts, they don't even know where "over yonder" is, or what "I reckon" means!

My personal favorite was my aunt, saying, "Bless her heart, she can't help being ugly, but she could've stayed home."

Southern girls know bad manners when they see them:

1. Drinking straight out of a can.
2. Not sending thank you notes.
3. Velvet after February.
4. White shoes before Memorial Day or after Labor Day

Southern girls always say:

1. "Yes, ma'am."
2. "Yes, sir."

Southern girls have a distinct way with fond expressions:

1. "Y'all come back now, ya heaah."
2. "Well, bless your heart."
3. "Drop by when you can."
4. "How's your mama?"
5. "Love your hair."

Southern girls know their three R's:

1. Rich
2. Richer
3. Richest

Southern girls know everybody's first name:

1. Honey
2. Darlin'
3. Shugah

Southern girls know the movies that speak to their

1. "Gone With the Wind"
2. "Fried Green Tomatoes"
3. "Driving Miss Daisy"
4. "Steel Magnolias"

Southern girls know their cities dripping with Southern

1. Hotlanta or Adlanna (Atlanta as outsiders say)
2. Richmon
3. Challston
4. S'vannah
5. Birminham
6. Nawlins'
7. Oh! and that city in Alabama ? It's pronounced

Southern girls know the three deadly sins:

1. Bad hair
2. Bad manners
3. Bad blind dates

G.R.I.T.S. = Girls Raised in The South!

Now you run along, Shugah, and send this to someone else
Raised In The South, i.e., Southern Belles, or ANY females aspiring to
be GRITS. Even the northern ones, "Bless Their Hearts".

That Reminds me. I have a rubber stamp that says "Just
because your children were born in the South does not make them Southerners. After all, if a cat had kittens in the oven, that wouldn't make them biscuits."

South Carolina [18 Feb 2005|06:31pm]

Hi all, I'm Leanne. I'm 20 years old, and I live in South Carolina.

Right now I'm a Junior at the University of South Carolina, but I lived in Virginia Beach for 10 years, and lived in Hoover, AL 9 years before that. Haha, I guess I consider myself a southern girl through and through.

Is it cool if I make my own banner to put in my userinfo? I'll be more than happy to post it on here as well so that anyone else can use it, too.
