Southern Hospitality

Our bus takes us to Georgia today, where we'll visit Bebe at her lovely blog "Peaches and Dreams." http://bebespeachesanddreams.blogspot.com/ Bebe has some gorgeous photographs there, and she sure has an eye for a flea-market treasure! Enjoy her blog for a bit, while I take off to visit my sister. She lives with her husband in a suburb of Atlanta. (Sure wish I could visit her for real, but not in the hot summer!)

Well, wasn't Georgia beautiful? Let's get back on the bloggy bus again--sweet tea is being served! Alas, I have yet to find a blog I like from Alabama. I'm sure they are out there, but the ones that even come close to my criteria (nice, colorful, non-political, respectful) are sports blogs, and I have NO interest in sports. If you know of a great blog, lmk, and we'll head back down here again! But we'll stop and have a picnic along the way, and marvel at beautiful scenes like this:

I don't know where this is, I just found it on a site about Alabama and I think it's very pretty!
So, anyhoo...we're off to Mississippi! This is where we find one of my favorite blogs, "Country Romance from the Heart."
http://countryromance.blogspot.com/ Brenda shares so much about her life and her family, through beautiful photos and posts. Do you know, her handsome son Rian serves our country?
It's getting awfully hot down here, but there's just one more stop. Honestly, I don't know where in the south it is, but we just have to check out Mrs. Fussypants' site--it's too funny to miss! http://fussypants.typepad.com/whatsmartmommiesknow/ Join Fussy as she teaches us how to "Fight the Frump," and how to ruin our lives! (All in good fun!) But first, stop and say 'congratulations' and goo-goo over her darling, sweet, adorable, yummy new baby!
See ya next time, folks--I think we need to rent a private jet and head north again!

Hot? It was 110 over the week end here in South Texas and 80% humidity. That is why I love AC. LOL Thanks for your visits.
I love reading about you.

I just discovered that you had featured my blog on your blog ~ thank you so much for that!!! You are so sweet to say such nice things about my site. I appreciate your kindness! :) I think it is a wonderful idea to take a blogging tour of the U.S.; what fun!! I'm going to go visit some of the other sites you have mentioned.

Lots of Southern Hugs, Bebe :)

P.S. I really love those big beautiful flowers you have up on your header ~ gorgeous!!

Hi Shadow,
It was ruff. LOL I hate going to the doctor. They poke me all over. I was so happy to be out of there.
Thanks for visiting me. I love vistors.

Well, at least the mention of Alabama was enough to get its most famous song stuck in my head. ;)

And the last blog was especially fun. If I was anywhere close to mommyhood, I'd be all over that "Fight the Frump" thing!

Diane said...

Ditto on the visiting. Thanks for stopping bye to see my radish.
