My first post!

My redneckedness comes to me from my father-that my husband
& I live with, in Louisiana. My sister and her family live not far away, and my nephews are frequent visitors to our chaotic home. We have a typical southern haunted house, and the required abandoned car out in the driveway. Just to spice things up, we threw in some fishing poles leaning up against the house. Our outdoor seating consists of the back seat of the abandoned car, as well as an old toilet-formerly a resident of our home. This plush, comfy seating provides us front row seats to our very own petting Zoo. We also sit here while observing the target practice that we do, when we can afford the bullets.

We get rides to the gym in the back of a rusty old pick-up that provides ample wind "redneck air conditioning", to aid in the cooling off of the sweaty, rank, gym bodies.

I added deer meat to hamburger helper, and made a delicious cobbler made from berries picked from the yard. Walmart is my favorite hang out spot, and I love "half price drinks" from Sonic. I would think my life was sad, if it weren't for all the entertainment provided by such things. A far cry from the shopping trips to Nordstroms, and dining at The Cheesecake Factory. Life is different, but I am enjoying it.


  1. OMG you live in Louisiana, I love that big old walmart out there. I think I saw you on that web site called cool for school.

  2. The deer meat Hamburger Helper sounds pretty awesome to me, as does the cobbler---yum!

    I'm jealous of the target shooting too, I love it. I think you should post the picture of you shooting in heels and PINK sweats, to show how you're meeting the rednecks in the middle :)
