A Southern Stance on Undergarments

I was tugging on my slip-spanks-like-sucker-in-thingy this morning and complaining about it to a friend and co-worker of mine about how I hate wearing these things and she said to me, "Well why do you have it on?"

I look at her and say in the sweetest southern accent I can achieve, "Well, every southern girl knows you can't wear a dress out of the house without the proper undergarments." She's from New Jersey and just gave me a strange look and shrugged her shoulders. I remember my mother would NEVER let me go to church without a slip under my dress even though in my teenage/college years I tried to be a rebel.

Our little conversation reminded me of a Daily Candy
e-mail I got a couple of weeks ago about "Your Slip is Showing", a company that sells these gorgeous things that would be hard to cover with a dress (see pic)! Pricey, but beautiful. I could probably figure out how to sew a couple of these myself, if I could sew.


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog. It's always great to meet someone new.

    Yes, you must wear your slip, even if the humidity is 98% and the temperature is soaring! I understand completely. I'm still trying to rebel on the hosiery though!

    Think of all the chatter that Princess Diana got from the Southern gals when she didn't have her slip on. (Remember the photo of her as a preschool teacher holding the two babies?)

  2. You just brought back memories of my mom screaming at me to get a slip on--ha--I don't think I have owned one in 15 years!

  3. Enjoy your blog and especially the slip stories. My college-age daughter recently had to defend her habit of wearing slips: "My mother makes me!"

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!

Madder than a Wet Hen

Sunday afternoon, I went to the grocery store, came home, left the car unlocked for hubs to get the groceries out (hey, I buy, he puts them up) and I forgot to lock the car back. Monday morning, I get into the car and everything has been pulled out of the glove compartment, middle console and backseat pockets.

Unfortunately, the little guy left his Nintendo DS Lite in the back because he was playing it at the yard sale this weekend. It's the only thing of value I left in the car and they got it. It just makes me so mad.

Now I feel like an idiot - I haven't reported it to the police yet because I don't want a lecture about locking my car doors at night - I know I'm supposed to, just forgot!!!!

Hubs is now obsessed with catching the criminals, sleeping with one eye open at night. I'd heard that the economy has caused more crime, but why did they have to steal from us, from my little guy?
