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!"

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

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!
