I wouldn't be a good southern woman if I didn't love Paula Deen. She reminds me of so many women that were important to me when I was a child. I love her southern cooking. I love her cute little accent. I love her sons. Ahem. She's just all around adorable. Paula, Stacy and Clinton all occupy most of the space on my DVR. Sister loves Paula even more than I do. Friday nights, I let her stay up a little late to watch Paula's show with me. We talk about the recipes and which we'd like to make. We talk about how pretty her hair is. If you don't tell anyone, I'll admit to you that there may have been a time when I told Sister that it was ok to call her Grandma. Moving on.
If you aren't already reading Sharon's blog and checking out Mom Generations, stop what you're doing and go there now. I adore Sharon. She's classy, beautiful, hilarious and has a relationship with her daughters that every Mom dreams of. She once wrote about "Rules for Raising Daughters" and I've read her list so many times that I've almost got it memorized. She's the kind of lady you want to be like and you desperately want to know better. Every time I read her blog, I come away wondering if she'd be willing to adopt me. As for fashion? Sharon could teach Stacy & Clinton a thing or two. Just look at her. (I'm purposely overlooking the fanny pack incident here, for the sake of her daughters!) Want to know something else I love about her? She is still so madly in love with her sweetie of 32 years. She knows he's the hottest guy around isn't afraid to say it. I love that.
There you have it, friends. This is my top three BFF wanna-be list. Feel free to share your list with me because I'm always looking to expand my list. I'm friendly like that.
