Thursday Thirteen #8


Thirteen Reasons I am glad to live in the South East (again!)

1. Sweet Ice Tea

2. Humidity

3. HOSPITALITY

4. Green grass and trees

5. Restaurants (Chick-fil-A, Fuddruckers, BoJangles, etc.)

6. Proximity to "home"

7. People who understand my use of "ya'll"

8. People who know how to spell "ya'll"

9. People who know how to make sweet tea.

10. Churches on every corner

11. My skin loves the humidity

12. People who understand HOSPITALITY

13. People who practice HOSPITATILITY


I have loved living on other areas of the country...I just really

missed the South East, and am very glad to be back here!!

I love living in the South East. I'm a North Easterner transplanted, and I couldn't be any happier!

Sandy C. said...

Awww, I grew up Florida (not really technically part of "the south"). I miss that humidity too these day. My skin is cracked and bleeding from the bitter winter here! Loved your list :)

Sandy Carlson said...

Humidity and hospitality--welcome, wonderful things. Great post.

Boy - and what is sweet tea?? As a Western Girl, I've only ever heard my Texas mil say, Swt Tay. Is it the same? ;)

Happy TT!

My TT is Food for thought.

Better you than me living there. I was go nuts living in the south east. Happy TT.

Bubba's Sis said...

Amen to each and every one! Love me some sweet tea and humidity!

Nicholas said...

There's a Chick-A-Fil near us. Very often they have someone standing around outside it dressed as a cow, which is always rather alarming!

Natalie said...

You really like hospitality I take it. LOL!

The Gal Herself said...

Sounds like you're happy to be home! What a happy TT. (Thanks for visiting mine)

Nicole Austin said...

And little or no snow! That's a big reason for me. LOL!

Happy TT!

Happy TT!

People who know that "all y'all" is the plural of "y'all."

Being called "Miss Di"

"Yes Ma'am" and "Yes Sir."

Fried okra.

Mr. Fabulous said...

Fuddruckers!!!

Honey, I think we spell it "y'all".

To live just where you want is vital. People often forget it isn't so much a house that is important, but what's inside, and OUTSIDE it.

Jane said...

AMEN! I was born and raised and still live in Georgia! I have been all around the world and there is NO place I would rather be!!
Welcome home ya'll!!

My Life With Boys said...

I'm not even from the south and I love all those things. I think I'm 'southern' at heart- just born in the north. ;)

Toni said...

I live in TN and think your list is right on!!

Jennifer said...

Thanks for visiting me. I also have a TT post on my family blog. It won't make you hungry I promise!

Chelle Y. said...

Oh, I love Chick-fil-A! I always make sure I go there when I visit relatives in North Carolina.

Misty Dawn said...

Huh... I've always spelled it "y'all"... I bet I say it just the same as you though ;-) just put the apostrophe in a different spot.
