Some ladies have Louis Vuitton, Chanel or Tory Burch bags. I carry bags of M&M’s. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good bag, but M&M’s will never have to be updated to the newest, version and you don’t have to take a loan out to buy them. When it comes to carrying a bag, with my bag of M&M’s in it, Brighton, Kate Spade, Coach, or my favorite, a good Disney “Beauty and the Beast” bag, will do.

From the title you can guess I’m a Southern Woman for the love of M&M’s. I also have other things in my life that make me happy. Southern Ladies are all about sweet tea, a great cup of coffee, fresh baked goods, a good book, family and religion. M&M’s go great with all of these things. I know your thinking, “How does M&M’s and religion go together?” Okkkkkk, I’ve ate M&M’s during church. Some people chew gum or suck on mints.

Let me be honest. I’m a southern woman but not your typical southern woman. Your probably thinking I’m a southern woman, like from the movies, Steel Magnolias or The Notebook, etc. I’m not like any of them. I consider myself the black sheep of the family. I’m shy to a point. I dress older than I am. My grammar is all over the place. I’m sad more days out of the year than happy. I’ve been told I have no ambitions in life. I’m overweight but not overly obese. I’m not coordinated. I’m afraid to ask for anything, because I’m afraid of rejection. I stay to myself, mostly because I don’t want to disappoint those around me, or I’m afraid what others may ask of me.

I can tell you that I am a southern woman with a huge heart. I’m patient and kind. I care about the feelings of others more than my own, even if that means my own feelings get hurt in the process. I’ll give you my last dollar, if it will help you or make you happy. I do things for others, even when I don’t want to. I love buying gifts for people. Who doesn’t love a present. I love reading books, cooking and baking. Most southern woman are so much more outgoing than I, but I believe that I was placed on earth and God had a purpose for me.

I don’t presume to know everything. I don’t strive to be perfect. I’m just a southern woman who spells things wrong, uses the wrong words in sentences, pretends to know the meaning of words that I’ve never heard of and loves her M&M’s. If you visit I can make you a mean glass of sweet tea and I may just offer you a couple of M&M’s.
