I do have a little expertise in this area. If you are a new reader, let me explain. I was born in New Orleans. And I spent my last years in high school living in the middle of the swamp, literally.
See here--> This is a picture my mom sent me two days ago, of a little friend in their back yard...
And my during my college years, I got to experience the good ole capitol of Louisiana in Baton Rouge. I've spent my whole life in Louisiana up until the summer of 2011 when I moved to North Alabama. And it is not the same. It is still southern, but a different kind of southern than what I am used to. The same goes for Louisiana, see here-->
Where I am from people say things like "How's ya mama 'n' them" and "We're fixin to leave." It's a place with lots of soul and culture. Here (In AL), people say things like "Oh, she's a hoot," and "Oh, bless his heart." I have never heard these words in the state of Louisiana. There is something about the deep south that is a whole different way of life and meaning.
So, since I have my moments when I am feeling homesick leave it to pinterest to crack me up and give me a piece of what I'm missing out on.
Things people have told me I say:
"I axed you if you wanted to go?"
"Get that out of the zink"
"I'm fixin to go"
"I am on the neutral ground side"
So, who wants to hear a VLog? I'm tempted to do it...
So, without further adieu, my favorite Louisiana themed pinterest finds!
Well, except me... But not by choice really
Okay are you sick of my southern loving yet?
