Southern Belle Contemplates: National Parks

As someone who has felt the wind on her check at the Wright Brothers Memorial.  Who has seen the beauty of the Grand Tetons.  Who has watched in awe as Old Faithful erupted at Yellowstone.  Who has looked into the carved eyes of Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt, and Jefferson at Mount Rushmore.  Who has driven into the depths of the Badlands.  Who has spent a lazy summer day in the Great Smokey Mountains.  It saddens me deeply that these great treasures we know as our National Parks and Memorials are closed right now and others cannot take in their beauty too.

Southern Belle Contemplates: Bye-Bye Isand Blooms

I knew this day would come but that doesn’t make it any easier.  My favorite Vera Bradley pattern of all time is being discontinued.  I don’t know why I like this pattern best but I have bought many things in this pattern.  It’s a summer pattern but it works all year-long.  It is Island Blooms.  To me it looks like it was made for a Southern Belle.  Good Bye Island Blooms, I’m going to miss you!

Southern Belle Contemplates: High School Football

Going to a High School that didn’t have a football team means I never went to High School football games when I was younger.  So now I have a cousin playing High School football for a different High School which means I am now going to High School football games.  I have been to two games in two weeks.  I really don’t know what I am watching but it is nice having someone to cheer on.  I think I will be going to a lot more High School football games in the next four years.

Southern Belle Contemplates: Fifty Shades of Gray The Movie

Last week who will play Christian Gray and Anastasia Steele in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Gray was announced.  Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson.  I do not know anything about the two of them but I am kind of excited about them playing the main characters.  I think it is great they picked two unknowns and not two people who already have a star following, like Alexis Bledel and Matt Bomer.  Don’t get me wrong I think they are both good actors in their own right but I just think it is going to be better having fresh faces as the leads.  Now just to know who will be playing Gideon and Eva.  I can’t wait for the movie to come out now.  I want to see how Hunnam and Johnson do portraying Christian and Anastasia.
