Nice to meet you

Over the weekend, Mr. Potts & I watched The Blind Side. Before we watched it, Mr. Potts had spoken to his mom & step-dad. They told him that we would love the movie & that Leigh Anne reminded them of me. I wasn't quite sure what to expect, but was ready to look for any similarities.

Similar? They could have modeled that part after me! I started grinning the moment she started speaking & then laughed out loud when Mr. Potts looked over at me, grinned and announced, "Yep, that's you!".

When Leigh Anne was in her car & was honked at she responded with, "Don't get your panties in a wad." So me.

Described by SHEKNOWS as: "Equal parts firecracker, strong Southern woman, inspiration, motherly to all, pragmatic." This is me to a "T".

I know what I know, know what I want & know how I expect things to be done. I have a generous heart & reach out to those hurting or in need. I tirelessly work to make people feel comfortable & at home.

I found it funny that this movie was so spot with regards to my personality.

Is there a character in a movie or tv show that represents you?

Also, had to share two pictures from this weekend.

The first is me & Mr. Potts - gonna have to frame this one.

We celebrated a dear friend's 35th birthday & there were such fun party favors involved!

I think he pulled the "stache" off fairly well!

Leigh Anne is such a fun person! Not surprised you are like him...
Where is your stache?

Molly Lou Gifts said...

I definitely would associate her with you. That is so funny and Sandra Bullock is a great person to depict you.

Those pictures of you are great. Why didn't you sport the party favor as well...that could be framed right next to the first pic! :)

Have a great day.

Lucy Marie said...

I haven't seen the movie yet, but now when I do watch it, I know I'll be thinking of you!

Brittany said...

Now I'm definitely going to have to see that movie!! The best movie that would describe the relationship between me and my mom would be "Because I Said So". That movie is our relationship. I had friends calling me and asking if I had seen it because it reminded them of us!
