Don't Get Your Tinsel In A Tangle

Please tell me that ya'll have seen "Steel Magnolias,"  cause if not, your offending my southernness.  Ha!  No really, "Steel Magnolias" is one of my favorite movies of all time, and it's for lines like, "Don't get your tinsel in a tangle."  Ya'll that's classic!

In addition to great one-liners, I love the movie because the ladies are a little bit tacky.  In the south, tacky is okay...as long as it's classy.  Confused?  Then you're not from around here.  Anyway, Ellie got a shirt over the weekend that I wanted her to wear today, but I didn't have any of her jeans clean.  

All I could find were black tights, and ya'll that's tacky without class.  However, I did have a red and white polka dot Minnie Mouse skirt to put on over the leggings.  She sorta looked like Bernice in Designing Women when she wore her tree skirt to the hospital...anyone?!  

So, yes.  Ellie wore a tacky skirt, but the bow and shoes made it classy...and by southern standards there is northing wrong with that at all.  Of course, if I could stay up on my laundry and had clean jeans, I wouldn't be writing this post.
