She Spent Way Too Much Time In Tennessee!!

There have been little clues showing up that lead me to believe that Matt's Hillbilly gene is a little more dominant in Vivi then previously thought. They have since come to surface after their trip down South to Matt's Grandmother's funeral.

1) She has always loved the movie Cars, but now she wants to watch NASCAR.

2) She now wants her hair "Bigger" each morning.

3) When ever we ask her what she wants for dinner, she replies "Butter beans and sweet tea."

4) Stacy (Vivi's imaginary friend, who seems to be a bit more redneck) is getting herself into some pretty weird "Jerry Springer" situations lately.

5) She has started saying "Y'all" a lot more.

6) Although she loves all the Golden Girls, she now says that Blanche is her favorite.

7) She won't wear shoes and socks anymore.

And finally,

She sat down at dinner yesterday and this is what she told us.

Vivi: "Me and Gage (her cousin) are going to get married."

Me: "Oh yeah?"

Vivi "Yep, He's going to wear a tie and I'm going to wear a dress and we are going to put a balloon in the sky."

Me: "OK?"

Vivi: "You have to come because Stacy is going to make the cake."

Me: "When is this blessed event going to happen?"

Vivi: "Tomorrow, but Stacy's mommy and daddy are in jail again, so she has to bake it at our house."

Me: "Why are they in jail?"

Vivi: "They hit Stacy and her little brother (you ready for this?) Gummy."

Me: "Then I guess they better stay with us."

Vivi: "Yeah"

I am never letting her out of the state again without me!!!!

Our little bride and groom! They're registered at Gymboree and Toy's R Us, in case you wanted to know.

Is Viv from West Virginia? You know, because of the marrying the cousin thingy,,.

OHH, how unpolitically correct of me... shush my mouth!

Funny in my mind said...

I think some of my employees are from there. Actually, Staceys parents work for us. Or they did, before the unfortunate incarceration.....

LadyStyx said...

Maybe some of those genes come from N'Awrlin's near the Lafitte area. I know for a fact there is some "unusually close ties" in that area. As for Tennessee...well the hubby's from there and it seems like he's realted one way or another to most in his town.

LMAO@registered at Toys R Us.

I wish Viv much luck with her quest for bigger hair and much happiness with hubby-cousey Gage.

*goes back to his butter beans and sweet tea breakfast*

Being from Kentucky - I totally cracked up at all of this!!!

Lacey said...

This has me laughing out loud! I love the part about putting the balloon in the sky, that's precious!

It sounds like Stacy and Gummy are much better off with you guys! And congrats on your new son-in-law-nephew!

(By they way, have you ever seen that redneck wedding show? Dude... so hilarious. Hey, maybe Vivi could get some fun ideas! Haha.)

Just beware...if she suddenly wakes up and wants you to take her to get "Mall Bangs," then she's got a LOT more of that Tennessee pedigree in her!

Heather said...

Are you making this up?

'Cause if you are, man, you're good.

And if you're not, well, I'm still cracking up over here.

'Cause I'm from the West side of Ohio, and my hair used to be 6 inches tall, and my daddy loved him some Nascar, and redneck-marrying-cousins were a dime a dozen in dem parts.

Just sayin'. If Vivi and Gabe get kicked out of Chicago, they'll have plenty of places to choose from :)

Now I'm off to Gymboree. I hear they have a great new pattern out...

Heather said...

Oops, I meant Vivi and Gage...

Although if she would like to meet Gabe, that could be arranged.

Jamie said...

Too cute! What's wrong with NASCAR? I like nascar....Matt Kenseth if from abuout 40 minutes from where I live...That's why I stay up to date on it really...that and Kasey Kahne's pretty blue eyes.

P.S. I've got you added in to my blog list at the new place now.

Kimmy said...

That's friggen hilarious!!!!

PetalsYoga said...

I'm actually from Tennessee originally and I don't let my daughter go back there for this very reason! Great post!!!

ChicagoLady said...

LMAO! Thank you for the laughs tonight.

Nascar is an AWESOME sport, don't let anyone tell Vivi anything different. And she simply must be a Dale Jr. Fan. Why? Because I decided, that's why!

If she was really bringin' out them redneck genes, and you were sitting down to dinner, that must have been lunch, right? 'Cause lunch is dinner, and dinner is supper, you know what I'm sayin'?

I wonder if some part of the family is from Arkansas, because I heard they have a lot of married cousins down there too, lol.
