ADORABLE! Good luck with the candy thing, & not that I'm endorsing violence but I'd love to see someone punch someone for this economic mess! You rock Sister friend so glad I found you through this carnival thingy.
Blessings And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Mama Belle, isn't this fun? Linda did a great job of creating this for all of us. I am just a little over '38' lol and I am still waiting on my bood lift. When you get yours let me know how you did :) I hope you have a great birthday tomorrow....

Sarah@Life in the Parsonage said...

Ummm...is it your birthday tomorrow?!? :)

I heart you so much, and the list...well it may as well be mine...replace Beau with Ben and it's done.

You want me to punch Nancy for you? Cause that's the kind of stuff friends do for each other ;)

Jill said...

These videos are cracking me up! I have come over a few times from Sarah in the Parsonage and enjoyed your blog, but this is priceless! Happy birthday!!

Colored With Memories said...

great video! i was laughing about punching nancy...so funny.

oh, and i had the same issue w/my ads when blogging about potty training issues. fun times!

Moriah @ Please Pass the Salt said...

First of all, very very nice to "meet" you! :)

Your list is hilarious. (Although, I don't think you need anything on your face! Seriously!)

Rachel said...

You are a natural!!!

1. I'm with you on this one. Except mine is more like 25 pounds.

2. I've been wanting to punch her for about a year now. She just keeps giving me reasons to want to do it.

4. Yes. Must happen. I volunteer the city of NOLA.

7. Girl, you do not need Botox! I hope and pray I look as good as you when I get to 37 (oh wait, that's tomorrow - 36!).

8. We all need that. Thanks for the reminder!

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Ok, my only request is...PLEASE take me along with you when you punch Nancy in the face. :)

LOVE your list, girl. And I agree with Moriah...your face looks fantastic, you don't need an ounce of Botox.

I'm a cancer survivor and every birthday is truly a blessing...so many blessings to you and yours as you CELEBRATE!

sara said...

Happy birthday tomorrow!!! I would like to do a lot of those same things....I guess it would have to be by my 48th birthday...yikes that sounds old!

Wendi @ Every Day Miracles said...

I just love you - I mean I did before, but punching Nancy and Depends adds - just great hilarity (is that a word...did I spell it right...it's not though is it). Any way, great job!!

Amy B said...

Candy? Good luck, girl.
Nancy? I'll bail you out.
Botox and boobs? I'm jealous.
PTF? You deserve a break.

I hope you have a fabulous birthday!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

OKay...you sound just like Reese Witherspoon...and I can't tell you how many times I have wasted at night just trying to sit there and make my voice and accent sound like Reese Witherspoon! Just thought i'd tell you that!

Next...I want to thank you for putting me down as someone you want to meet...because DITTO I feel the same!

Third...your video...hilarious, totally laughed at goal number one, because it's mine too!

Fourth...I am entering the giveaway!

Bye for now!

2nd Cup of Coffee said...

The Pelosi thing was so random I 'bout fell off my chair laughing. Also the way you demonstrated "beating down" your flesh. Mama Belle, you are an original piece of art that I am so glad I found out there in Bllogityville. I heart you.

Kim said...

I love your posts! Your video cracked me up - I couldn't stop laughing at your list!! You are so much fun! Wish I knew you in real life!

Susan said...

Nice to meet ya! Ok, I have a crazy question. Have you ever thought about training for a marathon? Yeah, stop laughing. I am serious! Anyway, wrinkles? I didn't see any wrinkles. Anyway enjoyed the video. Keep up the good work. Would enter the awesome giveaway, but I live overseas and postage ain't fun. Have a great day,
Susan

BaronessBlack said...

Very funny! I love your accent!
As a little incentive I used to write out vouchers for my husband that he would have to do one of his household jobs to activate. The vouchers ranged from me cooking his favourite dinner, to him having an evening to himself, to bedroom requests! It worked!
Then we flooded and had to start again - but that's another story!

Tiff said...

Meg Ryan got Botox, and you know what happened to her...
I would totally hold Pelosi down for ya and then sit in the jail cell and laugh at how bad we were but how good it felt to jab her in the face! lol

Kim said...

Love your video but just your header would bring me back. Love the brown and blue and in fact bought a new striped quilt in these exact colors just before we moved!
You are too funny and I can't wait to read previous posts and get to know you better.
Your list is great although where you get the idea you need botox is beyond me. You're just a beautiful southern Belle!

THE ROOST said...

Great job! That was so funny and fun to watch! Happy birthday tomorrow:)

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

Mama Belle, your face looks like it stayed in your 20's! Botox? I think not.

And for myself, I'd like to double your first goal. :-)

You are so funny and I really enjoy reading you, but it just doesn't get any better than "hearing" and "seeing," does it?

Great post!

DidiLyn said...

That was so throughly enjoyable. Even though we don't know each other, and this is my very first visit here, I find myself wanting to be invited to your bloggy friends get-together.
I could be a con artist, or O.J. Simpson, you don't know. But, hey! I could be Nancy Palousi and you could punch me in the face!
See, lookin' on the bright side.
So invite me already.
Your new BFF,
Diane

Tammy said...

Girl, I totally enjoyed your video. I'd like to be your accomplices on the Nancy Pelosi thing. 'nuff said.

Hope you have a very happy birthday!

Mary said...

Fun video! Forget #1 - You look great in that 15 lbs and I am quite certain that your husband loves you just the way you are!
;-)

Happy Birthday!

Kim said...

Thanks for stopping by. No, I don't sound very southern since my "formative" years (4-14) were spent in the Midwest. But I am most definitely a southern girl from birth and at heart. As the wife of a pastor (and now missionary), hospitality comes with the territory and that's where I most get to practice my southern-ness. I LOVE having people over. [And the occasional y'all slips out :-)]

Oh. My. Word!
You are such a HOOOOOT Girl!
I can't wait to come back and eat this site up!

Are you DYING LAUGHING at me for sending 4 comments now?! I am a little slow on the uptake Ma'am. Sorry.
I'm almost 40...that's my excuse.

Growin' with it! said...

nu, uh, uhh...*shaking my finger with my other hand on my hip*...my bday isn't until october 27th. so poor thing...YOU'RE older. i'm sure glad i met you today and i look forward to stopping by here more often.

Happy Bday tomorrow...hope you get to sleep in!?

kspinning said...

What a cute, soon to be 37yr old, mom you are! Loved your video and your whole blog. I'm so glad to have "met" you today!

Good luck with the running... :)

Becky said...

Hey that was great! You're funny and I love your list! It was very inspirational. :-)

Birdie said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Didja get everything on your list? Today IS yoru birthday right? Ididn't jsut have some kind of moment did I? I think you said it was.
Oh and I must say for you to lose 15 pounds would be a tragedy. You MUST be crazy. Loved how you never mentioned giving up your coffee which I'm sure you take with no sugar, no cream. MmmHmmm.
*L*
I'm LOVIN' this video thing. You could start your own show!

Birdie said...

IDEA: How about you give us a topic and we can all do a vid on the same topic? Oooh that would be fun!

Greg C said...

Wonderful video. I have some comments. First off Happy birthday. Second, not nagging is impossible for a woman. You are born with it, develop it, use it. I started the running thing last week and after seeing my video I am uping the miles per day. I am so fat. :(

carrie said...

sounds like a good list. except for the running part. I had been walking to the DVD for awhile and foolishly thought about running. Bad idea. My shins hurt for days.

I wish you better luck than me.

But I did lose 15 lbs by walking and not eating my kids' candy.

Rachel said...

I totally agree with your first 3! I am not ready to give up the candy though. I just bought Junior Mints for my Churches Trunk or Treat. Who am I kidding? I bought them for me! When else can you get a perfectly little sized Jr. Mint Box? My commitment will be to only eat one a day. That is reasonable isn't it!

Heth said...

You are friggin adorable. A.Dor.Bul.

Cindy Swanson said...

Hi Mama Belle! I loved your video...it really made me feel like I got to meet you. It's also won me over to the point that I will DEFINITELY be back! Great job. :)

Cassandra @ Tripping Around The Sun said...

Ok. I spit my noodles all ovr the place when you said you wanted to punch nacny Pelosi in the face. That is hilarious!!! You are a hoot. :)

Alana said...

Hey There! I popped over from Jackie's blog and had to see your I See What Your Saying video. I have yet to watch them all! Anyway, sounds like a great list! I recently started running in hopes of it helping me lose weight as well. Plus, I'm doing lots of other "no fun" things to aid in that. But the running I think is helping, so there's some encouragement for ya! Anyway, I've gone on long enough...nice to meet you!

PJ said...

Fun!! Violent, but fun!! Can we make a collection to pay your bail on the N.P, thing? It could be Linda at 2nd cup's next project!! Just kidding!!! And seriously, you do not need anything for that face!! Love the animation. Your rock.

Deven said...

That list was great!! Thanks for posting!
