On a scale of 1 to 10

I'd give Savannah Sweet Tea a high 7/low 8. It really does taste like sweet tea, but with too strong of a lemon taste. I don't like lemon in my sweet tea. If you do, then you will really like this new wine. Now don't get me wrong, the 2 bottles that I bought will not go to waste - lemon taste or not!!
Have a great week!

Join the Southern Mommas Network . . .

and win this book!
In this humorous handbook, Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, host of All Things Southern, reveals the all-important lessons Southern Mamas teach their daughters. Readers will discover why blue eye shadow is trashy and learn to interpret regional dialect like the Southern Mama APB, a bulletin translated on Southern streets as: “Give your heart to Jesus, girl, because your butt is all mine!” Shellie carefully breaks down the teachings behind those famous manners and social graces through her firsthand observations and dry wit. Here’s everything you need to know from how to cope with the unexpected, compete in the Mr. Right Game Show, and raise children—to how to keep that marriage knot tied tight over time. Woven with quotes from real Southern Mamas and sprinkled with recipes and other Southern secrets, this book’s a bona-fide celebration of all things south of the Mason-Dixon Line.
Shellie has sent a signed copy of her book as a giveaway for one lucky member of the southern mommas network. It is super simple to win ..... All you need to do is join Southern Mommas and then leave a comment below letting me know you are a new or current member of the site. We will close out the giveaway on Friday Feb. 26th, 2010. Only members who leave a comment below will be entered in the contest. Good luck Ladies :)

My Wedding!

I am jumping on the bandwagon and participating in Sweet Tea & Biscuits' Sips of the South series . . . this week it's Southern Weddings!!
This was both of ours second wedding so we wanted more of a casual wedding. Our wedding was so much fun and meant so much more because of our friends involved. The location was my friend's gorgeous backyard. Our bartender was another girlfriend (and for a short time my boss was back there bartending!). Photographer was a friend and the officiant was a friend - it all meant so much more to us.

It was wonderful having my daughter as my maid of honor and she also "gave me away." We walked in to the song "Jessica's Soneta" from the movie "Man from Snowy River." She thought it was neat that the song shared her name.

Hubby's son was his best man. Very casual . . . Noah got to wear shorts!

And what southern gal wouldn't want to have 2 drinks in her hand?! We had been to a wine festival and bought 30+ bottles of wine and had them at the reception. Our guests loved having a sampling of all different types of Virginia wines. I'm so glad we did that.

We also had paper lanterns hanging from the trees and white lights on trees. It was beautiful.
The next morning we headed to Charleston, SC and Kiawah Island for our honeymoon. I wouldn't change a thing about our wedding!
