In The South It's A Religion

I would like to introduce to y'all Mandy Sue, the author of In The South It's A Religion blog.  Mandy Sue now lives in Memphis after attending Loyola University New Orleans, deep in the heart of SEC territory.  Her college did not have a football team and Mandy felt like she was missing out on a great Southern what's a Southern girl to do?  Well, to get herself interested in becoming a football fan, she started a blog with the title from the line in Designing Woman, straight from Miss Julia Sugarbaker.
“In the East, football is a cultural experience. In the Midwest, it’s cannibalism. In the West, it’s a tourist attraction. But in the South, it’s a religion.”

Mandy Sue and I are both lovers of afternoon tea and I love that she knows the difference between afternoon tea and high tea!  {Afternoon tea is held in the afternoon and has three distinct courses:  savories, scones, and sweets.  Most Americans refer to afternoon tea as high tea because of its regal sound.  However, high tea in Britain features heavier foods and is usually served after 6pm.  Thank you Mandy Sue for spreading the word!

Mandy and I both love the Peabody Hotel in Memphis.  The Peabody has it all...a fabulous hotel, fine dining, a great roof top bar, proper afternoon tea, and The Ducks!

And then there's fashion...Mandy Sue and  I both love Lilly Pulitzer...especially the 'Hotty Pink First Impression' pattern!

Mandy Sue was the speaker recently at a Girls Inc. of Memphis..... and I love that she presented the young girls with the proper dress code for different occasions!  Take a peek y'all, just in case you need a reminder.

I love meeting like-minded people in the blogging world.  Y'all stop by and visit Mandy's blog.  Hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!

Miss Janice,

Thank you for introducing us to Mandy's blog. I agree with you, I'm a fan of anyone who knows the difference between afternoon tea and high tea. Add in the fact that she's discussing proper dress code with young girls, clearly she's a true star!

All the best,
