If You Know How To Pronounce 'Wedowee,' Then You're Definitely From Alabama, Plus 19 Other Signs

I've lived in Alabama all my life. Growing up, I have learned how unique Alabama is compared to the other states. These ways will go on to the future generations. Being from Alabama is great and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

1. Events are planned around football games

Oh you're getting married? Congratulations! I won't be able to make is because Alabama is playing LSU that day.

2. Catching "Hot Rolls" at Lambert's Cafe in Foley

You either get hit in the face with them or dodge them. You can't get mad because the food is so good.

3. Mosquitoes ruin EVERYTHING

Mosquitoes are basically the state's most hated inhabitant.

4. You know how to pronounce Wedowee

We-DOW-ee. I'll just leave it at that.

5. You have run the heater & the AC on the same day.

For Christmas, Mother Nature gives you a gift. It's the gift of hot and cold in the same day. Yes, it really gets warm in December.

6. You know all the words to Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama"

All you have to do is hear "turn it up"

7. "Go to church or the devil will get you"

This sign is basically a VERY important landmark. It's on I65 near Prattville

8. James Spann is your hero

If he's in a full suit, the weather is fine. If he takes off his jacket and rolls his sleeves up, you better seek shelter.

9. Roll Tide and War Eagle are acceptable greetings

"Roll Tide" "War Eagle" this is a real conversation.

10. Y'all is used in every sentence

​Hey y'all! How are y'all doing today? What have y'all been up to?

11. Alexander Shunnarah is everywhere

I'm surprised there's not a billboard outside my bedroom window. We all love Shunnarah though.

12. You can tell which county a person is from by their license plate

11: Calhoun County. 61: Talladega County. 1: Jefferson. The list goes on.

13. If you hear a tornado siren, you go outside and look for a funnel cloud

I'm guilty of this. I've seen the movie "Twister" too many times.

14. If it snows, the whole state shuts down

Sorry, Alabama is closed.

15. The Iron Bowl is basically a holiday

DO NOT CALL ME, TEXT ME, OR SHOW UP TO MY HOUSE WHILE THE GAME IS ON!

16. People from up North have a funny accent

Them folk ain't from around here.

17. Paul "Bear" Bryant and Ralph "Shug" Jordan are legends

The Bear coached at Alabama and Shug coached at Auburn. Both schools have named their stadiums after these men. Ex: Bryant-Denny Stadium and Jordan-Hare Stadium.

18. You know the difference between the state, the school, and the band

SPEND MY DOLLAR

19. BBQ is acceptable at any event

What's the menu at your wedding? BBQ.

20. You know your home's in Alabama

This is actually a song by the band Alabama. You know you love living here and wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

4568
J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

11961

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
