Top 10 Quotes From 'Sweet Home Alabama'
Peter Iovino - © 2002 - Touchstone Pictures - All Rights Reserved

Recently, I turned on my TV to find that one of my all-time favorite movies, "Sweet Home Alabama," was on.

I was in absolute awe that, after growing up in Georgia, one of my good friends had never seen this movie. I mean, come on, it's like the southern version of "The Notebook," or something like that.

Anyways, I am that annoying person that quotes the entire movie the whole time and I'm not ashamed, because I just love it that much.

Between Reese Witherspoon, Patrick Dempsey (pre-McDreamy) and the ever so sexy Josh Lucas, the movie is filled with quirky southern drawls and heart-melting scenes. Basically, a young woman, Melanie (Witherspoon), reinvents herself as a New York socialite by getting engaged to the Mayor of New York's son, Andrew (Dempsey), and must return home to Alabama to obtain a divorce from her husband and life-long lover, Jake (Lucas).

If you haven't seen this movie, read my favorite quotes, then go watch it. Then go watch it again. And again.

If this movie doesn't make your heart swell with pride for your southern roots and of course, southern boys, then I don't know what will.

1. "Why would you wanna marry me, anyhow?" "So I can kiss you anytime I want."


2. "Honey, just cause I talk slow doesn't mean I'm stupid."


3. "The truth is I gave my heart away a long time ago, my whole heart, and I never really got it back."


4. "The only reason I ain't signing is cause you've turned into some hoity-toity Yankee bitch, and I'd like nothing better right now than to piss you off."


5. "Oh, why don't you go back to your double-wide and fry something!" "Nobody talks to my mama like that!"


6. "Praise the Lord, the South has risen again!"


7. "You can take the girl out of the honky tonk, but you can't take the honky tonk out of the girl."


8. "Careful, you just killed the state bird of Alabama!"


9. "I never fully understood that expression, but no, I am not "shitting" you."


10. "Why would you wanna marry me, anyhow?" "So I can kiss you anytime I want." AGAIN


I am telling you, this is the best movie you will ever see. The quirky southern charm and way of life that makes me smile every time. And again, look at Jake, he is beautiful. I fall in love all over again every time I watch this movie.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.
