No Flying Monkeys, but LOTS of Hairy Backed Mullets!

Hellooooo my Darling, I’ve returned to the OC and I have survived Kansas!  Sit down and let me pour you a fresh cup of ‘I’m SO happy to be home!’
The midwest has changed this OC Mommy’s perspective of small town America and I now have a new understanding and appreciation for Jeff Foxworthy’s many jokes!  So with that in mind, I would like to share with you a few little interesting tidbits that caught my attention and nearly made my eyeballs pop out of my head.  There really ought to be a Dos & Don’ts for middle America, so I think I will list a few here... 
Do wear T-shirts and shorts when the weather is hot.
Do Not go shirtless, with a hairy back sporting a mullet and Oakley blades riding on a motorized scooter in front of the post office in the middle of Cotton Wood Falls. 
Do use bug repellant and spray where and when needed.
Do Not use bug repellant like a bottle of Coco Chanel and no, it does not replace your daily bath.
Do take care of your yard with nicely pruned trees and flowering shrubs.
Car(s) on blocks with no tires and rusted, broken down refrigerators Do Not make nice decor by your mailbox.
Do have a healthy diet of fresh vegetables and fruit.  
Cotton candy and baked beans Do Not count as fine dining and the sushi found in the cooler known as minnows just don’t cut it!
Looking at this very short list, I’m wondering how on earth I made it through with my lipstick still intact! But I must admit, the beauty of the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve was absolutely heavenly!  If you get the chance to go, take the tour bus with Ranger Eric Patterson as he will give you a new view on why the prairies and buffalos are so important for this part of our country.
Well, my cup is empty and I still have to unpack my favorite lipsticks... so off you go.  Until next time my Sweet...  Ta Ta!


  1. I can totally relate! My entire family lives in South Dakota, Sioux Falls to be exact and they think the Corn Palace in Mitchell is awesome and a huge attraction. Which is fine, whatever floats your boat but it's a building made out of corn, really? I could never move back after living here in Florida for the past 6 years:-)
    Happy Un-Packing!!!!

  2. Corn Palace? Really? lol Thanks my Dear Andrea for stopping by... Cups Up! xoxo

  3. Thanks for stopping by my site! I'm returning the follow! Be sure to pop back in again for another Mom-ME Moment. You never know what tomorrow will be!
    Ro :)

  4. I am just laughing out loud (for real!) at the very detailed item #2. HAVE to repeat it here because it's priceless:

    "DO NOT go shirtless, with a hairy back sporting a mullet and Oakley blades riding on a motorized scooter in front of the post office in the middle of Cotton Wood Falls."

    : D

  5. Goodness gracious! Remind me to stay the hell away from Kansas.

  6. Thanks for following Darling Ro... xoxo

    Dearest AOCM, don't visualize to hard as it might be bad for your pretty complexion! Did you have to remind me of #2 all over again? lol Cups Up! xoxo

    Brittany my Lovely, definitely not a good time to go with all your hormones kicking in! Cups Up! xoxo

  7. Sorry for the hairy back reminder... but I was SO looking forward to hearing about the flying monkeys! But I'm guessing the hairy-backed creature you saw was NOT a flying monkey???

  8. I think i will definitely scratch Kansas off my list of places to visit... Hairy backs and mullets?? good lord!!!
    Happy to hear you're home safe and sound... even if you do need so therapy to get over the sites you have seen!! lol

  9. oh lord. how you made it out of there in one piece i'll never know.

  10. My Darling AOCM, no flying monkeys for you this time... xoxo

    Sarah my Dear, a couple Cups Up! with bourbon in it ought to do the job nicely... xoxo

    Lots of Knob Creek my Sweet Lisa, lots of Knob Creek! xoxo

  11. I love your do's and don't posts! Happy 4th! Xoxo

  12. Hilarious! I've never been to Kansas or anywhere in middle-America or the mid-West! Crazy right? I am both freaked and fascinated by your list. Maybe I should go? I do like baked beans and cotton candy...

  13. You always make me laugh. Though, I don't know if I agree. I like the shirt-less hair back mullet look. Maybe it's my midwest blood. :)

  14. Hello my Darling Brittney! Hope you had a wonderful 4th and all is getting healthy in your household. Cups Up my Dear and a clink of the glass from me to you! xoxo

    Welcome Jennifer Dear! Freaked and fascinated? Lol It's all in the way you view it, just ask GGM right below your comment... Cus Up! xoxo

    GGM, YOU always crack me up! Maybe we should have a blog debate about the likes and dislikes of the hairy back mullet look! LOL xoxo

  15. Sounds very......interesting! Makes home that much better though, right?! Glad you're back, I missed your coffee!!!

  16. Ahhh Sweet Kim, glad to be back. Loved your last post, "Pull Your Pants Up!" And yes, I'm a survivor! Cups Up! xoxo
