Minne-SOH-ta, baby.

I sooooooo know where I am going to be January 30th. At the movie theater. Seeing this.

I feel I should get some royalties or something since someone out in Hollywood felt compelled to pen my life experience to paper. New girl in town, in Minnesota? That was ME. Totally me, just ask my husband. Of course, the fact that Harry Connick, Jr. plays the love interest, well, that just puts it over the top for me. Ha! But really, I felt like a fish out of water (putting it lightly) when my husband took a job transfer to the Great North a mere six months after we had gotten married. Frozen lakes? Never seen one. Ya sure, you betcha? I didn't know what in the heck ya'll were talkin' 'bout. Hot dishes? Oh honey, I think you mean a casserole. 30 below? I had no idea the temperatures really could get below zero unless you were in Siberia or something. Thank goodness my Minnesota experiences took a turn for the better, and after I halfway adapted, I am beyond thankful for the close friendships God gave me from there, and for the extended family on my husband's side that took me in and accepted this Southern gal. In fact, our annual (sometimes bi-annual) trip up to Minnesota is one of the things I look forward to most every year (since we're smart enough to avoid visiting in the middle of winter). All of that to say, I wouldn't change a darn thing about my time there, but man, if I can't relate to the gal in this movie!

I. can't. wait. to. see. this. You betcha'.
