I ♥ My Fellow Backwoods Barbie!

If you don't already know how much I love this girl…you can read all about it here & here.

But just when I thought I couldn't love her more…I see this!

Yeay! She got it! 
And her reaction & appreciation…LOVE LOVE LOVE & made my entire day!

I ♥ her for all the reasons I've always been a fan of Dolly!
For her uniqueness, her ability to "do her" & not give a s**t what anyone else thinks, and to never apologize or make excuses for being all dressed up/having her own style & living life to it's fullest! 

As Dolly would say…"If I have offended anybody...all I can say if tough titty!"

Trisha is my Dolly & in the ways of being "all done up" & having people (all my life) ask why…I can relate to Dolly and T…100%! 

Because I wanna be…that's why! 

It's in my blood.
It's who I am.

Imagine how much more beautiful this world would be if we all were so busy "being us" (our true/authentic selves)…that we didn't have any time left to judge others!

If you love to be all dolled up, great.

If you hate it, great.
That's the beauty of uniqueness.
That's what makes this world a whole Crayola box…instead of just black & white.

So…here's to all of us & being our own unique, wonderful selves!


Backwoods Barbie

"Grew up poor and ragged, just a simple country girl. 

I wanted to be pretty more than anything in the world,
Like Barbie or the models in the Fredricks' catalog.
From rags to wishes in my dreams I could have it all.
I'm just a backwoods Barbie, too much makeup, too much hair.
Don't be fooled by thinkin' that the goods are not all there.
Don't let these false eyelashes lead you to believe that
I'm as shallow as I look 'cause I run true and deep.

I've always been misunderstood because of how I look.
Don't judge me by the cover 'cause I'm a real good book.
So read into it what you will, but see me as I am.
The way I look is just a country girl's idea of glam.

I'm just a backwoods Barbie in a push-up bra and heels.
I might look artificial, but where it counts I'm real.
And I'm all dolled up and hopin' for a chance to prove my worth,
And even backwoods Barbie's get their feelings hurt.

I'm just a backwoods Barbie, too much makeup, too much hair.
Don't be fooled by thinkin' that the goods are not all there.
Yes, I can see where I could be misjudged upon first glance;
But even backwoods Barbie's deserve a second chance.
I'm just a backwoods Barbie just asking for a chance,
Just a backwoods Barbie."


Keep Shining, Trisha!

This world needs your light.
I ♥ You, Honey!

This is the most amazing this ever! Isn't it the best feeling in the world to send something or get something for someone and know that they TRULY appreciate it?
I watched Trisha's video and see why you felt the need to reach out. She seems lovely.
