The Real WAHM of South Louisiana 28 comments

Half of what my 6 year old does is funny to me. The other half would only be funny if it happened to someone else’s child.

Honey Boo Boo likes butter and ketchup on her “sketti”…


…and The Deuce likes hot sauce on his.

To display my slice of reality TV heaven, I have made a commercial for Being A Wordsmith.


Because my blog buddy, Joi at Rx Fitness Lady, is hosting a 7 Day Mini Blog Challenge on her site starting today. Check it out! There are some fantastic writing prompts for you to participate in. She has been a huge source of support and sisterhood for me. I had so much fun participating in her blog challenge back in May. And she’s doing it again this week. So I’m on board!

The writing prompt for Rx Fitness Lady’s challenge today is a Blog Commercial/Confessions of a Blogger. 

I had a great time making this commercial. Shout-out to Nellie from Brooklyn Active Mama for sharing some great tips on how to make one. Used the videocam on my laptop and Windows Movie Maker and presto–it was done. I hope you enjoy it. It includes a blooper reel too!


The giveaway is still happening…

      So glad the commercial was one of Joi's prompts. It motivated me to do it. I had been putting vlogging off since I did one for her 1st challenge. Thanks for the support!

    Yay Amber! I am not a fan of football, I'm just a Saints fan. And a new one at that. The year they went to the Superbowl was wild. Hubby and I were part of all the hoopla in the French Quarter when they won. It was a great time. So much love. It was a sight to behold. WhoDat Nation has been trying to get back to that status every year since.

    I left Basketball Wives after the FIRST season! I was telling Andrea at Be Quoted–when she did a post on it–that I couldn't get past Shaunie O'Neal giving the Govan sisters air time and a spin-off show when she was beefing with them. And how many episodes can you have where somebody is throwing a drink in someone's face? Too many!

    Great commercial! Deuce is a natural on camera, and you were so relaxed! My favorite reality show is Top Chef, and my life does not in any way resemble a television show 🙂
    My recent post Where do you stand on the important issues?

    • BeingAWordsmith

      Thanks Dana! I have a theatre background, but I was very self-conscious doing the commercial. After doing a million takes, I started recording bits quickly and thinking on my feet instead of trying to read my notes nearby. It made me warm up and not sound so rehearsed.

      My mother loves Top Chef, but I never watched it before. I've always watched Chopped and Next Food Network Star. However this season I'll be tuning in to Top Chef, because it's set in New Orleans. Who Dat!

    That was good. I thought I clicked on all the links yesterday. My favorite section of the video was the Louisiana part. My husband says make groceries right along with everyone when he goes home. The first time he asked me if I wanted to get down from the car we were approaching a Burger King drive thru. For else reading this comment “get down” means to get out. Well I almost fell out of the car from laughing. He was too through with me. Deuce is a doll!

    Hotsauce on spegetti? I have never heard or tried it before, but you know what? I'm game. It was good hearing and seeing you, and I'm so glad I came to your neck of the blog world. #MBS

      I appreciate you stopping by, Kalley. The Deuce loves hot sauce on red beans and rice too. I'm connecting with your social media links. Thank you for commenting.

    I had a good laugh at the bloopers, of course, and at the mention of blood relatives. Deuce is camera ready! LOL! I don't look at TV hardly any more (exception was Haves and the Have Nots; since the finale the TV hasn't been turned on), so I don't see any reality TV, unless I'm at the gym and one of the shows is on. But I was a hard core Days of our Lives fan back in the day. I would schedule my lunch time so that I wouldn't miss DOOL! I used to watch almost all of them at one point. #addict I'm in recovery now, thank you. 😉

    It was good to put a voice and personality to the writing, Kimberly. Great job!
    My recent post I made a video!

    • BeingAWordsmith

      Thanks Alison! I was a DOOL fan many years ago, but stopped after it began going to the paranormal side. It's still hanging on these days though. But I'm a Y&R fan through and through. You haven't turned the TV on since The Haves and the Have Nots finale? OMG. What is that like? I was telling Michelle at A Dish of Daily Life that my sister doesn't even own a TV. I can't imagine. Thanks for commenting.

      I honestly don't miss the TV, Kimberly. Actually, HAHN was the only thing I was watching since late May. I'm online a lot, so I don't have much time for TV. Plus, I'd rather listen to music!

    I loved watching your video, Kim! And I loved all your Louisiana comments, of course. They made me smile. When we applied for our marriage license last year, I don't remember them asking about us being blood related, so maybe it's just certain parishes or perhaps they've abandoned the question all together. lol I loved your alligator bit, too. I remember once when I was in sixth grade we were in Texas and another kid asked if I rode in a boat to school. Obviously I said no, but looking back, it would have been fun to mess with him and say yes. Just the other day, I was talking to someone here in Michigan about water sports and, I mentioned that my family loves to jet ski on Bayou Teche. She was like “aren't there crocadiles in there?!?!” I said, “Well, they're alligators, actually, but they're not going to attack you or anything.” She probably thinks I'm insane. haha

      Glad you enjoyed it, Mandi. I was telling Kennie at Beignet Mamas (who's from New Orleans) that the “relative” question was on the application for our marriage license. At the Baton Rouge Clerk of Court Office. It asked “Are you blood related?”

      I always thought it was funny when people from areas outside of Louisiana thought we all had swamps in our backyard with gators in them. UNTIL I moved to a subdivision that gives swamp tours behind it. And alligators have been on the service road near it. Actually it may be even funnier now. Thanks for commenting.

    Loved the bloopers! It is his world!!! Nice hearing a word from from you Kim! My sister was listening and explained who dat! I'm so out of the football loop! Thanks for incorporating the #MBC this into the saphire challenge.

    I think reality TV is here to stay dear! I don't really have a favorite. Surprisingly, I've grown kinda tired of it. I am not tuned in to basketball wives at all…I mean seriously, I didn't make it through the first episode!

  • Veronica

    Hotsauce on his spaghetti…mmm he might be on to something. Love the video. I am first time visitor but I've seen your name around. Hope to connect again. 3mbc

    This is my first time at your site – yay!! I loved your video and that you “rig” recipes because that is the ONLY way I know how to cook – uncomplicated!! I actually hate reality TV – sorry!! I'm hooked on Breaking Bad and Dexter right now which are both in their final seasons so I'm not sure what I'm going to do when they're over:-(((

  • BeignetMamas

    LOL! Duece is hilarious!!! As far as the marrying cousins thing, my husband is from a town in North Louisiana that's about 10 miles from the town that my grandmother was from. When we were getting ready to get married, folks were trying to make SURE that we were not related! (We're not.) Oh, and I still say “Makin groceries” too! LOL
    My recent post Lights, Camera, Action!

    • BeingAWordsmith

      The “relative” question was on our marriage license application. At the Baton Rouge Clerk of Court Office. It asked “Are you blood related?” My mother and l laughed ourselves silly about that one. I flew in from Detroit where we were living at the time a month before the wedding to apply for the license. It coincided with my bridal shower (I had one in Atlanta too). Thanks for being such a big supporter of my challenge. I appreciate it!

    My only child is one years old and much like you and your hubby my hubby and I are living her world! She is spoiled in everywhich direction she turns. My parents, his parents, they ALL are culprits in the spoiling of this child. Her day is coming though. My husband thinks its time to start discipling. haha
    I'm trying to think of what reality show my life would resemble? Perhaps the Real Housewives of New York minus the money, minus the cattiness, minus the big houses, add some class and voila you've got my life!jk 😉

    • BeingAWordsmith

      So glad you dropped by Veronica! I am always in awe of how my parents spoil my son. They do things with him that they never did with my sister and I. My sister has a son too and I'll never forget the time she told me that our daddy sang a lullaby to him. I couldn't believe it!

    I can't answer your question today….because….I don't watch tv. Can you believe that? People think I am nuts! I do every blue moon see something on there…its not like we don't have one and my family watches. But I never turn it on myself and I don't have any shows I watch. By the way, that cousin comment was hysterical and your son is adorable!!

      That's probably why you can write such great informed posts. My sister doesn't even own a TV. That amazes me. Glad you liked commercial, Michelle.
