Ya-Ya

So I am reading the "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood". I have seen bits and pieces of the movie here and there, so I thought I would enjoy reading the book. I am about 1/2 way through, and I find myself jealous that I don't have a Ya-Ya language.

I have the BEST girlfriends anyone could ask for, Rocket Scientist, Moxie Crimefighter, Spice Rack and Dixie Dot. But do we have our own special language? What would we call our Petite Ya-Ya-s? 'Hood-lings? Does that make us the 'Hood-mama's? Or the 'Hood-ies? Why doesn't our gang of peeps have a name? Do we really need one? Or am I so caught up in the secret language and bond between these characters in the story that I feel we should have one?

I love the "scrapbook" from the Ya-Ya's...... should I be saving stuff like they did? Should someone be writing down these stories that we keep retelling so they don't get lost? I have been saying for a while now that I wanted to start a scrapbook for me: and I think this is what I will do! Yes! Now I am on a mission! All those parties that are "locked" up inside the camera are coming out! I will post the first page, once I get it done, so you can see it.......

I started a scrapbook for me a couple years ago and I absolutely love it! I don't do pages for it often, but it's nice when I can. You go girl! Oh, and I loved that movie too. I need to see the sequel.

I need to still see the movie. I read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it!
