Oh, Dolly!


Happy Monday!

Today I thought I'd make tribute post to one of my favorite ladies in the whole, wide world- Dolly Parton! I've been a Dolly fan forever (although I still haven't ever been to Dollywood), and I think she is just so fun and uplifting. Dolly is a little firecracker, and if you watch any of her interviews I'm sure you'll fall right in love with her too.

Are any of you Dolly fans?

Here are a few videos via youtube! Enjoy.





and the cutest interview:

  1. Oh I love Dolly Parton! This is so embarrassing but when I was little, my mom used to say when girls got older they grew their own "dollies" hahaha. It always comes to mind when I see her<3

  5. Oh, yes, who doesn't love Dolly? How could you not?! I've never been to Dollywood either but I've been to Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede in Missouri!

    Favourite Dolly quote: "Apparently it takes a long time to do my hair...I wouldn't know, I'm not in the room when it happens!" I also love the cameo she did in the Beverley Hillbillies movie, singing "They spent a fortune on me for you!"

  6. OMG I love DOLLY! As a child my favorite movie was "Best Little Whore House in Texas". Please, please tell me you have seen it!? Burt Renolds+Dolly= AAAAAMAZING. Seriously still one of my favorite movies of all time. I was raised by my grandmother so it was a Dolly/John Wayne/Jean Kelly youth. Country western movies and musicals? Especially combined...TGFGrandma!

  8. Yes! I adore Dolly. She is the cutest thing ever. I really really want to go to Dollywood someday. I had a friend go not too long ago and she said it was amazzzing.

  9. I love, love, love me some Dolly Parton. I even had a Dolly Parton "barbie"-type doll when I was little.

    One of my favorite quotes of hers is: "A peacock sitting on it's tailfeathers is just another turkey!"

    She's such a joy.

  12. Love Still Magnolias! She makes the movie for me.
    And I have to listen to the Christmas album she has with Kenny Rogers every Christmas. It's tradition. =)

  13. I love her especially because of her tolerance which catches you off guard coming from an older southern lady like she is.

  14. Yes she's awesome! Best Dolly quote ever:

    "You'd be surprised how much it costs to look this cheap! "

    Love her

  15. Another fellow Dolly lover. And I agree with what Anonymous said (for once an anonymous comment that isn't filled with assholery!). I'd love to meet her and for some reason I feel like she's be an amazing Thanksgiving host. Amazing woman!

  22. I love Dolly! I just drove through Tennessee and was so bummed we didn't have time to stop at Dolly Wood. My husband and I are planning a Tennessee trip for Graceland and Dolly Wood! Yay!

  23. Adore her! One day, when I get to travel to the US, Dollywood is on my list of go-tos.

    I just love how positive she is. She's been through some tough trials in life and I really admire her attitude.

  25. I also adore Dolly Parton. If you ever make it over to Tennessee, a visit to Dollyworld, her theme park in Pigeon Forge, is a MUST. It is precious and has a WONDERFUL Dolly museum.

  26. oh i LOVE her! she is so darling, and such a feisty woman of strength! she's fabulous. and not to mention, jolene is one of the best songs EVER. period.

  27. I definitely live in Gatlinburg, which is right next door to Pigeon Forge.. home of Dollywood! I honestly don't understand why people visit, i won't lie, but Dollywood (or dollyhood as we call it) is pretty bad ass. so is splash country and dixie stampede. good times!

  28. I absolutely ADORE Dolly! She's just too cute, and has the sweetest voice.

  29. I love Dolly!! My best friend is a HUGE Dolly fan, so it was hard not to fall in love with her, too. She's even gotten us to go to Dollywood! It's pretty fun!

    Dolly has such a big heart and she's so sweet and hilarious! <3

  30. The first book report I ever delivered was on Dolly Parton's autobiography, in sixth grade. I can still remember highlights from the book, with scary detail, though I haven't picked it up since!

    Also, when I was little, my Dad used to tell me that Jolene was inspired by a young redheaded girl-just like me-that Dolly had seen. I totally swooned over that at age 10. Ha.

  31. It's funny that you wrote about Dolly yesterday- I stayed home sick from work and watched Oprah for the first time in months and it was an episode with her (we are behind the US obviously). I'd heard of her but didn't know much about her. She's hilarious!

  36. I absolutely love Dolly!
    Jolene has been one of my favorite songs since I was a little girl!! I've never been to Dollywood, but the Dixie Stampede in Branson, MO is an awesome good time.
    And I LOVE her in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas!
    AH! SO GOOD! :)
