Overview

The host of All Things Southern shares the sass and strength of Southern mamas in this spunky guide to life.

In this humorous handbook, Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, host of All Things Southern, reveals the all-important lessons Southern Mamas teach their daughters. Readers will discover why blue eye shadow is trashy and learn to interpret regional dialect like the Southern Mama APB, a bulletin translated on Southern streets as: ?Give your heart to Jesus, girl, because your butt is all mine!? Shellie carefully breaks down the teachings behind those famous manners and social graces through her firsthand observations and dry wit. Here's everything you need to know from how to cope with the unexpected, compete in the Mr. Right Game Show, and raise children?to how to keep that marriage knot tied tight over time. Woven with quotes from real Southern Mamas and sprinkled with recipes and other Southern secrets, this book's a bona-fide celebration of all things south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

    This will take you back to your Southern roots!

    I felt like all my female relatives were speaking to me through this book! Great writing by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson! I swear my momma, grandmother, and aunts were quoted....

    Definitely Recommend

    I laughed out loud at the truth of what Ms Rushing had to say. I grew up in North Louisiana hearing all that advice. What she points out is that Southern women are taught to show kindness and consideration for others while making the most of themselves. A seriously funny read!

    Hilarious

    Oh, my word!!! This book is hilariously funny. I heard my own Mom talking throughout. Couldn't put it down and was laughing hysterically the whole time. If you were raised in the South, or want to know just exactly what goes on here, you just have to get a copy of this one. You'll love it.

    Hard to suck your stomach in when you're bustin' up laughin...

    This book is absolutely hilarious without being dark or disrespectful...I laughed out loud and wondered if Shellie and I have ever met because she seems to know all my family and friends...except that they all have different names and live in Louisiana instead of Virginia. And great recipes too...just like mamma used to make!
