Suck in your stomach & put some color on!

I'm a member of Southern Mommas & our leader, Sweet Tea & Biscuits, has come up with this book giveaway. 

I bought this book I while back & when I read about this giveaway, I found it & haven't put it down since!

You feel like you really get to know Shellie in the book -oh and her momma, sisters and granny . Seriously if you don't win this book , you need to make this the next book on your reading list or book club . Here is the link to purchase on Amazon. Here is how Amazon describes the book :

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.

Here are a few lines that are memorable for any southern momma and I hope my daughter will read this one day :

- Frosted blue eye shadow is for hussies!
- It's okay to fall down , just don't waller
- Hickey my hind end, give that boy a pacifier

She also shares snippets from other southern mommas in her book - Love them ! Here are a few

-My southern momma always said I could get mad in the same pants I got glad in!
-My mama said "if you let anyone look at me after I'm dead I will haunt you the rest of your life.

Shellie has sent a signed copy of her book as a giveaway for one lucky member of the southern mommas network. It is super simple to win ..... All you need to do is join Southern Mommas and then leave a comment below letting us know you are a new or current member of the site. We will close out the giveaway on Friday Feb. 26th, 2010.

Is it more funny if you're from the South? Just wondering:) It does sound funny though!

Hey, I was wondering...did you read the book "Confessions of a Slacker Mom?" A friend of mine told me about it awhile ago, and I wondered if you had read it?

Cool book! I'm not sure if KY is really considered southern. I think this area is but technically we are midwestern.
