Sue Ellen's Girl Ain't Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy Blog Tour!

Guided by principles from the ancient Belle Doctrine, the host of radio and television's All Things Southern offers down-home advice on everything from health and fitness-managing thy caloric calculations without going Straight Running Crazy and surviving the Raging Inferno Syndrome (aka hot flashes)-to the Southern art of handling your man (Bubba Whispering). Whether giving business tips or debunking the Big Boned Theory, making political observations or celebrating the inevitable resurgence of big hair, Shellie is an adviser women can relate to and laugh with regardless of their age or which side of the Mason-Dixon they call home.
Once I started reading this book~I couldn't put it down.It was just what I needed with the dreary weather that we have been having.When I was reading~I was laughing so hard as she sure has a way with words. Being a northern girl~it was fun to read how much different the southern girls are then the northern girls~of course we are the same we just have different ways of expressing our concerns. Here are two of my favorites~
"Southern Men Don't Wannna Have To Shake The Sheets To Find Their Women!
"Bo-Dollars~A Expression Southerners use when they're talking about serious money exchanging hands!

And one thing I remember that made me really laugh is~Never send your man to Walmart to get you the "un~unmentionable's"  as you never know when something might happen and you will have to go to the hospital. Think of what everyone would say when they saw you laying there in those "Granny Panties" that are not only your style but they are so big they reach up to your bra~doubling as Spandex!!


About Shellie~

Shellie Rushing Tomlinson and her husband Phil live and farm in the Louisiana Delta. Shellie is the author of Lessons Learned on Bull Run Road, Twas the Night Before the Very First Christmas, Southern Comfort with Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, and the Penguin Group USA release, Suck Your Stomach In and Put Some Color On, voted Nonfiction Finalist of 2009 by SIBA Independent Booksellers Alliance.

Tomlinson is owner and publisher of All Things Southern and the host of the weekly radio show All Things Southern as well as a weekly video segment by the same name. Listeners also hear Shellie in her All Things Southern radio segments aired across the South. Shellie writes a weekly inspirational feature in Newsstar and a monthly print and online column for Lousiana Road Trips.

When Shellie isn't writing, speaking, taping her show, answering email or writing content for the next deadline, you can find her playing tennis with Dixie Belle, (the chocolate lab who thinks she is in charge of running Shellie's life). 

You can get a copy of this great book here!


To celebrate the Sue Ellen’s release, Shellie is having a Facebook Party!  
Join Shellie and the gang on June 2nd at 5:00 PM PST (6 MST, 7 CST, 8 EST) for a Southern style shin-dig! She'll be dishing on Bubba Whispering, debunking the Big Boned Theory, and how to manage going Straight Running Crazy. If you don't know what any of that is, then be sure to pick up a copy of the book (Not necessary to join the fun! Who knows - you might win a copy!) and join us at 5:00 pm on June 2nd at Shellie's Facebook page. And tell your friends - she's giving away copies of her books and some great gift certificates.
