Sue Ellen's GIrl Ain't Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson - Book Blog Tour Stop!

I am tickled pink to be hosting a book blog tour stop for author Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, and her new book, "Sue Ellen's Girl Ain't Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy."

 About The Book:

Shelly Rushing Tomlinson, the bestselling author of "Suck Your Stomach In & Put Some Color On!" returns with more helpful how-to's and keen observations from Dixie in her new book, "Sue Ellen's Girl Aint Fait, She Just Weighs Heavy."

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.

If you want a book that will leave you weak from laughing, and one that will have you nodding your head saying "Uh huh" in agreement, Shellie's book is the book for you!

Part advice book, part cookbook (oh the recipes!!!) and all one-hundred percent pure entertainment, "Sue Ellen's Girl Ain't Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy" is just an absolute joy to read. In this volume of what I hope will be an on-going series, Shellie gives her opinion and advice on menopause, social medias, manners, even a political thought or two. At the end of each chapter, she includes some of the most lip-smacking, soul-comforting, deeee-lish-ious sounding Southern recipes that I've encountered in a good long while - they sound so good, they'll make you want to slap your momma!  (It's a Southern saying, ya'll - we really don't slap our  mommas down here!)

So pull up a rocking chair on Shellie's front porch and sit a'spell to visit with one of the funniest ladies of Southern humor since Miss Fannie Flagg!  You will be smiling the whole time, I guarantee it!
