A few months ago, I picked up this charming little book and have thoroughly enjoyed reading it.  If you're a southern belle at heart like me, this is a must read!  If you are interested in being a southern lady, this book is a fine attempt at explaining how to be a one.  It is a bible for the Southern girl-whether born and bred, expatriated, or adoptive –and her many admirers.  I have been non-stop laughing!

It reveals the code behind the distinctive -and irresistible-style of the Southern woman. Equal parts sweet sincerity and sharp, sly humor, The Grits Guide to Life is chock-full of Southern charm: advice, true-life stories from honest-to-god "Grits," recipes, humor, quotable wisdom, and more. Readers will learn vital lessons, including: how to eat a watermelon in a sundress; how to drink like a Southern lady (sip...a lot); and the real meaning of PMS (Precious Mood Southerner).

Here’s a taste of one of the Grits lessons:
This book is a really great read if you are a Southern girl or love somebody who is.  It reviews all that your momma shoulda taught ya about being a true lady.

Have any of you ever read this book?  If so, what did you think???



  1. This book looks adorable, and I've never heard of it! I think it is a MUST-HAVE for my coffee table books!

  2. I got this book at the beach a few years ago and love it! I had it on my nightstand at college and every so often would just flip through it when I needed a pick-me-up!

  3. This looks precious. I'm definitely going to have to read it soon!

  4. I have never read this, but it seems cute! My favortire Southern saying is "bless her heart," I say it all the time!

  5. I just bought this book two days ago and I'm just about done reading it because it's so darn good! It is a precious little pick-me-up; The perfect "Bible" for us Southern women.
