Buzzfeed on Southern Mothers


“Oh, she calls me everyday…” 

I wanted to share this video simply because I enjoy Buzzfeed videos and Mother’s Day is coming up! I love my southern mama and this video captures some funny quirks of the southern mom stereotype. The accuracy is off the charts.

I can attest that southern moms are all about hospitality, love, and making sure their children are fed. It’s also not rare for them to be a little bit sassy; the best part is that they do it all while wearing a smile.

Check out some exclusive conversations about southern life with my mom on this Mom & Manhattan podcast episode!

Southern Slang And Other Misleading Pleasantries

Buzzfeed published a wonderful post titled “17 Phrases Only Southerners Truly Understand.” Loved it. It made me realize how often we Southerners say one thing and mean another. Watch out New York friends! 😉

In the spirit of my upcoming podcast all about Southern slang, check out some of my favorites from the Buzzfeed article below. Stay tuned for the next episode.
