Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Welcome!!!!  Thanks for stopping by from the party.  If you don't know which party I'm talking about, check it out:

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Come on in.  Take a seat, but at my house you'd have to brush the dog hair and crumbs off the cushions.  We can't all be domestic queens, and a clean house is certainly not what I'm known for.  

Want some coffee?  I cannot live without it these days.  German Chocolate Cake is my absolute favorite flavor.  

Well, since this is pretty much a one way conversation until you leave me a comment (which I love comments by the way), let me tell you a bit about myself and my blog.

I'm Shelly.  I'm an Army wife and temporarily single mom due to a military deployment.  However, that is ending soon--like THIS month!  But there is a lot more to me than just an Army wife.  I have two little boys, and three dogs.  Having a full house keeps me busy.  I'm a stay at home mom.  I feel like I have the best job in the world, even if my children sometimes drive me up the wall.  I've recently found a love (or maybe it's a dependence) on coffee.  I like shopping (especially online so I don't have to get out of my sweatpants), but I hate spending money.  So if I can find a great deal I'm happy.  I'm always trying to make myself a better person, wife, and mother, but I fail a lot.  I keep trying though, so that is what is important.  

I enjoy sharing my thoughts and stories through my blog.  I write about anything that strikes me at the time.  Sometimes it's about my kids, my dogs, my husband, the Army life, my domestic successes or failures, things I'm loving now, or just random tidbits.  

I'd love for you to follow along and be a new blog friend.  If you decide to follow, let me know and I'll follow you back.  (I don't believe in one-sided friendships :)   Thanks for stopping by.  I cannot wait to read more about you.

I'm having a passionate love affair with my coffee maker...and chai tea. That coffee flavor sounds delightful! I'm glad to have met you through UBP, it's so fun to get to know new people.
Here's to boys and dogs and ended deployment!

PalouseMom said...

Found your site on the UBP! Looking forward to reading more - especially about being an military family. Not something I'm familiar with but have a TON of respect for!!

Amanda said...

I have two boys too. I don't think my house will ever be clean again. I won't say it's not clean, it's cluttered - with toys. The only time it's truly how I want it is right after a PCS.
