Ultimate Blog Party 2013

I am so happy it is that time again.  I've linked up with the Ultimate Blog Party from 5minutesformom.com for a couple years now.  In fact is is through linking up that I've found some of my favorite blog friends that I completely connect with.

Ultimate Blog Party 2013

So if you are new here, let me fill you in quickly.  I'm Shelly.  I'm a wife, mother, dog lover, coffee drinker, occasional crafter, and I enjoy cooking and baking. 

My husband and I met in college. We've been married almost 9 years ago.  We got married young, and it was before the days of Pinterest.  (Gasp!  How does one plan anything without Pinterest?!?!)

If you didn't guess it from the picture of our wedding, my husband is in the Army.  We gone through three deployments and have lived in OK and TN, but recently we've been blessed with the opportunity to move back to New England where we can live near family.  We bought our dream home this fall....don't let the phrase "dream home" confuse you though.  It's not huge or grand, but it is what we always wanted.  My husband and I have had quite a journey together already, but there is no one else I would want to experience the ups and downs with.  He is my other half.  

Together we have three beautiful children.  My heart is so full, and I feel complete.  We have two boys and one baby girl.  Ryan is 5, Sean is 3, and Leah is 9 months old.  These kids are so sweet, stubborn, and absolutely full of personality.  I am a stay at home mom, and I feel like I have the best job in the world.  That isn't to say that there aren't hard days.  


One of the biggest struggle for me with motherhood is being patient.  It is something I am constantly working on, hence the name of my blog.  Some days are better than others.  

What you'll find on my blog is regular tales about motherhood, funny stories about our days, random thoughts from a sleep deprived mom, occasional fashion and beauty posts, and of course pictures.  I love connecting with other bloggers, so I hope you'll say hello and stay a while.

I can't believe it's that time again! I'm so glad I met you through this a few years ago! It's been fun to watch your family grow (and to be pregnant together with Leigh and Eli!! They are getting soooo big!!!) I need to get a post together and go link up! Have a great weekend!

Stopping by from UBP--I struggle with patience as well. My girls are 11 and 13 and some days we all do better than others. But at least we try.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Just stopping by from the UBP13 to say hi though I've been following for awhile. I can't remember if I found you through a previous UBP or some milspouse link up. Doesn't matter! Leah is getting so big!

I can't imagine those cute little kids would ever test your patience ;-) Not to scare you - but wait until the teenage years. (I have a 17 year old who is always full of surprises).

enjoy the party!

Hi Shelly! The name of your blog caught my eye! Patience (the lack of) is my biggest struggle as a mom!

I'm stopping by from the party! I'm your newest follower!!

Blessings!

WeeMason's Mom said...

I have trouble with patience too!! I'm always kind of jealous of all the other moms who go "Don't you just wish you could wake your kid up and cuddle with them half an hour after they go to bed?" when I'm usually like "OMG, thank goodness he's finally asleep!!" instead. Oh well....

Also a fellow dog lover :o)

Visiting today from UBP!

I’m very happy to read this. This is the kind of details that needs to be given and not the accidental misinformation that’s at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this post.

Hi Shelly, you of course had me at coffee. I always meet a small handful of people here every year that become good friends, it's worth it every year. I love your wedding photo and your children are adorable! I hope you have a great party

Cathi said...

I’m fashionably late stopping by from the UBP13. I hope you stop by our party for a slice of warm banana bread and cold milk.
Hugs,
Cathi

It is a nice meeting you “Shelly” through this blog. I am very happy knowing about the beautiful journey of your life, taking from your college life to ‘becoming as a housewife’. I really like your wedding photo too here. Please tell me; which is this party space nyc, booked for this celebration?
