Boring Ol' Me

I know, I know; you're all pretty shocked to be seeing a new post on here from me. I'm sorry that i haven't written anything for a while guys, but my life isn't really all that interesting so i don't think i have that much to write about. I am definitely going to try to redeem myself and start writing more often. I can't promise that I'll be able to do a post every week. But i figure if i start out slow, like once a month, then i can work up to twice a month; then hopefully i can make it all the way up to once a week. Another reason that I haven't posted anything is because i don't have any cool pics or graphics to add to the posts to make them more interesting. But if you can stand just reading about boring ol' me then i'll keep writing. I think that one of the biggest reasons that I haven't written much is because i'm always so busy. In this month alone i've made a wedding cake, helped cater a banquet, organized a family picnic and pictures (which is like a year-long event in itself), baby-sat countless nieces and nephews, organized two young-single adult activities and am still planning a couple more, tried to attend all of my ward activities, made numerous treats to take to work or ward functions, held down a full-time job, got sick, and shattered my phone with no time to buy a new one. Now can you see why i haven't had time to write many posts for this blog. I know i'm mostly pretty boring without cute pics or stories about my family, adorable children or home stories to tell, but i should probably share the stories of the success of my first wedding cake and the shattering of my phone and why i haven't yet bought a new one. So although i'm signing off now you can look forward to those two stories coming soon to a post near you!! TTFN (As Tigger would say Ta Ta For Now)


A- Attached or Single? Single, and we won't discuss it please

D- Day of choice? Any day that I can sleep in and don't have to work
E- Essential Item? Whatever book I'm reading at the moment

N- Number of brothers and sisters? 4 bro 4 sis
O- Oranges or Apples? Granny Smith Apples because they're so tart, and Orange Juice

First Things First

First off, I need to thank my little sister Stacy for getting my blog started with me. I've been meaning to do this for a long time but I've never found the time to sit here and actually write down the things I have on my mind. I have a myspace page and a facebook account but I've found that they don't allow me to say the things that I really want to say. I think this page will allow me to do just that. The second reason that I'm starting this page is because i haven't heard anything bad about blogging yet. Let me explain; my friend Michelle says that only 13 yr olds and child molesters have myspace pages and since I don't want to be either one of those I decided that I needed a better way to keep all my friends and family (be they near or far) updated on my life. I can't promise that this blog will be interesting or even something worth reading that often. But I am going to try to keep it light and funny and applicable to my life. So for anyone interested in the random, absurd, and usually funny thoughts that go through my head throughout the day welcome to "Shelly Says" and enjoy!!!
