About Me

My photo
Hello and welcome to a small snapshot of what life's like inside my little corner of the world. I'm Shelly, I have a satisfying career and I'm shackled to my supurb husband. I'm the step-monster to his stylish son and together we have two stunningly beautiful daughters - Sugar and Spice, two stubborn dogs and a squawking bird. These are just some of the stories of my life.

A Toast

Twas the week before Christmas and in our new place
We had another new tree, the other one being too big for the space.

We have a beautiful new fireplace that we never will use
Because it uses gas logs, causing higher utility dues

But it was nice to have a real mantel to hang our stockings up where
St. Nicholas could put a few knick-knacks in there

Three presents for each, wrapped with love and care
Except for the husband, who had one gift to spare

On this day he was born, as I’m sure you were already aware
since he believes this momentous day to be a very special affair
In fact, according to him, we should all have a t-shirt to wear ;)

If you did not receive yours please be sure to let him know
As I’ve tried explaining to him before that it just isn’t so

So babe, I apologize for this late birthday post
And ask you all to raise your glass for a belated birthday toast
To this husband of mine, whom I love the most

Happy Belated Birthday, Babe, I love you!



  1. I had no idea you were such a poet! This is too cute! But I want to see pictures...

    of the tree
    and the stockings
    and the gas logs you won't use!

    I'm clamoring.

    Happy New Year!

  2. You ARE a very talented poetess! Is that a word? well it is now.
    Happy B'day to dearest hubs!!

  3. LOL!:) Thanks for sharing.;)

  4. Seriously, just ignore my previous comment.;)

    You are so talented! Very cute! (Now get to work cranking out some more chapters of my book.) ;)

    And, for the record, I did not receive my t-shirt. I'm just saying.;)

    Happy Belated Birthday, "Babe!" :)
