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.

Valentine's Day Night

Hey everyone!

Sorry I haven't been around much lately, things have been really busy for me at work and that usually zaps all of my creative energy - guess you could say I went into my shell for a while ;)

I've got lots of stories to tell, but let's just start with the most recent event: Valentine's Day
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
This year, Valentine's Day fell on a Saturday

I'm curious to know what you all did to celebrate - and don't try to tell me you didn't do anything because it looked like everyone and their brother was doing something♥♥♥

Traffic was outrageous!

I swear, you would have thought that this event had never fallen on a Saturday before - the last time was in 2004 - BTW ;) - or that it never would again.


We didn't do much, we had another couple over and the hubs grilled out - YUM!!. He also bought the makings for Apple Martini's - you think he might have had an ulterior motive?? ;)

I drank my standard three (this time with food) and I was feeling right nice.

By 10:00, the effects started wearing off.

By 11:00, the sleepiness set in.

By the time the other couple left (around 11:30 or 12:00) all I wanted to do was get into my comfy PJ's and crawl into my warm, snuggly bed.

That'll learn him - maybe next time he should save his ulterior motives for a night when we don't have company ;)

PS. Valentine's Company: If you're reading this, please note that this is only meant to be a funny story. We really did enjoy your visit! :)



  1. You had company? I checked my messages, but I don't remember being invited over. {sniff,sniff}

    (Just kidding!)

    Bless your hubby's heart; he definitely gets an "A" for effort.;) (And I'm glad that nobody got hurt from drinking apple martinis this time. LOL!)

    (((BIG HUGS!)))
    Love ya bunches,

  2. Everyone seemed to grill this year...I have seen so many pics of yummy grillness..... We went shopping (yes, my man loves to shop!!) and out for a late dinner...and then chocolate covered strawberries for dessert--oh yes! :)

  3. Awe Shell Bell! I'm glad to see you back. An invite? Maybe? For me next time? :)

  4. Apples in martini's!? what will they think of next. heehee
    Romance was really rampant that night cause we grilled out and then watched a movie with the kids then went to bed! How hot is that!! Well after 21 years......

  5. Oh yummy...apple martinis! It sounds like you had a wonderful day! I'm so glad!
