Thoughtless Thursday & almost the weekend!!

I can't believe its Thursday again, which means it's Thoughtless Thursday over @ Life in the Fulmer Lane, so head over there and join in...and then congratulate her because she is going to be a MOMMA come November!!!

So, I thought I'd let you in on some baby preparations going on at mi casa, as I have about 4 weeks left until this baby graces us with her presence!

This is the three piece set we are thinking of buying.  I know its all a bit boring, but the price fits for us and its still cute!

This is the bedding set theme we went with!  Emma's room is painted pink and has a Whinnie the pooh theme.

The next two are double strollers that I am considering.  I just have no idea which one, they aren't cheap and I'd have to buy a new infant car seat for both, so I NEED to be certain I reeeeally want/need/like the one we buy!!

Graco Quattro Tour Duo Stroller in Zurich - I am very familiar with Graco products, so thats the draw here.  And they have nice cups for snacks and drinks haha!

Contours Options Tandem Stroller - Ruby - I like this one the best I think, but I just wish their was a little cup or something in front of each seat!

Thats all for tonight folks...let me know what you think!!

Quick little Wishful Wednesday...

Kelsey over at the Seattle Smiths, as always, is hosting WISHFUL WEDNESDAY!!!

This week's topic iiiiiis...
'I wish' .... I could go back and spend one day working at a job from my youth, and it would be Crescent Ridge Dairy Bar!

I TOTALLY wish I had a cute picture from when I worked there, but all of my cute high school pictures are in boxes downstairs (which is very much still in remodel mode)!  Any who, the requirement to scoop ice cream here was pretty much being in high school, so that made for lots of fun and flirty things to do!  We made lots of tips, gave away lots of free ice cream (sorry Crescent Ridge!), and did flirted with everyone and anyone!!
Oh to be 16 again, not a care in the world!

Temptation Tuesday...

Hey all, so I am CRAAAZY busy this week with school (last week of classes then finals next week), so I will most likely be slacking.  But, before I hit the sheets for the evening, I thought I would tempt myself with a little Miss Kriss Temptation Tuesday action!  Check her out and see if her Temptation Tuesday denim doesn't tempt you, just try it!
So what is tempting me, you say...Well, clothing that wasn't designed for a person to expand to the size of a whale! (for those of you that are unaware, I am 34 weeks preggers and feeling HUGE)  I hopped onto Express's website and tempted myself, because in T-minus 10 weeks (heres to hoping haha) I plan on being O-U-T OUT OUT OUT of hideous oversized clothing!

Please enjoy these little numbers from a store I frequent quite often, Express!
I just went to the new arrivals tab and shoes tab (the bed is really calling my name tonight) and these are only a few of the items I adored...

{Not sure if these are quite my thing, being a mom of 2 now especially, but I bet they would make me feel pretty sexy rexy}

Thanks for tempting me on this wonderful tuesday Miss Kriss!!

So, I love you all and I am very sad to admit I may be a but MIA for the next couple of weeks, but I will try my bestest!!

Happy Tuesday to all and to all a GOODNIGHT!

Getting to know YOU Sunday!!

So I have been a little preoccupied lately with school (only one more week left!!!!) and the fact that I am having this baby in T minus 5 weeks....SCARY (lots of preparing to do still)!  I have been a bit of a slacker with my posts, so I thought I would grace you with my bloggy face today, haha so excited aren't you!

Any who, I am jumping on to Keely, over at MannLand5's, Getting to know YOU (me) Sunday expedition!  I haven't done it in awhile, so here we go!
To play..copy the questions..answer them on your blog..then go back to MannLand5 and link on up!

The questions..
1. If you could star in any movie genre..what would it be..romance..horror..comedy..suspense or action?
A dramedy FO SHO!  Give me a good comedy mixed in with a little sexiness with one of my FAVE comedians, say Paul Rudd or Vinceypoo or really any of Jennifer Annistons dramedy costars (Sorry Mr. Will Ferrell just doesn't fit the sexiness bill for me, but he is one of my fave comedians of ALL times), and I think you have a hit!

2. Do you recycle?
I am a recycling queen, thankyouverymuch!  Emma does however love to play with the recyclables, annoying to say the least haha.

3. Have you ever been to a strip club?
haha, unfortunately yes!  Once when we went to New Orleans several years ago we went to a male strip club and then 3 years ago one of my guy friends dragged one of my girl friends and I to a female strip club at like 1am, very classy Shelby!  Not so much my thing.

4. Do you have a nickname?
Nope, can't really shorten Shelby.

5. What's a name you can't stand to be called?
Anything offensive really, but other than that I am very easy going here people!!

6. What are your Summer staples?
Flippies, sundresses, Margaritas or Miller Lite beers all on the beach.  Sorry I was just day dreaming!

7. What was the last thing you bought for yourself?
Yikes, I hate how tough this one is for me!!  I would have to say my coach shoes and black flip flops for this season, but that was like 2 months ago!  Dressing an almost 9 month pregnant body leaves a lot to desire so I stick to buying things for others.

8. Are you happy with your boob size?
They are pretty damn voluptuous right now, but post baby #1 and pre being prego with baby #2 they were pretty deflated and I just feel like thats going to happen again, boo!

So there we go folks, now you know a little more about moi!  Now it is time to ready myself for a friends baby shower, so have a fabulous Sunday to all and to all a good afternoon!

Thoughtless Thursday back at it again...

Happy Thursday, almost Friday at this point!  Emma and I had a busy day filled with homework and allergies and being best friends!

Anywho, we all know what Thursday iiiiis...Katie over @ Life in the Fulmer Lane's Thoughtless Thursday, woohoo!!

So I chose to do a little flashback to Countryfest 2007, Yup a little Kenny Chesney tailgating action!  The good old days, when babies and pregnancy were no issue for this girl!
{We got temporary tattoos and OBVIOUSLY had to show them off}

{My shirt is on, the straps are just off, apparently I wanted to be a hoochie MAMMA!  Sidebar, how adorable is my husband!}

{My lil sis found her way over to our tailgating area!}
{We are all so sober, notsomuch!}
{Straps are up must mean this is from the beginning of the day, it was a scorcher out there folks!}
{Getting shielded from the sun and our buzz on!}

Good times!  Although Kenny has said farewell to his Countryfest summer touring for awhile, we will still be going out and tailgating another country concert this summer!!  I can't wait to be able to join in on the festivities, WOOHOO!!

So head on over to Katie's bliggty blog and link up your Thoughtless Thursdayness, and also wish her a Happy 5 Year Anniversary with her Mister (it's tomorrow)!

Wishful Wednesday...Glee!!

Hump day is once again upon us and it is one mighty fine day, if I do say so myself!  70 degrees outside and I got to hear my little Izzie's heart beating fast and furious!

Anywho, once again it is Wishful Wednesday over at The Seattle Smith's...
'I wish' .... I could be a GLEE character for an episode and it would NO DOUBT be Sue Sylvester!

{Source} For both pictures (above & below)

An obvious pick would have been Rachel, because lets face it she is so uber talented and oh yah the main character, but I went a different path.  I chose Miss Sue Sylvester because she is so OUTRAGEOUS and you know you keep watching to see what shenanigans she comes up with!  There is also the minor factor that I was a cheerleading in high school and she is portraying exactly what it was like for me in high school hahaha, jk people jk!  I am and was not a hoe fo sho!

So for those of you that are trapped in a Gleeless world, snap out of it and jump on the bandwagon, because this show is funny, entertaining, dramatic, unrealistic, and so much more!

Happy Wednesday!

A cross in the road...

Welcome to "Real talk with Shelby"...haha!!

So picture this...I am 22 living at home and partying it up with girls that I've been friends with since I was in middle school and guys that I've known since high school.  I re-meet this hot, fresh-out-of-the-Marines, guy and fall madly in love!  Fast forward 3 and a half years and I am married, mom of a 1 and a half year old and soon to be newborn, and living 40 minutes away from all that I've ever really known.  These girls I was partying with (some of my closest friends) are all either single or no where near being settled and for the most part living at home still.  The partying has settled a bit, but not for the reasons mine have drastically changed.
So basically this leads me to reflect on some current observations I've seems more and more often lately my titles as Mrs. and mommy have separated me from the pack.  I seem to be getting less and less phone calls from these girls.  I know the street goes both ways, but my days really do escape me.  I remember to call people in the morning (when everyone is at work) and then the next thing you know its time for bed!  Its a funny feeling to hear your husband get invited out by these people and not me.  I know most likely, being 8 months pregnant and all, I probably won't be going out on a Saturday night, but no one ever suggests any other plans that I can actually be involved in.  A few months ago when I did have a little gathering planned at my house I started the day in tears because everyone was close to 2 hours late (not even sure how that happens)!

Then there is my "best friend" who really only seems to have time for my when it suits her, especially when there is a big event to be showcased at.  I even had plans with her tomorrow to hang out with Emma (her goddaughter) and I and a girl we cheered with in high school and her kids.  I tried to get in touch with her today about our plans and to no avail!  Like, really?!?!

Boo Hoo to me haha!  I know I should just get over it and stop being a pregnant hormonal mess, but sometimes you just can't help it but to feel left out.  I can't help but to question myself and what I may have done or not done.  It just sucks!

Sorry for my rant...I am just not myself lately, or maybe I am just at a cross in the road of my life.  My friends seem to be traveling a completely different path then mine right now and I am having trouble finding my own myself!

...Happy Monday everyone!
