Get to know me a little better!

While I am trying to get more personal, I can attest it’s been years, I think since I’ve done a ‘facts about Shelby’ here on the blog! I was tagged by Living Los Angeles, and am excited to tell you a little bit more about myself!

Share your profile picture: this is the photo on my Facebook and Instagram accounts. I have all those ‘other’ social medias but don’t update them often, at least not picture wise…Anyways! I took this one on Valentine’s day, wanted to show off my new top from Elegantees plus Travis brought me home flowers the night before, which I love but also hate because our cats try to eat them, so I don’t get to enjoy them as much as I would pre-cat lady.

Probably why I don’t wear lace up shoes very often.

    1. Unfortunately, it’s not a smell my husband loves so I have to wait and have my cup after he’s headed off to work!
