Ultimate Blog Party

I adore the Ultimate Blog Party- this is my third year participating and every year I’ve found great new blog friends because of it!

If this is your first time here, welcome! I’m Shell and while this blog is Things I Can’t Say, it’s definitely not blank! This is my space to say all those things that I think but don’t necessarily spill to the moms on the playground or in the school pick up line.

I’m a former Yankee turned Southern beach girl by marriage and I have three little boys: 7, 5, and 3… and no, we aren’t trying for a girl: having three kids in a span of less than 3.5 years was quite enough for us!

My three little pirates

On this blog, you’ll find post about parenting, marriage, and all things mom: the ups and downs… but always completely honest.  Every Wednesday, I host a Pour Your Heart Out link up which encourages other bloggers to open up and blog about what is important to them.  On Fridays, I turn the blog over to a guest for Things They Can’t Say.

I love to chat on twitter and facebook, too! You can also find me at How to Rock Your Blog, where my blogging partner Ashley and I teach online workshops for bloggers.

Thanks for stopping by! Introduce yourself in the comments and I’ll be by to visit! Ultimate Blog Party 2012

  2. How upset am I that when I went to Target and saw those adorable foam swords, there weren’t any left for my kids! Argh! I SO wanted one for BG1 at least!

    This is the first time I’ve heard of this party, but looks good! Sigh, to have at least ONE boy in my life?!? I’d love it! haha, your boys look like such fun :)
