I’m so glad you’re here!
I’m Shannon, a 30-something mom of two young girls – ages 5 and 3, respectively – and a wife to my best friend, Todd. I work full-time outside of the home and am also a full-time mom (because what mom isn’t a full-time mom, am I right?). I pretty much hate any labels that categorize and/or put women in a box.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Communication Arts and a Masters in Human Services: Business Management. I’m still paying for both. I’ve lived in a suburb of Atlanta, GA, since 2011 but spent most of my life in Tampa, FL.
I’m pretty boring by nature. My favorite things include online shopping, overeating, sarcasm, outdoor country concerts, 90’s R&B and hip-hop, the snooze button, and the Oxford comma. My hobbies include snuggling my kids, annoying my husband, reality TV binging, buying things I don’t need, and dreaming of ways to become wealthy enough to hang by the pool all day while a cabana boy serves me fresh margaritas. My life’s goal is to become a lady of leisure who “does lunch” and orders overpriced salads with a side of truffle fries.
I love Jesus.
I cuss a little.
I’m really bad at math.
Carbs are my lifeline.
I love things that sparkle.
Yoga pants are my jam (cliché but true).
Sallie Mae is my arch nemesis.
You can count on me to keep it real.
