Say Hello, Will Ya?

Today is Say Hello Monday around the blog world.  Laura is hosting this really fun link up where you basically share some fun facts and some fun blogs.  Who doesn't love learning about new blogs?  I know I do. 

1. What blogs do you visit daily? Please list 1-3 of your favorites.

- Katie: Loves of Life.  I love her outlook on life, she's such an inspiration.  Her girls are adorable and she just seems like someone I'd be friends with if we met in real life. 
- Kristen: First Name Smith.  I mean, duh.  She's a blog friend turned real life friend.  She's THAT cool.  And funny.  And pretty. 
- Mandy: House of Rose.  Mandy, Mandy, Mandy...where do I begin?  Her home tours and DIY projects will blow you out of the water.  She's got a great fashion sense and a good heart. You can't not like her.

2. Are you on Instagram? If so, what is your user name?

Yep, Yep!  I'm shannondew.  Come find me and you'll see lots of pics of KP, food, and belly pics.  

3. Can we find you on Pinterest? What's your Pinterest address, and what can we expect to see you pinning most? (recipes, DIY projects, home decor, etc.)

Who isn't on Pinterest these days?  You can find me here.  My biggest boards are my Food! board {I love trying new recipes} and My Style board {I love recreating some outfits I've seen on there}.

4. What are your favorite blog link-ups to participate in? (weekly link-ups other bloggers have...any number will do...please link us to them!)

Well...obviously SO WHAT! Wednesday is #1 on my list of link-ups, obviously.  Other than that I dabble in a few others.  
Fab Fridays with Laura:  Basically you share some things that you are finding FAB for the week.
Friday Letters with Ashley:  You can write letters to anyone/anything you want.  It can be quite comical.  
Hey!  That's Pin-tastic with AP:  Find something on Pinterest and make it your own.  

5. Why do you blog?

I blog because I love it.  I love sharing things with the world.  I love "meeting" new people.  I love the tips and advice I get with the simple click of a button.  I love that I can be "friends" with people I've never met and are {in some cases} hundreds of miles away.  

6. Tell us one random fact about yourself.

4 years of blogging and I'm not sure I have any random facts that you haven't already heard.  Hmmm...in middle school {5th or 6th grade} I was so terrified of going to high school {in 3-4 years} that I made myself sick.  I stopped eating, always had a stomach ache and would only eat if other people were around.  My mom took me to the doctor and they obviously found nothing wrong with me.  I never told them the reason behind it.  Heck, my mom is probably just finding out right now too.     


  1. Love your answers! And girl, I'm totally with ya on the high school thing! I was the same way! It was a super stressful transition...

    Have a wonderful Monday!!!! Xo!!!

  2. Your middle school thing sounds like anxiety stuff! I had an anxiety meltdown when I was little and I personally didn't understand why I was having issues. I would get so worked up that I'd puke multiple times in a night and gave myself ulcers...at the age of 12! (Ish). After months of no clue we pegged it on anxiety and stress related issues and I stopped having as many issues. Funny things our minds make our bodies do!

  3. Love your blog, just stopping in to say hi! ! Your fav blogs above are some of my favorites too!

  4. I feel honored that you put me up there, thanks girlfriend.

  5. Visiting from "Say Hello" :) I've never read any of your fave blogs - I'm definitely going to check them out. And thanks for hosting So What Wednesdays - it's one of my fave link ups :)

  8. Visiting from the link up :) I was the SAME way about changes, exccept mine was going from elementary to middle school and I actually developed an ulcer. Thankfully, it never happened again after that!
