Shey B

hello there.


I know I keep talking about things I plan on blogging about.  I keep saying I’m going to bring back “What’s In My Grocery Cart?”.  But as you can see from the crickets around here I haven’t done so yet.

I could go blaming that I’m pregnant and tired.

I could blame it on the fact that we’re moving back to North Carolina and I’ve been packing.

I could blame it on a numerous amount of things.

Fact is… I have had time to blog.  My kids have been with my parents since June 12th in North Carolina.  So I have been kid free (I miss them terribly – but will see them in a couple of weeks).  I read 16 books in July and am almost done with my 2nd book for August.  So yeah.  Time is something I do have.  It’s not that I’m saying I don’t have time.  I just don’t feel like blogging.  There’s nothing that I’m doing lately that has really inspired me to want to write a post.  I haven’t sewn since early June either.

Another fact about me… I hate blogging or posting things to just fill up my blog.  And that’s what I did last week when I posted my first giveaway in a ton of months.  I did it only because I hadn’t posted anything on my blog for a while.  Now.  If you follow me on Instagram (username @shey_b), I post plenty there.  I don’t really care for reading blogs that just post to fill the space, and I hate that I did that last week.  But I rarely do it.  Because let’s face it, if I don’t feel like blogging, then I’m just not going to blog.  Because I don’t really blog for the sake of blogging, I don’t blog to gain more readers, I don’t blog to be liked.  I blog because I want to.  I know I’m not as well liked as I used to be, and that’s ok with me.  This is the internet!  I realize that those that say nasty things about me, those that suddenly stop liking me because I’m pregnant, those that have rumors to spread… well, that’s ok.  Because I don’t want to know them.  They really haven’t given me a chance, so why should I give them one.  Sounds like a jerk comment, but it’s true.  If people want to treat each other like trash because it’s the internet and they can hide and point fingers, then so be it.  I don’t want those types in my life.  And I certainly don’t want people in my life that “can’t handle” being friends with me because I’m pregnant!  Jeez!  Being pregnant is a blessing and something no one should have to feel sorry about.  Ever.

(14 weeks pregnant this week)

Anyway… just got off base here.  I’m just writing to basically say that I’ll be around, but not a lot.  I’m only compelled to post when I really want to, not because I feel like I should or I have to.  And I feel like that’s how blogging really should be.


See you soon!









  1. Um, I have no idea why someone would stop liking/reading, etc. because you’re pregnant. That’s SO sad! And I agree with you about blogging when and if you feel like it! The pressure to blog daily gets to me sometimes!

  2. I agree 1000%! And you’re right, you should NEVER be sorry for being pregnant!

    P.S. I love belly photos!!! <3

  3. what…?!!! people are craaaazy! and you are so right – blogging should be an outlet for when you want to write, not work or fillers. and loving that little pic of you cute tummy with you growing baby – eeeek! <3

  4. Aww. That is so sad why some would be that way because you’re pregnant…and this coming from someone that has dealt with infertility! Pregnancy IS a blessing and everyone has their own story and journey. I, for one, am very excited for you! :)

    And I totally agree with you on the blogging. I blog when I can/have something to say. It seems so different than when I first started blogging and now I see all this “take your blog back” stuff and I really have no clue what it is all about. I just blog. Not to be popular or gain readers, but as an outlet. It is what it is I suppose!

    {PS LOVE the baby belly!}

  5. I still like you. :) Don’t feel like you have to write unless you feel like it. I think after being such a well known blogger/shop owner it will take awhile for you to adjust to blogging just for your own enjoyment.

  6. That’s crazy that someone would stop reading b/c you’re pregnant. What’s wrong with people? Take care of yourself and the little bun in the oven.
