About Me

I’m Shell, a 20-something mama living in Las Vegas with my four-year old son, Shane, five year old fur baby, Bella Notte, and my husband Justin, who is the epitome of my “high school sweetheart” as we’ve been together since my freshman year of high school {&finally married in March 2013}. We are also expecting our second little one, due February 6, 2014!

I worked as an administrative assistant in college, took two years off after having Shane, and then went back. But I missed being a stay at home mom too much & so since May 2012, I’ve been a full time mommy & blogger! I love being able to stay home with Shane- it has always been a dream of mine to be able to enjoy this time of my child’s life. I just wish Justin didn’t have to work so hard to make it happen, but honestly? He’s a hard worker; he’d be doing it anyway.

I have been blogging at {Not Quite} Susie Homemaker since January 2010. Since then, this blog has evolved very much and I am excited to see where it will go. I love sharing yummy recipes, great products & of course the obligatory photos of my kid. I love blogging because I’ve gotten to know so many wonderful people that I wouldn’t otherwise have met and every day I get the opportunity to share products and companies that I’m passionate about with my readers.
