Meet The Blogger: Shelle

Meet The Blogger

Name: Shelle Blok

Age: 31

Kids #, age & sex: Two Kids.  DCar who is male and 8 yrs old, and PeePs who is female and 5 years old.

Marital status: Married for 10 years.

1. How many years in your current relationship: 12 years.

2. Have you ever been divorced?: No

***If so how many times?:

What do you do for work: I work for an airline as a Aircraft Routing Specialist and I do photography on the side, but I don't count that because I WUV it. :)

Education: Let's see... I finished High School.  Went to two years at the community college where I live, and then Graduated at Brigham Young University with my Bachelor's in Marriage, Family, and Human Development.  With a Minor in kissing boys. ;)

Blogs you contribute to: Well this one. Obviously.  And my very own personal blog over at BlokThoughtsnmore.

Religion: LDS, or Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or Mormon as others not of the religion generally refer to it as.

Political affiliation: Well if I must choose, then I lean to Republican.  But I go with the candidate that is closest to what I believe, and could actually win, and vote that way... because I don't want to waste my vote.

Basic philosophical leanings (liberal, conservative, confused): I'd say conservative.

What is your motto in life?: It changes with my mood.  Like sometimes it's "Get out of my way or I'll throat punch you!" or "Life is like a box of chocolates... ".  Ya know.  Changes with my mood.  But I'd say one of my most favorite quotes is this, "Don't give up what you want most, for what you think you want now."--because it applies to so many facets of life.

Who has had the most influence in your life?: I'd say my Mom.  Seriously.  She's threaded in some way into everything of my life.  I'm told I even look like her when she was young.  She's my best friend and one of my greatest confidante's.  But then again... my sisters have influenced so much and my brother's have played their part... and I wouldn't have some of my best characteristic traits if it wasn't for my father... nor my legs.  So I'd have to make that wider and say my family???

Why did you start Blogging? To put something up for family to see and friends on what we were doing.  We had just recently made a big move and left a lot of friends and loved ones.  So we wanted a place they could come to, to catch up.

But then I had some co-workers tell me I talked to much... I didn't like that at all, and I wrote about it... and some random people started commenting on it.  And the validation was addicting.  And like a train wreck I continue to write my thoughts down.

*What is the most favorite post you have written on any blog you contribute to?: I'm my worst critic every about anything I write. But I started to write a series of short stories that were all connected to make a whole story.  I only published two... though the story has continued.  My need to keep changing them stopped me from continuing to publish them... but I like them because it is imperfect and yet, that is me and it's authentic? What I Imagine Heaven Would Be... or I did THIS one which is a play on a meme I did, because I kinda don't like MeMe's and this particular person put my name down for one just to spite me, so I made it interesting (Which means I was totally sarcastic).

I decided to do the last two questions Via Vlog to switch it up a bit:  I do a sexy trick with my mouth so don't miss it... :)

I mention Ken (sorry Ken I don't remember your blog! oops. But I know you love facebook!) and PapaK in the blog (HERE is the post I was talking about)... it's only fair that I link up! :)

Hope you all have a good weekend!!!




Welcome to the Garden of Egan said...

Welcome to the Garden of Egan said...

PorkStar said...

LMFAO about your minor in the education section. Very interesting insight into your life. Very interesting video and the mouth tricks, so totally sexy, epecially for those of us that are royal freaks. : )

Oh yeah, i forgot the video wasn't all about mouth tricks. Good thoughts on relationsips as well, glad to hear you have sucha a cool relationship with hubby.

You are pretty as a speckled pup.

If you let your hubs in the cavernous expanse of your cranium, where sound echos all he saw was monkeys doing cartwheels!

Love the vlog! Great answers!

Gucci Mama said...

You are so dang cute. I can't believe you don't iron your sheets, though. We'll have to talk about that. There is nothing, NOTHING like sleeping in freshly laundered and ironed sheets. Aaah.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

I don't iron my sheets either. ;)

LUB YOU, Shelle Belle!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

GOE-Oh! Monkey Mouth Move is the perfect way to describe it! lol! PapaK? You agree with that name? Thanks @ Gorgeous and the philosophy with our marriage seems to be working so far. Love that guy. Plus he's hot...

PorkStar!!! ha! You are a freak? Oh wait, you said ROYAL freak... okay that's not so bad. And yes, the blog was just about my Monkey Mouth Move... nothing else :)

Sage--No doubt about that. Apparently monkeys and I get along. Speckled Pup? You've said that once before, but I'll have to look up in my Redneck dictionary to get the exact definition to see if that is a compliment or not ;)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

GM- Oh! I don't iron my sheets ever... but they are always laundered! But Ken wanted them wrinkled... and I like to please the masses... or at least someone... you know how it is.

CTD-That's why we are twins Crash! I was so happy to see your avatar on here... I've missed you so. Really I have, and your pie, cause you have mad skillz when it comes to making pie!

Steph said...

I did not giggle like a 13 year old girl when you said you like to "please" each other. I know you didn't mean it that way... but still. bwahahahaha

And that mouth thing. SUPER HAWT

And you are hawt in your vlogs. I do notice the absence of a Snuggie, bed head, mess in the background, and zit... ;-P

Danielle said...

Seeeee, you are the hottest blogger out there and now I have a ton of backers on that!!!!

TisforTonya said...

and now I'm trying to do that monkey mouth move... but I need to comment first so I can use the mirror... because yes, I'm a little strange like that.

the wrinkled sheet is awesome, hope Ken appreciates it!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Don't you love where YouTube decides to Freeze the beginning of your video? Sense of humor those people.

Steph--Actually, I think subconsciously, I might have meant that... because well, it's important! :) Every time I have watched the video and then thrown up in my mouth... I giggle like a 13 year old that I said that also.

You are right... where the heck is my snuggie? My bed head is too scary in the morning... Just sayin. The wrinkled sheet is covering the mess, believe me.

Danielle--I can't be the hottest when you continue to feel the need to BLOG... stop blogging and I will confirm I'm the hottest under V.K. and GM! ;)

T--you will be kicked out of the lunch club if you can't do the Monkey Move... I'm sorry to tell you. So practice really hard! ;)

Meeko Fabulous said...

Nice to get to know you even more. :)

Jack Steiner said...

Very nicely done.

The Urban Cowboy said...'re so cute Shelle, I just wanna pinch your cheeks! :)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

TUC-If you by cute... "dead sexy" especially with that awesome Monkey Move I got going on... then I get it. ;)

Just Sayin.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

That is suppose to say... If you mean by "cute"...

I'm just doing awesome today.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Meeko-- Your up on Monday... :) Your own version of it. YAY!

Jack--why thanks. Glad you came by here--not that I threatened your life, but because you truly felt the need to come over and meet me! :)

The Urban Cowboy said...

Hi Shelle...I actually was thinking more along the lines of "baby cute" ;)

i'm just sayin...

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Dang. That's what I thought. I was hoping sexy because I always just get "cute".

Why can't a girl fish for a compliment and get it once in a while!!!

At least my girls have my back.

Just Sayin.

UP said...

Hotter than smoke!


The Urban Cowboy said...

Oh, are officially on my Hot Sauce list. :)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

UP- I understand now why you have been married so long... You get it. Teach TUC!

TUC- uh huh... I bet u say that to all the "cute" mommy bloggers fishing for compliments!

Between cute and speckled pup and darling I'm apparently still in pre-school. :)

Emily said...

You're such a babe! And funny to boot--the whole enchilada! ;)

Papa K said...

Hey! Thanks for the linkage!! Usually my blog will notify me when someones linked to me but it failed spectacularly!!

Anyway... I laughed out loud at you face. That's pretty good! I haven't seen alot of people who are able to do that! Pretty good.

Always enjoy reading your stuff. Thanks for letting me post a few things on here... it makes me feel so... so... professional or something.

Anonymous said...

I am going to take a step out of pre-school and say you are pretty smoking HOT! And I am not just saying, I am talking from personal experience. Love you, babe!

vixen kitten said...

Dang, you are adorable! Seriously.

Beautiful...and that voice. You should be selling on informercials!

I loved this post, and especially the vlog. You answers totally matched what I imagined your personality was like. That is a very good thang!

Anyway, I am honored to be included on the list. Truly, you have no idea how flattered I am. I'm gonna go now, so all y'all don't see me blushing.


wendy said...

That's it in a nutshell.
You are a NUT...Shelle
and a cutey patooty at that....I can say that cause I am old and you are the same age as my daughter...well actually she is one year older then you.

I love the whole vlog thing...I have not a clue how to do that, and probably takes "stuff" to hook up that I don't have.

nitebyrd said...

Nice to know more about you, Shelle! I'll have to come back to watch your vlog. You're so techy!
