My Life in 250 Words or Less.


My friend Jenni is hosting a link up for the month of May...and I am 100% confident I will not be able to participate every day, but I AM going to link up as much as I can. 

Today we have to sum up our lives in 250 words or less. Here goes: 

 Rockin' the five-head with a bow taped to my head. Hottie batottie!

I’m Shalyn Nelson and I was born on January 17th, 1986 in Waco, Texas. I lived in a small town called Jewett, TX. which had a population of 850 people, and one blinking light. I was an outgoing little toot, loved to play barbies, and didn't grow hair until I was five years old. I grew up in a broken home and witnessed things that I would never wish on any child. I was raised by an amazing, loving mother who struggled financially, but was rich in her love. I made good grades, danced for 6 1/2 years, participated in pageants, played softball, and cheer-leaded my way through elementary and junior high. In the 8th grade, my Mom met a man on the internet and I was forced to move to Northern California for the remainder of high school. I hated starting over and had major culture shock but eventually, I fell in love with that golden state. I enjoyed high school and kept busy with sports and extra curricular activities. I was an over-achiever to the fullest. I moved back to Texas three days after high school graduation and attended SHSU. I graduated, met and married the love of my life, and now can be seen dancing around Austin, TX with him and my two pomeranians, Piper and Furlee. I'm a photographer, and I want to do something extraoridinary with my life. I have an eclectic, sensitive and youthful heart. It's my desire to see people moved by it

250...Like a boss.

  1. beautiful! ...broken families make for interesting stories and thick skin! i feel ya girl! xxxooo!

  2. aww i love the baby picture! i might need to wait to post mine so i can add in a picture.

  3. My family was broken as well, and my amazing mama raised my sister and I by herself for a looong time. I can't say I'm "glad" it was that way, but I am certainly thankful for the way it's made me today...

    Also, I hate to be *that* girl, but Florida is the Sunshine State, and California is the Golden State... officially ;)

  4. My parents have property in Marquez and I am guessing you know where that is because it is basically one of the closest towns to Jewett. We love the all you can eat fried catfish nights in that area, I feel like every restaurant has that around there.

  5. Love you girl and your big electic, sensitive, youthful heart!:)

  6. What part of Northern Cali? That's where I live! :) and that's real cool you danced for so momma was a dancer and I was too for a short lived part of my life haha!

  7. Great getting to know you! You were too adorable!

  8. We have some similarities! Broken home and a mom who worked her butt off to care for us. Oh and we moved from Illinois to California except I was entering 7th grade when we did. I think going through what I did as a child and having a mom who really loved me has definitely helped shape who I am as a mother today.

  9. What a lil cutie! I adore you and your heart so much! <3

  10. Love your story, and more importantly, love your heart :)

  11. Love getting to know you better! I came from a broken family as well but am so blessed with how things worked out! God always has a way!!

  12. Well, I just love that you were born ten days after I was ;)

  13. Sometimes broken families make for the best kids. I should know, I'm pretty amazing ;) Thanks for sharing your story - sounds like a good life, even through the struggles!

  14. Ooh yours is so good. You fit so much into those 250 words.


  15. Love it! You rock, my friend!

  16. Wow... you fit so much into 250 words. I don't think I could do that! Awesome getting to know you through this!

  17. Love pomeranians and it's funny how much you can say in 250 words. Epic sign-off by the way.
