Hey guys, my name is Blair. I’m not going to lie — I feel extremely awkward telling people about myself unless I’m asked a specific question, or it’s something funny. Which is pretty odd for someone who likes to write & blog. So, I’m going to just list out some basics for y’all… here we go:
I live in Raleigh, North Carolina
My husband’s name is Alex. We met when we were twelve years old and were friends for more than a decade before starting a relationship. We are an odd, nerdy, quiet couple who would much prefer watching Netflix all day than going anywhere close to representing a bar. Hell, we even got married in Vegas just to avoid commotion and attention.
I’ve lived in 7 different states. (MA, NJ, CT, NY, PA, UT, NC) If you’re curious… Utah was my unexpected favorite.
I have a 3-yr-old rescue cat named Pix and a kitten named Tora. They are filling the void until we have children. (Don’t worry, they won’t be replaced when our human kids come along)
I grew up in a small rural town in upstate New York where the cows out-populate the people.
I love school and heavily consider going back all the time. (Yes, I’m a nerd.)
I live by the simple idea that life can be a shit storm and is rarely easy. Always find humor where you can. It makes it a lot more manageable.
I’ll probably update this page when I can think of some more things to add. I’ll always answer questions if you post them below, though! Thanks for reading, guys.

My husband & I are complete nerds too! We don’t go out a lot, rather we put starwars legos together while watching the Flash.lol He’s actually from Utah, I’ve been there a few times and absolutely love it there! The mountains & the no humidity are two of my favorite parts!
We don’t have kids yet either, so our 3 doggies keep us busy! I just wanted to say hi & thanks for the follow! 🙂
Utah really is amazing. Something about the air and mountains is very serene 🙂 Ironically – my husband and I were JUST talking about looking for a Harry Potter lego set haha. Weird! We seem to have a lot in common 🙂
Lol That’s so funny! Does your husband play pc or games on like the xbox? My husband switches hobbies like crazy! Currently we’ve been playing this computer game called League of Legends.
Straaaange. My husband plays computer games. And, he’s played League probably every day for the last 4+ years haha. 🙂
oh my gosh, that’s so funny!
What’s his name? We’ve been playing all morning.lol He’s got to go to work soon, but will be back on later.
Wonderful description. I’m inspired to do something now with my own. Thanks. And really glad you stopped by my fairly new (meaning inexperienced) blog!
Thank you 🙂 That’s great!
way to roll, girl. love it! 😄 -mandy
Wow! Thanks for dropping by http://wdfyfe.net/2016/02/19/omg-cindy-crawfords-50/ I’ve been poking around your blog and, I say again, Wow! I dream about having your kind of consistent good writing.
Thank you! 😀
Hello Blair! So nice to meet you! Thanks for visiting our new blog, pscigarette! Upon brief scan of your page, I can tell I’m going to like it already! I’m a big fan of brutal, comical honesty. 🙂
Hi Blair. I wanted you to know that I’ve closed down the vpub and I’m trying something new here:
It’s a blog that everyone who wants full admin can have it, and post thoughts that may not fit their main blogs theme.
Interesting! I’ll check it out 🙂
Thanks for liking my posts. I don’t know if you are really deep into blogging enough to do this, but it would be cool to swap guest posts. Reach out to me at email@example.com
I nominated you, thanks for your support.
Thank you 🙂
Cows out-populate people? Seriously?
Loved your intro… Just one specific question: Are you on twitter or facebook?
It’s pretty small of a town 🙂 my Facebook is http://www.facebook.com/theshamefulsheep and my Twitter is http://www.twitter.com/shamefulsheep . I’m terrible and don’t post to either often. It’s something I’m working on lol
Same here but it’s always nice to be on more platforms… If I don’t see you on reader then maybe facebook or twitter can help me find you 🙂
Hi – Thanks for stopping by. I like the honesty of your blog.
Thank you for liking GROWing Pains! I’m a nerd, too!
I’m the same three (cats, coffee, crudeness) but working towards 2-1/2 (to be more polite– but, I’m not). At least it’s real, though. Thanks for rescuing the kitties, and I love Tora’s name!
Thanks! I try my hardest to be polite too. It’s rough sometimes lol. My brain doesn’t always work that way
I read some of your recent posts, and I really liked them. You are quite funny, and I love how you turn the most mundane things in life, funny.
Looking forward to more from you.
Thank you, I appreciate it 🙂 I try to find humor in everything lol.
Thank you for liking my Tease. Your opinion means a lot. I think we are kindred souls from different generations.
Thank you 🙂 we must be!
Omg your blog is amazing! So glad you liked one of my posts because now I get to read your amazing #truelifestruggles and laugh my ass off! Love it!
Thank you 😀
I really enjoy your blog. Your writing is very refreshing…..and it has originality, which is hard in a world full of things already done. Thanks for writing!!
Thank you. I truly appreciate it 🙂
I can totally relate to the awkwardness of writing about “self”. It is so strange! I’ve been meaning to stop by here and read for some time now, so I’m going to get to it now 🙂
Thank you for liking my post An Introvert on Social Media and I look forward to reading more of your writings!
Hello Blair, the name of your blog intrigues me 🙂 what is the story behind it ? I have been meaning to come over and thank you for the follow – and I will return for a wander in your paddock when I have more time to smell the roses and munh on the sweet grass. In the meantime, thanks for your visits to my pastures
‘Shameful’ is just because most of my posts are semi-inappropriate/shameful. ‘Sheep’ is a tag I’ve used for over a decade. When I was young and started online gaming my sister told me to use the tag ‘Sheep.’ I’ve been some variation of it for years in different languages and contexts 🙂
It’s a very intriguing name – thanks for the context 🙂
Hi Blair! I´m following you back from http://wideawakestate.com (my gravatar will take you to another blog) 🙂 … So, except for the husband (Im getting divorce) we have so much in common! I know it wil be fun to read you! xoxo.
I went to back to school in my forties. It was one of those goals I promised myself that “someday” I would achieve. I never regretted it. Finished my bachelors and then decided to get a masters. Funny thing is, I did it online thanks the the University of N. Carolina. Now a visit to your state is one of my goals.
Love your writing. I laugh and laugh, mostly because I am finding we are a lot alike.
Thank you! 🙂 I live very close to UNC actually! I love this state – very beautiful. Congratulations on your accomplishments. That’s awesome.
Thanks for the follow. 🙂 I like Utah, too.
