I've read her a few times but have always found her incredibly boring (when not talking about Sean and Catherine haha!). She seems like a sweet person with a great life, but just seems to have absolutely nothing of substance to offer. The adoption thing sounded like it would be interesting but she hasn't given any info at all on it (which I'm sure is for a reason). Also, I can't figure out if they already know what child they are adopting or if they have just decided they want a girl and have chosen a name then will then give it to whatever girl they end up adopting?idontknow

Anyways… she's not a hate read (unlike that friend of hers with the CRAZY eyes and Nordstrom obsession), but she's also just not someone I think to read, and when I do, I realize how dull and boring her blogs are and forget about her again for awhile.

I think this is what I was referring to. I use to love reading her blog she just seemed so honest and real and actually blogged about things, not just shades of shay and instagram pictures but real blog post, like the one about infertility.

 

I feel like since her blog has become so big, because of her brother, everything is watered down. I understand in some ways but I do wish she would share some real life struggles since everything is not always rainbows and butterflies. 

 

I also do not think she likes Catherine at all. Which is sad, but at the same time it's not a requirement to get along with your siblings spouses. I think they are just at different stages in their lives (aka Sean and Catherine have become famew***es)

 

Oh and don't get me started on crazy eyes. She is one of the blogs I use to love but just can't anymore. I shall go to her thread and vent later.

Don't mind her so much – think she shops a lot, but is ok. She is very secure in herself and doesn't seem to be begging for compliments. What I think is weird? Her husband. The waxing of the chest combined with the admission that he uses a clarisonic… idontknow

I like her attitude. She's always so happy and positive. A little too churchy/Gap-py/ Recipe for my taste but there are way worse offenders than Shay.

Oh and my SO – manliest of manly men – admitted recently to using my Clarisonic …on… his nether regions! scared

we now have his and hers lol men can be so strange.

She's a SOMI for me too, I like her and really like that she wears affordable stuff. I read other snark-worthy blogs as a guilty please but Shay's blog is more normal life stuff. My theory on the Sean and Catherine thing is maybe she doesn't want to put too much info. out there because it most likely will be taken from her blog quoted in a magazine, I know I've seen them take a couple of stuff she's posted on her blog and put in one of the gossip mags. Just a theory though. At the same time it does seem like her and Catherine aren't BFF's because Shay and Sean used seem like they were stuck together like glue and I would think based on how much Sean used to be featured on her blog that Catherine would be as well.

On the adoption thing, for some reason I've always imagined them adopting from somewhere in England/Europe, not India based on the name they have chosen. I get that her 2 kids she already has aren't European but do have English/European names … I just think it would be weird having a Indian or even Chinese child with a very English name. If she went with a Indian or Chinese child it would make more sense to either honor the child's heritage or name the child something very American like. Who knows … confused

And Crazy eyes/Pinterest-told-me-to … don't even get me started. I can't even stand looking at her blog. Between the 1000 links and repeat "recaps" from the previous day's post she could literally post once a week and it would be plenty. She drives me effing nuts and it's SO obvious she only wants that affiliate link $$$

And crazy eyes/Pinterest has brainwashed Shay and some of their other friends, who also seem like really nice girls, to buy into all her MUST HAVES.  It is just the same stuff over and over and over.  Even without her crazy, horrible pictures, she's a GOMI for me!  She might be a good friend but she sucks as a blogger!

Eh, most families I know who have adopted internationally have given their child an "American" first name and perhaps left the child's given name (be it Chinese, Indian, etc.) as a middle name. Since she's said they're adopting from overseas, that limits it to a pretty small number of countries…an African nation, India, China/Korea/Vietnam, or perhaps somewhere in Eastern Europe? A lot of countries that used to be adoption hot spots have shut their doors.

I've read her since she was back in braces and had to go through speech therapy and so that's been a few years of subscribing to her feed. 

 I was reading old posts and saw she had surgery and/or braces….but what happened? I am genuinely curious if she had a health issue or just wanted straighter teeth. 

 

Is this the couple who runs an IKEA shipping business, or am I thinking of someone else…? I wish she would post more pics of their dream house that is being built!

Well, he must be selling a hell of a lot of insurance to be able to afford a brand new, big home and trips galore.

I go back and forth with her blog. On one hand, i like seeing her decorating/lifestyle posts, shades of shay, recommendations, etc. Its also fun to get the "behind the scenes" on Sean and Catherine. And her parents seem like the sweetest people on the planet. On the other hand, i find her somewhat smug. She seems like a sweet lady, but her (and her husband!) and so vain!!! I get the feeling that she thinks she is the expert on life and she is here to share all her tips because everyone is dying to know, when in reality she got popular because of her brother. But like i said, her tips are good, but its the attitude coming with the tips that is somewhat off-putting for me… And i agree with the poster who said that its annoying when she refers to herself as a foodie. Making simple, high sodium, random meals does not make you a chef. She is a SOMI for now.

I like Shay too! Her 'shades' posts are my favorite. I do feel like her style along with Pinterest Told Me To is sort of repetitive, but she owns that. As far as Sean and Catherine, I feel like she does a good job of respecting their privacy. I have also wondered if she really likes Catherine, due to the silence around her. Maybe as time goes on, she will open up about her relationship with her. They seem like they do well financially, but I also wonder if part of that is due to Andrew's short NFL career….that probably wouldn't hurt.

Vanilla Bean Noel – I totally get what you are saying about how her posts can come across as smug. She can write about anything (laundry and dishes) and people comment on it like crazy. I don't think she is smug, but I can see how it comes off that way sometimes.

She is for sure a SOMI for me. Pinterest Told Me To…I think she has a good sense of humor, but needs to tone it down with all the links. Her blog is really lacking in substance because it's like she just goes to the mall to try stuff on and posts links to it all. And her selfies are so strange.

 

I'm glad a thread was started though. It's always fun to discuss these bloggers…the bad but also the good.

Her husband used to play for the Detroit Lions. Although I am not sure for how long, so I have no idea if they could still be living off of that for the trips and house and whatnot. I "met" her like 5 years ago on a mommy forum and started following her blog, which at that time was just a very simple family blog with one or two comments a post, but I have to admit I stopped once Sean went on the Bachelor. It just felt weird to me! But I still like her, she has always seemed very sweet and although I hate the way she decorates her house I still appreciate the fact that she doesn't seem to care about trends and is true to herself. And I agree that her kids names (especially the one they are adopting) are pretty awful, but goodness they are CUTE!
