Partying with the UBP2011

It's time again for the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom.  The party goes until April 8th, so you can join in, too!

If you are new here from the party, I'm Shell and this is Things I Can't Say- all the things I probably shouldn't say outloud irl unless I want to be given grief from family and friends for actually stating my opinions! But here, I can spill it all!

From parenting fails- and there are a lot with my three boys, to marriage, to trying to figure out friendship after motherhood- it's all here.

Every Wednesday, I host a Pour Your Heart Out linky where you can write a post that you consider is heart-pouring and link up with us.

And every Friday, I have a Blog Friend Feature(BFF) where I feature a blogger that you should be reading.

I love twitter- you can find me there @shellthings or like me on facebook- you can do that right in my sidebar!

Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to leave the link to your Blog Party post and I'll go visit you, too!

How nice to have an outlet for things you can't say! I've considered starting up a truly anonymous blog where I could share more freely, but truly anonymous doesn't really exist and a fourth blog would probably kill me.
