Hi there! Before we get blogging, I wanted to tell you all a little about myself.
My name is Shelby Morgan Varra. I am 22 years old. I currently work at a mortgage company as a loan processor. I attended the University of Northern Colorado majoring in Musical Theatre for two years and then decided to continue school online through Colorado State University Global. I am currently majoring in Project Management.
On the side of mortgage and school, I also sing, act & dance as a part time job and hobby. I am consistently and currently performing in professional musical theatre productions around Colorado.

I am also blessed enough to have been hired by a wonderful company called Wands & Wishes Occasions as a performer. My job is to go to children’s birthday parties as their favorite Disney character! So yes– I get to be an ACTUAL PRINCESS for work. It is simply magical!
If you can’t tell, I like to stay busy! 🙂
Now less about me and more about my family! To me, family is everything. I am lucky enough to be VERY close to my fam bam. Always have, always will be. I was that kid in high school that would hang out with her parents more than her friends… Not because I had to but because I wanted to. LOL!
My family consists of my momma, Tisha (who is my best friend for life), my daddio, Darren, and my brother, Nick (we are 18 months apart).
Nick is actually marrying the love of his life September 2nd, 2017! His fiancé, Alice, is the most kind & beautiful human I have ever met. I am lucky enough to be her Maid of Honor! So get ready for the bridal posts!
As much as I would like to fill this section with some beautiful love story, I can’t. I was married at 21 years old to a man who I thought was the love of my life.
We are currently going through a divorce. After he was unfaithful we could never get back to where we should have been. It is one of the hardest, most challenging things I have ever gone through. Life throws us curve balls my friends. I want you all to know that you are more than welcome to reach out if you need someone to lean on. Someone to relate to. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
Now onto a happier note– I recently bought my first home! CRAZY I KNOW. I am obsessed and could not be more excited . I feel like I finally have the life sized doll house I always dreamed of as a kid. It is located in a smaller town, Parker, CO. I love the area and hope to be here a long time. I can’t wait to share my DIY fails with you! 🙂
No babies yet for me! The closest I’ve got to that is my pup named Frankie. She is quite the princess! Frankie is a Teddy Bear mix (Bichon-Shitzu-Poodle). I named her after Frankenstein because her front arms are so long. She walks so funny, it’s like she has never walked before! She is spoiled rotten and loves every minute of it.

My goal through this blog is to share things that you feel you can relate to. I by far am not perfect and I never want anyone to ever think that. I will talk about life in general, fashion, family, and quite frankly– whatever comes to mind! I love trying new things and hope to be able to share those experiences with you. I am easily inspired and want to be able to inspire others too! I feel I am in a place in life where events will make great memories and stories that I can share. I am just a normal chick that loves to laugh A LOT, eat a LITTLE too much, and explore this BEAUTIFUL world! Please subscribe if you are brave enough to join me on this crazy ride! 🙂
