Hot Tamale ..Because Shanna Said So

It's so Hot! Hot Tamale that is.. This girl is unbelievable and amazing. I can honestly say she's one of my girls. I am pretty positive that if I lived in Texas, we would be great friends. So much so that her husband would probably ground us from being together. Not only is she beautiful but has the most amazing fashion blogs which irritates the crap out of me because it makes me want to spend money I don't have. She's funny which is a must in my book of crazy but she's a mommy. And who doesn't want to follow along to a woman that can do it all and be sexy at the same time. So with pleasure I give you my friend, who I would fly to the moon and back to break out of jail, Shanna.

Okay, I am not going to lie. I emailed Dusty asking if I could be part of her little Hot Tamale club because, quite frankly, I just felt left out. Actually, I think it was because I wanted to pretend, just for one day, that I am as funny and bad ass as all the other Tamales. I truly did not think Dusty would hit the reply button to my email. I thought she would say, "I am sorry, I never got your message. It must have went into my SPAM. Sorry, Shanna, I already have Hot Tamales lined up through 2015." 

Well, this usually never happens, but I was WRONG. I was shocked when Dusty DID agree with allowing me become a coveted Hot Tamale. I mean, really? I am not near as cool as she is, don't even come close to one-upping her wise cracks or have the womanly balls to say the things she says.  But, hey, for some reason she put her full trust in me today.  Dusty, I hope I don't let you and your comedian readers down.

People, I am not very witty or clever with my words, but hopefully you will find at least one thing that's worthwhile while you read along today.

Okay, so here goes.

I am married to a crazy, studly, man snack named Ross the Hoss. Paws off ladies! I have been smitten by his good looks and charm since I was in the 7th grade.  I stalked him until he finally came to his senses and stalked me back. We have been married for almost 12 years and produced two, crazy beautiful little girls. Not only are they future Miss USA contestants, they get their charming personality from no other than, Moi!

Smoking hot, right? No, silly! The boy, not me. Stop being so nice!
They will be posting as a Hot Tamale one day.  Dusty, pencil them in.

Some other tidbits that just may tickle your fancy are as follows:

I love to drink alcohol. I am by no means a lushy drunk, but I do have a
little "medication" every night. I like to call it "Mommy Juice". Here is some proof that I am not picky. And don't go calling the AA hotline just yet.  This isn't all mine, just half of it. Can you say girl's weekend?  I keep good company.
I am a die hard San Antonio Spurs basketball fan. I cannot be your friend if you say one bad thing about them. So, DO NOT remind me that they didn't make it to the World Champs.
I could eat Jack in the Box every day of the week. Just give me some popper, buttermilk ranch, two tacos and diet Dr. Pepper and I am golden.
This handsome, hairy fellow is now our family pet. Ross the Hoss found it in our yard and we just couldn't let this sweet boy go.  KIDDING!  I hate him and he freaks me out, but I am a good wife and mom and got out voted. I guess it's better than a cleaning up shit, no vet visits, no shedding and we only have to feed it once a month. Sign me up.

I throw in some real life moments too.  I mean, there is no way in hell I could achieve 5 outfit posts a week. But, shopping and putting together outfits in my #1 hobby.  I am a bargain queen and have a serious Forever 21 fetish. Does that make me lame and shallow? Don't answer that.
So, there you have it. A little square inch of me. I am an official HOT TAMALE!! Holla!

Oh hey, don't forget to come visit me at Because Shanna Said So sometime soon! Okay, not sometime NOW! 

Good gawd I love her! Go over and love her until she can't go to Forever 21 anymore or is at least disabled. Ross will thank you later. Or thank me for the suggestion.

Happy Thursday,

PS.. you wanna be a Hot Tamale, just give me a shout, or I may ask you anyway.


  1. awww I just found her recently and I love her too. I love all the Hot Tamales!

  2. Sometimes I loose my dogs for 20 minutes (or I'm too busy doing something nonconstructive and forget to watch them when they're outside, either way). I think that I would literally shit balls if that spider was missing for 20 seconds.

  3. You know I would lose my mind if I couldn't make it to Forever 21!?! Why would you want that to happen to me?? Love you, girl! This was too much fun!

  4. This was a funny post, I loved it :D

  5. Haha, I love her blog too! Haha, voted out! Love it.

  6. I found Shanna through you somehow a few weeks ago and LOOOOVE her! For a lot of reasons, but on the top of the reason board is cause of our mutual love of bballin' basketball!!

  7. Shanna is adorable! Can't wait til I'm close enough in your circle to become a tamale ;)
