Happy Birthday Seth Brooks

Brother, Best Friend, Hero

 Brother, we have been through so much together, and as my slogan goes we have found beauty in every battle. 
 You have always believed in me, you have been my number one fan when it comes to anything and everything. You are always pushing me to do better and follow all of my dreams.  Thank you for always taking time out of your day to talk to me and for actually caring about what is going on in my little life. Seth you are always so proud of me, of everything i accomplish, big or small and that always means so much.

   When i was little of course i bugged you...that happens when your parents decide to have a baby when they have a 10 and 7 year old, it wasn't my fault i was an adorable curly headed pint sized princess hahaha, it just happened. But thank you for being such a great example for me. I know that your world was a bit shaken when all of a sudden at 7 you had to put on the big brother role, but you have done a freaking great job.

 Thank you for always dragging me along everywhere with you, late night applebees, cvca games, people houses, i was basically your shadow at times. I remember one time mom and dad were out of town and you and angelo dressed me up in a throwback chris webber jersey and stretched out my jeans and put a hat sideways on me, i was in like the 4th grade and thought i was the coolest person ever. 
Thanks for teaching me about rap music at a very young age. "Im slim shady" "whats my name? snoop dawggg! what do i like to do? hustle and ball!" "whoop there it is" "gunna catch me ridin dirty" although mom wasn't always happy with the songs i was singing as an 8 year old i was....haha thanks for always making me feel cool.

Thanks for always being willing to beat up anyone who hurts my feelings. I always about die laughing when i tell you i like a boy and your first reaction is "he hurts you he dies." so funny. And everytime any friend is jerk you absolutely flip out and i love it. Thank you for being so protective. Keep it up.

Sethy thank you for being there for me through every trial i have faced, being a consistent prayer warrior and being an amazing example of what a Godly man should look like. 

I love you Seth Brooks, you are the best big brother anyone could ever ask for. 

Love, Shelby Elyse

Tyler Hilton...Marry Me!?

So on monday night i went to a Tyler Hilton concert at the Auricle in Canton with my friend Erin. Let me just say that i LOVE tyler. his music is incredible. i think the way he puts words together on a page is pure magic. his voice is so raspy and honestly pretty sexy. i dont know if papa t would approve of me saying that but too late.
well anyways, i stood in line after the show to meet the guy, and i might have fallen a little in love. i walked right up to him with a big smile and just said "whatsup tyler hilton!?" like we had been friends for years and years. he was so kind and signed my cd for me. Erin and i talked to him for a minute but then went to wait at the tables to get a picture. Well we waited till basically everyone was gone from the venue except me, Erin, and a few girls we became friends with during the show.
 He came up and said "do we need some pictures ladies?" so Erin took a pic of the two of us and i obviously put on my shelby charm and started flirting up a storm with this famous guy. He looked down and recognized my little oxford shoes and goes "woahhh your shoes are badass!" excuse my french! (or his) we got to talking and i asked him if i came to his show in Columbus in a few weeks if i can sing stars go blue with him. He promised i could as long as i remind him and we shook on it.
I took my hair down and shook it all out and said "look i have crazy hair, i'll wear it down to the show and thats how you'll remember" Then he basically gave my head a massage and i was dying inside. He loved my hair! I then remembered that i didnt want him to feel my giant scar on the top of my head ( because it feels like a mountain range from the plates and stuff ) cause then he'd think i was a freak so i kind of jerked away.
But anyways we were laughing so hard and i just kept high-fiving him and i said "well okay tyler hilton i'll see you at your show!" and his response "no ill see you at our show!" hahaha i was literally flipping out inside!
So May 8th im headed to columbus to hopefully sing with this incredible guy!!! Who knows "we might get a chance to talk and talk might lead to dancing maybe dance might lead to dates, then dates to ageing!"

Well look at the pictures if you wish!

Blessed by a Heavenly Daddy,

Shelby Elyse Taylor
