Hey guys! This is Kelley, owner & contributor of The Best Crowe’s Nest. I’m excited to introduce you to my “nest.” My husband Kyle, son Landyn Carter, and daughters’ Lavery Elizabeth and Lakelyn Elaine.
I’ve talked on this blog previously about where my kids names came from. Landyn Carter is named after the character Landon Carter in Nicholas Sparks book, A Walk to Remember. Lavery is named after Cameron Mathison’s character Ryan Lavery on the now (sadly) defunct soap opera, All My Children. And Lakelyn was going to be named Langston (which I got from another defunct soap opera, One Life to Live,) but we changed it after listening to groans from family and came up with Lakelyn. (I love her name and don’t regret changing it, but don’t do what I did. If you love a name, don’t let anyone talk you out of it!)
So basically, I love soap operas? But, seriously….
I am a yankee at heart living in the Carolinas. My husband and I were both born and raised in New England, but have been living in the suburbs of Charlotte, NC for the past 8 years.
I started blogging as a way to keep family in the loop of my kids. Since my childhood dream of walking the red carpet and practicing my Oscar winning speech (no really… I used to dress up during award shows and pretend I was among the stars walking the red carpet when I was a kid), I’m always wanting to stay on top of what’s what in Hollywood.
I’ve had some awesome experiences in the last few years and some exciting travels I’ve documented. I love concerts and spending time with friends and family. Carrie Underwood, Justin Timberlake, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, and MercyMe were some of my 2019 adventures and I can’t wait to see what’s to come in the next year!
I have a lifelong love for Justin Timberlake. If you follow me on Instagram, follow along to my shenanigans with Justin Barbie all over NYC and Charlotte, and drool at my concert videos from the front row of his Man of the Woods Tour in TWO cities! I may have even snuck the Barbie on the set of Good Morning America and took a pic with Michael Strahan.
I love Jesus, am so thankful for the amazing friends that have been placed in my life, and I thank the Lord every single day for my husband. He’s my rock and I don’t know what I would do without him (even though I pick on him from time to time on social media.)
Enjoy & thanks for stopping by!
