What’s a Myerland?

Every story must have a beginning, middle, and end. My name is Shanisty Ireland, and I’m 29 years old. On television, I go by my maiden name, Myers. At work, everyone calls me “Myers”, until someone had the bright idea to call me “Myerland”… I laughed so hard, and I guess it stuck.

My husband and I were married on July 23, 2011 in Destin, Florida.
It was a fairy tale. Only our immediate families. Twenty people total attended, just the way we wanted it. My father-in-law married us under the sunset, it was exactly what I always imagined my wedding day would be!
From the sugar coated beaches, we flew off to an adventure packed honeymoon in Montana and Wyoming. Hiking, fly fishing, exploring Yellowstone, great meals and gorgeous scenery.

Back in Alabama, our lives are 90 miles apart. Jeff works in Montgomery, and I am a news anchor/reporter in Birmingham. But, we are thankful to have great jobs…and two beautiful girls!

Amelia. Don’t call her overweight, she’s just “fluffy”, and as human as an animal can be.

And, Molly who loves to cuddle! She’s strong, athletic, active… pretty much everything her sister isn’t.
The girls and I go back and forth from Birmingham to Montgomery. Honestly, it keeps things exciting!

From juggling a job I love, and attempting to become domestic… there is hardly a dull moment in our lives!!
