Finish the Sentence Linkup!

Finish the sentence link up with Jake and Holly! My very first linkup EVER! I am so excited, I feel like this is a big moment in my blog history!
1. I always pick _____________ over ______________. wine over beer.. well, wine over anything really. But especially beer.. Beer drinkers of the world.. why? Does beer taste better to other people than it does to me? Yuck.

2. Look at the size of those... teeth. I got big uns. true story, when me and Jesse first started dating his exgirlfriend sent him a text telling him she hopes he is happy with his new "buck toothed"girlfriend.. womp womp.

3. I recently learned....
that blogging is hard! how am I supposed to have something to write about all of the time? i am looking forward to the time when i am used to this and coming up with a post is easy.

4. Only when no one is looking... do i sing in my car. y’all, in my car I am like Whitney Houston and Christina Aguilera rolled into one, ONLY BETTER. But only when no one is looking and especially when no one is in the car with me, they obviously mess up the acoustics.

5. I lost my.... Keys on Monday and mind on Tuesday.. seriously. My boyfriend took my keys to work Monday and I worked 21 hours straight on Tuesday! That’s a long time to be looking at a computer screen, by the end I felt like my eyes were in the wrong holes.

6. I was certain I'd be... rich and famous by now.. what happened? It could be that I have zero talent or passion for anything anyone could ever be famous for but dang, can a sister not win the lottery or SOMETHING?!

7. There is not enough liquor in the world for me to.... try the Zumba classes at the gym alone.. I want to do them so bad, but I am so uncoordinated and I have all this booty and absolutely no rhythm! With a friend I won’t care and we can laugh at each other while we learn. So until I find a friend to go with me or make friends with someone at the gym, I won’t be going.

8. I just finished... tanning. in a tanning bed.. and it was FABULOUS. Judge me all you want but I literally feel better after tanning.. you can’t get that feeling with a spray tan, you just can’t.

9. Why does everyone have to be... so rude! seriously, every where i go there are people who are just rude.. i’m talking like, people working in a business.. don't get snatched up!

10. It's very rare when I... have plans to do things and actually keep them.. for instance right this very second, I am supposed to be sewing some bibs for a friend to take to a baby shower and I am typing this post instead..

11. If I were a dog... I would snuggle all day.. and maybe see what pooping in the yard is like, ihear it’s nice.. or so this angel says..

12. I don't believe...
that we will be leaving the country in less than two months!! Ahhh!! I am so excited.. we are going on a cruise to Belize, Bay of Mahogany, Isle of Roatan, and Cozumel.. This is our second cruise and I absolutely can not wait for 7 days of no cell phones, unlimited room service, spa time and enjoying the sweet life with my man, I could not be more excited!!

Well, that was exciting! I am ready for another linkup. What are your favorites?

What I did on Workout Wednesday.

          Yesterday was a pretty good day. My boyfriend, Jesse, decided to start a blog. It is a blog for “outdoorsmen” and probably where he will call me out on my crap if things get too crazy over on my blog. He said something about me being a drama queen, whatever. You can check him out at and you totally should. Anyway, back to what I did Wednesday.
          First of all I worked 21 hours Tuesday. I have a weird job where that can happen sometimes. So I worked from 6 a.m. Tuesday morning to 3 a.m. Wednesday morning. Which means I didn't wake up to start the day until about noon.

          First me and Jesse went to have lunch. This is my biggest problem. Aside from never working out, I love to eat. I don’t eat because I am bored or sad or whatever.. I eat because I am hungry and I like the way food tastes! I can’t be the only one who feels this way.. Right?

After we got home I went to the tanning bed, I know it’s bad, hush. It makes me feel better and I pretend that I am melting away calories while I am in there. Then came home, did some things around the house with Jesse until we went to the gym.

I did day one of Couch to 5k (C25K for the cool kids). I can’t even do it. Seriously.. I got half way through and just jalked the rest of the way. What it a jalk, you ask? A jalk is a jog that turns into a walk. Not to be confused with wogging. Which is better than a jalk, it is a job that starts out as a walk, much more intense. Anyway, I finished C25K while Jesse ran about 85 times further and faster than me then we did “arms”. What I mean is Jesse showed me which machines were the arm machine and how to use them. 

So, what did you do for workout Wednesday? Also, if you haven’t yet, read my last blog where I tell about myself and comment which bloggers inspire you, cause I needs ta know, okay?! Do any of you watch Glozell? If not, you probably didn’t get that.

I titled this post "Choices" I guess it could have been titled "About Me", "Who am I?", or a number of other things, but I will leave it at "Choices". Because that is what this is about, choices (SN: if you say choices a lot, it stops sounding like a real word). More on that later, lets get started with the About Me part, I promise to keep it short, I hope..

My name is Heather. I take an annoying amount of selfies. Like, people make fun of me for it.. Not to my face, but they still do.. they'll get over it. I don't do it to be vain, I just need to see how I look sometimes.. okay, and, i like making funny faces AND I like annoying people on facebook with my selfies, the truth is out!

I am 25 years old and I live in the South. I love it here. I've never lived anywhere else but I am still pretty sure it's the best place to live, ever. I like fishing, I hate hunting, I am in love with Harry Potter and Mean Girls. 

I have a boyfriend named Jesse. He is pretty much the best boyfriend ever. He always tells me that I am pretty when I don't feel pretty and he will be silly with me whenever I want. I don't know what I would do without him!

And a dog named Rylee. He is awesome. He likes to snuggle and listens to my secrets. He also looks dang good in a sweater. 

I love my little "family". These two are seriously my favorites in all of the land!

My blog will be "semi-anonymous", at least for now. What do I mean by semi-anonymous? Basically, I will share pictures of myself, my boyfriend, and my dog but I am not planning on sharing this with my friends or other family members, at least not yet. I don't think I am ready for everyone I know to read what I post, at least not until I am comfortable writing.

Now, lets get on to the "choices" part of this, shall we? Let me tell you, I make horrible choices. I eat bad, I could go to the gym but I don't, I lay in the bed for way too much of my day. I am fat and I am lazy and it is my own fault.. until now. From this point forward, I will make GOOD choices. I will go to the gym, even when Jesse is working. I will eat better, and I will cook healthy food. 
Which comes back to the point of this blog.. to make friends! Friends who keep me accountable.. who have gone through what I am going through.. who are going through it right now. I have been through this too many times to count. Started a diet, lost a little weight, stopped, gained the weight back.. BUT NOT ANYMORE. I am sick of the way I look, I am sick of the way others look at me, and I am sick of the way I feel.
So, I guess it all comes down to this.. I will be skinny again.. I will look good.. and I will feel good! 

I was inspired to start a weight loss blog by,, and I am also totally in love with Holly from, Whitney from  makes me want to move to Florida everyday, Karly from is the funniest blogger i have ever read, and Kate from makes my hair beautiful.
Do you have a  blog? Post the link in the comments! I promise to check you out and leave you comments! Which blogs do you think are funny and inspiring? Who is your favorite "weight loss" blogger? Let me know! :)

The Day I Decided to Start Blogging..

Well, here we go, my very first blog post. I'm guessing this post is supposed to be me telling you a little about myself.. Do y'all know how awkward that is? Do you remember being in class and the teacher asking you to tell everyone about yourself and then thinking, "Oh God, who am I?" I feel like that's what is happening here times five because it's the internet and there are way more people to judge me here.. But since I pretty much don't care what people think and end up being the most awkward person ever anyway, I will just share with you a little about my morning so far, until I can compose a real About Me post.. 

4:00 a.m. my boyfriend's (Jesse) alarm goes off and he wakes up for work.. most of the time he is pretty good about this and doesn't bother me too much if I have gotten his clothes together the night before. Oh, he works 48 hour shifts out of town so he has to have extra clothes, underwear, his shaver, etc. I'm not a crazy girlfriend, just nice.. sometimes. Somehow he takes a shower and gets ready and is out of the door by 4:35-4:40. Don't ask me how, he is Superman I guess.
4:30 a.m. my alarm goes off.. I hit the snooze button. Shortly after this Jesse kisses me and Rylee (our dog) bye and leaves.
4:45 a.m. my alarm goes off again, I am halfway awake at this point and my dog is all the way awake so we get up and go outside.
4:55 a.m. I start getting ready.. hair, makeup, clothes, brushing teeth etc. the normal things people do when they get ready in the morning. I take a shower the night before and straighten my hair so this goes off pretty easily most days. Pretty boring so far, yes?
5:25 a.m. I am pouring coffee and getting ready to walk out of the door.. Rylee has food and water, I have my lunch ready and am about to walk out of the door, if I can only find my keys.. where are they? Key hanger? No, why would they be there? Purse? No, that would make too much sense. Kitchen cabinet? Nope, not there either. I check my car to make sure they aren't locked in there (again) and they aren't there either! Where could they be? 
By this time it is 5:35 and if I don't leave soon I am surely going to be annoying close to almost late for work (6:00 a.m. is what time I am supposed to be there 5:45 is what time my co-workers think I should get there). I try to get there around 5:50, I live about 12 minutes away from work so this is starting to get annoying. So I call Jesse our conversation goes something along the lines of this..

Me: Hey babe, just wondering, did you see my keys when you left for working this morning?"
Him: "Son of a ...!!"
Me: They are sitting on your console right beside you, aren't they?"
Him: "Yes."
Me: "Son of a ...!!"

He is now over an hour away and there is no way he can just turn around and bring them to me which, even if he did that would only make BOTH of us late for work anyway. You're thinking, "it's fine girl, just use your spare key!" HA! Laughable. I lost that thing years ago. All of my family members and friends live a couple of (albeit small) towns away, so that is out. His mom is already on the way to work, so she can't help me. So I did the last thing I wanted to do.. I called work and got them to someone to come and get me. I guess that is one of perks of not living very far from work. But what an embarrassing call to make! "Hey, I am the least responsible person in the world! Can y'all send someone to come pick me up?" Gosh!! 
        This is pretty much par for the course for me. If it's not my keys it's my purse.. or my makeup bag.. or my driver's license (how does this even happen?) or some other thing that I definitely need to live my life in a normal manner! I didn't name this blog "Miss Hot Mess Express" for no reason!

So, here we are, the end of my very first blog post. I don't think anything could describe my life better than this morning can, but I will be back soon with a real About Me post complete with pictures and everything! Thanks for reading!
