Happy Halloween!!!

   Thank the Lord it is Friday and Happy Halloween everyone!!! I will be posting pictures of my furr kids in their costumes probably this weekend. I am also going to attempt to put a costume together for myself out of the crap I already have in my closet. I wasn't going to dress up because I'm not going anywhere, but at the last minute I decided I really wanted to dress up. So I'm going to put something together and wear it while I sit on my front porch handing out candy with Audrey.

   Audrey is going as a bumblebee, one of the ones who tries to steal Pooh's honey (Winnie the Pooh theme this year). Gemma and Mowgli (Piglet and Tigger) will have to stay inside because Gemma is very protective of the house. So if anyone brings their dogs trick-or-treating, she is going to flip a shit with non-stop barking and Mowgli being the goofball dummy he is, will follow her lead. Plus Gemma was abused in the past by her previous owners. So she is going to be super scared by any brooms, swords, sticks, etc. Audrey might be a little scared too because she is still a little skittish, but it will be a good socializing experience for her. And she didn't get to socialize much outside the house this week because I didn't get a chance to take her on any of our weekly walks to get used to people and sounds, etc.

   So yesterday and this morning I drew and colored three pumpkins. Here they are...

This pumpkin I completely drew and shaded by hand from memory. Didn't use a reference picture and made up the little design on the stem

Same pumpkin from above

I did not draw this one. I printed it out, but did all of the coloring myself because I like to use my spare time coloring a pumpkin using like 15 different colors *sarcasm* but I really did use like 15 colors/ shades of color

This is another print out but I drew the eyes, design dots, carved nose, and semi-carved mouth myself. I did all of the coloring and the face and the details/ designs I drew were something I just made up on the spot, no reference used

   Well, whether you think my drawing and coloring skills are awesome or not, I'm still posting these pictures.

   Have fun! If any of you are dressing up and/ or dressing your pets or kids up for Halloween, I'd LOVE to see pictures!!!

Throwback Thursday

   Ok, so I was looking through some old photos of me from my bad girl days on an old friend's Facebook- I'm not tagged in them anymore because it was my old Facebook that was originally tagged in them and I had to get a new one so that a psycho felon ex couldn't get a hold of me and etc. etc. etc. that's a whole nother story. So back to throwbacks. This (not the felon ex) is what then led me to this post. I have a box full of old photos. I looked through the top half and took some pictures with my phone of some of my favorite photos.

   On my Dad's side of the family, I was the first grandchild, so I was also my parent's (or parents'?) first child. Not trying to be vain here or anything but I think I was like one of the cutest little girls ever. My Dad's side of the family and my parents used to just stick me on a table and stare at me and tell me how beautiful I am. And they wonder why I turned out the way I am? lol. But hey, a woman loves compliments and I am definitely one of those women- unless you're super creepy or inappropriate or something. My parents also used to take tons of pictures of me and get lots of professional photo shoots done.

   My parents had it lucky with me. They said I was like the perfect quietest baby except for when people would take me away from my Mom. I was and still am a Mommy's girl. Hope they didn't take my good baby days for granted because I became a mouthy rebellious bad girl as I grew older.

   So anyways, hope you enjoy these throwback pictures!

 My Mother had tons of dresses for me that had matching bonnets and shoes *Gag*

My innocent precious little chubby cheeked face 

 To this day, I still have a hard time not squinting my eyes like this in pictures

Ironically, this was on Halloween. I was a Princess of course. I believe this photo was taken after one of my emotional meltdowns. I was an emotional wreck starting at a very young age

 I'm assuming this was a Christmas photo

 Me pissed the fuck off because it was time to leave Ocean City, MD. I'm a Summer baby and love the beach

 Dance was a HUGE part of my life. Ahhh the days of me being 15 years old, 105- 110 lbs, TAN (I know tanning is bad for you), and thinking I was hot shit

Another dance photo doing a heel stretch. I was 16 or 17 years old. I can or could do a much better heel stretch than that but it is kind of hard to hold that position for a hell of a long time while being photographed and having everyone staring at you

 Senior pictures 

And another senior picture. In the beginning of that year, I had taken a break from tanning beds and turned to self-tanner (if you can't tell by looking at my orange knuckles)

   Oh how I love looking at old photos.

What The Fuck Wednesday

What the Fuck???

   Well, it's hump day but I won't be getting any humping action :( boo hoo hoo. This is the day that I have to constantly be like, "Come on Heather, you can get through today. Get through today and then there's only two more days of work this week." 

   So I'm pretty sure I am not the only one who came up with a "What The Fuck Wednesday," in fact I'm almost positive someone else made it up but I don't care. I think I might make this the theme of my weekly Wednesday posts. So here you go!

1.) People taking selfies with bears at the Taylor Creek Visitor Center in California Yahoo
   Seriously People??? Who the fuck in their right mind would think taking a selfie with a wild bear would be a smart and safe idea?

2.) A man in Michigan is being ordered to pay child support for a child that isn't his, which was proven by DNA testing (the Mother of the child listed his name as the Father in order to receive income assistance in the early 1990s) 
   What the fuck Michigan? Seriously, just what the fuck? And the Mother of the child even admitted that he isn't the Father.

3.) Renee Zellweger's New Face
   Ok so I know this is like last week's or even the week's before old news but this is appropriate for this post. What the fuck Renee? It is one thing to get plastic surgery, injections, etc. to look younger but your face looks COMPLETELY different besides your skin tone. You don't look like Renee Zellweger anymore. I actually like Renee's old face. Her eyes aren't even the same and I thought her old eyes were cute and feminine. 

4.) Mama June from Here Comes Honey Boo Boo dating a convicted child molester who molested her oldest Daughter, then 8.
   What the fuck June? Apparently Mama June has denied the rumors but there must be truth to this because TLC even did an investigation into these allegations and ultimately cancelled their show, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, because of this. If she truly is back with the man (or even hanging out with him as friends) who she previously dated who is the same man that molested her daughter and went to jail for 10 years because of it, then this is truly sick. Who the hell would do that? And if these rumors are true, she could risk losing all of her kids. 

5.) Kelly Lee Dekay (Fetish Model) has a 16" waist
   Of course she wasn't born this way. She did waist- training using a steel corset for 7 freakin' years! Kelly's decaying waist- pun intended. Hope you thought that was even the slightest bit funny but I probably just sound lame. Oh well, I don't care. Now back to Kelly Lee Dekay. To me, this is just gross and painful to look at. I mean doesn't her back hurt from having such a teeny waist with big tits??? I feel like when she takes the corset off and bends forward, she probably can't lift herself back up. This girl looks like her body is gonna snap in half.


6.) Nikki Ferrell dumps Juan Pablo
   What the fuck took so long??? I don't like Nikki or Juan Pablo. I started disliking Nikki because of her attitude and the way she acts on Couples Therapy. She dislikes being in the spotlight, cameras following her all the time on the show, etc. Hello, you were on a dating show on t.v. and now on another t.v. show- are you an idiot? And she's so annoying. Last week's episode she talked about her life growing up and bragged about being perfect at sports and everything she did and her home life was great and getting lost in Walmart was traumatizing for her (which she laughed at). The fuck? And I'll just say one word about Juan Pablo: Douche Bag- ok that's two words.

7.) Jennifer Hudson's Fashion Choices
   Of course I can't find all of the pictures of her recent horrid fashion choices now that I want to write this post, but I did manage to find two. Girl you look great but that doesn't mean dress like a streetwalker or let everything show. Come on Jen, get yourself together.


8.) Naomi Campbell and Mariah Carey- dress your age!
   These two women in my opinion show way too much and dress way too young. Now I'm not saying they don't have good fashion sense but these outfits are just way too revealing. These women are both 44 years old. They don't have to dress like old ladies but at least cover it up a little more. And of course, I couldn't find all of the pictures I was looking for but these will do.



How fucking cute is this?!?:
I had to add this picture from a Yahoo! article. I think it is absolutely adorable and a great Mother and Son costume. I would definitely do this if I had a human son!

Enjoy your day!

Operation Cover Up Tattoo, Phase 2: LOVE

   Sooo, I had my 2nd session with Dreamy Don a.k.a. Don Peddicord at Tattoo Dynasty today and it went amazing. My cover up is basically finished but needs maybe one more session, which is fine because then I get to see my dream husband again. Lol, hey, a girl can dream right? Except I'm a woman, not a girl.

   Anyway, I'm in love with my tattoo!!! Now my forearm is beautiful and I have a piece of Dreamy Don on me forever- woah that sounded just a little bit creepy. So just to clear that up, I did not mean that in a creepy way at all.

   I've said it before and I'll say it again, being tattooed by Don is like a dream and I wish I could just sit there and be tattooed by him all day long. Annnnnnd I may or may not have had erotic daydreams about him during this tattoo session. Ugh that man...

   Ok, ok, Heather. Mind out of the gutter and down from the clouds.

   I definitely have ideas of more tattoos I want. I've had theses ideas for years and while most of them I end up eventually deciding not to get, there are some that are definite. I want, I think it is called the song of solomon or something or a piece of it or something? (I don't know, it is framed up in my room and I'm too lazy and comfortable to get up), on the top of my right thigh but I actually think my next one will either be a paw print or a dandelion on my back right shoulder blade with the little seed things blowing off of it.

   Whelp, I'm a little tired, feeling an oncoming migraine and I'm watching last night's episode of Jane the Virgin and then Love & Hip Hop Hollywood. So here are some pictures from today (and of course I will post more pictures when it is healed):


 Two Blue Roses, 1 Teal Rose, Ruby Gems



 GORGEOUS Teal Rose

 Don Peddicord and I
Dreamy Don

   Enjoy the pictures while I go daydream about..

Operation Cover Up Tattoo, Phase 2 Commences Today

   Ok, so I'm gonna keep this one short because I have shit to get done before I leave work early.

   Guess what, Guess what, Guess what?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

   I get to see Dreamy Don a.k.a Don Peddicord today!!! Yes!!! Can not wait for him to tattoo me again and hopefully finish my cover up tattoo. I'm so freaking stoked. I feel like stars are going to shoot out my stomach and lightening bolts out my arms. Wait, does that mean I'm a superhero??? Yea, I didn't think so.

   I'm so excited, I'm about to have an excitement orgasm. Juuuuuust kidding, but forreal.

   I feel like a gazillion butterflies and micro mini elves are tickling me from inside lol. Ugh time needs to fast forward to 11:15/ 11:30 a.m. so that I can leave work and go to Tattoo Dynasty. I'm like so happy and giggly that I can't even think straight and type shit. So I'm going to just publish this post and I'll update you all tomorrow on my cover up tattoo :)

   Have a Great Day Loves!

What I Wore This Weekend

   I wanted to do a separate post for the outfit and make-up I wore to the Demi Lovato concert because if I put this post and the concert post all in one, that just would have been way too entirely long.

   Wow and now I am kind of worn out from the other post even though I posted that one over an hour ago. But I was worn out before I even wrote that post, so...yea.

   By the way, definitely had Fibro brain last night. I laid in bed, eyes closed, tossing and turning for 45 minutes when I finally realized I forgot to take my acai berry cleanse pills and Melatonin. I'm starting to think the Melatonin actually does work since I fell asleep not long after I took it and stayed asleep. Didn't get the best sleep, but I usually don't get great sleep anyway. At least I got better sleep than if I hadn't remembered to take my Melatonin at all.

   And this weekend I finished the dogs' Halloween costumes! My Sister's dogs' costumes and Audrey's costume were bought but I handmade Gemma and Mowgli's costumes, as well as my Mom's dogs' costumes. I chose an easy theme this year- Winnie the Pooh. I ran out of glitter glue when I was almost done Gemma's costume and I doubt I'll go all the way back to JoAnn's to get more. So the poor princess will have to deal. What's even worse is when I started the glitter glue on her costume a few weeks back, I was about to get up to put it somewhere so that the section I did could dry and it fell on her. So she had red sparkly glitter glue all over her left hip, leg, and paw. 

   Poor girl. But at least her new dress came. Gemma was feeling pretty sad when I bought Audrey three dresses soon after I first brought Audrey home, so I bought Gemma a new dress and she loved it! So first, I will show off just a few pictures of the princess in her new dress:




   And now time for pictures of me, my outfit for the concert, and my make-up for the concert. I really wish I could actually do a tutorial of my make-up but this was the first time I did the eye shadow like this and when it comes to doing my eye shadow, I usually just wing it- no pun intended. 







   
Top: H&M; Faux Leather Leggings: Charlotte Russe; Necklace: Forever21; Earrings: Claire's; Boots: Target; Crossbody Bag: Nine West

Demi Lovato

   Oh my, I am so drained. By the way, I don't think I have EVER in my live used "Oh my" in a sentence. Weird. I wanted to try to post about the concert over the weekend but just didn't have the energy and this morning I feel like crap but oh well. This is life.

   So, as you know, I went to the Demi Lovato concert Friday night and it was AMAZING! Everyone was great. MKTO, Bea Miller, and Christina Perri performed as well. I actually didn't know Bea Miller would be performing or even who she was. Apparently she was on The Voice but either way, she did a phenomenal job (as did all the other performers) and you need to check this chick out.

   Demi Lovato is such a strong empowering inspiring woman. She has overcome so much, from battling Bipolar Disorder (which I also battle) to completing rehab for an eating disorder to overcoming self-harm. The song that really touched me and made me have a connection with her and everything was Skyscraper. All of her songs before that were good but they just didn't feel real to me or at least the way she sang them didn't. To me, she seemed like just some Disney star. But when Skyscraper came out, her music, the way she sang, and the way she presented/ carried herself was on a completely different level. This song is so moving and I was ecstatic that she sang it Friday night. Skyscraper literally gives me goosebumps and gets me emotional. Here are lyrics from the chorus:

"You can take everything I have
You can break everything I am
Like I'm made of glass
Like I'm made of paper
Go on and try to tear me down
I will be rising from the ground
Like a skyscraper
Like a skyscraper"

   This woman is a great role model. In addition to singing at her concert, she and her friend, Spencer West, talked about their trip (he has gone on more than one trip) to Kenya and the Mamas of the tribes there. This trip inspired Demi to create the Limited Edition Demi Lovato Rafiki Friend Chain (these are or will be sold at Pac Sun stores). They are $15 and the Mamas actually hand made these bracelets themselves. The proceeds go towards funding the building of a Women's Empowerment Center in Kenya. These centers will offer skill training workshops aligned to local culture and traditions, provide access to computer labs, as well as offer a space to accommodate local artisans (who participate in the Me to We Artisans program). The Me to We Artisans program gives women the autonomy and capacity to create strong economic futures for themselves and their families. If this isn't inspiring, then I don't know what is.

   I am all for giving back and women empowerment. There are many parts of the world where women don't have rights, don't have the same opportunities that men have, are treated less than, etc and have to be dependent on the men. I 100% support helping women everywhere to become independent, both mentally and financially. 

   Demi also talked in general at her concert. She likes to be real with her fans and just sit and talk like you're at lunch talking with your friends. And she tends to ramble on and admits to rambling just like I do. This girl really doesn't care about what people say and think about her and I totally respect that about her. I mean, I'm sure she cares somewhat to a point but doesn't let it affect her anymore. On a fashion type note, Demi shared with us the outfit/ dress that she felt the most confident in (I believe that is somewhat how she worded it but you all know that I can't remember jack shit). This dress I am about to show you is one of the outfits I absolutely loved Demi in. She looked so confident, happy, and sexy. Oh yea, and one of the things she also shared with us was, which relates to this outfit, is body image. She, like many girls and women out there, is learning to accept and love every part of her body. The one thing that Demi really doesn't like about her body but is learning to love is her arms. So at concerts, she makes it a point to show off her arms at some point in time during the concert (and she did). Anyways, here is the dress Demi wore to the VMAs this year:

GORGEOUS!!!

   Ok, I am going to stop rambling on about how amazing this concert was and how awesome everyone there was. Here is the shirt (sorry I didn't take pictures of the back, probably should have done that) I got at the concert and the Rafiki Friend Chain:





   Demi Lovato is one of my role models and one of my woman crushes. Go buy this chain [or don't]- oh and it can be worn as a bracelet, anklet, or necklace or as Demi said, a really long ring. And be sure to check out the other Artists that performed at her concert as well as Spencer West's story.

Tour Around Blogland

   I got nominated by Carli at Puppies and Polka Dots to participate in the Tour Around Blogland. Thank you so much Carli!!! I am so exited to be a part of this, get my blog out there, share some awesome blogs with you, and continue to meet more Bloggers in the process.

   Let's get started, shall we? I am going to answer some questions about my blogging process and nominate 3 other Bloggers to do the same.

   I am nominating Jen from Blue Eyes, Jazz and Attitude, Ali from Thirty and a Half, and finally, Wild Hearts + Green Tea

Jen















Ali




Ready. Set. Go.

1.) What am I working on? I only started blogging less than two months ago. So I am still learning this whole blog thing. I try to blog almost everyday. Practice makes perfect! Plus I have really grown to love blogging! I started this blog because I always wanted to start blogging and put it on my 30 things before 30 list.

2.) How does my blog differ from others in its' genre? I don't know if my blog actually fits into a genre. I couldn't limit myself to just focus on one particular subject. I'm a dog mom who battles disorders like Fibromyalgia and I love fashion and celebrity gossip. But what ties all of these jumbled subjects together is that they are personal and relate to me and who I am. I want to share what I experience, what I love, and my life. So I guess my blog is different because it covers such a wide range of subjects.

3.) Why do I write about what I do? I write about what I do because I want to share my experiences and thoughts with the blogging world. Reading others' experiences have truly helped me and made me feel like I'm not alone in what I battle (Fibromyalgia and more) on a daily basis and that they understand. I hope to provide that to other readers and inspire them. As for the dog part, I'm sometimes considered a crazy dog lady. I LOVE my dogs and writing about them. I also want to be here to give other pet parents advice, reviews on products, and help them anyway that I can. Fashion- love it. I remember in Middle School I wanted to be a Fashion Designer and even started my own books full of sketches. Anyway, even though I don't get dressed up and do my hair and make-up as much as I used to, I still like to share my outfits and sense of style. And although I haven't written much about celebrity gossip, I read articles on celebrities from multiple sites almost everyday- I really find it interesting and enjoyable. So that is something I plan to start including in my posts a little more for those of you who read articles about celebrities too!

4.) How does my writing process work? Hmmm, how does my writing process work? Well, I basically get on the computer, write what is on my mind and/ or share pictures from the day before and what is going on in my life and that's it. I usually write early in the morning and I review my post at least once before publishing it but I don't really review it that much because I don't want to over think it and stress myself out or something. So yea, that's my "process."


   So I really tried to keep the rambling to a minimum in my answers- sorry not sorry! It is just the way my mind is. I start talking about what thing and it leads to something else and then something else and so on. Oh well, I answered the questions, right? I think I should get an "A" for effort haha.

   Anyways before I bore you all, I just wanted to thank Carli again and you all need to check out these blogs!

Meditate in My Direction

   Starting off this post a little sluggish this morning. I don't want to be at work -but gotta make that money. I am feeling nauseous. Not really sure why I'm nauseous a lot of the time (not preggers). It could be my anxiety, migraines, medications, fibro or a combination of those things. So after I take my morning cocktail aka meds (hate having to take medications everyday), I usually pop some 5 cobalt gum in my mouth and it really helps. And after lunch, I chew gum again until I am home. Well, my forgetful ass forgot to put a new pack of gum in my purse. This happens all the time and I hate it. I hate when I forget things, especially since I forget things quite often. And I can't go to the store because I have work to do, I don't feel like moving, and I have Gemma at work with me today (she loves when I bring her, perfect office dog). So yea. But tonight is the Demi Lovato concert, yay!!!

   No random lyric singing in the car but I sure did start singing almost immediately after I woke up. It was lyrics from "You're The One That I Want" again. I did repeat some of the lyrics I sang the other day but I started off singing and mainly sang:

"I got chills
They're multiplying
And I'm losing control
Cause the power you're supplying
It's electrifying!"

   Hey at least I started off singing from the beginning, but then I skipped some lyrics to this part:

"If you're filled
With affection
You're too shy to convey
Meditate in my direction
Feel your way"

   Heather, you're so random. Either my mind is trying to tell me to go watch Grease or that I want a man? Lol who knows. My mind has, well, a mind of its' own.

Up in Here, Up in Here

   Well, my random lyric singing occurred again this morning. A very different song from yesterday. This morning's lyrics were from the song "Party Up" by DMX. And here we go...

"Y'all gon' make me lose my mind up in here, up in here
Y'all gon' make me go all out up in here, up in here
Y'all gon' make me act a fool up in here, up in here
Y'all gon' make me lose my cool up in here, up in here"

   Yes, VERY different from yesterday. The lyrics from today's song came out I believe in either 1999 or 2000, while yesterday's song (I was imagining Olivia Newton-John singing it in Grease) came out in like 1978. 

   So I think from now on, whenever I wake up and start singing random lyrics or all of a sudden sing random lyrics, I'll include that in my post. 

   Anyway, here are some pics taken by the amazing Jen Hammel at Blue Eyes, Jazz and Attitude

 Mowgli is being camera shy

 Mowgli still being camera shy and Gemma wasn't ready for the picture

 Audrey: "Momma, I want a treat"
Mowgli: "Oh yea, is it treat time?!"

 Poor Mowgli, he is not happy about the picture taking today, yet he put himself in these pictures

 The lace trim along the bottom of the sweater

Love the crochet detail and chestnut color!

Sweater: Forever21; Tank Top(plain light grey underneath the sweater that you can't really see): Forever21; Jeans: Forever21; Boots: American Eagle


   And FINALLY my Mother came over to my house and cut/ trimmed and layered my hair! That was much overdue. It isn't really different, just a little shorter and you can see that it's shorter in the back and comes down on a slight angle in the front better now. So I'll probably post pictures of that this weekend. And also be on the look out for a post this weekend or Monday about the Demi Lovato concert (and pictures) that my Sister and I will be going to tomorrow night! So excited!
