WTF? Where has 2014 gone?

WTF Heather? What happened to the WTF Wednesdays? SO my WTF Wednesdays have not been up to par but that's just because of all of the holiday crap. Everything should be- should be- back to normal next week.

   Woah, where has the time gone? I can't believe 2014 is almost over. I feel like this year has gone by so fast! Well, it only makes sense to look back and reflect on 2014.

1. I bought my house
   This was huge for me. I finally have a house- my house! No more apartments- *knock on wood* I am just so happy and grateful for this house and I know my babies are as well.

2. Audrey came into our lives
   Audrey, my English Bulldog puppy, was welcomed into our lives (mine and my 2 other furr babies) in August 2014.

3. Being at my job for two years
   February 2014 marked my two year anniversary of me being at my job and then in just a few short months- like just under 2 months- I'll have been here for three!

4. My Sister moved in with me
   When I bought my house and moved in,…

New Year's Resolution(s)

Ahhh it's that time again- time to make your New Year's resolution or resolutions. I usually don't do this but ya know what? This year I am going to. I usually make goals as they come to me throughout the year but I'm going to start this year off right and I'm going to make 3 New Year's resolutions.

1. Don't buy any shoes this whole year unless...
   Ok, I was originally going to say don't buy any shoes at all but shit happens and sometimes you actually need to buy new shoes. I'm not a shoeaholic or anything but I don't wear a lot of the shoes I have. Like some of my heels I haven't even ever worn. I'm really going to try not to buy any shoes though and even though I'm not a shoe obsessed person, this resolution is going to save me money. So I am not going to buy any shoes unless:  
 -They are like on sale for under $10 and absolutely love them and would wear them all of the time or something.
 -They are shoes that are needed that…

Holiday Recap Briefing- does that even make sense?

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great Christmas!!! I actually had a nice Christmas this year. We went to my step sister's house and I got to meet some of her fiance's family and I got to see my adorable handsome 7 month old twin nephews- LOVE them!

   It's pretty much tradition for me and my sister to go shopping the day after Christmas- sooo we did lol. But I was good with my money and didn't spend much at all. I also ordered some things online so I might just wait til everything is here to take pictures of what I bought.

   Oh yea, and my sister and I never finished decorating and didn't even decorate the sugar cookies I made. Oh well- there's always next year! So I'll just show you the little bit that we did get done.

WTF Wednesday and Christmas Eve

Image
Oh. My. God. It is Christmas Eve!!!

   But first... ok so on my way home from work on Monday, my car kept feeling like it was being hit by strong winds and it was hard to steer straight (no strong winds that day). When I got somewhat closer to home (I have a long commute), a light/ alert popped up saying "Steering Fault Service Now." I Googled on my phone to see what it meant. Other people with Ford Focus and people with Ford Fusions have experienced this and one said that when she turned her car off and then restarted it, the alert said loss of steering and you couldn't turn the steering wheel. Well good thing I waited until I got home to try that because mine did the same thing. I read online that Ford has received 450 complaints of this exact problem in certain year models of Fusions and Focuses. I have a 2012 Ford Focus SE and that model was included. I also read a lawsuit was filed against Ford in July because they have not fixed this problem. Anyway, a tow truck…

New Year's Eve Outfit- Opinions Wanted and Help Needed Please

Image
Christmas Eve and Christmas is almost here!!! And next comes New Year's Eve and New Year's Day! I seriously cannot remember the last time I went out- like out out- for New Year's Eve. Like seriously. Well this year is different because Steve asked me to come see a band with him and his friends in Philly on New Year's Eve! I said yes of course and was super excited. The next thought that came to mind? I need an outfit!

   Being the online shopper that I am, I bought my outfit online- obviously. Everything but the shoes are from Forever21. I plan on going to Forever21 like actually in the store this weekend to look at the jewelry. I just couldn't make a commitment to buying the jewelry online because I was so indecisive about what jewelry I wanted to pair with this outfit and what would look good and I wanted to hurry up and order the outfit so that it arrives at my house before New Year's Eve. I might end up getting jewelry at Target or somewhere else in the …

My Weekend

Image
Oh Lord, it's Monday again. But cheer up because this is a 2 1/2 day work week!- for me at least.

   Let's recap what all happened this weekend. Friday night I met Steve at the tattoo shop, 717 Tattoo in Mechanicsburg, and then we went to see a band at HMAC. They were really good. Oh yea, before that, we had sushi at a place neither of us had been to before and we maybe ate like 1/4 of the sushi we ordered because we started feeling sick. So that was unfortunate but didn't ruin our night. After the band played, we just hang out and talked in his car. Then we went to Walmart to get his kitty some food. When we were going to the checkout line, he realized he never closed his tab out at the bar and left his card there. We raced over there and I kept calling trying to get a hold of the place because they closed at 2 and we were gonna be there after 2 a.m. Luckily we got there just in time right before the owner had left and Steve got his card. Phew!

   So I ended up getting…

Pottery

Finally getting around to showing you all the pottery piece I painted almost 2 weeks ago. I'd show you the one(s) for my Mom but I can't spoil her Christmas present(s) by showing them off before she opens them.

   So yup, I painted a hippo for myself. Hippos are my favorite animal besides dogs. They are so cute and if you have ever seen a baby hippo- oh my God they are so freakin' adorable!!! I hope one day I can see a baby hippo in person.

   Ok, random, but since we're talking about hippos, I have to throw this in here (to all of you who have ever seen the movie Big Daddy); "Hip, Hip Hop, Hip Hop anonymous?" HAHAHAHA LOVE it!

   Back to my hippo. Here he is. And his name is Henry (real original right? lol *sarcasm*). Henry did not have an eye patch before I picked him out and decided to paint him. I hate painting eyes. I am quite artistic and can draw eyes great but painting them? I try to avoid it. So I painted one of his eyes- I mean that wasn't so…

Health Update

Ok, so I wanted to update you all on my newest health discovery adventure? Um yea "newest health discovery adventure" doesn't exactly describe this well and kind of makes it sound fun- which it is NOT!

   I've been seeking answers about my health (not mental health related) since about 2012 when everything had just continued to get worse and worse and worse, that I finally decided to start seeing Doctors in order to find out what is wrong with me. I first visited an Endocrinologist in 2012 who was like 80, had to pee after seeing every single patient, was late, couldn't remember what he was writing down, like beyond ready to retire OLD. He didn't really give me answers. When he wasn't giving me answers after he read my blood test results I was like, well do I at least have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or something? And he said yes. He also told me to take iron supplements (which I eventually stopped taking because they literally made no difference) and mag…
