break and vacation

Hello lovelies...
So I've decided to take a little break from the photo challenge and here's why...
I will be in Cabo for a week and then I'll be here...
St. Pete's Beach, Fl.
We go to Cabo every year but I've never been to St. Pete's Beach so if you know anything I should do while there please let me know...

Vineyard Vines

Hello Lovelies,
So today while I was working out at the gym the tv's were showing an episode of How I Made My Millions and guess who it was featuring....the boys from Vineyard Vines!!!
Here's the link to watch it:
I had never even heard of Vineyard Vines before coming across it in the blogging world. Now I'm officially in love and unfortunately we don't have any here on the West Coast. I'll just have to catalog/online order and look for it on my trips back East.
I hope everyone is having a great Presidents Day

Day 3 & 4

Day 3: A picture of the cast from your favorite show

My favorite show for a long time has been One Tree Hill (OTH). I've watched it since the first episode and have all the seasons on DVD. If this show were to end I would be lost without it. At first I wasn't too excited that they were taking Lucas and Peyton off but I love the new characters and it's still just as good :)

So because I was busy all day yesterday I'm updating for today too...

Day 4: a picture of your night

It's not really the night quite yet but I already know what I'll be doing...heading to the gym to work out. This week I've gotta get in all my workouts before going on vacation for 2 weeks.

I hope everyone is enjoying their 3 day weekend (if you have one)

Day 2: Bestie & a new quote to live by

Day 2: A picture of you and the person you've been closest with the longest

This is my bestie, Terran (left)! We've been friends since preschool. And the funny thing is, is that our past goes back even further as her mom and my dad grew up living next door to each other. Small world. I love her to death and wouldn't know what to do without her. She has two amazing boys that are my little nephews and I love them to death too. I don't know where life would be without having her around. Here's too many more years to come and life adventures to experience together :)

Quote Time:

I recently just came across this quote and I'm going to make it my current quote to live by because it's so great and so true. "Twenty years from now will you be more dissapointed by the things that you didn't do than by the things you did do?" I need to start living and really experiencing things so that I can have those memories to pass down.

Happy Friday Lovelies,

Day 1: a picture of yourself

1. I'm an only child. It never used to bother me because I have so many cousins and lots of friends in the neighborhood growing up. However as I get older I really wish that I had siblings.
2. I am totally addicted to Diet Coke. Seriously my day can't function without it. I wake up and that's the first thing I do is grab a Diet Coke. I would love to quit drinking it but I just can't bring myself to do it.
3. I really really really want twins, preferably boy/girl twins, when I get to that stage.
4. I am afraid that I will not be able to have children. Always been a feeling inside me that I've never been able to shake. So I might have to take fertility meds and quite possibly could end up with my dream of twins.
5. If I could go back and redo college, I would hands down go a completely different path than I did.
6. I want to have a relationship with God, read the bible, and go to church but for some reason I just don't know where to start.
7. I wish that I was more of a girly girl. Growing up I never really cared what I looked like and still don't put the effort into myself. I wish someone would just come in and teach me how to be more girly.
8. I want so badly to find an awesome handsome guy to start dating and fall in love. It's been a long time since I've had a relationship and I'm ready for one again.
9. I love kisses on the forehead. I think they are so sweet and so romantic.
10. I'm obsessed with shoes. I seriously have over 100 pairs. And still buying.
I hope you enjoyed some facts :)

Holy Huge

So recently I ordered that Lands End Canvas Tote with the Ziptop. I decided to order the Large Size and have my name Monogrammed on it. The whole purpose was to use it for my upcoming trip to Cabo and then to Florida.

Well I just received it in the mail this week and it's HUGE!!!!! I mean HUGE!!! I'm not the smallest of people but this tote is literally half my size. I do like it and it will defanitely be able to fit a lot for the beach, lol. So I highly recommend ordering the medium for anyone looking to get this tote. Ha.

Today I'm 26

Hello lovely's

Today I've officially joined the down slope of the 20's and I've turned 26. I'm freaking out a little bit as I feel like there is no way I can be this old already. Ha. Well it's happened. I can't wait for dinner this evening with my family and to open my fabulous gifts :) I've already opened one that arrived via UPS today and it's these....

Shari's Berries!!!! Yum Yum and YUM!!!! My mom started getting them for me a couple years back and it's one of my favs.

Until tomorrow....

Preppy Lane Giveaway

Hi everyone...
I just wanted to let you know about a great blog
She's giving away a great Kate Spade wallet :)
Head on over and Check it out


Hi Everyone! Welcome to my blog. I'm Heather. I will be 26 tomorrow...woohoo (but scary at the same time). I'm new to the whole writing a blog thing. I've been following blogs for a long time and it's such a great community that I thought I would join.
A little catch up on me...
I graduated from the University of Hawaii-Hilo in 2009 with a Bachelor's in Marine Science & Psychology. I've had a few adventures in jobs since including working in Georgia with SeaTurtles. I'm currently back home in Oregon looking for work. It's a hard economy out there and haven't had the best luck. I'm trying to keep my head high and just know that there's a plan out there for me.
On another note...
I love all things preppy, coastal, and southern. I'm obviously not southern but fell in love with it while living in Georgia. I love exploring new things and meeting new people. I can't wait to get more into this blogging world.
That's all for now...
