The fabulous Kelly over at Kelly's Korner is hosting Show Us Your Life~Singles again. As per her post, SUYL has been very successful in setting up 7 couples! I would say that is pretty amazing and awesome. I've debated back and forth about creating a post about myself. I'm pretty much one of the last single people in my group of friends. Ha. Who knows if anything may come out of this but here goes nothing...
Hi, I'm Heather!
I'm 26 and currently live in Oregon. I've also lived in Hawaii for 4 years and Georgia for 7 months. I graduated from the University of Hawaii~Hilo with a Bachelor's in Marine Science and a Bachelor's in Psychology. My passion is working with marine animals or zoo animals. This passion took me to Georgia last summer where I worked with Sea Turtles and loved my job!
While living in Georgia I absoultely fell in love with the South. The food, the charm, and the hospitality. I'm pretty sure I will end up back in the south somewhere at some point.
Friends and Family mean everything to me. Without them, life just wouldn't be life. I can't wait to have a family of my own someday. Right now I'm practicing being the best Aunt I can be to my Best Friends two boys and soon to be daughter!
I absolutely Love to Travel! Every year my family travels down to Cabo for a vacation full of relaxation in the sun. I love travelling back to Hawaii to visit friends that are still living there. I travelled to Scotland, London, and Ireland after graduation but defanitely didn't see all and would love to go back. I even love travelling to Disney World!
I love to try new things and have exciting adventures. I may be shy in the beginning but once you get me opened up there's lots to Love. We will see what may come of this..haha. If you're interested or know someone who is just leave a comment and we will go from there.
Hi Loves, So normally there is a Thursday Link Up on Sarah's fabulous blog...but she had a busy week as we all do at some point. But I thought I'd at least make a post about it anyways as I've been playing music all day long!
I Hope y'all are having a great Thursday! Love, Heather
Do y'all ever feel like you are one age going on an age way older? Well if you haven't you're lucky. I feel like this all the time. Unfortunately at 26 my hair already has grey (eww) and I am growing a forest on my chin and and a mustache (thank goodness for waxing). Tonight I was so depressed as my Dad told me that he noticed it's time to wax again. I was so horrified. Please, please, please tell me this is semi normal to some of y'all and that I'm not alone. I feel like I've been so let down in the cuteness department and adding on all these extras way early doesn't help. Ha. I guess so people are just made to be beautiful and I was not chosen. Well I guess I know what I'll be doing tomorrow....Home Spa Day!!!
So I'm sitting here watching the NBA Finals. Go MAVS!!! So this girly was never huge on sports but I've realized as I've gotten older that I like watching them and by watching them I then know what guys are talking about...ha.
This weekend was pretty uneventful in the fun sense of the word. The most exciting thing I did was go on a coffee date with a cousin on Friday. The rest of the weekend was filled with groceries and errands of the such.
However....this fabulous place....
Is having there Yellow Sale and I got some fabulous deals. Including 12 handsoaps and 3 car scents for $30 with a $10 off 40 purchase. I just love me some coupons and deals! Y'all should hit them up soon if you haven't. I might even go to another one tomorrow to look for more stuff :)
So I've officially jumped on the AngryBirds train and I'm completely addicted. It's to the point where I had to charge my phone twice yesterday cause I just couldn't put it down. I'm hoping this addiction doesn't last too long.
Today was quite a sad day :(. I found three pairs of shoes that I absolutely adored a Nordstrom Rack...
Exhibit A: Jessica Simpson Kingsley (I've been lusting over for months)
Exibit B: Sperry Top-Siders with a touch of Pink
Exhibit C: Super Cute Nike's
However, due to my last post...I decided I could not feasibly purchase these shoes until I finished replacing all that was stolen and paying for my trip :(. So sad to be a responsible adult when it comes to shoes. Well I guess if it's meant to be the shoes will still be there once all is figured out.
That's all for the evening. Tomorrow I start volunteering at the Zoo :)
So i've obviously taken a break from blogging. I lost a lot of interest in writing things for a while. Don't get me wrong I was totally still reading all the fabulous blogs. I've decided it's time to get back to blogging though. The last couple of months haven't been all that exciting until recently.
I actually just got back from a 16 day vacation in Hawaii. You see loves, I went to school in Hawaii for 4 years and I decided it was time to go back and visit a few friends. Well the trip started out fantastic, catching up with a good friend, seeing Maui, and getting some sun. Well then we headed over to Oahu for a couple days to see another friend. Again started out good but then went downhill from there. The first night we were in town we through our friend a surprise Bachelorette party as she's getting married next summer. We did a small one while some of us were together and then next summer she'll have another one.
Now here comes the not so great part. I was told we were going camping on the beach. Mind you, I don't mind camping but I'm the girl who camps in campgrounds with tents and bathrooms. Well this camping was up on the North Shore on the beach, no tents, no bathrooms. I wasn't really dressed for camping either. When we first got there we climbed into the back of the people's truck that we went with and I just thought we were going up the road...Nope we ended up going Mudding. I was in a white shirt and khaki shorts! I don't really like being dirty either. This is how I ended up...
Needless to say I wasn't very thrilled. I just went with it though and tried to be a good sport about it. So after mudding we decided to set up "camp" if you can even call it that. Well I had my new Coach Crossbody Bag with me that had all my stuff in it because we were going to go exploring the next morning. I decided (stupidly) to leave it in the trunk thinking it would be safer than on the beach with a whole bunch of people. Well camping started and the boys tried to build a fire but they sucked and never could get a real fire going. I was not having the best of time so I decided to just lay down. Well it started sprinkling, I said we should go but nobody was agreeing with me so we ended up staying the whole night. The next morning we were up as the sun was rising and decided to get going early. We were loading stuff in the trunk and I noticed my purse was gone, then we realized the window was broken. Someone broke into my friends car and stole my purse and a bag of clothes which had my glasses and contacts in it. Loves, I tell you I literally felt like I was having a heart attack. My chest was tight, I couldn't breathe, and I thought life was over. I luckily had my cell phone and called my parents at home quickly to stop all the cards. The people had used one of the cards at a gas station and then they used my Starbucks card but that was it thankfully. However I had like $150 in there so they got that as well. I was just devistated. Needless to say I will never be leaving a purse anywhere or going camping in Hawaii again. The rest of the week in Oahu kind of sucked because I kept having mental breakdowns over my stupidity of leaving my purse. Later in the week we headed back to Maui and spent the next couple days of my trip just relaxing at the beach and the pool. Here's a couple typical Hawaii pictures that show's the trip wasn't all bad...

Unfortunately my trip to Hawaii wasn't the trip I had planned but it was great to take a break from home.
