For the love of blogging

The blogging world is a world all on it's own. I came across the blogging world a couple years ago. I didn't start writing my blog until almost a year ago (February 3rd = aka the day before my birthday). Just because I didn't start my blog until then didn't mean I was totally unaware of it. I loved reading blogs and even had them saved in my favorites to read the updates each day. Last year I decided it was time to start writing my own. Well my posts where kinda boring and few and far between but I was still part of the fabulous blogging world. Blogging has introduced me to some amazing ladies, who I am sure we could totally be friends in real life. There are some amazing women who write great blogs chronicalling our lives day to day. Bloggers really do connect and it's such an amazing experience to be part of an amazing community. With out the help of bloggers and twitter, I would be really lost. I've asked for help and just seeked friendship in these areas and have been accepted. It was a really hard year adjusting to moving home. My home friends are all married w/ kids or getting there. It's hard for me to relate to them as I'm still trying to find a career. And a man at some point :). Having the blogging community/twitter community, I've made "friends" with girls who are similar in stages of life to me and it's great to connect with them. It's even great to connect on things such as shopping, makeup, tv shows, etc. I just absolutely love it. I just want to say thank you to the blogging community and twitter community for becoming "friends" and continuing this life journey together. I hope one day maybe I will meet up with some of these friends and become in real life friends. I think we would just bond quickly. I just love all y'all for such an amazing experience. Let's keep it going!

In honor of Friends, my link up for The Vintage Apple's Oh How Pinteresting Wednesday is all about friendship.

BCS National Champions

Roll Tide!!!

After last nights shut out game, we deserve that National Championship. I'm so excited that we won. I was sad to see players hurt but our boys rallied together last night to earn that National title. So proud! What a great thing to bring back to Tuscaloosa after such a devastating year. I believe this Championship was for you. Great job Tide!
I can't wait until next season already!

Happy New Year! On this fabulous start to 2012, I've received my very first Blog Award. I've received the Blog on Fire Award from Angela over at Belles & Bows! Angela makes great posts and she's quite the twitter girl too :) Go check out her fabulous blog and I am positive you won't be dissapointed.

As part of this award I am to share five things about myself, so here we go:
1: I was born and raised in Oregon but have lived in Hawaii and Georgia. I plan on hopefully moving back to Georgia or somewhere in the South in the near future as I fell in love with the southern hospitality and way of life while living in Georgia.

2. I started reading blogs several years ago and then decided to start my own. Last year it was touch and go with my blog but this year I've committed to spending some more time in blog land because there are some fabulous ladies out there and I love feeling part of a great community.

3. I have two degrees, of which I'm using neither. Ha, talk about a waste of college currently. Due to the economy its been a struggle. But 2012 is my year, I can just feel it :)

4. I am lactose intolerant but love Dairy. If I see Ice Cream or Frozen yogurt, you can bet I will most likely be having some. I just love it!

5. I love fashion and makeup, however I have a hard time with it on myself but have committed to making this the year of me and will be shopping a little more to improve on my skills and try out some of those things I see all over. Get ready for the 2012 edition of Heather!

Well wasn't that exciting. I hope you enjoyed the fun little random facts about me. Part of the award is to get to pass it onto 5 other bloggers. I love this. The blogging community is so fabulous. So ladies I pass this award along to you:

Reasonably Swanky
Savanah Smiles
Perfectly Imperfect

Life In It's Ordinary Form
