Confessions, Lately

Making Melissa

I feel like I haven't done one of these since Kennedy was president and I wasn't even alive then.

J and I started sharing library cards, we even set up a joint email for this. My library doesn't have near the options hers has.

I woke up with killer nausea and if you know me, I'm not a puker so I just grin and bare it. I got to work thinking I had stuff that HAD to be done. Nope, just one thing and I'm sure it could have waited a day. Oh well, I'm here.

I hate calling in sick. They really don't mind because I get my stuff done, but it's kind of a hassle. Can I just be a no show and nobody cares?

I've been drinking lemon in my water ever since Nadine was pushing it last week and I'm loving it.

I'm going to sneak Kylea's Think About it Thursday questions into this post, watch me.

My name is Heather and it's not something that comes with a nick name. I was called "Hey" in high school because it rhymed with J and K. First letters of other girls in our special group. "H" just doesn't have any kind of ring to it unless it's followed by H...EA.

Sometimes I go by Heather Dawn, and I really like how that flows. Good job mom, and all of the other people that used that combo for their girls.

I get up every morning so I can get my day done and sit down with a good book. That and my back hurts if I lay in bed for too long. Trust, I've tried it.

I don't have a favorite vlogger, but I love watching foundation and makeup tutorials on Youtube. Book Youtubers are a little annoying with their voices. Who talks like that!?

Favorite book is and may always be Twilight. I don't care if you make fun of me. I'm probably not interested in even trying your favorite.

I have watched documentaries. They were mostly food or history.

I support a local food bank with $$, and any other things that comes through the church as long as it doesn't involve me dealing with little kids.

Three words I would use to describe myself: Snarky, Smiley, Homebody

I love when people tag you when you win. Especially random people. I'm sure I've won something and not known about it, but the awesome people like Helene and this other random person one time let people know with that little @ sign. It really is the best.

Design work has been killer this week, but that happens with deadlines.

After S moves about 5 hours away I will need to find some new friends in the area. I have a couple from church all older with kids and man friends. No other single people left, girls specifically. Luckily she is just a car ride away unlike all of the other friends that have moved.

I think I'm going to live at home longer so I can pay off my last credit card, have a bigger down payment just in case I find something to buy and still buy all the things I want, lol.

I sound like a bird when I hiccup.

I was obsessed with serial killers when I was in college.

This Friday almost all of the people in my area of the office are off, those are the best Fridays. It's quiet and I can focus to get things done.

I'm chopping off my hair at the end of February. I would have done it sooner, but that's the earliest she could get me in and I trust no one.

I'm obsessed with buying makeup and can't wait to use my Ulta 20% off coupon even though I'll be breaking my Spending Freeze to do it.

I also broke my spending freeze to buy a selfie stick. No shame.

I'm excited to see the Fifty Shades movie with some girlfriends on Valentine's Day.

It's my moms birthday today, so we're celebrating with gifts and food tonight!

I'm almost done with the month of no coffee, no eating out and no spending. So close in fact I'm trying to count back to see when I "technically" started, lol.

I'm not going to make my dietbet because I couldn't stop eating all the food the last few days so you know what that means?! I have three weeks before the next one ends to find my willpower and stop eating all the things.

I don't know why I tried to give up sweets for a month. That was not a good idea.

I cleaned out my Bloglovin before I left work Friday and I'm already at 174. It's giving me anxiety.

I'm trying to decide if I should get Disney or Universal season passes so S and I can meetup in the middle for fun times. I want Disney, but Universal would be cheaper.

This is the longest confessional in the history of HEA confessions.

Do you have anything you need to get off your chest?


  1. yay seflie stick! i hate calling in sick as well. sometimes i text, and i feel like such a shit, but if i can't talk.. eh. i tried to give up sweets / junk this month and i lasted 2 days. not even.

  2. Yay for lemon water!!! I didn't realize I was a pusher, so hurray for me! haha!

    I cant stop eating all the food either. It is just awful! One day I will get my life together. Maybe. And Twilight is my favorite book too. I like to watch make up and hair tutorials and then fail miserably at trying to recreate the look on me. I suck at hair so hard.

  3. I drink lemon water every day myself - so good for you & your liver :)
    Twilight is still one of my fav books too... no shame

  4. Oh man I am having serious self-control issues with food. Isn't January when I'm supposed to be all good and kick butt with my nutrition?? I need to do Nadine's lemon water thing!

  5. Hope you like the selfie stick. Lemon water is really good for you. You are brave for cutting your hair off, I am not brave at all.

  6. The Selfie Stick is worth it. I bought one in September. Which one did you get? I bought from Ulta today. I'm getting my spending in before my February freeze. hahaha

    I've been drinking lemon in my water for the better part of a year. It makes a huge difference.

  7. So you got the selfie stick! I can't wait to hear all about it - a whole post, perhaps?

  8. I never even thought of finding a friend whose library had online options! Genius!

  9. Love this confessional! Girl, no judgement on the selfie stick. I totally want one. haha.

  10. Lemon water is totally the way to go! Love it! I hate calling in sick as well!

  11. I actually had to look up what a Selfie Stick was. I can't believe I didn't get it. Megan FAIL. You're right, this was the longest confession ever, but it was awesome!
    And Nadine almost had me convinced too.. up the part where I have to actually buy lemons and then PUT them in the water. It's sooo hard. lol

  12. These just made me laugh so hard!! No shame in the selfie stick- I got one for my sister in law for Christmas and was making fun of it, then we played with it all day and I ordered one for myself! You need it for those times when it's like "man i wish someone were here to take a picture of us.."!
