I know, I blog like a herd of turtles.

Well between work, and the gym, and trying to have a (semi) social life, things have been pretty hectic. But it's Friday, the weather isn't all the great here in Tuscaloosa, my phone is dead (Finally.. that new phone WON'T go dead) and it's just me and the DVR. I JUST watched this weeks Revenge, and WOO, Now it's on to this weeks Teen Mom and then, drum rolll....Jersey Shore (don't hate!) 

I didn't post anything about last weekend this week, so I'll share now. We went to my dad's for a cousin's 40th birthday fish fry. The weather was pretty stinkin' awful. It literally POURED rain the entire time, and I had to work 7p-11p that night, but it was a good time anyway.

 The Sister and Me, lookin a mess. It was a day for a duck!

 Jenna and I with our grandmother (AKA Nanny) :)

Jenna ridin' her tricycle. She's a SPECIAL girl!!

In other news, I've lost 6 lbs! :) I've been hitting the gym 4 days a week. I'm hoping to step it up to 5 next week. But we'll see, cause I have every intention of spending Tuesday (Singles awareness day) moping ;) lol, kidding, kidding.
I stumbled upon this picture today while loading new ones, it was over the summer and i was about 10 lbs lighter. I'll leave you with that, as a little inspiration for me! 

Hoping everyone has a GREAT weekend! It's supposed to be cold here so STAY WARM! I'm buying my first pistol of my very own this weekend, my dad's going with me. When he's involved, it's hysterical, so look forward to a post about that soon! :)

I was TAGGED in the "Blogger Game" (actually about 2 weeks ago, but I'm behind!) Thanks to Jenna for the tag! 

The Blogger Game
The Rules

1. You must post the rules

2. Post eleven fun facts about yourself on the blog post

3. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post, and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you've tagged.

4. Tag eleven people and link to them on your post

Let me know you've tagged them!

11 Fun Facts:
(1) I may only be 23, but I'm completely convinced I CAN NOT get out of bed in the morning without coffee.

(2) I've recently re-dedicated (again) myself to eating right and going to the gym, It's going great. I'm going 4-5x a week, and it's really improved my energy and mood!

(3) I once lived in the Virgin Islands, on St. Thomas. For a week, it's a good story, kinda.

(4) My sister Jenna, is 2 years older than me, and she's my best friend.

(5) I am a single, independent girl. For some reason, when you say "single" to married people, they gasp. 

(6) I'm secretly in love with DJ Pauly D

(7) My mom passed away when I was 17, forever changing my life. I miss her terribly

(8) My sweet Daddy was the very best Dad/Mom he knew how to be, and he is my #2 best friend (second to Jenna of course! :)

(9) I'm taking applications for a racquetball/spin class partner

(10) I would propose marriage to Alabama football, if I could.

(11) I LOVE to cook. But I've been forced to take a break. The majority of things I cook are "southern", AKA "good" foods. As it turns out, they're not that good for you!

Her questions for me-

My big sister of course!

I won't be tagging anyone else, it looks like almost everyone I follow has already participated, since I'm like 2 weeks behind!! But thanks again Jenna, for the tag!

I hope everyone has a GREAT weekend. It's the middle of my "ON" pattern at work, so I'll be hustling the 3-11 all weekend! Enjoy your Saturday!

Showing you MY life as a SINGLE girl! :)

I'm linking up today with! (I know I'm late, I just got off work!) She has the most precious idea for "Show us your life" Today, it's featuring singles! So excited to be able to link up with something :)

I'm Jessica, I'm 23 years old, and I live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. The home of 14! National Championships! :) Roll Tide Roll. I'm a Registered Nurse, I work 8 days on, followed by 6 days off. Nursing is my first true love, and will remain my only true love, until the Lord sends my true love along! :) 

 Being single has really taught me a lot about myself. It is time I have definitely cherished. You can never let someone else truly love you, until you truly love yourself. Getting to know me, has been a real experience :) Being single has also given me the perfect opportunity to have GREAT, lasting friendships. 

A little more about me: I am very passionate about Alabama football! Roll Tide! I'm really a lover of all things, there are few things that I despise (besides Auburn, of course!) :) My sister and Dad are the 2 biggest influences in my life at this point, I have a great relationship with both of them! I just so happen to be the best of both worlds :) I love to get dressed up and wear high heels, but second to that I love cowboy boots and jeans :) I love the beach, laying out by the pool on long summer days, I like to cook, I sing in the shower and most of my jokes are pretty corny! That's about it I guess! If you have any questions follow me, comment on my blog or send me an email!

Last, but not least, I would like to thank Kelly for the opportunity to do this. What a GREAT idea you have, and I am so glad my sister  Jenna introduced me to your blog, it's precious!
