My daughter was named after a video game character. Yup, that’s right. Her name is Natalya and that was the name of the bad ass chick in James Bond Goldeneye for Nintendo 64. True story. It was my favorite game at the time and loved the name Natalya.

♥ Not Feeling Well ♥

So I stayed home from work today because I had been having harsh chest pains this past weekend and then could not sleep all night because of it. The this morning was dead tired and still haven't been able to fall asleep due to the pains. I hate this. I haven't had these pains for almost a year and now they started back up Saturday morning. Great. The pain comes when I exhale or if I hold my breathe, every time I feel my heart beat, the pain thumps with it. If I stretch or lift my right arm, its there too.
Basically just doing anything, the pain is constant and annoying. I hate this. So I have been just sitting on the couch all day watching tv and trying not to move a whole lot.

So anyway, here is a picture of me rocking out the pajamas today. I have the awesome grey Kitty pants on. I know, these are my fav and I love wearing these. I wish I could wear them all day everyday. Be jealous cause you know they are sexy.


So excuse the "Plain Jane" hair and makeup. There is no makeup on me nor it there even any conditioner in my hair. Just frizz from the shampoo. Yea, I think this will be the only time I post something like this of me with no makeup on. Or at least a really good edit where I still look all awesome.

The reason for the picture is because some of you had read about a rant I did how I have been told I am too fat to have any more children. And yes, I do not like showing my entire body in my photos. I used to be a 10! I had the most perfect and amazing body. But I have been told by two doctors that I am too overweight to conceive any more children.

So here is my body and just what the doctors are talking about. I know I am overweight for my height. I'm 5'7" and should be 30 pounds lighter to be considered "healthy". But my family doctor and my "womens parts" doctor both told me that the reason I am not pregnant is because I am too overweight. I was told to lose 30 pounds and then I should have no problem becoming preggo again.

I think this is not really the problem honestly. I know so many other people that are pregnant or have been pregnant and numerous amounts of times as well that are wayyyyy bigger then I am. Even by 100 pounds bigger and still popped out three or four kids. But when I told the doctor that, he said they were maybe the exception to the rule because if we have been trying to have another baby for the time we have been, then it has to be because I am too fat. Otherwise, it wouldn't' take that long.

So it hurt my feelings and I hat the way I look. I always feel so fat. Especially when I think about how I looked before I was pregnant with my daughter. But having not one, but two doctors tell me I am fat, really hurts. I really want more children and ok, maybe losing some weight would help, but I don't see how that could be the only reason.

So what do you think? Agree with the doctors who are supposed to be the smart ones and know everything? The one told me I was teetering on obese and that's why I am having problems. And yes, they used that word "obese". I really think I would slip into a huge state of depression if I ever became that way. And according to them, I am not far from it at all. About 10 more pounds and that's what they would consider me as.

Its just really depressing to think about. And I get really jealous and happy but sad when someone else I know is pregnant. I tend to not write a whole lot of personal posts, but I was in the mood for this one.

♥ You Are Not A Photographer ♥

Have you seen this site before? My friend Sarah posted this on Facebook because she has her own photography thing going on {as do many people} and this is just hilarious. I ran through about 16 pages of it. But a lot of it is so true.

Myself being someone who has a passion for photography and taking photos {although I would never consider what i am doing anything in a professional matter I just enjoy it} but you know, I didn't realize just how bad people snap pictures or edit them out there.

To me, it seems really easy to get a good angle and turn out a kick ass edit from it. Even just simple things not trying to make it anything really. But man oh man, some of you out there who have your own photography thing going on or really enjoy picture taking, I think you would get a laugh out of this site.

Its called: YOU ARE NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER

Check it out. Its pretty hilarious. But their tag line is so very true! JUST BECAUSE YOU OWN A CAMERA, YOU ARE NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER. YOU CANNOT BUY TALENT


Even if you are not into photography, the site still makes for some good amusement and some fun laughs to share!

★Shit I Hate Sunday★





Click the button and link up. She's a rad mama and she may or may not bite. Watch it!

Now, onto my edition for this week's SIHS

Shit I Hate.....that autocorrect always wants to play nice with the cuss words. I want it to say Shit or Hell and it just wants to continuously type Shut or He'll for me. Makes no sense and irrates the crap out of me.

Shit I Hate.....that people constantly say to me "Ooohhhh so you're German then huh?" I'm like, "Uh no...." and they reply "Well you must be if you lived in Germany"...seriously, you don't have to be something just to have lived there. So if I say I live in China, that does not make me Chinese. Stupid people. It really bothers me and has for such a very ling time.

Shit I Hate.....that the dumb ass dude I have to sit next to at work constantly goes on and on about how HE is pregnant and he has started to feel the baby kick and he has doctor appointments. If you say, "Don't you mean your wife?" He looks at you and then says, "No I am". He just gets on my fucking nerves so much. I really really need to write a post about all the retarded shit this dude says to me all day long.

Shit I Hate.....when I am not in the mood to clean and really know I need to get my ass in gear. And yes, I do have times where I am in the mood to clean and want to clean. Most of those are when I'm really pissed off. Mostly at the husband.

Shit I Hate.....gas prices. I remember when I first started driving, gas was about 97 cents a gallon. Now, you have to pimp yourself out just to buy some gas.

Shit I Hate.....that my Sims has so many baby daddies and can't figure out why no one wants her whore ass. Thats what she gets. So I deleted all the doors in her house, put plants, and bookshelves everywhere and lit that bitch on fire and watched her burn! Yes, I love my Sims!!!! She was just getting on my nerves. I'm like Henry the VIII

Shit I Hate.....when I'm watching Netflix and then it pops up saying there is an issue with my account. I go and see I'm too broke for them to take their money. Screw that! I get around it though and now have my Netflix back up and working...HA

Shit I Hate.....when people bring their sick kids somewhere. Stop, turn around and go back home. This is mostly at school or at the gym. There was some really sick little girl at the gym today in the kiddie gym. I told my daughter to not go near her, don't put anything in your mouth and do not touch anything she has touched. I was so glad when I saw her mom took her and left. Just cause she wants to work out, uh...sometimes your sick child is just a little bit more important. Keep both of your asses at home.

So this is what is rockin’ on my phone! Of course, can’t live without the Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, or my alarm clock app. Then only all the Angry Birds games must be on there. I love the mirror app. A few fun photography apps. A few games my daughter put on there to play {that I enjoy as well}…..I got this idea from:

mrs stephanie t

Of course, she went into much more detail about her apps & stuff but for right now, this was a start for me. I am always looking for new & fun apps people recommend. So if you have any other ones {I’m pretty much a free app kinda gal} let me know! Sharing is caring. So many come out that I miss & I love hearing about new ones to download that people luv.

♥ Saturday's The Word ♥

So Saturday is a popular day for "word" posts. So I'm putting both of them together. One hop has six words, the other has three... let's see what things I can think of today.....



EVERYONE IS KNOCKING AT THE DOOR

Yea, so we never get anyone knocking at our door except like the FEDEX guy or the maintenance people {we live in an apartment complex}. We aren't neighbor friendly or anything like that or just have friends that swing by. But all early afternoon today, we had people coming to the door. None other then to spread the word of their religion...lol..yea, they can keep it. If hubby would have answered the door, I really would have said some things that they would probably be throwing holy water all over me for. But we don't answer our door to strangers.
But yea, so two people came knocking on our door and then another person about an hour later. I'm like...geeezzzz. Both me and the hubby said "is today the door knocking day or something?"




CLEANING ON HOLD

Thats right. I have decided to enjoy my Saturday by not cleaning. At least not for the majority of the day. I use my entire weekend most of the time to clean and I want to enjoy my Saturday today and just play on blogger, play my little facebook games, and watch tv.

My husband fell asleep watching football {so I don't have to worry about him, he's fine in the room} and my little girl is playing her games on her computer {yes, she is 4 and plays facebook games as well...what am I gonna do with her} and she's also harassing the cat by trying to play "Beauty Shop" with her.

So since its raining and hot as crap outside, I would rather be lazy right now {and have been all day so far} relaxing and not thinking about work since I can right now.
xoxo Rebecca

♥ I'm Awesome ♥

So being the cool dork I am, I thought I would show off a photo I took a few days ago of myself {of course} haha. And I liked the way my hair looked that day too. I was feeling pretty :0)

Because I'm awesome! And I am pretty awesome

Also, the other day, a co-worker of mine wanted to drop by McDonalds and I just went along for the ride. She drove up to the window and Ronald himself scared the crap out of us when we drove up to get her food, he was there. So I asked him if he could say hi to my daughter while I record it and he signed an autograph for her as well. It was so cheesy yet so funny. I wish I could have been the driver that day. That would have been hilarious. But we couldn't stop talking about it the rest of the day.

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cp8T-n84iTs?fs=1&w=425&h=344]

So when I got home from work, I showed my Natalya the video and she was so excited. She was waving to him and had a big smile on her face. She looked a bit nervous as well...haha...but she loves watching that over and over again.

Also, since I am linking up with Fab Friday Newz {even though its Saturday...shhhhh!} some good news is that Hurricane Irene didn't hit land in Florida so we didn't have any damage around my house or get massively flooded or power lines and trees down. Although, I was terribly sad to see my job didn't get blown away into the ocean..lol That would have been an even better day. Ok, I really do like my job. I was just hoping for Friday off.

The Neuff's Fab Friday Newz

So hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. I know it just began but enjoy it!

♥ Before & After ♥ {palm trees}

 



I thought participating in these {before & after} photo hops would be fun. I snapped this shot on my phone while waiting at a stop light on my way home. As you can see, I live all in palm tree central.

SOOC:                                                                                 Edit:

Of course, it was just a simple iPhone photo and a simple edit. But hey, I am amused easily and these little photo editing hops amuse me a lot. BTW, these were the last of the clouds from Hurricane Irene passing through. She has moved on and up the east coast now, leaving Florida behind her.

♥ A Hurricane's A Brewin' ♥

Well, we are officially in the outer bands and the first of Hurricane Irene. Oh, the joys of living near the Atlantic. We always have storms firing up. This one was projected to hit us, then veered away, and now back on course to slide right by us, causing lots of wind and rain. So we won't be getting attacked by the eye, but will be feeling the wrath none the less.

I live a little more in the Central Florida area, so we will probably just get the wind and rain. But I work out by the shoreline and so I'm hoping *fingers crossed* no work tomorrow. They already have all the warnings up and so it will be really unsafe and just hard and frustrating to drive in that crap. Yes, I have done it in the past and it wasn't fun. So I'm all prepared to call in, in the morning and I'm hoping I get to.

I have mapped out my home and then my job location. I work a lot closer to the ocean then where I live. So driving up there will have to take a lot tomorrow if it doesn’t look good outside.


Print

Irene, Bring It On Bitch! I know we won't be getting hardly anything compared to what the rest of the east coast will be getting, but we are getting the first of it.....so its still sucky no matter what. On the news, they are talking about be prepared tomorrow for power outages and floods. So we have been warned.

So we just have to keep a watch out this evening to see where this little lady is going and what she is going to bring! I still say Bring It!

Cher99

2. Who was your celebrity crush{es} when you were younger?
When I was little, I had a huge crush on Kevin Costner…lol…it was a bad one too. It all started with Robin Hood and spread through Field of Dreams, Dances With Wolves, etc…I loved him.

kevin-costner1

eric_bana-1llcool_j_lgJonathan Rhys Meyers Tudors 2nd season promo pictur

4. What is one of the strangest/unique things about you?
Mine is that I have to eat everything with a knife and fork. I cannot touch food with my hands. It actually freaks me out. There is something about the way it feels. If you ever are around me while I eat, you will notice that I hold a napkin in one hand at all times and after every bite, I must wipe my mouth. But I grew up having to eat everything with a knife and fork. From french fries to pizza. So I can’t eat any other way now. I freak out if I can’t use both when eating.

5. What are three fears you have?
Driving in the middle lane {yep, pretty much have a panic attack if I have to}, being lied to/cheated on by the person you love the most, and losing my child. .

6. What is one question that you have been asked so much that if you are asked one more time, you will punch someone?
I used to get asked all the time {non-stop} “how does your parents feel about you dating a black guy?” I hate that so much. I’m glad I don’t get asked that anymore, but from the time I was 19 til I got married, I was asked that almost everyday by so many people. Number one, its none of their business and number two, who cares. Its my life and I don’t see skin color, I see a person. I hate those closed minded people and I always answered back that my parents really can’t have a say so, but they do not care as long as I am happy. They only care about that. It just really bugs me looking back how often I had to answer that and I shouldn’t have because it shouldn't matter.

7. What nationality/nationalities are you?
I am Dutch, Russian, Polish, and Native American

8. What is one physical feature you like about yourself?

♥ Mark Your World ♥

I stumbled upon this site {MAP MAKER}that gives you the chance to input all the places around the world you have visited or lived to share with everyone. I think its pretty neat. And you can customize your maps as well. Very spiffy. Try it out for yourself! I found it a bit entertaining tonight to play around with. Here are my examples of the US & European places I have visited or lived in.

States I Have Visited
Make yours @ BigHugeLabs.com
Alaska, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Louisiana, Missouri, South Dakota, & Wisconsin

Make yours @ BigHugeLabs.com
Countries I Have Visited
Make yours @ BigHugeLabs.com
Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Netherlands, & Switzerland


It was something fun to play around with this evening. Wish I could have mine filled up a bit more, but I still have many years ahead of me to do so. Share yours!

♥ Shit I Hate Sunday ♥

Gosh, is it seriously Sunday again already? Well, pretty much almost over being 10pm now. Were did the weekend go? It fly out the window without a thought pretty much. So you know what that means? Another freakin' long ass work week starting up again tomorrow. Damn! Why can't the weekends be 5 days and weekdays be 2? That would be pretty awesome. Who's with me?

Need to vent or just bitch about random stuff? So do I. That's why I love Rockin' Mama's Shit I Hate Sunday Link Up. So get it off your chest and link up with her. You know you need/want to.

Let's get to it!





Shit I Hate.....when I start thinking about past events that hurt me so bad, I get so freakin emotional and shitty.

Shit I Hate.....when people talk down to you and they either get that really rude attitude or the whole "I'm better then you" thing going on. Seriously? You're the fool, not me.

Shit I Hate.....when you are looking forward to something and then plans change or people cancel. Then why the hell did you bring it up if you just turn right around to disappoint me?

Shit I Hate.....that I feel I'm making myself go insane with stress.

Shit I Hate.....that Taco Bell still wouldn't let me purchase items. In case you missed it, its the post right after this one. Its a funny read.

Shit I Hate.....the businesses are so focused on money, they seem to not care about safety of others.

Shit I Hate.....pinched nerves. At least the one in my neck has gotten a bit better since Friday but still hurts.

Shit I Hate.....trying to keep happy when I'm sad and upset. Just let me have my fit and whine and cry.

Shit I Hate.....I don't feel like I have anyone emotionally there to talk to. That can suck. Especially when I'm so damn emotional and just want someone to tell me everything is ok. The hubby doesn't understand that. He's a poopy-head sometimes. Boo!

Shit I Hate.....when you are looking forward to watching something and you turn it on, and some stupid show or broadcast replaced it. Damn you.

Shit I Hate.....when the Simpsons are on and all you want to do is watch it, but the tv station messed up and is only playing it in Spanish. Ugh, I wish there were subtitles. I can only understand German. Boo! And to add, damn you!

Shit I Hate.....that the two doctors I have been to have both said I am too overweight to get pregnant. That hurts and yes, I may not be as skinny as I was, but damn, I know a lot more bigger girls then I am that are all pregnant. Lay off of me. I miss my perfect 10 body from college. Boo to those doctors. Thats why I hate you!

Shit I Hate.....that I feel like I can't do anything fun. Everything fun, I'm too broke for. Or it's going on while I have to be at work.

Shit I Hate.....that my vacation is still two months away. Please get here sooner. I need it!

Shit I Hate.....that the handicap lady refuses to park in the handicap spot here yet, puts nasty notes on your car if you do. WTH? You never use the spot and its the only one left. Leave me alone fat bitch.

Shit I Hate..... favoritism in the work place. Need i say more on this subject? I don't think so.

Ok, well, I think that about sums up this edition of Shit I Hate Sundays. What's bothering you? Share it!
xoxo Rebecca

♥ Taco Bell No Likey Me ♥

So the hubby sent me out to run and get Taco Bell for dinner tonight because no one wanted to cook. Well, he didn't want to cook. I don't cook. Refuse to and won't. Even with a gun to my head, you couldn't get me to do that crap. So I ran out real quick to grab some tacos and what-not.


I get to the drive-thru and start my order. The guy stops me halfway through and tells me that I will not be able to order some of my order because I must have a minimum number of people in the car with me in order to. I thought the guy was kidding and said "Seriously?"
He said yes, many item on their $0.99 menu hold a strict policy that require the sale of them to have a minimum number of people int he car in order to purchase them. I then asked "Well, I'm just one person in the car but buying for other people and not just myself."
He told me that it was a strict policy and could not sell me the items unless more people were in my car. I told him alright and just continued the rest of my order and then called my hubby to inform him that Taco Bell could not sell me what he wanted from there.
So I took my tacos and came home. It was a very odd adventure. I had no idea Taco Hell was so strict. I think the guy was either:

1. New

or

2. A Douchebag

So needless to say, it was odd and strange. That has never happened to me before and so I was curious to look it up to see if there is any fine print anywhere stating this. All I can say is, gotta love the freakin' backwards state of Florida!

♥ Who’s Your Browser? ♥

So everyone always seems to like to ask what do your browse the web with? Which browser is your preference?

Well, for me, I use Google Chrome at home. Here’s a lovely screen shot of my web surfing screen:

googlechrome

And at work, we use Firefox.

firefox-screenshot

But what do you use? I don’t see a right or wrong to whatever anyone chooses. I just love the way Google Chrome looks and it seems to run pretty good on my computer.
