Hey y’all, My name is Heather and more than anything, you’ll see my southern roots come alive and you’ll never forget my die-hard love for everything Disney! I’m a 25-year-old Mississippi blogger who recently took up a vegetarian lifestyle back in January of 2014 and I have not regretted that change one bit. I grew up in Mississippi and have a love for this state that runs deep. I graduated from Mississippi State University with a degree in Marketing. After graduation, I could not decide which job I wanted to take, so out of true form for me, I chose something different – The Disney College Program. Since then, I’ve been back a handful of times and pride myself on mastering the art of vacationing at Disney. After Disney, I took a job back at my Alma mater as an AmeriCorps VISTA (think PeaceCorp, but domestic). I only committed to serving a year though, so once that ended, I was on the roller-coaster of unemployment – for 4 solid months. I finally landed a job in January of 2014 in the insurance & investments industry. I absolutely love my job – it was NOT what I had in mind, but that’s typically how life goes! I enjoy living an active lifestyle and I hope to incorporate workouts and vegetarian recipes throughout my blog!
You will see Nick pop onto the blog regularly. He’s an engineer and we are unbelievably different, but thank goodness it works! You’ll see our differences shine through quite often – mainly because I’ll point them out to you and laugh! He loves Disney just as much as I do, so hey, we have that in common! I probably contribute to a lot of the “cheesy” in his life because I’m definitely the one that made a big to-do about us wearing matching Mickey shirts – You’re welcome, Nick!
Nick and I decided to go on this 6 week vegan journey in the Fall of 2012. Since I had been a blogger for a while at that point, I knew exactly how we would document the experiment. We muddled through a few potential blog names until Nick finally came up with the great name, No Bologna, since clearly we were about to cut out meat from our diet (plus the dairy too!) Needless to say, our journey did not last very long and our blog lost it’s purpose. Fast forward to January of 2014 and I officially become a vegetarian! My previous blog wasn’t capturing all my life had become and I lost a lot of interest in it. That’s when I decided to jump back over to No Bologna and make it my full time blog. It perfectly depicts my life in general (not just in a stage) and I consider myself to be pretty blunt and open, so figuratively speaking… No Bologna!
