Hereee Bloggy Bloggy Blogger

Well look who decided to show up again on her blog. This girl. Super chaotic sched lately makes for a bad lifestyle blogger. Bad blogger, Meggie, bad blogger. But, when life knocks you off your blogging post, you get right back up and right to it! So, in order to fully cleanse my mind of guilt from avoiding this space lately, a recap shall commence:



In early July I gathered some ditties from the party shop and sent out a come one, come all birthday dinner invite. See, my momma, my boo boo Izzy, her precious gem baby Emmett, and Hunty's babiest sister Tori all celebrate their being the month of the ruby. What better way to enjoy time together than to head to a fun dinner event. Specifically, Maggiano's Italian Restaurant. Never heard of it? Shame, shame. Interested in pictures of drool inducing, salivating at the thought of it food? Whoops. We were all tooooo busy enjoying endless rounds of Chop Chop salad, Bruscetta, Chicken and Spinach Mancotti WITH ALFREDO SAUCE(heavennn, I'm in heavennn), Chicken Marsala so tender it cut with a fork, and quite literally the very best Creme Brulee I will ever eat in my life. Maggiano's, I think I love you.


We did however capture some shots of the party people since we totally were non-winners at getting grub shots:


Wining, dining, and shining I'd say.


Mommas Knizzy & Shanizzy with Mr. 1 year old Emmett Richard! <3
One of my best good friends Izzle and my Tori. Luckily, there was no need for "You can't sit with us!" It was "you can sit with us and have yourself a plate of deliciousness right now."



My doll baby Tori and her birthday crown the birthday fairy remembered to bring! Such a sport our TT is!



Momma Miaaa, er, Momma Kathyyy, enjoying her espresso at 10pm. That's my momma!



Obviously, our birthday celebration extravaganza was the highlight of my month. But let's see what else has kept me moving, moving, moving:



I've covered so many amazinggg events and news topics this past month. Also, school this month is by far the most challenging class and I have so. much. retained. from. it. Honestly, so thankful and in love with my degree. To check out some of my footwork and so on, check out megkhyde.com



In the field, Soo fun!




Gotta eat and drink to be merry, right?


Fave recipe lately: broccoli with some Italian bread crumbs sprinkled over with olive oil and s&p and asparagus with feta set in oven on broil for 10-15 mins. Taste buds unite!



Current fave indulgence.


Anddd lastly, current fave words of inspiration to see every. day.:



And obvi some accessorizing has kept me away from this space per usual. Um, duh. I could be anywhere, anytime, any situation and let's be honest here...I'm going to be counting bracelets, hanging earrings, and plotting floral head gear.






Happy Weekend!

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

"I strongly believe if you work hard whatever you want, it will come to you. I know that's easier said than done, but keep trying"-Beyonce

I think it's safe to say at this point we all know who Beyonce is and that she does in fact rule the world. Need further prove from anything else you may know as evidence of this? Allow me to share an observation...

Whilst walking for some fresh air and cardio Sunday morning, I found myself jamming to the Beyonce station on Pandora, a first in a long time I will add. Now, with other stations powered by a specific artist, one will find other artists taking up residence on that channel as well. Not in this example. While I admit I did skip a few of Bey's songs, sorry girl, only once did an Alicia Keys song play and once it was Destiny's Child (It was Bugaboo for the record and yes, it was as fabulous as I remember. I also need to remember to dig out my pager from storage). Anyhow, all other songs, whether prompted by skipping or what came next, was Beyonce every.single.time. There we have it; further proof Beyonce is queen of all the lands.

Let me be clear, I am tota…
