Megan's Pinspiration of the week

I love to binge pin. I find amazingness for every thing or thought I could ever have and it inspires me beyond belief.


This being from one of my top 10 favorite movies of all time, made it all the more amazing to find. I work as an Admissions Counselor by day and I tell my students this all the time in regards to pursuing college. It's true with everything though.

This gives me a feeling of empowerment which I love.

This sounds like a dream and a half. While I love the fact that I can make adult decisions, like having dessert first, the rest is eh. I'll be in my fort office if you need me.

Everything about this space is phenom. I want it all, all over my house now. It's vintage, it's quirky, it's my epitome of fabulous.

And I'll take one of these too...

TGIF y'all! For realz. It has been an exhaustively good week. Work, work, working a lot and live, live, living as much in between. Let's do some favorites for a pre-weekend win and the fact that I made it here 3 times this week. Or was it last? Dammit, I knew I wasn't doing as good as I thought around these parts!


Favorite fashion look: Love the new Juicy line for Kohl's. It is fab-fab-friendly!


Favorite accessories moment:


Favorite decor spotlight: Munterhegans are celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas strong early on.


Favorite recent life event: going to see my kid sister march with her award winning high school band. Even if I did jump out of the car as the band was marching across the street to the football stadium with arms flailing. And I may or may not have started squeal-screaming her name, even though she isn't supposed to break formation. She didn't for the record, because she is good at what she does, but she did whisper to her friend &quo…

The littlest lamb

These pictures are from when Hunter and I recently spent time with our only niece. We re-met her in October because she lives in West Virginia and we last saw her in November last year, when she was approximately 2 months old. For this visit, she had pierced ears, wobbled around on her own, and showed off her gorgeous and outgoing personality with each action she took. She is an actual living, breathing baby doll you just want to bite for all her cuteness. Well, I do anyway. That's typically my response to anything ridiculously cute, partially or fully chubby, and/or if you have sausage toes.

Once upon a time, there was a magical land called Forever 21 where alllll the fun accessories you'll ever need lived...


We have 3 nephews older than this little lamb, and they are also examples of amazingness through and through, but man, there is something about the first baby girl...


Look at her paw!! She has her first sugar cookie from her auntie Meggie. OMG I want to gnaw on h…

Side of downtime, hold the shame

A funny thing happened on the way to my Sunday getting started. Whilst at the gym, you know, just working on that fitness (Hey girl, Fergie!), I was scrolling the latest Twitter feed and found an article posted via Cosmopolitan Magazine by writer Sarah Wexler that caught my attention.

The article articulates the shaming that is associated with taking a day to just be. Do nothing. Kick back. Order takeout. Nap.all.day.long. The author talks about rejuvenation and the need to hit stop, and how she spent her day doing absolutely nothing. And how it felt so good. But, when out to eat and sharing this with girlfriends, she was immediately shamed when one exclaimed how she missed a beautiful day outside, and how her other friend had "used her Sunday to grocery shop, clean her house, walk the dog, and get a mani."

That last line there? Me to a T. I am that friend who would ramble off at brunch how I did this, this, and that, and was able to close out one to do list before…

Blogtober Recap and Takeaways

The challenge of Blogtober has come and gone. I am pleased to acknowledge my full 31 day participation. This was my main reason to join in on this fabulous Helene and TaylorLinkUp, so I feel all elated, like after any good marathon.

This provided me something to look forward to and every night I would try to get my post ready for publishing in the AM. Some nights, well, my bed won the debate, thus causing me to get up and be sure to write a good post at the start of my day. Let me just say, this required a 30 minute earlier than normal wake up time.

There were about 3 topics I didn't know what to say. I remember I went to bed so disappointed when the first prompt that I was like uh-oh, this 31 days straight may not happen because I have nothing to say, occurred. But as any good writer's block happens, it cleared. An "I'll face it in the morning" approach worked in my favor. The post in question, about my funniest memory from childhood, ended up being one o…
