When I Grow Up I Wanna Be A Kid!

Anyone know the song I'm referencing in my title?  
No? It's off of a Mary-Kate & Ashley MOA movie. 
& that above sentence has made me look like a complete loser.. 

But it does come in handy that this week's Sunday Social has to do with when we were kids!  

Sunday Social
1. What do you miss most about being a kid?

The simplicity of everything.  Not having to worry about money.  

2. Did you have a nickname growing up? What was it?

My Grandpa called me Meggy, most everyone in my Mom's family called me Megs.  As I grew up through junior high and high school I had a variety of nicknames ranging from Legs to Toilet Seat to Dipstick to TUPAC to anything my sister and I could come up with.  Legs was because my uncle thought that's what my brother called me once, and it stuck, Toilet Seat because Mady was Piddle, Dipstick and Mady was Dumbnut.  & TUPAC? TUPAC stood for Total Utter Piece of Crap ;) Yeah, my sister is so nice, but I call her Princess, so it works.  

3. What was your favorite thing to do at recess?
FOUR SQUARE! I loved it!

4. What did you want to be when you grew up?

Shania Twain.  No really I did.  My younger cousin Emily & I were going to be her when we grew up :)

5. What was your favorite toy?

Anything Barney.  Seriously.  I was obsessed from 3 to 5.  Like had every movie, book, stuffed animal, everything.  Even went to a live concert.  Yeah I was that obsessed!

6. What is the funniest thing you did as a kid that your parents still remind you about?
Not my parents, but my Aunt & Uncle remind me of this all the time, it was when my Aunt was dating my Uncle Chris and he was laying on my Barney stuffed animal & I yanked it out from underneath him & bopped him on the head with it.  Nobody messed with my Barney!

If I were...

I saw this on Janna's blog and I really liked the idea, so here we are :)

If I were a gemstone, I'd be Turquoise.  
If I were a scent, I'd be freshly dried sheets.
If I were a pair of shoes, I'd be cowboy boots.
If I were the weather, I'd be an overcast fall day.
If I were a facial expression, I'd a face splitting grin.
If I were a car, I'd be an old Chevy.
If I were a time of day, I'd be late night.
If I were a month, I'd be April.
If I were a place, I'd be a book nook.

If I were a liquid, I'd be iced coffee.
If I were a taste, I'd be a greasy hamburger.
If I were a sea animal, I'd be a octopus.
If I were a food, I'd be chicken and dumplings.
If I were a color, I'd be neon pink.
If I were a musical instrument, I'd be a violin.

If I were a flower, I'd be a white rose.
If I were a planet, I'd be Jupiter.  
If I were an object, I'd be a notebook
If I were a fruit, I'd be strawberries that were drizzled in chocolate and topped with whipped cream.
If I were a sound, I'd be laughter.
If I were a day of the week, I'd be a Friday.

Dear Friday.

Dear Life, 
You've been really great lately, keep it up?

Dear Mady,
Happy belated birthday sister!  Can't believe you're already 17.  

Dear Driver's Test,
Next week, YOU.ARE.MINE.

Dear Cooper & Chloe,
When I tell you to share your toys, I do not mean rip the toy in half and then chew on it.  Silly dogs.  

Dear Work,
Although you can drive me nuts at times, I really do love all of my co-workers.  

Dear Garnier Fructis,
I love your deep conditioner, my hair is feeling so soft & I la la la love it! 

Dear Blog Friends,
If you only remember one thing from my blog, let it be this,

Have a great Friday, and a great weekend <3 p="p">

Tuesday Rambles.

I have nothing of huge substance to say today, so you get a Meghan life update, aren't you all excited?

one-I got a new computer!  It's not a Mac sadly, but I love it! It's a Samsung and it works beautifully! I'm able to do all my schoolwork, and blog and write and do everything without having to worry about it crashing!

two- school is going really good, I'm seriously thinking of doing a post on what exactly I'm going to school for & explaining it all to you guys, because I don't know if you guys understood what court reporting really is.  Anyone interested in learning more about my field?

three- I'm taking my driver's test on November 7th, and I couldn't be more excited!  My Grandpa did a great job teaching me this summer & I am now in love with driving, which is something I never thought I would say.  So good vibes would be great for that!

four- Speaking of grandparents, it was really nice, I got to spend the morning with them one on one Sunday, all three of us went to church and then my Grandpa took me to a "pig roast" otherwise known as pulled pork sandwiches, and I loved it.  My grandparents are just great people!

five- I'm pretty excited, I joined a small group at church, so hopefully I can make some new friends while learning more about God in the process!

six- Had a great Skype date with my best cousin friend Spencer last night! We talked for over an hour about absolutely nothing and it was awesome! He's coming home from school over his fall break in October, so maybe we'll be able to get together for coffee or something :)

All right I think that's it!

Have a good day loves!

Friday Letters

Dear Chloe, I love you baby girl, but waking up at 8, that's really not necessary.  Thank you for falling asleep in your kennel right away after you go potty.  I appreciate it.  

Dear Old Computer,
I will miss having a Mac, but I will not miss the issues you gave me.  

Dear New Computer,
Here's to a great new beginning, I can't wait to get you all figured out.  

Dear Friday Night Lights,
Would you please quit being so addicting?  & stop makin' me cry!

Dear Kyle Chandler,
You're cute as Eric Taylor!  Like really good looking!

Dear Mom,
I'm kinda excited for Saturday, going to Cyn's wedding.

I'm A Blog Star Y'all v.2

If you're visiting from Blog Star, welcome!

Mrs. Monologues

 & Why yes, I am jumping on this bandwagon.
& yes, it is quite late to jump on said bandwagon, but what else is new, I've always been more of a better late than never kind of gal :)

So what would you know if you really knew me?


If you really knew me you, you would know that I take my friends and family very seriously.  They are my number one thing after my faith.  I am very close with both my Mom and Stepdad and my Dad and Stepmom.  

If you really knew me, you would know that my faith makes me who I am.  I am what some might call a Jesus freak.  I try to live my life in a God-pleasing way each and every day.

If you really knew me, you would know that my grandparents are my biggest heroes and I look up to them so much and my biggest fear is losing them.  

If you really knew me, you would know that I am a people pleaser, I want to make everybody happy most of the time, and when I can't, I feel like I let that person down. 

If you really knew me, you would know that I'm a lot more outgoing know than I was in high school, but I still don't have a ton of friends. 
This was like 2008.  We look so young!  
If you really knew me, you would know that my younger (step)sister is my probably my best friend.  She's my closest ally and my biggest confidante.  

If you really knew me, you would know that I always have some sort of music playing, and it's usually country.  

If you really knew me, you would know that I would do anything to help a friend out, such as letting you all know that To Write Love on Her Arms is now accepting online donations, and if you are looking for a chapter to donate to? Why not, donate to my friend Jayme's chapter? She is the co-president of the Drake University Chapter.  Where can you go to donate? Right here!

Second time linking up with Becky!

1. Tell us what you are looking forward to this fall?
Jeans and hoodies.  Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks.  Enjoying the last warm days before Minnesota Winter is upon us.  Bonfires.  
2. Show us your fall style.
Jeans and hoodies really are all I rock.  It's what I'm comfortable in.  I love my worn in BSU Beavers hoodie and my Maurices fading skinnies.  
3. Tell us your favorite things to do in the fall. If you have children, activities to do with the kids?
I try and spend as much time with my grandparents as I can before they migrate down to Arizona for the winter.  I love baking with my Grandma & Texas Hold 'Em with my Grandpa.  
I love fourwheeling through the falling leaves and just watching the leaves change colors
I love curling up with a good book and my Starbucks cup for a nice cozy reading sesh.  
4. Show us your favorite fall beverage.
Pumpkin Spice anything!! 
5. Tell us, how you will be participating in halloween this year. Plans? Costume ideas? 
I am probably working, so I might dress up for that, but other than that, nothing really too exciting so far!
