& I'm Also Thankful For...


--I'm thankful that country music is what plays in the background of my life.

--That my iPhone comes with a built in flashlight, I can't tell you how many times that thing has come in handy. 

--that I'm getting a new design from Sarah soon :)

--that although I'm missing Thanksgiving because I work, I don't have to work overnight, because our sales are at 6p and 8p Thanksgiving.  #gottafindasilverliningsomewhere

--that we have decided that we will not be doing the family Thanksgiving 5k this year, my legs hurt for a like a week afterwards last year.  

--I'm thankful for Brantley Gilbert.  I mean hello, have you seen him? Country music singer, tattooed and just all around sexy! 

--that Arizona and Callie are back together on Grey's, because that intern Arizona was with? DROVE.ME.NUTS. Can you say stage five clinger? 

--Starbucks Peppermint White Mocha

--that my momma taught me how to stand up for myself and to not take crap from anybody.  

--that facetime exists, because that's my main communication point between me and my cousin/best friend, Spencer.

&& before I leave, I just have to give my grandpa a huge happy birthday wish, he's 69 and this is a birthday we weren't sure he would be getting after a year full of health scares.

The Lie Revealed & Winner.

So on Wednesday, I posted two truths and a lie and asked you to pick which one was the lie.

To refresh your memories, the choices were

#1- I am indirectly related to at least one NFL player--this is a truth.  My stepbrother's cousin is Chad Greenway of the MN Vikings, he's just on the side that my stepbrother and I don't share.

#2-I am saving my first kiss for marriage-this is also a truth. I felt God telling me to make this commitment when I was 15 or 16.

Which means #3, that I took my parents car for a joyride when I was 14 and got pulled over by my dad's best friend is a LIE!

Four people picked out the lie and the winner of the gift card of their choice is Rachael from Pretty in Pink!

2 Truths and a Lie. (+GIVEAWAY)

Oh yeah, one of the classic icebreakers our lovely teachers would make us play the first day of class in high school, now bringing it to blogland with a twist! Whoever guesses the lie correctly will be entered into a pot to win a $10 credit to their choice of Starbucks, Amazon or Target.  

1) I am indirectly related to at least one NFL star.  

2)I'm saving my first kiss for my wedding day.

3)I took my parents car out for a joyride when I was 14, and my dad's best friend pulled me over.  

Get your guesses in by tomorrow at 11:59p and I'll announce the lie and the winners on Friday!

Another I Confess Sesh.

I confess that when this song comes on the radio, I turn it all the way up and jam out, because you GOTTA HANK IT!

I confess that I probably watch too much Reba, and that I'm completely okay with it.  On a related note, I want to be Reba when I grow up.  When I was young, I wanted to be Shania, and now I want to be Reba, make it happen universe!

I confess that I will do just about anything to get tickets to the rumored Garth Brooks 2014 tour.

I confess that I am not ready for winter one bit, I don't like the cold.

I confess that I still love when my mom braids my hair for me, it's nice not having to blow dry my hair, and who doesn't like when their hair is played with?

I confess that it makes me happy that my little sister reads my blog, Hi Liv!

I confess that I crack my knuckles...a lot.

What's something that you'd like to confess?

Things I'm Not Good At...

So Allie posted about this last week and I thought it was a great idea, so here we go!

Things that I, Meghan, am not good at...

1) Dealing with people who play stupid. I know this sounds harsh, but honestly, I understand if you truly don't know something, but people who play stupid, when I know they know certain things, drives me crazy.

2) Hiding my emotions.  I wear my heart on my sleeve, and people can tell when I'm sad or upset. Which kind of sucks when I don't want everyone to know that I'm having a bad day.

3) Change.  Although I am getting better at this, I don't really like change, I can handle smaller changes, but big changes, I don't handle very well.

4) BSing,  With me, what you see is what you get.  I try to be myself all the time.

5) Concentrating on one thing.  As I write this post, I have 7 tabs open on my Chrome, two books I'm in the middle of writing, and listening to music.

6) Saying No.  I'm learning to get better at this, otherwise I'm go go go all the time, but this is one of my least favorite things about myself.  Feeling guilty about saying no.

Never Ever Ever

Never ever ever will I turn down going to a country concert with my cousins or my sister...The Band Perry will be my next one in February.  

Never ever ever will I not be a crazy dog lady and enjoy cuddling up with this boy or my dogs at my dad's. 

Never ever ever will I apologize for being me, what you see is what you get.  

Never ever ever will I not be happy when I hear that my work momma is coming back to work after another two week leave.  

Never ever ever will I turn down a Peppermint White Mocha from Starbucks, bonus points if it's in a red cup!

Say Hello

1. What is your morning routine?
When I work early, I shower the night before, get up, do my hair, do the whole brush teeth/wash face, get all fresh routine and then make my self some coffee.  
If I work later, I will wake up slowly in bed, checking my social media, then do the same as above, and I'll either write for a while or read some blogs.  
2. Are you on Instagram? If so, what is your username? Who are 3 of your favorite IGers?
Three of my faves are:

3. Please tell us 1-3 of your daily “must read” bloggers.
Jenn @ Knee-Deep in Munchkinland
Kenzie @ Life According to Kenz 
Chelsea @ Sunny with a Side of Sprinkles. 
4. Tell us a little about you and your family.
My parents divorced when I was younger, I have one brother that is my mom and my dad's, Matt who is 18.  My dad married my stepmom, Lynn, who had Mady who is also 18.  Together they had my brother Ryan who is 11.  My mom married my stepdad Curt, who had Nik who is 23 and Rebekka who is 18(almost 19).  They had Zak who is 13 and Olivia who is 10.  I have three furbabies.  Leader is a beagle and lives with my mom.  Cooper and Chloe are my dogs at my dad's.  Coop is a weim and Chloe is a golden.  I live with my Dad, Lynn and Ryan.  
5. What are your favorite holiday traditions?
I work at Walmart, we close at 8 on Christmas Eve and the last few years, my Grandparents, parents and brother and sister all come and pick me up and embarrass me.  Last year I didn't work, so it didn't happen, but the year before that, there was bells and whistles and horns and I loved it.  
6. Tell us one random fact about you! Make it fun!
I have three siblings that are 18 right now and not one of them is a twin.  #BOOM. Two of them are only 8 days apart though.

Never Ever Ever

linking up with some of my favorite ladies for the first time in a long time!

Never Ever Ever....

  • will I not miss my grandparents when they go down to AZ for the winter
  • will I prefer winter over Fall, Summer or Spring
  • will I not be a dog person.  I love my babies.
  • will I not laugh at the lists on Buzzfeed.  
  • will I make the mistake of getting a Peppermint Mocha again instead of a White Peppermint Mocha, there is definitely a difference!

8 Things.

So I saw this a while back on Erin's blog & thought it would make a good blog post of my own.  There was an article floating around the internet and blogosphere a few weeks back about the eight things every happy woman should have:

1) A go-to drink:
If I'm out with friends, it's a mudslide.  If I'm just at home it's a Mike's Hard Black Cherry.  

2)A go-to Karaoke song:
Either Garth Brooks' The Thunder Rolls or Friends in Low Places, it must be the live version though! 

3) A uniform:
Well if my favorite worn in jeans and old hoodie is a uniform, then yeah, I got a uniform! 

4) A hairstylist that they love:
Yep.  She doesn't cost me an arm and a leg and she knows me well enough where the small talk isn't awkward.  

5) An exercise routine:
I think I should go on the elliptical tonight, nah, maybe tomorrow.  Oh that's not an exercise routine? My bad. 

6) A hobby: 
Reading and writing.  

7) A best friend:
Yep.  Blessed with three of them.  

8) A healthy sense of self:
Yeah, I think so!
