January 23-My handwriting.

January 25-I think  this is actually the only dog picture this entire week.  

January 26-Random memory lane with Mady.  

January 27-Happy 2nd Birthday Grady! Grady is Spencer's half-brother.

Finish This!

So I'm totally late to class today, actually was gonna play hookie, but decided to play along with my friends Jen and Nicole for Finish This! 


1. I use my “green thumb” to …pet my unicorn, because they are both imaginary things
2. The secrets to life is...
there is no secret.  The secret to life 
3. I get my money’s worth by…buying quality products.  
4. On a scale of 1 to 10, my level of organization is…seven.  
5. A gentleman always…opens the door for his wife/significant other, treats all women with respect, is caring.  
6. Handwritten notes are…one of my favorite things...ever!

Thank God for All I've Missed. (TGBTL #8)



When I was four, I thought I wanted to be Shania Twain.

When I was fourteen, I thought I wanted to be a vet tech.

When I was sixteen, I was going to be a nurse. I wanted to go to a four year school.  I wanted to move away from everything I knew.

When I was eighteen, I wanted to be a teacher, a counselor, a probation officer and I finally ended up going to school for court reporting.

& now I'm twenty one, almost twenty-two, and I am so grateful, I never became any of that, well other than the court reporter, ha!

It totally reminds me of that song by Darius Rucker, This, Thank God for all I've missed, because it led me here to, THIS!

Thursday Three.



The last three nights, my brother Ryan, Lynn and my Dad all played our Marbles Game.  The last three nights, Lynn and I have kicked the boys butts.  It was really fun, it's been nice being able to sit down and rib each other and laugh.

I did some retail therapy with one of my best friends Vanessa last night and I got quite a lot for relatively little money.  We met up at the Mall of America around 3:30 yesterday & walked around.  I bought the comfiest yoga bra and yoga pants at VS & then a pair of Bar Paw boots and then a few lotions at Bath&Body Works. I'd call it a successful trip.  

Then last night when we were playing marbles, Ryan told me about what he learned about in youth group, they're talking about sex and relationships and this is what he tells me: I have to approve any boy before he can take you out on a date or be your boyfriend.  And if he tries to have sex with you, I'll give him a knuckle.  Cue the big sister tears.  I always wanted a big brother, but it looks like my younger brother is going to do that job for me!  

Have a great almost Friday loves! 

xo.

The Girl Between the Lines #7



"I've always wanted a key necklace, don't ask me why, because I don't know why." I told my Grandma that summer/fall.

I completely forgot that conversation until Christmas Day of that same year. I opened it & the first thought that came to my mind was, she remembered.  She remembered me telling her that I've always wanted one.  & that made me feel so loved and special.

I don't take the necklace off ever.  I've added another smaller key to it, as well as an old turquoise ring that I have.  It reminds me of how much my grandparents love me & I feel naked without it on.

What's something tangible that holds intangible value to you? Go link up with Lauren or Hayley and let them know!

Life Lately.


My girl Erin posted a picture of her in her husband's safety goggles, so I thought hey what the heck.  

Why yes, I realize I am quite late to the game today.  I have a day off today & I slept in and am slowly, but surely catching up on the current season of Chicago Fire. 

Also attempting to clean and organize my room and closet, because they haven't had tender loving care in way too long.  

Have any of y'all heard Garth Brooks' first new single in forever? It's The Call & features a certain Ms. Yearwood as well.  

LOVE it.  It'll be a part of my Meghan's Mixtape 4, which will be live Saturday.

& lastly for this mixbag of a post, my favorite author's last book in her Wanted series is being released tonight at midnight, Kelly Elliot is the bomb dot com.  

Thus ending the most random post in They Call Her Meghan's history. 

Meghan out.

Saturday Mixtape #3

Back for the third week of my favorite songs!


I'll be the first one to admit that I was very skeptical about liking this, but I think Florida Georgia Line's version is good, but I still love Garth Brooks' version as well!

This is from one of my favorite shows, Nashville, I love Lennon & Maisy 

I just love the sound and feel of this song, Brad, Dierks and Hunter kill it!

Don't Ask Me How I Know.

Just take it from me,
-that when you are shopping for your soon-to-be stepmom's wedding dress, don't suggest Victoria's Secret, she'll laugh at you and ask if your dad put you up to it.  Just so you don't think I'm completely crazy, I was only 8 at the time.

-that the best thing you can do for your kids is get them a dog, and they'll thank you later.

-that the hardest thing you'll have to go through is losing your grandpa unexpectedly at 14 and then finding out less than a month later your other grandpa has cancer.

-that you should always tell the people you love that they are just that, you'll never know when the last time will be for that!

you need to link up with Fal for her Take it From Me linkup :)

All Things Possible.

Linking up with Ashley for: 


I just finished Kurt Warner's autobiography All Things Possible 

I have read the book him and his wife wrote titled First Things First and also Brenda's book One Call Away, but somehow never read Kurt's book.  The biggest thing that drew me to him and his book was the fact that he is a Christian.  & then secondly that he puts his family second, only to his faith.  If you don't know who Kurt Warner is he is a retired AFL/NFL quarterback.  He led the Rams to the 1999 Superbowl and won, where he said my favorite quote from the whole book, first things first, I have to thank my Lord and Savior up above-Thank you Jesus! 

I love how he seems so down-to-earth and grateful for everything he's gone through to be who he is.  Even if you aren't a football fan, I still think you can learn a lot from him.  The one thing I didn't like about it was the editing.  

That being said, I'll give the book an A-

This link-up is pretty much my favorite one in all of blog land, if you want to join in go check out Lauren's blog for more details! 

So I shared my favorite piece of advice last year here, so I'm gonna share my second favorite piece of advice/wisdom.  


I don't know how many times I tried to use the but everybody's doing it excuse on my parents growing up. We were talking about that a few nights ago, my Dad and I, and he's like not everybody is doing it, because you're not. Touche Dad, touche.  

I think there's so much that our society has dubbed as the norm/right way to do things now just because everyone is doing it, and I have had to realize that just because everyone is doing it, doesn't mean that it's right.  

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Random Meghan Facts.





1. It drives me absolutely bonkers when singers don't enunciate the G's at the endings of words.  Common offenders include Taylor Swift, and Big and Rich do it in Caught in the Moment.

2.  I am that person that sings even when she has her headphones in and I'm not even an iota apologetic about it.

3. When I get really excited, I rub my hands together, which I get from my dad.  When I get really really excited, I flap.  Lynn loves to make fun of me for it.  One of my favorite authors does it too, except she calls it muppet flailing and that's just plain awesomesauce.

4. I chopped my hair off in October 2012 and I'm still trying to grow it out again.

5. If I could have anyone listen to one song it's Mark Wills' Don't Laugh at Me, it helped me get through teasing and name calling when I was younger.

6. I just started watching Chicago Fire, and to call me obsessed would be an understatement.  I mean have you seen who the firefighters are? #swoon.

7. I really want a tattoo.  I have actually quite a few that I want, but my first one is going to be "If heaven wasn't so far away."

8. If money were no object, I'd open up my own coffee shop & then also be an author.

9. My favorite sport is hockey, followed closely by NASCAR, although I do love watching football and baseball too.  I cheer for the MN Wild, Hendrick Motorsports, the Carolina Panthers and MN Twins for their respective sports.

10. I found the above quote on Pinterest last night, and it was like YES! SO true.  My sister and I aren't speaking at the moment and I'm learning that she gave me the scissors and I have to be okay with cutting her off for now.  Doesn't mean I don't love her, just means I can't keep getting hurt over and over without getting bitter.

13 January 2014

Alien Smiley Face.


"You shower first!" "No you shower first!" Mady and I bickered back and forth, and I suppose it should be noted that we had two showers that could be used, but yet we were still arguing over who was going to shower first.  

When my words didn't make her shower first, I decided, I was going to hit her, and then she pinched me, and not a little pinch either, it was an I'm going for blood pinch.  It bled, and then scabbed, and then I had a sideways half moon scar, a few years after that, when I was 14 or 15, a freckle appeared there, thus giving the appearance of what Mady & I called my alien smiley face scar.  Now, the scar itself has completely faded, but Mady always loved telling people she gave me my favorite scar.  

Any fun stories behind any of your scars?
