31 August 2015


I haven't done a grateful post in all together way too long, so yes it's Monday evening, and it's not "prime blog time" but it's prime Meghan time, so here we go!

-a "weekend" off--meaning my two days off are in a row. This week it's today & tomorrow and after the last two days, I was more then ready for a couple days off.

-my love of reading--I've been in a reading slump, but in the last two days I've finished four books because I needed to leave my world and get lost in someone else's. Dramatic much?

-my handmade towel turban--my grandma made me one and I absolutely love it!

-the start of a new month--August had it's ups and downs, and I'm ready for September and all it entails including but not limited to: blogtember, the beginning of fall and Mady's birthday :)

what's something you're grateful?

Join me in linking up with Emily & let us all know!

What's Up Wednesday-August.

Linking up with Shay & company for What's Up Wednesday!

What I'm eating
I had a wonderful lunch with my grandma yesterday at Cowboy Jack's where we just caught up on life, and just had great conversation. As much as we may butt heads, she's one of my biggest supporters and I honestly don't know what I would do without her! 

What I'm reminiscing about
The fact that my baby is no longer a baby! He'll be 5 on New Year's Eve, I can't believe we've had him that long already!! 

What I'm loving
The cooler temperatures that have been around this last week & that it's almost State Fair time, Mady & I are hoping to go, possibly get my grandpa to take us ;)

What I've been up to
I finally got to go down to Iowa and see my best friend and go to the Knoxville Nationals with my Mom and our family. The best friend and I didn't get any pictures together other than our amazing book haul that we got at Half Price! 

What I'm dreading
The fact that after Labor Day, it's a downward slide towards the holidays in the retail world. I love Christmas, I just get extremely busy at work! 

What I'm working on
Getting the blog all ready for Blogtember with Bailey Jean

What I'm excited about
All that fall entails & all of my favorite shows come back! 

What I'm watching/reading 
I'm almost finished with Never Have I Ever by Katie Heaney, but I have four more books that I'm in the middle of reading that I would like to finish within the next few days!

& watching Big Brother & Twins baseball mostly! 

What I'm listening to
My pandora station of late has been Craig Campbell mixed with Mark Wills. 

What I'm wearing
I'm starting to dig out my hoodies and jeans! I'm excited for Fall. 

What I'm doing this weekend

Working... #aintnorestfortheweekend 

& I have to close both nights after not doing it for like 2 months, so this ought to be fun, considering by the time I clock out when I close is when I'm usually asleep now. I'll get through it though! 

What I'm looking forward to next month
Blogtember and FALL! 

What else is new
Not too much, just can't believe it's going to be September next week!

Hashtag Humpday.

Oh hey, it's Wednesday & it's also the first day of my vacation. #holla.

I'm heading down to Iowa with my momma and fam-jam to watch the Knoxville Nationals for Sprint Car racing and also I get to see my #bestestfortherestest not that I'm excited or anything, spoiler alert, I'm majorly excited. I haven't seen her since October and that's way too freaking long.

This blog will turn/has turned 5 sometime in August, but when I rebranded early this year I completely forgot to note the date I first published before going through and getting rid of bad posts. #bloggerfail

I'm at the point of summer that I'm just over it and ready for fall. Remind me of this in three months when I'm whining about the cold. #iwanthoodiesandpumpkinspice

Three Things Tuesday.

I saw this on Becca's blog a few weeks back and I thought I'd share three things that I'm loving/looking forward to this week!

1//I get to see my mommy tonight. & yes, I still call her mommy or mama. We're heading down to Iowa for some racing and if I haven't mentioned it a million times, I get to see my bestest Saturday&Sunday. #hellayeah

2//7 day stretch is finished! As of 8pm tonight, my 7 day stretch at work is COMPLETE! Yesterday my brain just quit braining. One of our cashiers was asking about who was at the service desk and I said well, it's me and karen. I couldn't remember the other half of the fantastic four as we call ourselves. Or as I call us. Btdubs, it took me a few minutes but I did finally remember the other half!

3//My uncle Jim is in town starting tomorrow, so hopefully I'll get to see him after I get back from Iowa, he lives in CO and I haven't seen him in at least a year if not two.

What is something you're looking forward to this week?

Grateful Heart.

I haven't linked up with Emily in way too long for Grateful Heart, so I plan to remedy that this morning!

miss olivia//my baby sister turned 12 this past week & I'm so grateful that she's my sister, even if she's way more cool and styling than I ever am. She looks up to me and that's not something I take lightly. Ever since I was her age, I've wanted to be first a good example to all of my younger siblings and now that I'm older, I want to be a safe place that they can come to talk to and get advice without fear of judgment or me running to my parents if they mess up.

mady//our relationship has had our ups and downs and if you have a sister and you're relationship has always been peachy and you've never had fights, I want to call BS on you right now, because I love Mady to death, but there are days that I would love to strangle her. There's no one that understands my Lynn-Mom and her antics as much as Mady does and we can make fun of her without being mean and we have the same sense of humor and I would be so lost without the blonde half of the girls as our parents referred to us when we were growing up and still do sometimes.

jayme//I am so grateful for this girl, she has loved me at my worst and celebrated with me at my best, she's been there through almost 5 years of growing up and trying to be an adult(keyword there is trying!), she's my person, except better. We have a crazy sense of best friend telepathy and I honestly don't know what I would do without her! Plus I get to see her in t-minus 5 days and that has me a little actually a lottle giddy.

who or what are you grateful for this week?
