Life Lately

1.  This morning I decided to stop at Starbucks because I was just really, really tired.  I went against my norm of a Skinny Vanilla Latte and went with the Iced Peach Tea Lemonade and it was seriously life changing. 

2.  On Friday I had every intention of staying in but yea that didn’t happen.  The bf was in a golf tournament that went from Thursday to Saturday and Friday they had a big party.  It actually ended up being fun and I got to see some people I haven’t seen in a while.   Did I mention there was dancing involved?  Yea, I might have broken it down a few times or so.  I might have also had a tad bit too much to drink.  It had nothing to do with the shot of jaeger I had of course. 

I'm only semi embarrassed for taking a mirror selfie.
My thoughts on the below picture:  Phil looks like a pimp, the other couple are just about the best thing ever and really Meghan with that position?

3.  I can’t get over how stinkin cute my niece and nephew are.  I went down to Indy to spend some time with my SIL, while my brother was helping some friends move.  We went to a Mexican restaurant for lunch, which honestly was a nightmare because the kids hadn’t had naps yet.   If you have had ANY experience with toddlers who haven’t had naps yet, you get where this is going.  Poor lil guy had a 30 minute melt down outside the restaurant.  Meanwhile I was still inside with my niece trying to get her to eat.  Finally, I packed up all our food and met them outside so we could head home.  They took naps while Jody and I watched She’s All That.  And can I just say that movie wasn’t as good as it was when it came out in 1999.  Actually, was it ever good? 

These are some snaps I took after their much needed nap time. :)

4.  Saturday night I ran the Neon Dash with Mel and Car.  I’m honestly so thankful to have these ladies in my life.  Thanks social media & bloglandia! So my thoughts of the race are summed up pretty much dead on by Mel and Car so I would go read their race cap if you are interested. 

5.  I had my first sleepover with girlfriends in forever.  Seriously, it was pretty great.  After the race we got cleaned off, put jammies on and all snuggled on the couch watching The Hills.  I can’t remember the last time I have done that.  I of course was the first one to pass out.  Now I’m known as the chick that falls asleep first.  Whatever, I could have a worst reputation. 

6.  Floaties are maybe one of the best inventions.  Most of Sunday was spent on one with Car and Mel at the pool with a Blueberry Woodchuck.  Again that might be one of the best inventions too. 

7.  I’ve been the slacker of all slackers lately.  I’ve had a to do list as long as my arm and I’ve only managed to cross off a few of those items.  Yesterday I managed to half cross off the laundry and folding.  I say half because I still have two loads in and about 3 more to do including towels, sheets and bedding. 

8.  I’m beyond frustrated because my computer won’t recognize my RAW files.  I’ve downloaded the converter and everything and I’m still having issues.  Right now I’m downloading them to Picassa, putting them in google and then saving them to my computer.  By the time they are uploaded to my blog and Facebook they are grainy and the quality sucks.  HELP.  I don’t know if it’s my computer or what but if you have suggestions let me know. 

9.  I’m already stressed about the 5+ weddings I am attending.  I’m not even sure why I’m stressing but I am.  I guess it could be a compilation of money concerns, traveling, taking time off, what the heck to wear and not knowing when some of them are taking place.  I’m a constant worrier and some things are out of my control so this is when I need to be like “Meghan, calm down and just go with the flow.  Weddings are a happy time.”  Phew okay, I already feel better.   Sometimes you just gotta write things down and let it out.

10.  MOM AND MARTHA WILL BE HERE IN -8 DAYS!  You know I’m excited when I pull out the CAPS.  They are going to be staying with us from July 2nd to the 8th.  


  1. LITERALLY, sleepover was the best thing ever... but much like Lauren will always be known as the girl who didn't go to Paris, you will always be known as the one who fell asleep first, haha! :) I'm sooooo glad that we did the race together, even though it was mostly a fake race and more of a shove-people-out-of-our-way event. Love your face!!

  2. Have you ever had the Passion Tea Lemonade for Sbucks? So good and so amazing and I'm so addicted! Also, all of your recaps made me sad! You guys are adorable and kiiiinda awesome! :)

  3. ok number 3 is why i am not ready for kids. they might be the cutest things, but i am not ready for meltdowns

  4. We need to have another sleepover this summer! I'm glad you fell asleep first because I was right behind you... but now I don't have to have that reputation! :) I need to go try that lemonade now!

  5. Very busy!!! After reading this I am ready for a nap lol

  6. That iced tea sounds amazing! Also, I love all these photos (especially the mirror selfie- sometimes it has to happen)! I agree with the She's All That assessment, when 90's movies don't live up to my expectations I'm crushed- but really my expectations are too high- I'm not sure what the fuss was about Freddie Prinze Jr. I too am guilty of the pre-wedding stress, but they're always fun and by the time you've gotten there you forget about the expense of missing work/gifts/etc and then it's like a free dinner and you look fancy!

  7. sometimes change is necessary and life changing case in point with your regular starbucks drink, it is good to branch out a bit!

  8. Jaeger and I had a falling out several years ago. Let's just say that drinking it on the regular earned me the nickname: "The Beast." Yowza! haha
    What's a "raw" file??

  9. You took a mirror selfie because you looked damn good! No apologies needed. Your niece and nephew are freaking adorable and those pics you took of them are beyond amazing.

  10. That race looked so fun! And yes, your niece and nephew are super cute! You take some pretty awesome pictures!
