The Scoop.

The good news is, I am alive.
I haven't blogged in sometime but life has just been cray cray!! 

So here's to catch you up:

Has thankfully been steady.
November and December ALWAYS make me nervous,
people aren't focused on my industry as much,
and more on gifts, family and fun. (as they should be)
But sometimes this does worry me.
But, today is November 30, and I've hit my numbers!
Thankful to God for that one!! 
and a couple angels too, who sent me some business!!

I got to see all the fam..
Had tooo many drinks, even more food and lots of laughs!!
*Which has motivated me to workout every day this week*
(insert patting myself on the back)
I also took this dandy while home.

Yes, this is really from my Dad's back porch.
Now you know why I get homesick every now and then.
It was so warm! 
We sat on the back porch and had happy hour as soon as we got there!!
I also made it to moms after partying to hard with this pretty girl!
I thought this was the best picture out of 10.
Guess my vision was already blurry. haha!!
After getting to moms, I got to cuddle with my two favorite pups.
Yorkie Love!!
All in all, it was a great Thanksgiving!!
Not to mention I had spent the last 3 weekends with my mom,
and we didn't kill each other!!
I actually miss her already this weekend!!

Well first things first..
I got frisky and decided I needed a change!!
I needed to cleanse my self of somethings and some people.
So I did!
I have taken down photos, cleaned carpets and ...
changed my hair!!
Nothing crazy, just a little sassy-ness added.
I decided to go ombre'
Which I won't lie.. I LOVE!
I seriously love it slightly curled, straight, pulled up whatever.
It's always a little sassy. 
This picture also doesn't show you the full length of it.
She cut the minimal off but thinned it and gave me a couple shorter bangs in the front. 
I couldn't love it more.
Lex Ladies, if your interested:
go check out Ainslie Walton @ Darrell's Hair Salon.
She's fair priced, easy to work with, and I have NEVER been disappointed.

I also decided to put my Christmas Tree up.
Thankfully, Whitney came over and helped.
I think putting up a tree alone, is just sad!
Here is my finished product:

I'm one of those people who, lay around and stare at it. I must admit! 

I also have been obsessed with sayings and e cards lately.
If you follow me on instagram (meggie_1002) you have seen some of these.
If not, you will enjoy!!

Funny Workplace Ecard: I work so I can afford the amount of alcohol required to continue going to work.

Love all these!!!
Sorry about all the single ones,
but you have to admit it's hard to be single around the holidays.
Facebook, twitter, everywhere you look is consumed with happy relationship and people taking that extra step.
Sometimes I need to remind myself that even though it would be easy
to settle, you just can't allow yourself.

that's what's up with me.
I'll be heading to a Stella Dot Jewelry party,
(hopefully I won't go broke)
and then who knows what else my weekend holds for me.

Currently.. I am.. {Borrowed}

HELLO ALL!! How is your Tuesday going!? Mine is as good as,
 Starbucks when it's freezing out side.. Oh hello, like today!! :) 
I borrowed this little number from the beautiful Keep Calm and Carry On because I SERIOUSLLLLLY had writers block today!!
 Not to mention, my new goal is to blog as often and as much as possible!!!
So after you get done, go on and check hers out too!! 

Reading: *a million emails from work. Being out all week is never fun, especially when you forget to set up your "Out of Office" and everyone thinks you are ignoring them!! *Buttttt, in my spare time I am seriously reading every trashy novel I can get my hands on.. (well that my Kindle can download) 50 shades as turned me into a monster. There is my confession for today as well!

Watching: Let me tell you, currently I am not only obsessed with the Voice (#teamBlake. #futureHubby) but I have really gotten into "Guys with Kids" It seriously makes me laugh and is such a nice break from the reality TV. Plus all my regulars (Greys Anatomy, Real Housewives of Atlanta (#teamCRAY), Jersey Shore..) I'm a little embarrassed now.. 

Thinking About: My devotional this morning. I bought this new app of Daily Devotionals for Women and I seriously, can't get enough!! It is the first thing I do in the morning, (even before social media, now) Here is just a snap shop from it. Hope it touches someone like it did me!! 

Loving: My arm candy. Now here is the story, I would always see on Pinterest and Instagram everyone's amazing bracelets and I would want them so bad!! In the last couple of months tho, I finally got it how I wanted and have some flexibility with it. I really do love the new "stacking" thing though!! (FYI my stepmom told me that was the "thing" back when she was young, and now its  back) --->either way, me likeyyy!!

Looking Forward To: The weekend!!! (Yes, I'm aware it's only Tuesday) BUT it's my nephew's birthday celebration and you know his Auntie Meg has to always have the best gift!! We have a full day of laser tag, football game and maybe ice skating ahead!!! Seriously, love spending time with my family!! I am so blessed.. A little sad though, my boy is going to be 10 years old!! AHH.. Guessing I'm heading to Toy-r-US to buy some "Skylanders" (I've bought so many, they send me exclusive coupons for them..#bestauntie!)

Wondering: How many people read my blog!! I seriously love every text, email and comment I get though!! For the couple of months I barely blogged, I would always get the question why I had stopped. Time is scarce these days, and the out of all the positive feedback I have gotten, the negativity is there too!

Cooking/Baking: Umm.... I'm lacking, let's be honest. I am a single gal, it's very seldom I cook anything more than some grilled chicken and mash potatoes! Dinner consists of leftovers, turkey sandwiches or a lean cuisine. I like to think I'm enjoying not cooking now, so someday when I'm married I won't mind it as much!! haha! :) 

Disliking: the cold weather. What happened to fall? I mean last week it's 70 degrees, this week it is in the low 40's. What in the world. I would love to not have to wear a jacket EVERYWHERE just yet. 

Making Me Happy: my wonderful friends!! I seriously, have the best group of girls in my life. When I had my surgery, I had countless texts, cards and visitors. I had friends bringing stuff by my house and running errands for me. I am honestly at a point in my life when I would rather have 5 or 6 GREAT friends then a bunch of shady ones. I'm thankful for the good ones and saying goodbye to the bad ones. God has definitely shaken me till I got the message. 
Wishing you and reminding you: Be thankful always!! It's so easy to focus on the stress, the busy schedule, the bills that are due or the boy that didn't call (or the husband getting on your nerves) but stop, take a second and remember what you do have!!

God is Great. Beer is Good. People are Crazy

God is Great. 

Beer is Good. 

People are Crazy.

No, but really!
Flipping through Satelite Radio this song was playing 
and it seriously explains my life right now.
Let me explain.

God is Great

Seriously. He IS! 
When I sit back and think about it, it literally BLOWS my mind.
How he could sacrifice his son for us.
While knowing our hearts, our flaws 
and how many times we would disappoint him.
He loves us more than I could ever imagine.
Living Christ-like is hard.
So many temptations and there are so many ways I fail him.
All I can say is he knows my heart, and I am forever grateful.

Beer is Good.

Yes, I do feel a little hypocritical writing about this one right after another,
but I didn't write the song, blame it on Billy.
Like I said, God knows my heart.. 
(but my mom is going to be disappointed still)
Side note:
Here is Billy, for all you Ladies viewing pleasure..

You're welcome.
my goodnessss!!!
(I might put that as my desktop picture.. but then I may not get any work done!!)
Last week I had "minor" oral surgery.
Minor which turned MAJOR.
I literally was out of work all week.
Dying, and on Narcotics for pain. (prescribed of course :) )
Due to the medicine, I couldn't drink.
Now this girl is one who appreciates a glass bottle of wine after work
or a couple 5 beers with friends.
Now, I'll be honest, so I don't start getting emails telling me to go to AA.
The first 3 or 4 days while I felt so bad I didn't care.
Honestly, I didn't even think about it.
But over the weekend while I was on a smaller dosage of pain meds
and feeling like my self again, I MISSED IT.
I mean, eating Mexican food without at LEAST a beer? 
*where do they do that at?*
Yes, maybe I slipped a couple. I won't lie.
But NOW,
I'm back!!!!!!!
I might have some beers after work. 
I'll leave it up to your imagination! 

People are Crazy.

Tell me if you disagree.
Nope, I didn't think so!
You want an example?
------>Here I am sitting in the Panera drive thru TODAY..
when I look behind me and there is a lady.
Bundled up in a coat.
Smoking a cig.
In the Rain.
While ordering. 
Then proceeds, to walk slowly behind my car.
Yes, my friends she WALKED through the Panera drive thru.
I  couldn't decide if I wanted to ask her if she wanted to get in my car,
or tell her to get her priorities in line.
In reality, I did nothing. 
I got my soup and salad and drove off
(but not before watching her pay, and the look on the girl's face)

Well I gotta goooo!! 
Hope you all survived Monday!! 
I'm playing catch up..
and that's never fun!

{{ Friday's Letters }} Link- UP


Dear God, Thank you for not giving up on me. 
I know I have been in a constant struggle lately but I know you always have my back. 

All I need

Dear Kelsey, Thank you for not leaving my side the last couple days while I've been sick. Now I know why they say dogs are mans best friends.

Dear iPhone, I don't know why there has to be this constant struggle between us. I'm really reconsidering this upgrade all the time.

Dear DMV, I have been there the last three days to renew my license.
Yes, the first time was my fault because I didn't know a gov't establishment was cash only..
But now you are working weird hours and today your system is down.
If I can't go out this weekend because of my license, we will fight.

Dear November, Take it easy on me. 

Dear Molly, I'm glad you are going to be keeping my mom company,
but Kelsey and I aren't sure about another dog in the family.
I guess I'll tell her to be nice to you to though.
You are cute as a stinkin' button!! 
Photo: Cole was SO surprised!

Dear Weekend, I am so glad you are here!! 
I sure have missed you. 
I'm just hoping I will feel like playing!!! 

Dear Readers, Thank you!! :) YOU rock!!
Everyone go link

Confessional Friday {Link Up}

I've been doing pretty good this week, blogging.
better than usual anyway.
But Let me just get right to it...
Here are just a couple of my confessions:
*I confess... I couldn't be more excited that it is Friday..
But I actually went home sick today from work.
Which really worries me..
*I confess... I am really excited about my Halloween costume tomorrow.
Hints why I am worried I might be getting sick.
*I confess... I went to Old Navy this week to get one thing for my costume.
and left with 7 different things.. oops
{what happened to my budget}
*I confess.. I really question people who don't dress up or like Halloween.
It's the one time of year you can dress up HOWEVER you want and act HOWEVER you want!!
*I confess... I am really feeling old these days.
I seriously sleep 8-9 hours a night.
I eat dinner around 6:00. WOW
*I confess... I am need of a vacation.
A beach. Cocktails. and a cute cabana boy!
*I confess... since I upgraded my iPhone.
I've been through 3.
Maybe that wasn't the smartest idea.
*I confess... I really think I have the best parents in the world.
I have been thinking all day how blessed I really am.
*I confess... I feel like guys these days are panzies. But really.
Scared of haunted houses, or scared to ask a girl out.
crazy to me.
*I confess... I am obsessed with my Kindle.
I seriously read so much more than I ever thought I would since I have gotten it!!
*I confess... I think you should all go link up with
Leslie for some Friday Confessionals!!!
Have a great weekend!!

In. A. Funk.

I hate when it happens.
But it usually happens.
Not often.
Probably less than most.
But there are days when I am just in a funk.
A funk about it all. 
so this is your warning, if you don't want to hear me vent.
leave. right. now.
Come back tomorrow. 
It will be better. 
It will be Friday!!

"If I have said it once, I have said it a million times.."
{my mom always says that}
but I am the most impatient person you will ever. meet!
{I get it from my Dad}:

If I have something on my mind, I want to do it then.
If there is a problem, I want to fix it ASAP.
If I see something I want, I want to get it.

It's a fault. and I realize that.
I pray about it all the time. 
I think that is the first step.
But I think more than anything. 
I need to let go and let God!
He knows best.
In everything.

faith in HIs timing

I get mad at myself for:
pressuring people.
rushing things.
over thinking.
blaming my self for other people's mistakes.
I constantly have to remind myself:

So true.

 I get reminded of this everyday.
that I can't always hold on to everyone I meet.
That some are meant to exit my life.
and yes, as much as it sucks.
meant to hurt me. lie to me. and make me humble. make me grow.
I need to forgive. let go. move on.
and smile about those people who stay around.

I can't decide if life is one big lesson.
or large amount of little lessons that make you grow.
with each step. situation. and relationship 
you learn more about people.
more about your self.
and really how strong you are.

You learn

It's a challenge.
I know that.
trying to remember your blessings and be thankful for them.
thankful for the constants in your life.
learning to take the variables as just that, variables.
realizing not every friend is really a "friend"
and that the truth isn't always honest. 

Maybe my "funk" today isn't really a funk.
but a moment of truth that I just needed to get out.
Either way.

Praise Him in the hallway!

{{{ I CONFESS... }}}

I confess...

*That I have drank cokes the last three days.. 
It has to stop ASAP!

*I confess... I got a new iPhone 4S yesterday.
Yes, I had an upgrade.
No, I didn't want a 5.
(I can't live without my battery case!)

*I confess... I shopped at express 3 times this week.
Buy one get one 50% off on shirts.
You can't beat that!!

*I confess... I have 3 fold out chairs, 2 coolers, 8 wine glasses
and a large pillow in my truck.
bad part.. It has all collected there.
NO, I don't camp.
Just tailgate!! :)

*I confess... I got shellac on my nails last week.
I pulled it off 3 days later.
That is what happens when I don't really like the color.

*I confess... I would go to Keeneland every weekend.
To not bet at all.
Just have a couple of drinks
and be absolutely content.
I love dressing up! 
Seeing all my friends!
Is that bad??

*I confess... sometimes when I'm out
with people I start to love them so much
I add them to my favorites on my phone?
(The next morning, I'm always like whatt?)
{How weird is that?}
Yes. I love Emojis #sorryImNotSorry

*I confess... I CAN't online shop.
I found these boots I LOVE on
went to the store, they didn't have them.
So they ordered them.
Which means, I am stalking FedEx every 20 min at work.
God help me!

*I confess... I need a good devotional book.
I do daily devotionals over email but
I want something more personal and tangible in my hand.

*I confess... it's the weekend.
I couldn't be more excited!!

Birthday Blog

Soo..  as you know from my last post. 
I am now officially 25.
Don't worry. I don't feel any different! 
Same ol' crazy me!! 
shenanigans and all!! 

I know I say this every year but I seriously think this was the
Birthday yet!! 
No. But. Really.

Not only did I celebrate for a WHOLE week.
but I saw everyone I love most!!
Let us start here.

September 28.
WhitBit and I decided to get our lives back together.
and frequent our local hang out.
Drakes. Which is like "Cheers" to us.
We have gotten to know servers, the DJ, the doormen, and most people who also frequent there often.
It FELT so good.
to let loose. and dance and laugh like old times!
{Her job took her away from me for awhile}

September 29.
I Got up and prepared for the tailgate my brother and his friends were throwing.
Whit and Kellie met at my house and we headed to Commonwealth.
There was a great turn out and it was so much fun!!
And of course, we went out afterwards!!

September 30
I got up and headed to my moms for my Birthday Lunch!!
She made my favorite meal!
We all ate and ended up taking a long nap!
Such a good time!!

October 2
My actual Birthday!!
I went to work and received all kinds of surprises!!
I was seriously so excited!!
All those beautiful flowers and a surprise birthday cake!!
After work I met a long time friend at Hooters
(yes, I'm even classy on my birthday)
and then went downtown for awhile!!

October 5
My friends came in town and I couldn't have been more excited to see them!!
we said we were going to "Lay Low" since the real celebration was Saturday.
BUTTTTT You know how that is. 
I wasn't even able to drive to dinner. :)
After dinner we almost went out, but ended up just going to Shamrocks.
Then had people back at my house.. till 4 AM. (Yikes)

October 6
For whatever reason I got up about 8:30 
and went and woke up Nat to talk to me.
After a couple more winks of sleep, I started getting ready about 10 AM.
Alex, Katie, Becca and I went to the club house for the day!
We had the best time!
I LOVE getting dressed up for Keeneland!!

We left Keeneland about 4:45 
Dinner was at 6:30 and we had to do a wardrobe change!! :) 
I think the ride from Keeneland to Becca's and then my house was my favorite.
We literally had a dancing PARRTTYYY!!
It was hilarious!!
We had dinner at Sal's 
and then headed to Parlay!!
I literally got the BEST table in there with my reservation
because I was right by the stage and high enough I could see everyone in there. (Thanks Elizabeth!!)
Jordan English was playing and I LOVE LOVE LOVE him!!

Then here comes Elizabeth to distract me from the bar.
She acts like it was an emergency and needed me right then.
I hurry over to see what she had to talk about 
and look who was sitting at my table!!

Yepp! My daddy and step mom!!
I literally screamed "DADDDYY??"
haha. To funny!!
I was soo excited they were there.
We continued the night away dancing and having the best time!!
All my girls dancing with Daddy O

October 7
I yet again woke up at 7:45 AM
So I went and got the girls breakfast!!
Then, I headed to Keeneland with the family.
We had reservations in the Stakes room and it was so nice!!
I love Keeneland!!
We had a great day laughing, fighting my hangover and daddy winning some money!! 

I told you!! 
It was literally the BEST. BIRTHDAY. EVER.
I should have taken way more pics than I did but..
I had like 18 people at my dinner.
I had a large group out to Parlay that night!
It was seriously my favorite!!
Thank YOU so much for all the wishes, fun, and drinks!
I guess I have to go back to reality now!! :(
