December Currently!

Hey there! I'm here to link-up with Farley for her December Currently! Oh my...DECEMBER?!?! what?! For real?! My goodness...I can't believe it's December! 

Anyways...Let's get rollin' with this month's currently! 

Listening- My fiancĂ© came to spend the night with me since he has the day off tomorrow and he found "Dogs with Jobs" on Netflix.  It's making me want to save all the dogs and take them home! 

Loving- I love this time of year! Not because of the bone chilling cold, but because I get to buy gifts for people! If I had unlimited funds I would totally buy gifts for people on a day to day basis...ya know, like Oprah! Who doesn't want to be Oprah?!

Thinking- I am so very blessed.  I have an amazing man that I get to marry in June. I have a loving family that is always there for me. I have brilliant friends who are only a phone call away "just to chat" AND I have all of YOU! Yes, YOU guys! When I started this whole blog/creating journey I never thought I would "meet" so many amazing people....I really thought I would never find anyone who wanted to read what I had to say! I'm just some girl from Nebraska with a twisted sense of humor...who wants to read that?!...apparently you guys do (bless your souls) thank you for reading my blog, liking the millions of pictures I take of my dog on Instagram and giving me a boost of confidence when I need it. You all are truly a blessing! 

Wanting- To be healthy! This has multiple meanings for me right now. 1) I have recently come to the conclusion that "being skinny" doesn't mean that I am healthy.  This whole wedding diet really had me down in the dumps for awhile...and I was fearing I would never look the way I wanted to look in my wedding dress, but I've come to the conclusion that that isn't the case at all. If I take care of myself and eat healthy foods (that don't taste like cardboard) I can look awesome on my wedding day no matter what! I may not be SKINNY, but honey...I've got curves and I'm gonna rock 'em! 

2) It seems as though every break I have I end up getting this really gross mucus bomb of a cold. The past three days I have been talking like a man, coughing up large mucus balls (those really pretty green ones) and clearing the throat constantly like the old guy in the back of church on Sundays. I'm sounding really hot right now folks.  I still need to get my flu shot, but with my body fighting this mucus war right now I don't know if I should go get might take me down for the count ( I always feel a bit awful after I get my flu I the only one?)

Needing- Mucinex...I think you can figure out why I would be needing this right now! I won't paint any more snot filled pictures for you :) 

Giving- Some love! 

I want you to know (yes, you reading this post right now) that I am so very thankful for you! I am humbled to have you as a colleague in this glorious profession and I hope you know that you are loved. You make a difference each and every day ...even on those really bad are making a difference. So, in the upcoming weeks when you want to fight the alarm and burrow deeper into those warm sheets, remember that there are children in your school that need YOU. They need your warm hugs, your bright smile, your words of encouragement and someone in their life that they know will care for them. It will be hard, but you can do it! 

Phew...I hope that little pep talk helped! I have to remind myself of those things each and everyday...especially during the month of December...I have quite a few kiddos who lives get kind of rough around this time of year. 

Now...I also wanted to share this amazing song that I am obsessed with...enjoy a few minutes of pure bliss! 

ahhhhh....isn't that beautiful?! Oh, I could listen to it forever! 

Well, I hope you enjoyed your stop by my little ol' blog and I hope that you click that "follow this blog" button so you can keep coming by! I like having you here :) ...and not in a creepy in a  "oh, hey there friend I like your company" kind of way. 


I hope you have a great week! 

Thanks for stoppin' by!

November Currently!!

Hey there! I am here to link up, once again, with Farley for her November Currently!

Let's get rollin'! 

Listening- I have been watching Bridesmaids (i took over the TV after the Husker game) waiting to blog! Yes, I am lame…deal with it! I love this movie! There are so many wonderful quotes! 

Loving- OOO!! I am so excited to share this one! I have been asked to be apart of a brilliant collaborative blog with some amazing bloggers! When I first started blogging I dreamed of collaborating with other bloggers! It is truly a dream come true! I love where blogging has taken me! click the button below to check out this blog! 

I will be posting there on Monday and would love for you to help me out! Tweet @megboxofcrayons with #askmegan with any questions you would like me to answer, I will pick 10 and answer them in my post on The Primary Pack! 

Thinking- Well, it is a little hard to think with the loud grumbles coming from my stomach. Okay…so I am being a bit dramatic, but I am hungry…no, I'm HANGRY.  

My fiancĂ© works some weird hours and tonight we had planned to have a sushi date night! I love going on dates with him, but man, waiting until he gets off work sometimes can be very difficult. I have been snacking on almonds and grapes, ya know, the healthy stuff that goes with my wedding diet.  I can't wait for our sushi date…if you're lucky I'll even post some pictures later! 

Wanting- I feel like the leaves have changed and blown off the trees WAY too fast this year! Driving home from yoga today I didn't see any bright orange and red leaves anymore, instead I found sad, naked tree branches bending in the wind.  Naked trees make me sad…

Needing- To stick to my wedding diet. I have been doing a pretty good job of this, but it can be a real feat some days. I have thought about taping pictures of my wedding dress to my fridge, but I'm afraid it would backfire and I would eat everything in sight simply because there are those moments where you think you will never "look the way you want".  I'll keep on trucking and hopefully in this next month I will really nail it before my first fitting! 

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can! 

Reading- I have been working on reading one of my all time faves, "To Kill a Mockingbird". I have not made it very far, but I hope to have it finished before my wedding. That's a pretty lofty goal considering my wedding is in June. 

Well folks, that's all I have for ya! Stay tuned for my post on The Primary Pack on Monday! Don't forget to tweet me your questions! 

Have a wonderful weekend!
