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! 

Thanks for stoppin' by! 


  1. To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorites! I hope you like it as much as I do.

  2. I am so happy I had until July for my wedding! I was able to work out EXTRA hard the last month! I don't know what it is about being in crunch time, but it works! You can do it just stay focused!!!

  3. Bridesmaids is one of my favorite movies! I love ALL of the characters. Too funny. Yes, I was also waiting to blog on a Saturday night. Ha- two peas in a pod. ;)

  4. Your blog is SO cute! I love the layout.

    My little guy is only 4 months old, but he gets HANGRY on the regular. If he wants to eat and isn't given food immediately, he loses his mind. I think he's got a little bit of Momma in him in that respect. :)

    I'm a new follower- I found you through Farley's link up!

  5. What kind of name is Stove? Are you a kitchen appliance!
    Bridesmaids is such a good movie! Now you've made me feel like watching it. I am the queen of hangry. If I don't have time to eat I am cyclone Sheri haha. A girls gotta eat.
    I am checking out the Primary Pack now :)

  6. Thanks for sharing! I found you on the November Currently and I am so glad that I did! You have a cute blog! I wish it felt like fall! Here in Southern California- it is still in the 90s for at least 2 days a week…. Today was the first day it has rained since April… and it was a good, hard rain that lasted for 30 minutes…

  12. I was watching Bridesmaids last night too!!! It's soooooo good, and so on point! Good for you for trying to stay healthy… I know it's hard. Just remember what Roald Dahl said: "If you have good thoughts, they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely!" You will shine on your wedding day, Meg!
