    My Dad always had roast beef sandwiches on onion rolls, that brings back memories. I haven’t had one in years though!
    Congrats to Mama Pea!

    I am an onion roll lover too. Back in the day, my mom would make turkey melts with onions and mushrooms on onions rolls. So yummy!

    Mama’s Pea getting a book deal is awesome – she totally deserves it.

    Mama Pea is one of my favorites as well! I always smile when I read her blog. Can’t wait for the book!!!

    You are pretty awesome yourself Meghann! You inspire me to work on my running. Who knows maybe I’ll be an ultra-marathoner one day too?

    That letter is too cute! It’s weird to think that all food bloggers were new and looking up to others at some point, as amazing as they are now

    I agree πŸ™‚ LOVE Mama Pea and the whole Pea family!

    People actually market their blogs besides just blogging? I had no clue.

    How cool that you were one of the people she reached out to before she started blogging. Friendships form the best ways! πŸ˜€

    Wow, so you can say “I knew her when…”

    This reminds me, you never answered my question during your Ask Me Anything. Are you jealous of the your other blogger “colleagues” who keep getting book deals left and right? And, if jealous, how do you best handle those feelings, since these girls are your friends? What are your future goals for your blog- do you hope to get a book deal?

      I say the more power to them! I’ve tried to sit down and write a book proposal a couple of times, but I couldn’t think of what to write of! Maybe one day when I have some free time i’ll [iece something together, but for right now I’m happy blogging just the way I am πŸ™‚

    Hi Meghan! So glad you liked the Quaker bars!!

    I love the pictures of lunch at your desk – I just had the exact same experience! Haha. Oddly, I don’t mind it. It gives me time to tinker on the computer if I need to do any non-work stuff.

    Onion rolls were always a treat to me too.

    And that email is so sweet. I love hearing how other bloggers interact.

    Have you ever felt like you have an unhealthy fixation on food?

    OMG that burger looks delicious! I love eating roasted veggies too. Very delicious and so much healthier than going out to eat at a local fast food joint.

    i honestly think you have the best attitude of any blogger! you never seem defensive or annoyed or catty, and i love reading your blog because you always have a great tone and you seem to really enjoy it. also i think this has been mentioned before, but i think its awesome that you blog so thoroughly and with great topics, even when it’s clear that you have a crazy work schedule. keep it up!

    That is so awesome! And you’ll be happy to know that I started reading Mama Pea’s blog because you referred to it for recipes! I have been reading your blog for…I don’t know, way over a year now, but I just started reading hers a month or two a go and I love it!

    Okay Meghann, when are you going to write a book??? It seems to be the blog world thing to do these days and you definitely have a talent all your own!

    Thanks for replying about the book question! I think your readers (or, just me) would love to read your journey to health “before the blog” since you started blogging once you were already successful with weight loss and fitness- and have only gotten more so. You are an inspiration!

    I actually found YOU through Mama Pea. She has been a good friend since we found each other through a completely different website when we were both pregnant, our kids are a week apart. Your post to her was so sweet Meghann, and you’re right, she’s well deserving of everything she’s doing. She’s smart, funny, and she works so hard and gives 110% to everything she puts her mind to. She’s uber-fabulous! Thanks for giving her props on your blog! I think you’re pretty fun too :), have a great time in San Fran. When are you going to marry that hunka hunka Derek anyway?
