The Week Begins!

by Meghann on November 15, 2010

Happy Monday everyone!

Happy sleep in and go for extra long walk day, Maddie!


She was thrilled, can’t you tell. 😉

Awww… Mondays – you are made only slightly more tolerable thanks to my ability to sleep in each Monday morning.

Another weekend has ended and another work week begins, but this week is going to be a good one. I have a couple of ‘friend dates’ planned as well as Harry Potter seven and my little brother’s 21st birthday. This week is going to be good!

It started off good too with an extra 30 minutes of sleep and a big bowl of cereal to get me going.


  • 1/2 cup Kashi Go Lean < — apparently my twin bro wasn’t a fan of yesterday morning?
  • 1/2 cup Cinnamon Crunch
  • 1/4 cup Frog Hollow Granola
  • Plain Yogurt
  • Pear
  • Vanilla Almond Butter



Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

This is a little belated,  but Saturday was my parents’ 28th wedding anniversary.

They were just kids when they wed in 1982 (my mom barely 18 and my dad 19), but 28 years later they’re still going strong.

Sure they’re mushiness and lovey doviness can be a bit embarrassing sometimes, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

LOVE YOU MOM & DAD! Here’s to 28 more years of blissful marriage!! 🙂

Want to see what my Sister and I look like in our Mom’s wedding dress? Check this post out!

Cute pic of you girls in your mom’s dress.

My mom eloped so she never had a wedding dress for me to try on.

I wonder how I’d look in my mothers wedding dress — I am at the height-weight-and AGE she was when she got married right now.


Congrats to your parents (my celebrated their 30th last month!)

My daughter just saw HP7 and she said: “It was great! It’s officially no longer a kids movie though.”

Happy Anniversary to your mom and dad. They obviously are true soul mates!

25 Holly November 15, 2010 at 1:43 pm

Happy Monday indeed–it’s that “monday after a race” day for me (ran San Antonio Rock n Roll 1/2 yesterday)…trying to get my head in the game @ work, but just want to go over the details of the race and how to prep for my next one! 🙂
Happy Anniversary to your parents!

That extra half hour makes such a difference! It feels silly, but so good.

Congrats on your parents! My mom had a similar wedding dress around that same time, sleeves and all 🙂
