keep calm and carry on by megan


Oh! I have just been so busy these past few weeks in between birthdays and babysitting and friends…I can’t take a break! But, I have been enjoying every bit of my business. Tomorrow is yet another birthday that must be celebrated: my dear sister, Lizzy, is turning 22 🙂 We are going to dinner and then downtown to the House of Blues for our favorite cover band…the Michael Jackson cover band that is: Who’s Bad. We saw them a few years ago and it was probably one of the best nights of my life…I had so much fun! So, needless to say I am really excited about tomorrow night…I love me some MJ.

I’ve also been shopping…loving Target and Etsy at the moment. I spent over 2 hours in Target yesterday. I got some goodies though that I can’t wait to wear…2 necklaces, a beautiful black cuff, and a pretty headband. And a gorgeous, huge black lacquer wall frame. Love. Oh, and as for Etsy…this is in my shopping cart right now.

{buy here}

I will let y’all know if I end up buying it! Happy Thursday!!


football friday by megan

happy friday!

This morning at the gym I watched Gilmore Girls and it made me very happy! I love that show…Lorelai’s way of thinking and living is just so wonderful to me. She and Rory are the epitome of mother/daughter best friends…and that makes me feel happy for some reason.

I am happy to report that the Chicken Orzo Salad with Goat Cheese I made last night for dinner was a winner!

IMG_7651It’s really pretty! I love the bursts of color from the grape tomatoes and the spinach. I used spinach instead of arugula and it turned out really delicious! Also, before I served it I topped each serving with goat cheese crumbles. My family loved this salad so I was a happy girl. I love to be in the kitchen…cooking, eating, whatever! Also, we ate this salad lukewarm. I don’t think it was meant to be hot. I am going to eat it cold today for lunch and see how it tastes at that temperature, too. Y’all should try this recipe! It’s very light and perfect for summer.

Tonight is the first Saints pre-season game! I am not much of a football gal, but I do love to support and cheer for my Saints!! I may not know the football lingo…but I do know when we make a touchdown! We are going to watch the game at my aunt & uncles house and celebrate my uncle’s birthday at the same time.

So with that being said my evening will consist of…salad, wine, pizza, birthday cake, football, and family. Who knows, there may be ice cream thrown in there too! Love.

I hope y’all all have a wonderful Friday!
