summer’s over by megan

Happy Monday! Well, summer’s over…for the South anyway. I am pretty sure all elementary schools, high schools, and universities are offically back in session after today. As for me, I do not start class until Wednesday! This is my last semester before student teaching in the spring and I am very anxious to see what God has in store! I love the beginning of each new school year…a fresh start! So, yes Wednesday is my first day back and I have yet to get my school supplies together. I have purchased them…I just need to transfer them from the Office Depot bag into a tote and fill the binders with paper. Oh, how I love school supplies! Since I only have 1 class and 1 lab this semester I did not need too many supplies…but I am happy with what I found, so I thought I would share them with you…

IMG_7772Yay! I am most excited about my Wilson Jones accordion folder and my multi-colored R.S.V.P. pens πŸ™‚ Oh, and I totally scored that Vera Bradley binder at TJ Maxx for 3 bucks. The same day I found my linea pelle bag…oh, it was a good shopping day! Indeed it was.

So far today I enjoyed spending some time with God this morning in Romans, ate some cereal and blueberries, went to the gym, went to the bank, went to get gas, and ate lunch. It has been a wonderful day so far. Not to mention it is absolutely gorgeous outside! I have been driving around with the windows doing that, I definitely don’t do it enough. I should be spending more time outside today enjoying this weather…I am thinking some reading is in line for this afternoon πŸ™‚ I started reading Julie & Julia last night and I can’t wait dive back into it!

Have a great day, y’all!


oh happy day by megan

Hello! I hope your Thursday has been going well. Mine certainly has!! I can’t wait to share it with y’all…

My mama and I spent the day together…shopping! It was so much fun. I scored some super stuff at the Gap like boyfriend jeans and a shrunken schoolboy blazer. Then we wandered into Ann Taylor Loft because my mom had things on hold for us. My mom is a sucker for all things Ann Taylor Loft. I can ocassionally find things I like in there, too.Β  And, today I did! I found a cute dress for fall (to wear with tights) to wear under this shawl neck sweater vest or this drapey sweater vest. My mama got some equally cute things as well. We’re gonna share the two sweaters…made us feel a little better about buying both, haha.Β  None of this was on sale…but I did find a great steal today that I could not pass up.


IMG_7630A linea pelle dylan bag. At TJ Maxx. I spotted it (I have an eye for this) and grabbed it. My heart was racing, I tell you! I was so excited I almost cried. The price was too good to pass up. Thank God for TJ Maxx.

IMG_7633Isn’t she pretty? It is a bit smaller than the huge Longchamp I am carrying now…but I will work it out!

I also scored an adorable cookbook at TJ Maxx


And I can’t wait to bake up batches of these triple chocolate muffins


and these griddle cake. Mmm. They remind me of the McGriddles at McDonalds. Does anyone else love those? I have not had one in years…


Well, I’m off to watch Gilmore Girls. Tonight I am finally going to see Harry Potter and I could not be more excited πŸ™‚

I hope y’all are having a gorgeous Thursday!
