happy list|four

So I've missed the last couple weeks of these posts because hello real life, but I'm back!

Music| Sometimes you just need to shut out the world around you and jam to whatever strikes your fancy. At the moment, my Pandora station is set to Holdin' Her by Chris Janson mixed with Boy and a Girl Thing by Mo Pitney.

Books| I am SO behind on my Goodreads challenge, but I've been devouring books like they're going out of style lately. #finally

Army Wives| Been rewatching this series for only the millionth time, it's my chosen method to wind down after work.  Love me some Claudia Joy & Michael Holden.

What's something that's making you happy this week? Let me know in the comments!

& that's all she wrote.

Laying it Out.

Crap's about to get really real in the post guys, you've been warned.

I feel like I've forgotten how to pray, how to connect with God. My mind understands how to do it, my heart seems to be under lock and key from Him which I know seems silly due to the fact that He's all knowing and He already knows my heart backwards and forwards, inside and out.  Emily from Ember Grey wrote a really great post that I just read today and it helped some, but I don't know how to get away from the feeling of being a Christian fraud to just knowing He loves me no matter what.  If you have any prayers you'd want to spare I'd appreciate it. Any advice as well would be welcome.

My work momma's been on my mind these last few days. She hasn't been at work since Friday, she was off Saturday but has called in since Sunday, I'm getting worried about her, it's not like her to be gone this long and I miss her. I don't want to harass her to make sure she's okay, but I don't want her thinking I'm ignoring her either, just wanting her to rest and be better.

I feel like lately, instead of being so quick to share what's on my mind in real life, I've become even more of an introvert even at work, where if I have something earth shattering to share, I'll do it, but I keep a lot more in, I think that's because my trust in certain people completely shattered a few weeks ago & I don't feel safe sharing certain things with certain people anymore. I'll be a completely open book, but you have to be willing to open me up and I have to have a good deal of trust built up with you.

I've been on a reading kick lately, Colleen Hoover's books have been my jam. I have every book she's written pretty sure on my Kindle app now and I'm just going through them like a camel drinks water.

So I was having a day a week or so ago, you know the kind of day I'm talking about, the one where it's like I really should need to have a license to adult.  Well I texted Jayme as well as another one of my friends and said y'know there are some days where I feel like I totally have this adulting thing down and then there are other days where I feel like I'm a giraffe just learning how to use it's legs.  So now whenever I'm having one of those days, my friend who also happens to work with me asks if I'm having a giraffe day. My life is never dull that's for sure.

I think I'm going to write more of these kinds of posts, I like just brain dumping. It's very therapeutic. Also not even sorry that there's no pictures in this post. I've been posting pictures from my Moondance weekend on my instagram @meghanannablogs #shamelessplug

Meghan out.

My Weekend Shenanigan.

That's not a typo, I didn't have very many shenanigans this weekend, if I'm honest, I only had one major shenanigan, but it made my weekend.

So I was walking home from my lunch with Karen and I hadn't even made it out of the parking lot before I hear someone honking at me, I look back and it's my Grandpa's old pick-up truck. I start walking toward it as this kid below opens the door and shoves me in yelling "GET IN! NOW!" "I'm like all right all right, I'm going!!" My Grandpa's behind the wheel laughing his head off and all I can do is shake my head.  I looked at my brother and said "Y'know, if they didn't know we were family, people would think you were kidnapping me." "GOOD! That's how I wanted it to look" he says to me which my Grandpa responds with "Nobody came out to check and see if you were okay, isn't that sad?" & continued laughing.  Not even sorry, because even when they're kidnapping and embarrassing me, I love my people :)

& literally, the rest of Friday was spent reading and taking a nice nap, Saturday was much of the same before I was back to work Sunday, I have a short work week since I'm heading up north for Moondance Country Jam again!

Hey it's Okay..

I haven't linked up with Amber in far too long, but I absolutely love this link-up, so here we go!

It's okay...

-to commit to read books I already own, but go out and buy four new books #whoops

-to really be looking forward to tomorrow because then inventory will be over for another year at work.

-to spend my bonus on treating myself. I got a hair cut, brows done and I got a pedicure as well.

-to think you forgot your iPad at your aunt's house up north, but find it under a couch cushion because you were on it before falling asleep the night your mom stayed at your place.  Oy.

What I'm For.

"You don't have to guess what I'm against, if you know what I'm for" What I'm For- Pat Green.

This song came up on my Pandora this morning and I thought awesome blog post idea!

I'm for weekends spent Up North hanging out with my aunt, uncle and cousins.

I'm for Monday mornings spent watching a rain delayed race at Pocono.

I'm for hugs and lunch dates with my work momma after a week of not seeing her.

I'm for rainy days and awesome clouds.

I'm for sunny afternoons and flip flops.

I'm for puppy cuddles and crazy excitement when I come home.

What's something you're for?
