Christmas 2009

Hello Blogging World! I hope that you all had a very merry Christmas filled with love and laughter. I love the Christmas season because it reminds me how grateful I am to have such wonderful people in my life. I have been blessed with an amazing family and amazing friends. Although 2009 has been filled with many ups and downs, the joy I feel during this time of year certianly makes it all worth it :).

The Engaged Girl's Monogram Dilemma

I am sure that it comes as no surprise to you all that I am a sucker for anything with a personalized monogram. From compacts to dishtowels- you can never go wrong with a monogram. Some of my favorite go-to gifts include a monogram. Simple personalization can take any item from ordinary to extraordinary.

As I've been trolling through sites for Christmas gifts, I've stumbled upon a few items that I myself would love to have. I've realized that I am at such a strange place though-my current initials have an expiration date. There is no point in purchasing items with my current initials, but I am a personal believer that it is bad luck to purchase items with my new initials before they are my 'actual' initials. Not that I expect my relationship to go south or anything, but what a way to jinx a good thing right?

So what is a monogram-loving engaged girl to do??

Time to Hibernate

(This has been me every day this week-minus the feline)
Has anyone else's body started to go into hibernation mode? It has been alarmingly cold this week and this summer girl is not a fan. Getting out of bed in the morning might as well be termed 'Meghan's Daily Torture Routine'. I would give anything to snuggle in bed next to K all winter and wait for the thaw.
You would think that because I have lived here my whole life that the winter's brutality would feel like nothing at this point......WRONGO BONGO. Counting down the days until it is socially exceptable for me to turn into a 'snow bird'. Our neighbor across the hall is a fab snow bird and will be leaving for Florida two days after Christmas and returning to the seacoast in May. Ah, now that would be the life!
