Life is Good

Ahhh!!! I've missed ya'll so much!
First off, let me get this out there so you know why i have been a little MIA. My Daddy was diagnosed with throat cancer a few weeks back and this week is his first chemo week. Needless to say I have been distracted, but everything is going well! He's such a superhero!

Despite these crazy little bumps in the road. Life is too sweet not to focus on the good things. So, let's catch up shall we? Here's what makes me heart so happy and I've been dying to share...

1) I'm in love.

- Yes, I know I have been dating BF for almost 2 years, but I fall a little more in love everyday... *sigh* I feel so blessed to have someone love me so unconditionally, despite my craziness and emotional breakdowns. I couldn't be more thankful to have someone hold my hand through life's hard times, and celebrate the good ones.

2) Brother is HERE!

- My little broski moved to the big KC yesterday so that he could hang with his sister (or work his first awesome big boy job?!)! Couldn't be more excited to have one of my very favorite people doing life with me here in the big city!

{Sibling Love - Christmas 2010}

3) Livestrong Sporting Park opens tonight!
- I've grown up a complete soccer fanatic, so I was definitely all in when BF, Brother, and a close friend decided that we should get season tickets. The brand new multi-million dollar stadium opens tonight and we can't wait to enjoy tailgating and the first game!

4) This weekend = R-e-l-a-x-a-t-i-o-n!

- Although I am working one of our fundraising events on Friday, I'm looking for a mini date night afterwards. BF is leaving for bachelor weekend, so it will be fun to catch up before he heads out! Saturday is a community volunteering project, followed by some pool time, and Sunday is a girl date with my sweet friend Erin! Bring it on.

5) My Dad = Superhero

- Seriously, this man is awesome. It's the last day of chemo this week and now he gets to rest and recover! Hang in there, Daddio! You're doing SO great! :)

5) Despite the curve balls, life is so so good.

- I'm very thankful to have such supportive friends and family! I've received gorgeous surprise bouquets of flowers just letting me know people are thinking of me and praying for my sweet Daddy. The heart of life is good, so I have to keep striving towards optimism!

Here's my little life theme song. If I was in a movie, I would want this to be the culminating movie moment movie song. Completely love it.

.:: Missed you to pieces! ::.

Tell me what's going on with you? Excited about life?


  1. Wow, you've been going through a lot it seems! But your post is so cheerful, it's encouraging to see that :) Have a GREAT day!

  2. That is my theme song too! :)

    Praying for your Dad!! If his outlook is anything like yours I have NO doubt he is going to be just fine!!

    Last night the dude and I were talking about how even though we're both broke and have a lot of uncertainty right now we are both happier than ever. So yeah ... I guess I am pretty excited about life! I am in the best relationship I've ever had and am working on building my blog and spending more time doing healthy stuff like yoga, so I definitely feel very hopeful and positive lately!

  3. I missed you! I'm happy to hear you are well and so very happy!

  4. thinking of you and your family!!! i hope everything goes well and your dad gets better soon. have a fun time hanging out with your brother :) missed you lady! xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  5. Wow Meg - Your spirit is so uplifting. You just reminded me that no matter what curve balls God throws at me, how important it is to have an upbeat attitude and positive perspective on life. I will keep your father and family in my prayers. Stay strong pretty girl xoxo

    Megs Pegs... I shall be praying for your family and for your dad's condition. What an overwhelming ordeal, but it is no surprise that you swing back with joyful enthusiasm. You always do. This week has been full of funness, and I think it'll continue throughout the weekend. Little recap: anniversary w/ hubs, Mumford & Sons concert, my friend is falling in like with a guy which is so fun to watch, anniversary celebration tomorrow, maybe some flea market fun of Saturday.... oh the possibilities are endless!

  7. So I've been following your blog for a bit and honestly cannot remember if I've commented before or not. So if I have, apologies for not remembering and if I have not, then hooray for not having a lurker anymore :)

    Your dad is a superhero! Totally praying through this time of recovery for him and for your family. And falling more in love everyday is such a blessing and a gift. Makes me happy to read that for you. Enjoy the soccer game and the relaxing!! And please pop over and visit me at!

    Happy Thursday!

  8. HI
    I am so sorry to hear about your dad! I love that you call him a superhero because my sister was diagnosed with Leukemia a little over a month ago and we call her a Rockstar! I am glad he finished with chemo for now...where is his hospital? They told my sister to go to MD Anderson in Houston, TX and we are from SC so she is a long way from home! Let me know if you ever want to talk...I can relate to what you are going through!

  9. Hang in there with your Dad! You're right, you have so much to be thankful for! Not to mention all of your friends in the blogosphere!

  10. I love your positivity! That is just what your dad needs right now.

  11. So glad to hear that your daddy is doing well! My uncle got throat cancer last year, and he's doing just fine now. Your daddy is clearly a strong man!

  12. Meg! I'm so sorry to hear about your sweet daddy- I'll definitely keep him in my thoughts & prayers!! Glad he's doing well and you're right, he is a superhero!

  13. Positive energy is the best way to live life (or so I believe :)
    I am sure your dad will do fine after all you said his a superhero :)

  14. I'm glad your dad is doing better, and that you have family moving into town... gosh I would love to have my family live in the same city as me!

  15. Thanks for the positive post! Best wishes to your daddy.

  16. What a positive attitude! Thinking of you and your family and hoping your dad will be cancer free soon!

  17. Megan, I just love you - You're so positive and optimistic! I know your daddy is going to fight just as hard as your momma did and WILL beat this! Keep focusing on the positives and remember you're all being held in the palm of our Daddy's hand! :) xoxo!

  18. Oh, a dad having cancer is no fun at all!! I am glad his first week of treatment went well. My dad had brain cancer and now I'm caring for my grandpa with leukemia. I feel I can say "I've been there." If you want to talk, you can find me at my blog. I'm available for you.

  19. I love how positive you are, always. It's inspiring! :) I'm praying for your sweet Daddy!

  20. I am so sorry to hear about your Dad's diagnosis. Brad and I were just talking about how your such a strong and positive person!! You are my idol! We will be praying for your family!

  21. Hey lovely lady, so sorry to here about your daddy's cancer, but it's amazing that he is hanging in there and being a superhero. I will be lifting him, and your family, up in prayer for a quick treatment plan, and the strength of will and body to get through it. I am super excited for all of the wonderful things that are going on in your life right now too, enjoy them to the max, you deserve it! Love ya girly!

  22. That is such a lovely song, I've not heard it before but I'm off to itunes to download it now!

    Dear Megan,

    I am so sorry to know what you and your family--especially your dad--have been having to go through. But I know, seeing your joy even in facing difficulties and challenges in life, that you are going to get through this. You are not somebody who is going to be in despair and give up.

    And I am touched by what you have shared.
    Touched by you and your beloved ones.

    I will keep you and your beloved ones in my prayers tonight.


  25. You and your family are in my prayers!...........kt
