Behind the Blog: 25 Things

1 | I am OBSESSED with Law & Order SVU.  Mariska Hargitay (aka Olivia Benson) is my hero.
2 | I got my Cosmetology license in high school and was a hairdresser for 4 years after.  After making a career change to business administration, my family still jokes that I'm a beauty school dropout.
3 | I only lived in one house my entire life, until John and I were married.
4 | I am 100% scared of the dark.  (i.e. - I've seen one too many Law & Order episodes)
5 | I am crazy OCD about my favorite accessories.  Everything has a place, stays in a dust bag and never touches the floor.
6 | I'm a visual learner.  I have to see it to understand it.
7 | I HATE when people watch me open gifts.  Most of the time, I cannot control my facial expressions. :/
8 | Appetizers + dips are my favorite thing to eat.  Sometimes that's all I order.
9 | John and I got married in the same church my parents did, 29 years later.
10 | I've never been stung by a bee and I'm terrified of them.
11 | My celeb crush is Ryan Reynolds.
12 | I relax by binge-watching a TV show.  My latest obsession - Grey's Anatomy.
13 | My favorite Hollywood couple is Bill & Giuliana Rancic.
14 | My biggest pet peeve is being late - it gives me major anxiety.
15 | My favorite night of the year is Christmas Eve.  There's just something so magical about it.
16 | My most memorable moment as a blogger so far is being invited to The White House for July 4th weekend.
17 | My favorite show growing up was Saved by the Bell.  I wanted to be Kelly Kapowski SO badly.
18 | I love flying at night.
19 | I light candles in our home every morning when I wake up - right after pouring a cup of coffee.
20 | I'm obsessed with buying dishes.  Everything from glasses to cake plates - I always go overboard.
21 | Most people only drink champagne to celebrate something or with dessert, but I prefer it throughout my entire meal.
22 | My favorite female celebs are: Reba McEntire, Kerry Washington, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sophia Bush & Reese Witherspoon.
23 | I am obsessed with interior design.  
24 | My favorite guilty pleasure is Sea Salt Cameral ice cream + the Kardashians.
25 | Being an aunt is one of my favorite roles in life.

Just a little behind the blog fun for today!  With all of this crazy rain we've been getting lately, it's so hard to shoot outfits so I thought I'd switch things up a little!  I always like to read random things about people - it somehow makes them more relatable and down to earth.  If you'd like, I'd love for you guys to leave me a comment below with 3 things that people may not know about you!  I'll share some of the best/funniest ones on my snapchat later today!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.

P.S. - The outfit details from the photo above are in this blog post!


  1. 1| I'm mad that I'm awake right now
    2| I'm not a morning person
    3| I'm still mad that I'm awake

  2. I love reading posts like these and getting to know the blogger more. Grey's Anatomy is the best, I have been watching it for years and years and it's still one of my favourites! The Good Wife is also a really good show, and about law. Flying at night is the best, except the airport shops are usually closed

  3. I loved learning all these little deets about you! and i love that you are like me in that we like to relax by binging on tv shows haha!

  4. Appetizers + flying at night+ Christmas eve are three of the best things in the world, no doubt! My friends and I used to fight over being Kelly Kapowski in all our made-up games:) I'm a closet Lord of the Rings fan, I'm trying to train myself to drink coffee black, and I'd eat french fries with every meal if I could! :)

  5. Very nice list! I love reading thise kind of lists, too. Here's three things about me...
    1) I love cold, cloudy days (if there's rain or snow it's even better)
    2) I get impatient with people who are not organized or always late
    3) I have a huge soft spot in my heart for senior folks - they are so sweet and fun to talk to

  6. Loved reading these :) That is just too awesome you got to visit the White House on July 4th!

    xo, Shelby

  8. What a fun post, Megan! I don't comment much, but always like your IG pics and pin your outfits, but this post brought me to commenting. I'm TOTALLY with you on #7! I loathe it! It's like, "Let's have continue to have fun now, I'll open presents later and will send you a thank you card while I'm at it!"

    I did a similar post for my 30th birthday too! I think you'd find #8 pretty funny, ha!

    P.S. Andrea's comment above is HILARIOUS, hahahaha!

  9. I enjoyed your post today! I love reading these types of lists. Here are a few things you probably don't know about me: I love to decorate cakes. I've made two grooms cakes for my friends weddings and loved every minute of it. Potatoes are my favorite food. I'm like the bubba gump of potatoes, baked, broiled, boiled, grilled, mashed, au gratin, you name it, they are delicious. My favorite celeb crush is Tom Brokaw. I was heart broken when he retired. :(

  10. Loved reading more about you Megan! You seldom share anything personal here and now I can relate to you more!
    Three things:
    I am juggling my medical practice, blog, motherhood and household.
    My fantasy is to buy a yacht
    I am the personal shopper for every member of my family and friends!

  11. 1. I wish I was a morning person, but I'm not
    2. I like to order and eat my dessert first at dinner
    3. My chihuahua is my favorite person in this whole world

    I love getting to know people better!! You are one of my favorite bloggers and one of my biggest inspirations! It was fun getting to know you more!

    Always with love,
    Sadie Lee

  12. I loved this post Megan, and I absolutely adore your blog. So fun to learn a little more about you!
    3 facts about me:
    1. My guilty pleasure TV show is the Big Bang Theory!
    2. I am obsessed with all things Southern (I'm originally from up North but I go to college in Charlotte and love it! :-) )
    3. It's my dream to continue to make my blog more of a professional outlet, and it would be amazing to someday go full-time!! Bloggers like you who have done that inspire me so much!

    xoxo A

  13. What a great post! It's always great getting to know a little about the personality behind the blog.

    1 - Mornings when I "can't find anything to wear", I'll turn on Gossip Girl for a little inspiration
    2 - I'm the same way with champagne! It's my drink of choice no matter what's on my plate.
    3 - My biggest pet peeve is people who "pop" or smack their gum. Drives me nuts! Ha!
