What's a chiffarobe?

It's date and mate time!  Now go to your chiffarobe!

What if you are going out to dinner?  If he takes you to Subway....honey, you shouldn't have answered the dang door.  (I had a boy take me to Subway one time....not good.)

I'm strangely into wearing mens clothes right now--the plaid shirt was my Dad's in the 90's.  This look would be good if you are hitting up a less formal dining place such as Cafe Rio or Zupas.  Are those outside of Utah?
Shirt: Dad's From 90's, Jacket: J.Crew, Riding Pants: J.Crew, Boots: China

This look would be for a nicer dining place.  Macaroni Grill?  Ahhh...I'm salivating.  
Turtleneck and Jeans: Banana Republic, Sweater: J.Crew, Scarf: Egypt, Boots: BCBG via Nordstrom

Next Date:
What if you go to a concert?

Obviously you wouldn't sit like this at a concert, but I think the get up is nice enough for the symphony.
Blouse: J.Crew, Skirt: Anthropologie, Shoes: Vera Wang via Kohls

He got tickets to Justin Bieber?  (haha jk)  This is what you should wear.  It's still edgy but making a statement. 
Poncho: Anthropologie, Cords: Thrifted, Shoes: Nordstrom, Scarf: H&M

Next Date:

Bowling!  Haha...hey now, I had a friend meet her one true love on a blind date bowling.  Give the pins a chance!

This outfit would be perfect because it's still stylin' but you can easily move your arms to roll that ball.
Blouse: J.Crew, Sweater: Madewell, Jacket: H&M, Jeans: Banana Republic, Socks: J.Crew, Boots: China

Last Date:  Picnic with a game of Frisbee after.  I actually wore this outfit for this described date. NBD.
It was great because I had this light jacket on, and I took it off when we played frisbee.  Obviously, this is more a warm weathered outfit for all you people outside of freezing Utah.  
Blouse, Shirt, Jacket: J.Crew, Pants: Banana Republic, Shoes: Kohls

Thanks for reading and come see me at or go to my photographers blog at

No Coal for me, Please!


Each picture deserves an explanation so I'm starting from Left to Right with each Row

1. My computer is falling apart.  Enough said.  

2. Ever since Kate Middleton sported Essie at her royal nuptials, I've wanted to be just like her.

3. I RARELY abbreviate things, but seriously, these are totes adorbs. 

4. Honestly, I really don't feel guilty for wanting laser hair removal.  
Coming from one who abhors shaving, I think it's a bloody miracle it was even invented.  

5. The Holy Grail of all watches before my eyes and within my grasp!

6. My family has a "thing" for dinnerware.

7. I had a pair of these when I was 7....why didn't I keep them?

8. The tempurpedic pillow = best dreams ever = George Clooney and I on a yacht in St. Lucia. 

9. I just think this crochet sweater is adorable.  

What are you asking Santa for Christmas?

Fashion Bloggers aren't Perfect ya know....Surprise.

Robe: Heaven knows where...., Adidas High Tops: Ross 

I slept in an hour past the time I set my alarm for.  Yes, I did push snooze six times.

Therefore, Meg did not have enough time to put together her Christmas Wish list this morning for you all.


Meg realized she forgot some things in her car, and went out to get them in THIS one of a kind get up.

Who does Meg think she is?

As Meg was walking back with her basket of goods, a boy on a bike yelled, "Nice Robe."

Meg instantly thought of that part in the movie 'A Walk to Remember' where the cool kids say to Jamie Sullivan, "Nice Sweater," and she sheepishly says thank you back.

Is Meg sheepish, though?


No way Jose.  Meg first laughed, and then yelled, "Dang Straight!"

I love when I talk in third person.

Hallelujah! Amennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!

Blouse: J.Crew, Necklace: Cherry Lane Boutique, Earrings: Heirloom from the Grammy, Skirt: THA-RIFTED!!!, Belt: J.Crew, Tights: Target, Shoes: Michael Kors via Nordstrom

My Thanksgiving was UH-mazin.  I stuffed my face.  I put up X-mas lights.  I decorated my tree.  Best of all, my family went to the Messiah sing in last night.  

If any of you are unfamiliar with the Messiah Sing here. 

The last song the chorus sings is just a big long mess of "Amens...."  about 10 pages of them.  Hence the title for my blog post.  

I love going every year, though.  It's a long standing tradition in my family, and it kick starts the holidays.  BOO-YA.

Get ready for tomorrow as I post my Christmas wish list.  

I wrote Santa this year.  I told him I was extra good, and that I DESERVE that Tempur-Pedic pillow.

Thank you SOOO much, Pilgrims.


Clockwise left to right on each row: Our Thanksgiving Table, The parentals before our Turkey Trot, The whole gang before our annual Turkey Trot (yours truly is in the brightest outfit...classic), my niece and nephew, Jacob and Lydia, post Turkey Trot triumphantly raising our sports drinks, kids coloring Thanksgiving placemats, my stylish cheerleader niece, gravy on the kitchen loveseat (story to come later), yours truly, my festive plate, my cute sista, my cute shoes (THANKS Mrs. Metcalf), Representation of everyone after our feast, me with the cute cute scarf my friend Christina made me, my daddy putting up our tree.  

Our Thanksgiving was everything but boring.  Lots of Turkey Trotting, lots of food, and lots of gravy spilled on our kitchen love seat.

My mom was carrying the gravy, and the cord from the crock pot caught on the edge of the loveseat.  Slow-mo, everyone is racing to prevent the gravy from spilling.  Not a chance.  It seems like a pound of gravy spilled everywhere, including all over my moms pants, the walls, and the kitchen love seat.  

My grandpa didn't seem to notice, and instead, was repeatedly saying, "Is there a spoon for this gravy?"

Bless him.

Despite the mess, we managed to say what we were grateful for.  Here are some of the things that were said:

Lydia: "I like Jesus!"
Colin: "I'm grateful for Tables and Chairs."
Ellie: "I love Justin Bieber."

Mom:  "I'm grateful for the Lord...His time, and His way.  The Lord is rarely early, but never late."
Grandpa: "I am convinced we are all very blessed."

I couldn't agree more with my family.  I loved every minute of today, and I hope you did as well.

Pinterest Love Affair

If I'm her age and can still do this....I'll be sitting pretty.  Look at her Forearm!  It's bulging. 

Every single woman should have this....except I would prefer a full body one rather than a half.  Probably more expensive I dare say....

My friends always end up with the Cuter ones..... 

Cutest Dog I have ever seen.  Hands down. 

Turd is my new favorite word.  It's so under appreciated.  

If you haven't discovered Pinterest,  you must do so!  You can follow me here.  It is sincerely addictive and ridiculously satisfying to click "Pin It" all the time.  

These are just a few of the funny funnies I have been pinning lately, and by now, you must know that I have kind of a strange quirky personality.

Oh you didn't get that from yesterdays post?  (Chewbacca)   

In about a half hour, I'm leaving for home to have a grand feast tomorrow.  May your day be filled with Tryptophan.....

aaaaaand in case you were wondering what the heck Tryptophan is, check it out here.  

Look for pictures tomorrow of my family feast.  So fun.

Toolshed Tuesday--um. Are you checking her out?

Jacket: THA-RIFTED!!! (D.I.), White Blouse: J.Crew, Blue Sailor Shirt: Anthropologie, Khakis: Target, Boots: Anthropologie

I had just gotten out of a relationship so I was pretty umm.....vulnerable?  I hate that word.  
It makes me feel "like a dog walking on its hind legs." (I'll give you a dollar if you can name the movie where that came from.)

Anyway, a boy asked me on a date to a comedy show.  I kind of felt awkward in my own skin because I had been with this other boy for so long, that I didn't know how to act around a new I the only one who feels this way?

Jumping into dating after a relationship is never really a great idea for me....I do weird trying to imitate Chewbacca on a date.....I thought guys liked that.  

Back to this date.  

Me =Vulnerable = Awkward = Bad Date.

We are standing in line to get into the show, and he is the type of guy who never makes eye contact with you when he's talking to you....drove me NUTS.  So on top of being awkward, I'm swerving my body around like a female Jack Sparrow with less eyeliner to make eye contact.  

At one point he says, "So what are you majoring in again?" (he had asked me twice before during dinner)  

As he asked this, I managed to actually see what he was looking at.  I turned my head in the direction where his eyes were to see him checking out a big bedonkadonked, blonde haired lady friend who may or may not have looked like Pam Anderson's sister in the 90's.

"What!  My hair isn't big enough for you?"  (Thought I)

I went and bought a bump it the next day.....k I'm totally kidding.  

After that date, I didn't go another date for a while.  I wasn't ready for shifty eyes......NO ONE should be ready for shifty eyes...

Oh my Crud...That was Rad day!

ummm.  I tend to how you say....groove during our photoshoots sometimes.

Skirt:  THA-rifted!!! (D.I.- seriously I remember when I found this I whispered to myself in the store, "Jackpot." Cardigan: Anthropologie, Scarf: Unknown, Shirt: H&M, Hat: Cherry Lane Boutique (Provo), Shoes: Vintage (purchased in Jackson Hole)

I hope my friend won't kill me for telling this story, but it is LITERALLY one of the best dating stories I have ever heard.  It holds a special place in our hearts because it happened in our first semester of college.  

If you have ever seen the movie Ghost with Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze, you'll get this story.  If you haven't....GO BUY IT.  
I got my copy for 5 dollars at Wal-mart.  Cha-ching. 
and needless to say...I think we watched the movie after her date with good laughs.  

A boy took her on a date that she had met in one of her classes.  His name was Mia.  Interesting name.  

The date was going well...she thought.  Then he took her home and into his basement where he had set up a POTTERY MAKING STATION.  Is the Ghost thing clicking yet?

Cue in the song "Unchained Melody" by the Righteous Brothers.  He had a stereo set up in the corner.

She is feeling pretty uncomfortable at this point and can only laugh at the awkwardness of the sitch.
He tells her to sit down.  She obeys, heaven forbid.
He sits behind her and puts his hands over hers as they begin to mold the clay together -- he's whispering sweet nothings in her ear????  Was she chucking like a small child on ipecac at this point?  I really don't know actually--I might have
(sidenote):  But unless he can move his hips like Pat Swayze in his tight dirty dancing pants...don't become a hot mess with another girl and the pottery wheel poser man. 

I wasn't at the I always hear it second hand. (Ya...this is our go-to hilarious date story.)

But I recall saying to her,  Ahh Danielle!  Give him a chance! (I was young. hahaha)

She was like, "um Meg...he tried to re-enact ghost and get up in my grill. No FREAKING WAY."

The best part of the story is that he came a couple days later he came by our apartment to drop off their bowl they made...which may or may not have looked like a blind demi moore with no fingers (sorry'll find another guy!)  had made it.  She looked through the peep hole and freaked out.  She asked me to do the dirty work as she pretended to be asleep in her bed. 

I answered the door and the first thing I thought was, "What's D's problem?  He's kinda cute."


If you have any great stories to me!
