Friday's Favorite Things

Since I haven't been blogging much lately (I have no excuse other than laziness), I thought I'd give myself a reason to blog. I'm going to write about my favorite things come Friday. So behold, my Friday's Favorite Things!

One, I'm obsessed with these shorts. I think the length is just right (did I just admit my age), oye.

These Lilly Pulitzer Buttercup Shorts scream Megan, don't they?! Available 00-14. And only $74! I can see them being a staple this summer.

Two, this necklace.

Be still my  heart.

This Primary Spheres Bib Necklace wants to find it's way to my jewelry box. Would it be weird if I received a Mother's Day gift from the cats? Probably. Sigh.

Lastly, I'm dying for a new bag. This Vince Camuto Grace Cross Body is dying to come home with me.

Sounds like a match made in heaven.

What are your favorite things at the moment?

The Big Wedding Invite

I love going to the movies! Seriously! I love the whole idea of sitting in the theater, eating popcorn, enjoying the show. My husband on the other hand, hates it. He'd much rather watch a movie at home, from the comfort of our couch, where he can pause, rewind, or stop whenever his heart desires. Clearly we have differing opinions.

If you love going to the movies and if you are especially excited to see The Big Wedding with Robert DeNiro, Katherine Heigl, Meryl (were on a first name basis) and Susan, then you are in luck!

Fantabulously Frugal shared an invite for two tickets for the price of one to go see it! LOVE!

I'm taking my bestie, how about you?

Thanks, Lisa!

Going Au Natural

I've had some events happen this past week that have put a lot into perspective such as my eating habits, caffeine consumption and lack of exercise. As traumatic of an event as it was, it was good to be able to re-evaluate my decisions and change for the better.

So, I've been going to the gym. Granted, I've gone twice so far, but it's a start. :)

I've given up caffeine. This by far has been the hardest. I never realized how much I adored coffee. Seriously. And I'm sure it's all mental, but I am having the hardest time waking up without a cup. I have to really train myself to realize that I can wake up and have energy without caffeine. I miss you coffee, I really do.

Sugar. This one has been hard. I'm actually watching my sugar intake and trying not to eat anything super sugary like I had before. Like, no sodas. Can I give it up 100%? No clue. I'm going to try, but ate a S'mores the other night, so I may start this tomorrow.

I'm really hoping to go all organic eventually, but for the mean time, I'm taking it step by step.

Eating crap is so much easier. Why is that?

Have you ever given up sugar and caffeine? Does it get easier? And do you feel a lot better?

Can you Crate Train a Cat?

I love my cat Raven. I really do. He's such a spitfire. But, I'll tell ya, he's also a jerk.

Tiger was the best cat in the world.  He was such a lover. You could practically do anything to him, squeeze him with all your might, pull his tail (not me, kids have done this) and he'd still be your BFF. I miss him tremendously. And Spaz is Spaz. Bless his heart.

However, with both Tiger and Spaz, I never had to worry about them eating or destroying my house. Cords could dangle. They didn't care. I could buy flowers and place them everywhere and they'd just stare at them, realize they weren't a juicy steak and then leave them alone.

Speaking of flowers, I love them. I want to display them in my house. Yet, Raven has decided that they are a part of his diet and has proceeded to eat everything in sight.

Case in point? My hydrangeas are now locked in my bathroom. Why? Because they contain cyanide and cyanide is bad. And another reason? Someone thinks they taste delish. Nom nom nom. Jerk.

He once at an azalea before I realized they too are poisonous. I didn't sleep that night, as I monitored his breathing, his digestion, etc. Needless to say he was a ok, I however, was exhausted. Again, jerk.

The hubby and I grew basil. Note the key word grew....
We also grew parsley. I'll tell ya, cats LOVE parsley. Who knew.

Oh, and his newest thing? Thyme. Ugh.

In an effort to be clever, C put red pepper flakes all over the parsley plant to "Raven proof it". Guess what? He loves red pepper flakes. Go figure.

Here's what we've had to do to save our plants....

Although now he's figured out how to pull it open.

So, my question is, can you crate train a cat?

We can try.

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In

I haven't done one of these for awhile for no reason other than I've been lazy. So, without further ado, I'm back to blogging (hopefully!) and what better way to get back into the swing of things to do a MilSpouse Friday Fill-In!

The questions are:

1. What’s one thing in the past month you would have changed?

Honestly, my attitude. I've been very negative this past month and need to start having a positive outlook!

2. What was your favorite thing that happened in March? 

We started our IVF! Big things were happening!

3. What are you looking forward to in April?

Finding out if the ET took! Fingers crossed! Oh, and warm weather. It's COLD.

4. What is your favorite thing about Spring?

The birds all come out. The flowers bloom. The sun shines. I love it! And I really love that I don't have to wear a jacket!

5. What is your ultimate guilty pleasure?

Anything sweet. (Said as I'm currently eating a bag of gummy bears.....)
