weekend update. | THE KLACKNERS


weekend update.

-- i was busy every single night last week, which while it's nice to have things to do, i felt completely overwhelmed all week long. i couldn't get a lot of the things done that i needed to! also, i am so very ready for a vacation. good thing i only have to wait until june!

-- i babysat my favorite kiddos on wednesday and friday. i've been their babysitter since they were little babies...e was 14 months, and c came along just a few months later. so i've known him his whole life! they are 6 and 7 now and i can't believe how time has flown. we play hide and seek, pretend we are secret spies, watch disney movies, sing songs, have tickle fights, take crazy face pictures, and just have a lot of fun in general. i think kids are the best...they say the funniest things.

-- one of my core group girls, emma, was accepted into medical school!!!! we are all so excited for her as she's been waiting for this for a long time. she's starting in july, and although we are sad to see her go, we are so very excited she gets to move on and start this next part of her journey. good luck, future dr. hall!

-- beth, samantha, and i all purchased the blog life e-course from a beautiful mess and decided that we should do a little study group together as we work our way through it! we got google chat up and running so we could all hang out together! samantha was so good and had all of her homework done, but beth and i did not, so we talked about a lot of other things and got to know each other a little better. it was so fun, and i'm excited to have a couple friends to go through this course with me!

-- this interactive map of chattanooga is pretty cool!
-- disney is making a live action version of cinderella!
-- love coffee dates? check out this link-up.
-- speaking of link-ups, here are some really great tips for starting/hosting one!
-- um, i want to paint all balloons gold now.

-- i lose my accent a little when i've been out of the south for a while. don't worry, fellow southerners, it never completely goes away. i just get a little less drawly. the best friend's hubs always says, "megan, your accent is so much worse when you've been in tennessee for a long time." haha!
-- i have one sibling, a brother, and he is only 14 months older than me.
-- i was a competitive swimmer for 10 years, and i still miss it.

Loving Blog Life! And such a great idea to chat with someone about it! It's definitely making me want to make some changes, but I'm trying to hold out til I finish it so I don't constantly change things up on the blog... I have a tendency to do that. Ha! Hope you get some rest soon!

I love the Blog life course too, just like the ladies below. It's so good. I've done a Google hangout with some friends and it's been nice getting and giving feedback in regards to making concrete changes. It's awesome. What a game-changer it will be for a lot of us!! That's nice that your brother and you are so close in age! I wish I had a sibling close to me :)

Great to catch up with you, Meg! ~Jenna

girl i know what you mean about having a full schedule. there is just something about NOT having something going on every night during the week!
uh love the blog e-course idea with the study group! kiki and i were talking about something similar!

can i also say (we've chatted about this before) but i miss competitive swimming too. i haven't done REAL laps in years and i miss it (hoping to change that this summer!)

Elizabeth Mayberry said...

thanks for throwing me under the bus with you ;)

I'll do all my homework next time!

Also, I hear you on those busy weeks! #metoo

Every time I go home, someone mentions how "funny" I sound because my accent is less than it used to be, so I can totally relate!

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

Omgosh! I didn't know about the Cinderella movie yet! I'm so excited! Also not having the homework done made it way fun! Lots of talking about everything!

Lorraine Yeung said...

Oooh!! You started the Blog Life e-course too!
I'm in lesson two and the moment but still thinking over lesson one and all the things I enjoy. Was actually really surprised by what came out of the exercise!

Megan McIlvaine said...

haha yes! i totally understand. i'm only a few lessons in and want to do a re-haul of my blog, but i'm going to wait until i finish the course completely :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

i know!! it was so worth the purchase, i think!

Megan McIlvaine said...

yes, loved doing google hangouts! it's so fun having friends in blog world to bounce ideas off of and to brainstorm together!

Megan McIlvaine said...

y'all should definitely do it! it's so so so good.

um, i know. the thing is i don't want to pay for a gym membership right now to have access to a pool. currently, if it's not a workout i can do at home, it's not happening. ;)

Megan McIlvaine said...

hahaha. sorry. ;) gotta keep it real.

Megan McIlvaine said...

haha yes! glad i'm not alone!

Megan McIlvaine said...

eeeep! right? i can't wait for another trailer to come out!
can't wait for another hangout!

Megan McIlvaine said...

i felt like i could have stayed on lesson one forever and just kept making my list longer and longer! i'm on lesson 4 i i think now. i'm just slowly going through it as i have time!

Lacey Jones said...

Haven't heard about the new Cinderella movie! That was my favorite princes growing up so I will definitely be watching that! Also, I love your blog! So so cute.
