So I used to have looooooong hair.  Looooooong beautiful hair.  

I had always wanted to do a "long bob," And then due to a few life changing events,  I decided life is too short and to go for it.  This is the shortest I've EVER had my hair (Even shorter in the back).

PS that's me and my boyfriend, country singer, Phil Vassar.  
Heh.  Excuse the goofy "mid-sentence face." 
Well- it was fun while it lasted, but I desperately miss my long hair, so I've been growing it out since.

Yesterday I got a haircut.  Not so much to cut length, but more so style.  It might be the BEST haircut I've ever gotten.  No joke.  Aaaaand, it was my first DUDE haircut.  I told him he better not screw up.

And baby!  He didn't.  LOVE it. 

Still a long way to go, but it's getting there! 

Hey.  Have a GREAT weekend.  

The boyfriend and I are doing Christmas in Kansas tonight.  Can't wait to give him his prezzies!

Yes, Please!


Holy crap.  Christmas is next week!  Can't wait to go home and see the fam.

Here's a couple things I asked for:

A pair of Tom's Shoes.  For every pair that's purchased,
they donate a pair to a child in need.  So awesome.

Z Palette.  This thing rocks.  It's magnetic to combine all your
favorite eyeshadow/blushes from any brand. 

Urban Ammo eyeshadow from Urban Decay.
Seriously this palette is GORGEOUS.

This book looks so fun.  Def check it out! 

 OOoh, and I want a GPS.  I get lost WAY too much.

On a completely different note....I got summoned for JURY DUTY!  Suck, right??  No way!  I'm super stoked.  

OOOOooooh and one more thing!  I won a contest on the Paperdoll Romance blog.  Saaaweeeet!  You should check it out.  They rock.... and not just because they give me stuff.  Heh.

Music Monday!

How did I not know about Grace Potter and the Nocturnals?

Ohmygosh she rocks. Especially this song:

P.S. I have 11 followers! All I want for Christmas is 12. LOL

Weekend Recap

After reading the guest post of Craftiness is not Optional on Life in Technicolor's blog, I HAD to try these red velvet cake balls.  Friday night I had the itching to do something domestic, so I thought I'd give them a try.  Putting my own spin on them for the Christmas season by dying the white chocolate green, I have lots of room for improvement on the "dipping" step!  However, they were delicious!  Thanks Jess!

Saturday, the boyfriend came to town and we headed up to Kansas City for my biff's Ugly Christmas Sweater Party.  We had a blast.
Mine even had shoulder pads!!  

PS I apologize for the quality of the photos in this post.  They were all taken on my Blackberry.

There was a white elephant gift exchange and the boyfriend (Dexter) won an autographed picture of one of the guys at the party.  Bahahaha.

Sunday I slept in until about noon.  Before you judge me, I have to tell you that we decided to drive back from KC last night AFTER the party, putting us back home at 3:30 a.m.  The sleeping in was definitely justified! 

I put up my tree today.  Heh. 

And finally, before the boyfriend had to go back to Wichita (where he lives), we decided to go see the 3rd Chronicles of Narnia move.  Sooo good.  Definitely recommend it. 

Overall weekend gets 5 outta 5 stars.  Back to the grind....

Another reason why I need an iPad.

Christmas music from the "iBand" at North Point Community Church.  Seriously, this rocks.  Seriously.

Long Overdue Thanksgiving Pics

So the 'rents came down for Thanksgiving.  They haven't made the trek down here (9 hours) in over a year.  Needless to say, I was beginning to think they didn't love me anymore.  Heh.  Only thing missing was the brother (I know, ladies.  WINK). BTW he's in a band called Rolling Fourth.  If you like hillbilly, punk, rock, ska (lol- hard to define the awesomeness)- check it out here.

Mom decorated the dining room and made quite a feast.  I, proudly, peeled the potatoes for mashing.  Heh.

Here's some pics:

I'm definitely thankful for my awesome fam.

Party Treats

For those that know me, I'm not the most domestic chick there is. So usually when there's a party at work, I'm the one that brings the rolls or napkins.

Recently all of those things were taken before I could sign up and I was feeling a little guilty about never bringing anything of substance. So... with the party celebrating the new national director for Teen Challenge, I thought it was time to get creative.

Naturally, this is what I came up with:

Peanut butter and jelly cut out with a star cookie cutter! LOL

Baby steps, right? :)

2010- The Ramblings of a Tall Girl

So there's this thing on facebook that compiles your status updates from 2010 into a collage.  It's pretty funny.

I had hoped I'd be more interesting.

And apparently I complain a lot.

Oh well.  There's always next year.  *Big Sigh*  LOL! (PS if you click on the picture it gets bigger so you can actually read it).

Music Monday- GLEE!

I've kinda sucked lately on consistently blogging.  I know I promised I would do better at posting, but alas, I've failed you.  LOL  Like you care, right?

Anyhoo- My name is Megan.  It's Monday.  I like Music.  They all start with 'M,' so....it's time to share!

For all you Glee fans out there or just Christmas music lovers in general (I'm a new Gleek), you HAVE to check out their Christmas album.  It totally rocks.

I've been a bit of a scrooge the past couple of years, what are something other EXCELLENT Christmas albums?  Do tell!  The masses are waiting!  ;)  

P.S. I just ate some skittles.  I forget how much I love them.  Seriously, it's like a rainbow party in my mouth.

A friend sent me this video today. Appropriate for the Christmas season and definitely put a smile on my face. Enjoy!

Dun Dun Duuuuuuuh!

So.... I got some new boots. May not seem like a big deal to you, the average sized person. But to the 6 foot athletically built calve having female, finding new boots that fit is a BIG deal!

I slept in them last night. Ok, not really, but here's the saga of getting them...

A few months ago I was in search of the perfect cognac tall boot for fall. I found some from J Crew, but at $318, they weren't exactly in my budget. Then, dun dun duuuuuh, I cam across a random website for a clothing company called Jessica London. Then, I found THE boots. Tall boots with extra wide calves and they go up to size 12!!! I'm an 11, but I found this encouraging for my fellow big-footed-females!

Turns out the site is for plus-size women, but I feel like I've found the best kept secret for boots!

These boots almost didn't happen though. They were on back order and I placed the order in Sept and just got them yesterday. You should of heard me talking to the boots as I was unwrapping them- "you BETTER fit me" and "you BETTER be comfortable." (really intimidating I'm sure). One could say I was a little hostile after waiting so long...

After coupons and discounts, I got these for $43! (*tall girl pats herself on the back). Anyhoo, here's a crappy pic I took on my cell phone.

If you have the same problem as me, they are having a free shipping, 40% off sale now! Click here to look fly.
