This is your life...

This is the moment
It’s on the line
Which way you gonna fall?
In the middle between
Wrong and right
But you know after all

It’s your life
What you gonna do?
The world is watching you
Every day the choices you make
Say what you are and who
Your heart beats for
It’s an open door
It’s your life

Are you who you always said you would be?
With a sinking feeling in your chest
Always waiting for someone else to fix you
Tell me when did you forget


To live the way that you believe
This is your opportunity
To let your life be one that lights the way

Hot Quarterback Highlight- 2011 Edition

It's that time again!  My picks for the hottest quarterbacks in the NFL this season.  In case you missed it or want to compare, here's 2010 and 2009's list.

Let's not waste time with words, bring on the HUNKS! (Oh and don't forget to vote for your favorite to the right)

#5  Tim Tebow,

Denver Broncos
Height:  6'3
Meg B's comments:  The first of 2 QB's from Denver this year, Tebow loves Jesus and isn't afraid to let people know it.  That alone makes him that much more attractive and definitely worthy of this list!

Andy Dalton, #14
Cincinnati Bengals
Height: 6'2

Meg B's comments:  Well, I'm not happy that Andy lead TCU to a victory over my Wisconsin Badgers in the Rose Bowl this past year, but I am happy that I get to watch his handsome-self play in the NFL this year!

Christian Ponder, #7
Minnesota Vikings
Height:  6'2
Meg B's comments:  This hottie of a gem was found by chance.  But my oh my, I'm glad I did.  For a guy replacing Brett Favre, you def have what it takes Christian!

Brady Quinn, #9
Denver Broncos
Height:  6'3
Meg B's comments:  Man, Denver sure knew what they were doing this year with sexy QB's.  If their colors weren't orange and blue (to remind me of my home-team's rival), I might consider rocking those colors in support of these yummy athletes!

And finally....without further ado....as if you didn't know this one was coming.....

#1 on our list....
Aaron "SuperBowl Champion" Rodgers, #12
Reigning World Champions, The Green Bay Packers
Height:  6'2

 Meg B's comments:  No doubt, a Superbowl ring from your home team's quarterback is definitely worthy of being the hottest on this year's list (That manly scruffy face doesn't hurt either!)  Keep up the good work Aaron, can't wait for ring #2 this year.

Let the games begin!

Music Monday...On Tuesday

Many of you have heard Beyonce's song "Single Ladies." I'll admit, it's preeetty catchy.  If the R&B "jive" isn't for you, I've found an AWESOME remake of this song by the group Pomplamoose.  Check them out on YouTube for more gems like this one...

Come to think of it, I may have posted this already a while back.  Oh well, it's def worth sharing again!

Lioness Arise!

A couple weeks ago I was in Phoenix for work and had the pleasure of interviewing international speaker and author, Lisa Bevere.  Let me just tell you that she is AMAZING! 

Check out our interview below: 

I'm currently reading Lisa's book, Lioness Arise.  It's inspiring and I definitely recommend.  It's a great motivator to be all that God has called you to be.  You can order it here

As Greg Jennings always says, "Be great today."

Online Dating Profile 101

This post is for all my single friends, specifically those with testosterone.

Dating sites. We've all tried them.  C'mon.  Admit it.  Ain't no shame in your game.  

Whether Christian Mingle, Match.com or Plenty of Fish (to name a few), I've found one constant- more often than not, these guys are so clueless with their profiles.  Seriously dude. You're better than that.

So, for the single fellas reading this, I present to you...


You're welcome in advance.

1.  SHIRTLESS PROFILE PICTURE.  Let’s be real here, there are at least 20 more guys with hotter bods than you so impress me with your face, wit and charm, not your mediocre abs.

I don’t care if it’s your mom, your sister, your cousin or Great Aunt Betty with you in your profile picture.  If I wanted to compete, I'd go on The Bachelor.

3.  CHEESY HEADLINE.  I'm sure you really are: “Prince Charming” “Mr. Right” “Casanova” or “Theoneforyou"  and you just haven't found your princess yet.  Riiiight. 

4.  DRAMA FREE ZONE.  Your intro paragraph warns girls with drama from messaging you. Translation: You either are drama or have had a lot of it in the past.  You have baggage written all over you. Not interested. 

5. FLAMES BUTTON-UP SHIRT.  1996 called and they want their shirt back.  And probably your haircut, JNCO jeans and Vans tennis shoes as well.

In case you missed it

So for the 17 people that read my blog, most of you probably weren't around at the beginning (circa 2007).  So I figured I would highlight a few of my favorite posts that you may or may not find amusing.  Heh.

Just click on the titles below to take a gander...


Oh, and meet TJ.  My cousin's baby and pretty much the sweetest thing I've come in contact with.  Ever.

Whoa. Baby.

So...I'm on Twitter for anyone out there that cares or would like to follow me (@MegB35).

Rarely do I tweet celebrities/athletes because they don't usually right back, and frankly, I don't think I come up with witty enough things to merrit a respoonse.

HOWEVER, today was a GREAT day!  Why you ask?  Because Greg Jennings of the GREEN BAY PACKERS replied to my tweet!  Seriously, made.my.day.month.

See for yourself:

Waitin' on a dream...

The following is a little poem my mom used to jokingly say as I was growing up...

"Patience is a virtue,
possess it if you can.
Found rarely in a woman, 
and never in a man."

Ah patience.  Oh how I loathe thee.  Mostly because I have such a hard time practicing it.   I genuinely desire God's will for my life, however, I can't seem to get to that place where I'm confident in what that plan is.

A good friend of mine, Doug Clay, recently wrote a book called Dreaming in 3D.  I had the pleasure of hearing him speak in front of thousands of people while I was in Arizona for work last week.  One thing he said really hit me deep in my core.  He said:  "Too many dreams get aborted because of lack of patience."  Boom. 

Even though I don't know specifically what my dream is, I know that I'm destined to do something great.  Destined to impact people in a positive way.  Destined to be a leader and destined to be an example of Christ to others.   I pray that disappointments, silence and distractions will not keep me from achieving my dreams.  The dreams that my creator has instilled in me.

In the meantime, as I struggle with patience and with the lack of understanding as to why I'm currently in a place of waiting, I hold on to this: 

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." - Philippians 4:6-7

Because let's face it, in this world of chaos and unknowing, He truly is the peace that passes all understanding.  

Hold on to your dreams my friends!  And that whole patience thing, I'll work on it if you will.  :)

Top seven reasons I would never wanna be the bachelorette

1. They say the camera adds 10 lbs. Enough said. 

2. When you turn anything into a competition for guys, they want to WIN. Even if they don't care about the prize,  it's about WINNING the competition. Insert insecurities now. Did I mention guys like to win?!!  (Well, i mean all guys except the Chicago Cubs). 

3.  I don't think ABC could find 25 guys to meet my height requirements. "This season on the first ever Giant Bachelorette..." 

4.  It's all bubbles and puppies till the cameras are off. Of course I'm gonna be super awesome the 5 minutes that  Prince Charming and I are together before we decide we are in love. But what about when real life hits and you find out that sometimes I don't wear makeup and that I actually prefer basketball shorts over booty shorts?! 

5.  My mom still thinks I don't kiss boys. I'd hate for her to find out on national television because of course I'd have to try every flavor... That's what the bachelorette does, right? Duh. 

6.  The idea of them dropping me off 50 ft away from my date just so I could dramatically run to him is just silly. I wouldn't do it. They'd probably end up firing me and going back to short girls who think frolicking is cute. 

7. My friends would make fun of me. 

So in the meantime... "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will grant you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
