Megoirs {Happy Blogiversary!}


Hey everyone…I’m baaaaaack!! And today, on my six year blogiversary, you’ll see a bit of a makeover on the Megster Meter. For one, I’m switching up the name. After six years of pretty much the same stuff, it’s time for a little something new! The design is still pretty simple, but let’s face it…I don’t have much of a design eye, and I don’t have much disposable income to go paying someone to do it for me. So, here I am. What you see is what you get!

So Megoirs will pretty much be what you’re used to from me: recipes, crafts, health, travel, random rants, etc. I hope to add in a little bit more about the day-to-day of my life, but only when I’m feeling at least a little bit clever. Otherwise, those posts would be a tad bit boring for you.

Please stick around, comment when you feel so moved, and let me know if there is something you really like and would like to see more of. I’m here to ramble about my life please you! And if you’re bored, check out the pages listed across the top of the blog, including “start here,” “recipe box,” and “30 before 30.” Welcome back and enjoy!!

All my lovin,


Five Year Blogiversary

It slipped my mind that yesterday marks the five-year mark since I started this blog…hard to believe!

It began becuase I was bored and thought I had something to say to the world. But what it’s really turned into is a public journal. It’s a place for me to share what I’m up to and what’s on my mind, even if it is just me and my family who read it sometimes. At the end of the day, it makes me feel like part of the bigger picture of life.

So through the crafts, the food, the heart breaks, the happies, and all of the personal growth, I have this strange electronic summary of five years of my life. Thank you all for being a part of it!

Blogiversary! {four years}

Today marks four years since I started this measly little blog. While it has definitely grown from how it began, I feel like it has remained very personal, and honestly, selfishly, mostly just for me. I am so grateful for the people who read it, and of course I love when I get positive feedback on anything I post. But at the end of the day, Megster Meter has really been about having a creative outlet, and really just trying to be more creative in general.

Let’s talk about some things that have happened in the last year, because that’s always fun…

I finished up my 101 in 1001 list…YAY!!

It looks like my most popular food post in the last year were these sweet little cupcakes:

The most popular projects were my recent wreath and also the bunting I made for a farm themed baby shower

One of my favorite travel moments was DEFINITELY this group of students on my plane, many of whom had never flown at all! Although this lady was pretty entertaining too…

Our March adventure to Portland, Seattle, and Vancouver was our most adventurous adventure yet, in my opinion, and sharing it with my favorite travel companion was simply the cherry on top.

This is just a few of the many great adventures and joys that have happened throughout the year. As I look through all my posts, I can’t help but think about how blessed I am to have a life so rich in relationships and discovery.


Two-Year Blogiversary {Link Love}

Two years have flown by since my first (and lamest) blog entry! But I have LOVED having not only an outlet for my thoughts and projects, but also a way to track the time.  Has anyone else noticed that after graduating college, time begins to fly at an exponential rate? I swear…I mean, it’s August 2010. When did THAT happen?

In part, I see my blog as a tool to look over the last two years.  So much has happened in my life, and it excites me to think of the changes that will come with the next two years, and the two after that, and … well, you know.

So today, a bit of a stroll down memory lane, in no particular order, with a little link love for you all.

In the last two years…

I’ve uncovered some old poems.

I’ve made a lot of food.

Crafty projects have been attempted.

I’ve started a 101 in 1001 list (which will end before you know it!)

I’ve learned a little about photography.

Relationships have ended and begun.  And ended.

Friends have gotten engaged and married.

I’ve moved.

I’ve traveled home for Christmases and 4ths, to New York for the first time, and to Guatemala for epic adventures.

I’ve brewery-toured.

Some pretty amazing parties have been hosted by my roomies and me.

I’ve been in a show or two or three…and currently four.

I’ve started grad school.

I’ve been promoted.

Nashville has seen a snow storm and a flood.

I’ve celebrated my mom and dad and miss them terribly.

I’ve grown up just a little bit more.

Thanks to all of you beautiful people who have been around for any part of not only the last two years, but the twenty-three that came before them.  I love the amazing people who make my life what it is. Where would I be without you?

And to all of you readers, who have hopped on board over the last two years — you are amazing!  I love getting your emails and comments.  Keep ’em coming!
