Meet Megan

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. How generous of you to give away a gift card. I would love to win! So i am already a followere of yours, and I LOVE your house. It is beautiful! Also, my new favorite blog is redesignreallife.blogspot.com.
    It's a crative blog I just started to journal all my projects. I'd love for you to check it out, and if you like it pass it along! I may have to do a giveaway myself so i can get some more followers!

  2. How can I pick just one?!?! I am going to with Enjoying The Small Things (www.kellehampton.com). There is some seriously beautiful and inspiring writing on there… make sure to grab some tissues.

  3. I'm loving so many new blogs lately, I think I have close to 50 in my Google reader. I think my favorite is Remodelaholic, because she features so many different blogs for me to discover!!!!!

  4. Awwww…what a sweet thing to do. We do ALL love Target!! I would have to say my two favorites are Maillardville Manor (Ashli) and your blog. Those are the two I can't wait to see the posts for each day. They are very real, down to earth, and informative.

  5. What a great giveaway!! I'm in Katy so not too far from you! 🙂 I have too many blogs I love, but most are either running/health/food related or decorating/craft/DIY related. Ana at Knock Off Wood is awesome, The Nester, Thrifty Decor Chick, Skinny Runner, Choosing Raw, and it goes on and on and on

  6. I think if I had to pick just one, it would either be Thrifty Decor Chick or Jones Design. (See, I can't even pick just one!) But I love both of them because they don't just show you what they have done, but how YOU can do it too.

  7. Well it's hard to pick one favorite since I like so many for different reasons so here are a few from the top of my feeble mind: Mustard Seed Creations, House of Hepworths, The Shabby Nest, Maillardville Manor, Infarrantly Creative & Dittle Dattle.

  8. I just started following your blog a week or two ago and love it! Your mudroom is fabulous and has given me motivation to finish mine, it's been in a half done process for a while. 🙂

  9. I just found your page today. It seems that at least once or twice a week I add a "favorite" to my list. But I think my favorite-ist (is that a word?) is "Just a Girl" this is the one that started it all.

  10. I would say that I am officially addicted to blogs … I don't know which one is my favorite, really. I really love checking in to Honey We're Home – the new home is fab.

  11. I love your blog and I'm a faithful follower. There are so many great blogs out there but 2 of my faves are House of Grace, and yours of course!

  12. Love Love Love your blog. I could move into your home in an instand and feel instantly happy.

    Favorite blog I should say mine (www.magruderfive.blogspot.com) but really all it is is my recipe collection. I was sick of going to a bunch of different sites / cookbooks for recipes so I am slowly uploading all of my recipes there. They are all tried and true that feed my family of five. Other than that I love Big Mama, House of Smith's, Young House Love and Pioneer Woman but my blogroll is crazy long.

    Also, I am a follower of your blog.

  13. So excited I found your blog! I live in Houston as well, and it's been fun watching you decorate your home! We'll have to get our baby boys together for a play date at the Chilren's Museum someday! My youngest, Everson, is 11 months. My FAV blog to read and follow and be inspired by is



  14. Do I get bonus points for being a stalker-follower and reading every. single. post.?!

    fun giveaway! I think it's time I did one too.

    xo, c

  15. My favorite blog is Heather's blog at Want What You Have. She is a great story teller and a great organizer. She keeps me enthralled with her funny stories of her family and such. She also has another blog called Economical Eats and some of the best recipes I've ever had came from it! – Karen

  16. Hi Megan! Well, YOUR blog is one my favorite daily reads! Especially love cute posts about James (: But my other favorite is Coco+Kelley!

  17. Love your blog. Some other favorites are: remodelaholic, the shabby nest, and the nester. Some fun craft blogs are tatertots and jello and house of smith. Thanks for doing this.

  22. I really have fun at Less Cake {More Frosting}! I don't know her but we think so alike! Her personality is so cute and really comes through! Also, I am already a follower! Thanks for all your fun stuff!

  23. One of my favorite blogs right now is Not That Kind of Girl – mostly because it has nothing to do with my life (it's not a nesting blog or a newlywed blog or anything). She's just a single girl living in Boston trying things that she wouldn't typically do every day. She is wildly funny and her writing is unique.

    Also, I am already a follower via Google Reader!

  24. I love your blog, but also really love TDC. She's so hip and happening, and I ended up finding your blogs through each other! So glad I did!

  25. New to the blogging world, new follower of you fantastic blog! We just moved from Denver to Seattle and have 2 rooms that are entirely empty! Would love a gift car to Target 🙂

  26. Woohoo! I love target! My favorite blog right now is Young House Love. I recently bought a house and am trying to make it MINE, so I'm interested in all decor blogs!

  27. I love your blog! We are also moving into our new house and it's fun seeing another person's journey in creating a home!

    I love centsational girl for her DIY projects and amazing budget friendly ideas.
