I know it's not too uncommon for me to be a sporadic blogger, but I have a real reason this time! For those that have been keeping up with me for a while (Thank you!) will know that I used to live in DC, moved from DC and kept the same job when I got married, started a photography business, lost DC job due to the economy. Well, I accepted a full-time job offer and have been working for the past two weeks! I work for an energy consulting firm in Richmond- and I have to say, God provides at just the right time! In a few weeks I will begin repaying my student loans--and although I could have done that with the business photography is bringing in, I would just be making the minimum payments and not being able to save. So-- the job is going to knock out those loans in A LOT less time (and save money! Interest is CRAZY!)

This past weekend I also hosted a boudoir marathon which was the best one yet & check here over the next few days to see some sneak peaks!

I'm doing it!

My name is Megan and I have an addiction.
I am 100% addicted to FOOD!

A lot of days I don't feel "full" until I eat something I know I shouldn't. (my biggest weakness is carbs!..and Chik Fil A) I feel like a fat man trapped in a petite body. I try to have a homemade smoothie in the morning (strawberries, low-fat yogurt, OJ..Yummy!) but ruin my healthy eating and exercise with constant snacking & the more-than-once-weekly trip to a fast food joint.

I am working on creating healthy weekly menus in order to avoid the 5pm "oh no what are we going to eat for dinner?" feeling which usually leads to processed dinners-- which i'm kind of sick of!

So here's where I need your help!

What is your favorite (pretty healthy) recipe?

This dog of mine

I'm trying to get back in the mode of taking pictures just for myself [the lack of personal pictures is going to change in 2010!] here is my first set for 2010..

Sadie is part of our neighborhood watch..

The Sweet Life

I wouldn't say that David and I are boring.. we are just pretty busy and don't go out a lot! Besides dinner dates and movies I mean-- we do that quite a bit, but we don't really see the bar scene ever. We just aren't big on drinking- in fact we normally don't even keep alcohol in the house! However, with last night being New Years Eve-- we wanted to go out and celebrate!

I hate my phone pictures- eeek! But it seems less work than pulling out my 50D. I need to purchase a little point & shoot to carry with me because it's pretty sad the amount of pictures I take on a personal level right now! My top was really cute though, hopefully one of our friends captured a picture that I can post!

I am looking forward to seeing what 2010 holds for us! Hopefully it includes getting a final answer of where we'll be "stationed" with Davids job so we can start house hunting and then work on making beautiful babies! David is civilian and there's a good chance we get to stay here because that's what we've requested, but there's always a chance we could go somewhere else. I wouldn't mind Hawaii if it weren't so far away! We are also looking into VA Beach..but only time will tell!
