About Me

Well, hello! I’m Maegan, and I live in Birmingham, AL, with my husband, David. I decided to start this blog for a few reasons, but mainly because I love to write and I have a secret desire to become a famous blogger one day. We’ll see. Want to become a famous blogger with me? Check out some of my awesome Blogging Communities to help grow your blog!

I am currently on a weight loss journey, finding out many, many things about myself along the way. David and I are both doing Weight Watchers, and we truly love it. We started January 13, 2014 (check out my one-year progress report), and I lost 55 pounds (the photo below shows a 52 pound difference) before finding out I was pregnant last September. Along with eating better, we became much more active. I called us “wannabe runners,” but I should have said, “We are runners.” We haven’t had the best luck with running (it’s really hard, you guys!), but we’ve started over, and it seems to be going a lot better this time around.

Once I found out I was pregnant, the weight loss came to a standstill (except during the first trimester, when I was so sick I didn’t eat anything and did lose a few pounds). I ultimately gained all the weight back that I had lost during my pregnancy, but now we’re working on reversing that damage yet again. It’s hard to watch yourself gain the weight back, even when it’s mostly for a good reason (the growing a human reason, not the I’m pregnant so I can pig out reason). Anyway, we’re back on track now, and I hope to have more fun progress pictures as we work toward our goals!

David and I have been married almost four years, and we became a family of three on May 16, 2016, when we welcomed sweet Jonah William into the world.

I work in marketing at National WMU, which has been such a fun job so far. It is a Christian organization, so I am constantly being poured into by sweet coworkers or just through my day-to-day tasks, and I feel so lucky to have this job.  I also was lucky enough to start a dream I’ve had since I was a little kid: open my own shop. I aunched RWR Designs on Etsy a year ago, and it is my sincere hope that my designs can brighten someone’s day. Check out my shop here!

I am very close to my friends and family, no matter how far away we are from each other. We always have so much fun together and laugh until we cry. :) My family truly consists of most of my best friends (Hi, Mom!), and I know I am truly blessed to say that. I have a wonderful relationship with everyone in my family as well as with my in-laws, so that makes me really happy.

I love Jesus with all my heart. David is currently in seminary to eventually work in campus ministry, and we absolutely adore our church family and life group.

I am also a very big nerd. I am obsessed with Harry Potter, Sherlock, The Office, Parks & Rec, Friends, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings… The list seriously goes on and on. I’m really cool, I promise. :)

I also love reading and doing craft projects. I get bored really easily, so it usually takes me awhile to finish a craft project, but I love to paint and hand-lettering is one of my favorite things in the world. As far as reading goes, I reread Harry Potter every summer, and I am a huge believer in reading YA novels even when you’re “too old” to do so. I also love “Brit chick lit,” which is basically me saying I love all of Sophie Kinsella’s books (READ THEM!!).

Thank you so, so much for joining me on my random blogging journey. We’re just going to run with it.
