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 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.
