weekend update.



RECAPS
-- i bought TOMS for the first time ever. i don't know what took me so long to commit! i bought two pair. one bright and summery, and the other is a snow leopard print, because i'm sassy like that.

-- confession: sometimes i feel insecure about the fact that i do not use the instagram square frame anymore. i go for the rectangle. what is your instagram preference? (p.s. i realize this concern i feel is completely absurd ;))

-- my "speak life" t-shirt from naptime diaries came in this week! i love the reminder it gives to watch my words and to only speak words of truth that uplift and encourage.

-- the weather has been so nice and the days have been longer, so i've gotten to go walk my puppy a couple miles in the evenings when i get home from work!

-- on saturday night, i went to a drew holcomb and the neighbors concert. also, judah and the lion opened up the show and KILLED it. the whole evening was like a slice of southern heaven.

-- i went to see captain america yesterday with one of my friends who appreciates/loves nerdy movies just as much as i do! it was SO good! #merica

Aren't TOMS great? I love my pairs - so easy & comfortable! Also love that "speak life" shirt - I've been debating getting one :)

I think we'd be besties in "real life." Ha! I'm addicted to Toms, LOVE Drew Holcombe and the Neighbors, and Captain America? AWESOME!!!

I'm so on you with the rectangle instagrams. My main reason is that when I was shooting squares I found I was cheating and taking a not-so-great photo and cropping the bad part out. Shooting with rectangle photos makes me consider the whole shot.

Megan McIlvaine said...

yessss, thank you! you understand me! :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

um, totally! ahhhh wish you could have come to the drew holcomb concert with me! you would have LOVED it!

Megan McIlvaine said...

they are so comfy!! i wore mine all weekend, ha!
you should totally get a "speak life" shirt!! :)

Elizabeth Mayberry said...

I want to see Captain America so badly!

Jenny Fish said...

I have owned 5 pairs of Toms and 3 have holes in them from so much wear - good choice! And that goat video is HILARIOUS.

meg pitts said...

We saw them last year at a college nearby. LOVED them. That's where I fell in love with them! They were actually opening for NeedtoBreathe.

Amy Hodgdon said...

I can't stand the square instagram frame anymore- so I go with the rectangle now as well! no shame! :)
I ALSO loved that article on how to love a blogger! Related with all of it! :)

Jenna Secrist said...

That shirt reminds me of a song we sing in chapel each week and it says "I don't want to speak a word unless it points back to You (God)". It's such a powerful message and is a good reminder for kids and adults alike! And....I LOVE your Toms!

Little Brave said...

I love these posts. especially the "random facts" bit at the bottom.

also, I've only bought one pair of toms in my life- they were the burlap kind so they looked terrible pretty quickly and i never wore socks with them so they smelled RANK. I haven't really opted for another pair. womp womp

Megan McIlvaine said...

thank you, kristina! i'm so glad you stopped by to say hello! :) i will keep that in mind about my TOMS!


i have heard of sseko sandals, and i have a friend who has a pair. they are cute!

Megan McIlvaine said...

well thank, friend! ooooh socks. yeah, i don't wear socks with mine haha. we'll see how that goes ;)

Megan McIlvaine said...

love that! such a good reminder!
and thanks!! me too :)

Amy said...

confession: i had no idea there is a rectangle option for instagram?!?! HELP ME!

Megan McIlvaine said...

i use an app called "instasize" that allows you to frame your photos how you want! then it uploads to instagram via that app. it's what i use for all my 'grams ;)

Samantha@Elah Tree said...

We are can't wait to see Captain America! I think Tyler told me that he refused to watch any of the trailers because he didn't want to see anything before the movie!

Megan McIlvaine said...

haha! a true nerd. i love it. can't wait for you to see it! it was action packed and i was tense the whole time!

Kristina said...

I love These types of posts by you! First Time commmenter I think so "hello" :) i have also owened two pairs of TOMs in my life and loved them. Had to through one out last fall because they smelled so bad after wearing them for 1.5 years. Definitely try to sanitize them from time to time ;-)
Have you heard of Sseko Sandals? Also a great cause behind that company and the sandals are adorable!

Meg McIlvaine said...

perfect! sometimes i miss the square, but i like having more options with the rectangle :)
wasn't that article great?? i think it's so good for those who aren't bloggers to read!

Meg McIlvaine said...

go see it ASAP. make bruce man take you. :)
you will love it. because you like nerdy movies. like i do.

Meg McIlvaine said...

those are some well-loved shoes! i have a pair of chacos that i've owned for almost 12 years. the soles has cracks all in them and i'm just holding my breath hoping my shoe isn't going to fall apart. they are so worn and fit my foot perfectly! i don't want to let them go!
