You may have seen on my instagram (@meg.greenhalgh) that my Grandma and Grandpa won Christmas this year with this amazing vintage suede two piece. I’m seriously so in love… so of course, I made Dallin take a million photos of me wearing it.
There’s something about a new outfit and hair do that make a lady feed damn powerful! *cue Shania Twain*
I get asked all the time why I change my hair so often. There are a few reasons –
it’s cheaper than therapy
nothing makes me feel more confident than having complete control over something (shout out to the rest of my psycho Gemini twins!!).
Thank you Gma and Gpa for your endless encouragement of me expressing my individuality. You created this. I love you both!
This is one of my favorite corners in Park Slope, it screams Brooklyn. It’s been a while since I’ve done a life update so I felt it was time. Especially because we’ve been so busy. I love summer. My birthday is at the beginning of summer and I always feel like it’s the perfect kick off. You can see more from my birthday by seeing some of my previous posts. I think it was my favorite birthday ever so if you want to see the happiest I think I’ve ever been… check out that post.
I went to The MET with some girlfriends and did you know there is a rooftop? I’ve heard rumors of the amazing roof top so I’m glad we went up and checked it out. #views4dayz Also, really great spot to hang out and catch up with great friends.
NYC recently launched a ferry route and there’s a ferry that runs from Sunset Park to Rockaway Beach… it only takes 50 minutes and you’re on a boat. So duh! Kenzie (pictured above) and I obviously wanted to try it out. Unfortunately, the ferry was AT CAPACITY!! We were so bummed, I may have even made a really insensitive refugee joke about it. By the time we made it to the beach (5 HOURS LATER!) we were feeling pretty defeated. However, it ended up being worth it. The sun and sand are always worth the wait.
Some of you may know, I’ve been called to serve in the Young Womens in my Brooklyn Ward (for you non mormon readers; let me translate – Mormons meet in congregations called ‘wards’ in each ward, each member is given a ‘calling’. My calling is in the Young Womens which is just a fancy name for youth (12-18 yo) of the female gender).
Anyways, in our young womens it’s often challenging to get our youth together for activities because they live all over Brooklyn and they have crazy busy schedules. So sometimes we have to draw in our girls! (pictured above ;)) We went to the New York Philharmonic and it was a really great experience bonding over great music.
The next bit of photos are from our trip to Salt Lake. My best friend, Sara Evans got married!!! It was such a great celebration and I’m glad we got to spend some time with family and friends.
I’m now a quarter of a century old!!! My mom and sister came to New York to help me celebrate and it was amazing. Below are some photos from the weekend.
When Dallin and I started talking about moving to New York my mom couldn’t stop talking about how she was dying to visit Coney Island. So we made her dreams come true with a 2 night stay in Coney Island!
On Saturday we went to the NYCFC game! I mixed up the kickoff time so we we’re pretty late but we made the most of it. Annnnd they won! 2-1 🙂 My crush on Jack Harrison keeps growing each game.
It was a great weekend and I’m sad it had to end! COME BACK!! Counting down the days until we get to play and laugh again!! Also – how badass is Tracy? She is fearless and challenges me to be the same in every way – she’s the only reason I was able to hop on the Slingshot ride!! Thanks for coming to see me.
Sometimes you just need a little family time.. so you book a flight home with almost little to no notice to your job (or husband)!! **Thanks Commodity!!
I flew into Salt Lake, got in the car with my mom and sister and drove 8 hours across the desert to my grandparents home in Golden Valley, Arizona. I loved going to see my grandparents as a kid but always was a little hesitant because I felt like THERE IS NOTHING TO DO IN THIS TINY TOWN!! Now I want to run there every weekend because THERE IS NOTHING TO DO IN THAT TINY TOWN!! It’s so relaxing and you get real creative with your activities.
This trip we went into Kingman, visited family members and ate at the most adorable 50’s themed restaurant, Mr D’s!
We visited the cutest town along old Route 66, Oatman! I’ve been here a few times before to feed the donkeys and explore the little shops and restaurants. This time was a little different because it was Bike Week so the little town was as crowded as Times Square!!
One evening after putting the old folks to bed, Melanie and I drove into Laughlin to go hit up the casino’s because she’s finally legal! However, we ended up in the arcade – we had a blast. The next day we decided to hit up the beach because it was such a nice day.
Video below is a highlight reel – it’s not my best work. I was too busy enjoying my family time to worry about my camera. I love them all so much! I’m really happy I get to live this life with them.
