“When you're young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don't leap at all because there's not always someone there to catch you. And in life, there's no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?”

Can't stand the heat...stay out of the South.
So. It's been a while. I'm sorry loyal readers. (I know two of you who get a kick out of this. The other seven are just compassionate and follow me out of pity. I'll accept that, too.)
SO...what's up? Here is a re-cap of life lately:
I got into grad school. Yeah. All that fun studying during lunch breaks, at night and a couple of weekends I guess paid off. Or the school just felt bad for me because I emailed them weekly until I heard a reply. Either way, I got in. I start August 18 working on my Masters of Public Administration. In 2 1/2 years you will be able to call me Master Maegan. No? Fine.
The same Friday I found out that I had gotten into grad school was the weekend I was going to the lake for Forth of July. I spent the entire weekend with some of the most fun people ever. We had a good time. Lots of laughs. Lots of fun. Lots of memories I'll never forget. (Some memories I will try to forget though...)
This is Brandi, she's a super fun, sweet girl and we found out we had something in common. That will be a story for later on this week...it involves dating...the same guy...at the same time.
After leaving the lake Monday, I went to my parents house to see what was shaking. As I drove up into the neighborhood, I see an army of flags...
Very patriotic my parents' neighborhood. Gotta love small towns enthusiasm for holidays.
Now that holidays are over and it's back to real world, I seem to have a daily afternoon snack that I am totally obsessed with eating. M&M's, Cheez-it's and gummy bears. This reminds me that even though I argue I am an adult, my eating habits are of a 6-year-old.
But who can say no to gummy bears???
Last weekend my cousin Sarah and I got up bright eye early and hit the farmers market. I bought tomatoes, cucumbers, peaches, corn, bell peppers and bread. It's enough to send me over the edge in vegetable heaven.
Tonight I cooked bell peppers, corn and green beans. It was delightful. DELIGHTFUL. What is even more delightful are the peaches that I bought. Thinking about them now makes me happy.
Also tonight, I tried making banana pudding. I'm still waiting on the pudding to set. I hope this turns out. We shall see...
So that's the re-cap from the past two weeks. Lake. Friends. Laughter. Cooking. School. Farmers Market. Work. Life.
Off to check my pudding now...
