Real Life....

After some long flights, we're back from Hawaii and I'm finally in Chicago. Apparently I am getting back to work as an online hustler/Nigerian Princess. It's not easy.

We had a GREAT time in Hawaii, we had nice weather and it was super relaxing. It was nice to be able to spend 10 uninterrupted days with Brado after not seeing him for a while. Being 5 1/2 months pregnant was not the most fun part, but honestly, it wasn't bad, and I think I did pretty well.

Here is a picture of me in my glorious maternity swimsuit. of the best parts, shave ice. I have been craving it since I got back.

Brado enjoying his second love, the ocean.

I've been attempting to get settled/organized, but we need some furniture before that can happen. So basically I sit here and look at piles of stuff and make mental lists of what we need to buy. We are definitely doing some shopping this weekend so our place can feel a little more welcoming. Luckily, the weather has been great the couple days I've been here, so I've done a little exploring. I've walked around our neighborhood and down to Grant Park and the lake; it's really beautiful here right now.

On a side note, the day I got out here I found out that my dad had to be life flighted from his work site in Alaska to Anchorage. He got a serious infection that entered his bloodstream and did quite a number on him...He's been in the ICU since Monday. He's been pretty steady; making a few small improvements, but still has a long way to go. It's a stressful situation in the first place, but it's been harder since I'm here and he's in AK. Luckily, my mom was able to fly up there and be at the hospital with him.


  1. Ha! Brady looks FAT in all those pictures........d'oh!

  2. Meg, I'm glad you and Brady could go to Hawaii one more time before the baby comes...sorry to hear about your dad, we are crossing our fingers he gets better.

  3. that last post is from Ryan, it just says Aaron because I set up a mission blog for him (

  4. Seeing pictures of you guys makes us miss you more. We don't like your renters...they're not friendly...I hope they don't read your blog! I'm glad you guys had fun in Hawaii and we are praying for your dad. Megan you look great! I have been meaning to call you and see how things are going. I'll do that one of these days!!

  5. I'm really sorry to hear about your dad and I hope everything works out in his favor. I will keep him in my thoughts (and prayers) over the next few days.

    Hawaii looks amazing! I have almost forgotten what that place looks like because I haven't been in SO long. We are supposed to be there now, but Tyler's g-ma decided to "kick it" so we had to tade in our Hawaii trip for a Utah trip.

    Anyway, I hope you are doing well and I can't wait to see you and that little baby growing inside your belly!

  6. Crazy life you guys live. Fun though. Hope your Dad gets better soon. Hawaii looks fun. Megan the belly is so cute. Hope you get settled soon. Miss you guys.

  7. So sorry to hear about your dad. Let us know if he is doing any better.
    It sounds like you have a lot to do to get settled. Good luck with everything! You don't even look pregnant in your Hawaii picture!
