it’s been a rough few weeks around my house.
as some readers of my blog may know, my dad has been valiantly battling bladder cancer for the last year and things have simply gone down hill lately.
so I apologize for the lack of blogging, however family comes first.
in the mean time, we do receive flowers frequently and I had to share this beautiful lily that opened up. (excuse the photo quality, it’s from my phone.)

162 years ago today, my favorite state became a state. So I just want to say….
2012 is a great year for Internet-related commericals apparently. First we had the IE9 commercial with Alex Clare’s Too Close (which I already blogged about) and now we have a Bing commercial with an awesome song by The Lumineers.
“Ho Hey” is definitely a feel good kind of song. The lyrics for this song almost act as background to the melody, so I’ve yet to really listen to them — I have absolutely no idea what this song is about — time for a little Googling later this afternoon.
The marketing team at Bing did a great job timing the song within the commercial, not to mention including all those wonderful pictures of Hawaii. I mean who doesn’t like Hawaii?! :)
In other news… I’m in the midst of packing like a wild-woman. This was how I caught up on some TV shows this morning over coffee.
Hulu. On top of a box.
Yep, that’s my life.

today is quite an icky day. clouds. a few sprinkles here and there. and overall just a stay inside kinda day.
according to the calendar it is technically spring. so i decided to take my free saturday to do some “not-such-a-spring day, spring cleaning.” this is from instagram. clearly all the stuff piled on my bed is a sign that i have a lot left to do… so i better get back to it instead of being distracted by the interweb. :)
hope it’s warm and sunny wherever you’re spending spring and you’re out having fun… or cleaning. whatever makes you happy!
For those of you who are avid readers of meganeilers.wordpress.com things may look a little different around here.
I’ve decided that my blog needed a more mature look to go with my upcoming graduation and leap (holding my breath!!) into the real world, so despite my love of the previous theme, I chose something with a little less pink (actually none at all).
You’ll have to excuse any weirdness that may happen for a few weeks on the site as I am still learning the ins and outs of the new features.
In the mean time I leave you with an image of my coffee cup from this morning. Valentine’s Day is only a few days away ladies and gentlemen, get excited!
