Awkwardly Project Life, Week Two

 Becky Higgins Project Life

Yes, I’ve managed to stick to doing Project Life for two whole weeks.

Though I’m still two weeks behind, so not quite as impressive as I’d hoped.

But I did include my first full 4×6 photo this week, in case you’d feared all the excitement and milestones were behind us.

I hope you enjoy my theme – family visits and texts to Lindsey clarifying a fox’s level of sexiness.

(It’s always important to have a theme.)

My second addition to the Embarrassing-Scrapbooking-Foibles section.

(For the second week in a row, I hadn’t noticed the error myself until Skye pointed it out.)

(Why I don’t have Skye edit my journaling before I commit it to my pages is unknowable.)

(Except that would require me pre-writing down my journaling and I’m terribly lazy.)

(So somewhat knowable.)

Becky Higgins Project Life

As I didn’t take nearly enough family photos of us sitting around doing crossword puzzles and eating, I added an insight into my everyday routine.

Then I realized I might have issues with meal planning.

And sleep.

But I already knew that.

I added a new journaling section this week, Stalking Loved Ones.

(I only stalk ’cause I love.)

(And because your life is at least marginally more interesting than mine.)

I probably should have shared the date card at the beginning of this post.

But I’m just wild and unpredictable like that.

And I’m far too lazy to change photo order now.

Have I told you lately that I hate glitter?

A hatred that is balanced by my love of stalking woodland creatures.

Making that my second stalking reference in a single post.

(I’m going for the title this year.)

(Which I hope comes with a belt, ’cause I’ve always thought I’d look fabulous in belts.)

(They just seem like they would take so much effort to buy.)

(And then wear.)

(And then make sure they aren’t hanging around, just waiting to be used by an intruder/serial killer.)

(You never know.)

And thus was #ExcitedFace immortalized forever.

Or at least until my kids throw this album in a landfill, after realizing that the key to happiness is freedom from material possessions.

And the Lincoln quotes just keep on coming.


I’m quite proud of myself for having finished week two

Though, no, I haven’t started week three yet

Get off my back, okay?

You imaginary responders, always demanding so much,

    These are so awesome. I want to pay people to know so much about me that they can do this project about me…for me.

    Also…tag. You’re it! http://www.mythornshaveroses.com/2012/01/eleven-randoms.html

      Now that would be the most interesting job ever. “What do you do?” “Oh, I follow people around and then scrapbook their lives.” See, you’d so seldom meet somebody at a party who could top that. Unless a unicorn was at that party.

  • ava January 31, 2012, 2:02 am

    Okay, I’m really digging the Abe Lincoln quotes, keep them coming! :)

  • Nirupama Kumar January 31, 2012, 2:39 am

    so, I’m not the only one who enjoys family knitting? Very hip we are.

    Like the mixed pp look. I would try it, but I don’t really have enough for more than one page any given week.

    • Megan January 31, 2012, 8:45 am

      All the cool kids love family knitting!

  • Lorrie January 31, 2012, 7:02 am

    So proud of you for sticking with it two whole weeks! Cause that’s two more weeks than I could stick with it. I love the way everyone’s neat scrapbooks turn out, but hate actually having to do it. It’s just one of many issues I have.

    • Megan January 31, 2012, 8:45 am

      I feel exactly the same way about: web design/photo shoots/home improvement/link-ups/pet ownership/eating.

  • blackhuff January 31, 2012, 7:04 am

    I Love love love love love love that piece of “A day in my life” :) You are so unique (and funny)

    • Megan January 31, 2012, 8:44 am

      I know, right? I’m a snowflake! Someone told me that once. I can’t remember who. But I’m sure he/she is a snowflake too.

  • liz January 31, 2012, 7:08 am

    You need a picture of Tessa for your project.

    Interestingly enough, we call her our Foxy Lady because of her ears and long skinny body.

    You think foxes are sexy.

    I’m sensing a correlation.

    • Megan January 31, 2012, 8:39 am

      Oh, don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of Tessa photos soon.

      You know, once I steal her.

      And that’s the most adorable nickname ever.

      I’m twice as excited for our inevitable meeting.

  • Missy Jill (What's Going On Here!?) January 31, 2012, 7:09 am

    Funny. I have a migraine, that’s all I can manage.

    • Megan January 31, 2012, 8:36 am

      I’m so sorry! Sending happy head thoughts your way!

  • agnes January 31, 2012, 9:12 am

    Brilliant! So creative.

  • Kimberly January 31, 2012, 9:34 am

    Your day sounds a lot like mine.
    Ok not really.
    I’m a little disappointed that there aren’t a whole lot of mustaches going on.
    Anymustache, where do you get those cute slips things…I don’t know what the clever word is since I have been coffee free since my gallbladder turned into a weapon of mass destruction…where you slip the mini scrapbook pages in? Seriously…I need one.

  • Nami January 31, 2012, 10:46 am

    I hate glitter, too. The boys think it’s funny to put glitter in their underpants and pee it. Glitter pee. I should trademark that name, don’t you think?

  • jen January 31, 2012, 11:24 am

    Somehow you’ve made stalking loved ones look so creative! Well done!

  • Misty January 31, 2012, 11:46 am

    First, congrats on doing TWO WHOLE WEEKS!! I think that deserves some sort of celebration. Or a tiara. At least a box of Cheez-its! In fact, because of your hard work, I think you should take a week off. I mean, we aren’t slave drivers or anything. Jeesh.

    Second, I love that you included a picture of the backs of the heads of the family members you were standing behind. Nobody ever thinks to include the view from the POV of the person having their picture taken! How will anyone have memories of that if it is not documented? Thank you for being a trailblazer for this cause. We shall hereby deem it “The Megan View.” Nice ring, no?

  • LDiggitty January 31, 2012, 1:31 pm

    Your daily breakdown looks very similar to mine, if you replace “soda” with “coffee” and have me asleep at 1:17am.

    You have inspired me to scrapbook! Ugh, I’m so lazy though… never mind.

  • julie gardner January 31, 2012, 1:49 pm

    Two more things we have in common (apparently):

    1. Glitter hate.
    And more importantly.
    2. Most of the stuff I do incorrectly are somewhat knowable.

    It’s a gift, really.
    (Better than receiving surprise glitter in an envelope, anyway.)

  • Melonie January 31, 2012, 2:17 pm

    My personal favorite was in your daily schedule. I totally relate to 8:45 – decide to give up soda
    11:30- get a soda.

    Glad to know I’m not alone in my addiction.

  • Lauren January 31, 2012, 2:41 pm

    I can’t think of anything suitably snarky because I actually think this is pretty awesome.

  • Skye January 31, 2012, 2:49 pm

    I’m so envious that you have room for a full 4×6 photo.

  • John January 31, 2012, 3:04 pm

    If I scrapbooked, they’d all be 4×6 photos, without Abraham Lincoln quotes. This is why you’re a much better scrapbooker than I am.

    I really think 2013 is the year that Megan needs to meet a monkey.

  • Shelltrice January 31, 2012, 3:58 pm

    I thought at first the Lincoln quote was referring to Nero Wolf – and although odd – it does seem to fit if you add Archie!

  • Vince January 31, 2012, 5:17 pm

    You’d have to say people were much more tolerant way back when.
    Imagine meeting some random at Uni that was spouting all the same stuff as Lincoln. He wouldn’t get further than the gates before he was isolated and dismissed as a total crank.

  • Rach January 31, 2012, 6:10 pm

    I am really amazed by this project! You are so crafy!

  • Shell January 31, 2012, 6:53 pm

    This is ridiculously organized and creative. I can barely manage to take pics let alone do anything with them.

  • Lisa @ Blithe Moments January 31, 2012, 8:36 pm

    This is so gorgeous. That said, I am far to lazy to ever contemplate such a thing. I particularly like the stalking section. Good note taking and stalking are great skills to cultivate. I’m sure they will prove useful.

  • Carrie January 31, 2012, 9:27 pm

    You are simply…cool. And maybe a lotta fab.

    I love that you’re doing this. What a neat thing.

  • Deanna February 1, 2012, 7:44 pm

    Your PL pages are awesome. LOVE love your day in my life. Sounds like me. Thanks for the nice words on my blog! Dee

  • Sarah February 2, 2012, 5:38 am

    Okay this has got to be the coolest PL I’ve seen. Dang. You are the uber PL’er!

  • Sarah February 2, 2012, 5:41 am

    I had to pin this wicked coolness. And I only pin digi. See what you made me do? :-O

  • SpilledInkGuy February 2, 2012, 11:28 am

    Far to proud of myself for ‘discovering’ that clicking on above photos = being magically transported to your flicker stream…
    realizing I still haven’t left a comment on linked post
    still later-ish:
    go back a page, go back a page, go back a page…

  • alonewithcats February 2, 2012, 11:33 pm

    6/5 stars for “Baby Mama”? I cut Tina Fey a lot of slack too, because she’s my god, but not that much slack.
