...Happiness, yes, Tom was certainly right about that.

  • My Favorite Words.

    'The LORD will fight for you; you need only to be still' -Exodus 14:14

    "You've got to know your limitations. I found out what mine were when I was twelve. I found out that there weren't too many limitations, if I did it my way." - Johnny Cash

    "Courage is the ladder that all virtues are mounted on." - Mr. R. Crosby Kemper, Jr.

    "It's your choice, Ace. People can live a hundred years without really living for a minute. You climb up here with me, it's one less minuteyou haven't lived." - Gilmore Girls

    "Faith, it does not make things easy, it makes them possible" - Luke 1:37

    "I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the lights that I have." -Abraham Lincoln

    "Writing is a struggle against silence." - Carlos Fuentes

    "At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don't really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important happy ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you, and once in a while people may even take your breath away." - Grey's Anatomy

    "Imperfection is beauty. Madness is genius. And it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring. And when it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I'm already better than them." - Marilyn Monroe

    “It’s not that I believe everything happens for a reason. Some things are meant to be broken. Imperfect. Chaotic. It’s the universe’s way of providing contrast. There have to be a few holes in the road. It’s how life is." – Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever

    "Opportunity knocks; that doesn't mean you have to knock the door off the hinges." - Sam Herringshaw

    "Grace doesn’t depend on suffering to exist, but where there is suffering you will find grace in many facets and colors." – William P. Young, The Shack

    ‎"You're only given a little spark of madness. You mustn't lose it." - Robin Williams

    "I think I'd miss you even if I'd never met you."-The Wedding Date

    "If you don't even believe in the possibility of magic, you'll never ever find it." - Castle

So There’s That: Vol. 7

 {Sort of like  a “Friday Five” except it’s probably not Friday, and I gave up on the idea of a catchy alliteration. These are some bits and pieces of my glam #postgradlife.}

1. My vacuum cleaner ate my phone charger…

2.  Sisterhood Forever

 IMG_1662

Let’s talk about a few things here…
— The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants books and movies were me and  my besties Kayla and Richole FAVORITE when we were growing up. So the fact that one of its stars, Blake Lively, made the other three actresses the godmothers of her newborn just makes my forever-teenage heart so happy.

— Blake named her daughter James. I have this strange affection for using boy names for girls, so I think it’s fabulous.

— While I’m having an extreme fangirl moment I might as well also mention what I would give to have Blake Lively’s hair circa her “Gossip Girl” days…Is it possible to have a hair-spirit animal?

 

3. #PorkTips Video’s

This video was part of the last project I worked on during my time at the Kansas Pork Association. Although my role was extremely small in comparison, I am SO PROUD of the final product, especially after all the long talks and day dreaming we did about them. And I had so much fun working with 502 Media Group! Be sure to check the others out on the Kansas Pork Facebook page!

*Even my own personal baking stone makes a cameo in this one.

4.  #Wheatie Humor

5. Mat Kearney – Coming Home (Oregon)

Alright friends, we’re going to play pretend. We’re going to pretend that this video was not basically written for the University of Oregon, and that the music video does not feature Oregon football clips and Autzen stadium. And we’re going to forgive Mat Kearney for being an obsessed Ducks fan, because his music is too good to miss out on. And because once I got past all of that nonsense, I fell in LOVE with this song.

6. I live here…

Seriously though, I can’t get over it.
Last Friday night I visited the USDA farmer’s market where I bought some (amazing) bread for later and a pizza (who knew) and wondered down to the Washington Monument where my lap became my dinner table.

So, there’s that.
