...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. 10

 {Sort of like  a “Friday Five”  or a “Life Lately” 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. See past posts HERE}

1. Hermiston Watermelons

When my friend Julia sent me this picture I seriously did a little happy dance. PEOPLE, you can now get Hermiston Watermelons in Great Bend, Kansas! My hometown in Oregon is known as the “Watermelon Capitol,” and we are sure proud of it. They are used everywhere as our city’s logo, and up until recently were featured on our water tower, painted by my own grandma. So essentially, if this had happened while I was at K-State, I would have driven across the state just to have a little piece of my hometown.

2. If it is good enough for Harrison Ford…

I said in my last So There’s That, I shared an article on gluten, mentioning my thoughts on sharing things online. Well on a MUCH lighter note, a co-worker sent me this quiz…

Should You Go Gluten Free?

And my friend Jordan who works for wheat in Kansas sent me this SnapChat that made my week…

3. Commuting in D.C.

Because these are the conversations that my co-workers and I have on Thursday mornings.

4. West Coast, Best Coast

On Tuesday I recapped my July travel and shared a few pictures I took up at my family’s cabin with my new camera.

Sumpter Valley.

My Happy Place.

5. Memes 

I just love a good, relatable meme. These were recently added to my collection on my bulletin board at work.

6. Bachelor Nation

So I am a shameless Bachelor Nation fan. It is the perfect mix of crazy, funny and watching a chick flick. I have watched it off and on over the years since its beginning but my friend Brandi and I have been faithful since Sean Lowe’s season (K-State love!), and even though I moved out to D.C. we still have a standing FaceTime date each week for it. We also may or may not fill out brackets…
Now that this summer’s season has wrapped up, they have moved on to the second installment of Bachelor in Paradise.
Guys, it’s terrible and I can’t stop watching.
Honestly, I spent the entire premiere earlier this week cringing and hiding behind my wine glass. What made it worth it was the “After Paradise” live after show that follows it featuring the host Chris Harrison, cast from the show and guest celebrity (superfan) commentators. The premiere featured Scandal’s Katie Lowes and Joshua Malina!
It’s like the perfect cherry on top of a bowl of ice cream that you don’t actually want to finish.

Still not convinced? Then check out this gal’s weekly blog post recaps. They are HILARIOUS regardless if you watch the show or not.

7. Office Wars

Basically every lady can relate, the warmer it is outside, the colder your office tends to be, resulting in cardigans in August and a never-ending war over the thermostat. Well my office is no different, so when one of my co-workers sent this article around I thought, Yes! I can get behind this argument!

8. #RunHappy

IMG_2485

I’ve been overdue for new running shoes and ripping a hole in my old ones while hiking kind of sealed the deal. I LOVE my new Brooks GTS. I haven’t had a pair for Brooks since I was in high school and I had forgotten how light they are, not to mention how they fit my wide feet so much better. Happy running is in my future!

9. The Bodester

My cousin Bodie (who was recently in front of my camera A LOT) is adorable. WordPress doesn’t allow me to upload a video directly, so I am linking to my Facebook page. While we were up at the cabin in July he really want to tell me what the fox says…

Watch HERE.
So. Stinking. Cute.

So, There’s That.

Cheers!
