...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. 11

{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. Happy Birthday Mom!

With my Mom at Kyla's wedding.

With my Mom at Kyla’s wedding.

 This lady.
Whoever says that parents can’t (or shouldn’t) become your friends are just plain wrong.
She’s funny, sassy, hard working and has a heart of gold.
Today is her birthday and I wish more than anything that I was spending the day with her.

2. Buzzfeed Roommate Video

After I could see straight from laughing so hard I cried I started to get concerned that someone was spying on me and my roommates back in college. My college experience was better than I could have ever asked for and it was because of Kyla and Megan. We had some great laughs and this video, as embarrassing as some of it is to admit, just about perfectly describes what life was like in our apartment.

3. #JanciandJordyDoVegas

Catching a few last rays.

Catching a few last rays.

Last weekend I took my sister to Vegas for her 21st birthday.
I wrote about it and shared some pictures in yesterday’s post.

4. James Corden Carpool Karaoke

I’m really not sure why I am just now getting around to including this. I LOVE James Corden. I’m a Doctor Who fan and his character “Craig” is by far my favorite reoccurring guest. I was pretty excited when he got his own talk show except for the fact that its the late late show, which is a bit much for me. So I watch a few every now and then online and catch a few clips on YouTube. My favorite bit is his carpool karaoke. Now I have never been a Biebs fan but people, this video is hysterical. I also really enjoy his carpools with Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson.

5. Food For Thought

6. Friday Jam Session

Friday Jam Session
I started up my Friday Jam posts again after realizing that it was something that I missed, but decided to change the format a bit to hopefully make it a bit easier to stay consistent. So my question is, what are your thoughts? What questions need to be added to the list? What should definitely stay?

7. Good luck Janci!

Jancz & Sissy

My baby sister is leaving home today for her senior year of college at Lewis-Clark State. She’s a kinesiology major and on the women’s golf team. We’re proud of you Janci L’Amour! Good luck this year!

8. K-State Football
Ok two things…
So Jordy Nelson was before my time as a Kansan and K-Stater, but like most things in Kansas, that is a detail that has become a part of the grey area where I feel like I have always been connected to Kansas in some way. And even if that weren’t true, how could you not like Jordy Nelson?
See what I mean in this article:
An NFL player who has made $28 million spends 12 hours a day working on his family farm in the off-season

And speaking of K-State Football…
