...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. 12

{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. One Day at a Time

FullSizeRender

The last two week’s since I returned home from Guatemala have been pretty stressful at work. Everything turned out great, they were just a bit stressful…
I was humored that the next page on my quote book knew exactly how I was feeling.

2. Happy 25th Birthday Megan

megan

“Maybe our girlfriends are our soul mates and guys are just people to have fun with.”
– Carrie Bradshaw

From age 18 to 25, we’ve been asking ourselves lately “how did we get here?” Not sure that there’s an actual answer to that, but I know it involves a lot of cheesy memories.

3. Wheel of Musical Impressions

So I’m not really an Ariana Grande fan, but seriously, I have to admit that her musical impressions were really impressive, and funny.

4. T-Swift Love

Tonight my bestie Megan is going to the Taylor Swift concert in Kansas City with tickets that she won on the radio! The grand plan was that I was going to fly there and go with her. Unfortunately it didn’t work out, (but I am going to visit Kansas for a three-day weekend in October!) Over the last few months I have become a little obsessed with all of the guests that she continues to feature at each of her stops, and I can wait to hear about who shows up at this show!

6. K-State Football

People, college football is BACK!

So there is this…

…and then there is this guy.

7. Coach Ego

Hermiston hires Ego as interim boys basketball coach

Almost everything that I love about sports and particularly the game of basketball is because of my Grampy. No matter what it was that my sister and I were involved in from basketball, soccer, cross country and golf to even dance team and FFA, he always played the role of coach and cheerleader, investing in us the best way he could to make sure that we came out on the other side as better people. When I decided to go to college at K-State he immediately became a Wildcats fan, learning stats and hearing big news even before I would hear it on campus. People usually knew that he was the only person whose texts I would respond to during games. Even living so far away from home it allowed us to remain close and share something we both loved. On the outside he’s super passionate about sports, and while I’m very excited to finally see him in the coach’s seat, its not really about that. My Grampy taught us that sports are about investing in other people and challenging yourself. They are about hard work, discipline and committing yourself to something you love.

These kids really don’t know what they are in for this season. I love you Gramps! I can’t wait to discuss your team for a change!

8. Ready for Fall

IMG_2818

 It’s slowly starting to feel like fall in D.C. and I am loving this candle that I picked up at Target. It has three layers: pumpkin nutmeg, bonfire nights and vanilla dolce. So far I’m loving it.

9. Basic

Just humor me, and take the quiz. I promise a good laugh.
You know you want to.

Quiz: How Basic Are You Really?

So, There’s That.
Cheers!
