...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. 14

{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. Welcome to the World Wesley Ray

Wesley Ray

My childhood best friend Richole finally welcomed her little guy into the world on March 4! Isn’t he adorable! I am so excited for this next season of life and know that she and Dustin are going to be great parents. Unfortunately I will not be able to meet Baby Wes until I am home again in July, so for now I am Richole and her family’s number one Facebook stalker…

2. A Mentor and A Friend

There is no other experience in my life thus far that has been more rewarding, humbling or encouraging, than AFA, and I am so thankful that Russ Weathers is someone I personally call a mentor and a friend. As a student on the leadership team, we always ended our day by each sharing a “word of the day” and what it meant to us. To hear Russ choose words as simple as “friendship” and “teamwork” to describe his career, reminds me why agriculture and the people who make it their livelihood are things that I believe in with my whole heart. It is my goal to look back many years from now and be able to say, like Russ, that I have loved every job I have ever had because of the friendship and teamwork around me. Thank you Russ, for sharing so much of yourself with us and dedicating your life to students.

Love brunches with new friends.

4. Scaredy Cats

I am pretty sure 75% of the random stuff that my  sister and I send each other are funny cat videos…. SO. FUNNY.

5. Can You Name All 50 of These 80’s Movies From a Single Image

Because I can, and I did.
It is my favorite movie era, and I don’t know if my mother has ever been more proud of me ace-ing a test.
Take the quiz here.

7. Excuse Me While I Fan-Girl

The Bachelor is one of the few ridiculous things that I have no shame in being a fan of. It’s the perfect combo of hopeless romantic and quality mockery. My friend Brandi and I have watched it together since we met in college and consider our live-tweeting  a serious sport. Now that I live in D.C. we FaceTime and watch it together that way.

Obviously, our favorite season was our fellow K-Stater (and football player), Sean Lowe. During the most recent season’s finale, we both tweeted images of tweets from Sean’s season that came up on our Timehop apps, and about died when he responded.

8. Hammy-Downs

Most people would tell you that my sister and I are opposite of each other in a lots of ways. This includes the fact that while writing is my favorite thing in the world… Janci, not so much. Her grades in college are WAY BETTER than mine ever were (she’s on the Dean’s list almost every semester), but I still edit most of her papers. She’s not going to happy about this but I literally teared up from laughing so hard at her error on “hand-me downs.”

9. Criminal Minds

http://canstatic.cbs.com/chrome/canplayer.swf?pid=ZR9MRXIhgoBQ&partner=cbs&gen=1

I’ve spent the last three weeks thinking that Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds was going to be killed off the show. Of course, this last week just as I am calming myself back down, the story leads to him just plain leaving.

Friends, as an owner of every single season and an obnoxious super fan, it was just brutal.

10. National Ag Day

One of my favorite days of the year, and this year was another success! I love the industry that I work in!

11. Snaps and Screenshots

A couple of randoms  from my phone lately that make me smile.

12. Easter Sunrise Service

IMG_2646

This past weekend for Easter I attended the Sunrise Service at the Lincoln Memorial. It was a pretty early morning as I got there shortly before 6, and it was a little disappointing that it was so overcast that we didn’t get a beautiful sunrise. But aside from that, it was a pretty cool experience. There wasn’t a formal service, but a few pastors gave short messages and led a few prayers. Most of the morning was spent in song. Another reason I’ll never get over all of the unique things that happen in this city.

13. Obnoxious BFF Memes

IMG_3900

I am sometimes concerned by how Buzzfeed seems to know my life.
But more importantly,  I am SO EXCITED for my girls weekend trip to New York City with Megan this upcoming weekend.

If you follow me on any social media, consider yourself warned…

So, There’s That.

Cheers!
