I would like to thank...

Oklahoma for the 58 degree weather, Vampire Weekend, Bishop Allen, Empire of the Sun, La Roux and of course my girl Brit for the musical boost while I took advantage of this amazing day and went running outside. I would also like to thank my body for being able to dance and run at the same time. It's a life skill, many hours of practice were involved. :)

Ah! Life is good!

We also got the news that our visas are done and waiting for us in Dallas. hip hip hoooray! We'll be in Sao Paulo by Friday!!

have you guys seen this?

This is a wonderful idea! I wish every big company would give back to the world like this. This might be enough to switch me from Coke to Pepsi. Might.

words to live by

When I'm having a tough time abiding by my new year's resolutions I hop on over to this blog. The daily inspiration gives me the strength to keep to my goals, one day at a time.

Today, Have Your Cake featured the Lulemon manifesto. I loved it so much I thought it deserved a second posting!

my awesome husband is 25!!!

Today is my dear Grant's twenty-fifth birthday! I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "How did Grant get to be such an old man???" You know what? I agree. How did he get so old? I'm kidding Grant.

I was going to put my list of 25 things that I love about Grant on here, but I decided it was just for him.
Happy birthday sweetheart, you are the best! I'm so happy you're mine!

btw, the above picture is from our recent trip to australia.

The New Year

Yes my friends I realize that we are already five days into this glorious year, but I can just tell that it's going to be a good one.

This year is going to be full of big changes for Grant and I. We have already moved to Oklahoma, I'm deciding what to do with the rest of my life, we're no longer irresponsible college students: we are officially growing up!

I decided to make the most of this new start and make some serious new years resolutions. I'm going to be better person this year. Just watch me.

A friend of mine split her goals into four categories, and it was inspiring. Mine are below.


half marathon April 10
incorporate yoga into more of my workouts
no sweets

read more worthwhile books (I'm always open to suggestions)

more prayer in my life. there is always room.
scripture study or religious book daily

no raising my voice in anger
don't limit myself because of fear-do things that make me scared.
learn to be a better cook

My dear friend Kristen Moore gave me the sweetest Christmas gift this year. Part of it was a journal with this quote written in it:

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page."
-St. Augustine

Thank you Kristen, those are certainly good words to live by! Grant and I are starting the year off right with a trip to Brazil!!! We leave January 21 and we couldn't be more excited!! I anyone has any suggestions on things we just cannot miss please let me know.

Here's to a new year!
