  • Rules for a Joyful Life (pt. 1)

    I don’t have a part two planned, but I figure everything in this world is a work-in-progress, so I can only imagine my definition of joy will be, too. I am not rich, famous, or an instagram model. I am, though, the happiest I have ever been, and have been hit with a couple “I […]

  • On Holiday

    My, oh, my! This has been a wonderfully eventful uneventful fourth of July break! It started on the 4th with a 3:15 am wake up, load up, and drive out to the Tulsa International Airport. From there, a brief layover in Dallas before I finally got my butt back to A&M! Daniel and Collin picked […]

  • Update!

    Oh! Minor update: So I’ve started looking at houses a little to buy in the event I end up here in Bartlesville. So far, I like what I’m seeing! The jist is basically if you’re willing to settle for older homes, you can get unnecessary square footage. This is exciting for me, obviously, because I’m […]

  • Houston Trip So Far.

    Holy cow, you guys. What an eventful few days! Here’s the play-by-play: Wednesday: meet at 6:20 am to fly to Houston on the company jet. Arrive at the Houston complex (in Katy) around 10 am. Get guidelines for our major presentation, eat lunch, and tour the amazing workout facilities. Hang out with the CIO, meet […]

  • Big Moment.

    Big moment: I just got my first “so I’ve been reading your blogs and you’ve motivated me to get the ole butt in shape” comment. I don’t know if you know how tremendous this is for me. Particularly because the more people I feel rely on me (in a sense), the more pressure I feel […]

  • Ok.

    So day 1 & 2 went swimmingly. I met the couple I’m going to be living with this summer. Not only are they adorable, but their house is as well. My room is a pleasant and calming shade of blue, complete with a full/queen bed adorned with camel, white, and pale blue accents. Camel colored […]

  • Onward, ho!

    “The time has come,” the Walrus said…” …to move to Oklahoma. Last night, I spent my last night “living” at my parents house for the foreseeable future. We loaded up my car, again, and got everything ready for the big trip. I saw Erica, Callie, Sigi, her boyfriend (Daniel), and Chance before I left, kissed […]

  • Miles to Go

    “…I’ve got promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep, miles to go before I sleep.” –Robert Frost Well, the truth is that the fast pace of life has hit me all at once. Two weeks ago I was working on finals, then I was packing and cleaning and prepping for graduation/moving most […]

  • Never can say goodbye.

    Well, that’s it. I’ve moved out of my apartment, loaded down my car with anything & everything that would fit, kissed my new fiancé goodbye, and left College Station for good. Talk about closing one chapter & opening another! A week or so ago I was a relatively carefree college student just trying to graduate. […]

  • Get excited!

    Well, it seems I’ve been engaged! Apparently, unbeknownst to me, almost everyone I know was at Daniel’s house all day yesterday preparing for the proposal. There were white roses, candles, streamers, and pictures of Daniel and I from when we were 15-16. I got to his apartment for a fancy dinner with my friends, opened […]
