Monday Musings

1. I had every intention of posting this on Friday but the day just got away from me.

2. Someone send help! I can't stop eating Mini Cadbury Eggs. My mom sent me home with a bag last weekend and I am embarrassed to say that they are all gone. That's what happens when you put them in a decorative bowl on the coffee table and mindlessly munch on them while working late at night.

3. My mom also sent me home with some kale from the farmers market. I tossed it with some good Parmesan, toasted pine nuts, fresh garlic, and olive oil. I literally could not get enough. It puts the big bags of kale from the grocery store to shame.

4. My roommate comes home today after being in China for two weeks. I can't wait for her to be back. 

5. Fortunately, this has been a good time for her to be gone. I've had three big events back go back so I've barely been at the apartment. Nothing like spending more time at the office than at home.

6. While these past two weeks have been insane from a work standpoint, I've found myself being energized by the long days and craziness. It is easy to get behind something that you love. I'm also thankful for my coworkers who keep me laughing along the way.

7. The office signed up for intramural softball. Hopefully our record will be better than dodge ball.

8. T-Swift has been back in full force lately. My commute is timed perfectly so I can listen to "Trouble" on the way to work and "All Too Well" on the way home.

9. I watched "About Time" last week. It might be one of my new favorites. 

10. Happy Monday friends! Here's to a great week.

Go Terriers!

Tonight the Wofford Terriers are taking on the Michigan Wolverines. This is our third time dancing in the last five years and I am hoping third time's the charm. Regardless of the outcome of the game (although my bracket will be messed up), I am proud of our team and their accomplishments. I also love all the press we have been getting. Here are some of my favorites:

Know Your Opponent: Michigan Wolverines
This one has gotten a lot of negative buzz on Facebook. I think it is hysterical.

The Onion says to pick Wofford!

Make sure you read the second paragraph and pick up some Wofford apparel if you live near OSU.

And listen to Jay the Great "Black and Gold."
Go Terriers!

Spring Fever

I am suffering from a major case of spring fever! The weather has been so dreary and cold the last few days. So while waiting on the sunshine and warmth, I have compiled a few of my favorite spring things.

Fun Facts Friday

1) It looks like all you are going to get from me the next few weeks is Fun Facts. I'll try to get back to regular posts soon but nothing is guaranteed.

2) We've had a lot of students visiting from Louisiana this week since it is Mardi Gras and their high schools are closed. One of our visitors gave me a King Cake at the end of my presentation. It was such a sweet surprise.

3) I got a Fit Bit this week. Wofford is doing a Fit to Give Challenge and employees are supposed to track their activity level over the next few weeks. I'm interested to see how it turns out.

4) It is hard to believe Hope is 15 and driving! The time goes by so quickly. I'll have to get her to cart me around next time I am home.
5) I can't get enough of this "Let it go/Let her go" mash-up.

6) This perfectly describes me when it comes to finding a song I like. I will listen to it on repeat for a few days and then stop listening to it all together.
7) This article is so true. I have little self-control when it comes to queso, cupcakes, and Chick-fil-A.

8) For Lent, I decided to give up criticism and work more on living out the fruits of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, and self-control). It's been a good reminder for me to read Galatians 5:22-23 every morning.

9) Sometimes I think I could write a book about my life experiences. There are some funny moments that make me wonder if they are actually real. Some highlights from this week include: what up and you're like a hedgehog cute but prickly.

10) Happy Friday!
