No Excuses, but I am so LUCKY

I have no excuses for why it's taken me so long to check in with the blog. My husband was traveling for business during my birthday week and I was overwhelmed by how sweet my family, friends, coworkers and classmates were to help me celebrate the big 2-5! I was taken out to lunch or dinner every single day that week. New friends brought me beautiful homemade desserts. Phone calls and texts and sweet birthday cards made me feel so very special.

And then I came home from my Thursday night graduate class at 10:30 pm and my husband was there {home early as a surprise!} with flowers and hugs. I am a lucky girl.

My birthday was flanked on both sides by University of Missouri football games. The Saturday before my birthday Mizzou was playing Kansas State University in my home-town so I got to celebrate with my parents, sister and JJ's Dad.
How amazing is my little sister's laugh?

The weekend after my birthday was Mizzou's homecoming football game in Columbia so I got to celebrate with my college friends.

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today I'm 25! I always thought that sounded old until I actually became 25. Last weekend I got to celebrate with my family and this weekend I'm celebrating with my friends. I'm a lucky girl!!

Wise Man

While I never owned an Iphone like most of America, this quote from Steve Jobs is really resonating with me. I love the job I currently have the honor to do, and am excited that I am loving the topics of my grad school classes {hopefully meaning I'll love my next job too}.

my weekend in pictures

It feels like it has been ages since I had a weekend at home when husband and I weren't traveling- so I took full advantage this weekend. I went to the historic fall festival in Weston, tried a new restaurant I've been eyeing, had my first pumpkin flavored coffee of the season AND saw my favorite singer in concert.  I wish I could have one more day!
