Med Students Flooding the Food Bank!

Med Students Flooding the Food Bank!

As a part of First Year Orientation at OSU’s Med School, one afternoon is spent in what most people would call “community service”. Last year at this time, I was outside cutting brush…This year we decided to keep it all indoors! The group I got to “lead” was phenomenal. The thing about getting a group […]

A True Friend

A True Friend

Preface: No. This is not a cliche post about how Jesus is your only “true friend”. It might be a little mushy, but it’s not that…. Like I mentioned before in the entry about her shower, the best friend just got married. The wedding was beautiful. Hilarious. Wonderful. Successful. And my daughter was an absolute […]

DIY: Lace Bridal Shower

DIY: Lace Bridal Shower

So, we spent most of this past week in Reno, Nevada, getting my best friend married! For us thinkers, experiences like this cause lots of- well- thinking. About marriage. About Friendship. About all sorts of stuff. I’m sure when I get some more processing done, I’ll be able to put it all down in writing- […]

“I’m in the ER…With My Ferret”

“I’m in the ER…With My Ferret”

We were watching the verdict of a rather high profile case with my grandparents the other night. My very wise grandfather went on a rant. (I come by it honest…) “It’s like I always said, if you always tell the truth, you don’t have to remember what you said. And if you do what’s right, […]

Country Livin’

There are some things that living in smaller towns provides that living in cities simply can’t. Tractor rides…. The unashamedness of wearing hats… Feeding animals… Homemade Ice Cream… And the kindness of strangers… In the convenience store in the nearest town… Who sold us the vanilla from what they had in their kitchen…. For 27 […]

Thank You From The Parents

Thank You From The Parents

Mom and dad were absolutely blown away by the response for their upcoming anniversary surprise– and for those that are still coming in! They wanted to give a shout out before they started all the individual “Thank-you’s”. So- here they are! We’d like to say a huge thank you to all who participated in our […]

Speaking the Truth in Love is Not…

Speaking the Truth in Love is Not…

I always tell people who ask me what I think “Do you really want to know? Because I will tell you if you really want to know…” And then I do not hesitate to speak the truth if I am asked. Very rarely is it the time to speak without being asked. Yes, if I […]

It Just Isn’t That Simple

It Just Isn’t That Simple

Remember those days when a box and some sticks were all that you needed to be entertained for hours? When your greatest fear was that you were having spinach for dinner? And answers like this actually got you an A? Man, those were the days. And things were so black and white. Don’t steal. Don’t […]

It is Finished.

It is Finished.

It is finished. Year one of medical school is over…along with year one of motherhood. Talk about Bittersweet at its finest. First things first. Cheese sticks and Dr. Pepper from Sonic (because that’s how I roll). Now that I’m sitting on my couch—in a completely quiet house—you would think that I would be running around […]

Snapple

Snapple

Did you ever drink Snapple? What was your favorite flavor? Did you ever get sick of learning the same 3 facts over and over and over on your band trip where you were on a charter bus from Oklahoma to Florida? Or even better for choir to New York?? (Not that I have personal experience […]
