The current situation


You’ve heard before of dogs that have eaten homework.. but what about dogs that assisted with homework?

Yea, I know. In my dreams. I will, however, give her some credit for being a sweetie and laying on my feet as slowly made way to finishing my minerals research paper.

She is a crazy hyper dog, but she is the sweetest when she chills outs.

This weekend was spent doing a lot of school work, but I also had plenty of fun.

-I was lucky to have the opportunity to shadow a clinical dietitian for the day on Friday. It was a really cool experience, so much goes on in the hospital. I feel like there is so much to learn and I am itching to go back!

-We had a great night with our youth group hanging out by the fire, eating s’mores, and talking it up. I feel so lucky to be the wife of a youth pastor.

-MY VERY FAVORITE CANDY IS IN STORES NOW. Give me ALL the dark chocolate orange balls!


-Terry and I are doing the couch potato to 5k plan together. His goal is to get in better shape and my goal is to learn how to love running.

-We had a movie night Saturday, complete with stove top popcorn cooked in coconut oil. We watched Fun with Dick & Jane. It was cute.

-I’ve also been listening to BBC Live Lounge on YouTube and I am especially fond of the covers, like this one:

-Finally, I think this picture of me pretty sums up how I’m feeling: pleasant, but tired, and with my eyes and mind on things not on my to-do list.

And not to be forgotten- it’s THANKSGIVING week. Let’s live through this week with a heart of total gratitude for all that is around us.

  1. The dark chocolate oranges are one of my favorites too! And so is stove top popcorn!
    I am thankful for so many things this week, including you and your lovely blog!

  2. So many lovely things. I have so many fond youth group memories. My parents are both ministers so even when I was “past” the age, I often got to tag along for gatherings. Lucky that you get to do the same with Terry! Sadly, the one type of chocolate I detest is orange. Its sad – they always look so festive!

    1. How cool! I have so many great memories as a kid in the youth group I love being able to help others have the same experience. That’s too sad about the orange, but I will let you past since you are a lover of chocolate!

  3. THOSE DARK CHOCOLATE ORANGE BALLS ARE MY FAVORITE THINGS IN THE WORLD. Kate, you have no freaking idea how happy you just made me. I have been looking for those for YEARS. My grandma used to gift them to me but she is no longer around and no one in my family knew what I was talking about. OMG. I am literally dancing around the room, and I am about to call my mom. THANK YOU.

    Okay, back to normal self…. I love the selfie you ended this post with. You’re a beauty Kate!

  4. I’ve never tried Terry’s chocolate, but maybe I should add it to the #bucketlist. That’s great that you got to shadow a clinical RD – actually being in the hospital is such a strong learning experience. I hope you enjoyed it! Yay for finishing your research paper!

  5. That bowl of popcorn caught my eye right away, love me some popcorn! The chocolate oranges are a christmas tradition at my house, my grandmother always gives it to me as a gift so I can smack it on the table and serve it for the guests (or in my case I just eat pretty much most of it). Your dog is so cute, she must be such a happy presence to have around 🙂

  6. MMMM to those dark chocolate oranges!! So so good! I actually remake that combo a lot with my greek yogurt bowls. I add orange extract, a touch of vanilla stevia, and dark chocolate chips stirred into plain greek yogurt. Its BOMB!!
