Capturing Joy {sorta}

So guess who didn't take any pictures this week in order to show you? 
So seeing as I bombed on taking new pictures I will go find a few other old pictures either I took or found from various sources that will summarize what else makes me happy these days! Away we go.....

Starting with my LYS team taking 1st place last saturday! 
Well I didn't have any photos of my team all together so just the coaches.... 
(WOW I just don't take any pictures!) 
 We are so proud of them! 

This quote also makes me smile :)
Just because it's so true! 
But i'm allowed to because i'm a college student right? It's almost required. 

This boy also makes me happy
yes I will be sappy but it's the truth
{i was thinking about avoiding this weeks post because i didn't have any pictures but he reminded me that I hadn't posted yet today and then there was no getting it out of it} 

Aaaaand with Halloween just around the corner
If we get pumpkins this year I may attempt to carve mine like this :) 

There ya have it! I'll try to be better this week about taking new pictures! 
And in parting a verse that has been a driving force for my life.

It's all in God's hands and it'll work out :)

Linking up again to Living in Yellow!

Study Study Study

that is the life for me.... 
Of course I don't have any pictures of all the studying because i'm entirely too focused..... 
......and my camera batteries died. 
My classes are enjoyable and I'm doing well so far! 
It's funny how what you learn suddenly helps explain so much in life and I'm realizing just how everything overlaps. What i hear about in Psychology also works for Communication and for Stats (sorta). It is helping to solidify everything in my head! 
Studying has also been a good not so bad time because it means going to new coffee shops with friends and enjoying a good cup of coffee :) 
Also a big part of my life has been the 30 day shred.... 
..::enter doom music::..
My cali girl and I have been working hard just about everyday. 
{except saturdays, we can't seem to get together sat and work out}

Our downstairs neighbors actually came up the first day and complained about how loud it was! 
Apparently every time we move our floor/their ceiling squeaks *really* loudly. 
Now i'm afraid to walk or breathe too loudly lest they can hear it and bothers them! 
{over exaggeration here but still we are super careful now}
So we worked out a deal that we would only do the shred during a set amount of time. 
We just finished our 10 days on level 1 and started today on level 2 - wow it's tough! But I can already tell that i'm stronger which is great! Now just to get those 6 pack abs!! 

That would be most of my life as of right now. Throw in a bunch of laughs, long talks, baked goods, and good friends and thats what i got going on!  
Oh and getting to see the boy this last saturday, finally! I was so happy to see him and talk to him face to face again :) I could go on and on about what a wonderful day it was and I did to my roommate! 
It was such a treat and I am grateful for every minute :)
Just how excited are you that November is almost here?!

Another week of Capturing Joy!

Is it sad that I haven't posted except to share joy in my week? 
I dare say no it is not sad! 
At least I'm writing and it's happy! 
Ok moving on.... 
My lovely roommates and I headed out for a harvest party which even though there ended up being only about 12 people there it was a complete blast! We had so much fun and just were able to de-stress for a bit before midterms! 
One of my most favorite little places in Seattle!! If you can't read it says 'Royal Grinders' which translates to 'Super Amazing Food' They have the most delicious grinders (a type of sandwich) and *astounding* gelato!! 
It's a good thing there are so many hills here so I keep off those pounds :)
And my coffee girl and I went for a sunny day walk and for some yummy Starbucks :) 
It was fun to talk and laugh in the last warm rays of the year. 

I am just so happy to be back and learning and laughing with great people! 
There you have another week of joy! 

Once again linking up with Living in Yellow!

Capturing Joy!

Wow its been such a long time since I last posted! I'm starting something new on this little blog here. I am going to be linking up with the blog Living in Yellow
Which is a lovely, spunky fun time read! 
Anywho.... every friday she does a post about what brings joy to life. 
So here are some items that make me smile! I hope they brighten your day too :)
Scenes from my walk home from Queen Anne yesterday.
 With the leaves changing and a cool breeze in the air :) 
Yes a shoe shot with the lovely leaves on the ground. I felt a little silly stopping in the middle of the sidewalk to just take a picture of my feet hehe. 
I attended my Great-Grandma's funeral last saturday and though it is sad we know she is up singing and  dancing in Heaven. 
Grandma would make afghan quilts for everyone for births, weddings, or other special events and so here is a photo with everyone and their beautiful afghans. Ok now go away tears! 
And on an unrelated note I had my first paying customers this week! Yay! It's the little things right? Wait... that's a *BIG* thing for me! 
Well happy friday :) there are a few of the things bringing a smile to my face lately 
now go find the joy in your life :) 
I'm off to class!
