What Makes Me Happy

Friday, August 22, 2014


I'm reading The Alchemist right now and it puts me in such a good mood. If you haven't read it, I recommend you do, there's a reason it's been translated into at least sixty different languages. It's all about enjoying the journey and finding your personal legend in life. "It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting."- One of my favorite lines in the book.

Wanna know what else makes me happy? This ridiculous photo I just took of Harlow. This is typically how our mornings go. I start in the living room with my coffee and answer emails and write posts while he sits next to me and makes drunk faces.


In the morning he also likes to do"sticky tongue." It's this weird thing he does where he likes to act like he's licking himself but he actually just lets his tongue hang out on his arm for a good ten minutes while he makes bizarre morning yawn noises. Harlow only seems to get more vocal by the day. One of these times I think he's just going to start talking to me.


And since I mentioned coffee I'll just ahead and say it. I am completely obsessed with my new Keurig, as obsessed as I imagine most of you were five years ago when everyone else jumped on this train. Per the usual, I'm late to the game. I've been using the same $15 Target coffee maker I got in college, so this new thing is like amazing to me. There's no messy filters to deal with!!! Mind--> blown.

And as you can see Keurig just knew I was a Husker fan so they sent me some school spirit with it as well. They're removable decals you can find here for almost every school, perfect for those early morning tailgates if I do say so myself.


Speaking of tailgates... The first college football game is officially one week away! I AM SO EXCITED. Husker football season season is here! And to be honest I'm so blown away by the reception with the Talk Herbie To Me shirts, I've shipped them all over the country (and even to Germany) and that makes me just burst with Husker pride. I absolutely can't wait to see everyone rocking them on game day.

As for today, that's all I've got. Friday is calling my name. Have a great weekend!

  5. I've never read The Alchemist, but I'll add it to my list.

  6. The Alchemist is one of the best books I ever read. My first impression was that it is too simple. I used to say Paolo Coelho is a greedy writer - he only uses one piece of wisdom per book. But then I realized that this one though per book strategy actually allowes the reader to fully understand the meaning of the book. Enjoy!

  7. Those decals are amazing! I wish my college had them, but sadly we are too small and nerdy.

  9. A friends suggested I read The Alchemist before I started my own business a few years ago. It was some of the best advice I've received in my life.

    Not to get all stalker, but I've made note of a few books you have laying around in pictures (Oh my gosh I sound creepy), or have mentioned, and you should totally do a post of your favorites. I'd be really curious as to your picks.
