Five Things I Love This Week

1. So True:


2. Julie’s blog is still my absolute favorite. She is funny, positive, and inspires me to live a healthy life!

3. Wadswords has a pinterest! Follow me if you want more pictures of puppies and cupcakes in your life.

4. Last night I finally saw Anna Karenina and I absolutely loved it! It is stunning. Jude Law’s performance was incredible and as I was a huge fan of Domhnall Gleeson as Levin. The set and the costumes were dazzling. I could not get enough of every single one of Keira Knightley’s outfits. Seriously, go see this movie!

5. Watching this video on repeat. Beyoncé for President.

I had a wonderful Christmas and I am really excited about getting back into blogging in the new year. Wadswords is back! For real this time.

How to Live Without Irony

This is an interesting opinion piece from The New York Times about the dangers of too much irony in our lives.

Wadswords is back!! It took me a little while to get back in the swing of things after the craziness of the election, but I am so excited to get back to blogging. We are heading into one of  my favorite times of the year and I am so ready. Tomorrow I am going home! It has been a long time and I miss my family so much. It will be great to get a little break before coming back to school for the final weeks of the semester.   


Happy Monday everyone!!

I need to remember this

Five Things I Love This Week!

1. Obama on the Daily Show

Two of my favorite people!

2. The G.O.P.’S Feminine Mystique by Samantha Bee

This editorial by Samatha Bee is funny and very disturbing.

3. Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

Not surprisingly, I am obsessed with all things pumpkin these days and I have to try this baked oatmeal from Kath Eats Real Food.

4. I know this is random, but I just keep seeing people walking dogs and I really want to play with one..

Black lab

Petting an animal is one of the best forms of stress relief. Too bad they don’t allow pets in dorms because we could all use some puppy love to get us through midterms!

5. Run Into Fall Playlist

running playlist for fall 2012

New music is great motivation to go for a run!

Binders Full of Women?


I am so fired up after the debate last night! All joking aside, last night which candidate is going to be the best advocate for women in the White House. I think Obama said it best here:

“You know, a major difference in this campaign is that Governor Romney feels comfortable having politicians in Washington decide the health care choices that women are making,” Obama said. “I think that’s a mistake. In my health care bill, I said insurance companies need to provide contraceptive coverage to everybody who’s insured, because this is not just a health issue, it’s an economic issue for women. It makes a difference. This is money out of that family’s pocket.”

Thank you Mr. President!
