testing 1, 2, 3…

February 29th, 2012 · 20 Comments

This Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of this week are basically miserable for me. 

As you guys have probably picked up by now, I’m taking the Texas Bar Exam.  Each state licenses attorneys differently, so when I moved here, I hadn’t practiced long enough to be eligible to waive in.  So, after practicing law for several years, it seems that I have to start back over… with the Bar Exam.

And that’s fine.  It’s a tough test, but I’ve studied incredibly hard — probably harder than when I passed in New York!  And in two more days (I can literally count the hours at this point), this insane period will be over. 

So send good luck thoughts and prayers my way through Thursday, and I’ll be back on Friday with pictures much prettier than my (epic, if I do say so myself) flashcards. 

Thanks guys!

From the Ruffian finale this morning.  Just beautiful.

Now I need some coffee, because it is seriously early!

welcoming in 2012

January 2nd, 2012 · 4 Comments

Happy new year! 

I don’t know if anyone else is starting the year this way, but I feel a little overwhelmed!  The next two months are so booked up with personal, professional, and important things in my life that I’m struggling to figure out how it’s all going to fit.

And…. breathe. 

Maybe some of you guys are like me, waking up on January 1 with a list of things so monumental and yet totally pressing that you start to freak out a little!  Over New Year’s weekend I managed to hold my own as a bridesmaid in a wedding across the country (gorgeous), cram in about 14 hours of lectures and 6 hours of practice tests for the Texas Bar Exam, take two outfit photos, and create amazing lamb chops in our new sous-vide machine.  And yet somehow I feel frustrated with myself…. because I didn’t squeeze in any time to work on the new book.  Ugh!

So maybe my New Year’s resolution should be to just take things as they come, do the best as I can do, and keep hold of my sanity during this really busy stretch. 

(Which includes February Fashion Week.  And I’ve already booked my ticket!)

Water vest and ABS bracelet, gifted from Rue La La (my favorite), Alexis Bittar gold bangle, gifted Juicy Couture bag (last year — similar here) Theyskens’ Theory shorts, Via Spiga boots, Chloe glasses (I mat have prescription lenses done in these!)
