Pinch Me

Hi friends!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Happy fuhreakily deakily FRIDAY! We made it!

Did you guys miss me?!


I really don't even know where to start with this post.  There is SO much going on over here.

Let's start from the beginning...

Earlier this week, I sat for the Bar exam.

The whole process, as you know, was a doozie.

Over 2 months, and 600 plus hours of studying, I was about to lose my mind.


Think the I-can't-sleep-my-face-is-breaking-out-and-I'm-about-to-pull-all-of-my-hair-out kind of crazy.

Yikes.  It wasn't pretty.

My nerves were clearly at an all time high, and all I could think about for the last few days leading up to the exam was studying.  Hence the no-post since last Wednesday (I know, I'm sorry, I missed you!).

So, how did it go??

It was...okay.

I was most nervous about the first day - because it was essays all day, there were about a bagillion topics they could have tested us over, and we had no clue what it they were going to ask.

Surprisingly, I felt like I rocked the first day.

I was in the zone, and even with the unfamiliar things I was able to muster up some knowledge from the deep down places in my brain.

I was so relieved when the first day was over, and I wasn't too worried about the second day, because it was multiple choice, we knew the topics, and I had done about every practice problem in the world.

Surprisingly, I did not feel so hot after the second day.

Thankfully, I have been assured that this is a completely normal feeling.

So, I'm gonna just ride that assurance out until the beginning of October (that's right, we have to wait until OCTOBER!), when I will find out if I *cross-you-fingers-knock-on-wood* passed.


I went out after the exam with a bunch of my girlfriends from law school to Hubbard Inn to celebrate.  It was a blast of and everything was delicious.

{If you go there, you HAVE to get the Scallops.  Life changing.}

After the mini-celebration, I woke up yesterday not really knowing what to do with myself.

I told myself I was going to lay on the couch and do absolutely nothing. Catch up on DVR and order some unhealthy takeout, you know the gist.

Just as I was playing "lazy song" on repeat getting ready to leisurely write my post, my plans for the day changed.

In a really great way.

I won't go too much into detail...but...

I got a JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Ohhhh my gosh, you guys.

This was, to say the least, very unexpected, very relieving, and very exciting, all at the same time.

I don't think it's all even set in yet.  It's so surreal and I am thrilled.

I will start my new job as an associate as soon as we get back from...

MAUI! :)

That's right, we are going to MAUI for our vacation, in case you guys couldn't already gather that a Hawaiian vacation was on the plans for the post-Bar vacation celebration.

We leave tomorrow morning, and we are SO pumped.

I feel like the weight of the world is off my shoulders, and I mean really, what better way to celebrate?!

So, to get me pumped up for my big trip, and you pumped up for a big weekend-o-fun, how about a playlist?!
