It’s winter in Dallas finally. We had some sleet and frozen rain fall from the sky and schools closed for 2 days. I went to work on the second of the 2 “snow days,” and there was so little traffic that I wish EVERY day was a fake snow day for the rest of the city. (more…)
It’s that time of year again! Time for shopping and fighting to get the last parking spot in a half mile radius of the mall. Time for getting red sparkly nail polish on your fingers AND toes because you can. And of course, time to bake & send and receive & eat 3 dozen delicious cookies! (more…)
One year ago today I became a real life lawyer.
Yup. I found out I passed the Texas Bar Exam on Halloween 2013. Nice of them to make the anniversary so easy to remember, right?
Have you ever watched that show on TLC (or maybe A&E?) about hoarders?
Just like an hour of people being amazed at how much stuff someone can accumulate and fighting with them about how, no, they don’t actually need every newspaper printed since 1989?
Here’s a secret: I can’t bear to watch Hoarders because I’m terrified that I will become/already am one.
Well. We’ve been at this thing for 2 years now, and neither of us have diabetuhs. So…major accomplishment, I believe.
But no really! 2 years! When I was 2 years old, the internet wasn’t even a THING, and now look. We can come on here and let the whole wide world of web know all the super important, sophisticated, grown-up things that go on in our brains. I don’t even know what the internet would be like without us. (more…)
Every time I go to the grocery store, I buy a pound of butter and a box of Kashi Go Lean Crunch (Honey Almond Flax edition).
Sometimes, I overestimate my ability to move through the perishables I buy. Like, last time I went to the store, I also bought 18 pounds of grapefruit. I didn’t mean to… I just picked up a big bag of grapefruit because they were the right size and way cheaper than the ones they were selling individually. I made it through about 13 pounds before they started going bad.
I eat queso for dinner sometimes. Just queso. And tortilla chips, of course.
Just a smattering of facts. Comin’ atcha from your favorite law student.
Well I was going to write about how I have no ingredients except for butter, but then Kate also ran out of ingredients and beat me to it.
That’s ok. Let’s make this short (like SHORTBREAD – I amaze myself) and sweet. (more…)
