2 things

1. Barbri started yesterday and it's official - my life this summer is going to SUCK. Just something I've got to get through... Hopefully I will be able to log a lot of study hours by the pool.

Not looking forward to another summer with no job, aka, no income....If anyone in the Lexington area knows of families that need babysitters let me know!

2. Lifeguard Press asked me to review a few more of their products and of course I said yes!!

One of the things they sent me were these super cute Jonathan Adler gift enclosure cards. The adorable box comes with 24 cards and envelopes, so they will last you. I love the J. Adler products with their bright colors and cheerful, pretty patterns. Head over to their website to see more cute J. Adler products as well as Lilly Pulitzer things as well!

weekend recap (a little late)

I don't know about ya'll but the task of downloading pictures from my camera to my computer is an annoying, daunting one....thus, it has taken me a while to get this post up!

Ben and I had a great time in NC with his parents. We stayed at their house for a few nights then went down to their condo in North Mrytle for a couple of nights. It was nice to get away for a bit!

Ben's parents are building a house in an adorable community in NC called SeaScape and they took me by to see it on the way back to their house in NC. I'm in love! The place is so freaking cute and pretty! The houses are all in different southern styles, Charleston, Low County, etc... Cannot wait till they move there bc I'm sure Ben and I will be spending lots of time there :)

have a lovely weekend!!

weekend recap

well, i'm graduated. soooo weird that i am now a lawyer (albeit not yet licensed to practice)! bar review starts the 24th, so i'm just relaxing until then. ben and i are headed to visit his parents in NC and then to the beach in SC tomorrow evening.

graduation was nice. it was really really hot up on that stage (don't have any pics) where the graduates were seated, so i was hoping it wouldn't last too long! my family came up and we had lunch beforehand and then all headed over to the Brown Theater for the actual graduation ceremony.

and then yesterday logan and i gave his mom a frame with a poem and his hand prints on it. we took some pictures with a little banner i whipped up. isn't he cute!?

hope you all had great weekends and lovely mother's days with your mothers and/or kids!
