second chances

One year ago, I found the holiday sweater of my dreams, online. (Pictured at the end of this post). I waited around, looked in the physical store, and ultimately missed my chance. I honestly thought about the sweater a few times since then...and then today, it appeared again...

here in gray, navy, or red.

Exciting! This had never happened to me before...almost always, once something I loved is gone, it is gone for good. The holidays feel infinitely far away, but the air is chilly and I am in dire need of warmer clothes. This sweater may very well be part of cold-weather wardrobe additions!

Since I couldn't not mention it somehow...

Could you have asked for a more stylish First Lady? She loves Narciso Rodriguez and J.Crew equally; she looks stunning in a cocktail dress or a polished pantsuit. Michelle Obama is just stunning.

..it also doesn't hurt my opinion of her that she is a successful attorney :)

ALIVE...sort of

You know how people say that law school is tough, especially the first year?


Does anyone know of a remedial law program? Anyone?

Luckily it has been a little more comfortable thanks to Danielle at solestruck. These shoes are great on my 1-mile, uphill walk to class (and of course my 1-mile, downhill walk home too!)

Found here.

It also snowed like crazy today. I'm talking blizzard. (I'm told it was not even close to a true blizzard, but coming from Florida...yeah...blizzard). I walked to class and the snow was falling so fast...I couldn't help but think of this:

...the snow barrel blast level from Donkey Kong Country. I love that game.

I am trying to keep up with the weather, but it is hard. Last week it was 75, this week 25. How will I ever survive the long snowy winter?
