Conversation #24: Where in the world is Sassy Engineer?

Wow – I have been gone for two weeks!  Eek!  I didn’t mean to, I promise.  Life is has just been so crazy lately.  I’ll try to recap a bit for you.

Let’s see.  First, I went back to my hometown to attend the wedding of one of my best girlfriends from high school.  My date – another one of my best girlfriends from high school!  We were actually the guest book attendants.  It did sprinkle on us a bit, but it was still fun, and they were such a beautiful couple:


Don’t you just love her dress?  I adore it!!!

After that, I drove back with Doc Sis and the cutest boy in the world:



We went to the zoo, and it was hot!!!!!  Thankfully this zoo was designed with a lot of shade, but when it is over 100 degrees, shade doesn’t matter too much.

Then, we also got Hunky Law Graduate through the bar exam!


Now, I don’t ever for a second try to say that being married to a law student is as hard as being one.  However, it is a big part of your life and relationship.  I knew we would make it through, but I definitely didn’t spend much time with the hubby since oh, about the beginning of May (finals were always intense as well!)

Anyway, the hunky JD (juris doctor) hunkered down and studied every day for weeks, and I know he put his all into that exam.  He knows God called him to law, and God has been faithful every step of the way so I know He’ll be faithful now.  What a journey we have been on in our marriage.  This is the first time in the 5 years we have been married that neither of us will be in school.  You have no idea how excited I am about that.  Although, I will have to change my evening schedule from being “single” to married again!  I’m sure it will take a bit of adjustment (the hunky JD was always in night class and worked during the day).

I’m just so proud of him, and we are both excited to see what God has next for us.

Okay, that doesn’t sound like as much now that I have typed it out, but I promise, it has been busy.  Tomorrow, Hunky JD takes the MPRE (the last bit he needs to practice law), and then we celebrate!

Lastly, for your viewing pleasure, I show you my sweet nephew.  Every time before I have to leave him, I take a picture with me holding him.  Someday he’ll be too big, but until then you can see how much he is growing.  Oh how I already miss him (my sis and bro-in-law!)





Look at those precious curls!  Happy Thursday night :)

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

The Post Office Blonde Moment

(Photo from:

So I found a new satchel purse that I'm very excited about.  I got a better deal on this one than the other, and it is from one of my favorite purse companies, The Sak.  Here is a picture of it:
I decided that I needed to return a purse I bought from them a couple of weeks ago though to feel good about this purchase.  I bought it thinking I would love it, but I just couldn't make the shape fit for me.  I let it sit for a week or so, but it wasn't happening.  I was just going to keep it because the thought of returning it sounded like a hassle until this bag was revealed on their website, and it was waaaaay marked down for a week!  I decided I would just send the other one back, and so began the post office debacle.

I lost a little faith in the USPS this week - at least the local one near me.  I went on Monday night to pick up a priority mail box, and they were all out.  Plus, there were like 20+ people in line.  I de…

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
