Conversation #50: I can’t even think of a title, I’m that lazy

I hit my two-year blogging mark back in September, and I didn’t even really think about it.  This second year has been pretty crazy and I haven’t really paid as much attention to ye ‘ol blog.  My life has been a crazy mess of emotions lately.  I have plenty to blog about, but I didn’t want this to be a dumping ground so I took to private journaling on my computer.  It was therapeutic.  I have had some pretty low “lows” lately, but I have had some great highs as well.  One I do want to share is that my hubby passed the bar!!!!

I’m sure my one reader that is left doesn’t even care about that, but I’m so proud of him.  It is and has been very evident to me for a while that this law is what God is calling him to do.  I love him and respect him for being diligent and following God’s plan.

Anyway, I wish I could write more, but I need to hit the hay.  I hope to get back to regularly blogging, but this slothfulness that has come over me lately must leave.  Hope all is well with y’all!

Congratulations to the husband!!! I hope everything else just works itself out in time...I think there must be something about this time of year. I've been having some pretty low "lows" myself. You're not alone. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I hope things get better for you soon :)

Congrats to the hubby!! The bar exam is a bitch (pardon my language) - I passed the CA bar... probably the most gruelling experience I have ever been through. Good for him - and for you!

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: http://www.nauvoonews.com/nauvoo_photos.htm)

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 …
