for no particular rhyme or reason.

Sass & Bide
this weekend has been quite nice, even though i've been missing C terribly. (he's in NYC for 5 days). friday i got my hair done at Cake Salon, downtown and then went to Cannella's with S & S for their cucumber mint martini (YUM!). saturday was busy, with an xtend barre class (that will kick your butt is so sore!), a mentoring marathon event and then a fun game night with the girls at J's house. today has been lazy and i've just been researching for my directed research paper (finally). 

how was your weekend? hope you enjoy the last few hours of sunday! and have a great week. (i have a feeling it is going to be a good one.)

a short update before i go do my hair. ha!

so, i was confronted the other day by my dearest friend who was quite disappointed that i have stopped blogging. i guess i haven't really stopped...i've just been completely pre-occupied.

as you know, C moved in, and things are going just splendidly! so much better than i would have ever imagined. i can't even describe how thankful i am for him, and how lucky i feel every day. (i know, i know...barf barf barf). but it normal to still love someone so much after so long? and sure, he drives me crazy sometimes (hello...dishes!!!) but, really, i couldn't ask for more!

life is great-ESPECIALLY since getting little winston. i feel like our happy little family is complete. tiff and win get along swimmingly ( least now, after a period of serious adjustment). winston loves to play with tiff and lick her face, and tiff obliges like a good big sister (although, he's quite a bit bigger than her now). he has the most loving personality and it surprises me how much he will put up with from tiff (stealing his toys and whatnot). it is as though he is never sad or upset. which rubs off on all of us. 
and the job hunt is still going strong. it is a completely draining process and i feel like i'm having panic attacks every other day, but i just have to keep reminding myself that something will work out. i've decided that i will either take the washington, utah or illinois bar. if i rock my final interview for the job in chicago and they give me an offer, i will jump at the opportunity. but, if that doesn't work out (which is highly likely since it is kind of a shot in hell), i'm 50/50 on washington vs. utah. C is willing to move with me to either state. it would be great to move back to washington...especially if i could get a job in seattle, but it also makes a lot of sense to stay here where i have friends and more legal contacts. we'll see...(insert panic button here). what are your thoughts?? does anyone have the golden answer for me?

other than that, life is just dandy. school is amazing this semester (only one class, and i actually LOVE it!). i'm still working at the Attorney General's Office and have started working at a small family law firm downtown as well. so...things are busy, but manageable. 

i hope you lovelies are wonderful as well! 


pin THAT!

so, there is a funny thing. you know pintrest? of course you do. it's all the rage right now, and for good reason. i absolutely love pinning my favorite style inspirations and random pictures from around the web that just make me smile (like this goodie up above) but i have to admit....i hate pinning wedding inspirations. i was talking to a friend the other day about it, and we agreed. pinning your dream wedding is like giving away the surprise. similarly, what if i pin my dream engagement ring, and then i don't get it? then everyone will know that i didn't get what i truly wanted. and don't even get me started on my dream wedding dress! i know this might sound completely bonkers, but really...if you pin something, are you giving it away or calling dibs? 

also, i have to shamelessly admit, this blog has totally taken a back burner to pintrest. someone is going to need to check me into the pintrest clinic for too much pinning very, very soon.
