I have known that 2012 is going to be a rough year for me. I am not saying this to be negative. This post is not venting - just pure honesty.

I go to Coachella - f*&^ yeah!
I turn 30 - mixed emotions.

I graduate law school - yay! Only to be thrown into bar prep two days later..
I study for the bar - eh.

And then I will have to find something to do with myself until -

I get my bar results - hopefully that is a yay. *fingers crossed*

I don't have a job for after school despite doing all the "shoulds" that career services (and almost every teacher) gave me. Even when I do get a job I know there will be a learning curve - that I will suck at things and will have growing pains in learning the trade of law.

I just have to believe that this entire process is a growing process. A process in belief. A process in keeping the faith.

I found this video on a blog and even though it is written about creative writing I believe that it applies to MANY other aspects of life. I will get through this phase. I will... because what other choice do I have? I have to keep moving forward. I can't just sit and pout.

The Pose.

I am sorry but WTF was up with Angie's pose tonight on the Oscars? If you have to pose like you are mid-lunge for your ginormous dress to look any bit fashionable then you probably picked the wrong dress Angie. You are Angelina Frickin' Jolie - I know you had a ton of choices. But really this was just ridiculous.

And frickin' eat something woman!!! You look too skinny. Unhealthy skinny. Not attractive.

UPDATE: Angie's Right Leg officially has its own twitter account. Appropriately named @Angiesrightleg. I am a follower. Win.

Another UPDATE: Angie's pose has become a revolution. Legbombers unite!

Titanic (Leo) In 3D!!!

I was obsessed with the story of the Titanic when I was a child. I am not sure if it was because the ship sank on April 15th and I was born on April 17th (obviously not the same year). Or maybe it was my appreciation of all things in the turn of the century/flapper era.

When I was in fourth grade we had to draw a picture of a ship that the teacher then laminated to look like a ship in a bottle. I checked out 2-3 books from our school library and drew a replica of the Titanic. Yes, I was a weird kid.

But then you add Leo - I saw the original 3 times in the theatre.

And now you add Leo in 3D - I know what I am doing on April 4th.

Heidi Merrick.

Just discovered Heidi Merrick and I feel as if I have found my soulmate (sorry J!). California vintage mixed with clean simple lines. The epitome of my closet. Now I just have to figure out how to get every single piece of this collection into my possession... If you have ideas let me know.

1,000 Shoes.

Dolce Vita makes great shoes. There is no question about that. So who wouldn't want a free pair? A crazy person, that's who.

I saw on a few blogs that Dolce Vita was giving away 1,000 shoes in February so I signed up on a Thursday. Received the email below on Friday saying I had won a free pair!

Disclaimer: You do not get to pick out your shoes if you win. But with Docle Vita you can't go wrong so who cares!

If you don't win or are impatient (like me) you can use the code above to get 25% of a pair. Sure-fire win!

So enter to win here... Or else you are a crazy person.

February Wedding Translation.

Translation of this Inspiration.

I was so rushed the day of this wedding that I didn't get a chance to properly photograph the full ensemble. But here are some pics from my friends...

J said he wanted to see it all together so I will have to throw it all on again and photograph. Until then...

My "date." When your significant other lives on another continent you often get paired up with other solo RSVPs. In this case I was paired up with my beautiful friend Jen - Great times! You can see the red clutch peeking out...

Great times! Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Gorman!

Craftsman Library.

I want to come home to this. Craftsman library = heaven!

Pins = Where You Are In Life.

I have a new theory - you can tell what stage a person is in by their pins on Pinterest...
- I will survive themed pins = breakup
- Wedding pins = engaged or hoping to be VERY soon
- Baby stuff = kid or one on the way
- Lots of travel = needs a new job

Happy Pinning... Whatever your stage in life.

I have started playing soccer more and it made me realize how much I need it in my life. I have been playing 3 times a week and my body is feeling stronger. I LOVE IT! I also find myself being more healthy overall. God help me if I am ever not able to play soccer... It brings so much happiness into my life and really is part of my life balance.
