Friday afternoon I (and most other 3L's) had our 2-hour bar review class. The class is excruciating, not because of the professor(s) who teach it, but because it is held on Friday afternoons and my brain usually decides to start the weekend early at noon on Fridays. I spend the 2 hours attempting to take notes and fighting the urge to jump out of my seat and scream as I run out the doors.
Any extra bits of time I had this weekend were dedicated to doing laundry. I don't know how it's happened, but there must be some sort of little sprite or fairy who brings dirty laundry into my house. When I realized my color-separated piles covered the floor in my bedroom I debated just setting it all on fire to be rid of it... But I couldn't do that to my lululemon pants, so I got to work changing loads on Friday.
On Friday night, SL made us the yummiest family dinner. She made chicken parmesan and pasta in red sauce. AW set up a little make-your-own salad bar with carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, and toppings. AB brought chocolate cupcakes and Girl Scout cookies. And I provided the wine... And the kitchen table. :) I love having home-cooked meals like that... Where you can just sit around the table and chat and laugh together. It's a welcome departure from the hurried meals I usually scarf down in my car on the way to class or eat while reading and watching a TV show to save time. I know it's terrible, but I very rarely cook since I've been in law school... The 30 minutes I would spend prepping and cleaning up could be spent paying bills, reading for class, or blogging!! :) I'm looking forward to cooking again when I graduate.
After dinner we watched Something Borrowed with Kate Hudson and Ginnifer Goodwin. It is such a cute movie... But I always have mixed feelings about the plot!! I know you're supposed to want
Rachel to be with Dex, but I can't help thinking that they should have figured that out sooner than right before the wedding!! Even if I thought my best friend's fiance was my soulmate, I couldn't imagine doing something like that to her!!
While we were watching the movie I worked on a paper that was due at midnight on Friday. It was fairly simple and straightforward, so I was able to write it while watching the movie and shopping for law prom dresses... (I still haven't decided on one!!)
Saturday morning I went on a little breakfast date... I don't know why, but they are my favorite. The sun was shining and he took me to a place I've never been before, which is always fun. I ordered the cinnamon french toast, and it was delicious!!
After breakfast, I went on an errands-and-shopping marathon. I am not kidding you, I am a pro when it comes to errands and shopping. I don't get tired... I could literally go all day and all night, checking to-do's off my list. If you ever run errands or go shopping with me you should bring some flat shoes and a snack. For reals.
Saturday To-Do List:
- Take comforter to dry cleaner's
- Find new tie-out's for doggies

My "Legal Ladies" met up with me halfway through to do some marathon shopping and have lunch at Panera. We always laugh when we're together because we're like Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda. We all had a successful shopping day, and I was thrilled because I managed to get my entire list completed in about 5 hours.
After my shopping marathon I went home to get ready for a hockey game. I am really embarrassed to admit this, but this was my first ever hockey game. I know, I know... I'm terrible. I thought the game was fun... But mostly because of who I went with. I got very excited that the away team had Gryffindor colors... And some of them were even wearing these burgundy and gold striped scarves that looked just like the ones the Gryffindor students wore in Harry Potter.
After dinner, we all went out for late appetizers/dinner and drinks. Somehow we got onto the topic of ghosts and robbers and ended up scaring ourselves to go home!! I was so jumpy the whole rest of the night!!
Sunday morning I went to brunch with my brunch-and-breakfast date. :) Then we ran errands at Target and Whole Foods. Isn't it crazy how doing such mundane tasks with someone can be so soothing and relaxing?! I spent the rest of the afternoon reading for classes, doing laundry, and was even able to get a little scrapbooking in. I watched the Oscar's last night and have determined that I really need to see The Artist, Anonymous, and Midnight in Paris. They'll be on my to-do list for next week. :)
What have you all been up to?! Did you do anything fun... Or relaxing... Or productive this weekend??
