Big things have been happening around these parts... most importantly: last weekend I went home, bought a car, and retrived Elle Woods from her 10 month sabbatical in Texas!!!!
We laid by the pool and relaxed for a few days before we made the trek back to Chicago..
Then Elle was my attentive copilot for the 15 hour drive from Dallas to Chicago
(we stopped in STL for the night Saturday to visit friends)
The new car met my only requirement (Elle-colored interior)
as well as Elle's only requirement - sunroof!!!
And now we're back! We went out for frozen yogurt Monday night to celebrate Elle's triumphant return to the windy city....
And of course she got her own cup! Yummy!
Side note: I've been so busy lately... I think I've been out of town almost every weekend this fall. But I'm back and settled in for a while. I've gotten so many emails from people who failed the bar exam and who are looking for tips/tricks for how to pass the next time. First of all - I'm so sorry. I wish I could give you all a big hug and buy you a beer. Second of all - look for a big long blog post next week with what I did/didn't do and what I thought made the difference for me getting over the hump and finally passing that stupid test. I am also going to send out an email to all my friends/anyone I know who failed and then later passed with their advice. (if you're one of those friends and you read this blog - reply to my email!)
So also if you are one of those who failed the bar exam and then later passed - if you could shoot me an email with any advice you have, it would be much appreciated!
