The fun that is this weekend!

I'm so glad it's Friday!! This weekend is going to be great!

Today after work I am driving to Waco for the first time in two years! I'm going to meet up with some college friends for dinner and then do all the homecoming festivities. Baylor has changed a lot since I graduated 3 1/2 years ago. I'm excited to see it. There is just something about going back there that makes me so happy.

Tomorrow is my friend Jen Wu's wedding. This is going to be an a-mazing wedding. Its at a resort center. One of the best parts is that about 32 friends from law school are attending. We have two full tables of 16. I cannot wait to see everyone. Its been since the bar exam that we've all been together like this. Fun is sure to ensue. I also bought a really cute dress from WHBM yesterday that I'm super excited to get to wear (you'll be seeing it a lot in pics this season).

Sunday I get to spend the day with my family! My parents and uncle from NC drove down last night. I had dinner with them and then they are going to spend time with Kate today and tomorrow and then Sunday with me! I'm excited for them to see my new apt and meet Callie Cat.

Busy weekend full of such fun things. Its funny to be that they are happening this weekend b/c the next two weekends i have like nothing to do. Ah well, suppose that's life!

If you're going to Baylor Homecoming tonight, give me a ring!

Much Love.

Yay: Cooler weather.
Dang: Being so sore for my personal trainer yesterday that I can barely move my arms...

2nd job I wouldn't want to have...

Crane operator, you know, the guy who sits at the top of the crane and moves it around, no thanks to that either.

(note - all these observations are coming from staring out my office window)

Job I wouldn't want to have...

Window washer in a 70+ tall building. No thanks. I'm a bit afraid of heights and I think I would freak out. Just looking at them now out my window makes me anxious.

I'll post more pics of Callie when I'm at home. She's wonderful!

Super excited about this weekend -
- Baylor homecoming
- Jen Wu's wedding night extravanganza
- Seeing a bunch of college friends
- Seeing a bunch of law school friends
- Parents coming to visit

Busy weekend, but lots of fun ahead!

Much love.

Yay: Setting my living room up finally.
Dang: Bruising my wrist while putting together furniture.

A little teaser ---

I picked up my new kitty today, her name is Callie Banks. She's a three month old dometic short hair mix, she has brown, orange, black, and white fur. I am in love... I'll post more later when I am home and have more pics. For now, this is the first pic I took of her with my phone at the Humane Society --

Weekend Update

This weekend was great! Here's a little update:

Patrick and I celebrated our one year anniversary with dinner at Mark's. A really really nice restaurant in Houston. Very romantic! We ordered a bottle of wine from Oregon and at the end of the meal they brought us a dessert that had happy anniversary written on it and an anniversary candle for both of us to make a wish and blow out, I wonder what Patrick's wish was... Don't worry I saved the candle. He surprised me with a beautiful pearl ring from james avery. He picked it out all by himself and it is just lovely! I sure am lucky to have such a wonderful man in my life.

On Saturday I took lunch to Patrick, he was working all day, poor guy. And then went to Jen's Bachelorette party. We started at Hotel Zaza, and then headed to El pueblito for dinner. Its a really cool restaurant with cabana style seating. It was a beautiful night outside so it was perfect for it. Then we went to howl at the moon for a little while. I left and met up with Patrick and my sister and bro in law. I thought it was really cute that my bro in law called Patrick to hang out knowing I wouldn't be there, yay!

On Sunday, Kate, Steve, and I went kitty looking. I found an adorable 3 month old calico at the Humane Society and put in an application to adopt her! I'll find out in 3-5 days if I can take her home. Its pretty much an absolute but just technicalities. Gave me a chance to go to Petsmart and buy kitty supplies. I've never owned a pet like this, welll other than my fish Phredd, who is still alive, he's pretty low maintenance. I can't wait to get her this week, no worries i'll post pics once I have them! Sunday night Patrick and I ordered pizza, and then went to see Apaloosa. It was actually pretty good.

All in all a great weekend.

Much love.

Yay: new kitty

Dang: mondays

One Year!

Today is officially Patrick and I's One year anniversary. This time last year, we were hanging out at my apartment, and got into a discussion about what to call each other, to which he said I'd like to call you girlfriend, and ditto for me, but boyfriend, haha. One year later I am still calling him boyfriend and he is still calling me girlfriend. :) He makes me happy and I'm excited to celebrate tonight our first year together!

This is me with a big update.

Well hello my friends. Its been a while hasn't it? I tell you what, this past month has been well..interesting to say the least. Why you may ask? Well a multitude of things.

For one, it was my first full month of real world work. I think that I am pretty used to it now, I get tired around 7, go to bed at midnight, wake up and repeat the day. It's weird that now I am here i wish was a student with such flexibility in my day.

Second.I bought my first couch! i have been wanting a new one for a while because all I have had is a lovely little loveseat. It just wasn't doing the job. Last week my sister and i went to Star Furniture and i found the one I wanted! So I bought it. It was delivered today, and as I write this I am sitting on it and it is lovely and poofy and wonderful. Part of it is a chaise lounge, which is great, because well i love to lounge. I will post pics of it once I get my living room set up, which I can do now that I have my couch to work around! Whew!

Third. I joined 24 hour fitness to get fit! I'm going to go work out after I get finished typing this. Goal is to lose some pudge.

Fourth. I got a new job. I know, new job? Don't you already have a job Sara? That's what you are thinking. And you're right, I do already have a job. And my boss right now is fabulous. She is so nice and caring and has been a pleasure working for. I just don't like the work, i need more structure (i know right) and just felt myself being pulled in a different direction. In August after i took the bar I applied to a firm in downtown Houston called Hill, Rivkins, and Hayden. They do commercial litigation, insurance, maritime (like ships/shipping, ocean), energy, oil/gas, transportation. They primarily do court room stuff. Which is exactly what I want to do. Anyways, I interviewed with them almost three weeks ago. I had a second interview last Thursday, and I got an offer today, an offer I just could not turn down! I'll be starting there on Monday, and finishing up with Nancy on Friday. It saddens me to leave her and Lynae (the paralegal) because they are both so lovely and it has been fun working and chatting with them, but sometimes, as i have found, even that is not enough to be happy. I am going to be challenged and put to the test in this new job, but I am ready. I didn't go to law school for nothing! I'm super excited and definitely think this was a God thing. I'll update after I start working there on Monday!

That's about all the updates I have for right now. I'm slowly getting in a routine and slowly figuring out how to handle my life now in this adult world. yikes.

Ok, off to workout, can't put it of anymore!

Much love.

Yay: seeing a best friend of mine last Friday!
Dang: snag in one of my new shirts.
