I promise i'm still here!

So so so sorry I have been MIA, who would have thought law school would steal all of your time?!? Only kidding, I knew that beforehand and boy is that right on.

I have been getting used to being back in school and I actually don't mind it. The only really terrible thing as of now is how long it takes to do the readings because I have NO idea what any of it means! I know that will get better as I understand the law better, though.

The house is moving right along, though I don't think I will be in for another three weeks. I can't believe we ever thought I would be moved in before we went to the beach!! We did have a change of plans in the kitchen, which involved removing all of the cabinets and starting from scratch, so that set us back a few weeks. I need to go take pictures because the painting is finished and it looks amazing! Lets just say stripes are the way to go!

I will try to start posting more regularly as soon as things settle down and I get into the groove of school, so don't think I am throwing in the blogging towel!

And, since no blog post is interesting without pictures, here are some recent Cupie pics:
Hangin' ten!

I love this one, she is such a precious puppy dog!

I hope all is well with y'all!

My love for paper

I will admit that I am addicted to things other than makeup and beauty products, though I have only confessed that addiction to date. Well, today I am here to tell you another addiction of mine, paper goods. I love stationery of any kind and have a bit too much. Cute notecards? Gotta have 'am. Note pads with  a darling motif? They must be mine! Cocktail napkins and disposable coasters? Add to cart now! Obviously I love all of the staples, Caspari napkins (!!!), bright and fun Boatman Geller everyday notes, and the always lovely Cranes informals, but I love simple items that are cute and classic. Enter Embossed Graphics.

As of recent, I have been itching to add a few more personalized notecards to my collection, and I finally took the plunge and bought a few new items this past week. They are all from Embossed Graphics, and I am in love! If you have never heard of this great paper company, check out their site. They run the gamut of personalized stationery, from calling cards to guest towels and everything in between. They have great colors for all of the personalization and have fun and funky fonts to choose from. I also got $10 off my order when I used Google checkout from this site!

Here is what I ordered:

The Anthony 7 Tablets. I got my name in hot pink and they all say my first and last name, not just my first on one. I will see myself using plenty of these to write myself notes and to-do lets during school!

Easton Calling Card. I have some calling cards already by Sweet Pea Designs that are leopard... lets just say they aren't professional in the least. I love how these aren't your standard boring business card. I resisted the fuchsia and went with navy.

Large monogram note. I got these is the light pink paper and I can't wait to write a note on them! I also got my new return address on the envelopes!
Is anyone else obsessed with paper goods? Please tell me i'm not the only one!!

I hope y'all had a great Tuesday!

Sorry, this has been a stressful week!

So I know I said I would be back in full force last week, but obvi that didn't happen. Between law school orientation and Cupie getting sick, I had zero time to blog.

Luckily, Cupie is doing so much better! She is still sick and has not been interested in eating at all, but she is so much better than she was a week ago. She is on tons of meds to clear up the pneumonia and to keep her tummy settled since the antibiotics are so strong. Poor little thing has lost some weight, so I am hoping her tummy gets back in check asap and she can put on a pound or two.

Orientation went so well and I have met lots of great people! The first day or two were super awkward because nobody really knew each other and everyone asked the "where are you from?" and "where did you go to undergrad?" questions probably a million times. But hey, what else do you say to complete strangers?

So I finally uploaded pictures from the beach and I am just going to do a photo dump. Hope you don't mind!

We surprised my dad by inviting his childhood friends down for the weekend. This is when his first friend showed up.

My dad and his childhood best friend. Notice his friend wearing a fake ponytail and earring... hilarious!

The golf course across the marsh from the house is the Ocean Course. These are my dad and his friends playing on dad's birthday. (I know, you can't tell it's them but it is.)

Well that's all i've got for today. I'll let y'all know how the house is coming tomorrow, I hope to be in by Labor Day!

Back to briefing cases, yay! ha

Say a little prayer please!

You all know how much I LOVE my sweet baby Cupie, and unfortunately she is very sick right now. She had tummy problems starting Sunday night and we thought they were under control. However, last night she threw up in her sleep and aspirated and it has turned into aspirational pneumonia, which is very serious and can be fatal. She stayed at our vet all day today and my dad and sister transferred her to the emergency vet for the night while I was still at orientation today. I will go transfer her back to our regular vet in the morning. She is on a constant iv with tons of antibiotics and is taking breathing treatments. I love that sweet littler girl and am so sad about her being so sick, the poor thing was so helpless this morning before going to the vet. She is so sweet and I know she is going to get better, but all the prayers will help!

Some snap shots of my cute little one.

Thanks to all! I will let you know how she is doing tomorrow!

I'm baaacccckkk!!

Hello blogging world, I am back from an amazing 2 weeks at the beach! We had such a good time and I was so glad to get to take 2 weeks off.

I haven't uploaded my pictures yet because I am getting a new laptop {YAY!!} and I don't want to have to transfer them. So, google images will have to do.

What we did:

We stayed in this gorgeous home! It was amazing, with views of the marsh, ocean and The Ocean Course, the golf course where the PGA championships will be next year.

We did plenty of this:

And this:

We went to Charleston a few times, and hit up these great places!

We did lots of other fun things, including celebrating my Dad's 50th birthday (plus/ minus 20 years ;)) and an engagement!

More details to come soon! I will try to catch up on everyone's blogs, but I start orientation today so that may not pan out.

I'm alive, don't worry!

So, I have had little time and little drive to blog while at the beach, but I am alive and well!

I will update y'all on Sunday after I get home.

Hope y'all have been well!
