Josh comes to Visit!
PEOPLE! Josh is breaking records… he’s been up here TWICE already. There’s also the fact that he is such a perfect house guest when he is here. Attention Amy Rush: you picked a winner. Josh was in town for work and managed to snag two days to spend with us here in the Twin Cities. We’ve been so excited about his visit and we decided to branch out of our comfort...
*WARNING*THIS BLOG CONTAINS INFORMATION THAT COULD BE CONSTRUED AS BRAGGING*WARNING*BUT I PROMISE ITS JUST TALKING*WARNING* So today was the highlight of my 1L year. I finally got to step out from behind the computer and participate in a mock oral argument for a pre-trial motion for summary judgment. And let me tell you… it was so...
Today I get to talk. I hope I make a great impression!
Yesterday saw HUNGER GAMES with boyfriend. Jennifer Lawrence steals the show (as Katniss should). Sat next to the neatest ten-year-old who whispered to me the whole movie. At one point he was scratching his leg and said, “Sorry I have this thing with my leg.” I said “Don’t worry!” and he glared at me and said “I DON’T like to TALK ABOUT IT.” Found...
A lovely weekend leads into Spring Break!
Joe and enjoyed a lovely, relaxing weekend. Friday night after he played piano bar we went to our favorite pizza shop in Edina (Mozza Mia) and then watched some March Madness at our favorite neighborhood (but not local) bar (Old Chicago). Saturday we walked Uptown in the gorgeous weather, had some lunch and studied/read at our favorite caribou for a long while. After Joe practiced and I did...
The first thing I did to celebrate was take a three hour nap. Not a kid anymore :-)
I am sitting here ready to confess that before today I had never used a crockpot. Yes, I have eaten crockpot cooking before, but I have never personally attempted. I used to just shrug and pretend to understand when a girlfriend would say “Yea, I just threw some stuff in the CrockPot this morning so I’m not worried about dinner.” But today. I took the leap. And wow. I mean....
the icy lake and our hearts begin to melt. going to be a beautiful spring no matter how long it takes to fully arrive. love.
weekend in the life
That handsome man of mine drinking a dainty whiskey drink on Friday night. Called a “Brown Derby,” it featured whiskey, honey, and grapefruit juice. Tasted like pretension and culture. This picture sums up the tiny bit of fun we allowed ourselves this weekend. The rest could be described by the sound of my fingers feverishly...
Akward Real Life Moment: II
After a 60 degree day on Tuesday, I assumed that the perils of winter had passed. Even when Minnesotans scoffed at me, I wasn’t phased. I was practically ready to go out in shorts, but compromised by just not wearing 2+ pairs of pants everyday. Imagine my surprise, then, when I awoke this morning to a thin sheet of freshly fallen snow. However, instead of admitting defeat I put on a cute...

I am so glad its Friday. It was a tough week with two midterms, lots of constitutional law, and very little time with my dear Joe. We’ll still both be studying most of the weekend but at least we’ll be together, its the best thing afterall.
