Hello lovelies!   I'm fairly excited about this weekend!  My little cousin (age 8) is coming to stay with us, which means a house full of boys!  We have a bunch of funtivities (as Jason calls them) lined up.  It's our first time to have any of our kid relatives over by themselves, so we'll see how it goes.  If this works out, I may work up the nerve to have my 3 year old niece visit.  True story- I'm afraid of babies.  They just seem so fragile, and I'm terrified I'll drop them or hurt them.  So up until this year, I've been kind of timid around Hope.  However, now that she can speak, hold her head up, and act like a small human we're pretty good friends.  :)

"Princess Hair" courtesy of my niece.  She didn't really understand that curly hair isn't supposed to be brushed.  :)
I really do love her.  She's about as precocious and bossy as I was as a kid, and I probably deserve being on the other end of it.

One of the things about law school that kind of makes me sad is how much it slows down the life process.  So many of my friends are getting married, starting families, and here I am spending Friday nights holed up in my office with a book.  Don't get me wrong; I love my life and the course it's on, but when most of my friend's Facebook pictures are babies and kids it's easy to get a little jealous.  At least I have young relatives to borrow until I've decided to actually "grow up."

And to end things on a high note: here is one of my favorite YouTube videos.  I'm sure you've all gathered by now that I'm pretty much a food snob, although I prefer the term foodie.  I'm very ridiculous particular about where I will and will not buy groceries.  Admitting is the first step to recovery, right?  Until then, at least I can laugh at myself.

Happy Friday all!
And to Miss Abby, I'm working on the card tutorial!  It should be finished soon!  And thanks again for the notebook.  I love it!

Aw, thanks for the shout out! I can't wait for the card tutorial.
In reference to your post, I know what you mean. I'm lucky in that none of my close friends will likely have kids too soon (b/c of grad school, travel, etc) But you never know!

Ohhh I totally agree that law school slows down your life. It's so frustrating to me sometimes to see my friends passing me by. And it's hard too sometimes b/c I'm young to be in law school, so a lot of my classmates are already married or have kids or whatever. I just feel left behind and left out, but I have to keep reminding myself that there will be time for all of those things after law school, and it will totally (hopefully) be worth the wait!
