royal wedding

Now that William and Catherine (great name) are married they too will join me in the rank of Duke and Duchess, what an honor dont you think? They are now TRH Duke and Duchess of Cambrigde, they and the Duchess of Plumewood should totally get together sometime and have tea and cupcakes.

So I was up early this morning to see HISTORY HAPPEN! It was the most beautiful wedding I’ve never been to, or have been to for that matter! So in a couple years when some lucky guy asks me to tie the knot you will basically see a repeat of what went on today, maybe the trees in my abbey wont be as tall but still foliage will be happening. In celebration of their marriage I baked – what else!?

the “catherine middleton” cupcakes I made

there were tears (from me not her)

oh yeah! notice the pearls and English flag shirt! Oh dear I seem to have misplaced my tiara! 

my tea cup cupcakes and my British Flag cupcakes. 

and here I swooned

most. beautiful. gown. ever. 
she brought sleeves back and we should all be thankful

graduation announcements

Things you should know if you’re coming to my graduation (or going to any college graduation)

Courtesy of Real Simple:
1) “What can you do with that degree?” instead ask “What have you learned that will help you do what you enjoy?”
2) “You should go to law school” (I already am but don’t ask other people)
3) “Do you have a job lined up?” Seriously, do you want to someone to punch you?
4) “The economy has been bad before. You’ll get through it.” We’re realistic so don’t sugar coat it, just stay away from the topic.
5) “My fill-in-the-blank relative just got out of college, and she’s doing great!” That’s not inspiring, thats terrifying and a little rude. Who cares? We just graduated not your relative, tell us how cool we are.

Those are the ones from Real Simple, with added commentary from me, and I have thought up some more…

1) So do you have an internship this summer? – No I dont, I’d rather not kill myself working 9-5 this summer when I’m going to be killing myself in law school which will probably be a 24hr job. I am babysitting 2 fantastic kids this summer and I plan on having lots of FUN.

2) Why are you going to law school? I have a very specific reason and its personal, if my dad or stepmother is in the near area I wont tell you. And if you ask the question in a snotty way I’m just going to look straight in your eye and tell you one word – money- and walk away.

3) Is Zach joining you in Minnesota? Rough subject. We’ve discussed it and while I might listen to your input its not really your business. Give me a drink and then I might talk about it.

4) Is that really what you wore for graduation? (Mom this one is for you) All you’re allowed to say is wow you look so pretty/beautiful/gorgeous/enter adjective here! I will reciprocate the feeling on your special day, and if your special days have already gone by then I will tell you that on a random day!

5) What was your GPA/LSAT score/etc? Seriously? Do you want me to punch you, or tell you and make you feel bad? But seriously the diploma is in my hand, I got into law school with a scholarship, who cares what my GPA/LSAT score is!

Things to ask:

1) When are you moving to Minnesota?!
2) Are you getting a kitty for your new apartment?
3) Are you excited?
4) Why didn’t you give the commencement address at graduation? (they totally overlooked me btw)

Can’t wait to see everyone in 18 days! May 13th at 9AM! WHOOP!

black and whites

so I’m redecorating/decorating my new apartment when I move to Minnesota and I want all the pictures (well most of them) on the walls to be taken by me.  I want the artwork on the walls to be all in black and white and all of my favorite places. Here are some that will be gracing my walls!

Love my weekend with mom!

Had a wonderful weekend with Mom! We went shopping in Houston, had dinner at the Zeta House, and went to the Zeta Tailgate and then the Aggie Baseball game! We had a wonderful time, eventhough I was sick (too little sleep and too much stress from Stompfest week)! Can’t wait to see her on Friday for Easter weekend!
