TGIF, still waiting for that rain to go away

It's. Still. Raining. I woke up Tuesday morning with EIGHT updates from the weather channel + the crazy-loud iPhone warning when there's severe weather. Like I said last week, at least it makes it easier to stay inside and study, but it is just sooooo depressing when its dark outside at 3 pm! I'm hoping this just means we'll have perfect weather after the bar!

My friend told me about the show Damages that's on Netflix now (I think it used to be on FX and ended in 2012), and I. am. obsessed. It has Rose Byrne in it, Helen from Bridesmaids, and she is so great. Glen Close is also a main character, which I've enjoyed because I still mostly just picture her as Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmatians. Anyways, it's all about a law firm where Glen Close is the partner at the firm and Rose Byrne starts out as her associate, but things get a little unethical and very suspenseful - fast. Think How to Get Away with Murder + Suits. If you're looking for a new show to pick up, I would highly recommend this.

Welp. Remember me talking about Prime Day, and how it was this mysterious sale Amazon was promising? Turns out it wasn't all that great anyways. I checked periodically and there was almost nothing that I was interested in, and anything I was interested in was immediately unavailable - think Target for Lilly. I did end up still getting a few things in my cart - the shoes and coffee filters, you know the necessities - but that had nothing to do with any special Prime deal. Oh well, at least that just means less money spent. Always look for the positives, right?

I am LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AWAY FROM TAKING THE BAR and I am terrified. It seems so crazy to me that this summer spent studying for the bar day after day is finally coming to an end, and that end is THE BAR. I'm honestly feeling okay about the exam, but still overwhelmed thinking about all of the things I don't quite understand as well as I wish I did. I am definitely looking forward to have my regular life back when the exam is over, but doing my best to stay focused during the final stretch.

It is no secret that Gap is one of my favorite places to shop. I've tried to be much better recently about not shopping if I don't really need something since we're planning a wedding, looking at buying a house, and basically just trying to be responsible adults. But a girl can only delete so many "SALE" emails before she gives in. I just ordered this cross body from Gap during one of their 40% off everything sales (which is still going on) and I am so excited to use it. I love anything with a bow on it, and I ordered it in the cognac, so I know it will be super versatile! What do y'all think? Was it worth it??

Despite having rainy weather for what feels like 25 out of the last 26 days, there was just enough sunshine for a girls day at the pool on Thursday and it was so. nice. Essentially all of my friends here are in law school, so while we're all miserable together, we all also feel guilty doing pretty much anything except studying. However, we figured we could probably spend a couple of hours at the pool - doing flash cards of course - and be just fine. I think it was certainly a deserved break that we will benefit from, everyone's brain needs to rest and recharge every now and then! 

How has your week been?

Have a Great Weekend, Y'all!

  1. I totally agree! The Amazon Prime Day was a huge letdown. We still bought a few things, but they were items we needed and were just waiting to see if they went on sale.

    1. That's exactly how I was - those coffee filters still made it to the final order! haha

  2. I wasn't very impressed with Amazon Prime Day! Good luck on the bar! Happy Friday : )

  3. Visiting you from H54F, and first of all...I love the picture on your About Me page with your ring and Rupp Arena in the background. Awesome! #bbn :)

    It sounds like you weren't alone in your opinion of the Prime sale. If you had to compare it to Lilly for Target it had to be sad. Haha!

    Also I can't ever see Glenn Close that I don't picture her as Cruella De Vil either! So funny! Have a great weekend. :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I know a lot of people love to have pictures of their rings at the beach or somewhere really scenic, but it was November and I think Rupp is just as scenic! :) Have a great weekend!

  4. Good luck with your bar exam. It will be over soon and just a memory. I crammed my 4 year degree into 6 years, seemed like it would never end but it's just a memory now! Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday.

  5. I'm with you on all this Kentucky rain. We have definitely had enough! Good Luck on your Bar exam. I will say a prayer for you. I agree, Prime day wasn't all that it was cracked up to be. Thanks for linking up to H54F!
