Catch Up

I've been called to carry out my civic duty and serve on a jury. Without spilling all the deets, it's a criminal trial and it's a doozey. They've said it will last 13 biz days and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it's not longer because a) my work will kill me, we are so busy right now and b) I'm due back in Indiana for my bridal shower and b-ette party in about 2 weeks. But so, here are some things I meant to blog about, but was too drained from blancing the scales of justice all week:

Last week I had a day off and Hillary and I went to LACMA. Where we strolled around and looked at art all day. They have an impressive collection and we had a great time. I took the pic above of H and this...

...totally encapsulates the day. 

Hillary was featured on my new favorite blog - Your First Memory. Check out his interview and see a picture of him as a baby here

And my latest blog obesssion is The Bright Side Project! Check it out for the beautiful wares they feature and leave a comment with your answer to one of their thought provoking questions to win some of the designer's goods. Such fun to read the variety of answers they get.

And the most exciting news of the weekend is that our great friends Matt and Linz bought a house in Louisville this weekend! I can't wait to see it and stay with them in their new abode. Congrat's my lovlies!

We're In A Commercial

G1 Spec - Omnipresent Light from Phil McLaughlin on Vimeo.

Did I mention Hillary and I are famous? Well that's cause we're not. But we helped my talented cousin Phil and his friend Aaron with a commercial they were making for contest. They could win a bunch of money so you should go here and vote for them.  Because don't you think they totally deserve to win?

Finished - Part 1 of 3

{Hillary took this through a screen window. I always listen to instrumental music while I write, music with words distracts me.}

There has been a lag in my blogging as of late, but I have a good excuse. I have hesitated to post this, or really even tell anyone, for reasons I'm not totally sure of...maybe I sort of feel like I'll jinx it. BUT...I!!!!! Okay, well, so not exactly. But I've finished the final draft, I have the required amount of pages (final count of 162) and have mailed it off to my advisor to be proofed. 

So what happens now, is she reads the whole thing makes suggestions and any grammatical corrections I may have missed (can't catch them all) and sends it back to me. I will correct and make some small changes then I send it off to be juried and it's pass/fail from there, but the latter is totally out of my mind. So the hardest part is behind me and now I just wait.

Interested in what else I've been up to? My friend Deana over at GWG sums up our Thursday evening filled with high fashion and brushes with celebrities!
