Wordless Wednesday... Castillo de San Marco

So a while back I posted here about my trip to Florida for my G-big's wedding.  I talked about everything that we had done except for our trip to the Jacksonville Zoo (see this post for more on that) and the Castillo de San Marco.  The Castillo de San Marco is an old fort in St. Augustine... it is absolutely GORGEOUS.  I don't think words can do it justice... so maybe these pictures will help give you a feel for what it was like....

Here We Go Again

Remember last summer when I was going crazy studying for the bar exam?? Well I am at it again... it is less than 10 days to go before the exam, and now I'm starting to get a little bit nervous.  I've been doing well ALL summer not stressing, but it definitely seems like the time is here to begin to freak out.

This summer I am only taking the Pennsylvania Bar Exam... which let me tell you people is NOTHING like the Delaware exam that I suffered through last summer... no sir.  It has WAYYYY less information that is being tested on, yet I am still SUPER nervous about it.  Maybe it is because I still haven't found a job as a lawyer and I feel like if I am barred in both Pennsylvania AND New Jersey it is going to open up all these new doors for me.  Whatever the reason is... I am freaking out!

If you don't hear from me, or don't see much of me on here for the next few days... well now you know why.  I will be locking myself in the house studying... and if I'm not studying I'll be working like a crazy person to make sure I have enough money to last me though the 5 days that I will not be working while I am taking the bar exam and recouping from taking the exam.

Wordless Wednesday... The Jacksonville Zoo

A few posts back I said that I'd get around to updating you all with our trip to the Jacksonville Zoo.  What better day to do that than on a Wordless Wednesday.  MD and I had an amazing time at the Jacksonville Zoo... we saw tons of animals... my favorite of course being the giraffes!  Enjoy some photos of the animals we saw at the zoo :)

These are just a few of the pics... I think we took almost 200!  I left out all the pics of the bugs, snakes, etc. because well I just don't like them.  

Also, because I love you guys, here is a video of me getting to feed a giraffe... note the HUGE smile on my face when all is said and done... don't think there is much in the world that could make me happier than feeding a giraffe! :) 

Ok... well maybe there is one thing that might make me happier... and that would be a ring on my finger ;)

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July all!! Many thanks go out to all of of those who have made this country what it is today.  Without those who have fought for our country we would not be the land of the free and the home of the brave.  So many thanks go out to all of our troops who have fought for our country and who continue to fight for us.  There are not enough words to express my gratitude.

I am going to keep this short and sweet because it's been a long weekend, but wanted to leave you with a song that makes me cry almost every time I hear it because well it just touches my heart.


A special thanks goes out to my G-big (LS) who is in the Navy; EC and JKD who are friends of my g-big who are also in the Navy; DK (the fiance of one of my besties SS) who is in the Army; TL who is in the National Guard...I really can't thank you guys enough for all that you have done for our country.  Love you all <3
