I spent a couple days in Dallas this week, trying to squeeze in visits before I move in a couple weeks (working on finalizing the details and then I’ll share!). While there, I went through four boxes of stuff I had left at my parent’s house. As much as I like to think that I … Continue reading

I Never Thought I Could Be a Defense Attorney…

(NOTE: I swore that I posted this about six weeks ago, but it was still in my drafts folder. So enjoy this throwback to Bar studying!). Until I encountered the Multistate Bar Examiners’ multiple choice questions. Suddenly, my very black-and-white brain seems to be able to spot every single ambiguity (or perceived ambiguity) in these questions. … Continue reading

Boulder and Walnut Cafe (Restaurant Review #5)

Okay, I promise this is the last restaurant review. I hope you’re not sick of them. But when you’re in town for the Bar exam, about the only thing you have time to do is go out for dinner! 🙂 A week before the Bar exam, I got a letter from an attorney in Loveland. … Continue reading

Pizza Fusion Denver (Restaurant Review #4)

DIY Cat Scratching Post

I thought I would take a break from restaurant reviews and throw in a little DIY fun on this Friday Saturday (oops – I’m a little late!)! 🙂 The title is misleading, though – it’s not really a  scratching”post,” but rather an “A-frame.” We took Leona to the vet a couple weeks ago to have her … Continue reading

Marg’s Taco Bistro (Restaurant Review #2)

On Tuesday night, we headed to Marg’s Taco Bistro for dinner. I selected this place for Tuesday because it was only three blocks from the hotel, and I knew I wouldn’t want to make dinner an extended event during the Bar exam. This was a very cute little restaurant – we were able to sit … Continue reading

Restaurant Review #1 (Syrup)

Sorry for the delay in posting – I kept meaning to all week, and then just failed to sit down and actually do it. Oh well. It turned out I was a lot more exhausted that I thought I would be, so I needed a week of nothing! When I got home last weekend, I … Continue reading
