Hey everyone! Chicago is basically a white winterland, a very, very freezing cold white winterland, which has me wanting to …

Hey everyone! Thanks for your sweet comments about my new header – today I’m changing it a bit by adding a holiday theme. I think what I like about this plain white header is that I can add little things to fit the season if I want to!
Today I wanted to do a “Currently” survey. I’ve seen it on a few blogs, but mostly on Nicole’s blog, The Marvelous Misadventures of a Foodie. Since I think she’s super cool, I’m going to copy her and do the survey!
Loving: SNOW! I know it can be a pain, but for someone who doesn’t have to drive anywhere (aka dig out a car or deal with traffic) it’s mostly a blessing. I just love when it’s snowing at night and it feels like you’re in a whole different world.

Ashley tagged me an ABC survey on Monday, so I thought I’d join in and fill it out! I always love getting to know a little bit more about other bloggers, so I hope you enjoy!
A. Attached or Single? Really? First question? Single.
B. Best Friend? That’s hard with friends from different parts of my life, so I’ll start with my friend, Maddie. We’ve known each other since we were little, been though a lot together and I’m pretty sure she knows everything about me… dangerous. Haha.
And then of course my twin, Amy Lee who just got married! She’s like a sister to me, and her family is my southern family!..

I saw this quiz on both Tina’s blog Lindsay’s blog (and a few others) so I thought I would also join in! Everything that’s currently going on in my life:
Current Book: Barbri study guides! Yay!
Current Music: I. Am. Obsessed with this song. I’m trying to limit how much I listen to it because I know I’ll get sick of it if I keep listening to it all day long…

Hey everyone!! Who is excited for the weekend?!?! I am! I also cannot believe that I only have ONE WEEK of classes left!Seriously, where did law school go???? At least this isn’t like college where I wish I could go back and do it all again and again. No way. Haha.
So last week I got an e-mail from Kristina saying she’d nominated me for the Liebster Award! I’ve done a lot of these in the past so I don’t usually do them (out of courtesy for you all – repetition…) but it’s been a really long time since I’ve done one so I thought it would be fun today!
Rules for the Liebster Award
Write 11 random facts about yourself.
Answer the 11 questions given by the person who nominated you.
Create 11 new questions.
Nominate 11 bloggers and mention them in your post.
Thank the person that nominated you and tell the people you’ve nominated.

So remember when I asked you all to fill out that survey? Well, I got 119 responses by the time I put this together, so thank you for those of you who took the time to fill it out! You can still go fill it out if you want to, I’ll see your responses and any post requests you might have. And remember, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
I figured that since I asked for you help, the least I could do was show you the responses that I got!
This was an interesting question because it wasn’t as clear cut as some of the others. Clearly my personal life is enthralling… Haha and I was also surprised at how many of you say you like recipes, seeing as I haven’t really posted more than a few in months… Guess I should get on that?

Good morning everyone. I’m a little out of sorts and at a loss for words today after getting the news last night that we’d lost someone who was my friend’s grandmother, a dear family friend and a wonderful role model to me.
Thankfully, in lieu of a regular post, I’d already prepared this survey that I’d love for you all to take. I also just wanted to remind you all to appreciate your loved ones and each day you have together.
I realize I’m totally copying Ashley and Kath, but now I’m really curious about a few things! The survey results won’t make me change my blog, but I’m hoping they’ll give me some ideas on what to post on, and what to do less of. I’d REALLY appreciate it if you take a minute to fill it out! Thanks!

Happy Sunday! Geez the weekend is flying by much too quickly for my liking! It’s been a while since I’ve done a survey, and I saw this one one Lindsay’s blog yesterday, so clearly I had to steal it from her! Thanks Linds!
Country/State/General Vicinity: Chicago, IL
Year you ran your first mile without walking: Hmm. Well, I don’t think I managed to run without walking when we had to run the mile in middle school for gym, so probably in High School when I had to run for field hockey.
Year you became a “runner”?: Oh gosh… I ran a little bit during college to help get in shape (aka try to counteract my horrible eating/drinking habits), but I never started running with a purpose until I moved to Chicago in 2010 and decided to..

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great start to the week. Thank you all for your well wishes for my IT band, I’m hoping it gets better soon! I’m actually off to see a physical therapist this morning for an injury screening, so we’ll see how it goes. Honestly I think it will be my biggest fear: that she’ll tell me I have to stay off it for weeks. Pray for me. Pulease! Gracias. I think someone is trying to teach me that I’m not in control of everything…
Anyway, while I’m off figuring that out, here’s a survey that I saw on Ashley’s blog! I’m not sure why it’s called “Last Chance” survey, but it works!
