I think this week calls for another One Word Wednesday, don’t you? Although I had an amazing time in Kansas City (see below), it left me behind with studying and a smiiiidge tired. Already waiting for the weekend! Is it Friday yet?
So what is One Word Wednesday? In Lindsay’s words:
The only rule of “One Word Wednesday” is that you must label your pictures with one word. And it MUST be the first word that comes to mind (and yes, you can put two words together, hashtag-style if need be). If you can’t play by those rules, you probably should just sit this one out. Yeah. That’d probably be best.

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! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I had an amazing time at home with my family celebrating my cousin’s wedding – more to come on my weekend tomorrow or Wednesday! You know what else happened this weekend? The first of June! Those of you who have been reading for a while now know that I have new “goals” at the beginning of each month. Although I don’t always follow them perfectly, I like to stop every once in a while, step back, and reassess certain areas of my life. Sometimes life is speeding by and it’s important to stop and reflect for a moment, which is something I like about doing these goal posts!
First up, I like to recap how I did with the previous month’s goals:
1. Graduate law school. BOOM! Done! Granted we still haven’t gotten grades back… But hey, I’ve got the photos to prove it!

This is a sponsored post through FitFluential and Under Armour. While I was not compensated, I was provided with apparel. All opinions are my own.
I mentioned a while back that I’d joined the What’s Beautiful Campaign by Under Armour. The idea is to find a goal that defines what’s beautiful to you, and use the support of your teams to achieve your goal.
I love the idea behind this campaign and chose my goals to be PR-ing my 5K and half marathon times, and I added the goal of becoming stronger. Right now I’m working to achieve my goals by doing short HIIT runs (when my IT band allows) and doing more focused heavy lifting in the gym, which I’m loving right now!
You know what else I’m loving? The gear that Under Armour…

Hey everyone, I hope you’re all having a good week! I definitely am, I’m catching up with Bar prep and feeling a lot less freaked out (for now…) and I’m heading to KC this weekend for my cousin’s wedding! Ready for the weekend!
1. I head this song while sitting in Starbucks and suddenly HAD to download it. I foresee this happening way too much in the next two months.
2. I loved Sara’s post about how “Skinny Rules” are not really sustainable for everyday life and how we need to get rid of the rules surrounding food…

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all enjoying your 4 day week!!! For today’s WIAW, I wanted to show you a typical day of bar prep for me! Today’s WIAW comes from yesterday! If you’re new to What I Ate Wednesday, head over to Peas and Crayons to see what it’s all about, and check out the other participating bloggers!
I woke up around 4:50am, had some coffee and half a banana, put up my blog post and then headed off to the gym! Since Boot Camp ended last week I decided I wanted to focus more on strength and weights, so I’m following just the workout plan from Jamie Eason’s Livefit Trainer (NOT the meal plan) to get in some weights. Yesterday was chest & triceps, and I did 10 minutes of elliptical at the beginning and threw in 10 more at the end since I finished early.
After the gym I headed home, showered, got dressed, packed up and had a few extra minutes so I decided to eat my overnight oats at home…

One of my favorite things about Chicago is that there are so many different neighborhoods and areas to explore, as well as festivals and markets. I’m not very familiar with the western parts of the city, so I was intrigued to check out the Maxwell Street Market. Lindsay had been going for quite a while and was a big fan of the market and the tacos, so we all jumped at Emily’s suggestion to check it out on Sunday morning.
We found a lot of interesting things for sale at the market, varying anywhere from CDs, DVDs and video games; clothing, including bras and underwear…; perfume; packaged and fresh food; and lots of very random items that you’d find at a yard sale. Emily found a new friend:

All good things come in threes, right? So today I’m sharing some things I like in threes!
Three Shows I’m Loving:
Ready For Love – it’s a kind of spin off on the bachelor and, shamefully, I’m obsessed…
Dawson’s Creek – I never really watched it when it first came out, but Kelsey and Lindsay are fans so I watched all six seasons on Neflix. I just finished this past weekend!..

Hey everyone! I hope all of you are having a great week! Mine’s a little… overwhelming. But no need to bore you all with that! Today it’s time for another round of Thursday Thoughts!
1. I bought Powerball tickets on Saturday hoping for some graduation luck… Sadly I didn’t win. I think I won $2 with one but I haven’t actually taken it in anywhere to find out. I actually don’t know where I take it… the place I bought it? #lottonewbie…

Hey everyone! Thank you so much for all your congratulations and well wishes on my graduation this past weekend, I really appreciate them all! I was just not in the mood to photograph all my food this week (too much stress from being behind on Bar prep – you’re supposed to do a week of work beforehand, which I didn’t do because I had finals and graduation…) sooo, instead we’re going to do a One Word Wednesday!
So what is One Word Wednesday? In Lindsay’s words:
The only rule of “One Word Wednesday” is that you must label your pictures with one word. And it MUST be the first word that comes to mind (and yes, you can put two words together, hashtag-style if need be). If you can’t play by those rules, you probably should just sit this one out. Yeah. That’d probably be best…
