It's All About the Journey

Because I'm traveling, Jill so graciously offered to do a guest post for me. Here's what you need to know about Jill:

Her blog is called A Journey To A Life Well Lived, hence the name of this post. Aside from blogging, she's 1L at Ole Miss Law School, but I can forgive for being a Rebel (Go Vols!). I love her blog, because she's so honest and sweet, and it really comes through in her writing. On top of that, she's dog lover, and has 2 sweet pups, just like me. I swear one her littles looks just my Bourke, So hop on over and check her out.

OK, Jill take it away!

Greetings, all!

Jessica was lovely enough to have me be a guest poster while she's away on vacation.  This is my first time to guest post, and I'm sure Jessica has laughed a time or two due to my newby-ness questions and mistakes.  She's been very kind, though!  I'm in my second week at Ole Miss Law and I'm sick...what the heck!  It's just a cold, but still.  It's put a damper on my running, playing with my dogs, and socializing, but I'll make it through.  I've been really good about getting dressed in real clothes and doing my hair and makeup.  Small victories, right?

Just because I’m under the weather doesn’t mean I can’t bring a little fun to the blog.  So, without further ado, I wanted to share a few things I’ve gotten recently that will really come in handy as I continue my legal education.  Namely, I want to share some recent clothing acquisitions.  Deep stuff, I know, but I’m really excited about them!  I took advantage of the Labor Day sales last week, and I scored some great things!

My favorite of these new things I bought are those Halogen pants.  Aren’t they amazing!?  I’m trying to branch out in terms of pants, and I definitely think these pants meet that qualification! Nordstrom has some great clothes, and when they put on a sale you can get said clothes at a steal!  However, they go really fast (as evidenced by my new clothes no longer being available), so you have to get them without hesitation.  I'm sure that sentence gave my mom a heart attack.  No worries, Mama!  I'm done for fall now...

All of these pieces, save the dress, will be able to be worn through fall and winter, which means that they were really good purchases.  Plus, all of these pieces can be worn in more than just one way and in more than just one setting, so they are very versatile!  I am trying to space out my new clothes so that I don’t wear all the fun, new stuff right away. 

So, what’s on the agenda for the remainder of the week?  Well, first and foremost, I will get better.  It’s a must.  Next, the first home game of the season is on Saturday!  Hotty Toddy!  I can’t wait to head out to the Grove and celebrate.  I think I’ll wear my new Vince Camuto dress this week J  My Sooners are also playing, and I hope to be able to catch a bit of the game!  Boomer Sooner!

Have a great weekend, and I hope your team wins their game (unless, of course, you’re Southeast Missouri State, or West Virginia).  I hope you will join me over at my blog!

Until next time.  Your Daily Cairn:

My little nurse taking care of me.  She is actually resting her head on my face; don't ask me why.  Mr. Gatsby is in my lap and is pouting because we're not playing on the stairs.
