Starting at a Sprint

Nothing like starting 2014 off at a sprint! We are super thankful for a VERY relaxing holiday season, but now that the first of the year has hit, I don't think I've taken an extra breath yet.

This is largely because I'm studying for the South Carolina bar exam, which will be the last week of February.

"Wait, didn't you already pass the bar exam?"

Why yes, yes I NORTH Carolina. And North Carolina and South Carolina have no reciprocity and require you to take the whole darn thing (federal portion included) all over again.

Oh and on top of that, I'm just running a little law practice on the side.

I'm either overly ambitious, crazy, or a glutton for punishment, and likely a combination of all three.

Basically, if I'm not working, I'm studying. If I'm not studying, I'm working. And if I'm not doing either, then I'm either at the gym or watching Downton Abbey. Regardless, Pierre is an excellent companion for all of the above. Except the gym - which would obviously interrupt his napping.

On an unrelated note, for all the Charlotte ladies: 

Our women's bible studies at our church are starting back up next week!!!!  If you are local and are interested in attending, puh-lease email me at  I will let you know which one I'm planning on doing, and you're more than welcome to join me (or any group for that matter).  Disregard the fact that the website says that registration is now closed - we always reserve a few extra books/spots in each class just in case there are any late registrants. And no worries if you already attend another church! We have tons of ladies who go to church elsewhere that attend our bible studies during the week. These bible studies are a major highlight of my week - I'd love for you to join us! You know, then I won't be the only one talking about my "internet friends." (smile.)

Hope everyone is having a lovely week and staying warm! Pierre sends his love!


  1. Pierre, you are such a stud muffin. Perhaps if you start working out, Stella will join you ;)

  2. I, too, am rooting for the sarcasm font!

  3. Crazy that NC and SC don't have reciprocity! I'd get it if say you'd moved to California, but it's a little crazy considering you're just one state away!

  4. You should rent P out to other people studying. He is, by far, the best study buddy.

  5. Oh Pierre! Good luck on the bar... I have been dreading doing another one and holding out for 5 years so I can get reciprocity in most places... Just can't think of studying again.

  6. pierre looks like he's great at studying, or at least holding up your books! ;) also a sarcasm font would be fantastic! someone needs to get on that!

  7. Whew, at least there's Downton (and dogs!) for relief...

  8. Such a cute study buddy! Good luck with your bar exam. I am sure you will do great :)

  9. Studying for 1 exam is enough. So sorry you have to take another!!
