And .. whoosh!

So I know we've been on "pause" for a ridiculously long time now. Who knew it would be so tough to find a few free minutes to write about my distrust of the Disney princess brand and some thoughts on feminism?

But in the meantime, want to hear a story? My bridesmaid outfit went out the window ... literally.

I'm flying out for the wedding today. My mother-in-law made me a beautiful jacket to match the ones the other bridesmaids are wearing. We all used the same pattern, fabric, etc. in an effort to reduce the stress of people shopping for people they've never met across country and maximize the possibility of matching. Anyway, last night I got home and went to get the jacket out of the car. The hanger was right where I'd hung it. The jacket was not. The explanation? We think at some point the window was rolled down and it went flying out.

There were many tears, a lot of phone calls, and a very understanding bride and patient mother-in-law.

Somewhere in Utah a beautiful jacket in the color of "marine" is blowing around in the wind. Maybe another bridal party can put it to use?

Perilous ...

Well, we made it to the Grand Canyon and back and even survived a hike of Angel's Landing along the way! It was a bit steep and, well, narrow, but all three of us that hiked it felt very hardcore afterward.

Now that I'm back I'll be shortly resuming the alphabet posting game (you're getting excited for my anti-princess post aren't you?), though probably not every day. Clerkship applications are due this week and so life is once again consumed with school.

And the winner of the $20 gift certificate for pledging not to use the word "retard" as part of the "Spread the Word to End the Word" campaign goes to ... Natalie! I used the random number generator and #2 was the result. Yay for good causes and friends!
