A Good Weekend

This weekend was an amazing whirlwind of excitement. Our trip to Vegas had been planned for months, as we were meeting my mom's entire family to celebrate my Grandma's 80th Birthday. I wasn't so happy to learn that the day we would leave would be the same day I'd find out my bar results, but I knew that either way, being with my family would be great.
I called my mom at 6:02pm (we found out at 6:00 on the dot) laughing, screaming, crying and screaming again. She was already in Vegas at a restaurant with my family and I heard the entire table erupt in screams and excitement. "I did it!" was the first thing I said. I guess they then went straight to Party City, because when B and I made it to the hotel, our entire room was full of balloons, a huge banner, family members and a bottle of Cristal. Although my dad doesn't drink, he apparently understands good champagne. It was such a great night. I think I was still in a state of shock, but it's slowly starting to sink in that I don't have to take this thing again!

On another note, I'm so excited for Thanksgiving. I'm making dinner (eek!), luckily my law school roomie emailed me an amazing guide to Thanksgiving that her dad put together. I bought turkey last night but I still have so many things to get at the store!

Thank you all so much for your support and congrats!


  1. ohhh cristal! you deserve it! congrats again!

  2. so neat! I love family time! I'm getting lots of good family time this week. I just got my professional pics the day we left home to come see my family. I might get some blogging done from here but maybe not. There are lots of people, a cute little nephew, yummy food, games to play, thanksgiving to give, etc. so we'll see. :) I'm excited to show some though! Kelly

  3. Congratulations...it is always more fun to celebrate with family and friends...what a way to kick off a week of thanks. Congrats, again. =)

  4. Yay! Congrats! I love that your family went straight to Party City - hilarious and sweet all at once!

  5. Ooo now a dad who delivers Cristal is my kind of dad! Again, so HAPPY for you! Have the best Thanksgiving tomorrow! (I'm a firm believer that calories don't count on Thanksgiving, but I'm sure I'll hate myself Friday morning for believing so! hahaha)
