Almost Mrs. Hargrave!

I'm up, and I'm exhausted, but I wanted to take a minute to think about how awesome tomorrow is going to be. I'm marrying my high school sweetheart, the love of my life, and I really can't imagine that life gets any better than this. I mean, does it?

I've dated Micah for almost six and a half years. Seriously. I remember the summer before my senior year in high school, sitting on my bed and answering the phone and hearing his perfect little voice on the line, calling me WAAAAYY out of the blue (I had a BOYFRIEND!). And so it began. I had no idea then that he would be the person who fulfills my every need, but God always has a plan. Even when it seems random.

Here we are, making this eternal commitment to actively love one another for the rest of our lives. And honestly, that doesn't make me nervous. Not one tiny little bit. He's had my heart for a long, long time, and I'm so excited to say the vows I mean with every ounce of my soul.

Half a Lawyer!!!!

My third semester of law school is OVER! It feels so crazy, because I had just been DREADING this semester and how busy I'd be, and now it's done. And I feel... AMAZING! A little freaked out by my exams, but they're done, and now I can finish up all this wedding business!

So I can't write long because, technically, I'm supposed to be packing right now. But we're headed to Josephine today, with Fluffy in tow, and we'll be there until the wedding! Then we'll be in MEXICO! So wish me luck. I'll post pictures as soon as we get back. :)

What are YOU thankful for?

I know Thanksgiving was like a month ago. But I'm sitting here, studying for finals, so wishing for this week to be over, and I realized that I have absolutely zero reasons to be anything but 100% content right now. And I started to think about every reason I have to be thankful.

1) I have a loving Savior who has led me and carried me through every tough moment of my life. And there haven't been very many tough moments. Amen to that.
2) I'm marrying Micah. Enough said.
3) I have had the ability to go to college and even graduate school, when many are not fortunate enough to have that opportunity.
4) I have amazing friends, each of which fulfills some part of me and enriches my life.
5) My parents, brother, and sister-in-law are some of the best people you will ever meet.
6) I've had my cat for 18 and 1/2 amazing years, and she's still kicking.
7) I live in a beautiful house and have every possible thing I could need.
8) I live in America, where I can freely worship the Lord, where I can freely express my political opinions, and where I can be anything I want to be. Not everyone can say that.
9) I have, like, seven good books to read as soon as finals are over.
10) It's Christmastime, one of my favorite times of the year.

If you're having a tough day. If you're worried or stressed. Stop and think about every good thing in your life. What a mood lifter!

I'm in a lovey mood today so...

One of my very favorite quotations of all time:

"[Y]ou have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on." - Mr Darcy, Pride and Prejudice

Micah Hargrave...

You are my "at last."

It is SO apparent to me that God created me just so that I could be yours.

I cannot wait to marry you and be your wife. Almost there. :)

P.S. Watch this video...

I just think Taylor Swift is the cutest thing that ever walked the face of the earth. Her videos are so fun.

You change your mind like a girl changes clothe

Procrastinating much?

Instead of studying for finals today (well I studied a LITTLE), Micah and I went grocery shopping and started putting up some of our wedding gifts.
And our kitchen table STILL looks like this.

I think you're technically supposed to wait to start using your things... in case something "happens" before the wedding. Whatever. Sorry guys... you aren't getting your gifts back if Micah leaves me at the altar. :)

Right now I'm watching my perfect fiance kicking butt at the Wii. We just bought it a few weeks ago, and he's a master already. It's ridiculous. And he doesn't even play it that much. But look how cute he is. :)

Three weeks until the wedding!!! Can you even believe it? It feels like yesterday he proposed. SPEAKING of proposals!! My wonderful friend Candice is ENGAGED! SO amazing, and I'm SO happy for her.

Alright. Back to learning patent law. :)

It's been a little while, right? Geez, I hadn't realized it had been so long since I last... reflected.

Have I already said how I am officially burned out of school? Last year I remember being SO fired up about learning and enjoyed reading for class and found it very easy to sit down and take the time to study. Then this semester hit me. With the judicial internship and law review and moot court and flying back and forth to Dallas to interview and WEDDING PLANS and then I was just DONE with caring about it all. I was SOOO busy the first half of the semester that when it died down and I actually had time to study... I had no desire to do so. Which, clearly, is not good. And I guess I'm pissed off that I haven't been able to immerse myself in wedding plans like I could have if I wasn't in law school. I know it will turn out well, but I just wish I could have taken the time to make it better.

Anyway... enough negativity. I'm very blessed, and God's got me taken care of. :)

I was thinking earlier this morning how NOT observant I am. It's slightly scary. I don't notice things... really at all. So if I don't notice your new haircut or don't realize that you got a new car, I'm really sorry. I just don't pick up the small things in life very well. I'm a big picture, see the forest not the trees, kind of girl. I'm worried this may not be good for the practice of law. I guess we'll see.
