hunka hunka burnin' love.

I love Elvis.  And this song has been stuck in my head since yesterday.  Enjoy!

entering twins territory.

Today was my lucky day.  I woke up bummed that Opening Day for the Twins is on Friday and I have no tickets for this season yet.  But I'll be going to bed happy because I wound up with tickets to two different games in April!

One of my best friends is coming in town before he heads to the Middle East for a bit with the Coast Guard.  This morning, he offered me an extra ticket to the April 13th game against KC.  Luckily, this game will work perfectly with my schedule:  Business Associations until 11:55AM, Twins at 12:10, Evidence at 4:30PM.  Excellent.

And this afternoon, I walked into work and my boss handed me tickets to the April 27th game against Tampa Bay as a thank you for me helping out around the office this week.  Unbelievable.  And then, to top it off, she took the office to happy hour.  At 3:00PM.  What a lovely Tuesday!

Can't wait to get back to Target Field!

spring break.

spring break has never felt this good.  i wish i was flying down the highway toward the beach, but i'm staying home in minnesota.  if i could do it again, well... instead, i'm only listening to my favorite spring break tunes.  here's my #1 (brings me right back to carolina):

i've made an extensive project list for break.  i'm determined to be productive this week.  so far, i've done three loads of laundry, cleaned out my bedroom closet, tackled some schoolwork, and purged 6 bags of clothes, 2 bags of recycling and 1 bag of trash.  and that was all yesterday!

up next: more cleaning and more daydreaming of this:

sneak peak.

i am in law school.  yes, i watch legal tv shows and movies.  so, sue me.  a lot of attorneys will tell you that they never watch legal shows because of how unrealistic it is.  same goes for doctors and medical shows.  but, i happen to enjoy the unrealistic reality of the situation.  i'm interested in the law.  it follows that i would be interested in television and movies about the law.

so tonight, i'm off to the mall of america for a sneak peak of The Lincoln Lawyer, starring Matthew McConaughey, Ryan Phillippe & Marisa Tomei.  check it out 3.18.11!

Happy Women's History Month!

In 1987, Congress declared March to forever be Women's History Month.  In a message designating March 2-8, 1980 as Women's History Week, President Jimmy Carter stated:
"From the first settlers who came to our shores, from the first American Indian families who befriended them, men and women have worked together to build this nation. Too often the women were unsung and sometimes their contributions went unnoticed. But the achievements, leadership, courage, strength and love of the women who built America was as vital as that of the men whose names we know so well.
As Dr. Gerda Lerner has noted, “Women’s History is Women’s Right.” – It is an essential and indispensable heritage from which we can draw pride, comfort, courage, and long-range vision.”
I ask my fellow Americans to recognize this heritage with appropriate activities during National Women’s History Week, March 2-8, 1980.
I urge libraries, schools, and community organizations to focus their observances on the leaders who struggled for equality - - Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Lucy Stone, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Harriet Tubman, and Alice Paul.  Understanding the true history of our country will help us to comprehend the need for full equality under the law for all our people.
This goal can be achieved by ratifying the 27th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which states that “Equality of Rights under the Law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.”
Take a moment this month to recognize women who have made a difference in your story.  And then, watch the always fabulous Isabelle Allende talk about passion, women, and feminism.
