My Hard Drive Issues, the Upcoming Weekend, & a Giveaway for the Ladies

Those of you who know me, know that I am living in Charlotte with a roommate who is studying for that dreadful multi-day little diddy they call The Bar. Ironically and somewhat cruelly named, most people who have sat for the thing will tell you it is anything but a party. These poor, brave, law grad souls sit in a class for half the day, and then, bury themselves in the books after hours. Well, some do. The ones who aren't doing that now will hopefully fall into the routine come July 4th: the universal get-down-to-business deadline.

Point being, sometimes I just have to relocate from the living room to give my roommate a decent studying environment. Not because she requests so. In fact, she has been so sweet about making me feel at home. But because, unlike The Bar, my blog was not so ironically named. Translation: IF I DO NOT LEAVE THE ROOM I WILL TALK HER POOR HEAD OFF. So on Thursday, I planted myself outside after work to relax. I sat on our cutest ever patio/balcony area with a glass of wine and my computer on my lap. My phone rings. It is Kyle, so I decide to pack up my stuff and move to my room to chat. I pride myself on my multitasking skills, but there are some spaz-esque days when it feels as though Miss Chat Tea can hardly chew gum and walk simultaneously. Not really, but to set the stage... I attempt to carry all of my items into my room while I have the phone on my ear and OOPS. I drop my computer. Now, my pretty little computer is saying some not-so-ladylike things about my hard drive. Can't we all just get along? Luckily, Kyle came into town the next day and left me his computer for a few weeks. I think I need to get the Geek Squad on this one.

In more fun news, we are celebrating K8's birthday belated-style in the form of a girls' Charlotte weekend. Let's just say I did some in person restaurant and bar research this past weekend to help plan the itinerary. After all that successful research, I really cannot wait.

& ending on a more positive note than I started, to all the ladies:
Enter here to win this cute Lilly Pulitzer wallet from Ms. Lauren Nicole. It's summer, so we can all use a little color in our lives. I hope everyone has a great week!
