Me :)

Bobbi and Sara commented and asked me some questions below, so I thought if I might have
some new readers coming in, I'll give some info about myself...

- My name is Lauren, I'm 23 years old. I'll be 24 in July.
- I am in law school right now at Baylor in Waco. I'll be done in July, take the bar at the end of July and graduate on August 1st (hopefully!)
- My husband, Tim, is 26 and graduated from Baylor Law in May of 2008.
- We got married on May 3, 2008 - which was the same day he graduated!
- Tim is now living in Fort Worth because he got a job at an Oil & Gas law firm in December, so we are doing the long distance thing during the week
- At the end of April, I am moving up to Fort Worth and will commute back and forth my last quarter of law school.
- We both graduated from Texas A&M (WHOOP!). I am Fightin' Texas Aggie Class of 2006 and he is Class of 2004
- We both grew up in Beaumont, Texas but didn't meet until we were in college
- I actually started law school at Texas Wesleyan in Fort Worth in August 2006 but found out at the end of my first semester that I got in to Baylor. Tim was at Baylor at the time and I wanted to do trial law and they have a really good program for that, so I dropped out of Wesleyan in the middle of finals and started over at Baylor in February 2007. Baylor wasn't going to count my classses at Wesleyan and I had only taken one final, so that's why I just dropped out and started over.
- I am going to be working at the Tarrant County District Attorney's Office starting the Monday after I graduate for about 9 weeks. Then, I will be on a break until I get my bar results in November. If I pass the Bar (which I hope won't be a problem), I will hopefully get a full-time job as an Assistant District Attorney in Tarrant County
- We just recently rented a house in Fort Worth - thanks to Jen for telling us about it :). You might see my post below about some of the issues we have had, but we really like the house and are getting everything worked out and hope to live there until we are ready to buy something in a few years.

So..I guess that means I used to be at Texas Wesleyan but I'm now at Baylor (Thanks, Bobbi, for the luck!) and I do now consider myself a fellow North Texan since Tim lives in Fort Worth and that will be my home soon enough! If there's anything else y'all want to know, please ask, I'd be happy to answer.

Oh..and I promise to change this background to something else since St. Patrick's Day is over. I'm just a little tired of using wedding pictures so I am hoping Tim and I will take a cute picture this weekend that I can use.
