3 Years in Pictures

After I finished LAW SCHOOL yesterday, I hopped in the car and drove (like myrtle the turtle) to the country.  Zack's cell phone started going off before 7am so there was no sleeping in for me this morning.  But, that's okay, I am plopped on the couch in front of our Cadillac of televisions (one of our biggest & best splurges).  All I want to do today is watch reality tv, blog, read blogs, and pin on pinterest.  I feel like a celebrity now that I have made it back -- everyone keeps blowing their horn when they pass and see my car in the driveway.  I haven't been here in months!  My blog has been and is going to continue to face neglect until I pass (or attempt to pass) the bar.  I thought, however, we should do a little review--in pictures--of the last 3 years.

At the ripe ole age of 20, I moved into my first apartment in Uptown Charlotte to begin law school.

1L Year:
   Zack & I and got our first set of Charlotte friends, Lauren & Evan.  (Note: Lauren *went* to law school with me and is my fabulous matron of honor).  

First law prom!

Now 2L Year:
Lauren got hitched and I was her maid of honor. 

Zack decided that he could put up with me for a lifetime and put this beauty on my finger. 

My new, bigger apartment.  
From left to right - Me, Zack, Colt, and Kelli.  Colt goes to law school with me and Kelli is his girlfriend.  I've decided to make her my own friend.  The four of us have had some great times!
Law prom year 2!

Now 3L Year:
My sister married Zack's brother.  If you're a blog reader, you've caught on by now that the Stroup sisters are marrying (or have married) the Sholar brothers.  
Lauren & Evan joined my family for Thanksgiving.  It was so fun!

The fabulous Kristin Vining of Kristin Vining Photopraphy took our engagement pictures.

My niece, Laney, made her arrival.  I love "Bug."

We took a little spring break.

Law prom year 3.

All I am missing now are graduation photos.  Bring on Sunday!

I've also noticed while going through my pictures that I changed my hair constantly.  It is funny to watch the evolution.  Zack gives me his preferences after the fact, not before.  

Have a great day my sweeties.
