Thanksgiving 2020 in a White Wrap Sweater Dress

I am back on the blog for the first time in a while! I just finished my first semester of law school (I still have a paper to write) so I’ve been a bit busy studying for finals. Sorry that I took a bit of a backseat from writing, but if you miss me you can always find me on my Instagram stories. Many blog posts are currently in the works.

 

Thanksgiving was very different this year. As I know it was for everyone.

My twin brother tested positive for Covid and couldn’t come home for Thanksgiving from school. Fortunately, he’s okay.


Our plans for a medium sized get-together quickly turned into a tiny dinner party. My grandparents and aunt decided not to come. Then my older brother from Florida decided not to come. Dinner was just my boyfriend, my parents and I.

 

Definitely the quietest Thanksgiving I’ve ever had. But we still all got dressed up, used the fine china and silverware.

And ate a delicious meal thanks to chef Alice, aka my mom.

This year is just a bye year and then next year we will redo everything! It will be like the roaring 20s all over again! I cannot wait!


I wore this beautiful cream asymmetrical wrap sweater dress yesterday. It is currently on sale for 40% off. I sized up to a medium. I paired it with brown booties and gold jewelry. The jewelry was gifted from Herself Collections, a small boutique that creates beautiful high quality gold pieces. You can use my code:  TANDP10 for 10% off.

My Last Day of my First Semester of Law School

I cannot believe my first semester of law school is over. I say that at the end of every semester, but this has been by far the fastest and most bizarre semester of my entire life. It was only 13 weeks long. 

After today, I have 3 final tests and 1 paper. I will be done with finals before Thanksgiving!

I have never had a semester like this before.

I went to 13 weeks of class in a mask, in a 200-person lecture hall with 44 students (some in person and some on a big monitor broadcasted via Zoom) and my professor.

Some days I had Zoom class from my bedroom.

 

We crammed 13 weeks, of four classes, into a 15-week semester. I learned a lot, cried a hand full of times, was stressed a lot, but laughed a lot too.

 

Every day that I had class, I got dressed, made my bed and picked out a mask.

I learned so much. I have such a respect for lawyers and law students. It is a lot of hard work and dedication. A lot of reading and note taking (I completely filled up two of my notebooks and had to get new ones). But I’m really proud of myself for how much I have learned and grown this past semester.

 I feel Wake prepared me really well for law school. Thank you Wake Forest.

I came into law school with the eye on the prize: graduation and being a lawyer. I had no real goal of making friends. I was like if it happens, it happens, and if not, no biggie. But I am so happy that I met an amazing group of women that are supportive and extremely intelligent. They are also hysterical. I am so lucky to have met such a smart and fun group of women.

So, for now, I’ll be studying for finals and I will see you when I’m done!

Wish me luck!

A Fun, Safe and Socially Distant Activity to do in NYC

Alex and I were supposed to be visiting with Kate this past weekend, but she wasn’t feeling so hot, so she decided to stay safe and stay at home.

I still had tickets to Top of the Rock, so at 1pm on Saturday, Alex and I went to the 64th floor of 30 Rockefeller, aka top of the world, to see the gorgeous views of Manhattan.

We could see Lady Liberty, Central Park, and the whole city.

We had beautiful clear skies considering it rained for 3 days straight prior to our visit. It was also warm up there considering it was freezing on street level.

The Observatory Deck opened at 1pm, so we were the first group up there. Everyone wore their masks and we were easily able to distance ourselves. It wasn’t crowded or cramped, and it was a really nice experience.

New York is not dead, but parts of the city are struggling. We need New Yorkers to pretend to be tourists in their own home or we need tourists to come visit New York.

Governor Cuomo announced yesterday that the quarantine travel ban for travelers visiting New York, the two-week quarantine requirement, has been lifted.


According to the NY governor website, “travelers must get tested within three days prior to landing in New York, quarantine for at least three days upon arrival, and get a test on day four of arrival. If travelers receive a negative test on day four of quarantine, they may exit quarantine when they receive negative result.”

If you are healthy and symptom free and willing to take a test, then come visit NEW YORK. We were definitely hit the hardest, but we are strong and ready to welcome back the rest of the country into the best city in the world, as long as they are healthy and COVID free.

 

I’m celebrating the little things in life. To me-this is a little victory!
