post-bar update

Hello, friends!

I just wanted to give you a quick update. The bar exam is over. Without exaggerating, I can safely say that it was the worst thing I have ever had to do in my entire life except attend my PaPa's funeral. I would rather have my wisdom teeth extracted nine times than take the bar again.

Today at church, one of our friends asked me about the test. "I'm sure it was a long test," he said. "What, three hours?" I think he almost had a coronary when I told him I had to write 16 essays in 8 hours -- and that was just day one! I envy people who've never been to law school. What marvelous, stress-free lives they must lead, where a three-hour test is on the long end.

You'll be glad to know I'm back to my old self, though. I'm watching a lot of TV and making lots of food. I'm experimenting with a crock pot granola recipe as we speak! I'm also awaiting the arrival of some new baking pans I ordered from Amazon, and I have some fun test recipes lined up to break them in. I've got several posts planned for the next few weeks, so stick around and see what the Wards are up to these days!



  1. So glad you're back! And that I've never been to Law School :)

  2. Ooh...would love to hear how the granola recipe turns out!

    4 days later and I still wake up thinking...I really don't have to study today?!?

  3. Thanks for the message you left on my blog! Having supportive people to help along the way is amazing. I am 100% positive that you did great on the bar exam. I am glad that you get this time to relax. ENJOY IT!!!

  4. Yay for being done with the bar!

    When I was doing Teach for America I envied those that weren't doing it for the same reason. I always thought, "Oh it would be nice to be stress free for just a little bit."

  5. I made granola yesterday ( recipe). It is very delicious. How did your crock pot version turn out?
