Sunday Social.

1. What is your dream job?  You mean other than being a lady of leisure? ;) I'd love to work for the New York Yankees. I do have a law degree, so General Counsel for the Yankees makes sense. But anything that lets me go to all the games and pays me enough to live in Manhattan would work too!

2. If you had just won the lottery and didn't need to work for money, what would you do with your time?  I'd travel the world.  Go wherever I wanted for however long I wanted with no agenda.  I imagine that we'd go to Africa (Donny's pet place) and Ukraine/Russia (mine) and do some missions work in those places.  Sightseeing in Paris, London, Rome, Vienna, St. Petersburg, Jerusalem, Bombay, Beijing, Rio de Janiero, etc...  I've always wanted to do a WWII-like tour from Normandy to Berlin too.

3. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?  For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be a trial lawyer.  And so, that's what I did.

4. What piece career advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field?  Oh my gosh, this is a hard question.  I'd tell new lawyers to try out a variety of different fields.  When I graduated law school, I had the fortune to work at a firm that let me try out a bunch of different types of law to find what I liked.  I did some bankruptcy, disability, family law, estate work, general civil litigation, and obviously criminal law.  Don't get stuck doing something you hate just because that's what you started out doing.

5. Biggest Pet Peeves Oh, this is a list... People who forward those stupid chain emails, bad grammar/spelling, when people post something whiny on facebook/twitter just to get attention, people who drive slow and get in my way, when I go to reply to a blog comment and see ""... I could go on.

6. Biggest Fears  Honestly, my biggest fear right now is being so close to the wedding and some disaster striking.  Something happening to Donny or me, him calling off the wedding (which just happened to my friend who was getting married this October...), or something else that ruins everything.  Other than that, I'm terrified of heights and bridges-- my palms get sweaty and my heart rate gets elevated just seeing people on the roof of a building on television. 


  1. Oh man... people driving slow is definitely a royal pain! I second your travel plan, especially the WWII tour- that sounds awesome!

  2. My super power is that I am the Grammer Police. Ha! Found you on the Sunday blog hop

  3. I have a bad fear of something happening to Nathan or myself before our big day. It would be so devasting.

  4. Bad spelling and grammar drive me crazy! Especially on work email!

  5. Bad spelling and grammar kills me too. Even though I find myself being guilty at times. I hope your wedding goes well...I'm sure it will.

  6. Hi Katie! I love everything about this post. :) I adore the Yankees and would also LOVE to work for them or have a job that pays enough so me and the fam can live in Manhattan.

    I'm contemplating going to law school -- any advice for me? I'm a criminal justice major graduating this December and I want to be a voice for the voiceless.
