Mr. Esquire

Pin It!

Today there is an extra special edition of "Smile...It's Friday"

My husband found out the he passed the bar at 6:00 pm this evening. Our night pretty much went as follows:

3:30 - Brandon went on a run
4:00 - Brandon worked out
5:00 - Brandon and Amira paced around
5:10 - Brandon and his friends texted about their blood pressure
5:20 - Brandon took a shower
5:40- We went for a walk around the block
5:55- We sat down in front of his computer

Bar candidates are given a unique code to enter in the system at 6:00 pm on the dot. If you've passed, your name will come up. If you don't pass, your name won't come up and you'll get an error that "User has not been found." If you enter in your unique code wrong, you'll get the same error as well. Mean, right? I had mentally prepared that if his name didn't come up the first time, then he simply didn't enter the code right.

5:59 - One minute left

6:00 - Brandon refreshed the page, entered his code, held my hand, and pressed enter. Before I even realized what had happened his hands shot up in the air and my eyes focused on the screen. In beautiful red letters was his name. It almost seemed like an out of body experience! He hugged me so hard and basically threw me across the room. There was screaming and dancing and so many phone calls.

I had secretly asked about ten of Brandon's close friends to be waiting at a restaurant. If he passed, we would join them at 6:15. If he didn't...well, then they would all have dinner together and he'd never know anything was ever planned.

I don't think I've ever been so proud of someone. He has worked so hard for so long and can finally take a sigh of relief. For the rest of the weekend, I will be referring to him only as Esquire (the fancy name you get when you're licensed to practice law).

I'm an attorney's wife. {fancy}
So smile! It's Friday :-)
