day 18

Plans/dreams/goals you have...

My plans, dreams, and goals are always changing. 4 year old Lauren would say her plan was to be a princess living in a castle. 8 year old Lauren would add being an awesome pop star like the Spice Girls. 10 year old Lauren would tell you she was going to be a ballerina someday.

...as you can see...my dreams and goals are never set in stone.

But one thing I know I want for sure is to be a mom, an aunt, a grandma...I want a family. That's the plan and is actually the only plan that has never changed throughout the years.

...also to be rich haha

What are your plans, dreams, and goals?



day 17

Someone you would want to switch lives with for one day and why?

I have though about this question for a couple of days now trying to come up with a super rad person to switch lives with...then I realized that it wouldn't really matter exactly who I was switching with. To me, switching with any random person would be interesting. To experience, for one day, life through the eyes of another...to see the world they do, to see what is most important, most feared, most loved, most enjoyed. To experience this person's ways of thinking and reasoning...to see the unique web of memories that live within only their head. Could you imagine what that would be like? I could imagine that having such an experience would truly connect people on such a deep and emotional level. Every person's life is uniquely and solely theirs...how interesting it would be to be able to live in someone else's world that is completely different from your own.

What do you think?



oh no...

Have you seen these???

These are possibly the best/worst thing that have ever been invented. These deliciously delectable treats are gloriously packaged in the cutest, tiniest reese's cups I have ever seen. I cannot stop myself at just one, or two, or twelve....

delicious, but deadly.


ps. i wouldn't mind if one of these perfect packages just happened to be dropped off at my house or nicely given to me as a gift (wink wink hint hint nudge nudge) :)


it's your birthday!!

I just want to give a shoutout to my awesome mama....

My mom is pretty much the greatest thing that has ever lived. She is so selfless and caring and will drop everything in her life to help her family! She is beautiful and kind and is the greatest mom anyone could ever ask for! I want to grow up and be like her.
I love you mom!
ps. exactly four months until the big day!! :)


be my valentine.
