honey, let's talk...

{Question}: What thing does your partner take too seriously?

{Chris}: She takes "getting ready" for the day too seriously.

{Lauren}: Being exactly on time. For sure.

What do you take too seriously?



is it february yet?

Can I just say how excited I am for this movie?? I love both of these actors!

February needs to come faster!!!




I totally just saw Donny Osmond!!!

I was at the Simply Mac store by my house when THE Donny Osmond walked in!

Oh man...that probably makes me a nerd for being so stoked about it, but really, my mother and I LOVE Donny. Always have, always will!

Too bad I was WAY too shocked to ask him for a picture, autograph, or even to say freaking hello! So nothing too epic happened and I don't have any proof other than the huge smile on my face and the stars in my eyes that scream sheer excitement and joy.

Oh man. Today has been a good day.


how i met your mother

Alright folks...if you do not watch this show you need to check it out ASAP!!!

I have been a fan of How I Met Your Mother for a while now and used to burn through episodes like it was nothing. Recently (thanks to my sister-in-law and Netflix) I have rediscovered my love for Ted, Robin, Barney, Lily, and Marshall.

In the past week I have watched an insane amount of this show, but still cannot get enough of it!

The episodes are hysterical, the wardrobes are darling, the characters are so lovable and relatable....seriously, this show is amazeballs.

I may just have to start an episode right now...



artsy fartsy

Since Chris and I got married this past summer I have been busy busy busy with projects to make our little apartment feel more homey. Chris can back me up when I say that while starting all of these projects has been fun and dandy...finishing these projects has taken me quite a while. In fact, the very first one I started is still not quite done.

For one of my projects I decided to whip out some paint and tap into my artistic side...please excuse the phone pictures for I have misplaced the USB cord that goes to my camera.

I decided that an orchid, being delicate and dainty, would offset this...

Haha I never thought I would decorate with an angry tiki man face, but Chris loves him and he has actually grown on me.

What do you think?



new beginnings

Happy new year, folks! I love new years...it is a time to start anew. It is a time of reflection on the challenges and fond memories of the year before. It is a time of resolution.

As I have been thinking about this upcoming year and what is ahead of me I am slightly nervous, but really excited. I have decided that I'm going to buckle down and get my schooling done so that I can hopefully be starting my very last semester of school by this time next year! It's going to be rough and a lot of work, but worth it.

In regards to new years resolutions I'm going to make it a goal to be more consistent on this little blog of mine. I really want this blog to be a journal of sorts. I want to document mine and Christopher's life together and to make this blog a reflection of who I am...who we are. Something we can look back on as the years go by.

What are your resolutions this year?

I hope you've had a lovely new years!
