I want to put on this..

and this..
and this..
and these..
and these..
and go here..
and do this with my gal pals..

and even have one of these..


instead..

I am going to be polishing off the end of my semester, and not a martini. I still have about three essays and one final between me and freedom. The close of my semester is near. Procrastination has set in pretty heavy, but I will keep pressing on. I will continue to meet my deadlines. I can not wait to kiss spring semester good-bye. To all my fellow college students, good luck with finals.

Manic Monday!

On the list for today:
Reference Page for my Research Paper
Descriptive Linguistics Online Exercises
Descriptive Linguistics Online Quiz
Math Homework
2 3pg. Author Analysis Papers
Then work from 4-7.

So far I have finished items 1,2 and 3.. I will begin item 4 shortly.

My brain hurts already.
But I must tread on!

Tell me something.. is everyone this busy specifically today, or are manic Mondays the usual for everyone?

I am having to do all this work today in order to pace myself for the wonderful weekend my girl cousins and I are having!
Thursday we will be watching the Midnight Premiere of the twilight saga movie #Breaking Dawn. (eeeeek!) I am excited to say the least.

Friday morning we are going to be traveling up to San Antonio to see Jake Owen and Brantly Gilbert in concert.

While we are there I have every intention to shop around, eat well, and not worry about coming home to a truck load of homework.

Happy very manic monday everyone,
Lauren

if you like it then you should have put a pin on it!

Alright, people of the virtual world I have wonderful news for you.
There is a fabulous new site that everyone should know about. Okay so myspace was cool, facebook is cool and twitter is fun right?

If you are usin' any of the hip online social networking sites here is the next one to look out for.
I feel like a pretty good amount of the friends in my circle know about Pinterest.
However for those of you that don't stay tuned in to what I am about to tell you.

This site offers tons of "pins" for you to put on your "pinboard".
It is basically a slew of images related to: clothing, recipes, home decor, DIY projects, event ideas, technology etc. etc.
You make a profile and save the images by pinning them to your profile.

On the site I found..

my dream bed room

these wonderful miumiu heels

the recipe for these parmesan knots

and party decor inspiration for my bff's upcoming bridal shower

The knowledge to be the cutest, and craftiest lady on the block is at your fingertips!

Men, don't think that you need not apply. There is even a pin tab for Men's apparel.

So go now and request an invite to join. You can start searching pins right away while you wait for your invite. It is seriously fun and a little addicting. We all know we need one more distraction right?

happy pinning,
Lauren

well hello there!

It's been quite sometime since my last blog.

I had a little spare time and I thought I would catch everyone up (I say everyone like tons of people read this) on what I have been up to.

Since my last blog I have..

Left for the summer to work in the small town of Lagarto, Texas at the best camp ever, Camp Zephyr.


I had a wonderful time working in the middle of God's beautiful nature with awesome people that I had/now consider my family.
Don't get me wrong, I wasn't always very happy to wake up at 7:00, serve mash potatoes to loud teenagers or work under the scorching sun. Although, I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to bring glory to God through serving there.
It was a tiring, beautiful, amazing, summer and I am so fortunate!


I am also very fortunate to still be dating this wonderful man. He is honestly a physical embodiment of the Lord's blessings in my life. I have only met a few people, apart from my family, that treat me with honesty, love, and respect all the time. He is one of the reasons I try to be better. Is that cliche? Yeah sure. Call me corny, but I really would go to the moon and back for this guy. :)


I turned 21! Totally monumental age, I bet you are thinking I did something awesome? It was definitely my kinda awesome. I had a birthday celebration underneath our lovely pergola with my family, a shopping day with my honey, and a movie/munchie night with my best friend. Lots of fun with the people I love <3
BTW, I received my first pair of real cowgirl boots for my birthday from Nathan. Told you he is great.


I have also been blessed to find a job working at a local yogurt joint that just opened up near my university.. Cherry Blossom Yogurt the yogurt there is awesome ya'll and I am not just saying that! Stop by and visit me sometime :)

I also returned to UTPA to continue my English degree. I can almost see graduation in the distance. I am scheduled to graduate December 2012. However, I have been having some apprehension about the minor I complete. I have even been thinking about double majoring. If I make changes that could delay my graduation. So say a prayer if you can that I be given guidance from the Lord on how to decide on my degree.

I will do my best to write as often as I can!

Love from little Edinburg,
Lauren

oh shoes!

Today I got out of work at 2, it was a miracle that they scheduled me at that time.
Then on top of that I decided to clean/clear out my closet?!
That's one of my least favorite things to do.. It is sooo time consuming!

Anyhow, I was looking at all my wonderful shoes and decided that it might be time to pass them along. 
I don't wear a lot of them very often and they might make someone else happy. I really don't need a heel surplus.

Here are some of the keepers--my faithful ladies.

 pink ladies:
worthington flower print, leopard wedge (they say drop dead on the heel!) and my candies rose glitter
business ladies:
gianni bini suede and stud, vintage shoes-black satin, fabulaire grey snake
funky ladies:
boutique multicolor kittens, hot topic studded wedge
chic ladies:
guess stud ruffle kittens, red buckle slingbacks
my go to ladies:
target rhinestone wedge


what can I say? I love shoes ;)

xo,
Lauren

high apple pie in the sky hopes..

That's right.

Here are pictures of how I would of spent my day in my "dream home".

waking up in this bed
eating breakfast in this kitchen
sitting out on this porch
being cozy in this living room 
getting squeaky clean in this bathroom
eat dinner and finish my day out here

Thank you Libby Grantham for the cute blog idea.

Lauren
