since you landed here, i'm guessing you want to know a little bit more about me, eh?

well, alright.

my name is lauren. i didn't really start to like my name until a few years ago. i always found it...well, boring. now i like to think of it as simple & classic. 

i'm the proud mama of two little rascals - milo & otis. if you spend any time around here, they'll become your best friends, too.

speaking of best friends, that's where my sister comes in. she happens to be a pretty talented hairstylist, blogger extraordinaire, and a great friend. (cue awwww's)

we also have a handmade jewelry business together, Elisabeth Ashlie Jewelry.

i could eat chicago style pizza everyday for the rest of my life. no question. 

haagen-dazs coffee ice cream with chocolate sprinkles is a tiny bit of heaven in a bowl. 

speaking of heaven, i'm a follower of jesus. at least, i try to be. i believe that Jesus did what i couldn't do for myself - He saved me. God is good, and He is good all the time. 

sleep is my favorite thing. ask anyone that knows me - they will tell you that if i could be doing one thing at any time of the day, i would want to be sleeping.

also, it's pretty much a guarantee that i look ridiculous in 80% of the photos that are taken of me. just ask my sister. (see right)

i try not to take life too seriously. i have no idea what i want to be "when i grow up". i prefer to be laughing instead of crying. although a good cry is just what i need every once in awhile. you too? good, glad i'm not alone. 

so, stick around. let's be friends.
