so I think I'm totally happy with my layout...for now :) You can check out the place I got it from to the right-Blog Makeover! Anyways..through an endless trail of blog hunting..I came across this (annnd since I've newly made the theme of my blog this: Create.Inspire.Share.Learn) and just HAD to's too cute!! First, through my blog layout place, I came across this blog about doing things for your hubby on the cheap:
annnd through her posts came across a totally sweet and funny proposal just so LOVEly that I HAD. to. SHARE!!!:
Click on the THIS and THIS links in the post..totally adorable!

Ugly blog..

Yea so please excuse my blog while I'm *trying* to make a few changes, thanks! :)

2010..Here We Come!

So today was my first semi-not-good day of the year (not bad for only being the 5th!)
But I just wanted to wish everyone a HAPPY New YEAR..annnnd with my free time did some "lovely little lauren" searching and stumbled upon this blog:
OH how cute!!! And kinda like me? Whatcha think? Anywho..I went to get my inspection sticker changed..and the old guy (gotta love 'em!) that did it saw a certain exercise thing in my back seat and asked "Got a New Year's reasolution?" pointing at the machine. "No", I said, "that's not for me"..I actually didn't make a single one. Didn't even WANT to, at all, not even a little bit! I think that's the first time? And I'm happy with not making one..but it makes me feel a little weird, because you're supposed to have one, and I always have, and yet I have no desire whatsoever to do so, and I'm not quite sure why that is. Maybe it's because I'm afraid of failure? AND/or maybe it's because I was watching SoapNet (!?!? One Tree Hill reruns come on during the week people!) and some soap star when asked what her resolution was said something like this: "I don't need one..Life is good-Why change it?" And I totally loved it! I mean I cannot even express how blessed I've felt recently, really and truly. Annnd while on my most enjoyable mini-vacay to the hizzy (yes, I really did just refer to our house as the hizzy!) in Hattie(sburg that is, but we're just on a first name basis like that) me and my boyfriend were just having a blast spending time together and a certain familiar song came into my head, and I don't think the words were ever truer before (cheesy, but LOVEly alert!:)
These are the moments I thank God that I'm alive
These are the moments I'll remember all my life
I found all I've waited for
And I could not ask for more
Looking in your eyes
Seeing all I need
Everything you are is everything to me
These are the moments
I know heaven must exist
These are the moments I know all I need is this..
I could not ask for more than this time together
I could not ask for more than this time with you
Every prayer has been answered
Every dream I have's come true
And right here in this moment is right where I'm meant to be
Here with you here with me

Anyways, this post ended up being longer than I had thought it would be, but here's some inspirational material I stole while blog stalking such an adorable (or shall I say LOVELY?) blog by another Lauren (see her blog for further credits, mostly :)Etsy:

I thought this was kind of going along with the former I was saying about failing, ANNND I watched What I Hate About Me on the Style network tonight..and there was a girl just like me who ALWAYS apologized..and they got to the root of it and found that she basically apologized for being herself, which is how I feel sometimes..and they trained her to NEVER apologize for who she is..GOOD ADVICE!!!

And this one kinda goes along with what I was saying about how great life is :)

Ditto to the first thing I was saying..

Annnd lastly, (w/even some New Year's-lookin' decor, a favorite poster of mine, slightly dressed up a bit;):

"Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about CREATING yourself"-my bff sent this to me in a text, and it's been a favorite of mine as well for quite some time, but she told me to put it in my quote book, and as of yet, I haven't, but I will! It's soooo true! Annnd if you aren't happy with your life, then do, by all means, change it NOW!!! NOW is the time! Buuuut I can honestly say that I really could not ask for more in this point in my life.

I hope everyone had a Happy New Year's and wish everyone an amazing year!!!
LOVE, Lauren :)

Just a Few of My Favorite Things: Kids, Love, and Scrapbookin' :)

Sooo yea..the title says it all: I love to scrapbook, especially when it's little kiddos like my Godson and his older brother! I love them so much! I thought I'd share the pages and close-ups of them with you. However, I have to warn you, it's not my best work (I wonder why?), and these pictures were taken while traveling in the car (some half in the shade, half in the sun), and after they were already in their sleeves. Also, I have to warn you: picture overload (especially since it's pictures within pictures haha!)

LOVE, LOVEly Little Lauren :)
