I'm linking up with Mrs. Monologues for Blog Star!
I am Lauren, an almost-25-year-old North Carolinian, Pirate, wife and mother.
|excuse the mirror pic (taken at work), I just realized I have NO solo pictures of myself.|
I married this guy named Josh in June 2009 (after dating since January 2005).. he's a Pirate fan too.
We had a precious baby boy name Sawyer on Feb. 10, 2011 and we're raising him to be a Pirate too!
|little Pirate baby - even before he was born.|

I enjoy things like...
crafting and hosting parties/showers
in the past three years with all of my friends (and me) getting married or having babies, I've had the pleasure of planning and hosting several showers and other events, and it has made me want to open my own event planning business or a place to host such things.... it's a dream that I hope will someday be a reality.
|half the fun of parties is the printables and the crafting in my opinion|
read more about these parties - Hope's Bach. (1, 2 & 3), Michelle & Eric's Pirate Shower, Sawyer's First Birthday and Dana & Bradley's Baby Divided Shower
shopping (and dreaming)
as my header says, I have quite the expensive taste (mainly centered around Lilly Pulitzer and similar preppy fashions) without the funds to support it
working in the public relations/communications field
I am the public relations/communications coordinator for the system, and also the webmaster... oh and the graphic designer.. oh yeah and the fundraising coordinator, and I also design our marketing materials (a Jane of all trades if you will).
breaking it down ghetto style
I love my share of southern rock and some country, but give me some rap and a beat, and you've got a happy girl. This picture from my friend Hope's wedding sorta sums it up:
|that's me with my mouth open, no doubt rapping the lyrics to "Get Low" or something.|
So, read my blog, or follow me on twitter if you think I sound super cool (which you should, because I am).
