i shaved my legs for this?

I know it’s not Thursday but I can still have my thoughts can’t I? Today’s post is going to be more random and erratic than a twelve year old on ritalin.

I can’t stop laughing.

I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve had to explain that no, I’m not tired or sick, I just haven’t put on makeup. Also, it’s actually really depressing when you put in all the effort to shave your legs and then the night is a bust. Men just don’t understand how risky, time-consuming, and annoying it is. That little curve by your ankle? Don’t even get me started. So yes, if I shave and then end up sitting in the booth of a Chili’s listening to your friend’s friend’s friend go on about her relationship issues, me and my smooth legs will be salty about it.

I’m 23 years old and I’m still trying to figure out a way to get a trampoline in my backyard without my parents noticing.


Tea is just leaf-flavored water. Why would anyone pay actual money for leaf-flavored water?

Google turned 17 this week – I still remember when it was a legitimate 50/50 debate whether to use Google or AskJeeves. I was a total AskJeeves girl. I think I just liked the idea of a butler answering my questions. I’ve always been a fan of personification.


Some days I think I’m going to end up being a high school history teacher. I don’t know why but I think that’d be the best.


Thanks to “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” I now have an insatiable need to go to a beach at night, light a lantern, and watch it float away. I hate when my pipe dreams come with a capital P.


Things I want to do in the next few months but need to prostitute myself for the money: zip lining, shooting at a gun range, SUP, trapeze class, barre.


I’m coming dangerously close to being addicted to candy corn and peanuts. I thought it would be adorable to set it out in a little ceramic pumpkin on my kitchen table. I’m not sure who I thought I was going to be impressing with THAT little stunt but the only person whose paws have been in there are mine and the whole situation is getting a little out of hand. I guess it’s never to early to start putting on some holiday weight?


I’ve worked out 4/4 days this week and I’m hoping that I make it to 5/7 or (fingers crossed) 6/7.


Chances are I just jinxed myself for the weekend.

Speaking of working out, things don’t always have to be your way, okay? For example, I got stuck in traffic and couldn’t make it to my usual sculpt class. When it comes to yoga I usually only sign up for a class if it has the words “hot” “power” or “sculpt” in front of it otherwise I think it’s a big ol’ fat waste of time (I know I know, it’s not). Today I missed sculpt and was forced into a traditional yoga class for the first time in a long time. And it was EXACTLY what I needed. Complete with a complimentary lavender/lemon wrap placed on my head during savasana at the end. I love this whole “hand the reins over to the universe”-thing.

IM-JUST-HERE-FOR-THE-SAVASANA7-618x618How was your week? Did it fly by like mine did? So much is happening that it all feels like a blur sometimes. Thankfully yoga made me slow my roll, even if it was for only an hour. Even just that hour helped 🙂


  1. Such a cutie post!! I l really enjoyed reading about your week!! Fabulous!! Hello, a lavender/lemon wrap on your head?? Wow, sounds amazing!! Candy corn and peanuts are yummy together and the talk about shaving your legs…um, YES!!! Hehe!! Shaving legs definitely takes effort!! XOXO!!

  2. Awesome post Lauren! We are sooo similar actually, shaving legs- urgh, I always used to ‘ask Jeeves’ he always knew the answer!, and from when I was young up until the end of university I always thought I would be a history teacher!

    I used to love those lanterns until I found out that when they land birds and animals get caught in them 😦

    (Oh and results are in… Scotland will be staying as part of the UK!!! So happy!!!)

  3. You know, I have a solution for your whole wanting a trampoline problem LOL! Get yourself a rebounder…or do what I did and ask your mom for one for Christmas! It’s a mini trampoline that you can fold up and put under your bed when you’re not using it so it doesn’t take up a lot of room. Or, if you’re lazy like me (I use it every day because it’s a great stress buster) you can just prop it up against a wall and it still doesn’t take up much room. I grab my ipod, blast some crazy tunes, and dance like crazy on that thing. It’s super fun!

  4. Oh, honey, if you think tea is just leaf-flavored water, you clearly haven’t been drinking good tea. Green tea, sure. That kind of tastes like leaves. (Unless you get a flavored green tea, of course — I like peach green tea a lot! But I also don’t mind regular green tea.) But herbal teas? Not even a hint of leafiness (probably because it’s not made from tea leaves haha). I haven’t seen it yet this year (nor have I really looked for it), but TJ’s has this GREAT Harvest Blend herbal tea that’s all cinnamony and such and it’s amazing.

    Also, that last picture: Yes. That’s how I feel 99% of the time I do yoga. (Although I do enjoy yoga…but not as much as I enjoy savasana 😛 )

  5. LOL to totally random posts! Love it. I feel you about wanting to do Barre! I had the chance to try it for free, but no way I can really ever afford to go back. Why does it have to be so expensive?! And it is totally not the same at home.

    1. Yeah the problem with many studio classes is that they can be so expensive! You have to accept the fun drop-in fee 😦 group fitness is a huge joy in my life though and you’re right, doing it at home is NOT the same haha

  6. Oh my gosh! The ankle thing is the worst! My husband makes fun of me for having hairy ankles but I would rather have hairy ankles than a massive cut! Ouch!

    There are some really amazing online barre classes that you can try that aren’t that expensive like Physique 57 and barre3. Don’t want to see you prostitute yourself! 🙂

  7. This post made me giggle so much haha. Sorry have been slack-a-lackin on reading this but I just caught up no worries!!!!!!
