Blogger Tags: 6 Things about Me & Splash Awards

I've been tagged by Sherri of Just the Five of Us and Alice of Searching for Style to do a post on 6 uninteresting things about myself and tag 6 other bloggers to do the same. Also, Copy Cat Chic tagged me in the "Splash Awards" where you list a bunch of blogs that you love and tag them. I'm honestly not much of a tagger because it's so hard for me to pick only a few blogs that I love, so I'm tagging everyone who wants to join in to post a link on either of these in the comments section.


1) I agree with people when they say "time is money" but I'd rather get paid in time. My husband and I have made some decisions & life choices that have left us with less money & more time. At times it can be a little tough (we'd love to travel more and furnish the whole house right away!!!) but in the end we're always happy with the choices we've made. Time with each other and our son is what's most important to us. My husband's a teacher & is about to have the whole summer off starting next week & I'm so excited!!!!

2) I love taking pictures of my finished work. When I take a picture of a finished project in a client or friend's home, I feel totally content. Almost like it's mine. Haha I know how weird & creepy that sounds but it's almost like I don't need that gorgeous lamp in my house because it's in so-and-so's house. Living vicariously I guess??


3) Every 5 years of my life, I've cut my hair really short. (chin length) it's very weird & I never realized it until the last time I did it, but literally at 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 I've gotten the "chop!"

4) Almost every day (when the weather's nice enough) my toddler & I go outside & I lay out a blanket in the grass and we read & eat snacks & play in the yard. It's one of my favorite times.


5)My toddler is watching Teletubbies right at this minute so I can finish this post (and I'm feeling guilty, so must run!!!) eeeeek bad mama!!

6) I'm pregnant!!! (I'm almost finished with first trimester (cannot wait for that!!) and now can tell you that I have been SO SLEEPY for the past few months and was a pretty worthless helper getting things done efficiently with the move!!!) I'm also showing way sooner (I guess they say this is normal the second time around??) and am wondering how big I'll get this time?!!! :) (The pic below is a little over 4 months during my first pregnancy and I'm almost that size right now) We're so excited & the baby's due around Christmas- New Years!!
so, whoever would liek to participate in the game of tag, just post a link in the comments section!!
xoxo,


lauren

Yay! So happy that the cat is out of the bag. Congrats again on the new baby! He/She is going to be one cute kid! I can't wait to see that belly, I mean you, soon.

Congratulations on the new baby!! That is so exciting. I have started showing sooner this time around, too. Guess that tummy knows what's coming!

Eileen said...

Congratulations! All the best to you and your family!

And I think these were all very interesting little facts!

Older and Wisor said...

Just goes to show you that everything is relative...I'm growing my hair out "long". Long meaning chin length!

Congratulations, and after having 5, my answer would be YES, hands down you will show more...but my baby bubble was never as cute as that ;)

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

Congratulations!! I am so happy for you. And look at how cool you are, telling us that as one of your 6 "uninteresting" things! That is totally interesting and exciting. (All of your other things were fun, too.) Congratulations again. I wish you all the best. xoxo

Congrats to you! Yay! :)

Crystal said...

Congrats on your good news!!! First visit to your blog and I am loving it. My husband and I also made the choice over money and time. At times it feels contraining and yet liberating in the same respect (I guess it depends on what I want to buy at the time, HA HA!)
Will be back.

Maria Killam said...

I loved your post!! The blanket, the pregnant tummy, the first piece about making choices, everything! I got a splash award too but I didn't want to tag a bunch of blogs either so I'm going to do it your way and do 6 uninteresting things. . .

Terri said...

Lauren!!! What wonderful news! I am so happy for you both. That is just amazing news - and you waited 'til the end of your list for all your die-hard readers to find. Look at you, you teeny tiny adorable little thing -you must look so adorable pregnant. Maybe you will get bigger this time but hopefully it is very manageable!

Congrats and have a fun summer with your hubby.

congratulations Lauren,
There is nothing more beautiful than a pregnant woman. I hope you are well, look after yourself. I think it is easier second time round because you dont have time to think about it with #1 running around.

That's so exciting, Lauren! I'm so happy for you and your handsome husband (loved the picture of you two dancing!).
Love your little bump picture too. My body really went for it the second and third pregnancies. All you can do is enjoy it, since it goes by pretty quickly.
