washed (beach) glass

Although this summer is nowhere near done, one thing that will be a trademark of the summer is washed glass. My person just discovered the fun involved in searching for glass, and has become a wee bit obsessed about it. Which is funny. And a little endearing. He never goes a day at the beach without scouring the sand looking for a little piece of green glass. The day usually ends in him forgetting he put his glass on his towel, shaking the sand off, and losing his treasured glass. He gets a wee bit upset over that one piece of washed glass. It's funny. And once again endearing. His new thing is trying to find a purple piece, I'm thinking it's because I told him those are my favorite. At least I'd like to imagine so, but it would make sense seeing as he started saying this after I told him the purple's are my fave. That boy is just the bee's knees, I'm tellin' ya.

new directions (like glee)

As you can plainly tell, I've been absent from the blogosphere for awhile. And since getting myself lost I've been thinking a bit about my blog. 
Here's my current problem with my little bloggie:
When I don't actually remember to take a picture of my outfit, I don't blog. And here's the weird part... I don't consider this a "style" or "fashion" blog at all. I'm not stylish enough for that. So why only post when I have a picture of me wearing clothes?* Woah. Came out wrong. But you get what I mean, right?
What I'm saying is I want this to be more of a... Lauren blog with a few outfits thrown in a week. Like maybe twice a week or something. But still post in between. About things I've done... Places I've been. Funny things I've seen. You know? Does that sound lame? I don't really care too much if it does, because that's what I wanna do and it's myyyy blog. Na na na na boo boo. 
This whole idea will be starting... today. Hopefully. (:

wisdom... not from me of course.

Sometimes I just see things that I think everyone in the world needs to see. Or read. Whatev. But this is one of those things... hence me posting it. So read it. All the way through, there may be something you need to read.

long time no talkie

*Insert boring excuses for why I haven't been blogging, 5 so sorry's and 3 it will never happens again although we all know that's a lie*

Phew, now that that's done lets get going. 

For real, one of the best nights of the summer. My cousin Casie, Scarlett and I all went to the beach to watch the sunset. It just so happened I had my Ukulele with me, and Cas had her guitar. So we jammed for awhile. I finally figured out the strumming on my Uke and I'm oh so happy. I could never understand the muting, but I've got it now! Hip, hip, hooray!! There are actually more of these pictures over at Scar's blog. So check 'em. 
Okay, so what else has been going on in the fabulous life of Lauren? I've been working... a lot. Which is okay, I'm just tired. 
I love quotes and I found this one from Audrey Hepburn tonight:

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing; kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.
