Tag Award and Before Christmas Update!!!

I have a bunch of stuff to say, but first off I recieved the "Tag" Award from Stephanie at With a Hopeful Heart and Jessica at Ethin's Heart Still Beats. I'm suppose to share 7 things that you may not know about me, which will be hard as I share alot. Then, I'm suppose to "Tag" some people. Here it goes...

1.) I have an anxiety disorder which can keep me on the negative side of things some days along with stressing me out... you may not know that because I don't let most people know and I try my hardest to stay on the postive side of things.

2.) My parents got a divorce 4yrs. ago and they are each in a relationship with someone which took me a bit of time to get use to, but I like Judy (my dad's gf, my bf's aunt) and Jeff (my mom's bf).

3.) I love to wear crazy looking knee socks in the winter time... not only are they cute, but they keep my legs warm.

4.) My mom went to college to be a dietichen, which came in handy when I was born and diagnosised with a complex CHD.

5.) My wonderful little brother and I are 11yrs. apart... it was a big ajustment to going from baby of the family to semi-middle (I don't really consider myself the middle child as we are so far apart in age). I love my little brother, Aaron, so much that it was worth loosing my baby spot in the family.

6.) I was 19 when I got my drivers liscence because I was scared of driving, still kind of am. I don't have my own car so I usually don't drive much.

7.) I got 6 stiches in my bottom right lip when I was 7yrs. old from getting hit by a swing... someone was on the swing, I wasn't paying attention (or listening to my dad) and got to close... I was bleeding ALOT because I'm on blood thinners. With my mom and dad's help I got to a nearby hospital and got a plastic surgeon to do some stiches and I got antibiotics... they didn't have time to numb my mouth for the stiches, so I felt all the pain... I was NOT HAPPY!

Here are the people I "Tag":

-Cain's Mommy at Clinkscale's Family Blogspot
-Sydnie's Mommy, Sundie at Sydnie's Sweet Heart
-Trista's Mommy, Amanda at Trista Faith Blogspot
-Casey's Mommy, Gina at Family Talk

**Update on Me**

I've been doing well, getting over a small cold. The past week and a half I had been studying like crazy and doing finals. Monday at 2pm it was all over and I was SO relieved! I've been trying to relax for the past couple of days, but with Christmas two days away I've still been busy... such is life. I have to do some more shopping today with money I don't have, but the small gifts I give to me family are special either way. I feel behind in so many things like this blog, spending time with my bf, bills, etc. Luckly, I have almost a month break before next semester to get some things done and also relax. I can't believe the year is almost over, where did time go? This year has been a busy and crazy one for me... having a serious boyfriend, family, my 1st ER visit in a long time, my dad losing his job, me having to pay for me own health insurance for the 1st time, hard semesters in college, etc. BUT I've had a very blessed year to and for that I'm grateful! =D
That's about all I've got right now.
I hope you ALL have a VERY MERRY AND BLESSED CHRISTMAS!!! I know I will!!

Sending LOTS of **Heart Hugs** and LOVE!!! Keeping LOTS of kiddos/adults in my prayers especially Logan and Derrick!!

With LOTS of Hope, Love, and Faith,

  1. Glad you're doing well and that the semester is OVER! Have a great Christmas, and thanks so much for the prayers!!

    Big heart hugs and prayers,

  2. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas holiday Lauren!!

    Stef, Ryan, Wyatt and Logan

  3. I wear crazy socks too. In fact because I am so short and they come up so high... my one friend calls them Chastity Socks! I think it's cute. I am sure I will be donning some today for Christmas Eve.

    On a side note... are you on facebook? It'd be nice to add another to my "People with Heart" category!

  4. You are so sweet to add me to the Tag award. I will try to work on that this week. I'm going to have to think very hard to come up with 5 things people don't know about me. I'm like you I'm a very open book. But after reading yours I realized even when people think they tell all there is still alot we don't know about each other. I am about to go through my pictures and send you some for your montage. I'm so sorry to hear that you were sick over the holidays. I've thankfully never had food poison and hate that you had to experience it.
