. . . for Lauren and Lauren: If you knew me . . .

July 23, 2012

If you knew me . . .


scarf & shorts: old navy  shoes: target  shirt: loft

If you knew me . . .

You would know that the thought of wearing a turtle neck, scarf or anything around my neck used to freak me out.

You would know that it is rare that an hour goes by when I don't think about being pregnant. 

 You would know that patience is something I so badly need but struggle with - from small things like the internet loading to big things like waiting for God's timing.

You would know that I think that I have the best husband in the world.



You would know that I have a lot of insecurities, especially around big groups of people.

You would know that I can become too dependent on sticking to a routine.

You would know that I would almost always choose a night at home than anywhere else.

You would know that if I had three wishes one of them would be that my sister and her family lived close to me.




You would know that one of my best qualities is being loyal.

You would know that my favorite flavor of jelly beans are licorice and buttered popcorn. 


Pin It!

Love the outfit!! Totally something I would wear!
I used to feel the exact same way about turtle necks--I still feel suffocated at times. haha

I love these posts that are floating around right now :) It's so fun getting to know the little quirks of everyone! Now I need to get my post up!

And I'm a little jealous that you get to wear cute scarves in July...I'd DIE if I did that, haha!

This is such a sweet post! I would wish the same thing about my sister...although an hour away is not all that bad.

Carol Hines said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I can say that I did know just about all of those things except the jelly bean flavors!

Katie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Licorice jelly beans are my fave, too! Waiting for God's timing, especially when you're impatient (me, too!)is no easy matter...praying for you <3

Scarves and shorts look really cute together, in my opinion. We're all working on our patience, friend! Eat some jelly beans and you might feel better :)

Love your scarf. Polka dots are a trend this fall. :)

I feel the same way about my family living close--I have a sister coming home in a few days from two years in the Philippines and I can't wait to see her!!!

Erin Rethemeyer said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love the outfit you put together! I love scarfs and can't stop wearing them!
I have a very close friend who just struggled with infertility, I will pray for you the same I did her!
Stay strong!

i don't think anyone has patience for internet loading!! and buttered popcorn jelly bellies are the best!!

Tiffany said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

We have so much in common! Well, except for the jelly bean thing. lol Those flavors are a little gross. But my husband, the sister moving closer thing, the routine, the insecurities, the stuff on your neck. It's like we're twins. =)

I always love the look of a simple scarf and tee shirt, but can never really pull it off for the reason that I start feeling all claustrophobic when I wear too much material around my neck. I love your leopard flats, too!
