. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Late to the Party

March 19, 2013

Late to the Party

I'm a little late to this five things sharing post, but better late than never right?  And I'm sure you're dying to hear five more random facts about me.  Thank you Shanna for tagging me!

I tried hard to think of five things I've never shared.  

sweater: target   leggings: jcpenny   boots: kohls

1.  There is still a good amount of people in my life that don't know I have a blog and every time someone finds out about it I get a little embarrassed.  

2.  I had the chicken pox when I was in second grade and from the looks of this picture I'm pretty sure it was as hard on my mom as it was on me.  

3.  I used to be the pickiest eater growing up.  Until I met Chris and he made me try different foods.  The thought of sushi used to disgust me, but now it is my favorite food. 

4.  I was in dance from about five years old to fourteen.  We wore quite the costumes and I'm pretty sure I had quite the moves.  


5.  Two of my best friends (one from high school and one from college) got married the same summer 7 years ago and both picked the same bridesmaid dress.  To a poor newly married college student this was the best news ever! 

Hope you are having a good week.  Three more work days and then Spring Break - I am very ready!!

I just thought I would take a minute to let you know that I love your blog! You seem so down to earth and very personable, definitely someone I would connect with in person! :)

I am with you on being embarrassed when people find out I have a blog, I'm new-ish to the blog world and I find it awkward when people close to me find out I have a blog!

ha, me and my sisters had the chicken pox at the same time. We have no pictures of it. I'm sure my mom wanted no recollection of that time!

I got married 7 years ago too! You look so young. You still do. ;)

Jen said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Pretty sure you've still got some moves. ;)

Susannah said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

The same dress for two weddings!??!? That's seriously a dream come true! :-) I still have my dress from my best friend's wedding simply in case another friend chooses it for her wedding. :-)

Denise said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Nice post.

Jodi said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Same dress and same color!!?? What are the odds of that? I worn periwinkle in 3 different weddings!! Never the same dress.

Carol Hines said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You shouldn't post such lovely pictures of your mom (without her permission). We were all miserable when you had chicken pox - you refused anything that might have made you feel better. But we loved you then and we love you now!

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

This is one of my favorite posts from you. Those dance moves get an A+ from me...and that picture of your mom..hilarious!! I bet chicken pox is hard on the momma!!

Sybil@PeaceitallTogether said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

At least you had moves! I tried dance classes several times and never quite got it. I still can't dance, although I would still love to learn. Some dreams never die...

Kira said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I was the same way with food but my husband made me try sushi and it is my favorite now too!

Treasure Tromp said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

oh my gosh the bridesmaid thing is the best! No, actually the pictures of you from dance are the best :)

Jennifer @ Delightfully Noted said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Whoa! For a second I thought I wrote this post! Same thing, lots of people in my life have no idea I blog and I feel like a total loser for a split second when they find out! Sushi is my fave, got chicken pox also in 2nd grade, and I danced in crazy costumes too. Knew there was a reason we got along so well!!

Alisa Marie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Seriously I've picked up that sweater atleast 3 times at Target and put it back. I'm too much of a cheapo to pay more than 20 bucks for something! Love your dance pictures! I was in dance when I was little too.

Faith said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I was the same way about sushi! Now I'm obsessed with it, so good!

That is the perfect news to a bridesmaid, lol.

Haha, when people in real life learn I blog I get uncomfortable. I hate the feeling.

And I couldn't help but laugh at the picture with your mom. Moms are the best!

Chrissy + Nate said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love all this! I can relate to almost all of them! I'm a very picky eater as well, but it is Nate who gets me to try different things and my parents can't believe it. I was in dance from ages 3 until 10, until I wanted to become a "cool cheerleader" psh, over-rated. I had chicken pox, but I was two years old. I don't remember it, but I'm sure I wasn't the loveliest patient! Have a good week!

Head to Toe Chic said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love your sweater!! Until I met Robert the thought of sushi disgusted me, but now it's my favorite food too :)

Brittany said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

oh my gosh, how cute were you? Love those dance pictures!

I want that sweater...shoot, I want everything in your wardrobe.

Z and I are both picky eaters...he's a "meat and cheese only" kinda guy. Wish he'd branch out so maybe I'd take the plunge too!

Mostly Lisa said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

How awesome is that they picked the same bridesmaids dresses?! Must have been so great to know you didn't have to purchase a new one.

This was so much fun to get to know a little more about you. :D

Hope you're having a great week also.

Always,
Mostly Lisa

Rachel said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You are so cute! Love that outfit...I can't get over how much you HAVEN'T changed from that picture of you as a little one. So precious!! Hope your week is going well, sweet friend.

Stephanie Wolfe said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

i love that they picked the same dress! too funny!

Danavee said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I can't believe they chose the same dress! What are the chances!?

Laura @ Chaotic Domestic said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I was a picky eater growing up too. I think it did get better once I graduated college, but I don't think I really branched out until I started dating my husband Chris either.
You're so lucky you got to rewear the same dress for two weddings you were in! That's pretty much the best thing a bridesmaid could ask for.

Betty said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ha! Love the chicken pox photo! :) And how I wish some of my friends had used the same bridesmaid dresses....how awesome!

Francesca Giusti said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

love this photos and also your blog! It's so nice!!! I follow you!
Pass to my blog and if it likes you follow me too, I will be so glad :D

Rachel said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

haha, that's awesome that you could wear the same bridesmaid dress, twice! And I love your cardigan. Don't take that lightly, because I'm one of the rare people who don't like cardigans. But that one is so bright and happy that I can't help but love it!

Annie said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Oh my goodness - that photo of you and your mom is the CUTEST! And love your cardi :)

I love your cardigan! I am a picky eater and I should try other food, but sushi is good! I also love the bridesmaid dress.

Very few people IRL know that I have a blog also! At my birthday party, one of my blogging friends met some of my other friends and they looked at her weirdly when she said she knew me from blogging! They never mentioned anything to me so either they are secretly reading or have forgotten about it!

I love your necklace in your sushi picture!

Wow only having to buy one bridesmaids dress would have been awesome! Nice dress too!

smk053078 said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Yay for being late to the party! Loved seeing these old pics of you! precious as can be! And I used to hate sushi too...now I crave it ore than Mexican food! ;)

That bridesmaid dress is awesome! I bet you were excited!

shannonwhitney said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

First off, I love the dance outfits. I have a closet full at home.

Second, that bridesmaid coincidence is unreal! I'd be a little nervous to get too sweaty at the first wedding, but you are the luckiest!

Niki Caron said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I used to be scared and embarrassed about people finding out about my blog, but more and more now I'm posting things about it to my personal facebook, etc. and people are really supportive! You have a great blog so you shouldn't be embarrassed at all! And I was a super picky eater too (still am!) and I also danced! Love your costumes!

Rach @ This Italian Family said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

So crazy they picked out the exact same dresses! How lucky for you! My Chris introduced me to sushi too! I'd only had it once before I started dating him and I did NOT like it. Now it's one of my favorites!

Amy said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

that pic of you and your mom is too funny! love the fringe boots!

Joyce said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

The picture of you and your mom is awesome (although at the time, it probably wasn't haha) and woah that's awesome that your friend's picked out the same bridesmaid dress, lucky you!

Abby said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I made it to your blog! I feel so honored!(Although I don't look that amused in the photo!)

acornmanphotography said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I was picky too before I met my husband, also a Chris. He introduced me to some of my now favorite foods, including sushi:) I had no idea what I was missing haha
