Meet Lauren from The Lo Down :-)

well, hello fabulous readers of sweet southern wife!

i'm Lauren, LO, crazy cat lady, call me what you like....i blog over at The LO Down!

crazy cat lady? how'd that get in there?

oh, that might be just why. i insist on dressing my furbabies up for Christmas cards every year.

so, the other day, i was going about my normal blog business, you know, log on, catch up on all the new posts in the blogfeed (does anyone else use that word?), then comments, post my own story and check my mail. i saw i got a reply from a comment i posted on Jennifer's blog, and then she asked me to guest post for her! i was totally thrilled. me, a guest post?
i mean, that is some serious business right there! of course i said yes...!
after i emailed Jennifer back, how do you suppose my reaction was to this great news?
(this is a quiz by the way)

A. i party rock shuffled
B. i attempted the Steve Urkel dance
C. i danced the Carlton dance
D. chanted, Ren & Stimpy's - happy happy, joy joy

have your answer ready? well, you'll just have to read on to find out!

so as i mentioned above, my name is Lauren. i am a late-20's hate hard working, jersey girl. clearly you noticed my not-so-obvious strikeout on the word "hate". yes it's true, i hate working (but really, who doesn't?) well, i should probably rephrase that. i hate GOING to work, but once i'm there i'm okay. you see, i drive 120 miles round trip on a daily basis to get to and from work. it's no walk on the beach. so clearly, i have many interesting drives that i just love to blog about. like the time i was so annoyed i almost made these rules for driving in new jersey into a bill to drop in the hopper at the NJ State Capitol.

alright, that's a little extreme, but a i blogged about it? so, that's pretty close, and i'm sure people are following those rules now....right?

...maybe not.

so a few things about me, and my blog.

  •  i'm pretty much a scatterbrain. ha, that actually used to be my blog title, but i'm known for being very finnicky and i change my space around, a LOT. i can finally say i found my little niche with The LO Down. but don't be surprised the next time you visit me i have new colors :) i average every 3-5 months on a new theme on the blog.

  •  i am extremely obsessed with my cats, Peanut & Linus. they are the most curious little creatures, and i'm so lucky to have them in my home and my heart.

  •  i tend to be on the bit grouchy side, but it makes for some good laughs (for you, not me.) :)
  • i rely on picmonkey to make my photos look really professional.
    • sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

  •  serious people are too much for me.
  • i'm just looking for a fun time and blogger helps me expand my creativity. don't get me wrong, i love the cute little notebook, but is much more thrilling finding cute pics, and fonts to go along with your thoughts for the day. i can't imagine doing this in a real notebook, scotch taping up photos and sayings

  •  if you don't know the movies Weekend at Bernie's or Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead, there's a good chance we may not be friends :D

  •  i am married to the most caring, lovable, handsome man on the planet. one of these days i'll be posting a whole story on how we came to be Mr. & Mrs.

  •  and long story short, i'm sexy and i know it.
if you've made it this far, i congratulate you...i know i can ramble a lot.
so, have i enticed you to come by to my blog? i hope so.
a big THANKS to Jennifer for hosting me today!!
see you soon :)

P.S. the answer is C. The Carlton Dance. i'm seriously good at it!


  1. Love this Laur! So cute! I need to see you do that dance!

  2. I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely can i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail for the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is something which there are not enough persons are speaking intelligently about. My business is very happy i found this around my search for something concerning this.
