a look back at my 2012

i'm back my loves! and i'm beyond ready to ring in the new year tonight!  i hope that all of you had a wonderful christmas.  mine went by way too fast, and i have to admit that the week after christmas i get a little sad :(  i try to stretch christmas out as long as i can by listening to christmas music and watching my favorite christmas movies, but it still makes me a little sad knowing that it's all over.

since today is the last day of the year, i decided to look back at my 2012.  it was full of happiness, tears, ups, and downs.  all together i think it was a great one, i'm sad to see it go, but so looking forward to 2013!

here is my 2012 in pictures.

hey mayans

well we're all still alive and breathing!
whoop whoop!


sorry mayans but you were wrong... way wrong
thanks for making everyone worry about nothin...

anyway moving on.
it's friday, and even better the friday before christmas which means 4 day weekend for me. yay!

first of all i wanna give a shout out to my mom and grandma!
they started their own business called luxury therapeutics and guys business is a boomin.
they make these adorable little neck wraps and heating pads, and even have cute little eye covers!


check them out on opensky

i have two of their heating pads and i use them all the time y'all!  so def go check them out.  if you are still looking for some last minute christmas gifts, those would be perfect!

so since the mayans were wrong, i guess i need to get my butt to wal-mart and finish my christmas shopping...
i'm such a procrastinator.  at least i admit it.

well anyway i hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
i'll leave y'all with some awesome dancing skills from my family and i... check out our little christmas musical here!

woulda, coulda, shoulda

well guys we've made it to december 20th which means it's our last day to do all those things we always wanted to do (well, last day according to a bunch of weirdos who think the world will end tomorrow)

since everyone and their dad are posting about this today i thought i would join in the fun and list all those things i woulda, coulda, shoulda done.

woulda, coulda, shoulda
...wrote an obscene amount of obnoxious fan mail to jessica simpson so i could try to meet her at least once in my lifetime!


woulda, coulda, shoulda
...sent in an application to mtv's the real world.  i always wanted to be on that show.


woulda, coulda, shoulda 
...bought that louis vuitton purse i always wanted.  is $2,000 too much to spend on a purse?

woulda, coulda, shoulda
...went on more random road trips.  you know the ones in college where you are bored at 3 am and decide to drive to myrtle beach?  (the beach sounds way better than a trip to super wal mart at 3 am, and all you wcu grads know what i'm talking about)

woulda, coulda, shoulda
...moved to new york city for at least a summer during college.

woulda, coulda, shoulda
...danced on more bars

woulda, coulda, shoulda
...sang more karaoke 


stay turned for my next post tomorrow... :-)

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!
