the soundtrack of my life…

Ok, well maybe not ever, but I had a great weekend!

I think this birthday weekend was definitely in my top 5 birthdays!

It started Thursday, when my coworker and boss took me to lunch at the Cheesecake Factory.  Nothing makes me happier than an order of Miso Salmon and some delicious dessert!

Friday morning started off with me having to take my car to the dealership because a couple of weeks ago my CD changer died. (I was so unimpressed!)  So needless to say, I was excited to get my new changer installed just in time for the birthday celebration!  When I got to work, my coworkers surprised me with a Publix cake, cards, balloons and a cookbook!  How nice was that?

After I left work Friday afternoon, the real party started.

Yes, yes ya’ll!  It’s a holiday today!

The annual celebration of the day that the world was graced with my presence!  🙂

I take celebrating my birthday seriously and usually celebrate for weeks or months…and this year is no different!  I’m going to be keeping the party going through mid-November!

What’s that number 1 zodiac sign? LIBRA!

I said, what’s that number 1 zodiac sign? LIBRA!

Is it Aries? NO! Is it Leo? NO! Is it Scorpio? NO!

Go, Lauren, it’s ya birthday…IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!

*If you’re in the A, I’m gonna be partying at Utopia tonight…come holla at ya girl!*

It’s been a minute since I’ve recommended some music to check out. Here are a couple of recently released albums that I’ve checked out…and so should you!


You already knew I was gonna tell you to pick up Jazmine Sullivan’s album ‘Fearless’.  I mean, how can you NOT pick it up!  It’s a great album!  (By the way, Eb the Celeb I TOTALLY agree with you on the track listing…I had to take you’re suggestion and switch things around!)  I can’t wait until November to see her live when she’s here with Maxwell!


No, I haven’t lost my mind!  You really should check his album out.  It really quite good.  Like for real.

There are still a few albums that I need to check out — especially Joe and Ne-Yo; plus there are a bunch of albums being released in the next few weeks…

WOW!  I can’t believe it’s been 200 posts already!

How You Live Your Life

You have a good sense of self control and hate to show weakness.

You’re laid back and chill, but sometimes you care too much about what others think.

You prefer a variety of friends and tend to change friends quickly.

You tend to dream big, but you worry that your dreams aren’t attainable.

Salutations and what it do? (c) Paul Wall (Thanks, modi.)

I hope you all had a great weekend.  I know I did, and it was a lot busier that I thought it was going to be.

Let’s see…

I’m gonna admit it, I care what people think about me.  And depending on the person, I might care too much what people think about me.

Most people would never know it because for the most part, I’m the shit.  That sounds cocky right?  Well, it’s true.  In the majority of group settings, I’m good.  The life of the party.  Everyone’s favorite – Lboogie.  She’s cool,

But when Lboogie turns off, and you’re left with plain ol’ Lauren…that’s another story.  I find that my mind races with lots of thoughts – what do they think about me?  Am I looking crazy?  Will I say something that makes me sounds crazy?  Have I said too much?  Do I need to say more?  Can they tell that I’m a little self-conscious right now?  It’s like I go back to elementary school when I grew 6 inches and stood out from everyone.

When do you stop caring?  I know that I’ve come a long way, but at the same time, I have a long way to go.  I remember caring so much about what people thought of me and being so self-conscious that it took over everything I did.  I was uncomfortable in my own skin…

I’m a lot more comfortable with me now, but I still have my moments when I second-guess myself.  Maybe one day, I’ll be 100% okay with the person I am and have become…
