bits of random + a question ;)

1. This picture makes me want to cry because my hair is so short. And then, it makes me feel guilty for wanting to cry over such a silly thing...basically, there's a lot of emotion in this photo for me.

2. I have incredibly vivid dreams, and for the past three nights, I've been dreaming constantly about Lord of the Rings. This morning, my mother woke me up from a conversation with Aragorn...I was pretty bummed.

3. Do you see that?? Ben Barnes is doing the "Smolder". Ooooh Ben, Ben, Ben.

4. It's warm, it's sunny, it's beautiful...I'm thinking spring is FINALLY here!!! Eep! I'm so happy :D :D :D

5. Okay, so Grace and I have mentioned to each other becoming pen pals! Which is super duper exciting! But I'm gonna go ahead and take a leap and put myself out there...does anyone else want to be a pen pal? I mean, come on, how snazzy to get actual letters in the mail every week!! So if any of ya'll are interested, let me know; it'd be so much fun :D

  1. YES!! I do! Sometimes I'm a failure at writing regularly, but I'd love to try!!

    And hahaha- Ben Barnes doing the smolder. That's just awesome. xD

  2. OMG THAT'S SOOO COOL!! I can't tell you how much I love this post!! I LOVED Ben doing the smolder. You should've heard the swoony, creepy noise I made when I saw the picture. I almost fainted. Not kidding. I wanna be pen pals with you!! *raises hand* Me! Me!! Great post, Lauren. I'm going to be saying that ALOT :))

  3. i'm totally interested! i have four pen pals right now, all of which are AWESOME! but i'd love to be pen pals with you too :D

  4. I am right there with you about the hair thing! My hair isn't *short*, but it's too short for me:)

    Ben... Ben... BEN! gotta love him:) I can't believe all my friends think he is so ugly! whatever:)

  5. Omg! Ben is so cute!!!! My hair’s long and sometimes i get so mad at it and it gets in the way! Agh! But I was going to get a shorter style soon =)

  6. I would be bummed too if my mom woke me up when I was having a conversation with Aragorn. Maybe, your dream will start tonight where it left off last night. Who knows? It can happen. :)

  7. Awesome post.... the smolder. xD
    I would love to be pen pals with you! :D

  8. Haha, I hate waking up from a really great dream!!! And one with Aragorn....I would have been mad too. ;)
    Wow, that picture of Ben is AMAZING!!! He looks so much like Flynn!! And he IS pretty cute. *giggles*

    Oh, I'd love to be penpals....but I'm still working with my parents on that. *sighs* I'll definitely get back to you if it works out!!

    Love always,
    Lily =D

  9. Oh my, do I ever love that picture of the rose!!

  10. Oh goodness, putting Aragorn and Flynn next to each other was a bad idea...I just had a heart attack!! ;D

  11. Miss Lauren, you've been promoted over on my blog!!! Come check it out. ;)

  12. Oh gosh, this post made me laugh so hard! XD

    I would *love* to be pen pals with you! I would just have to ask my mama, but I've been pan pals with other people before so it should be fine :)

    Great post girlie <3 Oh, haha, and I've had a dream with every single member of the Fellowship of the Ring-- I had two with Orlando Bloom/Legolas, one with Elijah Wood and Sean Astin (Frodo and Sam), I had a pretty vague one with Viggo/Aragorn, and I *think* I had one with Sean Bean..... and one with Gimli, but anyway, too funny! :P
