My Morning Routine

My Morning Routine: In Theory and In Reality

In Theory
6:00AM-Wake up wide awake
6:15AM-Start morning walk
6:45AM-End morning walk
7:00AM-Breakfast and Bible Study
7:30AM-Finish getting ready for work, blow dry hair, put make up on, look professional
7:55AM-Arrive at work ready for the day

In Reality
7:00AM-Wake up and slowly make way to the shower
7:30AM-Brush teeth and decide no time for make up or to blow dry hair and throwing on a comfy outfit
7:45AM-Make lunch
7:55AM-Arrive at work

I’m trying to get the reality to look more like the theory because I think that kind of a morning looks great.

10 things I have in my purse that are absolutely necessary

My purse is way to big and most of the time it hurts my arm to carry.  But there are certain things I just have to have in my purse.  These are the things that I never leave home without them in my purse.

1. My Keys
2. A Book
3. My Planner
4. Chapstick
5. At least 3 pens (gotta have a backup)
6. EpiPen and Benadryl
7. Ibuprofen
8. Wallet
9. Flashdrive
10. IPod

What can you not leave the house without?

My Name

My name is Lauren.  If I was were a boy my name would be Preston.

Lauren means: laurel, which is a small European evergreen tree.

My parents did not name me after a laurel.  They named me after a family member.  And right now I can’t remember which one.  (Mom, Dad, want to help me out?)

I’ve always like my name.  But I have noticed that growing up there were always a lot of Laurens in my grade.  It must have been popular.  In high school we had 5 Lauren’s in my grade.  Yeah, talk about confusing.

And even now my best friend is a Lauren.  It must just be a good solid name 🙂  I’m not complaining.

Having all of those prompts to write about in July were super helpful to get me writing!  I have created a list, (over there –>) of prompts to reference when I get stuck.  Hopefully that will keep me writing even when I don’t know what to write about.

Check it out and comment if there is anything you think I should add to the list.
