My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)

Thanks to Susy at Shrinking Susy... for giving me this blog award! Susy is a fellow WLS'er as well, and she shares her days with us.. She's such a great person! If you have not checked her out yet, please do!

********************Why I Love Blogging******************

I love blogging for many reasons... the main reason is because there is such a great little community of people that I feel close to, that I have never even met. We communicate through our blogs and our comments, and I consider these people my friends. I also blog to vent my frustrations with life in general... to be real about weight loss surgery... to hold myself accountable... to give and receive support... etc... the list can go on forever! :)

As far as tagging people goes... it's so hard to pick and choose people, so if you are reading this, consider yourself tagged! If I read your blog, know that you have touched my life in some way. If I haven't read your blog, let me know who you are so I can start reading! :) Also, take a look at the "My Peeps" section off to the right.. I know I need to update it a bit, but those are some of my favorite blogs! :)

Hope everyone is doing well.. thanks again Susy! :)
