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! :-)


New Pics.. and more!

Good morning to all!
I thought I'd post some pictures from our little get together the other night. Also, if you're on any social networking sites, please add me! Facebook - search for my email: Laurie9797@yahoo.com Twitter - Laurie9797 I have a myspace, but I can't say that I check it more than once or twice a year! LOL

I look a little tipsy here... but I promise you I didn't have a sip! I can't say the same for John! Ha!

Me with some of the girls - L to R - Kristie, Jil, Me, Amber - Jil's lap is nice and comfy if you were wondering! :)
Me with Michelle.. Not sure who is giving me rabbit ears, but I'm sure they got an elbow! :-)

Me with Jil - Don't let her fool you, she's wearing 4 inch espadrilles! LOL

We all had a great time... I love spending time with my friends! There are a lot more pictures, but I'm kinda lazy! Chris - I'll get a picture of me in my adorable skirt soon! It's drying now, so I plan to wear it again soon! :) I was actually wearing it in all of these pictures, but it didn't make it in!

Tonight is my cooking class... wahooo!!!!!!!
I'll be learning how to make:
  1. The best healthy ooey-gooey chocolate cake ever

  2. Easy and delicious carrot cake with cream cheese frosting

  3. Miniature cherry covered cheesecakes

  4. Scrumptious Peach shortcake

Love and hugs to you all... Happy Tuesday! :)

I just stumbled across your blog (I saw your comment on Jack Sh*t's blog). I will be coming back to read more! I had the gastric banding surgery a year ago. My blog www.phoenixrevolution.net talks about that. But I'm curious...you're learning to make all those desserts? I thought bypass patients couldn't do sugar because of dumping syndrome?
I'll be back!

Aww, thanks everyone! :)

Tricia - I'd LOVE for you to do that! It'd be great to meet you!

Christine - This class was a healthy baking class.. all the recipes used low fat alternatives. I tried everything, but didn't eat my full serving of anything. Great question! Although - I am over 2 years out, and am able to eat the full out fatty and sugary things.. I sometimes tolerate and other times I'm paying for it for hours and hours!
