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! :-)


Are You on Facebook?

If so, please add me!  I'm so far behind on reading blogs, but want to feel connected somehow!   I had to just mark everything as read in my reader and start from scratch today. I HATE doing that, but I had over 1,000 unread blog posts... A tad overwhelming! :(

Anyway, please add me on Facebook if you haven't already - Laurie9797@yahoo.com  If you don't mind leaving a message that you're a blog reader, that way I can make sure I accept you! :)  

I will make a valiant effort to catch up with you all. I truly miss reading about everyone's day to day life! :(




I'm so sorry I haven't updated in well over a month.   I had my revision surgery on March 10th.  So far all is well on the recovery. I go back to the doctor on Wednesday for my 6 week check up.    I ended up getting some major pains in all my joints about a week after surgery, and it ended up being gout.  So, a week after surgery, I got put on steroids.  It's not fun being able to eat just a few ounces and being constantly hungry because of steroids... Ugh!

Besides that, life is alright... I feel like I'm at a crossroads in every part of my life, so I guess it's just a time of self discovery.    I feel like I just went through that a few years ago, but here we go again!

My Scentsy business is going pretty well.  My team has grown from just me to having 7 people on it!   I'm excited.  We're expanding to the UK and Germany next week, so if any readers over there are interested in a wonderful opportunity, please contact me! :)

My cousin is coming in from New York next week - I'm super excited! We're probably going to visit San Antonio... fun! :)    He's also going to spend some time in Dallas since I can't take the whole week off of work... I just used 9 days of sick and vacation during my surgery. :(

I hope all is well with everyone.  I am working on trying to catch up with you all.  
Laurie :)
