FACT #28

I am handicapped when it comes to opening cardboard food boxes.
the ones with the tab things

I cannot leave a box untouched without it looking like I murdered the box and then tried to make it look like an accident.

then I have to open the bag on the inside

Brunch or Dutch?

Friends! Tomorrow is Thanksgiving!

First, I apologize for a large absence.
Remember my last video and how awful my voice sounded? Well, let's just say that that was the best of it. And I was not able to talk for the next 6 days.

BUT I lived! And ready to tell you another story up on Chronicles of Datelandia.

Have you told your friends and family to subscribe to my YouTube channel? In fact, have YOU subscribed to my YouTube channel?!

If you haven't, then I will NOT be thankful for you tomorrow.
If you do, I will forever be grateful. Plus, it's probably a really smart thing, smart people do.
 cause smart people always do smart things
Share how much you love me, and I will share how much I love you. 
I tend to get emotional easily

Kira Sabin.
If you are reading this: Hello, I'm secretly, but not so secretly obsessed with you and I think we are personally the same emotional person.  And I think we could bond over how mildly embarrassing we both are to our friends and family.
You get me, girl.

Kira Sabin is my emotional doppelganger.

She's like that wise advice or comment that your parents gave to you that one time and tell you exactly what you needed to hear at that certain point in your life. 
And at first you don't really get it, but then later, after the fact, you totally do and your mind is blown!

Kira Sabin is a life coach or love coach? 
I don't know really, but she's kick ass. 

And after I found one of my friends on Facebook posted this recent article, like I said, MIND BLOWN PEOPLE!
I about peed my pants.

This article was exactly what I needed to hear at the right time in my life.
And I feel like she wrote it about me. Is that weird?

You're probably thinking Lauren, really? You're acting like a teenage girl reacting to a Justin Bieber song.
But if you know me at least a little bit, read this article, and you tell me this isn't me.
I triple dog, dare you!
Oh it's on.

Anyways, she has an awesome website called And if you just browse around just a little, you'll realize why I love her.
Check her out. She's awesome and I wish she read this so we could be best friends, get brunch and mimosas on the weekends, and Instagram it all like normal besties do. Duh.

I don't ask for much.

Text #4

More things you shouldn't text a girl that you're trying to date...

Let's talk about your over use of the word "Righteous."
I'm 100% sure you grew up in Utah your entire life. So unless you've "shred some nar" in a place that isn't completely landlocked. Speak English!
Just because you can handle some "pow" for about 5 months out of the year that there's snow on the ground, that doesn't make you a bro.
And I'm definitely NOT your bro.

The Call vs. The Text

I'm up on Chronicles of Datelandia again talkin' about "The Call vs. The Text".
I pretty much just wrote that sentence with my head swerving-it's the sassy pants

If you love it or have any questions leave a comment, write me an email at, or share all this love!  Share on social media, on your blog, on your YouTube channel.
Let's be friends already?!

Or the best, subscribe to my channel on YouTube
If you didn't know you can do that. Well you can!

The Call vs. The Text

We all know you're curious about my mug.
It's from Target (what else is new).
And since I'm horrible at removing tags such as this.
The mug was on sale for $2.
I'm gonna pop some tags and I've got $18 STILL in my pocket...

101 Updates

Hello lovelies!

I am happy to say that I've been going strong at trying to accomplish at least one or two of my list items a month. I hope I can keep it up.

But at the same time I haven't finished my list. Is that bad? 

32. Try 5 new recipes 1/5
White Chicken Chili/Soup
I found this recipe on Pinterest, and as the cooler weather comes in this recipe is perfect. And not to mention SUPER EASY. I mean, I'm no cook and I could make this taste good. Seriously, there are 5 ingredients. You can find the recipe here. Although, I recommend using 1/2 the chicken broth they recommend if you want a more chili consistency and 5 cups of you want a more soupy. I even tried to get it to reduce, and it didn't do much with the full 6 cups.

66. Watch "Practical Magic" while drinking margaritas October 2013

If you have never seen "Practical Magic" then you won't get the significance of the margaritas. Well my dear friend Erica has never seen that movie. And myself and Julia felt like we needed to ring in October with the movie and some good old margaritas. I recommend the combination.

75. Go to a University of Utah football game October 2013
 My oldest and dearest Anna and her husband are season ticket holders to all the University of Utah football games. Since moving up to Salt Lake I've literally moved from BYU central to U central. And I love it. Anna was nice enough to give me her husband's ticket one night and I had a blast. I plan on going to more next season. Thanks Anna!
