I love your list. You can learn a lot about someone through them.

I'm excited about my weekend. I'm going to see my oldest son and his girlfriend, Kayla in Fayetteville.

Hope you have a great weekend!

I loved the lists...great idea! I didn't see any of the movies you posted, but I did see 4 Christmases. Very cute!!

Kaitlyn said...

Cute list! I love part a, #2. I also can follow with part b, #5.

Just to let you know, I'm pretty sure that's an edited version of the Marley and Me poster, which is advertising marijuana. Anyways, I read the book, and I can't wait to see the movie!

Cali Girl said...

Hey, thanks for coming over to my neck of the woods. I think I did find you when I was commenting on Kelly's page!

PS I have seen all of those movies so far except for the harvey one... enjoy them. I love movies!

What a great post Lauren!! I loved learning more about you, so you are saying you would never be up for a game of hoops or a round of golf?? :) And why did you have to go and put that picture of Brad Pitt on your blog? I could just stare at him all day!

My name is Megan... said...

love this post!!!! You had great answers. I wanna play next friday!

Lauren said...

I liked reading more about you...I think you and I are similar in a lot of ways!

I would love to see Bride Wars. A friend of mine saw Benjamin Button and liked it, but said it was loooong.

By the way, my athletic ability? Um, none. :)
