There are several blog posts coming at you soon. One with how ridiculous I think it is our government has debt at all let alone the idea to raise the debt ceiling. If I said to you guys "we have 60,000 dollars debt this year but we're thinking of raising it to 70,000 just so we don't go over"....you would have me committed. Dear Lord, please let Dave Ramsey help our government. Or Ryan from Wisconsin-I like him too.

1. What is one word that can best be used to describe you?
Hodgepodge. I am somewhere in the middle of a free spirit and a nerd. I am organized, clean, and like things to make sense but I'm creative in that I scrapbook and love photos and artsy stuff. I like instant gratification...painting and vacuuming make me happy because I see instant results. I also love running through fields. What would you say your word would be Rebecca?

Being 100% free. And it's gonna happen. I would love to know what Katie's dream is!

A good laugh, a long walk, the beach. What helps you Lauren?
5. What is your bedtime routine?
Put on the PJs, wash my face with my Mary Kay TimeWise cleanser, then use my night solution and my moisturizer, floss, brush my teeth, get into bed, and then Adam and I read our nightly devotion together, pray together, and go to sleep. Lovely.
6. What activities did you do in High School? If you could go back, would you do the same or something different?
What didn't I do? LOL. I was that annoying person. Type A.
