Hey Hey Blog World + BH&G

My friends will laugh, but I just bought a subscription to Better Homes & Gardens.  I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to write my first blog post.  Hi, my name is Lauren, or Laur for short, and I’m just going to say it…I like being an adult.  Well, if you consider 26 an adult…I do.  I was surprised to come to this realization because I really enjoyed college and thought that “real life” would be OK, but thought I would never be as content as I was in college.  However, three years after graduating, I am finding that “real life” aka “adulthood” isn’t all that bad.  In fact, it’s great.  Call me boring, but I enjoy having a steady job that pays the bills, I like having my own apartment, I like being in a committed relationship, and I like blanket baskets.  YES I SAID IT.  I LIKE BLANKET BASKETS (College Lauren is asking: WHO ARE YOU??).  Other things I like?  My dog, crafts/DIY, plants (ehrmeghad I love plants), fashion, exercise (mostly running, but I can’t do that anymore … because I’m an old lady adult…more to come on that later), travel, and cooking.  That’s a lot of stuff, which is why I’m a “Laur” {Jack} of all trades, master of some.  I’m pretty good at a lot of things (hence the “master of some”), but I have so many interests it’s hard to consider myself like an Emeril Lagasi in the kitchen or Michelangelo in the arts (…& crafts…you get my point).  [Shout out to Ali for the idea!] So I guess now’s where I get to “the point of this blog.”  I don’t really have a point.  I’ll probably post a lot DIY things, plants, dogs, some fashion, workouts, etc., and talk about how much I enjoy being an adult.  I recently moved to San Francisco with my boyfriend with not a friend in over 400 miles, so I have a lot of spare time that I need to occupy (and do something other than binge watch Dexter).

Oh, so back to the Better Homes & Gardens subscription.  I have loved Better Homes & Garden since college (College Lauren is actually saying “FINALLY” to this subscription) and saw a post on Facebook about Best Tropical Flowers for your Patio.  Naturally, I clicked because I HAVE A BALCONY AND LOVE PLANTS.  Then they got me in with a $5.99 subscription offer for one year.  How could I say no?  Can’t.
