A Trip Down Memory Lane...


So, I've been on a hunt...
for old pictures of Justin and I for our wedding slide show.
 I don't know if I've mentioned this before but I started dating him when I was 15
 {aka when I was a little baby.} 
 Anyways, when I was 15 I didn't know that blogging, twitter or facebook existed.
myspace on the other hand... was my STUFF.
Seriously, the song "she's a myspace FREAK" could have been a bullet point to describe my character.
No joke this would have been what my "about me" section would have consisted of sophomore year:

Hi, I'm Lauren :)
  • Fun
  • Outgoing
  • Friendly
  • Smile ALL the time :) :) :)
  • OBSESSED with myspace/changing myspace layouts/ taking profile pics ;)
  • I love my boyfie {yes, I called him that.} 3/17/07-FOREVER <3

   You don't have to tell me... I know...

 Memory Lane...
This was our first vacation together. We went on a cruise July, 2007 with my family to Key West and the Bahamas. It was honestly the best vacation I've ever been on. It was the first vacation I ever got to take "my boyfriend" on, so that alone made my trip. Every night Justin and I would lay on the top deck on the lawn chairs and listen to the ocean and look up and try to spot shooting stars. Everything about this trip was picture perfect.

This trip is one I'll never forget. It was my first trip to Justin's dad's house In Kentucky {March 2008.} My parents had never let me go anywhere that far with a person of the opposite sex before. I was beyond excited... so excited that I managed to break my collar bone shortly after this picture. I spent the rest of the weekend drugged up at the ER. #longstory
Justin felt horrible and did such a good job taking care of me! :)
{Still love the picture!}
This picture was taken New Years Eve 2007-2008.  We had went out to dinner prior to the picture to celebrate my brother's birthday and decided after to stay at my house for the night. I have no idea why but we decided to take crazy/fun pictures while waiting for the ball to drop. I remember having my little brother take tons of pictures for us. This one was by far my favorite. I think I love this picture so much because it just shows how young, fun and in love we were. {Not that we aren't now- you know what I mean!} We had so much fun this night! :)

I had to post this picture of my little baby! Because he just turned 3 today! :) This was one of the best days of my life! Justin, my dad and I went to the Humane Society to look for puppies and came home with this little guy! I had always wanted a kitten and my daddy let Justin buy him for me! He was the perfect gift and the best gift I've ever received! I will never forget that day! {He got him for me November 2008!}

Needless to say I found a countless amount of old pictures that were very "slide show worthy" after logging onto my old myspace account. Even though I haven't used myspace in years I just can bring myself to deactivating my account? I think it's all the memories... but who knows.
I just can't get over how fast time goes. I was just a baby then... so young and so in love. Now 5 years later I'm getting married to my best friend. My fairytale is finally coming true, I couldn't have asked for a better happily ever after.
