Blog sounds like dog but not as cuddly

Happy 4th of July all you really cool people that read muh blogs!!!!! And for those of you who aren't reading this blog... What's wrong with you?! Bunch a weirdos.. So, I'm pretty much on cloud 9 tonight.. If there was a cloud 10 I'd be on it.. But I don't think they invented it yet.. Let's just give it some time. They'll get there. Why am I on cloud 9 you ask? Well, I'll tell you why. #1. Fireworks are pretty much the coolest things ever invented. I'm convinced that back in the day, when the Chinese guys were inventing them, they thought, "There is gonna be some crazy blonde chick living in America who is gonna love these suckers.. Lets make them for her.. And for all the children of the world." Well good job men, you have made the world a better place. Reason #2. I looked in the mirror just now and remembered "Hey I'm a blonde!" Thats always cool. And then there is the main reason. Reason #3. Ladies and Gentlemen, I just reserved four tickets to Rome for a mini vacation with my sisters and Beka Hardt for August. I don't know if you understand what Italy means to me and my sisters. Italy is literally our dream. We have only hoped to go to Italy for years now and finally us girls said we were done talking about it and dreaming about it and its just time to go. I mean, we aren't getting any younger and the music thing doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon so we're going. And what's even better is we have been saving all our frequent flyer miles for a while so we are flying to Italy for free. So all the crazy flights and traveling totally pays off!! We always love taking sister + Beka Hardt trips (Beka is pretty much our 4th sister) and I think this one is gonna trump them all. I have a perma-smile on my face right now. Now we just have to find somewhere to stay.. Anyone have any villas or apartments in Italy you'd like us to stay at? Just feel free to let me know ;) I can't even contain the excitement. I'm gonna be going to the place I've dreamed about for years. Looks like after August I'm gonna have to find a new place to dream about going to. I think I already know what it will be.. Pretty sure it's Israel. That would be fantastic. Traveling is one of my most favorite things. I just want to see the world. And I've gotten to experience so much of it at the age of 24 but there is so much more for me to see and I plan on seeing all of it. Yup, I'm a big dreamer and I'm totally ok with that. I've got a lot of time to fulfill those dreams. Oh, lets not forget little #4. I'm reading an incredible book by Philip Yancey called A Skeptics Guide To Faith. I'll admit I was a little embarrassed to buy it cause I really didn't want the women checking me out at the Christian bookstore to think I was skeptical about my faith cause me and God are doing pretty good right now. But honestly, anything that Philip Yancey has written I'm gonna buy. That man knows how to write a book that make's God feel so real and tangible to me and it just blows me away. I am literally taking notes every page of this book. So if you need something new to read then get it. If you don't read, you should still get it. Cause I told ya so. And like I always say, "Lauren is always right." #5. I think I'm gonna go to bed now friends of mine. It's been real. I always love that I can just write a little blog and send it into cyber space and inevitably someone will read it. Even if its me forcing my mother to read it, someone IS still reading it.
Well, keep it real... (Whatever THAT means..)
