Hi! I'm Lauren and if I could describe myself in one word, it'd be bubbly. I am currently working as a nurse and going to school to become a family nurse practitioner. I enjoy trying new restaurants, but wouldn't dare call myself a "foodie." I think every meal should be finished off with dessert, even if it's just a little piece of chocolate. Junky reality shows on Bravo and Glee currently consume my DVR. I couldn't tell you who my favorite artist or musician is, but I love going to art festivals, concerts, and broadway shows. I have no formal background in dancing, but I'm not afraid to bust a move or two. I studied abroad in Spain and traveled a little bit while I was there, but I would love to go back and see more. Even though I've lived in Chicago (suburbs) my entire life, I don't think I have seen everything the city has to offer. I recently adopted a pup named Noodles who looks incredibly dapper in his bow tie collar.
