Halloween with a Cowgirl

Can't believe it's Halloween again already; this year seems to have gone by so fast.

Brook and I are moving tomorrow. I'm really excited.  I found Eddie a new home earlier today...I'm going to miss him but I know he'll be better off.

Doodlebug dressed up as a cowgirl to go trick or treating tonight, she looked so cute!









I haven't really taken many photos lately, it felt good to be behind the camera again.

I've decided to do another 365 in 2013, and since I flaked out on my 52 Weeks Inspired by Song Lyrics this year, I'm going to try to do one photo a week based on song lyrics as part of my 365.

I hope all of you are having a great Halloween!

Pixies and Stuff.

I don't really know what to blog about, but I haven't posted in a while, so I figured I should post a little something.

This post is most likely going to be filled with lots of random things.

Brook and I finally found the perfect apartment and we will hopefully be moving within the next week.

I have decided to give my Sheltie Eddie away and get a kitten instead, now I just gotta find him a good home.  I love him so much, but a cat would be much easier for me to take care of on my own.

I never filmed that YouTube video that I told you I was going to in my last post.  I will eventually.  Maybe.

I haven't been to a show since September 7th...when I saw Bowling For Soup.  It's driving me crazy; I need one so bad...

I was supposed to go see The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus do a show with 10 Years, but that one got cancelled out of nowhere; which I was really upset about because I had been looking forward to that one for months.

I got my hair cut and gave it all to Locks Of Love.  I have a pixie cut now.  I really like it.  I've never had one before.

Here is a picture from my Instagram (@laurenmikael) I haven't taken any other pictures of my hair yet.  I'll take a better quality shot soon.



I got a new candle the other day at TJ Maxx called Caramel Fudge Brownies.  It is made by the brand For Every Body.  I love it. It smells so good!

I took a picture of it today while I was burning it for the first time.  I wanted to get a shot before the "caramel" melted and the candle didn't look pretty anymore.

Such a Smart Little Doodlebug

Today we dropped Doodlebug off to visit her Nana for a few days.  On the way there she decided to say the Pledge Of Allegiance...I didn't even know she could do that yet. Such a smart baby girl!



After we dropped her off with Nana my mom and I went shopping.  We went to MAC and Ulta. I'm excited, because I got something from the new Marilyn Monroe collection.    I think I'm going to film a haul video to show you what I got tomorrow.   My first "real" YouTube video, gotta say I'm a little nervous about it.

"...You Never Will Take My Honey Bun Away"

Hey guys!

Lately I've been thinking a lot more about becoming more of a vlogger on YouTube and posting videos more than just live performances from all the shows I go see.   So tonight when Doodlebug decided to randomly start singing I recorded it and put it on my YouTube channel.  It's only 21 seconds long, but super cute! Check it out!


"You Are My Sunshine" performed by Doodlebug:



Oh and to explain the honey bun part at the end...she and her mommy and been singing "Cuppy Cake Song" earlier and I guess she just got a little mixed up.

"Cuppy Cake Song" by it's original artist Amy Castle (1994)



Weird thing is McKynley's (Doodlebug) last name is Castle only hers is spelled Kastl.


As I had mentioned I want to start doing more on YouTube...just filming random things that happen throughout my day, makeup/clothing hauls; album reviews, and maybe instead of just blogging about shows I go to I can do videos and tell you about them...I think that would be more exciting to do rather than writing about them.

Also the other day I found a video on my computer while I was backing up my phone of Pop Evil performing "100 in A 55" that I took when I saw them for the first time in 2011 touring with Crossfade.  

There are Crossfade videos over there too from when I saw them on June 19th 2012.

Hey Lauren Got a Samsung Galaxy S3

Thursday I went to Best Buy and got a new phone.  Samsung Galaxy S3.  I wanted the red one, but they said that one is only available online so I got white instead.  At Best Buy they will buy your old phone from you.  My two year contract was up.  If your contract is up and you buy the phone straight from AT&T it will cost you $199.  At Best Buy it only cost $149.

I ended up only paying $25 for the Samsung Galaxy S3, since my old phone was in such good shape.   So I totally recommend that you buy your phones at Best Buy you can save a lot of money that way.  

Thursday felt a bit like Christmas.  I bought an iPad in January and bought a 2 year warranty for it.  Normally I don't buy warranties on anything, but I am really glad I did this time.  sometime during last week my iPad screen got shattered,  when I was at Best Buy Thursday they gave me a new iPad because my warranty was still good.  I am protecting this one with my life, because I don't have warranty on it.

I love the Samsung Galaxy S3.  I was getting bored with the iPhone.  Everbody has one...and I have an iPad and iPod Touch which are all basically the same, so I just wanted to try something different.  At first I was afraid I was going to miss my iPhone; but honestly I don't, and after having a Samsung Galaxy S3 I don't see why anyone would want an iPhone.

I love the camera on it.  I haven't taken many pictures with it yet, but I have played around with it a little.  I love all the different settings the camera has.


This is a picture of Eddie I took using my phone today.  I did change the colors of the photo with Instagram though.

I also love how if you have a song on your phone you can use it as a ringtone.  I bought "Hey Lauren" by Rookie Of The Year from iTunes using my iPhone earlier this year and since I use iCloud all the songs that were on my iPhone got transfered to my new Galaxy automatically. So now every time I get a call I hear this:

"Hey Lauren" by Rookie Of The Year (Official Music Video)

Which is very fitting for me to use as a ringtone seeing as my name Lauren and it says hey (as in hey you're phone is ringing...answer it.) it doesn't say that in the song but whatever.
