Ashley and Eric_0108

My name is Ashley Lauren. We don’t need any fancy paragraphs here – let’s just go with the key points.

  • I was raised in Wisconsin.  Because of this I love cheese, beer, and will always root for the Green Bay Packers. I don’t even do it because I would be disowned, either.  Honest.
  • My husband and I met on the school bus in 8th grade.  He spent the entire trip trying to shove me off the seat. We’ve been together ever since.
  • I have a 2-year old son. He’s rambunctious and too smart for his own good. His favorite toy right now are wooden alphabet letters. I’ve decided that makes me Mother of the Year.
  • I have never found a dessert I didn’t like.  That being said, Haribo Gummy Bears are my one true weakness.
  • I studied business at the University of Wisconsin – Madison.  The terrace in Madison is still one of my favorite places on earth.
  • My husband and I have an obsession with hedgehogs.  We owned one once, but he turned out to be a kind of devil spawn. It didn’t go over very well.
  • I love traveling and do it as often as I can.  The vast majority of the pictures on this site are ones I took myself, and they are all of places I’ve been.
  • I love riding my bicycle and swimming laps at the gym and I really want to do a Zombie Run someday.  I’ll never do a triathalon though – mostly because I’m not really good at any of my activities.
  • I’ve been participating in NaNoWriMo since 2001.  It’s made me who I am.
  • My favorite thing in the world is to sit outside in the beautiful sunshine with a book.
  • I hate ketchup and socks.
