A few exciting things!

The first rather exciting thing is...., well if you read my DIY post then you know that there is something special planned for Monday's now! So Monday's now are going to be random day. Random posts, thoughts, facts or anything i happen to have on my mind! sound good?

So today my mom so kindly got me up a pack of gum. Old fashion made with rain forest chicle.
Its so good and looks so cute. And I have also been dying to try and make ratatouille ever since i saw the movie it looked just SO delicious. I'm sure you thinking, where is Lauren going with this. Well let me tell you, ratatouille has onions in it right? and I have chewing gum.
So toady's random fact is about both of these things.
Did you know that chewing gum while cutting, peeling or dicing onions wont make you cry as much? How cool and random is that? Anyways oddly enough i didn't end up chewing gum and started crying like a baby! it really hurts.

So that's the first exciting thing
