4: Four Facts Survey

Happy Monday, friends! I hope y'all had a great weekend. Today, I'm doing the 4 Facts Survey that my blogger friend, Kylie nominated me for! So here we go...a little bit more about me!

Four names that people call me other than my real name:

1. McGreeves 
2. McG
3. McGiggles
4. Laur

Four jobs I've had:

1. Babysitter
2. Nanny
3. Student
4. Investment specialist

Okay, so some of those are stupid but honestly my "real" jobs have been a nanny and my current role in the financial industry. I talked a little bit about my nannying role here.  

In regards to my current role, I don't talk much about it because with my licensing you have to be careful what's put out there on social media. So, for the most part I've decided to keep my current job private.

Four movies I've watched more than once:

1. 50 Shades of Gray
2. Pearl Harbor
3. The Hangover
4. Lion King

A little all over the place there...just like me ;) And in regards to 50 Shades of Gray...NO. SHAME.

Four books I'd recommend: 

4. The Best Yes

I love to read and always have so these are just 4 that came to mind. I linked them to where you can buy should check it out!

Four places I've lived:

1. Raleigh, NC
2. Irmo, SC
3. Clemson, SC
4. Charlotte, NC

My apartment view of my current home, Charlotte. 

Four places I've visited:

4. Bilbao, Spain

I linked all my trip recaps above! I've had the best opportunities to travel. 

Four places I'd rather be right now:

1. Visiting my Grandma
2. In a hot tub #keepingitreal
3. Nordstrom
4. At a Clemson game

Four things I prefer not to eat:

1. Pickles
2. Seafood...of any kind 
3. Coconut
4. Pineapple

My thoughts on when people say, "Let's go get sushi!" Ew, no.

Four of my favorite foods:

1. Pancakes
2. Cheeseburgers
3. French fries 
4. Mexican Caesar salad on Kale (from Chopt)

Four TV shows I watch:

1. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
2. Making a Murderer
3. Shark Tank
4. Fixer Upper

Basically, reality television.

Four things I'm looking forward to this year:

1. Traveling more
2. Marking my 1st full year in Charlotte
3. Is it too early to say, college football season?
4. Growing and evolving as an individual

Four things I'm always saying:

1. "Jesus take the wheel"
2. "Thank you for calling **** this is Lauren..."
3. Love ya!
4. Go Tigers!

I seriously say "Jesus take the wheel" 25 times a day.

Four people I tag to answer these questions:

Thanks again Kylie for the nomination! This was so much fun! I hope y'all have a great week and see you back here soon! xoxo

  1. This is so fun!!!! Can't wait to do it

  2. Oh and seriously how about those panthers!!!!

  3. Jesus take the wheel!! Hahaha dying

    1. If I was a real would have to be my tagline :)

  4. Loved this list, so fun and I feel like I learned some new things about you. Love that we have a few things in common. I love to read, travel, spend time with my fam, (how cute is your gma?!) and I don't like pickles either! Haha thanks for nominating me I'll post this week!

  5. Okay, I absolutely love that you put you'd rather be with your grandma...that's totally how I feel with my grandpa. And that picture of y'all is so cute!

    1. There's just a special bond with a grandparent! I love her so much!

  6. What a fun post! Yay panthers!! The Redskins are my team, but since they're out (sadly) I'm rooting for Carolina in the Super Bowl. Did NC end up getting any actual snow, or was it just slush? I live right outside Washington, so we were right in the path of the blizzard- we got slammed with over 2 feet of snow. Yikes!! Have a great week :)

    1. Allie, I'm glad to hear you're pulling for the Panthers!! I'm so proud of them. We got mostly icy, slush with a little bit of snow mixed in for good measure. I can't believe how slammed DC was! I was just there MLK weekend (you should check out my post) and absolutely LOVE your city!! Have a great week friend and thanks for reading :)

  7. This is such a fun post and I am so excited to be nominated!! I must say that I would also so much rather be with my grandparent OR Nordstrom right now :) Also loving those book recommendations!

    I am so excited to do this post next week, thanks for thinking of me!!
