My name is Lauren, and I live in the bubble. I am wife to Marshall, the biggest BYU fan in the world; and mother to Carly, our big girl, and Wes, our wild man, and Calvin, our new addition. I graduated BYU with a degree in Social Work, and I went forth to serve at LDS Family Services. I like scrapbooking and going out to eat at nice restaurants. I am fascinated by new cleaning products at the grocery store, so I have to shop in wide circles around the perimeter to avoid the temptation to buy. I love chocolate.

Russ' (Ex)Wife?

so some of you are probably confused. i thought i should probably address bryant's creative naming of my blog.

when marshall and i went to get our temple recommends when we were engaged, the bishop put russ' member number on marshall's recommend. this wasn't caught until we moved into our new ward as newlyweds and marshall tried to transfer his records in, and russ' showed up instead. understandably, the bishop was concerned and called us into his office. we determined that the mistake meant that my member number was married to russ' member number. the bishop gave marshall a new recommend with his real number and had to contact salt lake to fix the marriage record. hence, i am russ' ex wife.

the biggest lesson learned in my short marriage to russ would have to be to not get engaged to a guy who lives in the same ward as his twin. life is confusing enough without all that mess.

oh, and we probably shouldn't live in the same ward as russ in the future. i can only imagine him being listed as my children's father on baptism and blessing records...
