Fun Facts About Lauren!
What would you do if you won the lottery?
I would buy a jet and travel everywhere (literally), bringing all my friends and family with me.
Someone gives you a million dollars to launch your best entrepreneurial idea. What is it?
Well if I told you, then someone else with a million dollars would see it and launch it instead! I’ll give you a hint though, it has to do with DIY projects.
If someone came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for them?
I’d make caesar salad from scratch (my favorite and a crowd pleaser, too). Hopefully they are coming over in the summer, and we’re grilling chicken, pineapple, and onion kabobs on the back patio (also a favorite!).
You are hosting a dinner party and must invite 3 famous people. Who would you choose and why?
I would invite James Franco, Zooey Deschanel and Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver). They all seem very smart, genuine and fun loving, so a dinner with them would probably a night to remember.
What did you want to be when you were 10 years old?
I wanted to be the president. I was convinced that I could be the first woman president. Today I’m not so sure I’d even want the job.
