I have always been passionate about designing and making meaningful gifts and keepsakes and was very fortunate to able to start my own business. Lauren Nicole Gifts (name after my niece) was started in 2004 and was a great way for me to have my own business, but still move around as an Army wife. My husband recently retired from the Army and we are now permanently located in Ouray, Colorado

Why men shouldn't go grocery shopping by themselves!
I finally went grocery shopping yesterday! I forgot that the grocery store here opens early, but only for self-check out and only if you have 20 or less items. I had a very full cart so I had 30 minutes to waste until the regular registers opened. I met an old man that did the same thing I did. He said that his wife usually does not allow him to go grocery shopping by himself. He then showed me the grocery list that his wife gave him. There were only four things on the list (milk, eggs, bread, and chicken), but his cart was full!! He had every snack and ice cream flavor that the grocery store carried. I just started laughing and helped him put it all in thermal shopping totes so that his ice cream wouldn't melt while we waited to check out. He said that his wife never lets him buy that stuff. He also said that he was 85 years old and that ice cream and cupcakes haven't killed him yet!!
