Go to: and type in your first and last name. It's actually really interesting.

The top first names, according to this website are:

1. James
2. John
3. Robert
4. Michael
5. Mary
6. William
7. David
8. Richard
9. Charles
10. Joseph

"Lindsay" is the 536th most popular name in the U.S. And Widenhouse doesn't even make it onto the list, but it is estimated that fewer than 336 people have this last name. I think I know all of them.

"There are 1 or fewer people in the U.S. named Lindsay Widenhouse." I'm pretty sure there's at least 1.

What I Like About Drew...

So, as many of you are aware, I have started dating a guy named Drew. We're taking it slow, so don't freak out. And for those of you who want to be protective, he's so sweet and nice and treats me very well.

What I like about Drew:
-the way he wants to hold my hand in the car
-that he sends me a text message first thing when he wakes up
-that he is as obsessed with mushrooms as I am
-that he loves to read and learn and is genuinely curious
-that he is protective of me
-that he brought me medicine at work when I wasn't feeling well
-that he is okay spending his lunch hour having lunch with me
-that he's laid back enough to want to watch American Idol and have a picnic dinner on the living room floor, but classy enough to want to get dressed up and go out to dinner together
-that the first thing he would do if he won the lottery is pay off his mom's debt

After One Week...

I've been at my job for a little over a week. I'm enjoying it for the most part; I've only had a couple rough moments thus far.

I had a high bridal conversion, a really good first week of sales, and a decent overall PMP report.

The longer I'm there, the more I am beginning to "own" my job. I've started noticing when things are out of place; I'm getting better at finding a particular gown in rows of hundreds; I walk around the store and straighten the racks just because; I obsess about my paperwork and bridal registrations.

This is good.
