I love blog hops. LOVE them. For one they give me something cool to write about...something I wouldn't normally have thought up all on my own (like my wedding or my former self). They also give me a reason to read millions of blogs other than my typical reason of "oh my word, there are 400 unread things in my google reader!"
And come on...I love a good running motif among blogs--knowing that each one I click will be on the same topic, but done in a completely unique way. I think it's the English teacher in me.
Anyway...here we go. To my former self...with pictures (even the awkward ones):
To my Wee Self:
To my Almost an Adolescent Self:
You have no idea what you are in for. You are still pretty cute...look at you with that cute hair and sweater (nice perm. thanks, mom). You are even starting to think boys are sort of cute. But you don't really understand those feelings or know how to act on them other than to smack that cute boy in class HARD in the arm whenever he walks by. This? Is not a good way to attract a guy. But you won't figure that out until high school. sigh...
To my Super Awkward Self:
To my Early High School Self:
To my Starting College Self:
WHY ARE YOU WEARING BULKY CLOTHING? You are at your best body at this point in your life, but it's all covered up in long flannels and baggy jeans and doc martins. Damn you, grunge movement and your lumber jack fashion. Um, self? Stop clinging to guys for your identity. Seriously. You have discovered that you are cute to guys, but instead of settling for one, you just bounce from one to the next because you can. Uncool. Oh, and that skinny guy there in the Georgetown sweatshirt? Too bad he has a girlfriend. You're going to end up with him.
