I saw this blogger meme on my friend Kristen's blog earlier this week, and thought it would be fun to play along!
This is a real live picture of me ten years ago. At age 12. I absolutely will not be offended if you think I look younger now than I did at 12. In fact, I would appreciate you saying that, to be honest.
10 years ago I was
. . . in the seventh grade.
. . . loving white lipstick (for some reason that hasn't made sense since).
. . . an orchestra nerd.
. . . crushing so hard on this really tall guy who later told me he would never want to date me because I was "too fat". (That was fun.)
. . . watching Nick at Nite pretty much every night. Cheers was somehow my favorite. I was only like, two decades late to the party.
. . . dared to eat a Crayola marker, and for some reason I did.
. . . really shy around my school mates, but super outgoing around my close friends.
. . . convinced that I would someday marry Tweety from Even Stevens.
. . . once mistaken for a mother at school, and twice asked how many children I had.
5 years ago I was
. . . a senior in High School and very involved in Student Government, Orchestra, and various clubs.
. . . convinced that I was hilarious.
. . . given the superlative of "best buds" with Heather Leavitt (brunette pictured above).
. . . wondering if I would go to Southern Utah University or Utah State University.
. . . dating a little bit, but wondering if I would ever have a real "boyfriend".
. . . late to everything.
. . . given a fake baby to take care of for a week, and ended getting my first (and only) "D" on an assignment. (Whoops!)
. . . driving the same car my great-grandma drove. People who lived on the street of the High School literally made bets on when my car would die. They all lost. It's a demolition derby car now.
. . . so excited to start college!
Two years ago I was
. . . happier than I'd ever been in my life!
. . . just married to my very best friend. And SO happy about it!
. . . in the middle of my junior year of college, and really busy with school work.
. . . starting to write on this blog more, and loved getting to know so many new people!
. . . living in an apartment probably smaller than your bedroom.
. . . hanging out with my mom every single day. Even if it was just to go to the store, or get a Diet Coke.
. . . really unsure of what our future plans were.
. . . learning how to cook and feeding my husband a lot of crap.
Today I am
. . . learning a lot about who I am, and who I want to be.
. . . planning and preparing for the year to come.
. . . grateful to be finished with school, and excited for James to start his Master's program this fall.
. . . a l m o s t 23!
. . . hanging out with my grandma almost everyday. (Love that part of my life!)
. . . realizing that I've suddenly become less fashionable than I once considered myself. But strangely okay with it?
. . . excited for my mom (and hopefully sister) to come visit me next month!
. . . enjoying watching 80's movies.
. . . dreaming of the future.
Two years from now I will be
. . . uhhhhhhh. I danno?
. . . a homeowner.
. . . a mother to some cutie babes.
. . . a wife to an almost CPA.
. . . really crafty and good at stuff.
. . . healthy and confident.
. . . ready for whatever is next!
Okay, blogging babes. Are you gonna do this, or what? I wanna read them, if so! It was kind of fun to look back and look ahead!
