A while back I asked my mom and sister to do me a favor and get some pictures of the old days for me and scan them. My mom and sister are WAY too busy for this kind of work. So while I was at home I took some pictures of pictures to start off my whole “this was me when” saga.
Look at me! That’s me as a baby! Awwww! So the story goes that I was the quietest baby in the nursery. No crying no fussing. As a baby I was very easy going. Legend has it that I didn’t start walking or talking until later because my sister Melanie would pack me around and talk for me. But when I did start talking whoooo…well those of you who know me! I didn’t stop talking.
Okay so this was me at 7 I think. I had a rat tail because my oldest sister had one and I wanted to be just like her. Except she dyed hers and mom wouldn’t let me do that. And yes that is a sailor suit. See that Cabbage Patch kid? Yup I think she’s still around somewhere.
There we are again…This was taken early college years I believe. Look how boyish and skinny I was!!And if I had one of all three of us recently I would post it, but I did get one of the whole family, which is just as good!
Okay back to the days of yore…
This is a friend that I grew up with. Whenever she and I got together we would usually end up doing something goofy, kinda like stuffing as many blankets in our clothes as possible. Little did I know that this was a precursor to what my weight would someday be.
Okay so I’ll stop right there. I’ll give you more boring pictures later…
