A trip down memory lane…
Last night I got caught up taking a trip down memory lane while browsing through some old Facebook photos. I thought it might be kind of fun to share some pictures from my pre-blogging days!
Let’s go back to 2006 … I really thought this was the coolest “messy” haircut EVER. This amount of messy actually took me a good 45 minutes to recreate every morning and required quite a bit of product.
Half of me is cut off because I thought it would be super uncool if you could see the camera in the picture. This was taken back in the days when you couldn’t use your camera phone to easily take selfies.
That box you see in the back is one of many because I was getting ready to move from Orlando down to Miami!
Fast forward a couple of years and here is my best friend and I at her hotel room on her 21st birthday.
We had already had a tiny bit to drink and were showing everyone how to do invisible pogo. The quality of this picture is horrible, but I remember laughing so hard that I couldn’t breathe and that’s what makes it one of my favorite pictures EVER.
And here is the same friend and I a couple years later after deciding to spontaneously fly to DC the weekend before President Obama’s inauguration. We flew Airtran because they allowed college students to fly for like $50 or something.
Because it was a spontaneous trip for two Florida girls we did not pack proper clothing and as such froze our asses off the whole time. This crooked picture was taken in about 2 seconds flat and despite my eyes being closed it could not be retaken because we needed to get inside of a building to warm up ASAP.
I did manage to snap this kissy selfie to send to Adam. I used to wear a lot more makeup than I do now!
Here’s another picture from a freezing cold trip … this one Adam and I took to Boston in February of 2011.
One night we tried to leave our hotel room to go to dinner but it was so cold we turned back around and ordered room service. These grilled cheese sandwiches cost $13 each but they were worth every penny because we got to sit around with the heater on full blast : )
We had gone to Boston because the company I worked for at the time had an office up there and I thought I might like to transfer. Needless to say during that trip Adam and I found out we are not cut out to live in cold weather states!
Instead of becoming a Bostonian, I was destined to become a Florida runner.
Being a runner is such a strong part of my identity these days that it’s hard to believe I wasn’t a runner in any of these other pictures.
… I wasn’t a runner but I was a witch. I mean, how else would I have gotten to hang out with Professor Trelawney and go to Hogwarts?
In case you’re wondering, the answer is yes: I did wait in line to get my wand at Ollivanders.
Do you like to look through old pictures and laugh at your old clothes/hairstyles?
Ever go on any spontaneous trips in college? Where did you go?
– I wish I could still take advantage of those $50 airplane tickets!
