Sunday School - Throwback Edition

Biggest middle school fashion mistake... 

Oh I wish I had a picture of this to share with you because you'd all laugh your butts off... I swear to you, my uniform was baggy khaki pants, an Old Navy 1/4 Zip Logo Fleece, and Adidas sneakers. To top it off, I added a pony tail with bangs that always looked horrible because I never took the time to blow dry them. I really & truly looked like a hot mess. I don't blame all of the boys who didn't want to date me, I totally understand now. 


Who were your best friends in high school? Pics?




I went to a very small high school. As in, I graduated with 41 people in my class. I knew everyone. We'd been in classes together since kindergarten. My best friends were basically the same in third grade as they were when I was a senior. While we aren't really that close anymore, they're the people that I can run into at homecoming & have an hour long conversation. We share so much history together. They'll always hold a special place in my heart... 


Side note - This was not my prom dress. My dress actually got stepped on & ripped, but luckily I had worn this one to dinner because the other one was so huge. Total crisis... 

What was a typical weekend like for you in high school?


Well, my parents owned the only restaurant in town, so I spent a lot of time working there on the weekends. Friday night was the fish fry, so I was washing dishes or waiting tables. Saturday night was "family night" - meaning that nobody else would ever want that shift so my mom, dad, and I would hold down the fort. And Sunday morning was brunch, so I was on call for that too. I honestly can't complain though, all of those hours paid for the brand new car that I got when I turned 16 & all of my best friends were employed by my parents so we were usually working together. 


By the time I was a senior, I rotated Saturday night shifts so that I could go hang out with this cutie too... 



Yes. This is my husband... as a high school junior on our first vacation together. 
Did you have any boyfriends/girlfriends? Tell us about that...

Well, I'm not very exciting. I've been dating that handsome fella up above since I was a senior in high school. I "dated" before that, but nothing serious. Eric was my date to senior prom, attended both my high school & college graduations, and has been on every vacation I've been on for the past 10 years. He's kind of the real deal & I'm glad that we've stuck together all of these years... 



If you could relive one day/moment/experience from middle school or high school, what would it be?

This is probably a little more sentimental than they were expecting when they wrote this question, but for Spring Break of eighth grade I went on vacation with my Grandma Ellen & Grandpa Dave to Florida. It was just me & them. I had their complete undivided attention & it was amazing. I really wish I could go back & relive that experience... have a few more days with my grandma soaking up the sun. It's truly one of my absolute fondest vacations. She was diagnosed with breast cancer a year after that trip & it was one of the last we'd ever take together...

  4. Did you wear Adidas Allstars? Those were so popular when I was in school. I had two pairs in middle school before going "skater" and wearing skate shoes. I thought I was so cool!
