you guys are funny...

You know, after I made that last post, I almost went back and edited to add something about "if you're looking for some deep and meaningful reading, perhaps my blog is not the place for you :p"

Then you all went and left me a ton of comments (which I LOVE by the way)

So, I guess my audience is *not* looking for deep and meaningful reading ;) I embrace you :D

I've had a few messages about not updating in a week but honestly, I was just REALLY hoping to be able to regale you all with my tales of good luck this past week.

Obviously, I'm not going to be able to do that. I have heard some good bird poop stories though and really, who can beat that?

So, instead...a little public service announcement. Braces are a GOOD thing for your children parents! And please, for the love of God, try your damndest to talk your little girl out of this haircut. (OK, so I guess I *am* lucky in the sense that my awkward phase only last 10 years or so...I've finally grown out of it - I think) Thanks to my stepdad Scott for emailing this picture...no thanks a lot, I mean it {dripping sarcasm} And, I would have included the picture of my brother with his GIANT crayon but I'll leave it to Jenni to do it for me :)

    I have to agree with Melanie. Pure HOTNESS!!! Look at you. That sweater is just perfection. And hey, at least you still look like a GIRL with that haircut. I, on the otherhand was mistaken for a boy for a VERy long time. I think until I had boobs :p

  8. LOL! This was sooo worth the wait :) I have to say you pulled off that look a lot better than I did :P

    Hey, that's my haircut!! Right now. Kind of. ;) Love the green shirt and the walkman. You were so cool back then... wow. But now I'm dying to see the picture of your bro with the crayon.

  10. You know, I think BHG needs an article based on that picture. Especially on leaving "personal items" in a picture. AND REALLY BIG PRINTS on your clothes. Just a lot of good tips there. :)

  11. i HATED my pics before braces!! soooo not cool

    So fun! I am thinking you ought to start a blog challenge thing after the holidays.....posting a school picture on your blog ;) I am not sure I have one.....LOL J/K!
    Hope you are well. Been a rough one around here! Can't wait to slow down!

  13. I am wondering what was playing on your walkman? If Destiny's Child was popular back then I bet it would be..."I'm feeling sexy, I want to hear you say my name..." HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I just love you.

    Ok so you have now thanked me for the wonderful pic. I'll keep looking for more k? And just in case your friends were wondering your Mom says it had to be Madonna on the walkman.

  15. OMG!!! I had this haircut....in the picture of me with the crayon (see my comment on Jens post). Too freakin' funny! I don't think I could bring myself to share my pic though. Props to you:)

  17. Anonymous9:09 AM

  18. Hey! Whata coincidence - I just grew out of my awkward stage, too. ; )

  19. Yep..it's up there. I had to rise to the challenge.

    Crayola rocks :)

  20. :) I have never seen anyone pose so thoughtfully with a walkman before. :)


  21. oh god.
    im dying.
    can't breathe.
    i wanted to say something so clever about the walkman...
    but Ashley C. beat me to it...
    oh man.
    did you just take off the headphones for the picture?
    i love it.
    im so posting my banana-clip hair wearing, stonewashed guess jeans, and chapped lips picture...
    oh man.
    WILL not scrap.
    ooooh maybe I WILL scrap...

    Ah, so THIS is what I missed?! Nice walkman. No, really! (Oh, and the giant crayon is killing me!)
