Thank you so much for this idea Juli
Welcome to Flashback Friday! The idea is to post about anything in your past. Put up pictures of yourself in embarrassingly dated clothing. Tell the story of something that has happened. The arena is wide open. Chose any medium you wish, but focus on some element of your past that you wish to share.
Since I only found out about Flashback Friday yesterday these are the earliest pics I could scrounge up for the moment. No cute baby pics or anything quite as cute as Julis but hopefully next week....
This picture makes my tummy look fat but I WAS most definitely NOT fat (back then anyway)
The year is 2004 lol. May 19th to be exact. This was the second to the last day of school. There are so many differences between the me then and the me now. The me back in 04 was in love with makeup (dude it took me like 2 hours to get ready) and I didn't go NOWHERE without my ENTIRE face on lol. I was a good 15-20 pounds lighter and thanks to JROTC I was in awesome shape (I worked out everyday)and loved to shop. I spent hours and tons of cash on cute little outfits. I was the perky, ditzy blond. You would seriously think I was the dumbest person you'd ever met. Although back then I didn't believe it, looking back now I used to have a hot bod. This was also around the time I discovered the amazing miracle of tanning beds (spent tons of money on that too) but it looks like I was taking a tanning break here.
The up to date me is SO much different. I'm no longer the ditzy blond (still have my ditzy moments) I dyed my hair brown. I traded the "hot bod" lmao for the mom bod complete with the "belly pooch" (does that thing ever go away i gave birth over a year ago) loads of stretch marks and well plenty of other things I'm not too pleased with. I still love spending money on cute little outfits but instead of a size 3 for me (wish i was still that size) I'm buying size 18months for Lily :) As you can see many things have changed for me in 5 years but I wouldn't trade ANY of it. Motherhood is by far better than any of the meaningless things I have given up :)
This is another picture of me from my last day of school EVER May 20th 2004. Oh how I miss senior year.
