That’s me and my high school boyfriend (who was a year behind me in school, by the way) headed out for MY Senior Prom.
Get a load of this.
Standing on my parents’ green shag carpet.
Wearing my gold “dyed-to-match” shoes and my hair had just come out of HOT rollers for like an HOUR.
My hair looked DAMN good though, Y’all!
Well, despite the bangs…
Anyway, I wanted to post this picture for a few reasons.
1) To give you all a good laugh. I mean COME. ON. Just feast your eyes on that awesome dress!!!! (found at a re-sale shop in Austin for less than HALF of what other girls were paying for their dresses. Ahem.)
2) So you could see my awesome hair.
3) To tell you all that I thought I was fat in this picture. Can you believe that crap?
Baby K was playing on a bookshelf yesterday and out fell my old photo album, and this picture.
And I looked at it thought, “OMG, look at me – I look great and I thought I was fat back then!!”
Um, who else can see my collar bone? (show of internet hands please…)
That’s what I thought.
Anyway, I obviously was not fat. Just goes to show how askew our own image of ourselves can be.
And in relation to my post yesterday about weight/body/etc., let’s be good to ourselves too. And let’s teach our girls that they are beautiful no matter what (my parent’s always did but sometimes I didn’t see it…)
Anyway, Happy Friday all! We’re gearing up for a trip to TX next week for the holiday and I am SO EXCITED!
Now scroll on back up and have yourself another laugh. It’s on me. 🙂
