four photographs...

I was tagged by a lovely blogger pal o' mine to do this little picture meme. Thanks for thinking of me Sara-Jane.

As always these meme's have some rules. Here they are...

1. Choose a photo that makes you cringe like hell.
Really? Really?! What was I thinking? This is Prom 2002...I was 16...and I obviously had zero fashion sense. Let me count the ways that this photo makes me cringe...
1. The dress! Oh the dress...the $575 dollar dress. Yes you did read that right. I honestly thought my life would end if I did not have this dress on my body. My parents were amazing enough to foot the bill (although in hindsight Mother, you should have told me how ugly this dress was.) Ick. I only wanted it because my dates favorite color was baby blue...yep gag!

2. The date! Jason was his name. Professional Douche bag was his game. Seriously. I dated him for almost a year...not only is he unattractive he was the.biggest. jerk.ever.

2. Choose two pictures that you could stare at all day long.
This picture is one of my favorites. My niece is obviously the cutest child ever to exist. She also steals my accessories hence, her fabulous peace sign scarf she is rocking in this photo. Another reason I love this picture is because it was taken at Sprinkles Cupcakes...also known as 'Mecca'. Sprinkles+My Bug+Scarves+Peace Signs=A photo I could stare at all day.

If you need any explanation as to why I could stare at this hot piece all day long. You obviously have not been paying attention. I heart Robert Pattinson. He makes me swoon. The end.

3.Choose one picture that shows your dreams and aspirations, or that holds a place on your 'bucket list'.This one may need a little explaining. I am a girl with dreams. Big, big dreams. Education is the key to all of these dreams. I am almost done with my Bachelor's Degree. I will be starting on my Master's in the Fall. After that I will hopefully becoming a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist. I want my own practice. I also hope to someday have a pH.d. As shallow as it may be...I do not think I will be satisfied until I have Dr. in front of my last name instead of Ms.

4. Link four bloggers-and tell why they inspire you.

Man...why only four?! we go...

-Alice from 'Alice's Shenanigans'.
Why? Because I seriously think we are twins...and new bffs...she is hilarious and I heart her major.

Why? She is my official Political Soul Sister. Truth. I adore this girl.

Why? Um. Hello. Her blog title has the word 'inspiration' in it. She is also a blog friend who cracks me up and helps me catch mice. She is married to The Mouse Whisperer and I love her for that!

-Kimberly from 'William & Kimberly'.
Why? Because she is just plain awesome. Also, because she is on vacation and I miss reading her blog!
Alright ladies do me proud! I cannot wait to see your photographs! Thanks again Sara-Jane for tagging me! It was a lot of fun (it was also traumatizing to relive my Prom thanks for that too!).

I like all your pictures. Having a goal like yours is another inspiration! I will have to work on this when I get back.
Kudos to you love!

SJ said...

No praaab, girl! I knew you would produce a good one! I love all your photos, the prom one makes me giggle because my cousin had a REALLY similar dress. I guess that the early 2000's weren't all that amazing for evening wear! However, you did look beautiful! And you still are.

KatOfDiamonds said...

GREAT #2! I love both of them... maybe one more than the other.... sorry, i'm just single. lol

Mar said...

I really like that dress and you were totally pulling it off!

Lauren Elizabeth said...

haha, love it!

you WILL get that PhD one day! it's not a shallow thing to want have big dreams! that's amazing.

Lauren said...

This cracks me up! Mostly because I had a similar conversation with my mom about prom dresses. I just couldn't go on if they didn't buy the one I wanted.

Your bug is precious and she is totally rocking the peace sign scarf.

I've always heard you're supposed to write down your dreams to make them happen and I know you totally will!

KatOfDiamonds said...

Bahaha, so this is in response to your comment on my blog....

fyi, my little bro is 20! (His birthday fell on Turkey Day this year)

But it is ok to think he is cute... When I was 20 I dated his arch nemesis who was 16 and 3 days younger than my bro LOL

But in a non creepy way I agree with people say my brother is good looking, since we share DNA it means I am good looking too!

KatOfDiamonds said...

BAHAHAHA! Feel free to drool over him! I won't judge...

And he IS illegal!


Krysten Hartenstein said...

Lady, you look good in that dress! And yes, your niece is pretty much ADORABLE. As is Rob Pattinson (but for different reasons, of course).

Kellie said...

Hehe I still need to do this!! I've made plenty of bad dance-dress decisions. But I don't think you look bad!

By the way, I gave you an award on my blog :)

Love ya lady

Alice said...

Oh the wonderful things I missed while stuck in crap butt Tucson.

$575!?!? what.the.freak. but I do remember what it was like to need THE dress. Oh the memories.

Your niece is so cute...she can marry my son. yay! :D

Okay I'll do my list...tomorrow. :) Tucson has me 3 days behind.

I keep hearing of Sprinkles and I am jealous that I have never been there nor eaten one of their apparently amazing cupcakes. I feel there is a gaping hole in my life. :(

Your pictures are adorable. And I think we all have at least one awkward dance picture...haha.
