Serious Nerd Alert!!

You guys? Friday night I laughed so hard my cheeks hurt. And after I ate as much pizza as I did, it’s a good thing I laughed as hard as I did…you know, extra calorie burning and all.

Since my sis from Chicago was in town for the weekend, we had a family dinner at our dad’s house with all of his brothers and sisters. I’ve blogged about it before, but when we all get together we laugh a lot.

This night was no exception, but instead of laughing about my family’s crazy neighbors when they were growing up, we had a slide show.

Straight outta the early 90’s ya’all.

And I learned something this night…

When Derek W broke up with me in the 8th grade for being to weird? He kinda had a point. Oye. These photos are from years before that, but as you’ve seen here and here, I really haven’t changed at all.

Please excuse the poor quality iphone photo from a slide projector screen, but you get what you get and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed…

Now, let me be your tour guide through this walk down memory lane…

Here’s a shot from the summer of 1989. My whole family went back to Wisconsin for a big family reunion. This one isn’t weird, it just makes me happy. Notice the shoe box in my sister’s hand? Yea, we brought home a wild turtle we found in the middle of the road while we were out there. Airplane regulations have only changed a little since, ammiright? heh.
Now we’re in the early 90’s. Here I am wearing a super-sweet blue visor and pretending I know how to play the piano. Fun fact: That piano is still in that same exact spot!

I think I’m showing off the pilgrim style grocery bag vest I made. Also sporting my dad’s smokey the bear hat, killer shades, a glow bracelet and no front teeth. EPIC.

We’re now in the “francis era” as I like to call it…or should I say as my sister’s like to call me. Somewhere around 2nd grade my mom decided to cut my hair. You guys remember Francis from Swiss Family Robinson? Yes, that. Also? Check out those hot pants. Pretty sure my mom made those.

Ok excuse my language but Ho-Ly SHIT! Wow. At least I can honestly say this was Halloween so there was some sort of justification for this hot mess.

Unfortunately, there’s no justification for this hot mess. What you can’t see, is that I have a pilgrim style hat and shirt cover thingie that I’m modeling. The next slide was a shot from Thanksgiving. And I kind of wish I still had those socks.

Fast forward to my senior prom…we had some pretty amazing photos on this day. And by amazing, I mean I can’t stop shaking my head and laughing. We thought we were

In conclusion: at least my style has gotten better. and at least I married the husband before he saw any of these! HAHA!

You’re welcome.

Fashion Police Friday – May 6, 2011

Oh this made my heart smile and my belly laugh.

It’s been a while. But I’m happy to say Rylee had a fantastic outfit choice last weekend and I couldn’t help but get all excited.

This outfit was all Ry…head to toe.

First, please note the clippie placement on the top of her head.
Blue Sweater…she’s kind of obsessed with it.
Grey shirt w/ white, yellow and pink flowers.
Grey sweat pants with pink and black hearts on them.
Purple & orange polka-dot socks.
And she wore her pink/yellow/orange plaid fake cons.

And yes, for all those wondering, we went out in public like this!

Not from Yesterday, but Even Better…

This post could alternately be titles: Self Humiliation.

But, one of our family rules is “Laugh Often – especially at yourself”.

Also? You’re welcome.

Rylee has been super into making “pretty hair” where the word pretty actually means “not at all pretty”. She was doing this to me last night and I happened to post something on facebook, so of course my super supportive, ever loving family asked for photos.

Well, I didn’t take any photos, but that’s because I already had some. Better ones. Last weekend Julia and Spencer came over for dinner and after I drank nearly a whole bottle of wine, I let Auntie Julia and Rylee make my hair “pretty”.

Pretty right? I’m almost positive that every single clippie was out of the jar and in my hair. It was super fun to take out.

Oh the things we do for our kids…

If you do that favor for me, I’ll be sure to hide all the clippies next time you come over to my house so Ry can’t make you “SOOoo pretty”. :) Unless you want her to, of course. 
Happy Sunday Friends!

Fashion Police Friday – January 28, 2011

Ahhh, fashion police. There really hasn’t been much to show lately. Pretty much my fault because now that Rylee has grown out of all her hand-me-downs, I have bought most of her clothes and there’s not a whole lot of crazy combos she can come up with. But, she did find this one last Friday. And to her credit, I totally get where she was coming from.

Shirt: Red, zebra striped squirrel
Pants: Brown with little brown squirrels and other woodland things.

She was totally matching the squirrels. The way this kid’s mind work just crack me up. And simultaneously amazes me.

Also? Can you see that she was posing with her babies? What a nut.

Also, also? My kid is a total ham-ball and actually requested that I take a photo of her with the elephant.
