Another Show-And-Tell Tuesday is going down today. This is a good one! I’m linking up with Andrea to show you my high school self! EEK! The good, the bad, and the ugly…except let’s be real. I definitely chose the best pictures to show you. hahaha! Trust me. You don’t want me to be THAT real. 🙂
Last week I shared some pictures of my hometown. You can check it out here if you missed it.
I grew up in a REALLY small town. Think graduated with twelve people kind of small. This should be fun…oh, and because I’m crazy professional I’m took pictures of pictures. #idontknowhowtoworkascanner
In high school, these other two girls pictured were my closest friends. We were typical sixteen-year-old girls and super boy crazy. I must add that we weren’t crazy wild but innocent teenager crush kind of crazy. 🙂 In the picture above, we were at the BETA convention (kind of like National Honors Society) in Branson, Missouri, and every single one of us had a crush on the guy in the green shirt, who was from another school. I remember this like it was yesterday! haha!
Homecoming-my senior year…we were too small to have football so we celebrated Homecoming during a basketball game. Interesting fact…I was on Homecoming Court three out of my four years of high school and NEVER won! #imstillbitter #forrealstillbitter
Sophomore year school picture…right after this my mom FINALLY agreed to let me get a few highlights. Then she decided she could do it herself and my hair got WAY too blonde. You’ll see in just a second…
I couldn’t find a prom picture from our prom. My senior year, my friend, Carrie and I, went to a local school’s prom with some friends. Why did my parents let me wear a dress like that?? haha!!
My dear dear friend, Carlye. She was two years older than me in school, but we were super close. (I think this is another show-and-tell later but I’m spilling the beans.) Carlye and I cleaned a local Conservation Area office. It was my first job EVER!! So…every other weekend, you could find us driving the thirty minutes to clean offices, bathrooms, and even outdoor bathrooms. Ugh!
Our school had two sports…basketball for boys and volleyball for girls. Starting in fifth grade I played volleyball and absolutely loved it! My senior year we got 1st place in the Woodland Tournament! Notice…no All-Tourney Team medal around my neck. Don’t worry, later I made another All-Tourney Team and All-Conference. #imtrulynotbitteraboutthis haha!
A typical day at school….this was our main hallway.
This is almost my entire graduating class…we’re missing three people. I think this was after the Honor’s Banquet my senior year. Notice…the ends of my hair are extremely blonde. 🙂
Senior graduation with my friend, Amber, and some girls from another high school that we played on a club volleyball team with.
This one is crazy blurry, but I was also a cheerleader for the basketball team all four years of high school.
These two girls and I made lots of fun high school memories. We got the matching dresses on our senior trip.
Senior night for volleyball…and photo bombed by a random guy in the background. ha!
A senior picture…don’t ask me about the hair, but you can ask about that shirt. I remember LOVING that shirt!
Sophomore year of Homecoming…another dress, another updo, and no crown. haha! #whyismyhairsohigh
My junior year I started working at a restaurant that was about thirty-five minutes away, Fisherman’s Net. I worked there for over two years just Friday and Saturday nights as a waitress and pretty much loved every minute of it.
Trust me…if I would have been sharing this in person with you, I’d be red from my head to my toes and probably have hives on my neck!! SO embarrassing!! haha!!
Happy Tuesday, Girls!!
