Birthday Girl

It is my 28th birthday!  Whoo-hoo!  I thought I would use this very exciting day as an excuse to post random pictures from my various birthdays over the years and write self-deprecating commentary about my outfits.  Lucky for you, I was the fourth child in an age before digital cameras, so there aren't 28 pictures!  

According to the writing on the back, I am actually 3 days old in this picture, but it will have to do!  You can tell I was already a fashion trailblazer - wearing all white after Labor Day.

I don't have a picture from when I turned 2, but I found notes in my baby book about the gifts I received.  Someone gave me pantyhose.  For my 2nd birthday. I don't even know why that would happen.  

In third grade, I got to have a party with my friends from school.  I made sure to dress my very best in pink floral short-alls.  The worst part is that they were a fairly recent hand-me-down from my sister who was 16 at the time.  You only get a glimpse of their awesomeness in this photo,  If you aren't too distracted by my bright blue scrunchy.  I'm also 90% sure that present was a book version of Disney's Aladdin.

Action shot from my 14th birthday.  Let's ignore my giant bangs and focus on the fact that I had this shirt in 2 colors.  Mock neck shirts must have been really awesome.



Sweet 16 coming up!  This year was really fancy.  I got a cookie cake AND a chocolate cake shaped like a boot.  You might remember this shirt from when I was in middle school.  I was still wearing it 4 years later.  I believe this was the birthday when my parents took me to see "Remember the Titans."  



For my 18th birthday, I had a big party with one of my best friends.  We even had balloons!  I mean, it was pretty crazy.  I remember telling my friend that my dad was running to pick up the cake, and she thought I said "keg", and was very confused for a second.  To be clear, it was not a keg party.  The only 6-packs were of Orange Crush.



This is my birthday when John and I were dating.  We look so young!  And isn't Leanne Rimes kind of creepy in the background??  


And finally, a picture from my 25th, when my parents came to visit!  Special thanks to them for putting up with me all these years.

  5. A walk down memory lane for me. You are so very special! Probably the "pantyhose" were tights. But ... Who knows??
