Today is my birthday! I cannot believe another year has come and gone in my lifetime. I am 24 years old. I remember when 16 seemed old (and 18 and 21!). Just for fun I found some photos of birthdays past. Enjoy all the chubby cheeks (oh, wait-I still have those!).
Here is my third birthday :) Man, I STILL love puzzles!
This is my fourth birthday. We always loved to get Barbies. This particular one came wiht sponges that grew when you got them wet. Best thing ever! I also got a whiteboard, which may have first sparked my interest in teaching. I loved that whiteboard (and later chalkboard) that I got. Many sessions of pretend school were held in our household!
Looks like my sixth birthday! I was heavily into matching sweatsuits by this time in my life. I can assure you I'm wearing matching pink pants to go along with this. Also, chocolate cake-YES.
My next obsession was fuzzy posters. I have a ton of those rolled up in my closet at home. They were the best thing ever! For the longest time I wore claw clips in my hair too. Tell me you all did too, right?
Here is my sixteenth birthday party. I got my braces off the day before my sweet sixteen. It was the best feeling to go to school the next day and show off my gleaming pearly whites on my sweet sixteen! I also got to have a Mary Kay party with my best friends. One of my most favorite memories :)
Aaaand here was my 17th birthday. You can tell old age was starting to take its toll on me. Haha .
I just love looking through old photos. I suppose that's why blogging is so important to me-I enjoy reminiscing and seeing changes that take place. Hope you enjoyed my trip down memory lane!
Also, don't forget to join me over on Flock Together today! I'm all layered up in one of Elana's dresses for the occasion :)
See you there!
