Sunday Social: The Awkward Years

Good Sunday morning night to you all! I started this post in the morning, and I'm just now finishing it up. Busy day! I'm linking up with Neely and Ashley for Sunday Social, and today is all about middle school and high school. Awkward does not even begin to describe my years in middle school, as you will see in some of the pictures that go along with this post. Enjoy!

1. Biggest Middle School Fashion Mistake: Immediately after seeing this as one of the questions, I knew exactly what picture I wanted to include with it.
This picture was taken on my first day of 7th grade. That outfit is wrong on so many levels, I don't even know where to begin. Maybe the Winnie the Pooh t-shirt with rolled up sleeves? The shorts down to my knees or the socks up to my knees? Perhaps the platform shoes that, at the time, made me feel like a Spice Girl? Let's not leave out the glasses or the bangs with that outrageous cowlick! I'm basically Sue Heck without the braces.

2. Who were your best friends in high school? Mallory and Ashlee

3. What was a typical weekend like for you in high school? A typical weekend included football games on Friday, all-day band contests on Saturdays, and homework and relaxing on Sundays.
 This picture is from my freshman year of high school, aka the only year I played an instrument with the band. I joined the color guard my sophomore year. That band uniform is possibly the #1 reason why.

 4. Did you have any boyfriends? You did see my picture from 7th grade, right?, no boyfriends.

5. Did you have any secret codes with your friends? Whenever it was our time of the month and we needed to borrow a pad or tampon from each other, we would call the pads 'paper' and the tampons 'pens,' so nobody else would know what we were talking about (e.g. 'a guy is sitting with us, and we don't want him to know about it' kinda situation).

6. If you could relive one day/moment/experience from middle school or high school, what would it be? I would want to relive my junior year all over again. For me, it was the best year of high school! I loved our marching show, my friends, my classes, and we went to California that year for our band trip. So much fun!

Thanks for reading today! I have a few blog posts I want to put up, so hopefully, I'll get to some of those this week. Tomorrow is weigh-in day!
