Sunday Social-- Flashback!

Sunday Social

1. What were you like in Middle School/HS?
I was a lot like I am now and at the same time very different.  I was a lot more social than I am now and didn't realize the beauty of alone time.  And I've mellowed with age-- I was easily agitated when I was young.  (Can I blame that on having a little brother who played the drums under my bedroom??  Hahaha)  But in general, I was a really happy kid who had a lot of friends and did well in school.  Sure, there was your typical teenage angst, but I tried to keep my eye on the big picture and not get bogged down with it.

2. What were your favorite past times?
I read A LOT when I was young.  I also played (and still do) the flute, piccolo, and piano.  I also spent a lot of time with my friends and at church.

3. What songs were you obsessed with?
I don't remember any songs in particular, but when I was really young (elementary school, I guess), I loved me some New Kids on the Block.  I had the dolls, bed sheets, towels, etc.  OBSESSED.

4. What fashion statement do you look back on and cringe?
Overalls.  I LOVED mine and wore them as often as possible (often with the super cool plaid shirt tied around my waist).  I should've listened to my mother who said they were hideous...

5. Who was your celeb crush?
Jonathan Brandis

Eddie Cibrian (from his Young and the Restless days)

Tiger Woods-- I was a little obsessed with him

Derek Jeter

6. What were your favorite tv shows/movies?
I remember loving The West Wing, Friends, Mad About You, ER, and 7th Heaven  in high school.  In middle school, there was Saved by the Bell and the TGIF lineup-- Boy Meets World, Family Matters, Step by Step, etc.


  1. oh my goodness Jonathan Brandis!!! SeaQuest!!!! I loved him!
    And don't worry-I totally wore overalls too!

  2. OOOH I forgot about overalls. I wore them a lot too, I thought they were awesome!

  3. I used to play the flute too! :) And who does not love Derek Jeter?

    OMG, I totally forgot about 7th Heaven...I was obsessed!

  4. Wasn't Jonathon Brandis in the "Neverending Story" movies?
    You were so cute in middle school!!!

  5. Jonathan Brandis - yes!! =D I loved all those shows too... but I guess most 90s kids did! Thankfully, I only rarely sported overalls. I did do the plaid shirt around the waist thing a lot...along with my washed-out jeans. Sigh.

  6. Aww I love your cute pictures!! Oh, the overalls...I had some too, and I thought I was cool. I was sadly mistaken :)

  7. Oh man...overalls. We all loved them. A friend bought some about a year ago hoping they were coming back in style. I don't think so... ha!

  8. OMG! I loved me some Jonathan Brandis!! (may he rest in peace)
