Memories of a Catholic School Girl

I don’t check my facebook as often as I should but when I logged on today, I found that and old friend {Joel} posted the following photos which had me dying for at least an hour. I couldn’t not share {note* I was about 13 in all of these}.

1990 ~ 8th grade ~ {Rebecca & Me – throwing peace signs}

Dr. Pepper … the only soda {and my husband’s alter ego}
Confession #1: the boy behind me in the stripes was my first kiss
Confession #2: I think the night we kissed he broke up with his girlfriend because he knew I wanted to kiss him. …yeah, I’m that girl

Rebels without a cause …{I’m in the back …I could only tell it was me by the butt, the muscles in my legs and the middle finger, of course}

Rebecca, Lucy & I @ St. Charles …1988 – or 89 …showcasing my love for “big sticks” which gets me teased for obvious reasons.

note* both of my parents attended St. Charles as well

Confession #3: I was totally in love with Carlos {left} like head over heels …lol

Thanks for the memories Joel!!!

This one’s for you!

Yesterday after a strange convo with the boss that led to him telling me that he thought that I am the kind of person who would have no problem shooting someone dead with a gun, I stopped by the mall to pick up a few things and not five steps in, I slipped and fell on my ass. Yep, totally ate shit. Luckily I fell on the side of the large bubble of fat that trails me or else I would be in a world of hurt right about now.

    A) these photos are amazing! I’m not as bold to post the ones that my wonderful friends posted of me in my teen years on the blog but that’s just another reason why I admire you! B) your boss sounds AWESOME! (insert sarcasm here)…is this why you were silently screaming in the lady’s room yesterday? and C) how’s your tush? From our perspective you don’t look AT ALL like you have a “large bubble of fat” trailing you so it must hurt:(

    I love those photos- ahhh memories!

    As for your fall; when Cath and I used to dance and fall after pirouetting our teacher would tell us to fall on “the lady bulge” (explained as the cushion on the upper side and back of your leg/butt).
