Young and Fabulous

I’ve been going through old family photo albums lately.  Now I know why people take so many pictures and put them in albums: it’s absolutely hilarious to look back in time.

While looking through these old albums, I discovered that when I was young I was pretty fabulous.

I wore hot pink jelly flats, floral tops and patterned band aids.   I must have been subscribing to the “more is more” philosophy of dress.

This shot was taken at the front row of fashion week…in Granny and Papa’s den.

I wore sunglasses in the house and Mary Jane’s on a regular basis.  In hindsight, I might have opted for some sheer black stockings instead of the white tights, but we all fall victim to toddler fashion trends at some point in our lives.

Hopefully, it’s while we’re toddlers.

I wore sunglasses at night.  My theory on this obviously practical choice is that posing in my sunglasses after my bath prolonged having to go to bed.  My mom was eating it up.  It was genius.

I rocked white faux fur.  The paparazzi (my dad) caught me leaving the house in it Easter morning of what looks to be 1991.

This was my parents’ first home, purchased in the era of the high-teen mortgage rates.  And, bless their hearts, they still managed to keep me stylin’.

I wish I were as fabulous now as I was then.   I’m not sure that I could pull off any of these things now.

More to come on the first decade on my life.  Brace yourselves.

Y’all come back,

Pearly Whites

I am writing this with Crest White Strips on my teeth. I find them very uncomfortable so I decided to distract myself by blogging.

I’m not sure why these white strips are so problematic for me, but I have an awful time getting them to stick to my teeth.  I have to avoid talking or closing my mouth when I have them on or else they seem to lose their grip on my chompers.

To help with issue, I have started using a paper towel to remove as much moisture as possible from my teeth before I put on the white strips.  If you’ve never tried this before, I would recommend it just to see what it’s like.  It is a very bizarre feeling.

I’ve taken a poll among family and friends and it seems as though I am the only one who has such difficulty with this teeth whitening process.

I guess my teeth are shaped funny.

I know that makes me sound quite attractive, so I would just like to clarify that I had braces and my teeth are straight.  I don’t look like a jack-o-lantern.

I really detest these white strips.

On the bright side, they are preventing me from eating, which I’ve already done enough of today.

I really want some chocolate.

Ding.

My 30 minutes is up.  I can’t wait to pull these things off.

My teeth had better be so sparkly by next week that you need sunglasses to look at me.
