Old Friends

Flashback Fridays are back! (Hopefully I can be consistent again.)

I've been communicating with my friend, Becky recently. Though she's already married, she's planning a belated wedding reception and I can never resist wedding plans. I love that the internet connects us with long lost friends. Becky and I were mostly friends freshman year. We played on the basketball team together. And I'm certain we did 9th grade English projects together. And didn't you and Traci make some kind of English Muffin video at my house by drawing faces on your upside down chins?

I'm pretty sure these pictures were taken after Elsa's Quinceanera. Which explains why we were dressed up. When I think of memories of Becky, I don't really picture her in a dress. We came back to my house after. And took these HIDEOUS pictures of us Scotch taping our noses up. I've thought that was a good idea on more than one occasion. One of them being just a couple months ago. Nothing could make me look worse, yet I still haven't out grown it.


Oh man these pictures are AWFUL. Sorry Becky. But I had to do it. Though you don't look bad...it's mostly just me. I would have totally forgot about this night if I didn't have pictures. Good times. Wasn't life so much more simple then? Good luck on the rest of your plans. My move has sort of thwarted our communication. Let me know how it's going and if you need any more ideas.

I was wondering if flashback Fridays would make a comeback!

So much fun! Becky was in our group for the "Tea Time with Traci and Katie"... I think that during one part she and I were Lee and Grant and ended up in a fight. It took us forever to make that stupid video because we would all end up laughing every time. Good memories.

Jeanine... I knew we made that video together, but I forgot that you guys ended up in a fight. That's hilarious. Thanks for jogging my memory.

I have the BIGGEST grin on my face right now!!! I should be working, but I am not.. Can't seem to pull it together today.. ANYWAYS, thanks Katie, I TOTALLY forgot about doing that! I barely remember the Quincenera, and didn't (till now) remember anything after the event... I'm glad Flashback Fridays are back. I love them. Thank you for this flashback.. it was a good one.. I think i might have to go look for that video.. I'm pretty sure my mom still has it. And I'll keep you posted on the wedding plans.. They are at a stand still right now..

So funny- that tape on the nose is a classic to kids- we all gotta do it sometime. Maybe I will bring some scotch tape to church tomorrow since you can't resist- I would love to see you model!! :)
