What my yearbook photo would have looked like in 1950...

I found this really funny yearbook picture maker link over on Julie's blog. You load your picture and it shows what you would have looked like in the 50s, 60s, all the way to present time. Here are a few of my favorites. :) Then go make your own at

Here is me in the 1950s--ooh stylin'!
1960--I like these glasses MUCH better! ;)1962--I think this hairstyle should make another round.
1970--Gotta love the necklace.
1984--yup that is definitely 80s hair!
And 2000--I am pretty sure I have a yearbook photo that looks similar to this.

Moving pictures

When I first decided I was moving I was excited. I was eager to go through my stuff and organize. Of course the first few days of packing was fun. I had a pile for the thrift center, a pile of things to throw away, and boxes to take with me. The first boxes were all neatly packed and labeled--so fun! But if you have moved you know that things don't always fit neatly into boxes. So after the neatly packed boxes came many boxes not so neatly packed and I will admit a few too many that were labeled "junk," and on moving day a few things ended up getting thrown into garbage bags and shoved in my car.

And now comes the task of unpacking. Just like packing the first few days are fun. I have a feeling I will have a few unpacked boxes for a while.

Here are a few pictures from moving day.

A BIG HUGE thanks to my friends B, L, and A who made what could have been a stressful day fun and who carried even the heaviest items without complaining.

Move-in day

Tomorrow is move-in day for my new apartment. Yeah!! I am so thankful for the friends that are going to come and help me move my stuff. I know it probably isn't on their top ten list of things they want to do with a free Saturday. I have great friends :) Before they come I have to finish boxing up all of my stuff. I have officially concluded that I am a packrat (if you ask my family they have known this information all along). I moved out here with all of my stuff in a car--how could I have accumulated so much more stuff since then?!?

The next few days will be pretty busy and it might take some time for my internet to get hooked back up, but I will try to take some pictures and share my new place with all of you as soon as possible.
