Photo #1: Jess, Gay, and Ryan (wasn't that his name?). We were all friends in college, and I even went on several dates w/ Ryan Eggbert. Funny thing about this guy--he's afraid of showers...something about him almost drowning when he was little. Long story short...I don't date smelly guys!
Photo #2: Me and my sis, Marlena. This pic was one of the first taken by my littlest sis, Becca. It was taken by one of those old school cameras that went horizontally, and it was my favorite, neon orange! It was Becca's first picture-taking experience. "Becca, are you sure we are both IN the picture, in the middle?"..."yep...I know what I'm doing, guys"....well, what you see is what you get. We were going to Homecoming here, I think.
Photo #5: This is a pic of Jules, Olive Oil, Me, and Mena. We went to Rick's College together one summer. Jules lived in ASSPEN (yes, I misspelled it on purpose...has to do w/ the odor of that place), and the rest of us lived it up in the dorms. What a fun summer!
Photo #6: Mena, Jules, Troy, and ?. The girls went to DI and bought hideous dresses, but they stunk so bad that they wore clothes underneath them. I suppose they had fun that night (even though they smelled funny).
Photo #7: Mena & Olive (Ollie)...Don't remember why we made the sign, but we thought it would attract guys somehow. It said "Get your meat beat here" and Olive drew a great arrow, and she actually wore it around campus one day....crazy girl!
Photo #10: Don't you remember when wearing a white t-shirt and jeans was cool? Here are my two crazy sisters hanging out together! Awwww...such sisterly love!
Photo #11: This was one of my favorite pics of my lil sister! We went out back, and I started taking pics of her...she is so beautiful! Yes, we wore TONS of make-up in those days, but she looks just as good w/o it, too!
Photo#12: Here is my parents (get a load of the hair on my mother and her large-rimmed glasses), my lil sister Becca (what's up w/ the large hair) and my sister, Marlena & her hubby. This was while Marlena finished nursing school and lived at home for a few months after getting married. This was a pic sent to me while I was on a mission in Chile.
Photo #13: Now THIS is a good pic! Andrea had not discovered how to use make-up, and I had discovered the dark-red lipstick! I was in a high school choir called Madrigals and was dressed for the occasion (check out the bangs and brows), and the fam was there to support me. And YES...I still have the costume, and break it out every now and then for Halloween!
Photo #14: And last, but not least...my good friend Jessica, who I rarely ever talk to anymore (ugh!). This was a pic she thought I'd gotten rid of YEARS ago! We were roomies in the dorm, and we were being funky that day! Don't even ask...cuz I don't even know what we were thinking!
There you go...a glimpse into the past of me & my family and friends. You all should do the same! It was really hilarious to go through old photo albums, scan in the pics and post them. I think I'll start a TAGGING thing.
So, I tag: Emily, Gay, Jess, Olive, Shelly, Steven, & Tami.

MASTER BEDROOM- ya, really not much in here yet. That is a compact refrigerator in the box...something that has yet to be used, but Steven is thrilled at the idea of having water or a Coke next to his bed for whenever he wants it. There are 2 closets, and I may end up STILL putting some of my shoes/clothes over in Steven's one day (he he he).
LIVING ROOM- The couch was given to us from another young couple before they moved to the East Coast, but it's quite cozy for now. You can see the coffee table which was a PAIN IN THE $%* to put together, but we are now proud owners of a matching coffee table, 2 end tables, and a magazine rack (and Steven & I made it through almost 3 movies while cussing at each other and getting all upset at directions that don't make ANY sense).
SECOND BEDROOM--right now, it's just full of boxes, but it will be the storage/computer/sewing/random room in the house. Steven & I have decided to put things in here that have no other place in the house. But, if you need a place to stay when you come to CoMo, you can stay in the random room, free of charge!
p.s.- this is only a small portion of the boxes that were stacked in here! This pic was taken after 2 days of going through boxes!
p.p.s.- Can you find Steven in the bottom pic? (He REALLY is in there...)

Furniture: This one is by far my favorite! I've already been following this tip, and didn't even know it! I'm glad to know it's okay to do so. Does that mean I'm still going to hell, though? I don't remember ever hearing this one mentioned at church...
