Happy Wednesday, friends!
It’s the March edition of Let’s Look!
If you don’t know what this is, once a month, Erika and I do a little link up where we “look” at different aspects of our lives (and then if you blog, you share and link up too!). We have been doing this little linky party for years now, and it’s always one of my favorite posts each month because most of the topics are YOUR suggestions!
And today, we’re looking at…OUR FAVES FROM HIGH SCHOOL & COLLEGE.
What does that mean?
Welllllll…when we put out there what you wanted to see on Let’s Look this year, many of you wanted to know what our favorite things from high school and college were, so we’ve looked way back to the ’90s and have some faves for you!
Hello, Shay circa 1999 🙂 .
One of my faves? Dancing! I danced from 3 until I graduated at 18 and was the First Lieutenant of our school’s very large drill team my junior and senior year. I did everything from tap to ballet, lyrical, modern, hip hop, jazz…I did it all. I was busy with other activities (student counsel, NHS, church youth group and more), but when I think back to high school, dancing always comes to mind first.
Want to know another fave from high school and college? These two…
…Ethan and Ellie 🙂 . They were my favorite fave. I babysat and was a nanny for several families off and on, but I was continuously a nanny for Ethan and Ellie (both adopted…which I LOVE!). I started taking care of Ethan when he as six months old and then Ellie came along 2 years later and by the time I was 22, I claimed them both as my own (and their parents too!).
I traveled with their family, I got to know all of their extended family, a big part of why I made the decision to go to college where I did was based on my proximity to them…they were a HUGE part of my life.
Today, these two are 23 and 25…what the heck?! I still love them both 😉 .
So, those were a couple of big things, but here are the fun/random small things…
What was my favorite:
Drink: A large Sonic Diet Dr. Pepper with vanilla
Fast Food: Sonic’s breakfast burritos. Random…but true. I used to eat those or their grilled chicken wraps all the time.
Starbucks order: Skinny Vanilla Latte
Place to shop for clothes: American Eagle
Thing to do on a Friday night: Dinner and a movie (I used to love going to the movie theater)
Shoes: Dr. Martens
Author: John Grisham
Perfume: CK One
Skincare: The three part set of Clinque (soap, toner and moisturizer)
Color Nail Polish: Revlon Vixen
TV Show: Friends
Movie: Legends of the Fall
John Huges Movie: 16 Candles
Restaurant: I loved me some Cheesecake Factory
Pet: My cat named Chloe
Style Icon: It went from Alicia Silverstone in Clueless (high school) to Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde
Other random things I loved back in high school and college…I loved me a VHI or MTV video countdown. I could get sucked right into those in seconds! I could also get sucked into TLC’s A Baby Story or A Wedding Story. Do you remember those?! I would accidentally “binge” those way back in the day.
What else?! If you have any other “what was your favorite” from high school and college questions, ask in the comment section, and I’ll answer!
Awwwww…the good ole days 😉 .
