Sunday Social Linkup

Time again to linkup and get to know a little bit more about some of the awesome bloggers out there!! Be sure to enter my fun October giveaway while you're here! :)

This week's questions:

1. What were you like in middle school and high school?

Hmmm... probably pretty nerdy. I never really gave a crap, though, so that made me at least a little bit cool I guess! haha! I was "most school spirit," hanging with the boys in the "dawg pound" that got crazy at basketball games and I wore lots of weird clothes that I picked up at thrift shops. I pierced my belly button - which was scandalous at the time - and dyed my hair. I got straight A's and managed to stay out of "official" trouble, though, which is about as much as a parent can ask for from a teenager, right?? LOL! 

Thrift store shirts, round Lennon sunglasses

Back row with men's thrifted blazer. Aren't we soooo alternative?? haha

2. What were your favorite pastimes?

The fine arts were actually "cool" at my school, which was super fun and a positive outlet. I was majorly involved in the drama department and also sang in the choir and played drums in the marching band. I definitely was a little angsty and liked to make indie movies with friends and do small town USA things like drive through spooky cemeteries and hang around "haunted" bridges and stuff.

Happy with the drumline (center, velvet choker, LOL)

Looking like a 16 year old biker with Screech... haha!
3. What songs were you obsessed with?

OMG, music has always been a major part of my life. It's hard to pick any specific thing. I've always loved rap/hip hop - the Beastie Boys have always been huge for me. And there was definitely lots of rock and the whole Seattle scene including bands like Nirvana, Porno for Pyros, Pearl Jam, etc., etc.! 

Beasties Love! RIP MCA :(

Kurt Cobain... the 90s in a nutshell

4. What fashion statement do you look back and cringe?

Who knows??? I wore anything and everything (and still kind of do). I don't really ever regret wearing anything crazy. I'm more likely to regret playing it safe! LOL! I've got tons of weird clothes from the 80s and 90s in storage in my basement! Here are a few of them! 

highwaisted sheer floral cropped tights! LOL

I was all about these custom jeans, painted by a friend!

Made these Guess jean shorts myself... LOL

5. Who was your celeb crush?

Oh... *sigh* Keanu Reeves and Jared Leto. I felt like My So Called Life WAS my life! Hahaha! 

STILL love Point Break! <3
Jordan Catalano... So deep! LOL!

6. What was your favorite movie?

The Blues Brothers has been my favorite movie forever! I loved anything with Keanu (Point Break, Bill and Ted, My Own Private Idaho) and I wore out VHS tapes of Reality Bites and Mystery Date (Ethan Hawke much? LOL). My obsession with Quentin Tarantino began in high school when Reservoir Dogs and then True Romance came out. He's amazing!!

Reservoir Dogs. Yes, please.

We almost named a kid Alabama after this movie! Have you seen True Romance??? Seriously. It is one of the BEST movies, ever. And full of fun celeb cameos! 

Hahaha... Wow. This was a trip down memory lane! Can't wait to read everyone's answers to these! Thanks for stopping by!! :D


  1. Those clothes are the hottest. I pretty much wore anything and everything. I would certainly wear that. Is that weird?
