Awkward Family Photos

At the beginning of this week, I decided to kill time at the bookstore during my coffee break. I ended up having a great laugh when I came across the Awkward Family Photos book.

It kinda reminded me of my awkward younger years. At the age of 6, I had to start wearing glasses (probably because I read in the dark, and played tamagotchi on the train constantly) and at that time, what was "in style" were the big huge circular eyeglasses. Not gonna lie, i was even a bit of a tomboy.


Check it out, i've even got the boy swag going on, sporting my big circle glasses WITH stings attached might i add! Those were to make sure I didn't drop them on ground if they accidentally came off. Check out the other girls in the background - cute, girly, mary jane shoes.. but me? You can't see it but I'm wearing boy black shoes.

Now it's your turn! Let's see a picture of you from your awkward years!

Don't forget - My "Live, Love, Laugh, EAT!" hoodies are 35% OFF until Tuesday, June 22! Come get yours here!

But that days made the way you are now!!!

How many brothers or sisters do you have? I have two sisters, so sometimes I was envious of other friend's outfit X(

Who cares what the other girls are wearing??? You're the happiest one in the picture...and being a tomboy you probably had the most fun. If that little cutie is your awkward picture, then you don't have any.

PS - You missed my 100th post, which you inspired (in part).

My friend, you would get the "You make me laugh/think Award" and you're real close on the "Mary Poppins Award". =)

I keep coming up w/bad ideas for t-shirts. When I wrote the post, I thought "Amusing musing muse Award" would look great on a t-shirt, but no on would stop to think about what it meant. But if I keep trying, something good has to come out eventually--right? LOL

Haha, awww.

I just had flashbacks of my own childhood pictures, I think I was similar, complete with the glasses and Tamagatchi. Did you wear mid-calf socks with sandals too? :D
