Show Us Your Life - School Pictures

It's Show Us Your Life Friday - and today we are featuring School Pictures!

I think the answer to "Would you Like to Go back to High School" can clearly be answered as "no" when you look at some of my pictures.

Second Grade
This was my favorite picture - I love the dog ears.
I can't wait for Harper to wear dog ears.


Fourth Grade
I was SUCH the teacher's pet
8th Grade
There she is.................Miss America

I really just don't know what to say about this picture other than "Bless My Heart"
9th Grade
Yellow Bow - check
Purple earrings - check
What am I wearing?
10th grade
I couldn't find my jr or sr pictures but there is just a lot more big hair and braces.

I know, I know.......you are looking at my pictures and wondering who the blond girl who blogs is? I'm wondering myself.

I hope your pictures are as entertaining (or humbling) as mine!

Oh I love it Kelly! You look so different as a blonde! My internet is down so I'll gave to add mine tomorrow.

I added your dad on Twitter today. I wonder what I would have thought 10 years ago if you'd told me we'd be "Twitter friends"? Ha!

momMYsliceoflife said...

You were cute then, Kelly, but I think you are like a fine wine... you just get better with age!! My mom saw your picture the other day when she was visiting us (I know, shame on me for being on the computer while my mom was here, haha!) and she said "Oh, she is a real Southern Beauty!" :D I would agree.

The Carrolls said...

Love it! Have a great weekend and GO SEC! Roll Tide!

Dina said...

All your fashions look very familiar! And I was dying to have glasses and braces when I was in school. I never got either of them!

Andrea said...

lol@you...brave brave girl. I think you're cute. big hair and all...I wish I had my pictures (my Mom has them) so I could participate. I am laughing at the fact that there are only 11 listings at the moment, and normally by now you'd have over 100.

TriciaNae said...

Love them!! I look back and wonder what I could have possibly been thinking on some of my outfits? Acid-wash, tight rolled jeans? Really? Fun stuff!

number17cherrytreelane said...

The pictures just got better and better as I scrolled...

Khordaddy said...

You still look the same in all of them...'cept for the dark hair of course ;)

Steph said...

This is so funny. I am going to put my senior pic on my fb profile just for laughs. I dont think my hair fits in the photo either. Love in the eyebrows. ha It's so much fun to laugh at yourself. I am starting my blog this weekend and I can't wait.
Thanks for the laughs...

Happiness Is... said...

These are classic! Thanks for sharing :)

Maddy said...

Please answer my email i am getting PRETTY frustrated!
Do you have another email you answer imediatly?

Jenny Garland said...

Love, love, love this post! I have a gazillion "bless my heart" pics :)

Courtney said...

Those cracked me up! You look adorable!

Hillary @ The Other Mama said...

The great thing is you look adorable! Exactly the same!!
And I think our force field of hair in those days was really something special. We all had it. How did we even talk to each other? Or whisper secrets? There must have been a certain way we all leaned our heads so our hair didn't give way! ha!
Thanks!! This is great fun!

SarahMerritt said...

Kelly you are and were so cute! This one is fun I wish I had all of the pictures my mama has that would be a trip for sure!
Sarah

Megan said...

This week's topic will be so fun - I love old pictures! I think your pictures are less of a reflection of you, and more a reflection of the style of the time!

And also, GO BIG XII!

In His Army said...

Love these! I wish I was at home so I could scan a few in and do a post. My 6th, 7th, and 8th grade ones would be borderline of TOO HUMILIATING to post, but I would if I had them handy! I think you wore big hair in a good way...I still remember looking at the yearbook your senior year and thinking you were Miss America! You look great no matter what color your hair (or size) your hair is!

Kelli J. said...

Great pictures Kelly!! Thanks for sharing. Now that we are grown, we know we didn't make the best fashion choices. Now I fear the day my kids are that age....2 boys....pimples....yuck. I want them to just stay little forever!

T said...

Girl I love the pics...too funny. Just think we think our babies and there clothes are so cute and one day they will look back on their pics and say...what were we wearing.....lol. Thanks for all your posts. I love reading them everyday. You help me to be a better mom and person. Tammy

PS to the girl Maddy that is about to have a heart attack that you haven't responded to her email...get over it. You do have a life in case she forgot. Sorry had to say that:)

Melissa Miller said...

~WOW! Kelly you look soooo different. I had no idea your hair was so dark. I'm sure you get told that one alot. You were beautiful and still are.

~Blessings, ~Melissa :)

Jen said...

You crack me up...
Not many people would be so humbled as to put up their 9th and 10th grade pics.
those are wonderful.
love it.

Crazy Family said...

I think your purple and yellow accessories are a subconscious tribute to LSU Tigers.... maybe not your precious Razorbacks, but SEC nonetheless!!! Ha!

Ahem, bless your heart.

Tara G. said...

We're the same age and I have similar clothing and accessories in my photos! I'll have to dig through a tub and see what I can come up with!

Amber said...

Oh my, 8th grade. Bless your heart is right! I had VERY similar glasses and some photos that could definitely fit right in with yours. (wink) I wish that I had some of them to post, but my mom has all of my school photos at her house! Thanks for sharing and adding smiles to our evenings.

Hayley said...

So funny Kelly! I think we all have photos like these :-)

Great idea!

Bernie said...

These are great! You are beautiful and I love how honest and open you are to the blog world. You are such an inspiration. This is great.

Thanks for sharing.

Bernie

Kate said...

Thanks for having this, I have looked through all 30 so far and laughed so hard at some I couldn't actually see through my tears, brilliant and brave, top drawer!

Ashley said...

cute! My 5 year old said "her hair is WOWZA!"... made me laugh! I on the other hand loved your hair and had big hair too so don't worry!

Mary said...

I love it! Love it! Love it! I agree, the dog ears are my favorite as well. Have a fabulous weekend.

Penny said...

I think you're gorgeous! Love the big hair in the last picture! You gotta love the late 80's, early 90's. =)

Karen said...

Wow, I can not believe that is you!!!! You were born to be a blond :)

Karen

Becca said...

you look so different now! :-) I love this -- but I'm definitely not sharing my pictures! haha :-)

Grits414 said...

Love you as a brunette! Looks very natural on you! Thanks for sharing

Laura said...

Kelly - I really do heart you a lot, but holy eyebrows batman! Haha! :)

hopeful #1 said...

Priceless!

Sarah said...

Thanks for sharing! What you call "dog ears" I grew up calling "pig tails." :)

Apryl said...

Hey Kelly,

I know you think Harper looks just like SCOTT, but I think she looks just like YOU! Her nose, mouth, and eyes! Those are funny pictures. I enjoy reading your blog every day. Harper's beautiful!

Apryl

Mary said...

Those are precious. You can tell you're the exact same person as you were then-so kind and sweet--just a lot better at style/clothes! Ha!

Nelson's Mama said...

You are exactly right - you have DOG EARS!!!! Pig tails are braids...

Love the pictures, thanks for sharing.

Rachel H. said...

I love it! They are so cute, and you are so right...I was wondering about where the blonde hair came from. I truly thought you were a natural! :)

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

Those are great Kelly! I look back at mine and think either "What was my mother thinking" or "What was I thinking?" Mostly with the hairdo's, of course. My mom cut my hair super short in 1st grade and traumatized me, and then there was the home perm in 5th grade, and then those gastly big bangs:)

Melissa from the Blue House said...

Oh my ~ I had those SAME GLASSES in 8th grade. Plus braces. Plus bad hair.

NOt sure I want to pull out those pictures and relive the memories! LOL

Melissa @ fordsbigbluehouse.blogspot.com

dylan said...

That 9th grade picture makes me think you might like LSU just a little bit, way way deep deep down. Way to represent the SEC West! :) Have a great weekend!!!

Todd and Courtney said...

You do look so different as a blonde! I love both looks! You are so cute!!

Aura said...

haha! You're so cute, I love that you have no shame. NO ONE will see my middle and high school pictures. I was hideous!

Teresa said...

Lordy, lordy, these look like my pics, and I am not posting them. BIG, BIG Hair. Makes you wander what we were thinking. Graduated in 1981 so you can imagine.

Kandi West said...

WHERE are the Lucy glasses????? I was hoping to see those again. :-) Love you much!

The Rest is Still Unwritten said...

I love this! So funny! You look so good as a blonde! I can't believe how dark your hair really is!

Just Jac said...

I think you look a lot like Drew Barrymore in the first picture when she was in ET! YOur pictures are great...sadly, I do not have the courage to post the majority of mine, lol!

Megan said...

That you are brave enough to post these pics and have a good sense of humor about them is just wonderful.

Indeed, bless your heart :).

p.s. I didn't get to comment on your last post, but I agree, Whooooo Pig SOOIE!!! I got tickets to the Razorbacks/Aggies game at Cowboys Stadium for my husband's birthday. We are SO excited!!

Kelly said...

Girl, I have some that could rival those, LOL! My husband lovingly refers to them as my dinosaur and Lion King days. ;o) (Before anyone wants to deck him, I coined those phrases...and they stuck, haha!). The dino days are my awkward elementary school years, and Lion King, well, refers to the big 80s bangs. Oh, hair, glorious hair!

Happy weekend, Kelly and family!

The Momma said...

I remember being JEALOUS I didn't get braces and glasses like the other girls. ;)

I had a huge gap in my teeth during most of my school years. I hated it, and still hide my school pictures! :) Thankfully now it closed up on it's own. But darn it I wanted those braces! :)

Vera said...

Oh my gosh you're so cute!! Ha ha! I can't bring myself to look at my braces pictures... I didn't wear them as proudly as you ha!

Leigh Ann said...

Love it, love it, love it. Ninth grade. Hilarious! You know what though, I think we kind of look like sisters in these pictures! Same hair, same eye brows. LOL!

Kristina said...

Showing those pics makes the progress you've made look so good, right?!?!? Why is it that we ALL have pics like that...was there no "normal" back then?!? HA!!

I sent an email...I know you're behind...so if you havent gotten to it that's FINE...my link is wrong on the prayer blog. I think the "s" was left off the cackles. It should be www.kristinascackles.blogspot.com for Kristina Stephens. Thanks for all you do for those that are hurting! God is truely using you to do big things!!

Emily said...

Dog ears?!?! Up here we call them "pig tails." Dog ears...that's funny...

Harris Family said...

Your 9th grade picture is AWESOME!!! We all have pics like that! Lucky for me, mine are in a box in the top of my mom's closet!!!! I want to keep it that way!

marie said...

I enjoyed seeing the pictures of your "younger days"but you look so natural with blond hair.
No school pictures I would share, red hair and freckles , nope, don't think so, Strange that now its all white and no freckles, just wrinkles.

The Foster Home said...

Great pics. It's always fun to reminise.

Kelli said...

Oh my word! Love it. I too have some pictures that should stay in a box...under a bed. But my mom likes to hang them on the WALL. The best is my perm-grew-out so I have hair that looks like a dog chewed on it. :)

Staci said...

Woo-hoo! Girl, you were stylin'!!

noahandlylasmommi said...

You look so different with dark hair. The smile is still the same though :)

Sonya said...

Glad I wasn't the only one with the awful perms! What was I thinking!

Silvy said...

wow! wow! that's really all i can say. the crazy thing is that your face still looks the same in the pics, but goodness girl, you have changed quite a bit! thanks for sharing the pics.

Chris/ty said...

Oh my goodness Kelly... I think what you had to say about your 9th grade picture was the funniest thing I have heard in a long time! I had a good laugh about that one...

I am a "silent blog stalker". Love your mommy insights and honest heart. :)
Blessings to you...
Christy

Linda said...

Your blonde hair just looks so natural and like it belongs on you! When I saw the dark hair I just couldn't believe that it was your natural hair color. Either way,...you are a southern beauty.
Love your big smile and your big heart!

Love, Linda @ Truthful Tidbits

Preppy Coastee said...

You loook sooo different now! LOL Love the big hair!

Bourg Family said...

I'm a week late posting my school pics & McLinky is closed! No biggie. I got frustrated last week b/c I deleted the darn post twice on accident! LOL I'm still learning! Love the pics. Mine aren't too crazy b/c I can't find all of my pics so I had to depend on the pics friends had!
