Beautiful Me

Sometimes we look better than others. The awkward Jr high and teen years are called awkward for a reason. my friend Catie put a photo of herself on her blog. A photo she deems "hideous." She challenged her readers to beat that photo and post theirs for a good laugh. here is one of my less than fine moments caught on camera.note the hair falling out of the 1/2 ponytail, the unruly main straightened and then curled again. I tried and failed. The bangs...oh the bangs.. The EYEBROWS! The gray shirt that looks like long-johns At LEAST my two front teeth had been taken care of by this time. I had to add a photo of the teeth/ hair/ shirt/eyebrows of this next photo. I'll let you guys decide which is worse.

There you go Catie! I think I look much worse in both of these than you do in your photo. At least my bra isn't showing though...:) I'll also challenge MY friends to beat me in finding the most hideous photo and share it with the world.

I can bet you on worst picture but I will have to look because I might have burned the photo to be very honest.

Its true, Heidi's photo is pretty bad. Mom tried to give her a stylish haircut. Imagine a really bad mullet when mullets were in. Heather you are adorable with those dimples and bright blue eyes.

Lindsey said...

Oh gosh!! I wish you could've found a picture from when you used to put half of your bangs over the other half. Like that family picture that you're kinda smirky with the black skirt that we both had and the white turtle neck! HAHAHAHAHA! Oh man. I love it! I don't know if I can take this challenge. We'll see. For the record, I think Catie's is worst. (Sorry Catie) Maybe it's just cause I got used to this look when I was matching it along side of you. Oh to be a tween!

Heather said...

Haha Linds. I didn't see a picture of me with the "bangs over the bangs" but I'm sure that was the worst look I ever sported. :)

I think you were beautiful then, and I think you are beautiful now... I guess I am a mother!

Can certainly see why Randy fell in love with you! I always thought Tyler and Lily looked just like you but not in these pictures.

Heidi said...

Sorry Heather I will not be able to post any of my really bad school photos. I went though all my books and I must have gotten rid of them. Unless mom has hidden them away. If so please mom do not post pictures of me from JR high.:)

Grandpa and Grandma B said...

I have them Heidi!!!! Heather I think you look great for a tweenie I agree with your Mom you were beautiful then and you are beautiful now. I think the same way about Heidi and that is why I kept the photo's.

I remember that girl!
I like the commentary more than the pictures though. :) At least you never had the big feathered bangs with a bad perm in the back. If I even knew where to find those pictures I would never be brave enough to post them.
(It is good that you tweeze your eyebrows though. Just sayin)
