Ole School Picture Link Up

Tuesday (the worst day of the week) is OVER BAY BAY!!! Thank the LAWD (Mesopotamia;)! I finished up Day 2/Level 1 of the hated beast (Jillian) and not going to lie, my chest and arms were so sore yesterday. I could hardly do the push ups last night - but I cranked them puppies out and murdered IT!!! Today my body feels so much better. Tonight I am running 5 miles - no Jillian in my life tonight - time to switch it up - or I will be bored in 2.2 seconds. I will look at her face again tomorrow - puke...

Revelation after doing *the beast* (that sounds kind of perv...;) - my legs did not hurt one bit. I believe the running as a TON to do with that, BUT my upper body is "NOT IN SHAPE". Time to get those Jillian arms that all the girls are talking about - or fake it until I make it as Holly would say.

Speaking of Holly - I am linking up with her, Kimmy, and Jennifer for.....


Alright - background here... My mom has a box in her basement with ALL my grade school pics - for some reason she won't allow me in it. Every time I ask - she says "oh we will make a day and go through it together" AND... now 19 years have passed. MOM... I know you read this - WTH? COME ON!!! What do you have in there - trust me it would take A LOT to shock me;)

Let's begin....

Mel 4 years old - pastels RULE...
Mel 5th grade - Slouch Socks, Uniform, and Adidas jacket - AWESOME!
My grunge years - sophomore year of High School  - Airwalks anyone?
Senior Year Picture - hello eyebrows and forehead!
Yeah College Face.... BOOM!
So as you can see I don't have that many school pictures - well actually I do... but they are in my mom's basement, in a box, that can't be revealed to me for some reason.... I am coming for that box mom - watch out....

Tomorrow I will be doing another link up with the the lovely Holly and Jake..... I am pretty much obsessed with these "Finish the Sentence" Link ups - too much fun... If you want to link up - all you do is answer the questions below and link up....
