5 Favorite Pictures of Me

A few of my favorite fellow bloggers who have participated in the Style Challenges have been linking up as the Lifestyle Sistas! They came up with topics and present their lists on Fridays.   This past Friday the topic was 5 Favorite Pictures of Yourself.  I had such a fun time reading each of their blogs and looking at their pictures that I decided to link up too!!  It is really hard finding photos of myself that are my FAVORITE and finding photos that are just of me!  If you are my friend on Facebook, you probably think this is not true, but most of my profile pics have been cropped!!  And selfies on Instagram are not actually meant to showcase me, but rather an outfit I'm wearing, so NONE of those are my fave!! HA! I had a fun time trying to find these though! Here are the five I came up with!

This one is my absolute fave!  It's actually the first picture I ever remember taking and then seeing of myself.  I was premature when I was born and spent quite a lot of time in the hospital, so there aren't many pictures of me!  I was also my parents fourth child, so that could be another reason!!  Hahaha
And I just loved playing dress up!  I was four here, I believe.

This is my blog profile pic, so obviously I like it a lot!  Taken during a bachelorette party in the Summer of 2003.  And I was wearing red pants!  THAT.IS.ALL.  :)

In August of 2005 two friends and I went for broke!  We took a Mexican cruise out of California, so decided to go a few days early and explore L.A.  One of our stops was Disneyland! This isn't necessarily the best picture of me, but it just makes me happy!! Eeyore is my spirit animal!  I love him...I feel like we are the same.  He's pretty solitary himself! We pretty much attacked each other!  HA!

This is summer 2007 when I stood on line outside of Fenway Park to get Red Sox tickets for 4 hours!! By MYSELF!  But I was still smiling!!  My cousin and I took a road trip to Boston that summer and had the best time.  We were total tourists!  It was very random that we decided to actually wait so long for tickets, which is why I was by myself. I waited on line while my cousin went back and got our stuff for the game and checked on our great-aunt (who graciously let us stay with her that week...may she rest in peace)!   Boston is one of my most favorite places in the world.  I blogged about this trip {here}

July 2009- My niece Amy was born!  I love this picture because Amy is laughing at me! (And I am TAN!)

 Bonus Pic: This is Amy today...she's in Kindergarten.  And she is NOT A FAN!  Hopefullly in June she'll feel differently!  :)

This was fun!  Wished I'd linked up with the ladies sooner!!  Go check out the Lifestyle Sistas' posts!!

Have a great weekend,
