Blog Challenge Day 10: A Photo of Me From More Than 10 Years Ago (& Some Randomness)

Good Morning Humble Readers!!

By the time this is posted, I will have dragged my Beloved to the big Christmas craft show.  When I realized that I was going to be on mat leave at this time of year, I got so darn excited because I actually get to go to the craft show this year!  In prep for this day, I ensured that our grocery shopping is already done and the only other to do on our list is a stop at a hardware store to pick up a couple of things to help finish off the nursery.  A whole day of meandering through crowds and looking at groovy craftiness geared toward my favourite time of year.  On the list of things to be on the hunt for...
  • Christmas gifts for my parents and my Beloved's mom (in case what I have planned doesn't pan out)
  • A baby sling (something that will work for my plus sized form)
  • A Baby's First Christmas ornament
  • maybe a cute Christmas outfit for the Halfling
Can you tell I'm excited?

The one thing that can potentially ruin my crafty fun today... the fact that I stubbed my toe yesterday, and it's now some pretty ookey colours.   I'm planning on pushing through the pain tho.  :)

So, today's assignment... a picture of me from more than 10 years ago. 

If you are long time readers of my blog, then you will have seen this picture before.  It was one of my first Show and Tell posts almost two years ago. 

This picture was taken in Berlin, in 1990.  Yes, that is the Berlin Wall.  And yes, that is a very bad perm and acid wash denim that I'm sporting.  I was 15 and on a three month exchange program.  It's one of my favourite pictures of me.  It's not super quality, but I look so happy and relaxed.  Not to mention a heck of a lot thinner back then. 

Me... back when I was Miss Baggins
Berlin 1990
It's hard to believe that it was more than 20 years ago that I was there.  Time certainly flies!


  1. WOW! You saw the Berlin wall! That is simply amazing!

    Have fun at the craft fair:)

  2. Love the pic!

    Also, look for a Moby wrap. I love mine. There are different ways to wear the baby (facing in, facing out, sling'ish, on back etc...) and I have no problem tie'ing it around my very plus sized body. I have pics of me wearing Baby G on Facebook if you want to see it in action.

  3. Somehow I am still shocked when I think about it and realize that the 90's was 20 years ago!

    I love craft and art fairs. We picked up quite a few things this year for the nursery. I can't wait to finally put them up this week!


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
