Walking Down Memory Lane

March 2, 2012
This morning I caught myself walking down memory lane by sifting through old pictures on Facebook. Man, there’s really no better way to feel like time is flying by than to look at old pictures, is there? I feel like just yesterday I was beginning sorority recruitment at Iowa State. Time sure does fly! Here are a few (very old) pictures for a little Friday fun.Ā 
{Senior year school play. I don’t remember much about the plot, other than I don’t think it was very good.}
{Sorority recruitment in 2007. Nothing says intimidation like talking to a bunch of sorority girls for five days straight while they decide if they like you, right?}
{Traveling to Paris in 2009.}
{Hanging out on the set of The Rachael Ray Show with Rachael and Jamie Oliver.}
{Sorority snacking at its finest.}
{Dressed up for an 80’s themed house party.}
{Traveling to Spain with my mom and cousin, Angela.}
Now I’ve got travel fever! I guess I’ll just have to settle for our weekend plans for dinner out with new friends and shopping for new running shoes.Ā 
Anyone else have fun weekend plans?

    I love looking at old pictures. It also makes me realize just how few prints I actually have and that I need to actually get them printed. Have a lovely weekend! šŸ™‚
    p.s. I love your haircut from Paris ’09. So cute!

    First of all- I am new to reading your blog and I LOVE IT! I think you are just so cute! (and my parents have a King Charles and I love him so much so I can relate)! I just have to ask… how in the world did you get to meet Jamie Oliver? I absolutely love him and his show (I a RN in a Master of Public Health program and am focused on healthier foods for children to combat childhood obesity). So I love his show and everything he preaches! Just had to say I was impressed (and I would love to meet him one day)!!! have a great weekend!

    How fun! I love looking through my photos from years back–mostly because I don’t think I realize until then how different I look now. I’m loving all your different hairstyles! šŸ˜‰

    I was literally just doing this (the reminiscing thing on FB) yesterday! The new timeline set-up makes it even easier to get all nostalgic, lol.

    Madison, this is so funny. That high school play!! I’m pretty sure that was me and Cody’s first date. And your saucy red dress. Love it šŸ™‚

    What a great post. Old photos are fun to look at. I was just looking at some of my own old photos the other night. Like you, lots of different hairdos over the years – in my case, some more successful than others. šŸ™‚ Love the shot of you with Rachel Roy and Jamie Oliver. Now that would be my idea of a celebrity moment!
