then and now: school pictures.

raise your hand if you have at least one awkward school photo hiding somewhere. they help build character right? well, that's what i tell myself, at least.

somehow i thought this outfit would make for a cute picture. note to self: no flowers pins, especially when they are as big as the head and having the hair down will help avoid the faux mullet look.

so sorry audrey, mommy will try better next year. and if it helps you feel any better, my school photos are just as awkward.

don't you love the bowl cut and velvet & lace frock? plus who can resist the brown shag rug and matching back drop. the '80s were great!
