So tonight, while hanging out with some of the gals, I was challenged to prove that I ever had blonde hair. I've mentioned before that as I've gotten older, I've had this identity crisis realizing that I'm not blonde anymore. But, after seeing the pics of me in Jerusalem from when I was about 19 years old, some of my friends don't believe that I was ever blonde. So, tonight I ventured down to outer darkness (AKA, my basement) to look in the many boxes of old junk that I should really just set on fire. I couldn't believe the things I was finding. Old journals, tapes and cd's, and even a 32 cent stamp. Do you think I can still use it? It looks so different!
Anyway, so this post is for all of you naysayers (and you know who you are!!!) Yep, that's right. I'll humiliate myself by posting these old pictures just to prove once and for all that I did have blonde hair (and some crazy big hair, too!). If you knew me back then and can vouch for my blondness, do me a favor and leave a comment. You ready for this? Bring on the public humiliation...
I was a sophomore in high school here...gotta love the soccer shorts!
Yeah, I had a thing for John Travolta. Junior or Senior in high school.
Love you, Naomi! Don't kill me for posting this picture! Those were some fun times. Junior in high school
Man, that was some serious big hair. You would not believe how long it took me to do that! I used some serious product and spent an hour with the blow dryer scrunching it just right. I had early morning seminary that started at 6:30 and I was up at 4:45 getting started on my HAIR!!!
After a few months at Ricks college, I decided to stop perming my hair. I think that is when it started going darker.
So, I never said it was white blonde...just on the blonde spectrum.
I couldn't find my baby pictures or else I would have shown you how it all began...
Do you believe me now Kris and Tami?
I dare all of you to dig into the old photo albums and post a few...
