This is...?

This week's This Is is a two parter. 1. This is the pair of shoes that I would sleep in if I could, 2. Put up pictures of ourselves pre 1985. Now since I am a shoe horder and I happen to think I was a particularly adorable child I thought these were very good ideas. So...

I love these shoes. I don't have too many things that go with them so I don't wear them too often. They make me smile every time I look at them.


And...


This is me on my first birthday, 1974. I love this picture because it shows how much of a ham I naturally am and look at all that personality...that kid oughta be in the movies!



Here's me, 1979, "graduating" from kindergarten. That yellow number was my favorite dress ever.


And, last but not least, here's me in 4th grade, 1983. I'm lookin' a little redneck in this pic, what with my trucker hat and cut off jeans shorts with that (awesome) Ford pickup in the background. Now, I'm just wondering about my fashion choices...sweatshirt and shorts and a trucker hat? Hmmm



So, there you have me before 1985. Good thing the really embarassing photos all took place between 1986 to, well, the present. Thanks to Love&Afros for this week's shoe love. If you wanna see more, head on over to Three Buttons and check out all of us that are playing along.

Me again... thanks for your comment on my blog about my shoes... you know, if all goes well, before Christmas I'll have my own range out AND will hopefully be able to take custom orders for any size as well!
