Sunday Social

I officially need to pre schedule all of my link up blog posts because I am just never around the day of! I did have a legit excuse this weekend though, I was in the lovely city of Pittsburgh helping my brother move into his new apartment. Specifically, I spent Sunday moving his friends heavy couches up 8 twisty flights of stairs and cooking 100 meals for all the boys. Have I mentioned I’m the BEST sister?

Sunday Social

What were you like in Middle School/HS? (pictures)
I was weird. I mean, I’ve always been weird. I was really shy and quiet and only came out of my shell with my best friends or onstage or at work where I ran birthday parties for kids. I was always super busy between 30 hours a week of dance class, play rehearsals, choir practice, color guard, working, teaching Sunday school, and fitting in time for friends. I read a ton and saved up my money to see Broadway shows. I loved doing things for my friends – throwing surprise parties and making creative gifts and silly parodies.
At least this is one step up from a mirror shot.
I thought I was a Hollister model.

This is me doing a yak impression and my friends being afraid of me. Typical.

Spent my life in stage make-up
What were your favorite past times?
Performing, in any aspect. Even if it was just re-enacting a funny incident for friends. I loved being onstage – acting, singing, and dancing. I was the first student to ever be in all four plays and all four musicals in high school. When I wasn’t performing or rehearsing, I loved going on crazy adventures with my friends. We used to have dance parties in the Dairy Queen parking lot where one of my friends worked. We had crazy themed parties (ChristmaHannaBirthdayka) and went to all the dances and school functions together. We also spent weekends playing card games and hot tubbing. I loved my job, even though it was pretty crazy running birthday parties for 30 five year olds. I loved being creative and acting like a kid. I also liked teaching Sunday school – my class was four and five year olds and they were so adorable. Traveling was my biggest passion and I was so lucky to go to places like Hawaii, Mexico, and Europe throughout middle school and high school. I also spent lots of summer weekends on the lake boating, tubing, and water skiing with friends.

Lake day!
Celebrating a friend’s 16th birthday
My friends all loved to ice skate, but I am terrible at it and would hide on the side of the rink until one of my friends agreed to tow me around the ice like a child.
Climbing Mt. Everest aka the giant mountain of snow in the movie theater parking lot. So very cool.

What songs were you obsessed with? (Backstreet Boys anyone?)
My best friends and I had a whole dance routine to Mambo Number Five which we HAD to perform every time we heard it. I also loved B*witched, N*Sync, Britney, Chrisina, and LFO. I spent most of high school listening to Broadway soundtracks: Les Mis, Aida, Rent, The Apple Tree, The Drowsy Chaperone, Chicago, Spring Awakening, 42nd Street, and many, many more.
What fashion statement do you look back on and cringe?
My middle school/high school style wasn’t too bad, but back in 5th grade I decided I was too cool for jeans and refused to wear them. This resulted in a lot of black sporty striped pants paired with nice tops. Yikes.
fashion model.
Who was your celeb crush?
I didn’t really have celeb crushes. Instead I pined over boys at school who I would never actually have the courage to talk to. I was super cool.
What were your favorite tv shows/movies?
Breakfast at Tiffany’s (and everything Audrey), White Christmas, The Charlie’s Angels movies, Spice World, Blue Crush, Finding Nemo, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
TV I was obsessed with Everwood, Friends, and TGIF
