Senior Blondie, or Senior Hottie?

Liz, from A Belle, A Bean, and a Chicago Dog emailed me a few weeks ago about a blog carnival that she wanted to do.  She asked that we post a senior photo from high school this week on our blogs.  Of course, to go in tradition with my days in high school, I proceeded to procrastinate.  I really excel as this skill.  I think my title could be “Most Likely to Procrastinate” underneath my yearbook photo.

So I made it my project last night to look for my senior year official photo.  I have other photos, but this was my most “polished” look, which also means, my hair was combed, and I was wearing make-up.  I also was a little bold that summer.  I decided to get my hair colored platinum blond.  My natural hair color is a tad darker than that.  I think I had my hair colored this light for about six months.  It was EXTREMELY hard to take care of, and I hated sitting in that chair. I called my mom looking for this particular photo.  She couldn’t find it.  I think I made her feel guilty or something…I mean really, I am an only child.  It shouldn’t be that hard to find?  She called me a few hours later. She said that she found this picture in a frame, BEHIND two pictures of Angry Kid.  Note to self: buy my mom some more picture frames.  Angry Husband was out with his friends, so I asked him to swing by my parent’s house on the way back.  He arrived home at almost midnight with the picture.  I had to teach myself how to use our scanner too.  I’m pretty impressed with myself.

I need to take this photo to a dermatologist or something..I think this shall be my “BEFORE” picture.  Look how smooth my forehead is.  And wow, the corners of my eyes….Sigh…this photo was taken EIGHTEEN years ago…Can you imagine? I’m starting to feel a little old now…Class of 1993!

So for the sake of being a “Senior Hottie”, my photo is posted below.  The link-up is open till Monday, May 30th, 2011. Make me feel better, do a post…

So Was I A Senior Hottie? I know….Julie with long hair…it is freaking you out, right?

Do you even know what I look like now? Well it is a good thing I take really random self-portraits on airplanes, right? I took this photo mid-May on the way to Arizona…

I think you look much better with shorter, darker hair. Or maybe it was how full your hair was in that picture. LOL You certainly do not look 18 there. You look much, much younger. You were Class of 1993? I was Class of 1989. How's that for old? :D

I hear you on the smooth forehead, babe! Sigh. I miss those days. And for what it's worth? I LOVE your short 'do now. Have always wanted one like that myself, but I am too scared. It would be sooo easy to take care of! xoxo

pffft. You're not allowed to feel old - since I graduated 3 years before you... see, that makes you the same age as my brother (who will probably never grow up) so you are relegated to perma-youth in my mind :)

I. Love. This!!! You were so cute in high school, and it so strange seeing you with long hair! You rock the short hair like I wish I could. Hope you have a great weekend!

The hair is really stunning and pulled half back in that way with the clip poofs it just right. A proud moment.

Woo hoo blondie! I went blonde right after high school and loved it, but you're right -- it was SO hard to maintain and when it started to grow out I just had to dye it back to my natural dark brown. But it was so fun to be blonde.

We graduated the same year. It seems so long ago but it's been fun to drag up all the memories with this blog hop. You are beautiful - then and now.

The hair color is extreme but the look in general is fairly neutral. I feel like you didn't get sucked into 'fads.' Am I right? I can NOT say the same for myself. Also, you are hot right now. Hotter than in your smoothe forehead days. I'm going to hunt for my yearbook now. Must participate.

That is hilarious. I didn't expect you with LONG hair. Most definitely a HOTTIE! And that pouf...before BUMPITS even. That's talent!

I figured it out. I was actually 16 in that picture. I was 17 when I graduate high school. And we took those photos the summer before our senior year, so I was 16, wow young! Long hair is a complete pain in the arse for me. 1989, not old at all...

I told you that it was meant to be seen. I wish I would have gotten it scanned sooner though for my Wordless Wednesday post.
