Yup, I did it. I jumped right on the same train that everyone else is aboard. I didn’t want to be left behind. All my fellow DIY/craft bloggers do printables for holidays, and I didn’t want to be the only one left out of the club. Especially since it’s the cool kids club.
I was always trying to get invited into the cool kids club, so while I waited, I had to live vicariously through my best friend/Homecoming Queen/girl all the cool guys wanted to date. In seventh grade (btw…she is going to roll her eyes reading this), my first ever boyfriend bought me roses for my birthday. I was finally coming out of the dorky, uni-brow/buck teeth stage, and finding my own in the “cool kids wear oversized Nike shirts and basketball shorts” stage. Clearly he thought I was adorable. We hadn’t even shared
my our first kiss yet.
And we never would. Remember the much simpler world of three way calling? Yeah…I’m trying to forget it too. It forever ruined my life. Or just the end of seventh grade. Needless to say, my first ever boyfriend made a startling confession to my beautiful, yet-to-be Homecoming Queen of a BFF that he wanted to date her, not me. Looking back on the photos, I am not surprised. I definitely had a little of my own to grow into. And eyebrows that needed plucking (seriously mom, you couldn’t have given a girl a heads up?).
The good news is that he was just one guy in a
short list of bad boyfriends that would disappoint me. If I hadn’t gone through all of those times, I might not appreciate my husband as much as I do.
And I really do. Especially when he does all the laundry. So please join my new “cool kids” club, so I don’t feel that uncool. I promise I pluck my eyebrows now, and I grew into my teeth a little. And for the record: my beautiful, Homecoming Queen of a BFF is still my BHQBFF, and always will be. She’s definitely invited to the club.
If, for some odd reason, you’re actually interested in the prints, you can print them here.
(Megan from ShortStop Designs is amazing and she is definitely invited into my new club!)
