Hi friends, today is a very special day. Today you can really make fun of me. Today I share with you one of the most awkward, gawky and downright embarrassing periods in my past: my puberty.
Boy oh boy, a happy teenager I was not. So insecure and with no self confidence but definitely too wise for my age at the same time. Hopelessly wanting to fit in, and just never quite succeeding.
I am so glad those days are behind me, I would not want to go back to my high school years even if you’d pay me.
Those days are great for a good laugh. And not only my early days are an embarrassing memory, so are the ones from my fellow bloggers.
So check this out, a contest that will have you giggling, laughing, remembering and wondering.
I am part of the riddle….
Let’s take a ride in that DeLorean parked outside and go back in time. Back to a time before there was Pinterest, Facebook and Twitter. Before chevrons, mercury glass and ombré were hot. And most importantly, before there were blogs! We’re going back to when these DIY gals were worrying about how high they could get their hair, was there food in their braces and oh no…not another zit! Talking on the phone for hours meant stretching that long spiral cord beyond its limits and tying up the only phone in the house. Common purchases for these DIY gals may have been the latest cassette tape, neon bracelets, a swatch watch and a tube of clearasil. You wouldn’t catch them dead in the hardware store, totally unheard of to the max! Are you there yet? Do you see leg warmers or jelly sandals? You’re getting closer…the time machine has stopped so step out of your DeLorean and behold…the time before blogs:
Do you recognize any of these popular DIY bloggers? I don’t know how “popular” they were back then. Do you think you could recognize them in High School, Middle School or Elementary School? For sure! These awkward youngsters will one day be the brains behind your favorite DIY blogs. And they are giving a $300 Lowe’s Gift Card to the first person who can guess which faces match with which DIY blogs.

So can you find me in that line up? Is that not the most awkward, embarrassing and terrible picture I could possibly have posted on the internet? Yeah I think so too. I hope you will still love me.
So did you love puberty? Where your high school days truly ‘the best years of your life”? Or are you just as glad as I am that they are far, far behind you?
Let me know what you think about the contest. I think it is the biggest hoot ever. We are all halfway expecting that no one will guess all of them correctly but we may be wrong. In any case expect an update and reveal post in the near future.
