Me, Myself, & I {link up #3}

I’m linking up with Breanna for the MMI party. Here are the questions this month:
{1.} When you’re feeling down, what do you do to pick yourself up?
A run normally makes me feel better. Just me, my thoughts, and the pavement. I can really take time to think and I normally come home feeling better. Other things that help include Starbucks, shopping, and friends.
{2.} If you had to live in a different time period which would you prefer?
This is tough. I think the time period we live in now is the best for women to be living in but if I had to choose I think I would pick the 1920′s-1930′s. I would totally be a flapper girl too!
{3. }What is the most creative Halloween costume you’ve ever worn?
Growing up my dad worked at a local haunted house. That meant I had access to getting my face painted by a pro. I would go before school to go get my face painted and would be the best dressed! I remember being a witch in kindergarten and my face paint was the only to last all day! I wasn’t dress up but this is one of my favorite photos of my dad and I (my mom tells me I was crying because I didn’t want my picture taken)
This was 1987 for the Cincinnati Enquirer
{4. }Five weird things about you we wouldn’t know without being told?
-I had braces twice, once as a kid and once as an adult. 
-I didn’t get my license til I was 18 so I didn’t have to pay for drivers ed.
-I only missed 4.5 days of high school, my junior and senior year I was the only one in my class (about 90 kids) that had perfect attendance
-I only had two wisdom teeth and instead of growing up they were coming in sideways! 
-I haven’t had a pop in over 4 years. It has also been 4 years since I’ve had McD’s, Wendy’s, BK, & other fast food places.
{5. }What would you tell your 16-year-old self?
Those girls who ditch you aren’t worth your time. I don’t stay friends with them after high school. But the ones that do call you, they are still your friends. That boy you just started dating is a good one, he will one day be your husband and be just as sweet and loving. Box blonde hair is not for you! Spend more time with your nephew while he is a newborn, he grows up way too fast!

    I do drink the occasional Pepsi, but I haven’t had fast food since 2007ish. I’m shocked when I hear of people eating it everyday!

    That is SO COOL that you got your makeup done every year for Halloween! I would have loved that! And yay – we can be flapper girls (and wife’s) together! :)

    Hahhaa totally have the box blonde hair thing going for my 16 year old self too, and totally jealous of your “no-fast-food-self-discipline.” I need that in my life!

    The advice i’d give my 16yo self questions are always so interesting to me: You started dating your Husband when you were 16?

    I’d tell myself to quit dating that boy I was dating. He was mean then, and he’d be mean again a few years later when we tried dating again. I’d also tell myself not to answer my phone while I’m driving – that would have saved me one totalled car & a helicopter ride.
