Stilettos and Diapers: 17. Show & Tell.


17. Show & Tell.

I've only been trying to link-up with Becky for months. Finally getting er done. 

1. When you were 17, tell us what kind of car you drove, where you worked, and what you were usually up to on the weekends. 

When I was 17, I didn't have a car. I had back surgery when I was 15, so I didn't even get my license until I was almost 17. I did rock my Mom's minivan quite a bit, though. It held lots of friends.  

I, um, didn't have a job either. My parents just wanted us to focus on school and not worry about working. Back then I thought it sucked to not have a job, but now that I look back on it? Pretty awesome.

My last year in a kids church band was when I was 17. We travelled all over the country and to England together. We recorded 3 albums. It was such a fun time in my life!   

2. Show us a picture of you when you were 17 {roughly}.
Ahh, senior picture. I was 17 when I graduated high school and couldn't be happier to be finished! 

3. When you were 17, tell us what you wanted to be when you "grew up."

I delivered my baby sister when I was almost 14 and I knew from then on what I wanted be a nurse or midwife. I wanted to help people and for some strange reason, loved the idea of wearing scrubs. I also knew I wanted to be a Mom. I dreamed about my wedding, being a wife and making lots of babies.  

4. When you were 17, tell us the kind of boys that you dated. Did you have a type? Do you have a relationship you remember well? Tell us about it.

I ended a serious relationship and started a new one {with the hubs} when I was 17. It was a busy year! The only common denominator in the guys I've dated is height. I like 'em tall.  

5. When you were 17, tell us where you pictured your life 10 years from then. Did it turn out the way you expected it to? 

I pictured myself at 27 to be a stay at home mom. To have dinner on the table and a clean house when the hubs got home from work.  

1 of those things has turned out as expected! Even though there was a time, pre-kids, that I thought I wanted to go back to work instead of staying home, I'm right where I always thought I would be. Well, minus the clean house. 



  1. wow, back surgery at 17, that's crazy! I totally rocked my moms minivan as well..oh yeah! What kind of band we're you in, sounds fun! I'm visitng from the link up!!

  2. Love this and all of your pictures!! I did a bad job of coming up with old enough pics! :o)
