Take a walk with me.....

Are you all ready for a long walk down memory lane? Yesterday it was clean out the attic day and man  o man did I underestimate how much was in there!!! LOL.....And of course I had to whip out my phone and document this! 
Lucky me I had Tony and Quinn my bestie Becky's family.........and I will say it again....THANK YOU...I could of never gotten any of this down without them.
I mean look at this! I was only able to go thru about 1/2 of this last night and I will get the rest tonight I hope....................I think it is funny how all this moving and packing makes me feel, I literally feel like I am leaving part of me behind and starting over. And when I go thru things it is hard, seeing memories that tie me to Oklahoma and my whole life actually. And ME the girl who NEVER cries..............many tears were shed last night.
I found memories after memories......I can't share them ALL with you but I thought I would give you a glimpse of what I found and a little about who I was............... This is actually my very first dance costume when I was 2 1/2! Can you believe it? In this box was years of dance costumes, dance shoes and cheerleading outfits!
This is a book we made in 1st grade and would you guess.....I wrote mine about an animal.........cute huh?
I also found my Cabbage Patch and look........here is my Cabbage Patch adoption papers, I remember how exciting this was..........Kids these days are missing out on so much.
Yes, that says October 16, 1989.......I found many spiral notebooks that I called my journals. I think these were something we did in class but I am not 100% sure! Life was so easy then.........And no, I have never had good penmanship!
Ok, this baby is VERY VERY special............. we all had 1 thing growing up, right??? This green little bear wearing overalls was mine. My Oma went back to Germany when I was young to visit her family and this is what she brought me back. I slept with it every single night thru high school. My mom had to wash it, re-stuff it and sew it up over and over. But this baby right here is love...............
And look what I found...............this is the onsie that was put on me when I was born and I actually had so much hair the nurses put my hair in a baby pony tail. It is hard to believe that something like this has survived 31 (almost) years.
Something else.......I found a plastic baggie with another baby onsie (no picture of this) and inside was a note written by my 11 year old self that said ""Special Keep Forever, Marissa DuBois first baby onsie from the hospital. Keep it forever because I love my baby sister so much" And I bawled.
Now, lookie what we have here........this gown (beading was SOO in style in the 90s) I wore this to my Senior Prom as well as Homecoming................
Here is the back, I mean back then this was quite the sexy dress but it is nothing compared to what kids wear these days!
I was nominated for Homecoming Queen my Sr Year.....................I didn't win but my best friend Jennifer did!
Here is my Sr. Prom picture with my best friend and date Brad and yes, look at my BUTT! I have to say that ALL during HS that was my "calling card" HAHHAHA!! I can even remember the conversation about this picture with my parents........we all said it is like the lighting was made for my rear! HA! Oh to be that size again..............
Senior year Pom.........I found a whole box of HS and College pictures and they were a wonderful walk down memory lane. At times it doesn't seem like me.....but like I am looking back at someone I use to know.
This was Junior Prom and my date Jeremy......sadly he was my boyfriend and being a crazy HS girl I broke up with him before Prom.....LOL! Awkward**
Ok.....these last few we are stepping WAY back in time................ this will show you I always loved a tan and being in the pool..........
And I love this picture considering now I have a black cat, funny how things come full circle! You can  see the love written all over my face..........
And lastly friends......... I have always been a book worm...........Somethings don't change!

I hope you enjoyed my look down memory lane....it is hard to believe that all these memories plus so many more are spread out all across my garage!
