7 embarrassing things about my childhood

Monkeyface tagged me to share seven embarrassing things about my childhood. This works perfectly because I've been majorly slacking on taking outfit pictures. Hopefully this week will be a lot less hectic than last week.

This is the only childhood photo that isn't at my parent's house. My dad and I still wear matching purple shirts every so often. But seriously, how cute was I?
  1. I never believed in Santa Claus. And I was that kid in your class who would tell you he wasn't real. I hope we can still be friends.

  2. I don't remember how old I was, but once I was chewing Winterfresh gum and thought that it would make a nice eyeshadow color. Needless to say, it's hard to get gum out of your eyelashes. I wasn't allowed to have gum for a while after that.

  3. I've never broken a bone or needed stitches. Which is miraculous considering how much I fell down. My mom would send me to school with my legs all bandaged up, probably looking like I was a battered child. I was just clumsy.

  4. In 3rd grade I watched Old Yeller (while eating pizza rolls) on at least a weekly basis. It never got old. Or less sad.

  5. I probably owned close to 20 'best friend' necklaces in elementary school. Not because I had a lot of friends, but because me and my best friend at the time went to Claire's on a weekly basis. I'm also allergic to nickel, so I always had a very itchy neck.

  6. I don't have an athletic bone in my body, but in 8th grade I won the award for 'Best Effort' in my PE class. I was always scared of the ball, but at least I tried.

  7. Hot Topic became my favorite store in about the 9th grade. My haircolors ranged from black to purple to green (we tried at least). I probably never looked as hard-core as I intended, and so it's definitely a good thing that that phase passed.

  1. I never believe in Santa either, and I ruined Christmas for my best friend at a very young age--like 4--because of it.

  2. I put gum in my hair once to see if it would actually get stuck. Of course, it did.

  3. OMG, gum in your eyelashes! I laughed out loud at that one (sorry - couldn't help it. Too funny).

  4. Claire's!!! Oh my, flashback to my childhood. I got my ears pierced there.

    I was also very a certain point, I had to take a special PE class called "coordination." It helped though as I went on to play a bunch of sports without getting (too) hurt.

  5. Oh my goodness, eyelash gum sounds TERRIFYING. What a brave child you were.

    Thanks for playing!! :D

  6. I'm super clumsy too (but have never broken a bone or had stitches either.)

    I didn't realize until just now that you had just been asked to share 7 things about yourself. I just awarded you with the Stylish Blogger Award, which of course asks you to share 7 things about yourself. Oh well, I'm sure you can just keep the pretty award!

  7. Oh my God, you were SO cute! :) And I love the matching shirts ;)


  8. ha ha this cracks me up. You were THAT kid in class that destroyed all of my hopes and dreams! I blame you for all the magic in the world:) I had some fun incidents with gum and hair as well. Let's just say I had many a bald spot as a child from cutting all the gum out of my hair.
