Kristen has been such a "model" here for us at the "Fro me to you" blog carnival, that I thought I would "model" after her. I also want you to know that there will be plenty of laughter with this post, so if your bladder is not strong, I suggest you go take a potty break. We can wait.
Now I hope you all appreciate this, because I had to dig deep for these. I dug so deep, that I actually found pots and pans that I thought were lost forever after our remodeling. I also found my apple peeler corer thing! :) I am real excited about that, since apple time is getting close.
Wait a minute what was I talking about? Oh yeah, "model" behavior.
When I was younger, I believe 16 to be exact. I was on the Teen Modeling Board at Castner Knotts, which was later bought out by Dillards. How I pulled this off is beyond me. I had the self confidence of a newt. If a newt has any self confidence. I just remember there being an announcement at school, and for some reason I said hey that might be fun. I remember what I wore and everything. Actually I found a picture of what I wore. Its a picture of me a dance though not at the auditions.
(By the way if you recognize yourself in these pictures, I am sorry I didn't get your permission to post them. I just only know how to get in touch with one of you and I already told him he might be on here one day. If you want me to take it down I will. :( )
I remember the judges asking me to speak German, because I had that on my list of subjects I was taking at the time. I don't even know what I said to them. I hope it wasn't anything bad.
All that brings me to this. The day I found out, I had made it onto the board, I had just went through a hey lets cut my hair short phase. I sure hope they didn't pick me because I had long hair. :(
One of the first things we did was a back to school fashion show. Here are some of those pictures.
Don't ask about the Three Stooges, I don't know what that was all about.
Robin must have been taking these pictures. You can see right up my nose. Glad there were no "bats in the cave".
Boy I was working it! Yeah Right!
Now I not only modeled there at Castnor Knotts, I like Kristen liked to do fashion shoots. Mine were TEEN magazine fashion shoots though. Here are a few examples.
Did everybody were socks with flats and long skirts, or was that just me?
Oh ya'll better really love me for this.
This next one should give me lasting embarrassment for a very, very, very long time.
Lordy mercy, I was such a dork! I obviously loved that sweat shirt though.
So there you have it. My model career such as it was. It was very short lived. They don't take to kindly to girls who get pregnant, being on a teen modeling board. Something about setting an example.
So for more thoroughly embarrassing photos of other people, please go over to Kristens at We are THAT Family. That is if you can stop laughing at me long enough to go do that. :)
