Show & Tell; When I was 17


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?

I drove a 98 Honda Accord. Best.Car.Ever. As far as lasting me and reliability goes. When my kids are teenagers? They are getting Hondas. Moving on. Job? I worked at Meijer for 3 and a half years in high school as a cashier so I think I was still there when I was 17. However sometime later on during that year, I switched jobs and started working at Bravo. Anyone ever have bravo? It's the best italian food ever. 

What was I usually up to? Well. Friends friends friends. Usually we were hanging out at someones house... playing Euchre... watching movies... and hanging out. Driving around... because you know... we all just got our license and that was the "cool thing" to do.

2. Show us a picture of you when you were 17 {roughly}.
Lovely, right?
3. When you were 17, tell us what you wanted to be when you "grew up."

A mom. No really. I dreamed about my family, first and foremost. And that dream? Well that came true. However, when I was 17 there were also other things that I wanted to be as well. I thought I wanted to be a doctor. Actually, I was certain I wanted to be a doctor. For one, I knew I wanted to be in a profession where I could help people. And two, well... if I were to be honest here... it would be because of the money. I quickly realized when I went to college and started nursing school that being a doctor when mean that I would sacrifice one of the most important things to me and my future... having a family. And now that I am a nurse? And I see what these doctors have to go through? I know I made the absolute best decision for myself.

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.

A type. Hm. Absolutely not. I think I dated the most opposite guys in high school. A jock. An Abercrombie model {if you know what I mean}, and then a flamboyant guy. If you know what I mean. That one just made me giggle, but seriously my friends still to this day make jokes about that one. To this day. And how long has it been? Exactly.

Lets just say, I wish I had met my husband a lot sooner

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?

This is an easy question! Yes. Yes. And Yes. It turned out exactly how I had envisioned it. In fact, please don't laugh, in high school I would tell my friends that I wanted to be engaged by 22, married by 23, and have my first baby by 25. Where those numbers came from I have no idea. But lets do a little recap here. I got engaged at age 22. Married at 23. And had my first baby at 24. Pretty darn close right? In all seriousness though.... I knew that I wanted to go to college, have a great job {which I do}, and start a family at a young age. Thankfully God had a similar plan for me... because at the end of the day those numbers would be just that.. numbers if it weren't in my cards. 

Don't even ask me what I envision my life  in ten years. I don't have any numbers for that.
