Top Ten Tuesday: A Step Back in Time

Believe it or not, I have had this blog since July 2005. I think it goes without saying, but a person changes a lot in 3 years. Looking back, I find it funny and almost silly some of the stories I shared... but, at the same time, it's a reminder of fun times and good memories. So with that introduction, I give to you the first Top Ten Tuesday that we've had in a long, long while.

I went back to the first 2 years (05-06) that I had this blog and extracted interesting one-liners and phrases for today's Top Ten. Please vote for your favorite... perhaps the one that makes you smile, laugh, or think, "What on earth was she talking about?"

July 2005
1. She thinks that I am going through an identity crisis because I claimed to be a tree… She's probably just jealous of my tree-like qualities.

August 2005
2. That paragraph is an excuse as to why when I slammed my car door shut (with both sets of my keys IN my car), my brother made the statement, "Taryn, some days I think you are a blonde."

September 2005
3. "You 3 laugh at so many things that AREN'T funny."

October 2005
4. Her secret dream is to run away and become a professional surfer, "even though I've only done it once," she says.

November 2005
5. I'm 19 years old and I'm already showing signs of extreme aging.

6. She is capable of being the lead role in my future dramatic novel.

February 2006
7. Tracy: Taryn, if we lived in Florida right now, I would invite you to the beach this afternoon.

8. Semis on the highway. I've always thought they should have their own highway. It would solve a lot of annoyances.

9. I like to know that I am going to get fed, and better yet, WHEN it's going to happen. It's called nutritional security.

10. “I wonder if there is a bomb attached to it,” I remarked. Kristi stood at a safe distance, and I circled the balloon, trying to eye what could possibly be attached to its string.

Well, there you have it. Vote away! Love you all, T

My vote goes to..."Tracy: Taryn, if we lived in Florida right now, I would invite you to the beach this afternoon."
I'm not sure why, but it made me laugh out loud! It's great!!! Loved the quotes. :)

My vote is definitely going to #9. While I totally identify with this one, I've never heard it put quite in this manner. :)

hahahahaha The funny part of it is I know most of the stories. I totally forgot about that first one. That is so funny. We were walking with Noah. I love your blog. I need to sit and re-read posts.

these were all pretty good (and for someone who has no clue what the context was, that's pretty stinking good), but #1 just stuck out. you can't get any better than tree-like qualities ;]

I looked back through some of the posts to see what they were referring to. I have to say #6 is the best! I completely forgot about your amazing tribute! If I am ever feeling down about myself, all I have to do is read through it- free therapy (or maybe just compensating me for all of my time over the years).

You are the best and I love you dearly!!!
