flashback

we took it easy over here this weekend. i cannot shake this dern cough and being sick for a straight week is starting to depress me. i am wasting my summer away! i start school in 2.5 weeks! bugged.

i spent the better part of my weekend in front of a humidifier, but some of the weekend i spent organizing thousands of photos. it feels good, everything has its place and i stumbled upon some real gems...

i give you... Frame hair don'ts:

2002:
the time when russ died his hair (and eyebrows) black. this is what he looked like when he met my parents for the first time. mix that with untied workboots, fingerless gloves, no shower for a few days... they thought i was doing service for the homeless. no really.

the butch haircut fiasco of 2005. i was basically buzzed in the back. i did love being platinum... brings out the minx in you!


the time when avery and russ had matching mullets...
2006

the perm incident of 2007:


**************
i also located the outtakes from our engagement session...
75% of them russ has his eyes closed.

my dad said close your eyes and when i count to three open them...

yes!! i just love this guy, no one makes me happier or laugh harder--with him or at him.

when were engaged, i was picking out photos for our "wedding photo montage" and felt the need to create the impression that we were really athletic and outdoorsy. the week before our wedding we set up these little photo-ops doing things that we didn't do regularly, but apprently wanted others to think that we did.
how mendacious of me! i should be embarassed.



our engagement BBQ. never a more giddy duo then right here.

ah memories...
does a cough make you outrageously sentimental?

I laughed the whole way through those. Russ cracks me up. I am in the sentimental boat with you. It must be the cough :)

Nicole Christensen said...

Oh gosh. Your hairs have been through so much. Short brown, long platinum blonde, etc etc. It may be funny now, but at the time, you pulled each one off beautifully! Same goes for Ru.

I love that you set up different photo sessions doing activities for your wedding video montage.
I should have thought of that. haha. clever.

that perm shot is the best! looks like the cover of an Amish Folk Singers record.

rachel said...

Haha! I love the part about the photo-ops doing activities you didn't do regularly. Totally the type of thing I'd joke about doing, but not actually follow through with...

Annie said...

so funny! i remember watching my dad pull stitches out of russ's black, greasy hair, it was disgusting. and al had a particularly enjoyable time with the picture of the perm. i loved the wedding post - i've never forgotten your engagement pic. it's still one of my all time favorites. and i was so happy to see that i was even a part of the big day, even if it was by accident.

Kellee Marie Cook said...

I was laughing so hard at Russ's big eyes picture. seriously so funny. also loved the tennis pose picture- wonder if you guys have picked up a racket since then.. haha. but all in all the final engagement picture was beautiful. you're stunning.

A Girl said...

Ahhh! Coming right up!

jasmine said...

farkle is a dice game. isn't that the best/worst/weirdest name ever?? it was soooo pretty up there. i wanna go back...except i'd like to skip the drive because driving up mountains scares the crap out of me. :)
