In an effort to open up more on my blog, I’ve decided to blog for 5 days telling you all a lil more about ole’ Bayoucreole.
Yeah, I’m a wuss when it comes to opening up. Ya gotta remember that, I was raised in a house full of males and they really weren’t into that sort of stuff.
Because, I’m such a wuss, I”m gonna start out with some easy stuff….lol
My hair was such a weird color. A sandy/brownish color and I hated it. I was happy when it turned dark brown. I’ve been accused of wearing colored contacts but, as you all can see…that’s my eye color.
I can’t see shit but, they sure are pretty.
I loved that dress…my favorite older cousin, Audrey, bought it for me. Seeing that dress still makes me smile.
One earring, one plait hanging down and no front teefs. I put my tongue there to fill the space. I look so happy and I was. I’ll never forget that day. My mom was fixing my hair in the kitchen and her water broke. I was excited because, I was getting ready to get myself a little sister!
That’s what I wanted anyway.
Y’all know how that turned out.
This is where my love for animals began…especially dogs. Just click on the pic for a better view.
My geeky years…lol I must be 9 on this pic because, those are my first pair of glasses. This is when I learned how to crochet. For some reason, I love to crochet when I’m stressed. ..I guess because it’s so relaxing to me. I haven’t done it in a while so, I guess that’s a good thing.
Me with two of my younger brothers. Don’t remember the age but, I know I was in elementary school. We were heading to our school play in this pic…my mom always made our costumes for us. The reason I’m such an excellent public speaker is because she always
forced encouraged us to be in every school and church play.
That’s me with Oracle. I’m 13 on this one and YES, those plaid Toughskins WERE the style back then!
Not too sure about the fact that they were “ankle wipers” though…lol
Bayoucreole getting ready for her confirmation.
Her exact statement was,” with those boys, even if the baby looks just like them, you still could be wrong but,
when your daughter is pregnant, you KNOW IT’S YOUR GRANDBABY!!”
That woman was a mess! LOL
I had no stomach at all so, I had to pull my shirt back to show my baby bump. Life has a funny way of giving you what you wish for because, I didn’t have to worry about that the next time I was pregnant…
If it looks as if I”m holding onto the baby bed for balance it’s because…I was.
Same day, outside shot. Not too shabby considering how huge I was with YellowJacket.
I gotta thank my mom for giving me those good “birthing genes.”
She was pregnant 9 times and never kept any weight…thanks again mom.
I was gonna put a current pic up but, I don’t have any stored in this computer.
Y’all know how I look now anyway.
I gotta get in this kitchen and start prepping all of this Thanksgiving food.
I’ll put another post out tomorrow.
