Sounds like a book I would read, huh? This is actually going to be a rather embarrassing post, but hopefully amusing. I’m in spring cleaning mode, even though we are in full-swing southern winter here (it’s about 40 today!) So today I tackled my closet. A room, way bigger than I ever thought I would need, but overflowing with stuff. Now that (most of) the baby weight is gone – the excuse I’ve been using to NOT clear out for the last few years, it’s time. And even better – I’ve been seeing TBT all over – so this fits in perfect for a Throw Back Thursday!
Today, things are going into three categories. Keep, Donate, Trash. Can you guess which each of these falls into? (Hint – if these things have survived 15-20 years with me, they may stick around longer…) Although now that I have documented, maybe I can finally let go!
So here goes (I apologize for all the wrinkles – like I said – some of these have been with me awhile!):
Field Hockey Jerseys
One of my first pairs of Doc Martens
Every bridesmaid dress I’ve worn (and my wedding dress – not pictured) I even have shoes to match some of these.
(Sorry – Didn’t feel like displaying these – so bad picture)
The dresses I wore to both my high school and college graduation
Overalls – short and long (praying someday these will come back in fashion – love them!!)
Hot Flops (a previous client of my husbands – will these ever be cool?)
Bell-bottoms from a 70’s theme party in college
“Devon” shorts. Ugly – but they have the name of my dog on them (and the town I grew up in)
Foo Fighters Shirt (a very early gift from Steven – way too small now and see-through)
Happy Valley Shirt – A drinking town with a football problem – I need a new one – love this shirt!!
Random Russian Shirt (from my visit in 2003) no idea what it says or is for.
A sampling from EVERY 5K/Race I’ve ever run. Proof that I used to run!
And my piggy bag. Awww!
What is lurking in the back of your closet?? Thanks for stopping by today!
