I Was a Senior Hottie

Because I love a belle, a bean, & a chicago dog, I've decided to link in to her Senior Hotties meme.




First, I was not a hottie. I wasn't a mega-nerd, but I wasn't cool. Just so we're clear. I'm only using the hottie title because it's funny—for a lot of the other people linking up, too, I hope.

Secondly, my senior picture isn't all that embarrassing. The late 90s were a fairly neutral time fashion-wise. Although I've always been fairly neutral. I've never been trendy, which means I wasn't super cool, but it also means there aren't many embarrassing photos of me in 80s fashions.

So, for your viewing pleasure, here is my not-that-lame-or-embarrassing senior picture:


My senior picture. Books make me look smart!


So there you go. Are you willing to share your picture? Go here to link up!

  3. Rachel! Please tell me how you've convinced blogger to allow threaded comments.

    Also, you were so cute! And is it just me, or does the book background make your brain look bigger?

  4. @The Mrs I found a code somewhere! I just Googled "reply on Blogger comments" and it gave me a site with a code. Heck if I could find it again. :) I wish they were nested, though.

  7. @Elena I graduated in 1998. Big hair wasn't really a thing...

  8. Ok, so I graduated in the 80's. No pictures to prove it (she says) but all the good movies in the last 5 -10 years have been written by people from the eighties?! I maintain the 70's was the decade of bad taste! Always enjoy your blog. God bless, Tracy

  11. Very cute. Yes, books DO make you look smart. I'm wearing a feather boa and have some nasty sparkley background stuff in mine. That makes a girl look trashy :)

  14. I beg to differ.
    I think your hair is trying to be big.
    AND...
    do I detect a dangly heart earing?
    I think I do.

  15. @Leighann My hair is naturally curly---this pic is me keeping it from being big. lol It's not intentionally big. And that is a heart earring! I still have that set, actually...

  16. Rachel, I love your smile, then and now. Definitely not an embarrassing pic. I have one in front of books too!

  19. I love the picture! It is far better than my Senior photo! haha Oh my gosh...I laugh at myself here while shaking my head. I had such blonde hair...and the guy who took my photo cast the light behind me in such a way that the photo taken cast me in this "angelic" type light-scene, and it is ridiculous! haha I will have to dig out my yearbook to get that scanned and send it to you...oh my gosh, it is just crazy!
