Throwback Thursday.

December 22, 2011
I am going through my old Photobucket account and I found all of these old pictures of Mike and I, from when we first met, first became friends and started hanging out all the time. I'd forgotten what a paparazzo I used to be back then! I used to take pictures CONSTANTLY- of anything and everything! I'm glad that I used to be that way though- now I have a visual diary of that time in my life.

These are the first pictures that Mike and I ever appeared in together- his 22nd birthday party, January 2005. He looks about 12 here! Please notice the gross cigarette in my hand too- so glad I gave that up!

Mike and I had our first ever kiss during a drunken party moment and thanks to an ex friend of ours, the moment was captured on camera. (circa April 2005)

Another drunken party moment, circa April 2005. Mike and I had our second make-out session during this party. It was thanks to this particular make-out session that I made the transition from "Mike is just a friend" to "omg omg I am obsessed with this guy and I can't stop thinking about him."

October 2005, Mike drove over to my house at about 4am during a tropical storm. Neither of us could sleep (with all the storm noise) so he braved the weather to come over and hang out with me. Our tongues are green because we were munching on Fun-Dip candy.

The first ever dashboard picture. This picture started the Dashboard Series.

This was taken about 5 minutes after the first time I ever told Mike that I had feelings for him, circa November 2005.

These were taken at the first concert we ever attended together, circa December 2005. This began our habit/obsession/tradition of attending as many concerts as we possibly can together. (I can honestly say I don't miss my septum piercing or my 00g stretched ears, but I do miss that '5' necklace! I wonder where it's at these days...)

2005 turned out to be a great year for me. I met Mike and little did I know that he would turn out to be my best friend and the love of my life.


  1. I love this post. I absolutely remember those party pictures from LJ. It is so WEIRD to look at your arm and see one tattoo. WHO IS THAT WOMAN.

  2. OMG i remember all of that! greg's housewarming party and then the "frat" party. holy crap that feels like forever ago.

  3. I was thinking the same thing as Janna about the tattoos. It is so weird.

    I can't believe i remember ALL of these except for Mike's birthday.
