Throwback Thursday

I recently downloaded the Timehop app and it's been so fun to check it every morning to see what I was up to on that day in the past!  I have mine synced up with both my Facebook and Instagram but since I've had Facebook longer, that's where the really good stuff comes from.

Side note -- remember when you had to have a college email address to sign up for Facebook?  I was SO excited when my @wmich.edu address started working in the summer of 2006 because I could finally get an account!  Now everyone and their Grandma has it which takes a bit of the fun out of it.  While it is nice to be able to connect with anyone and everyone, you just can't post the same stuff you could of back when only your college friends could see it ;)

Since this weekend has been one year since my bachelorette party, I thought I'd do a little run down of what I was up to at the end of June... each year since 2006!  Let's see what gems Facebook had in store!

2006

I had just graduated from high school and June was filled with all things graduation.  This is one from my graduation party -- what am I wearing?!  So funny.


2007

My first summer back at home after college was a bit of an adjustment!  I missed my friends I had made and wasn't used to having to follow "rules" anymore.  My poor dad.  I headed back to Kalamazoo for a night of shenanigans - aka really just to see Nick again since we were living 3 hours apart (and not dating at this point).


2008

This summer was spent living in Kalamazoo!  Nick and I were dating (finally) and I subleased an apartment with 3 of my girlfriends.  I worked on campus at a terrible desk/office job but there were some fun times, too!  We look like babies in this picture :)


2009

I spent the summer at home in Holland doing a management internship with Macy's and Nick graduated and moved to Chicago.  This was the beginning of a one year long distance relationship while I finished up my senior year -- and the official start of our Chicago adventures!  This was my first time on the L, on the way to my first Cubs game (and that probably wasn't water in that water bottle, ha)!


2010

I moved to Chicago and started my first big girl job!  It was a summer of major readjustments -- a new city in which I barely knew anyone, a new job and a whole new lifestyle.  It was an adventure for sure.


2011

This was our first year in our apartment, living together!  We also lived with our friend Adam who passed away almost one year ago.  Adam liked to do things big and for my birthday, he decided we had to go all out.  There was a pre-game party and then limo's, bottle service and a late night after party involved.  I don't know how we did it back then!  Here's Adam and all the ladies.. just the way he liked it :)


2012

This was my designated "summer of fun."  June brought the Detroit Tigers to town playing the Cubs which never happens since they're in different leagues.  There were 3 games in 3 days and I made it to two of them.  This was only 3 short months before we got engaged -- and I was clueless!


2013

And one year ago this was happening... getting wild with my favorite girls.  It was an amazing night -- from what I remember anyways!








Happy Thursday!
Linking up with Annie

  1. Love this! I haven't downloaded the app yet, but now I just might have to! Such fun pics and love seeing the "baby pics" of you and Nick.

    P.S. Is it ever water in a water bottle when you're on your way to go out? Nah...

  27. Okay...so I know I'm almost a week late to seeing this post but I love the timehop! And I totally remember my BFF from high school instant messaging (yes, AOL) me telling me to try and sign up for this new thing called "Facebook" because her college email was already activated and it was waaay cooler then Myspace because only college kids could sign up!
