Time traveler

I thought I'd get on the yearbookyourself bandwagon! Several of my friends have been doing this lately and it's very funny. If you guys haven't tried it yet, I would highly recommend it for a few laughs. You just go to the website, upload a picture of yourself, and let the magic begin. I used Katherine's picture last night to show her what she would look like throughout time and it mostly received eye rolls from her (accompanied by a few light laughs). But I know that secretly she was cracking up as much as I was.

The picture on the above left is me, 1952. The weird thing is that I look almost exactly like my mom when she was younger. Below is a picture of her in case you want to compare for yourself.


The picture below, left, is me in 1964. Boy I remember that year well. That was the year I got glasses and was going by the nickname Libby. That was sort of my awkward phase. Then in 1976 I highlighted my hair (we called it "frosting" your hair back then) and feathered it back more. I also started going by Liz. That was a pretty good look for me, in my opinion. I'm sure you agree.




As you can see, no matter what decade I'm in, I make it work.

I like the feathered hair look on you. Always have. I can't believe you didn't put in that picture of you back in ought-five when you were in your horse-hair wig phase. Those were the days...

Elizabeth, Libby, Liz....

You really do make it work! And it's amazing that you don't seem to age much throughout time. What's your secret?

I wish I could have used yearbookyourself for my actually high school yearbook pictures. They would have turned out much, much better.

I can't wait to see your pictures, Sarah! You should post them on facebook!

Oh,and Emily, my secret is a bottle of water from the fountain of youth. I'd share it with you, but you know...my supply is limited. You understand.

I'll post mine on Facebook when you do! :)
