Throwback Thursday!

Happy Thursday everyone! It's almost the weekend, I hope everyone's had a great week.

Technology is amazing. Today's post is brought to you by my college computer. I started school (college, that is) in 2001. That's 13 years ago. Do you remember what computers looked like 13 years? I do. This is basically what my college computer looked like:

That's right youngin's, whoop it up. I owned one of these. Needless to say, this computer went belly up, um, 7 years ago. My dad kept the hard drive from my old computer, and right before the hubby and I moved to Kentucky, he gave the hard drive to the hubs to pull my pictures off of eventually. Eventually came last night. I was amazed that the hubby was able to pull pictures from that old hard drive, and transfer them to our Mac. First of all, I can't believe Windows from that long ago was able to talk to our Mac. I thought the pictures from that computer were gone forever, which I was kind of sad about, because almost all of my college pictures, and some of my high school pictures, were on that drive. I'm sad no longer, the hubby recovered about 200 pictures last night. Let's take a look at the life of a college student in 2001:

Goofing around.

I remember this was a sorority function, but I have no idea why some people are wearing camo and some are wearing Hawaiian.

This was either graduation night, or close to it.

Graduation shots!

I think everyone worries they are never going to do shots again when they leave college...

I don't know... But I love this picture! :)

My favorite Mexican restaurant in Eugene, El Torito.

What else do college kids do? Party.

Another sorority function.

My sorority class, senior year. I have a picture from freshman year, you won't believe there's only 10 of us left after 4 years!
Here's my freshman sorority pledge class. Big difference!
I think this may have been Molly's (the girl in the middle) birthday.

Local bar, down the street from our house.

The next couple of pictures are from my high school best friend's wedding. She got married on Dec 31, 2004. This was taken on Dec 30 (my 22nd birthday), and the night of her rehearsal dinner. This is from my birthday lunch at a local Mexican restaurant, though.
I got a sombrero for my birthday!

This is at the rehearsal dinner. Pretty sure Liz is holding me up, I had a lot to drink that day. Hey, it was my birthday!

Anna, me, and Liz. We all played volleyball with Erin for 4 years in high school. Volleyball is actually how I met these girls.

Goofing off at the rehearsal dinner.

Erin and her bridesmaids.

Liz, Anna, and I goofing off at the reception.

High school friends. Lauren (on the left) played volleyball with us all through high school as well.

The whole fam! Looking quite young, I must say :)

Back at that local bar in college.

Another college pic.

Again, a sorority function. I cannot tell from this picture what the theme is. I do know I must have really liked camo in college :)

This picture is actually from high school.

Another high school picture. This group of girls travelled to Hawaii together after graduation, this picture is from our last night there.

Prom night, high school.

Halloween and my millionth time dressing up like Britney Spears. LOL.
One last college picture. This was from my sophomore year of college, 2002. Wow, I'm feeling really old after this trip down memory lane :)


  1. Love all these pics! I vividly remember what 2001 computers looked like lol. And remember dial up? Fun times.

    1. I'm wondering what computers are going to look like in another 13 years. And dial-up? Worst. Thing. Ever. LOL.

  2. I'm kind of terrified when I see my old college photos. I think I have them on a few DVDs. For the most part, I think I'll happily let them stay on those DVDs and likely disappear someday... :)

    1. I had a good laugh, I'd forgotten about most of these pictures :)
