5 | old pictures + their stories

1 | i was a nanny in prague for a hot second in 2008. i left the country to make my farmer miss me and hopefully snag a proposal out of him. it worked…two years later after i had already moved home.
 2 | at a baby shower i helped plan for a dear dear friend we hand-made a game called pin the sperm on the egg. yes…just like pin the tail on the donkey. that's the mom-to-be's mom blindfolded with sperm in hand in the background.
3 | widely-known fact…my farmer can dance. and he's not afraid who knows it. he's the type of dancer that does the flippy, throwy, turny things. i've been dropped on my head…a lot. 
4 | my big sister and me…we're besties. she lives in california now and i kind of hate it. i love it…but i hate it. come visit soon kelli.
 5 | to round things out…this was taken after a night out during a wedding weekend for my farmer's cousin. i think i'm eating a chalupa. it's safe to say…i don't remember a thing. hello? karli? what planet are you on?

happy friday everyone. don't have as much fun as i had in that last picture. a bit of sound advice from me to you. 

link that thing up.

  1. My brother is a farmer and he too can dance like nobody's business. Hmm, maybe it's part of the job requirements. Must know how to operate large farm machinery. Must know how to dance a proper jig when the cows come home.

  7. This is such a great idea! I will have to do this sometime, credit to you of course, as long as I can find some pictures that aren't too...unflattering. Love the 'pin the sperm on the egg' game - hilarious!

  8. i love love love prague! and i also love any pin the blank on the blank game. since we played pin the weiner on the man at my bachelorette party i think it is only fitting to play pin the sperm on the egg later in my life.

  23. Ahh! Gotta love the guys who can flip you while dancing! We swing dance, and my husband's not too confident with flips. He can lift and dip me...but I'm basically the same height as he is so there's a slightly higher risk of head hitting the floor when it comes to flips. My little sister got backflipped a couple times by a random guy she was dancing with last week. It's fun when you're not dropped!!
