(a day late) take me back tuesday: oregon and nike factory billboard


*don't forget to check me out today at masala chica!*


i know, i know... i'm a day late.  sorrs.  i know you all are so compassionate and kind that you understand, right??  today's take me back tuesday takes us back to a 4th grade-ish meredith where i was around age 9.  my mom, little brother, and i went to oregon during a summer vacation trip.  my favorite part about the whole trip wasn't the scenery or the gorgeous mountain air - it was the huge nike store that had everything and anything nike and was like five stories tall. (really it may have just been two stories, 9 year old meredith may have made shit up.  whatever the case, the nike place was HUGE.)  remember, i was totes into soccer? well, since all my favorite soccer players wore nike, i thought if i did i'd be THE next pele or mia hamm all decked out from head to toe in my "just do it!" gear.  (google "pele" and you'll see how awesome he was.)  i was kind of a big deal, you see.  so here i am on one of our hiking trip all g'ed up from the feet up in my nike gear.  i clearly thought i looked good.  funny, i don't feel the same way now looking back at these pictures.  *sigh*

Awesome!!! I always love nike outlets and their shoes but their shoes HATE me. They always hurt my feet :(

Note: You could have called this Way Back Wednesday. So happy to have you back and feeling better. ox

You were only nine?? Very cute!
I just read your cucuracha post on MC, and OMG, I would have flipped my crap right out if I saw that in my car. I also do that when I see a bee in my car. It probably looks hilarious if you drive past me when I'm doing the lamaze breathing.

The other sight gets the cockroach story and we get this? I'm switching to the other sight. Or I'm Lobbying for better material, (now that I know you are a lobbyist I am going to incorporate that into every post).

Are you like a generic lobbyist or do you just lobby one cause? Because if you are a generic lobbyist that is going to make my torture even worse you know.

It's insane how much you look like my sister when she was that age! You guys could have been twins. Not so much anymore, but I will have to find a picture of her from the days of yore and show you. TWINKIES!

That 9 year old looks like she could kick my ass. Kinda scared.

Elizabeth Marie said...

You are so cute! I remember wearing my socks like that hahaha...ahhh.

Allyson said...

Bwaahahaha...you were a NIKE QUEEN!!! Ah..Mia Hamm...she was so fantastic for about 10 minutes. I LURVED her!! I remember feeling the same way about the Nike on Michigan Ave when we went when I was about 12. I mean Nike having it's own store? Not in small-town KY...just Nike within a shoe department within JC Penny. That's sheer awesome and I love how proud you were. Your mama loved you to hook you up with that. My mama didn't love me quite Nike-enough...more Reebok-enough.

ScoMan said...

Maybe Nike should abandon the sinking ship that is Tiger Woods and start sponsoring you.

RedDreads said...
