Blogger Confessions {XVI}

After a few months’ hiatus, I’m back with a new Confessions post! Woo!

Today’s confessions are all about my childhood – From daydreams to sport stories that even I laugh about.

In 5th grade I did a report on Michelle Campi, an Olympic gymnast who competed for the same gym as I did, and she lent me her Team USA competition leotard to wear for my presentation. #BestDayEVER {Additional confession: I wore it under my clothes all day…}

I was a tomboy as a kid and nearly cried when I had to buy a dress as a 4th grader to travel to gymnastics competitions. We had to “dress” for our plane trips and my long-suffering mother had to drag me around to find something suitable. I still remember the dress – It was an off white Henley material with flowers on it. This is especially funny given I’m SUCH a dress girl now…

My parents owned a bookstore while I was growing up in Sacramento so I spent my weekends sitting on the floor reading anything I could get my hands on.

My first international trip was to the Yucatan with my family when I was in 7th grade. The trip included scaling Mayan temples, getting the worst sunburn of my life, learning to snorkel, and eating primarily eggs & fruit for two weeks because I’d recently decided to become a vegetarian. Oh, and fun fact, I refuse to pose for pictures for the duration of the trip. I wasn’t a terribly pleasant teenager.

Growing up I wanted to be a doctor. And the first female president of the United States. Tsk. So strange that “Compliance officer” wasn’t at the top of my list…
