Ode To Awkward Family Photos

I can’t believe I let someone talk me into allowing this photo to be taken. I’m the turkey that’s being held up if anyone was uncertain. Please note the ridiculous arm shelf and pegged jeans. Oh, and Brooke Shields called; she wants her eyebrows back.

Askward familyI could have saved this for Sunday since this is, I think, my junior or senior year of high school, but since the whole family’s involved I couldn’t help making a dedication to one of fave blogs, Awkward Family Photos.

  1. I know you just saw me fling my head back in laughter but I have to add it in here to.

    Bwahahahaha. Its not bad enough for Awkward Family Photos, but hilarious. And you really dont want to know what those people would say. Better to keep it here where only your friends and family can openly mock you.

    1. Yes Dawn, but you can bet at that age I had a lot of my insecurity wrapped in that moment while I was thinking, OH MY GOD it takes three grown men to hold me up!! But look at my game face: still smiling!
