unveiling the not-knickers

I never did find a picture of the knickers. Man, am I BUMMED about that. What's even more irritating about not finding a photo is the fact that I know there's a picture out there with me in my FAVORITE OUTFIT. I am standing in the backyard by the old swingset, grinning for all I'm worth, wearing those darn red shorty pants with the snaps at the knees - complete with red and blue plaid short sleeve blouse. I might be sporting some pigtails.

Don't you hate it when you know that something like a photo exists - you can even describe it in detail - but you can't find any evidence of the thing? I have this same experience with a green and white striped shirt. I totally remember OWNING this shirt, but I have no memory of getting rid of it. And yet it is NO WHERE TO BE FOUND. Weird.

In place of the knickers, you get this little gem:


You ALSO get the winner of the Plain White Box PIF: Cherish at A Girl and Her Blog. What's so cool about Cherish being the winner is that she's 1. From CANADA and 2. A new blogger. So not only does the Box get to travel out of the country, we all get to visit someone new! As you can see up there to your right, I've added the promised WHERE IN THE WORLD IS THE PLAIN WHITE BOX icon - and as soon as I get it sent to Cherish, I'll update the link and post the picture. I promise to get it sent out soon because I can't wait to get this thing started. Now Cherish, please don't let us down! You get to host your own PIF with the Plain White Box (and all it's lovely details and rules... oh the humanity) and the whole circle will continue...

Yay! Am now tired from using so many exclamation points. Am going to lay down in front of the refrigerator.

my 2nd grade picture not only is where i got the nickname "bulging eyeballs" but it is also where i am wearing a fancy plaid brown/beige button up top. what most people don't know is that i'm also wearing my beige corduroy knickers. sweeeeeeet.

there's a picture out there of me as a crawling baby bawling my eyes out with duct tape over my mouth. CPS would have a hayday today, but back then dad and the fam thought it was a real hoot. it' a hilarious picture.... if anyone could ever find it.
