Flashback Friday

Filed under: flashback friday — Jana @ 11:21 pm

I thought I would dedicate this weeks flashback Friday to my best friend Misty in Utah.  Since I moved away we never get to see each other but our summers in lake Powell back in high school are still some of my all time favorite memories.

Eating lunch at walkers/wendy’s… Lehi’s high school hot spot:

Ok so that is Traci our other friend jumping with me ( I am in green) in this picture, but Misty was the one taking the picture…and she jumped shortly there after.  That was back in my wild days where risking your life was thrilling and fun.  Now I don’t have any appreciation for adrenaline.  I guess I just have too much to live for…That and now I have the common sense to know what could happen to me in risky situations such as this one. And yes my arms hurt very much when they smacked the water.

My style has changed so much over the years.  This is when my hair was short and hers was long.  (Have you grown it out again Misty?  It’s been a long time but last time I saw you it was short.)

  1. I can’t believe you jumped off that cliff. In all the times I’ve been to Lake Powell I would never jump off the cliffs with everyone else. I am such a chicken. I loved this blog. It makes me miss my High School girlfriends, especially since I just talked to them on the phone this past week for my b-day. I need a scanner so I can post pics of them. My flashback fridays are going to run slim, I don’t have to many old pics saved on the computer.

  4. It is crazy how times change. I have to be honest, I was having a lousy day today before I checked out your blog. I wrote on my blog before I checked yours out and you might be able to sense the bummed out tone!

    Looking at these pictures, I really was a nerd! Although, I was happy to know that I had a best friend to share everything with, and that is all that matters!

    Thanks for the cheering up – I needed it!

  5. Oh yeah – my hair is actually pretty long now. I am growing it out until I have enough to donate it to ‘Locks of Love.’ Last time I cut off over 16 inches, the girl told me I couldn’t donate, since I had died my hair (what did she know?!) I want to do it because I know that when my mom lost all of her hair during chemo treatments, the wig was all that made her feel better. The last picture of us really reminds me that I need to get my roots done! :)

  6. […] to jump from a VERY high rock ledge that landed into a pool of water.  The height was nothing like Jana’s jump, but it was still freaky.  (Let’s just say I hadn’t done anything adventurous until […]
