Writer's Workshop

I guess Mama Kat moved to another bloggy address and I don't know how to follow people that don't have a follow button. Lucikly someone else I follow did a writer's workshop post so I was able to find Mama Kat again.

There are lots of good prompts this week. Hard to choose one.
2.) If you could have given yourself a snapshot five years ago of what your life is like now, what would the picture be of and how do you think you would have felt about it?

I would send myself a picture from my wedding. Maybe one with all the bridesmaids and groomsmen in it. My 20 year old self would be happy to know that she was married to the amazing guy she fell in love with. I think she would be shocked to know that her best friend Amy was not her Maid of Honor and was not even a bridesmaid.She would be happy to see her cousins and best friends from high school were her bridesmaids. She wouldn't know who the brunette in the fourth spot was (now my future sister in law). She might be surprised to see none of her college friends as bridesmaids. She might also be surprised that Hubby's best friend at the time was not a groomsmen (Sad that we both lost best friends in 5 years). She would be happy to see that the boys her friends were dating at the time were Hubby's groomsmen. She probably wouldn't be surprised by the Target boys being groomsmen.

She would love the wedding dress I picked out. She would probably wonder where we got married because it is no where she has ever been before. She would probably be surprised that it took 5 years to get married.

What she wouldn't be able to tell from the picture:
That Hubby and her are now living in Southern California and that she is did get her teaching credential but is not teaching. She wouldn't be able to tell that her adorable bunny Blue is still alive and loving the apartment. She wouldn't know that she bought a 2008 Nissan Altima just like she had when she first got her license, silver this time instead of ruby red. She wouldn't be able to see that when she moved to Southern California that she found life long friends that sacrificed a lot to travel and be at her wedding. She wouldn't be able to see the 130 friends and family members that were there. She wouldn't know that those former best friends that weren't in the bridal party weren't at the wedding. That the only college friend there was one she met during her credential program.

She wouldn't know that her cousin J was married to a man that loves her more than she ever expected and is planning to take on the family business. That she would have a house in the same zip code as her parents and two little doggies. She wouldn't know that her other cousin K was married too and that they had made the most precious baby boy (especially since she lost the baby weight in the blink of an eye). She wouldn't know that K lives a few hours from home in a cute house with their silly dog too. She wouldn't know how crazy fun her future sister in law is. She wouldn't know that her friend T was engaged and had a house with her fiance close to home with a terror kitty. She wouldn't know that N was living in SLO (abbreviation for a city in California). She wouldn't know that S was married, living 15 mins from her in Southern California, and preggo (we didn't even know at the wedding)!


  1. This was a fun read, Meagan. I like the concept.

  2. terror kitty?! I know not the point. But I got stuck on that.
