a walk down memory lane

Since my parents sold their home, naturally I had to bring all of my childhood things back to Texas with me. As I was going through all my things getting rid of things and deciding where to put everything I came across an old diary. The only diary I've ever kept until I started blogging :)

Let me tell you it is hilarious and definitely something I'll keep forever!

First off, you should know that my hubby (Dave aka David in the entries) and I have known each other since we were 10. We went to school together and "dated" in middle school (if you can call that dating).

Even though I know this will be extremely embarrassing I've decided to share some of my journal entries. You lucky ducks! :)

Note: this diary was kept between the years of 1997-2000. Which put me in fourth grade through eighth grade? I think..

The diary.. Yes it says "Stay out, says Taz" on it.. Don't judge!!

October 31, 1998
Today was Halloween and I was a hippy. I got a lot of candy. Tomorrow is Sunday. Well the next holiday is Thanksgiving, can't wait. My mom's b-day is in 19 days. She will be 41. She's getting old like my dad. Well I don't have very much to say. I still really really really like David. On Wednessday we are going to the park for an Egyptian thing. Well bye, Denise
P.s. I like David M :)

May 22, 1999
Today is Terri's track championship. Right now I am listening to Shania Twain. She rocks! I don't love David anymore, he is a little butthole! I love someone named Trevor. he is one fine guy! Tomorrow is Terri's birthday, she will be 18. I will be in 7th grade next year. Well the house is for sale. We will be living in Shadow Mountain. It sucks because I'll go to Snow Canyon.
P.s. I love Trevor now

November 22, 1999
I haven't writen in here for a long time! My mom's b-day was a couple days ago. S.C.M.S. was on fire a couple weeks ago. I think I like David again and Sydney likes Jeremy. He is kind of ugly and way short. Mom and Dad have the flu. It sucks. I don't know what I should name my bird. I am in the talent show and I am singing I Will Be There by Britney Spears. I love her song Crazy, it is so cool.

I must be stupid or something cuz I'm going out with David again! But I like going out with him cuz he is so nice.

Get the picture??
Ok so I was a little very boy crazy and a little random. That's what 10 year old girls are like! I read the entire diary in one sitting and it was cracking me up. Dave read it too and now thinks I'm a psycho.. I don't blame him.. Ha! But in all fairness he let me read his diary from when he was 16.. It was interesting! Anyways my wish throughout the diary was that someday I'll marry David, the man of my dreams. Who would have thought that 10 years later I would be married to him!!
Match made in Heaven :)

Us now.


  1. awww how sweet! I just love reading old diary entries, they are hilarious especially when they were from when you were quite younger. The things little us would say :) What part of Texas are you in?

  2. Awh! I love taking trips down memory lane! :) You guys were so cute, and of course still are now!

    Love it!


  3. I always love walks down memory lane. They make me nostalgic for a simpler time. ;)

  4. I loved this! I have no idea if any of my diaries are still around, but I wrote about boys all the time too!! You guys are too cute!

  5. Hahaha. This is hilarious! The things our little girl minds came up with :) too bad you never moved to shadow mountain! It was such a fun area to live in!

  6. Haha I LOVE this post! I wish I would have kept all of the THOUSANDS of notes we wrote back and forth to each throughout school because those were hilarious! Before I threw them away (which was after I got married) I read them all and I was literally crying from laughter for hours! I especially loved the ones where we wanted it to be super long so we started writing song lyrics and the most random nonsense we could think of. We were nerds!

  7. I love this!
    so sweet :)
    I definitely need to go through all my diary entries.

  8. aw blast from the past posts are the best! :):) great blog! come check mine out some time :D

  9. I LOVE THIS! Made me laugh so hard because I recently found my old notebooks with "STAY OUT" and "DON'T READ" all over.. as if that would keep someone from reading. I was boy crazy too and "going out" with a new boy every entry.. must just be a girl thing lol!

  10. TOO CUTE! Pretty cool you two have known eachother for so long :)

  11. Hahaha! This is the cutest!


Thanks for making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!! :)
