A Decade of Keri...

With my 30th birthday looming (how is that even possible, I am still 24 right?), I thought it would be fun to show you a decade of me in pictures.  The funny thing is, I am not even sure that Ken knows I had the awful hairstyles that I had in my early twenties. 

AGE 20
My Mama and me.  And yes, I am wearing overalls.  I cannot believe I am posting this picture on the internet.  This is the hairstyle that everyone was jealous of.  My hairstylist used a razor blade to get my hair to flip out.  I used a lot of hairspray!

AGE 21
I obviously liked to experiment with color.  Jeeze Louise.  This was also during the "I want to look older phase."  Wow.

AGE 21 right before turning 22
Thank goodness I lost the red color and went back to blonde.  This is me with my boy Theodore.  He was only a few months old.  This is also the first time that I had longer hair.

AGE 22
With Theodore and Angel.  Wow, I look really young.

AGE 22
With my friend Niki before her wedding.  Now this is starting to look like I am today.  Aw, to be 22 again.

AGE 23
With Theodore again.  He is so handsome.  This was take just a few months before I started dating Ken.  Wow, we have been together for a long time!

AGE 23
One of my first photos with Ken
AGE 24
In Las Vegas for New Years' Eve

AGE 24
Okay, so my friend Jill is probably going to kill me for posting this picture, but it is one of my favorites EVER.  This was at Jill's bachelorette party in 2005.  I will let you come up with your own idea as to why Jill has a pair of underwear on her head. 

AGE 25
Celebrating my birthday in Vegas with Ken.  How sweet was he to have a cake sent up to our room!

AGE 25
Ken and me posing with what is now the basement to our house. 

AGE 26
Ken and me in Puerto Vallarta for my 26th birthday.  Also pictured is our new friend Keith.  I am not liking how dark my hair is here.

 AGE 26
In Puerto Vallarta in 2007.  This was our trip to celebrate Ken moving to Nashville.  Fortunately and unfortunately, he came back six months later since our house would not sell during the whole housing crisis thing.  This photo is where things all started to go downhill for me that night.  I was just too popular in Pi Pi's with the staff and they kept brining me margaritas.  My friend Heather will notice these are the Keri Eyes.

AGE 27
In Florida for Ken's brother's wedding. 

 AGE 27
Posing with our pumpkins.  Truth be told, this is the only year that Ken has officially won our Pumpkin Carving Contest.  He will tell you otherwise.  Mine is the pumpkin on the right, and my pattern ws very hard.  You cannot win them all right?

AGE 28
With the best girlfriends in the world at my bachelorette party.
AGE 28
Just a few hours after becoming a Mrs. 

AGE 29
At Christopher Creek Winery with my handsome husband.  Oh look, there are those braces!  I think I just got a few years younger!
AGE 29
Hiking up Pikes Peak with Ken

AGE 29
My girl and me celebrating Halloween.  Could she be any prettier, geeze.


Wow, I have had a lot of different haircuts, styles, and colors in this last decade!  Thank goodness for the old faith blonde bob!  I have had more fun in the last decade than I ever could have imagined.  I am one lucky girl.

Wow honey- I don't think I've seen the 21st birthday look! I know I love camping and being outdoors, but I have to say the "lumberjack" look doesn't quite do it for me:)

After seing that pic, I don't think I will complain anymore when you buy new clothes.

OMG, these are GREAT! You look the same in every one of them, which is a good thing, you'll still look young even when you are an old ass like myself!
