Collections

Growing up, I used to collect a lot of random things. I guess I just went through phases where I thought these things were so cool that I wanted all of them? I don't know. Looking back on it now it is pretty funny the things that I would collect such as Marbles, stickers, baseball cards, stuffed animals, bottle caps, trolls, glass figures... the list goes on depending on how old I was and what my friends and I were in to. One of my most odd collections I think was my Root Beer can collection. When I was in middle school I decided I liked Root Beer so much that I wanted to display all the cans in my room. It is amazing how many different brands of Root Beer there are out there. As you can see in this picture, each one of the cans and bottles are different. Anyway, I was just looking through my old pictures and found this and thought it was funny. Before I decided to throw them all away I got a picture so all my hard work of collecting different cans would not be forgotten. I'm so weird. Now, I hardly drink soda.

So this picture was taken in our Calle Real House? I'm trying to see something familiar....
I remember where they were in your room. Funny but very odd collection item.

I used to work at the temple with Desiree'. Weird how everything intersects, right?

Your decorating tastes have evolved... :) That is so funny! Your blog is inspiring me in so many ways! I totally collected all sorts of things and this makes me want to go through boxes of things and find some of them. I think the weirdest thing I collected was the little pins I would get every time I went to the orthodontist. Nerd! :)
