Flashback Friday

Every time I participate in a Flashback Friday, I find myself singing, "Let's do the time warp again". Haha! 
This week I'm looking back on something special in my life: Baton Twirling (nope not kidding). 
It all started when I was in the 5th grade. I really wanted to be one of those girls in the cute outfit. So I started taking classes, joined a competition team and became a majorette. I twirled all through out middle school, high school and in college. I loved every single minute of it!
Senior Year in H.S.
My 2nd College Year: Marshall Stadium
My 1st year in college GMAC Bowl

That is so cool! I'm always impressed by them at football games!

I was a twirler as well but I quit lol. But my brother was actually a pretty famous CA twirler and he even won 3 world championships titles when he was 8 years old.... But he quit before he went to mddle school.

You look good:) I am jealous of the fact you twirled in college:) I always wanted to do that. Seemed like it would be a ton of fun. Did you ever do competitions like nationals? Or was it mainly parades and football games?

Awwww... HHS & Marshall Band was like the best time of my life! I wish I could go back to that time just for marching band again!

Good idea on the flashback Friday! I may have to make my own!

I definitely love the outfits! My sister and I went to one baton twirling class and quit after that haha. We tried everything but ended up sticking with gymnastics.

I used to love baton twirling but unfortunately never got to compete as the group I was part of only did dance shows at fetes and things like that. I'm still holding onto the dream that one day my health will be good enough that I can run my own baton twirling troupe - that would be totally awesome.

That looks like so much fun! I wish I could do something like that, but I so lack the coordination needed

Ashley said...

Oh this is sooo funny! I am loving looking at all these flashback Friday pictures of people. Yours are so fun! We never had baton twirlers at our school when I was younger but it looked like it was a lot of fun from your pictures! I am going to have go dig out some old pictures so I can do this next time! :)

My mom twirled through middle school and high school and loved it. She can still twirl. ;)
Must be nice to be that coordinated, Jen. Ha
