Sunday Social- Wonder Years

This weekend was supposed to be a relatively quiet in I didn't have a lot scheduled. But, in true Melissa fashion, it ended up being busy. I spent the weekend at my parents weekend home, where my dad and grandma were too. Friday (after I had an amazing day...which I will blog about later this week), we went to a local bar for a drink and to pick up dinner. Saturday, my dad and I did a bunch of errands, went to the beach for what will likely be the last time this year and for dinner we went to our favourite restaurant. I spent the rest of the time preparing for a friends baby shower, which is on Tuesday! I will be sharing the baby shower planning and final outcome over the next couple of weeks. 

Sunday Social
1. What were you like in middle school and high school?
The school system I was a part of didn't have middle school or junior high. In high school, I was...involved. I knew a lot of people, I participated in a TON of co-curricular activities. I did a lot of work representing the school out in the community. I did well academically- honour student- and finished a year early. A lot of staff considered me a "student leader". My guidance counselor described me as "energetic, rarely says no to a request and happy."

2. What were your favorite pastimes?
Between school, co-curricular activities and dance classes, I had very little free time. The city I grew up in, hockey was HUGE, with the local junior team having home games on Sunday night. I loved being in the arena, with friends, watching the games. 
3. What songs were you obsessed with?
Hmm...I don't know if I can remember! I know that I was a Backstreet Boys fan and Britney Spears debuted when I was in grade 9. Dave Matthews Band was a favourite too. I know I haven't listed any songs...just mind is drawing a blank on songs! 
4. What fashion statement do you look backing and cringe?
I went to a Catholic school, so we were in uniforms everyday. On out of uniform days/after school/weekends, it was mostly jeans and shirts. I, luckily, didn't worry about fashion statements or being on trend, so nothing to cringe about. However- and I NEVER wore these- the baby t-shirts...and chokers.
5. Who was your celeb crush? 

Nick Carter, Joshua Jackson, Shane West and Devon Sawa. 
6. What was your favorite movie?
Clueless & Empire Records (yes, before high school, but still...), She's All That, Whatever It Takes, Get Over It, Never Been Kissed...All those teen comedies.


  1. Clueless and Never Been Kissed were a couple of my favorite movies as well. My previous comment disappeared. Not quite sure what happened, but whatevs!!
