Oh Mickey you're so fine...'re so fine you blow my mind. Hey Mickey! Hey, hey, hey Mickey!

I've got a little Flashback Friday for y'all! While playing on my parent's computer Monday morning, I found a few gems. I mean these pictures are totally legit. Let's take a blast to the past and see why I was destine to be a cheerleader. I mean, let's be honest, I have cheerleader written all over me!

Circa 1993/4 - I mean just check out that pose!

1998 - Believe it or not, I'm in 6th grade here. I look like such a little babe!

1999 - 7th grade cheer pics for Victory Vipers Junior Elite!

2002 - JV Cheer for Austin High School {We couldn't try out for cheer as freshmen and sophomores could only be on JV!}

Circa 2003 - Either my sophomore or my junior year with high school cheer {we were a competitive team!} Emily did Vipers for a year! Yup, that's my baby sister! We look much more alike now.

2003 - Junior year cheer pics!

2005 - Senior UCA Nationals at Disney World! Because 4 Amy's is better than 1 :)

2005 - Senior year cheer pics! This one may be one of my favorite pictures of me from high school. Sadly, I look exactly the same except with shorter hair now!

2007 - Sophomore year of college United Cheer Nationals. Yes, Texas A&M has a competitive cheerleading squad!

After the picture above, I "retired" from cheer. I continued tumbling...I can still do a back handspring and a roundoff back tuck! I just switched for doing to teaching! I taught preschool and beginner gymnastics at a local gym through the rest of college. I also drove an old school bus to preschools and taught them on the bus! Seriously though...I'm not kidding. I wish I could find my picture proof!

I'm pretty sure a little bit of cheerleader still lives within me. Okay, more than a little. Maybe I'll help coach again one day...maybe :)

Have you ever been a cheerleader?
What sports did you love growing up?

  1. I was never a cheerleader and actually the only sport I participated in was volley ball - very briefly. I was more of a GEEK lol BUT a stroll down memory lane is always a good time - and I did support the football team at the games. Now I am a cheerleader on the sideline when my boys play football in the midget league. Stopping by from FBF at Chasing Joy

  2. I have no cheerleading ability but Mickey was my jam. I had a tape and would play it over and over and over on my tiny tape player with the crappy microphone attached to it, haha!


I love hearing from you, so leave a little note :)
