This #throwbackthursday is a little abnormal.
Let me first take you back to 5th grade where I entered the state-wide Farm Bureau talent competition in Myrtle Beach. I won my county and advanced onto this competition.
I had this sweet painted rainbow in the background, Kermit sitting on top, and an awesome homemade rainbow dress made jsut for me by our seamstress. I still remember mom and me going to pick out the fabric in Orangeburg (is that store still even open by the bowling alley???).
I won 1st place in my division singing The Rainbow Connection from the Muppet Movie. I won a trophy and $100 and it was the best.day.ever. Except my microphone wouldn't cut on and I got really anxious and almost walked off of stage. But didn't. Happy Day!
Sorry that I don't have any pictures from this special day OR the video (Tyler isn't allowed to watch it yet).
Monday when I was getting my nails done (before the dog drama), this song came on the salon's awesome Pandora station that originally sounded like a break-up playlist. I had never heard the Jason Mraz version but ultimately fell in love and made my pedicure THAT much better.
Enjoy. I'll be reminiscing about 5th grade in the dirty Myrtle.
