The Awkward Blogger Contest Reveal!

I can’t believe we have a winner but we do! Thanks again for letting us have a humiliating time showing you all our best awkward photos from the “awkward years.” It was quite painful. No joke.

Did you guess who I was? I can’t believe I am posting this picture even LARGER, but in case you didn’t know I was B.

See the resemblance? Me either. Gosh that is seriously painful to look at. And did you know that my mom actually text me and said she had to look at the big photo collage 3 times before she “recognized” me? What the hay??! Hahaha.

Moving on. Forever from that picture hopefully.

There were so many of you who were soooooo close to guessing all the DIY bloggers correctly, but finally one person…one blogger…one true DIY fan rose to claim victory!

Please meet the winner of the Before They Were Bloggers Contest:

Sara from Mom Endeavors

This girl knows her DIY blogs because she’s a blogger herself. Please take a minute to congratulate Sara by leaving her a comment on her blog today. She spent a lot of time holding a sick little baby yesterday and clicking back and forth to the different blogs to match all 29 faces with their blogs (she’s quite the multi-tasker isn’t she.)

Did you do good in your match ups? Check out each blog because most of them will be posting a side by side photo of themselves. Feel free to laugh a little more.

It will be back to reality and decorating tomorrow I promise. No more baggy white turtlenecks for me.

  1. Well, there is a big difference between now and then! Well-done to the winner….She really deserves that.

  2. I see a resemblance, no need to be ashamed of what you looked like as a kid! You were not as gorgeous as you are now, but wouldn’t you rather have it that way thanthe other way around? :). Your pic is cute enough so don’t fret! That girl helped you become who you are today, don’t forget to love her :)

  3. Aw, you’re gorgeous! This contest was SO fun! Thanks for putting yourself out there and for participating in the fun! It was brutally hard, but SO fun to win!! :)

    Aww, even back then you were cute! But I agree, you are more beautiful now! I see where your babies get their pretty eyes from!

  5. These photos are all AMAZING!
