Being home for Christmas means sleeping in my childhood room which means going through all the stuff I've accumulated over the past 19 years.
  1. This fish hook
    6544c9d2 9493 4cd5 b5c0 fc9d908221dd
    That was removed from my shin when I was five after my sister got a line caught around her foot and drove the hook into my shin. I was a major drama queen about the whole event but it also really hurt and I was five.
  2. My teeth
    Aa19c9c4 ffea 4ec1 aaa6 2e84fde394ee
    The two teeth I had pulled so that I could get braces. I think I was 10 or 11 and I know I screamed like hell when they put the numbing shots in my gums. There in really good shape for having not been brushed in nine years.
  3. Four different retainers
    3f8639b5 17b8 4e8b 8262 5e63eb4efc42
    I've had six retainers in my lifetime and I've hated every single one of them. I also hated my orthodontist who didn't like me because I never wore my retainer. Looking back though it was kind of a stupid move to give a retainer to a third grader and then be surprised when they didn't wear it.
  4. This seal(?)
    F2ea33fe 8b79 44ef 8d16 abfe7302df0a
    My sculpture skills really peaked in the first grade. I'm pretty sure I have it because my mom didn't want another clay blob being called an animal.
  5. My hair
    D2b7dd3b 47e2 4a04 bc4b e1300e36fcdb
    I got the string art thing added in Florida when I was six. There's a tiny charm with a lizard on it on the end that I used to chew on, it still has the teeth marks on it.
  6. These handcuffs
    B4aae8be fa58 43c1 9f94 7543d2d55570
    They're real, police issued handcuffs that were given to me by my mom's friend who is a cop. I don't remember why he gave them to me but I have them. I also have the key taped to the inside of my dresser because they cannot be unlocked with a bobby pin and I've gotten stuck in the before.
  7. This fake lighter that's actually a camera
    Bb980c3b 9b7f 4417 8e88 a5dfded23c89
    I've never been able to make it work correctly but it's a mega cool concept.
  8. The word BABE
    2fafb69a 03c4 4a96 9601 004b2d269180
    I love the word babe and I say it all the time so I bought these in a Hobby Lobby in Georgia last summer. It really speaks to me.
  9. This
    9b753bc6 b8b3 40c2 bef7 d9f428683077
    Purchased at a Goodwill in North Carolina about 10 years ago. I have no idea why I bought it but I know I made my aunt wait while I went back into the store to buy it for 79 cents. Please let me know if it's a very valuable collectible.
  10. And this plaque depicting the story of Stonehenge
    6dc52bdc f25e 4ff6 a82c b5aa93f4a15c
    This is my sister's and it's very informative. I have absolutely no idea why she bought it.
