The Awkward Tween Challenge: LiLa vs. L'Adele

As some of you may or may not have noticed, we recently updated our Twitter profile picture to THIS: 

Thanks to Stacey, we have an entire flash drive FULL of awkward childhood pics and we're not afraid to use it. Our goal in this instance was to find one of the most awkward and humiliating and post it for public consumption. Please note the virgin brows, matching letter jackets and most tragic of all, Lisa's clear braces and mock turtleneck with tiny little leaves painted on.

Adele Griffin (who may or may not be a long lost Roecker christened L'Adele) claimed on Twitter that she could out awkward us with THIS:

So...the real question is: 

Who was the most awkward Tween?

And for the record, we have PLENTY of awkward in our archives and we'd love to make this a regular feature. SO...if you have a childhood pic that you think can outawkward LiLa send your picture here . We'll feature you on the blog and let the readers decide.

Hahaha! I love awkward photos. I have pics where my hair looks triangle-y too!

Good times, good times.

Lisa and Laura said...

I'd also like to point out that the black strap across my chest is a purse. It's probably filled with batteries to make it heavy and important-feeling.


Matthew MacNish said...

I love that Laura has to sign her comment, since we all know Lisa does all the work around here.

And I'm sorry Adele, but you look really pretty in that photo. Yes, Santa's lap makes it a little awkward, but not as much as the LiLa photo.

Is that a tiara on Lisa's heaad. or just a trick of the light?

The second pic makes me think of Empty Nesters.

And don't worry, I have some winning photos to send you as soon as I upload them.

Ack! Not the virgin brows! :D

I think I had virgin brows until my wedding day (at age 21). Not kidding. I remember asking my sister to "fix them" for me because I had no idea how to do it.

I honestly have no idea which one to pick. Sadly, I have been staring at the two photos for like five minutes. And I still can't decide. But I bet I could totally outawkward this.

*runs away to rummage in old photos*

I have given most of this day over to scavenging for the shot in of myself in a WHAM! shirt and artichoke hair and I know I will find it. And then I will claim victory for all of 2011.

LiLa, you two remind me of myself so gotta vote for you two. Gah, I was so awkward. Don't know if I have any teen photos on my computer though. Trust me, that's a good thing. I would definitely win.

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
