Retiring a part of my past..

A lot of things have been changing for me lately.  I've gone through and cleaned out a ton of my old clothes (I've done this in the past, just not to the extent I did this time!), I changed my outward appearance (more on that soon), and I've retired a part of my past.  For the past 5 years, I've been driving my little Grand Am around as OMG MALP.  For those of you who don't know, for the past 8+ years, I have been very good friends with another Mallory!  During high school, we became known as Mal P and Mal M.  We were pretty much always together (a lot of the same classes!), so our friends had to have some way to make it known who they were talking to!  To this day, when I see some friends from high school, they still call me Mal P!  When trying to come up with a license plate idea for my car, the MALP part was easy, and I still cannot remember why I decided to put the OMG in front of it, haha.  Wouldn't just MALP have been fine? haha, who knows! 

Also, if you know me, you know my favorite athlete/swimmer is Michael Phelps.  To only say he is my favorite is an understatement.  You're talking to someone who has all three of his books, every newspaper clipping of an article about him, pictures from the newspapers, all the cereal boxes he's on, a Rice Krispie Treat box he's on, and the Sports Illustrated magazine he's on the cover of.  And not to forget the Michael Phelps collage I made, framed and hung up in my room, the framed calendar I have hanging up, my "Don't wake me I'm dreaming of Michael Phelps" pillowcase, my senior picture with all of my Michael Phelps stuff, and the personalized license plate my parents got me for Christmas one year: FLPS GRL.  So, it was only fitting that I had this license plate frame to show my support for my favorite athlete.  Yes, I got tired of people ragging on him during the 2012 Olympics, but he did not disappoint me one bit.  [Side note: I actually have an unfinished blog post about that topic, haha]  So, since my favorite athlete has retired, it was only fitting to retire this license plate frame, as well.  It is quite sad to change something that's been the same for so many years (why am I acting like this is so sad?! It's just a license plate & frame!! haha), but it was time for a change.

 So, if you've been on the road and happened to end up behind me, this was your view...
To see the new view, well, I guess you'll just have to hope you happen to end up behind me again! 
My little Grand Am's new identity displays two things that I love more than anything!

Note to self: find another word besides "so" to begin my sentences.  I seriously overuse the word!

my guess for the new lic plates has something to do with being married and I close?
