Way Back Wednesday: Timehopping back to last year

I got a new-to-me, super fun app a few months ago and want to tell everyone about it.

The Timehop app lets you look back at your Facebook and Twitter posts from last year with it. It’s fun to look back and see what you were doing on that day last year and think of how far you’ve come in a year, so I decided to share a few recent Timehop posts with you guys:

Clay is still making delicious meals. Glad my husband can cook, since I can’t!


My husband went to 5 different Memorial Day barbeques with his last company, and he won door prizes at 3 of them. A few weeks ago, Clay went to Member Appreciation Night at our gym and he won some protein supplement as well as a free massage. He’s still winning door prizes!


I love 90s movies like Clueless. It was one of my favorites growing up… no surprise! I also loved the TV show too even though the characters/actors were different.


I really miss coaching  track and cross country. I hope I’m able to coach again one day, it was a big part of my life last Spring and really helped me grow as a runner and person. I wish we had a team over here in West Ashley.


Clay started his computer programming job one year ago! I can’t believe he’s been working there for a year because it seems like just yesterday we were out buying him new work clothes because they have a “business casual” dress code there. Yay for Clay sticking with his job for a year!


Hair dye boxes have never been completely honest…


How funny… I’ve since run 3 timed half marathons and broke 2 hours in all of them. I also ran two untimed “fun run” half marathons- the New Year’s Day half marathon and the May Day half marathon. I even ran both of those in around 2 hours.

I saw this post a few days ago as I was debating my decision to pursue a full marathon, and it gave me hope that sometimes our dreams really can come true with hard work and amazing running friends on your side.


I had FOUR goodbye dinners the week before I moved to Charleston. I loved going out to lunch with all my coworkers, and I guess those lunches make up for all the birthday lunches I’ve missed this past year since I work from home now.


I currently have my race bibs on a little ring, hanging above my desk, along with two awards/plaques from recent races. It wouldn’t be my office without the running race bibs.


I don’t know who said it was a 4 pack, but mine is just… a tummy. I laid out for an hour Sunday afternoon, so I am rockin’ a few tan lines a year later.

  1. Cool app! I’m always embarrassed when I look back at old things I’ve written haha.

  2. Ok-that is seriously funny Clay won a big prize from a company he was leaving! I hope the boo-ing was in fun! I think you should do a full marathon, but wait until it is cool in the south 🙂

      Well… it’s never very cool in the South. Here, you can run in shorts year-round (seriously I own one pair of running pants and wore them twice last year). Weather is unpredictable and we can get heat waves in January, even.

      But eventually you get used to it… and you just run in the heat :). Kinda like those who run in the snow. Just gotta do it.

  3. This is cool Lauren! 🙂 I have to agree with Hair Dye Boxes. They don’t give the right color on me. My hair is really dark brown, and it just doesn’t turn the way it should be.
    And wow, your hubby was born lucky. I never win anything in raffles or contest.

    • Amy Lauren says:

      Yeah, it’s weird for anyone with very dark or very light hair to have success with hair dye.

      My husband is the luckiest person I know. Not just with contests… but he’s got ME!

    This is a cool app! I remember I dyed my roommates hair in college and it turned out jet black when it was supposed to be like a medium ash brown. UGH. I felt like such an asshole because I was the one who did it for her!

    • Amy Lauren says:

      It’s crazy how hair dye works. I dyed mine a red shade once, and it seems like every other time I dyed it, there were still hints of red. Like it never completely faded… or either I have more red in my hair than I remember (I’ve forgotten what color it naturally is by now…)

  6. what a fun app! Hopefully for my bday Ill get a fancy phone haha

  7. wow! Cool App! I can’t imagine what all mine says! I’ll have to try it out 🙂

  8. runwkate says:

    It’s nice to look back – especially when things are going well in the present! I dare you to go start your own cross country group. You would be awesome at that.

    And – oh my goodness. Full marathon?! Do it!!

    I love this! Thanks for taking us down memory lane with you. 🙂 I’m definitely going to check out this app!
