Where were you the Summer of 2007? Can you believe that was ten years ago? Maybe your whole life has changed since then. Or maybe not.
Ten years ago I had a baby and a four-year-old. My daughter was in that baby sweet spot, too. I’m talking about ages 6-9 months where a baby can sit up, but stays where you plop her because she can’t yet crawl or walk.
In the Summer of 2007, I had a cell phone, but I definitely didn’t have a smart phone. The first iPhone was actually released during the Summer of 2007. Fancy that!
I wasn’t on Facebook. Or any social media.
I hadn’t started my blog, but I was only 1 year away from doing that on Blogger.
My Grandma died in the Summer of 2007. I miss her and wish my kids had gotten the chance to know her. She was one cool lady.
I worked at the same job at which I work today.
My husband is still the same man I was married to ten years ago (ha!)
“Hey There Delilah” by the Plain White T’s and “Umbrella” by Rihanna were the big songs of the summer.
Ten years ago, boot cut pants were the norm. I sort of miss boot cut everything, compared to skinny everything nowadays.
But I do NOT miss those ultra low rise pants (think Paris Hilton) that showed your pelvic bones (!).
The big pop culture story of the Summer of 2007 was the release of the 7th Harry Potter book. Since I hadn’t read the previous six books, and I had a baby and a preschooler, I didn’t care. I had no idea this was the big pop culture story of the Summer of 2007 until I Googled “Pop culture moments of 2007“.
And for more pop culture memories, how about these? In 2007, Bob Barker retired. Jordin Sparks won American Idol. Mad Men and Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered.
