Hi, my name is Alyssa, and I'm short

I know this is going to be the most random post...but I'm sitting at home sick and I have nothing better to do than go through old pictures. As I go through more and more, I'm starting to realize a pattern in the pics...I'm significantly SHORTER than most people in the picture with me. I mean I know I've always been short...I've been 5'1'' and 1/4 since 8th grade and haven't grown a centimeter since...but looking at myself standing next to other people I look AbNoRmAlLy small, like if I didn't know myself I would think I'm a midget. I always thought people were abnormally tall, but I'm starting to realize IT'S ME.
For example:

Halloween pic with some friends

My besties at my wedding. Yes they're wearing heals and I'm wearing flip flops...but still?

Me with my twin brothers who are 5 years younger than me and TOWER over me
(see the one behind me)

At our ward Halloween party

All of Emily's best friends at her wedding...I'm the short one on the end...

I told Owen about my concern...but his response was I'm perfect the way I am. If I was any taller then he probably would not have liked me, ha. So I guess it's okay that I'm short. I think I'm finally going to accept it. Plus, after looking at this picture, we are perfect together...in every single way.


  1. I for one, LOVE you the way you are! You and I have always had that height difference since we were 3! And you and Owen couldn't be anymore perfect for eachother! Your personality matches your "shortness" perfectly, so own it girl!!!!

  2. You are so cute... Allen's are short too.. SOO... guess what.. YOUR boys can wrestle since I am pretty sure the pro basketball player option is out of the picture.. . and YOUR GIRLS... well they will be adorable just like you. I can't wait to see you in a few weeks.

  3. Yeah!! I'm so glad you have a blog!! You two are so cute! We need to get together when you come to visit. Lets do a girls movie or dinner. It's ok to be short! We'll be short twinners! Love ya girl!
