Look Alikes?

So I always thought it was funny how many people take it upon them selves to tell me, "You look just like...." This is dedicated to them...

This is the best one - so I'm putting it first. This is my best friend Stephanie from high school - I'm not sure why, but people used to get us mixed up all the time - I WISH I looked like her ;) I love this girl to pieces :)

We were at Matt's ward last Sunday and a sweet lady from his ward was POSITIVE that I was on the front of the Utah brides magazine - she even said she took our picture from our thank you card and compared it and it was me for sure... I knew it wasn't me... and Matt just wanted compensation ;) haha So I had to find out what my "look alike" looked like.

These situations can actually be quite embarrassing at times. Last year when I was buying a manual for LDS institute the sweet lady at the office took the liberty of not only telling that I look like Reese Witherspoon - which is crazy, but saying to everyone else in the office, "Hey look everyone it's Reese Witherspoon right here in our office!" ... I of course went bright red and felt really awkward as everyone took the opportunity to stare at me.

Some lady in the office at my high school told me I looked like Nicole Kidman - then I went home and cried myself to sleep... haha not really, but almost.

This happened more when I was younger, but yes I was told that I looked like them... what a disgrace. haha
Sorry, this isn't the best picture, but I have also had a few people tell me that I look like the "girl from Charlie" or the "girl from the billboard on 72nd south." (There was a billboard by my house in Salt Lake for Utah Brides.com)

Well I hope this post gives you a laugh - and next time you think about telling someone, "You look JUST like..." Make sure it's a compliment ;) haha

I know just how you feel. I've been mistaken for Kelly Clarkson a numerous amount of times as well as Julia Stiles. Also, a friend in college swore I had a twin around campus, though I never saw her.

Its always the best when they tell you you look like someone you don't know, then you go home and look them up and they are completely ugly/scary/both! At least all the ones you look like are pretty--even if nicole kidman is a little freaky she's not a troll. It's the beautiful blond hair. Does you in.

Well I think Nicole Kidman is very beautiful. MK and Ash though - they have gone downhill.
And you, my dear, are also very beautiful. :-)

You totally look like the girl on that bride magazine. The resemblance is uncanny! P.S. We really need to do something one of these days. It has been far too long.
