Facebook Stalkers

in All Posts

My mom and I spent the morning looking up her ex-boyfriends from her 20’s to 40’s on Facebook.   She dragged out her old photo albums so we could compare the men of the past to the men of today.  She spent a lot of time screaming hysterically and running around in circles in the kitchen.  The idea that we could find her ex from 1972 AND find his wife AND see his children on Facebook kind of blew her mind.   What can I say – we’re Facebook stalkers.


My mom at 29:




Breakfast eaten while stalking people via Facebook:


In the oatmeal bowl:


  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 banana
  • Toppings: almonds, flax, silver of pumpkin roll, maple syrup


Pumpkin roll is the ultimate oatmeal topping.  Word.



Off to the dog park!

    My mom and I did this all the time when she first got on Facebook… she thought it was hilarious!

    Your mama is gorgeous, by the way 🙂

  • Jessica @ Jessica Balances October 24, 2010, 10:15 am

    How fun!!! Facebook stalking can be so addicting… I try to avoid it, but sometimes it’s absolutely necessary. Especially when your mama’s ex-bfs are involved! 🙂 she is gorgeous, too.

    what a hoot!

  • Kiran October 24, 2010, 10:20 am

    Oh wow! Didn’t knew Facebook went wayyyy back! Your mom is so gorgeous 🙂

  • Kaitlyn (College Girl Runs) October 24, 2010, 10:27 am

    I love facebook stalking! Now that I’m in college, its crazy looking at people from high school…so I can’t imagine how it would be for your mom! How fun! lol

  • Wei-Wei October 24, 2010, 10:39 am

    I think that everyone’s going to say “Facebook stalking is so creepy” but I think we all do it. Heh. 😀

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) October 24, 2010, 10:39 am

    You look so much like your mom and yes, she is adorable! It is so weird to be able to see people from your past like that. Enjoy your day Caitlin!

  • eatmovelove October 24, 2010, 10:48 am

    Your mom is hot! Yes, Facebook is slightly unnerving at times…

  • Maddie October 24, 2010, 11:08 am

    Hahaha! My dad did the same thing when he first got a facebook. I facebook stalk at times too. Sometimes it just needs to be done. Have fun at the dog park!

  • Amber K October 24, 2010, 11:11 am

    How funny! I don’t have any exes (my husband was my first boyfriend….aww, lol) but I do tend to “stalk” random people whom I know but not well enough to be friends with.

    Like friends of my friends who post interesting comments on their posts and what not.

    Wait…should I admit that? 😉

  • Diana at Diana tries a Tri October 24, 2010, 11:17 am

    Oh my you and your Mom look so much alike! Both beautiful. A good facebook stalk is just needed sometimes!

  • Liz @ Tip Top Shape October 24, 2010, 11:23 am

    My friend and I are the WORST fb stalkers. One time we actually had a skype date where all we did was look on fb and see which of our high school counterparts had gained the most drinking weight. We really do fb stalk too much. Sometimes I feel guilty about it…but then I remember that everyone else is doing the same thing, lol.

  • holly @ couchpotatoathlete October 24, 2010, 11:27 am

    Oh man, I need to have my mom over to look up her old boyfriends. What a riot! It is scary how much of a person’s life you can see on facebook, especially if they don’t have many privacy settings set up.

  • Katy October 24, 2010, 11:36 am

    I used to be a BIG Facebook stalker. Now I do it from time to time (to see how different people from high school are!)

  • Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine October 24, 2010, 11:37 am

    Haha, I love that you and your mom bonded over that. My mom met my dad at 18, so know the only guy she ever seriously dated preeeeeety well 🙂 Hope you have a great day together!!

  • Bridget October 24, 2010, 11:42 am

    Woah! Your mom is smokin’! I love looking at old pictures of my parents cause it’s funny to see the different clothes and crazy hair do’s. Why my dad ever had what resembled a mullet i will never know….lol

  • Muna October 24, 2010, 11:43 am

    I’m a big facebook stalker too! I got so good at it, it scares me sometimes 😀

    Your mom is gorgeous!

  • Lauren October 24, 2010, 11:49 am

    Haha!! My Mom does this too whenever I show her stuff on facebook! ;P

  • monicanelsonfitness October 24, 2010, 11:55 am

    Wow, “Hot Mom Alert!!”

    This is hilarious! It is like my mom and I one did a “drive-by” spy on ono of her dates. 🙂 He was not even home is the funny thing and then we got ice cream and laughed for about 1 hour. 🙂

    Have fun at the dog park!

  • Liz @ Blog is the New Black October 24, 2010, 12:02 pm

    I think that’s hilarious!!! Good job. 😉

  • Camille October 24, 2010, 12:04 pm

    Your Mom is gorgeous!
    You guys have the same smile 🙂

  • Christie {Honoring Health} October 24, 2010, 12:09 pm

    You look just like your mom!!

  • Katherine @ Left Coast Contessa October 24, 2010, 12:10 pm

    oh facebook stalking… so entertaining! Glad you’re having a good time with your Mom!

  • Coco October 24, 2010, 12:10 pm

    My mom and I are the ultimate stalkers. Actually, my mother is more facebook savvy than I am–and she’s 54, and I’m 22! haha

  • Claire (Low Impact Fashionista) October 24, 2010, 12:11 pm

    Haha that is too good that you facebook creeped with your mom! Love it!

  • adriana October 24, 2010, 12:33 pm

    your mom is so gorgeous!

  • Tabitha (From Single to Married) October 24, 2010, 12:40 pm

    You look just like your mom – you’re both beautiful. 🙂

    I do some Facebook stalking too, it’s so fun to find people from the past just to see what they’re doing (and if they look older – ha!).

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin October 24, 2010, 12:49 pm

    Haha you and your mom are hilarious! It must have been so funny for you to see all the guys she dated. Some of the pictures of my mom’s ex-boyfriends from the ’70s are major LOL-worthy. 😀

  • grocery goddess jen October 24, 2010, 12:51 pm

    I have totally helped my mom find people from the past – but not all of them are on facebook, so the stalking was kept to a minimum:) Your mom was/is beautiful!

  • Jasmine @ Eat Move Write October 24, 2010, 1:15 pm

    This post made me actually laugh out loud. The thought of her running around in the kitchen in hilarious. :p

    You look just like her – holy cow!

  • Christine October 24, 2010, 1:17 pm

    I love that you admit to facebook stalking 🙂
    Your breakfast looks delicious. I’m a little behind, but I think I’ll be having some oats and pumpkin this afternoon.

  • Teresa @ Teresa Tastes & Travels October 24, 2010, 1:23 pm

    Your mom looks like a movie star!

  • Jessica@tastyandtrim October 24, 2010, 1:31 pm

    Love it! haha that sounds like my mom and I! She will sit on Facebook and show me all of her old friends and boyfriends from high school! Have a great day 🙂

  • Kate @ Walking in the Rain October 24, 2010, 1:33 pm

    Yesterday my husband and I Google stalked the people who live next to the house we just bought just to see what our new new neighbors are like. So internet stalking is a fun way to spend a weekend! 😀

  • Kjirsten- Balanced Healthy Life October 24, 2010, 1:56 pm

    That’s great, Facebook stalking with the Mother! : ) Have fun at the dog park!

  • Melissa October 24, 2010, 2:48 pm

    Yes, I sometimes feel like a stalker on facebook also. I had the same breakfast minus the pumpkin roll but that sure sounds like a good addition.

  • Lesley October 24, 2010, 3:07 pm

    I see it’s been said already, but seriously, your mom is gorgeous. She looks great now too!

    • Caitlin October 24, 2010, 5:12 pm


  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss October 24, 2010, 3:08 pm

    Your mom was gorgeous!!! Althoguh I’m sure she still is. 🙂

    I feel weird FB “stalking” although I’ve done it a few times..nothing actually stalkerish, though. Just seeing how they’ve been or whatever.

  • Hope October 24, 2010, 3:11 pm

    Lol this is so cute! My mum was the same when I first joined her up! She couldn’t believe how many ex boyfriends she could find! I couldn’t believe how many she had to find!! Lol

  • Dee October 24, 2010, 3:16 pm

    Your mom is gorgeous!! Your breakfast looks amazing!

  • Annie@stronghealthyfit October 24, 2010, 3:33 pm

    That’s hilarious. Your oatmeal looks amazing!

  • Shrinking mommy of 2 October 24, 2010, 3:43 pm

    We did that too…I also had my ex boyfriend as a friend…but now took him off. It is fun to see how friends look today. Some have aged nicely and some, well let’s just say not so nicely. hehe

  • Candice October 24, 2010, 3:43 pm

    This is hilarious!

    Two years ago my mom actually married the guy she had dated in 1975. She hadn’t seen him or heard from him in 30 years and then suddenly one day he called her up (through my grandparents actually) out of the blue. Two months later they got married!

    Glad you and your mom are having a good time:)

    • Caitlin October 24, 2010, 5:11 pm

      That’s really cute 🙂

  • Natalia - a side of simple October 24, 2010, 4:02 pm

    DEFAULT! That picture of your mom totally screams it 🙂

  • sarah k. @ the pajama chef October 24, 2010, 4:05 pm

    facebook stalking… classic! 🙂

  • Leah @ Why Deprive? October 24, 2010, 4:27 pm

    hahahaha I LOVE it!!

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) October 24, 2010, 5:07 pm

    hehe what a fun morning!!!

  • Lacey @ Lake Life October 24, 2010, 6:46 pm

    Facebook stalking is a great way to hush the “what if’s” about exes. Usually you realize you ended up better off 🙂

  • Nicole October 24, 2010, 7:02 pm

    That is so funny! Technology is amazing isn’t it?
    And DAMN your mom was a hottie! Look at her in that hot halter top showing off her stuff!!! 😉

  • Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) October 24, 2010, 7:13 pm

    Haha…oh, facebook. It’s amazing, the things you can find. I love looking up people who I haven’t seen or heard from in forever. 😀

    Your oats look fab! 😀

  • carlee October 24, 2010, 7:31 pm

    Thats awesome! I’m a facebook stalker as well. Arnt we all?
    and Im lovin the oats! I actually bought a slice of a pumpkin roll at my bakery yesterday. IDEA! ha. might have to try your little oatmeal topping.

  • Karen :0) October 24, 2010, 9:02 pm

    How funny about you and your mom! Love the Facebook stalking! Breakfast sounds yummy, too! :0)

  • Katie @ Healthy Heddleston October 24, 2010, 10:53 pm

    oh my gosh that is so fun!

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) October 25, 2010, 1:15 am

  • Kate @ Ordinary Girl, Extraordinary Journey October 25, 2010, 1:49 am

    This oatmeal looks fab! And so does your mom! I love that y’all are facebook stalking her old bfs!!hahaha

  • Andrea October 25, 2010, 8:32 am

    Ah The Reason I took so long to get on Facebook and why I have as many privacy/security settings I can get! 🙂 My new SIL was trying to find me to “friend” me and she seriously could not find me. My brother (who is not on FB) thought that was hysterical! Obviously the settings are working.

  • Sara October 25, 2010, 8:57 pm

    Wow that’s awesome! As someone that doesn’t put much on Facebook, I love that everyone else does so that I can stalk them!#! ;P
