HGTV personality, Mina Starsiak Hawk treated her followers to a walk down memory lane this week as she hopped on the "post a picture" Instagram challenge to give Good Bones fans a chance to see more of her life before she chronicled her family's adventures on TV and social media.
Sharing never-before-seen photos from her childhood right up through her time at Indiana University as a young woman, the HGTV star and new author had fans absolutely delighted with the pictures she chose to share, some even including mom Karen Laine. The Two Chicks & a Hammer co-founder saved her throwback photos to a highlight on her Instagram account, but keep scrolling for some of the most hilarious and adorable photos from her past.
Starting off in her younger years, Starsiak Hawk gave a sweet peek at her and her husband Steve Hawk's baby pictures. Rocking red specs, baby Mina looks skeptically at the camera in her photo, while Steve held up one finger for the photographer while rocking a blond bowl cut at a slightly older age.prevnext

Taking us all the way back to middle school, Starsiak Hawk joked she had "literally nothing" she could even say about this photo, which looks like it could have been taken on the first day back to school. Rocking a blue spaghetti strap dress and white slides, the HGTV personality asked if anyone else remembered the classic '90s and 2000s' store dELiA*s.prevnext
While Starsiak Hawk "reeeaaaally had to dig" for a shot of herself in high school, she eventually found one to share with her curious followers. Laughing in the candid shot, the mother-of-two rocks a white cardigan buttoned in the middle over a camisole, paired with a black choker and pendant necklace in what would have been quite the trendy outfit.prevnext
Starsiak Hawk even showed off her wilder side in this snap from her college days. While celebrating her 21st birthday, the star recalled doing 21-plus shots and "didn't puke," joking she "[lived] to tell the tale." She did, however, get "kicked out" of the bar for "harassing the door man," she added.prev
