Flashback Friday


I've decided for these Flashback Fridays to scan in all some of my old photos starting with my childhood and working my way up through my kids.

Me...through the years...

Rock'n that baby smile!
Man was I cute or WHAT! if I don't say so myself...

On second glance I look like I'm all head....kinda like a bobble head!
Looks like my head should be wobble'n back and forth....


I was 3 1/2 months old here.



Me at the age of 2....still cute...



Then I reached the "what the hell happened to the cute girl" stage...age 5....my poor, poor, poor darling daughter inherited that God awful "cow-lick". This is why she will NEVER have bangs!


Me in 1st grade...trying to pull off the Dorothy Hammell hair cut...I don't think Dorothy had this many "cow-licks" on HER head!

6 Years old with my brother. This was the age of "yarn hair bows"...I had them in every color. My brother is so happy to be sitting beside his big sis. His enthusiasm is heartwarming!




1979..... 7 years old. I remember my hair being rediculously unruly and since flat irons weren't around yet my mom used to try laying my hair out flat on an ironing board and actually ironed my hair to straighten it!

She was desperately trying to disguise that cow-lick in my bangs!


1980 - Is it just me or does this communion dress look like it's 5 sizes too small on me??



1984 - Let me just say......EEEEWWWWW.......Look out Farrah Faucet!

Stay tuned...more photos next week....

OMG! I was just in my photo box last night looking for Flashback material and found my First Communion photo. You actually look cute. Me? D-O-R-K. My 4 year old got all geeked because she recognized the veil that I was wearing. I gave it to her a few weeks ago to play "wedding" and "princess" with.

I love these photos! But girl, you have NOTHIN' on the photos I have of myself as a child ;-) You looked awesome . . . I was the total geeky kid . . . but I sure thought I looked good at the time. Maybe some time I'll get around to doing this as well!

What a fun stroll down memory lane! You were a very cute kid! Don't feel bad, I had cowlicks too.

79 and 84 are my favorites, but then again, you're just beautiful. :)

Oh my God I'm loving this Flashback Friday thing SOOO much! I, too, suffered the consequences of the Yarn Hair Bow era. Could you even find that stuff any more?!? Thanks for playing along!

Those photos are great! My parents have most of the photos from my childhood. I need to go huntin' when I'm their house one day.
