FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

I love taking pictures of my family, and I have so many from my pre-digital camera days! So, every Friday, I plan on scanning an old photo and sharing about it! I'm having so much doing this, so if you would like to join me, let me know so I could see your Friday Photo Flashback!

Yup..that's me! This was my Freshman year in High School...circa 1983-84! I went to the biggest school in the area! There were at least 4,000 student body! Can you imagine that?

I don't know why in the world I made that expression for my CHEERLEADING picture! Was I trying to look cool or was the sun in my eyes?? Wasn't I supposed to look "bubbly?" For those of you other "80's" gals, do you see those mini buttons on my shirt? Remember how cool those were? From what I can see, I have a Duran Duran button, but I can't make out what the other ones were! I wish I had kept them!! Ahh..the memories!

Girl, you should be asleep! Just like me! I LOVE this photo of you!!! Do you keep in contact with any of the other cheerleaders?!? I had a minibutton that I am SO embarrassed to say I wore on my short sleeved purple denim jean jacket that said, "Under my clothes I am completely naked." Ok that was my favorite button. What was that about!?!?!?!?!?

This is so cute! What fun it is to go back and look at a simpler time in your life.

Miti said...

Aww...what a cute cheerleader. It's so funny to look at all those old photos and see what was considered cool back in the day. Like remember tight rolling your pants. What were we thinking?!! SO FUNNY! BTW...thanks for helping me with my marquee. I really like the way it turned out. Well...I need to get off my behind. Hope you have a good weekend.

Cute hair...snicker, snicker, snicker..of course, I'm not showing old pics of myself so I guess I should stop snickering!
I, too, went to a high school of 4,000 (in Virgina).

As a child of the 80s myself, I remember all those fads. Best of all - big hair rocks!

Love the hair, love the look, love the buttons! You were totally looking awesome. :) I'm also a survivor of the 80's. We've been Christians for almost the same amount of time.

O.k., so I'm not going to admit that I was married with children (well, one child) in the 80's. Nope. Not admitting it. So I wasn't wearing little buttons with people's faces on it.

I was wearing my son with his face throwing up all over my shoulder when I burped him...does that count?

Julie said...

The buttons make me think of the charm necklaces...Ah the 80s...don't think there's another decade like it!

Debbie said...

I love that era - big hair and all. Great photo.

Veggie Mom said...

You looked too cute Ms. Thing!
