FRIDAY PHOTO FLASHBACK

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Just sign in to Mr. Linky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

After I saw Laura's prom picture last week, I knew I had to share mine, too! This is me and my other best friend, Susanna (on the right) at our Senior Ball in 1987! I can't believe this was 22 years ago!

momstheword said...

Hahaha! You are so funny! I can't imagine anything about me that you'd want to know that you don't already know but feel free to ask away, lol!

Sara said...

That is a great photo! I have a white prom dress too! Actually, when I had all boys, I finally got rid of my prom dresses. Hopefully no one decides they want to wear them. They're at the good will.

Thanks for your words of encouragement today! I SSSOOOO need that kind of support right now, i've never touched on that subject before, and I got some great responses back!! Honestly, seeing that you do it and love it helps encourage me! Isn't it so amazing what the internet does for people! It's crazy!

Daphine said...

LOL! Well, look at you! Girl, you're posing pretty darn confident....lol! You had it going on, huh?
Seriously, it's a great picture of you and you friend!

Carey-Life in the Carpool Lane said...

Okay, so it's not even still Friday in most parts of the country, but I made it just under the wire for you and I in Cali. Whew!

It's my first one and it ends with a downer but I really wanted to use these photos...

Thanks for a great carnival! Or is it a meme? I get them confused...
