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! Don't forget to sign in to Mr. Linky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

January 1986

I about fell off my chair when I saw this picture! My friend from high school tagged this picture of me on my Facebook awhile back! Might as well put it to good use, right? You see the gal standing up in the middle wearing the blue dress? This was her Sweet 16 party and her parents rented a hall. There was food, DJ, and dancing! I still remember this night! It was so fun!

That's me on the far right with the pink satin skirt!! Remember that look? I had a black satiny shirt on, one of those long necklaces that was in style, black nylons, and black pumps! Yah, I thought I had it going on!! LOL! And no, that was not my boyfriend behind me. It looks like it because he's standing right there! My friend on my right is the girl in my last weeks post!

Five of these people are on my Facebook, and it's really awesome to be able to stay in touch with them! Also, it's weird to think that a little over two years from this date, I met my future husband!!!

Snazzy looking group! Great flashback photo Alicia. :o)

mimi said...

We could have shared closets....you had all the same "looks" that I had. Or, I guess we went through all the same fashion trends ;) I remember those long necklaces well..and the long sweaters....long skirts. What was it with all the oversized clothes? So funny. Very Madonna at the time.

Great picture Alicia!

Lisa said...

What a nice memory with friends. I know what you mean when you were describing your outfit oh my how the styles have changed.
Great flashback.

Tara said...

Have you posted a picture of the guy behind you before? He looks familiar. You fit in very well with everbody unlike me....LOL

PS DId you add me to the linky list earlier? Somebody did and I didn't realize it until I had already linked up myself. You can remove me from either 7 or 16, I think.
