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 MckLinky so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

This is my friend Ethel & I back in 1989! I can't remember exactly where we took this picture, but it was at one of those portrait studios. Oh my gosh, I can't believe I wore my hair and makeup like that, but I guess that was the "style" back then. My oldest daughter told me that it looks like I had hair like a witch! Haha! Kids..they're so funny!

And just for fun, here we are, almost 20 years later in 2008!!!

That is so great! So fun to look back at that decade. I love how you have a recent picture of you both too. I see you are using MckLinky too. I guess it's goodbye Mr. Linky, even after a help ticket they still can't get mine working. Good thing for MckLinky =)

Mocha Momma said...

My haven't our hairstyles changed? Those look high maintenance too.

Did you have those 14 inch tall cans of hairspray? I remember watching girls fix their hair and spray with those huge cans, it was crazy.
