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!

I know this picture is crooked, but desperate times calls for desperate measures!

Last week, I spilled coffee on my keyboard (you would think I'd learn my lesson after doing that twice before), and, well, it no longer works!! So, now I'm bidding on a new keyboard on Ebay! My scanner is hooked up to that computer, so unfortunately I can't scan a new photo and upload to my MAC! Thank God I have the kids computer to use!

Well, Facebook comes to the rescue, AGAIN! One of my friends from Jr. High tagged this picture of me and my friends from 8th grade...1983!!! My first response to her was, "I don't remember anyone carrying a camera around back then!!"

I don't even recall taking this picture!

She's so funny because she had to scan it against the backside of another photo to make it come out, but for some reason she scanned it lopsided!

So, there I am on the far left, with the off white, funky, I don't even know what style that is, outfit! It looks like we could be sitting on something! The two two girls were some of my closest friends (who I was also able to reconnect with on Facebook)! Jr. High/Middle School was a fun time for me. I was able to establish some really great friendships back then! Good times....good times!!

Either way, I looove the hairstyles! :-)

Helene said...

It does look like something from a yearbook! What a fun picture!! Isn't it funny to look back at those pics and see your hairstyles and clothes?! I used to feather my hair back then too in middle school and I thought I was the bomb.

Tara said...

It may not be how you wanted it but it looks "cool" like that. Glad you were able to reconnect and FB came to the rescue.

I think I'm going to sit this week out but then again, I may link up tomorrow. I don't like my last birthday picture but I may end up posting something else.

I reconnected with my best friends from middle school through classmates.com not too long ago! We got together and it was so much fun catching up with them and seeing where our lives took us.

That is a great picture. I had a similar hairstyle as yours :)

Krisha said...

Oh my gosh! I have some pictures that are "cut out" like that, too!

I'm going to have to go dig for them & share!

Denise said...

Great picture!!! I think the clothes & hairstyles are really cute! I think I would much rather dress my daughter like that, than the revealing styles that are so popular even with grade school kids right now.

I hope you get a replacement keyboard fast!! When my monitor died we got one cheap on Craigs list.

I've been connecting with a lot of people from high school on Facebook, I keep hoping no really embarrassing pictures of me surface. I have a few of other people, but I'm keeping them as insurance in case they try posting any of me. LOL!

Sneaky Momma said...

Hee, hee! This is great! I love this pic of you from way back when. :)

♥RocĂ­o♥ said...

iLove your picture! You were so cute!
and your friends too!
Have a ♥Lovely♥ Friday!

Carin said...

that is so much fun. Facebook seems to be a theme as you'll see when you visit me. Isn't great to be able to keep in touch with friends from the past! and I like the tilted picture, that's in right now!

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

I hope you won't take this the wrong way when I say this but this picture reminds me of the band Menudo...Yes, I realize that they were boys so that part is not what I mean but the outfits and the way you are all sitting..they had an album cover like that...;) But you are all still much prettier than Ricky Martin!!!

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

I love the way the photo is cut out.....Love your blog....

Collette@Jesuslovesmums said...

Chris said...

cute pic! :D

by the way, you are homeschooling right? can you tell me, does homeschooling fit all kids? or does homeschooling only fit certain kids?

i am thinking about homeschooling here... need your thoughts.

thanks!

Laurencita said...

Oh! you looked cute in this picture.

Monica said...

Love this picture!! It just fits so well with the 80's.

Denise said...

Wow, very cool.

PropellerHeadMom said...

Cool picture! Love the hairstyle! Looks like your pant legs are rolled up on the bottom. I remember that style!

Theta Mom said...

It does look like a yearbook picture! It's fun to look back at old photos! :)

Dani Joy said...

looks like you all are floating and about to slide off into oblivian. LOL
so cute! I was tempted to post some of my younger years. hmmmm I wonder. Maybe I will. ;)

have a great day and I will try to get mine scanned and up before the day is up.

Stacy said...

FB to the rescue!!!!

Great pic of you and your friends!

Kelli @ RTSM said...

Too funny! I have a ton of picture from high school that are cut out too!

Susie said...

What a great memory to share! I hope your keyboard woes are fixed soon!

Stephanie said...

It looks like the actual picture was cut out in your shapes...that's hilarious! :)

I hate that your keyboard got messed up...at least it wasn't a laptop and then it probably would have been fried. I say that as I am sitting here typing on mine with my coffee cup right in front of me. I would die if mine got messed up since I haven't gotten all of my pictures saved off of here yet. Guess I need to get to that! :)

Hope said...

Hi Alicia,
Hah! The lengths we will go to to get out post out there!
Fun Photo!
♥Hope

Lauren said...

Good friendships never die! Love the photo -- there are many of myself from way back when and I think "what was I wearing???" haha

Alicia W. said...

Friends are like fine wine.. As the years pass it only get's better!

Leonard Family said...

Great pic! Priceless haircuts! It's so fun to look back and giggle!

I am having scanner issues this week too! :-)

Sawatzky family said...

Love the picuter! And those outfits! lol What style we all had in the 80's lol
Great job!

He & Me + 3 said...

You all look like you are synchronized jumpers. LOL Love that picture.

Sara said...

That is such a funny pic! I used to cut out my photos too, like that. Must be something about late 80's/early 90's kids....

Pilar said...

So much fun! :)

Laura said...

So cute!

homeschoolceo said...

That's totally awesome. Loved the 80s :D

Melissa said...

Another great pic! I actually like it crooked like that! I purposely take crooked pics, cause sometimes it's a cool effect! :)

sorry about the coffee on the keyboard! Not fun. I hope you win your ebay auction!

Pam said...

Sorry about the keyboard. Thank goodness for friends who don't remember they carried their camera around!

Kathy C. said...

It's so neat that you have photos from High School. I think the only ones I have would come from the yearbook, lol. :) Well, maybe I have something in there...I'll go dredging around in the archives and see what I can find, lol.

Lyr said...

this is such a great idea!

mimi said...

I actually think lopsided photos are pretty neat. A little artsy ;)That photo reminds me of my highschool days too!

jen@odbt said...

I totally remember cutting out my pictures like this. Love the feathered hair. It must be fun to reminisce with old friends.

Kimberly said...

There was definitely a "cut your photos out" stage back "then" wasn't there? :) Funny the things we used to do and can't remember why now.

amanda said...

got to love FB!

does it make you feel old to know i was born in 1983? lol.

cute pic.

Together We Save said...

Great idea. To funny.

The imPerfect Houswife said...

OK, I am SO doing this next week! I had a post a couple weeks ago that was quite a flashback from my childhood in the 70's! I just found your blog from Muthering Heights and it's adorable!! Can't wait to read more and I'll grab your button, too!

Momisodes said...

What a great photo! And I totally remember that look. I'm really loving your Friday Flashback photos. I'll have to try and ask my mom to dig around for some of my old pics.

blueviolet said...

I remember those rolled up sleeves!!!

whimzie said...

Yay! Facebook saved the day! :)

By the way, I'm catching up on old posts and see I missed your birthday! Happy Belated Birthday! I'll have to check in from time to time to see how 40 is treating you because it's on its way to visit me in a few months!

Daphine said...

lol!!! I love it! Looks like you gals were about to jump or something though....lol!

Lisa said...

I picked you out right away Alicia, that is so cool to be hooked up on facebook with old friends.

wow you have spilled coffee on your keyboard twice. I always keep thinking, seriously, that is going to happen to me someday. God I hope it never does, Tito would have a fit.
