Flashback Foto: 1990

So, yeah-- in the 1980 photo, I am the grumpy-face in the middle. What a little snot, right?? My sour, "You Can't Make Me Smile With Your Squeaky Toy, Mr. Photographer" face is what worries me about my future with Noah and other subsequent kids. If I was such a stubborn, difficult kiddo, doesn't it follow that I'll be "blessed" with more of the same? :)
Anyway, glad you all appreciated the humor! And yes, if I recall correctly, my mom did make all the pink dresses. She amazes me.

as for today, I wasn't planning on so many "flashbacks"... Ha! But thinking about my adventure tonight (to be explained in a moment), I realized I HAD to share some classics with you first:

{eight grade class photo}
Love the bangs? The Coca-Cola shirt? The gentle acne? The awkward teeth? Oh, and that silver on my shirt is a pin. Shaped like an "E". STYLISH. And those earrings? The smaller version of those famous "Jodi Watley Hoops"? Totally not pierced. I bought them at Claires, bent OUT the pierced part, and pinched them on my unpierced ears. I'm AWESOME.

And then this one:

Um. See my "wallpaper"?


Jordan Knight, all the way, baby!!!!

Yeah. I'm going to Kansas City tonight, to see the New Kids on the Block. With my two high school best friends. And I will try to connect with my jr. high best friend while there, the one who started me on my three or four year mad obsession with the NKOTB.

It's gonna be GREAT!

Ah, to be thirteen again, right??

Hope you enjoyed the flashback, and please feel free to click "play" on this video to get your NKOTB fix, since you're not going and I am. NYAH-NYAH!


{seriously. still cute. I still love him. *blush*}

  4. Hope you had a great time at the concert! How fun is that. I remember joining the NOKTB fan club over the phone and getting in big trouble because of a big phone bill :). I was thinking of you today because I have been craving cupcakes the last few days and by golly tonight I am going to make some.

  5. I hate to burst everyone's bubble but MY mother made the pink dresses - well, the two for Juli and Emily. The one Elise is wearing is store-bought. One of the few times I did not sew the dresses for my girls...I still have all three, by the way....

  12. I had very similar wallpaper in my room, although for some reason I was more into Joey. Have fun tonight, Hang Tough.

  13. Yeah, my walls looked so very much like that. . . I guess my obsessive personality started young. . .
