A Blast From the Past

I’m not too fond of the expression but there is no other way to describe the photos that a friend of mine from high school dug up and had the nerve to posted on Facebook. (Ahh, the 90’s…the good ol’ days! Ha!)

So if you need a laugh, you’ve come to the right place. ;-]  {PS: If you’re super brave, you can click on the pics to make ‘em larger. But don’t say I didn’t warn you!}

37862_1489964136422_1453533857_31277502_6658290_n Here I am, in all my freshman year glory! (Scary, right?) I’m 14-15 in this picture, either late 1990 or early ‘91. But what’s really scary is the fact that I’m wearing my sister’s tie dye shirt with my step-dad’s dress shirt over it. (Anyone who knows me KNOWS I hate tie dye anything. What the heck was I thinking that day, anyway? And of course, it’s the one day my friend brought her camera. Go figure.)

37862_1489964376428_1453533857_31277508_4368107_nOh yeah, baby! Check out the lioness!!! Ha ha! This was taken when I was about 17 with my boyfriend at the time. I guess you could say we both had some hair issues…Ha!

37862_1489964056420_1453533857_31277500_5086780_nHere we are again at his senior prom in 1993.  At least my hair looks better this time! :) I’m 17 in this one, too.

37862_1489964096421_1453533857_31277501_4463721_nFast forward to 1995. Here I am in the middle of the NV desert with Sierra’s father, Bobby.  I was 7 months pregnant with her when this was taken.

37862_1489964176423_1453533857_31277503_720277_n December 8th, 1995. Sierra was 1 day old and leaving the hospital. This was also the day of Bobby’s viewing. {He passed away on December 4th.}Next to me is Bob’s sister, April. She looks so pretty, whereas I look like a freakin’ pelican with that HUGE pouch under my chin. Ugh! (What is up with that?!)

37862_1489964296426_1453533857_31277506_296253_n Ha ha! Talk about your “exhausted new mommies”! This was taken about a week after Sierra was born. (Yawn)

37862_1489964416429_1453533857_31277509_1790539_n I believe Sierra’s about a month old here, so we’ll say January 1995. Here’s the story behind this photo: I had taken Sierra in a few days earlier for some “new baby” pictures. Then maybe 3 days later, April and I decided to take a picture of the 3 of us together. The photographer recognized me from the previous day—sort of. Get this—she was confused as to who was who. Was I the mommy? Or was April? Well, in the end she mistakenly assumed April was ME, so she plunked Sierra down on her lap! LOL She even asked if we were *twins*, can you believe it? We said, “No we’re not even blood related!”  Too funny. :)

37862_1489964216424_1453533857_31277504_5799408_n And last but not least…this is me and Crystal, the friend behind all this madness. :) This was taken after I moved back to WA from CA. Sierra was 6 weeks old at the time. (And no, I cannot explain what I’m wearing. All I can say is that I must’ve *desperately* needed to do laundry because I certainly DO NOT match! Ha ha!) Oh, and check out the giant scrunchie!!! Ha ha ha!

Weren’t the 90’s grand? ;-p

LOL! These are great. I won't mention that your senior prom was right around the time of my wedding! (Oops, I guess I mentioned it...)

Denise ~ awesome photos! Hey, at least we should look back at our teen years and have a few laughs. Maybe I'll scan in photos some day soon and share the lovely fashion we had going on in the 80s.
