I'm Taking It Back to the Old School..

Today I am linking up with Holly, Jennifer, and Kimmy. These three lovely ladies had me up in my attic early this morning digging through some old pictures. I realized this morning that the late 80's and early 90's were some good but weird times for hair or maybe my family didn't own a hair brush. Either way, I hope you get a good laugh enjoy.
 
Exhibit numero uno. This would be my kindergarten school pic. O.M.G. My hair is as straight as a board. So...yeah, that would be a perm in my little 5 year old hair. There appears to be a green hair bow with a yellow ribbon in it somewhere in that bird nest of hair. John Deere...perhaps?? Hmmm...love how it matches my hot pink turtle neck.
Skipping to second grade because I've moved a billion times and lost pics. This came straight out of the yearbook. Ha! Apparently, my boyfriend and I wrote that we loved each other on our pics. I think I remember thinking it was destiny because my pic was right above his. Well, I ended up marrying his third cousin so close enough. Lol! I love my mullet'ish hair style here. I am sure it took my mom a while to curl those bangs. I recall this outfit. It was a blue and white striped denim romper with pink buttons. I sported some white leather Keds with this piece. Oh and PS...that's a pink bandana in my hair. Go country or go home!
 Now skipping to the 8th grade. Lawdy...those were some awkward years. Not sure what's going on with the bangs but they are good and centered AND crooked. Ugh! I love how my earrings are bigger than my ears and have a matching necklace. Loving that vest!
Skipping to my sophomore year. You were not cool if you didn't rock a pair of Timba'lands with some slits cut in your jeans. You also had to layer those t-shirts! Again...the bangs are asymmetrical. My nails look pretty though. Ahahahahaha!
Senior pic! All my bangs are there this time but not looking so hot. I love how Tipton County Schools kept it real and original. Note that they used the same background that was in my kindergarten picture. Love it! This pic makes me laugh because it was taken during the summer before we started school. I had partied it up the night before and I made my 15 year old sister drive me to have this pic taken. She cried the whole time. Bless her heart!
 
So, this was fun but I am disappointed that I couldn't find more pics. My first grade pic with the snaggle tooth and my third grade pic in the red and white polka dot romper are just priceless. Not to mention the fifth grade pic with a man's tie and a denim shirt! Remember that time when ties were in?  Of course you do! Lol!

  1. Oh I just love this! haha. My old school pictures haven't officially made the move from my parents house to my house so I couldn't dig up anything good but it's amazing the details we remember on each year's pictures. I remember the hot denim skirt and pirate shirt I sported for 4th grade. The year my mom was in the hospital so dad let us wear whatever to school...my sister looks like a homeless child and I'm wearing a windbreaker suit lol

  7. Did you use a curling iron for those bangs? ;) I tried bangs once and it was awful... natural curly hair and curling iron bangs don't mix!

  9. We must be close to the same age because a lot of my pictures look just like this. I remember trying to "flatten" my bangs the whole bus ride to school b/c my mom would tease them as high as she could. LOL

  12. Ok, you are the CUTEST thing ever in that first picture! And I think it was our age and time about 8th-9th grade when the Timberland craze was in full effect. My sister to this day still does the cutting of the sides of her jeans- drives me bat shit crazy!
