Flashback Friday!! Because I was awesome at 15 & 16

You guys, I have thousands of pictures! THOUSANDS. 

But how many do you really want to see? 

My brilliant idea of FLASHBACK FRDAYYYYYYY, may only last a few more weeks. 

But today, I shall show you my FINE self, circa 1989-1990. 

In my box of photos, I found this gem of me celebrating my 15th birthday at Chi-Chi's! (HOLLA IF YOU REMEMBER CHI-CHI'S!!!) Obviously, this was after a basketball game, since I'm wearing my pom-pon outfit, which was beautifully set off with a royal blue turtleneck. 

The frosted hair WITH a perm, was my genius idea. 


I have no idea who took this picture of me, but here I am, studying goofing off, in ESPANOL! Still working the frosted/perm look, along with a giant white sweater, set off with a red scarf around the waist. Honestly.



Here I am at 16, I'm sure about to head out cruising with the besties in our mom-mobiles. I just love how we are all wearing our giant socks with our white tennis shoes. ALSO, I vividly remember that purse around my shoulder. It was a  blue Liz Claiborne and I was proud of that bad boy!

And are we confused about the temperature that day? Girl on left, sweatshirt with shorts. Me, a flippin' turtleneck, with the frosted jeans. Girl on right, totally summer with a t-short and shorts. I guess we were just covering ALL our seasonal bases. WHO KNOWS.



Notice here, I have much lighter hair. Um, hello SUN-IN! And look at me, making a duck-face, WAY before duck-face was the rage. I'm such a trend-setter.



And lastly....


I don't even know.

I love all the pictures but the last one was my fav! I'm guessing someone (probably your mom?) told you just sit really quickly for a picture and it happened to be right by the bathtub? Hilarious!!! Speaking of moms, mine STILL says "frosted" in relation to getting highlights and request often that I should get that done to my hair.

Hope you and your amazing hair have a great weekend :)

Gretchen!!! If I laugh out loud once more at my computer whilst reading your posts my family is going to think I am slightly nuts lol Actually this time my laugh was a cross between a stifled laugh and a snort because that pic got to me hahahaha I thought the first one was funny too!! At least you were hot even with that hair which was by all means the fashion back then!! Oh and I used to love Sun-In :)
