Then and Now...

Well, my friend Lisa over at The Pumpkin Pink Cottage did a "Then and Now" post...then she said, "Double Dare YOU to Play"...I can't pass up a dare, especially a DOUBLE dare...plus I LOVE old photos, so here goes...

Here's me and my mom when I was about a month or so old...why do photos from the 70's have a red tint to them? This would have been late 1977. Like my mom's Farrah Fawcett hair-do?!
Here's one of me, my mom and my mom's twin sister when I was about one. This would have been taken in November 1978. I love those big 'ol glasses my Aunt V has on...cracks me up!
Here's one of me and my Aunt V when I was about 6...probably taken in the summer of 1984. Now I have Farrah Fawcett hair!
I don't have pre-teen/early teen year pics on my computer, so I'll jump right on over to 1994...
Here's a pic of me and my bff. I was about 15 in this pic. I think we were at a Student Council Convention...don't mind the person trying to flip-off the camera (I could name names, but I won't) Sheeeshh, what's wrong with teenagers these days? I think we were totally into Z Cavaricci Jeans, big hoop earrings...and apparently I liked red lipstick...

Do you see a trend here people? Well, this is one from yearbook, we were always REALLY busy and we had absolutely NO time to play around with the camera and do things we weren't supposed to...and you would NEVER catch anyone making obscene hand gestures at the camera...NEVER ever.

All I have to say on this one is look at those sleeves!...and all that hair! That's me on the far left, and that's my "date" in the middle, my lovely cousin Renee (My Glimpse of Life). This would have been in 1995 at our Junior/Senior Prom. Gorgeous!! (Look down at my right hand in the pic...is that a 110 camera? Do they even make those anymore?)
I threw this one in so you all would know that I've been a dork for a long time...so, it's not a new thing. This is of me and Sunshine...probably in 2002 pre-baby, I was about 25. I had lost about 70 lbs. Wish I could be there again.
Here's one of me and my bubba...this was taken down at the Coffee Mugg. Isaiah was probably 1 1/2 years old. So, I was about 27 in this pic. (sans make-up...please excuse)
Here's one of me a few months back...chillin' in my office, taking self-portraits...I have issues.
Now, let me see yours!

I love it how sweet!! I love how the hair changes. I told my mom she looks better now then she did in the late 80's. It is unreal what hair can do to a woman.
