Ahhh the 80s!

Ahhh, the 80s! 20 years ago when our little 35mm cameras were horrible we loved to spray our bangs and head over to Olan Mills for a photo shoot. I recently came across these beauties and just had to share. ...did I really just say 20 years ago! How is that possible?

My sister, Angela and I in 1989 (I was 17, she was 19).
My best friend, Emily Tyler and I...not sure the date, probably sometime during our Senior Year in 1989 or 1990.

I especially love the long gold chain; very stylish! What's scary is that the 80's may be coming back :-) thanks for sharing!

You are beautiful! In any hair style you all look so beautiful to me. Love Mom.

So AWESOME! I never went and took pictures like that--you were so much cooler than I was!

I am peeing my pants. Glamour shots anyone? Isn't it nice to look back and know that your beauty transcends even feathered hair? You are one hot mama.

Michelle, I remember a while back you commented on my blog and I saw your name on Kristine Anderson's blog and thought I'd say hi. We are moving to Bloomington/Normal Illinois next week. We are coming to Chicago with my inlaws and are excited to see what it's all about. Apparantly it's only 2 hours from where we will live so I hope to go there more than once. Melanie

Those are gorgeous! Thanks for posting them!! I have ZERO recollection of taking those photos and would love to be able to revisit the conversation leading up to it... Was it a subject of much discussion? Did we make an appointment and did I borrow that white dress from a friend for the occasion? I'm sure Mom was thrilled with the idea. Did I mail my only copy to Dan? Or maybe to Jason? Was your dress your inspiration for your bridesmaid dresses? Do hair salons still give perms? Will our grandchildren find these pictures and frame them and hang them up on their walls?
