Friday Photo Flashback

This is my favorite meme to participate in. We get to go back in time and share some of our best days before digital photography with computer storage and upload of photos. Thank you Alicia, please visit her blog to see some other flashbacks.


This is a picture of me when I was in my early 20's. It happens to be the last night that I was an available single female. This was a picture taken in my apartment by my mom before I left for the hospital Christmas Party. This was a day when I NEVER went outside without a shower and my hair done, nails always perfect, owned a brand new Ford Probe, worked out 4 days a week at Vic Tanny, always had extra money and spent it on myself. I had my own apartment and it was always neat and clean ahhhh....... I am glad I did it then because I sure can't do it now.

This night was December 22, 1991 and Tito and I both went to the party. I was supposed to be going with another guy to this party but he was a jerk so I ended up going myself. Tito took a girl from work and I was sad to see he had a date. He asked me to dance and then he asked me out and the rest is history. He gave me a very nice card and a box of cherry cordial chocolates for Christmas.

Look at this precious card.
What sweet words <3

So sweet! What do your kids think of the styles back then when they see these pictures? I was THERE and I still say, "Look at those puffy sleeves!!!!" These styles shock my senses now. lol

You look lovely in your 80's attire.
