Flashback Friday in Photos

In honor of flashback Friday, this week we turn to the photographic record–which (thanks to fire that consumed two different childhood homes) is pretty sparse.  I apologize in advance for the image quality. They are copies of copies of, etc.  But I did find irrefutable proof I existed in miniature (and bald) form:


Frequently in blue:

Also proof that my bad hair days started at a young age:


As did wardrobe malfunctions:

And that I really was, for a time, an alien:

And did I ever mention that I wore REALLY big glasses (not to mention ’90’s hair in all it’s glory):

It took me until 10th grade to realize that I could safely navigate my way to the photographer’s chair without my spectacles, and thereby avoid the entire issue. Apparently I also discovered lipstick:

That’s pretty much it, until I got married. A few snapshots here and there (cameras weren’t a common possession then, like they are now) none of which I have the umph to go find at the moment.

I’ve been told twice now in two weeks that my daughter and I look like twins. I think it’s just that we have similar bone structure, and long hair. Some day I’ll have to post a m/d picture and let you be the judge. PSPheonix did a few days ago, and it brought tears to my eyes, they were so beautiful. As for now, enough procrastinating the real labors of the day…

    Rotfl…. Okay I’m not going to lie I am totally laughing right now! (I’m her sister I can) I love how you went from (3rd Picture down) Super curly hair afro girl to the 4th picture- Short flat hair… What the ? And While we are on that 4th picture… What are you wearing?
    I must say though… Yes you were the pretty one in High school… I idolized you for it.

      I believe the afro was Becky or Bonnie’s idea–they used perm rods. And the next picture–you don’t remember that? That was post-Provo… you remember what they did to us? Oh, wait, you were the cute kid, so they didn’t shave you like the rest of us, that’s right. The outfit I think they bought at a circus surplus depot. If I remember right it was a present from my Grandma Nemeth. You’re jealous, I know.

    You were so cute as a kid!! And I love the curly hair, so your bad hair days didn’t start as soon as you think. 😉
