Yup, it's true.
I thought I'd share some old pics of me and my family as a tribute to the last three decades of them putting up with me! Here's me and mom in 1980, I believe...she made the cutest matching outfits for us to wear in photos.
I still remember being this little girl in my Wonder Woman undies...I think I was 4 or 5 here?
Note the sweet pea-green carpet and matching painted furniture! I do believe this could be considered 'in style' today...at least in Domino or something that isn't real life...
I'm sure this was taken the same night. I loved that little blue nightie my mom let me play with, and check out the 'I Love Brian' pin! Brian is my brother's name, if I hadn't mentioned it. He is three years younger than me, so he was always up in my business. Calling for me, wandering into my room, dressed like a trucker, etc, etc...
It's so cute when I think about it now. Here's a rare shot of us with mom and her parents. They both died within a few years after this was taken.
I don't think they liked being in pictures, which is why we have very few. I wish I would've known them more. Here's a Christmas pic, look at my precious hair! I only wish it was that perfect light blonde today.
I cut my own bangs for one christmas, they must have grown back for this one! Family Christmas shot...the year after, maybe? I look so much older...
Many years later, my dad became extra goofy, and I started wearing dark makeup and using hair products...yikes! We were 10 and 13, maybe?
Later on I chopped my hair, my dad looked really really cute, mom was gorgeous as usual, and Brian was growing up so fast! I think we were 14 and 17 here? Not sure....
Then it was 2000 and I was 21, Brian was 18..and I wish I was smiling better in this photo!
And while I don't have a very recent Christmas photo, here is my family at my wedding. I think we are all looking pretty great for our age, don't you?
Especially my mom, who is 58! Here she is at my bachelorette party, I hope I take after her FOR REALS. I'm sure she will kick my ass for posting her age, oh well!
Anyway, I have many many things to post about. But not tonight, because it's time to have some margaritas!
