Meme-ory lane

Not A Mean Girl tagged me! This meme is a little bit different. I like it. I think you'll all enjoy the results. HA! I literally chuckled when I realized what photo was going to be the subject of the post.

Here are the rules:

1. Go to your documents
2. Go to your 6th file.
3. Go to your 6th picture.
4. Blog about it.
5. Tag 6 friends to do the same.

Simple enough right? Here is my 6th Photo

This lovely photo comes from my "those were the days" folder. It's filled with pictures that have been scanned by myself or friends. I love that we can do that! Otherwise, how would I show the blogosphere my hot 80's style?

From left to right: ME, Laurie, Kelly and Jessica. The year was 1985, I believe. I was 19 and ripe for the pickin' Please note the tan. I'm quite certain I was doing the fake and bake because my tummy is beautifully bronzed. I have no recollection of wearing a bikini back then. My boobs were so tiny!

I had gone to Decatur with Laurie, I think, to have a rip-roarin' good time before she got married in September. This was a typical pose for us when a group of us got together. I always thought it was stupid, but I went along because Laurie would insist. I think she just wanted to show off her gams. I have no idea. Kelly seems a bit reluctant, doesn't she?

I don't follow the rules implicitly. I think plenty of others are already committing this meme as I type. So, I will spare y'all.


  1. You and your friends look very cute with the hair, tans, and fashionable clothes, You all look quite happy. Pictures with happy people always are wonderful. keepsakes. Perhaps, I will try your meme.

  2. You see....I am not surprised by this 80's photo at all. YOU rock all things 80's!! Mwah!

  3. Good Gordness!

    The Hair!

    The lamps!

    The wallpaper!

    The Hair!

    What is that yellow thing Jessica is wearing?!?

    You look completely coordinated and spritely, MissRiss!

    Good times, indeed.

  4. Damn, Rupe stole my first line. Look at the HAIR!!!!!! hahahaha.

  5. Yep. The 80's sure knew how to make hair big. AUSSIE Freeze was my hair's best friend.
    Rupe, to answer your question about Jessica's shirt: There was a fashion to have back shirt tails exceedingly long compared to the front. Jess opted to tie the front. I'm certain there was an idea it made her look thinner. Jessica has aged amazingly. She's breathtaking.

    The photo was taken at Kelly's mom's house. I can't be held responsible for the furnishings. We always joked that she looked like Lisa Lisa of "Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam." She emphatically denied all such accusations.

    I was a very low budget gal. Wait, somethings never change. Anyway, That shirt was cut off. It did hand below my arse and I felt it wasn't flattering. Besides, when you have tanned, flat abs, it's OK to show a little bronzed skin, right? I had a shirt that matched the shorts. But that'd be overkill on the pastel plaid.

  6. I love it! Nice tan, I think I had the same fake and bake thing going on too!


  7. I love this picture - so much fun!

    And ... you consider that small??? *covers chest*



Say what!?
