Sincerely Fro Me To You ~ at age 14

I am sharing a photo from a birthday party.  I think this was the first party that after the parents went to sleep, we went out and toilet papered the boy down the streets trees, bushes and family car.  We didn't do this because he were in love with him, we didn't do this because we had a crush, we did this because he was the only boy that lived close enough....   Matt Reesinger, if you ever stumble on this blog of mine I hope it made your day, I hope your parents weren't to mad, you really were a nice boy.


In the first picture I am receiving my signature scent back in 92, Tea Rose perfume.  And take notice I have my nails done even back then they were rose petal pink (to go with my Rose smell) with matching lip gloss, and of course I had blue eye liner on because pink and blue look great together!
How do you all like the shark hair do?  How I ever got that up on one side I will never know.  And then I made little spirals on the sides and held the whole stringy mess back with a scrunchy to match my outfit.  I probably owned 100 of those ugly things.



This picture is me on the far right and sad to say for the other girls, I am only 5'4 so those two are really short.  In the middle is Janelle remember the post about Janelle with the parents always gone so I had my first kiss at her house.  And the girl on the left was my childhood best friend Robyn, she moved onto my street when we were 10, were we inseparable for many years. Robyn was from Tenn, and I was born a Northerner (turned country), anyway Robyn said things like Howdy (which meant hello) and Mater and Tater (which to my surprise meant tomatoes and potatoes) and funny things like cut on the light and cut off the light, oh and shut the Winder (which means please close the window)   I went to my first concert with Robyn, it was Reba, and she was singing Fancy in a red dress, we knew each and every word, I don't think my grandma had any idea what we were listening to!  Robyn and I played baby dolls and barbies, learned to put make-up on and then I stood by her side as she a single teenage girl of just barely 18 gave birth to her son.  I talk to Robyn about once a year, I hope she is doing well!  We haven't seen each other face to face for 10 years.

Girl, do I detect a hint of LEE-PRESS-ON's in that first shot?!

Enjoying the read! :)

Valarie said...

Thats such a fun post!! I had my hair like that and I was from TN so I talk just like your friend Christy. I knew exactly what you were talking about. :)

We are THAT Family said...

Oh, you attained greatness in the 'shark hair' category! And your hair is so long! I laughed out loud at your apology to Matt. One day he will google his own name .... too funny!

Thanks for playing along, Happy Mommy. It's a highlight of my week (which isn't saying a lot about my week, but a highlight still :D)

I love the shark hair...very trendy.

Darla said...

LOL on the shark hair. How cool that you keep up with your childhood friends (even if it's not in person).

Becky said...

Scrunchies were almost as bad as banana clips. Remember those puppies?

You looked so cute...and your friends...well, I hope they grew.

I am also a shorty...5 ft 3 and 3/4...and let me tell you that 3/4 inch matters! ;)

The Apron Queen said...

I was a Yank turned Southerner myself. My Mom tried to "charge" me a dime every time I said ya'll because she didn't think it was proper. She eventually gave up. To this day I say ya'll constantly.

What great pics! I think you & I are about the same age, though I never mastered the art of "shark hair" so luckily I have no regrettable pics of me with hair like that. (Although I *do* have plenty "bad hair pics" regardless...)

Colleen said...

OH! Almost forgot...a friend and I (around the same time as those pics were taken) made those ugly scrunchies and SOLD THEM - what big geeks we were! We thought we were entrepreneurs!

I had the shark hair too, for too many years! Great post! I love remembering back on those times. :-)

Alicia said...

Your hair is awesome. Loved the story. But the hair? Oh, I would have been so jealous of you back then. My hair never would take any curl. You look gorgeous.

Twice Blessed said...

This cracks me up!!! Thanks to Robyn, Tate's little nickname is "Tater Mater Winder Howdy"!

Happy Mommy said...

Krissy~ we are going to Ft Lauderdale. Disney next year!

Tammy said...

Yep, I agree that your friend will one day google his name and wind up here on your blog. Fun! And the shark hair with the side spirals are fabulous!

Gotta GROW with it said...

"Rose"...too bad that wasn't your given name! Fun post. And the sharky hair? I've never heard that term...I think it's because I am so much OLDER (seeing your photo was from the 90's?) Sounds like you have some good friends that stick like glue. Great blog!
