if you can't laugh at yourself....

we were going through old photos this weekend
and
i came across this one of me when i was
well
oh
i don't know exactly
~~
when was the era of wearing headbands and tight white t-shirts with no bra
and
terry cloth shorts
and
thinking you looked really hot while doing so
?
~~
hopefully there wasn't an era
for this look
but
since mondays can be painful
i thought it only fair of me to do my part to make all of you laugh
at least a little
or
maybe a lot
especially if you have a similar looking photo of yourself
tucked away in an old drawer
with hopes of nobody every recovering it
~~
i think maybe this was 1979 or 1980

  6. I can't stop grinning! You made me laugh but not really because of the cool ensemble or cool censored strip but because of the cool attitude on your face.

  27. oh yeah i remember terry cloth shorty shorts and headbands. you look cute in them.
    and you haven't really changed all that much.
    i was looking at old photos this weekend too. in fact i came across one of me in shiny satin silver shorty shorts. wow

    ReplyDelete
  28. gotta love the 70's and the 80's--you made Olivia proud-quite the hottie-thanks for the giggles and for not making me show my photos;-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think you and I are about the same age, so yes 1979 sounds right. As soon as you mention your terry cloth shorts.....I smiled. I loved my terry cloth shorts!

    I'm glad you could laugh at yourself. Hey, what about the disco era? I have many memories of disco dancing in Madison!!!!!

  30. nice tan
    I remember those shirts with the super sized collars and the weird baggy pants that might make me puke if I find the picture.

    I think you made a great find.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Love this pic of you!! Makes me want to just break out in a flashdance!

    ReplyDelete
  32. hey you were and still are a hottie!

  34. LMAO! Wow, its so refreshing that you really do laugh at yourself!

    And I could never post them!
    It just goes to show you; what a strong beautiful brillant woman you trully are!
    Thanx for the laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  36. ...I'm old enough to think that you really DO look cute and hot in that pic...:)

    ReplyDelete
  37. You did make me laugh. Love the look on your face, sheer delight.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Look how adorable you are! I ran into some old vacation photos from the same era. I think we shared those shorts!

    ReplyDelete
  39. That is absolutely hysterical. Funny thing... I have found that I keep my High School yearbook well hidden these days. With my kids in HS... they are relentless with the teasing as is... we will have to wait a few years, until they have some pictures of their own that are out of style... then they might appreciate.
    :)

  40. Well, no wonder you're so cute now. Just look at you back then?

    I've always laughed at myself, it helps me get through the hard stuff.

  41. Oh I would have been so jealous of you if I knew you then. Look at how incredibly beautiful and put together you were. ( are ).

    ReplyDelete
  42. Uhhh just came from the changing page what the heck...You didn't changed a bit. Okay only the hairdo. How come some have it all. You look just the same as you did in the 80. Thanks for taking us there with you. You've got more nurves than me.
