I’ll admit it: I love to reminisce and look through old pictures…it’s seriously one of my favorite things to do. So when Liz over at a belle, a bean, and a chicago dog came up with the idea to create a linky so that we could link up a post with one or more photos of ourselves taken some time during our senior year of high school, I immediately said “I’m in!”
So I’m going to show you some pics from the end of my junior and throughout my senior year. I graduated in 1992, so if you remember those days, you’ll appreciate these pictures because they’ll bring back lots of memories!
Let’s start with my senior picture:
Note the big hair and copius amounts of hair spray to get height on the bangs and wings. The fake ‘n bake tan. You can’t see them, but I also have the fake acrylic fingernails that could scratch your eyes out. If you were not in high school in the late 80s/early 90s, this style may be foreign to you…but to me? This says high school!
Next we have the very end of my junior year:
I’m on the bottom right. The other girls were all seniors and graduating, so this was our BFF picture. Note my Swatch Watch with the changeable band and scrunchy socks and tennis shoes. Naturally we all wore coordinating colors. And most of us have scrunchies on top of our heads.
Oh, this is a good one:
I’m in the middle. The other 2 girls are also in the photo above. To prove how smart kids are, we thought it would be a good idea during their last week of high school to ditch, not tell our parents, and go to Tiajuana, Mexico for the day to drink and have fun. Three cute, young girls in a foreign country all alone. Dumb asses.
My graduation picture:
Apparently taken either before my fake tan or after it had worn off.
The reason I included this photo was because of the belly-baring sweater that I would no longer be caught dead in. But the funny part – look at my pants…they’re belted jeans that are waaaayyy above my belly button! We call them mom jeans now, but back in the day? They were cool!
And last but not least:
Who could forget going to the mall to get their Glamour Shots taken with friends?! Where else could you pay to get made up like Tammy Baker and then have your picture taken?
Now go dig your senior pics out, post them, and then link up over at Liz’s place!
