Sorry about the glare. I took a picture of a picture. WHO IS THAT GORGEOUS COUPLE????
It’s me and Rick at my senior prom in 1992. Seriously, I would give my right arm to look like that again. And look at my Rick. Uni-brow and all! Thankfully that is gone. . . but he still has those good looks. DO NOT post a comment about how skinny I was then. . .it will just depress me more. But dang, I looked good! And that was my favorite dress of ALL time. Very cool in the early 90’s!
Speaking of the early 90’s. . . I found this box of cassette tapes that I have been keeping. Rick just about died when he pulled it out of the POD. “Why would you keep cassette tapes, Ame? You don’t even have a way to play them anymore.” I had no answer except that I am a pack rat. And very sentimental. I even found a “mixed tape” from a fiend in college. . . why would I want that? Basically I just want my kids to know what a mixed tape is and what a GREAT gift it was in the day because it took FOREVER to make. Do you still have some of these?
As an act of love for my hubby, I threw them in the dumpster. Agghh! It hurt me a little. . . kinda like I was throwing away part of myself in all those tapes. He thinks I am crazy. . . and I would probably have kept them forever, but he was stressing out over all my “junk.” Purge, Amy, purge.
Okay. . . here is the BEST item I have possibly EVER OWNED. . . and if you knew me when I carried this, I want you to leave a comment for me (Christy and Susan)!! Are you ready??
Are you seeing this? I think I had this in middle school. It is a black patton telephone purse. That is an actual telephone. The handle was the phone receiver and inside the purse was a little box and cord that you plugged into a telephone jack. SERIOUSLY. . . I was THE COOLEST person EVER with this thing. And remember that this was WAAAAYYYY before cell phones. I want to carry it NOW. I might just bring it to church on Sunday. Do you think I might be able to bring something back kinda cool, like Katie Holmes and her tight rolled jeans?? Did you ever have a purse like this? I have never seen any other, than mine.
Okay. . . enough of memory lane. I love going through my old stuff and reminiscing. Sometimes I think I am getting Alzheimer’s in my mid-30’s because I cannot remember anything. Until I dig out something from the good ole days and then I am back in that moment in no time. Do you keep things from your past growing up? Do you like to look back at them? I will have more pics to post as soon as I figure out how to scan them in my computer. Thanks for walking with me down memory lane. . .
