‘Fro Me to You--- Queen for a Year

This week’s installment of Kristen’s Sincerely ‘Fro Me to You carnival is a last minute decision.  Due to unforeseen circumstances, completely beyond my control, I have postponed my planned photo classic.

As some of you may know, my college buddies and I have declared flashback-photo “war” on one another over on facebook.  What began as an innocent 40 year old’s reflective photo montage, has turned into a battle of middle-aged women vying for the imaginary Best Flashback Photo Award!

Anyhoo, the newest “war” upload has provided today's  ‘frotastic photo jewel,  provided by none other than my BFF Teresa.  To whom I am still sucking up to after my declaration of “war" post which revealed three of us in some sort of wallpaper wardrobe fiasco.  That photo alone would fit the requirements of today’s theme. 

*sorry ADD moment*    On with today’s photo:

One of my favorite memories from college is playing intramural field hockey.  Nothing like girl’s at a women’s college taking out their frustrations on a field wielding wooden sticks and chasing a hard plastic ball.  Oh yea, I must not leave out the cute plaid skirts. 

I think it was my senior year that I was nominated as Captain of the senior team.  Which probably doesn’t mean a whole lot to you, but for me, it lead me to my one and only official coronation! 

As the Captain of the “Hockey Day” winning team, may I Sincerely present ‘Fro Me to You, my crowning achievement as “Hockey Day Queen of 1988”

Well at least you got a tiara. The only tiara that I have ever owned I had to buy at a yard sale.

Funny post!
