‘Fro Me to You-- 80’s Cousins

I decided to roll a few more people under the traditional Thursday bus in this weeks ‘Fro Me to You. Brought to blog land courtesy of Kristen over at We Are THAT Family.

I am unsure of the exact year in this week’s photo, but it was probably taken pretty close to 1980. This is a photo of me and my three siblings and the two middle kids are a couple of my 1st cousins (sorry, Angela, if you still read this).

Check out my cousin's cool add-a-bead necklace (I still have all of mine). And who else had the super cool belts that you could change the color of the leather?! I promise, I would still wear it today if I had it.

My twin is at the top left and bringing the big glasses home while sporting a classy little embroidery accented dress while draped by a white cotton sweater.

My little brother is at the bottom left. He’s rocking the big pointed collar which is accentuated by the royal blue sweater.

My little sister is on the bottom right. She’s draped in a lovely brown plaid jumper complete with an ecru long sleeve blouse. The HUMUNGO bow completely highlights her lovely blonde pixie cut hairstyle.

Last but not least, I would be the lovely at the top right. My ensemble includes a most comfortable plaid flannel shirt and more than likely Levi’s jeans. My look is completed with the top button fastened which frames my round face and accentuates the part right down the middle of my head! Nice.

I can assure you that this lovely photo has never seen the inside of a photo album. The clothing definitely screams the 80’s! Ahhh….the good ol’ days!

For more Thursday fun, click on over the Kristen’s and flip through all the other carnival participants. I guarantee you WON’T regret it.

Add-a-Bead necklaces! I remember those. Sadly, I no longer have mine.

Sweet picture! The 80s were so fun. :)

Fashion is always such a roller coaster! I had a humungo bow over a plaid jumper once too, but in the 70's, I was very young, maybe 4?

Did I realize that you were a twin? I don't THINK I knew that you were a twin.

Very cool.

Lovely. It just gets better and better.

Cousin pix are cool - I guess I better dig mine out. I didn't know you were a twin! Btw, don't make fun of pixie haircuts and blouses with bows! They were awesome! :)

Valarie said...

I do believe your mother had stock in the plaid factory, cause ya'll really liked that stuff. :)

Muthering Heights said...

Wowee, that's a lot of plaid!

jennifer said...

The job/email/kids thing was not me... SORRY! I know it is going to drive you nuts now.

Have a great evening.

Jennifer said...

That's a great flashback. I just recently checked out some old cousin photos. Looks SO much like yours!

Drama Mama said...

jennifer said...

ROOOOLL TIIIIIDE! I hope you enjoy the game tomorrow. I hope I enjoy it too! Man, I hope our boys pull this off!

Manager Mom said...

Hee... this is a funny coincidence that I found your blog and this post today. Just a few weeks ago I posted all of my growing up pictures. They are tragic. Yet highly entertaining.

Nice to meetya, Ms. Grits.

WOO HOO! I L. O. V. E. me some Alabama football. We have shouted our heads off at the TV tonight!! And I am exhausted from sheer Bama joy!

Just heard a sports caster predicting Alabama for a #2 ranking. And Coach Sabin said... "I'm happy... I know I don't look happy..." LOL! Now THAT is a football coach!!

Wonderful to hear from you tonight. I hope that the rest of your weekend is as good as tonight has been.
