The last couple of days have been a mad flurry of activity around here. Shopping, baking and general Christmas preparations are seriously eating into my blog time. Sigh. Hopefully I'll be able to get some bloggy time in tonight after the bean is in bed. Hopefully.

To tide you over, here is a picture of me (on the right) and my beautiful baby sister (not so much a baby) from the day of my high school graduation. First I would like to point out the sheer tininess of my waist. Barely bigger than my arm. Miss it. Also, the fact that for some reason my sister and I decided to wear dresses with the exact same print, albeit in completely different styles and colors. Remember that Pretty Woman dress from the polo scene? I'm pretty sure that inspired both of us. All we needed were a couple of oversized hats and we would have been good to go. Finally, HELLO bangs!

Ah, good times.

PS - Sorry for the picture quality. The old film days were a difficult time for me. About half of my pictures from those days were double exposed. Thank goodness for digital!


  1. I look back at my HS pics when I *thought* I was fat and long for the slim waist too. Youth is SO wasted on the young! You're a hottie, though, bangs and all! ;)

  2. That's an adorable picture. I always wished I had a sister. But you look way too young to be graduating high school!

  3. You actually look good in your retro pictures! And I think the matching dresses are sweet! Ah... I remember the bangs!

  4. Further proof that we are just about the same age...I had this exact same hairstyle and this exact same dress.

    You know at that time we thought we were smokin' hot. Did you wear white panty hose with yours? Fess up. Did ya? I'll admit to having Casper-legs while working this frock.


  5. gosh I know...I have not been able to keep up with it all lately! I am hoping tonight I can blog some uninterruppted (unheard of!)

    Loved Pretty Woman!

  6. I rocked many a polka dot outfit in my adolescence and every time my dad would say, "You look good in spots."

    Lula! has my number because I would, for sure, have been wearing white or off white hose with such a frock.

  7. Wow--you guys look a lot alike! I love your Pretty Woman get-up!!

    I'm way behind in my bloggy stuff too--feeling guilty!!

  8. Okay, that is TOTALLY the dress from the Pretty Woman polo match.
    I am so jealous.

  9. I miss my waist too. Apparently not enough to put down the fork.

    You're both beautiful!

  10. I totally had that hair. I wish I had those dresses.

    Even with the bangs, you both look great!

  11. Glad you posted that, it reminds me I have to finish scanning my old pics onto CD before they totally fade. lol.

    You still look young! You've aged very well.


Give me some sugar, baby!
