way back... wednesday

back when it was "in" to wear mid tops... scarf belts and your pants up to your pits! Back when I actually HAD a waist! :)

Back when Astroworld (Six Flags) was still around in Houston. The Texas Cyclone was my favorite ride! Fast... furious... stomach dropping fun! I actually peed my pants one time... was that TMI? My friend Beth Anne & I were laughing so hard... it was inevitable! What did I do? I don't even remember... did I walk around with wet pants? Seriously... that's nuts!

This was when I was either a sophomore or junior in high school because I am wearing all Limited clothes... I remember those clothes well. I worked there during high school... oh... I loved that job... the awesome discount... it was so much fun! Remember when malls were "the place" to shop! Now... at all cost I try to avoid the mall! Funny!

Happy Wednesday! Our day has started out GREAT! It is after 11am and I am happy to say... I am STILL in my jammies! It feels good to not rush... to take the day as it comes! Awe... what a gift! I am feeling lucky & blessed! Now I'm off to go grab another pig in a blanket and another cup of coffee! :)
cheers & hugs!

5 days to go for me & Annie to stay in jammies, but Jack & Sam made it almost all day...boys are lucky to get to wear boxers!!

How fun is that picture...yes, I loved Limited too!! And look at us all now, not even wanting to bother w/fancy clothing, just jammies!!

Look at you hot stuff! I was a Gap girl -- worked there most of high school. My friend worked at the Limited. We swapped clothes a lot. Between the two of us we looked pretty darn good.

Can't wait to be in jammies all day. My kids aren't finished with school until the June 11th.

I can't believe that you found that photo. I remember the scarf as belts, too.
Have a great day.

I would never have to courage to show pictures of myself - way back when. At least you looked good. I probably looked like a dork comparitively........ great post.

HA! we went to astroworld all the time, funny how that makes me laugh right now. i rode the texas cyclone over and over and over....

Laura said...

Oh my GOSH - that outfit is a trip back in time. I too worked at Limited but the Express side and I had that exact outfit (different scarf belt though). Remember the "tanks" came in different colors and you would wear two of them, like white on the bottom and royal blue on the top? Oh gosh, what a fun time.

I know I had that outfit, too! It looked so good, then. What happened!?? I would have been appalled if someone had given me low rise jeans to wear. :-0
