High School Picture Challenge

Randi’s“Let’s Get Real Monday”Challenge was for everyone to share high school pictures! Here are 4 of me.

The first one is of my freshman year of high school, so let’s see, that would be 1980, I think. It was before I got contacts, a major event in my high school career!

Next comes my senior picture, and a picture at prom in 1985, which I attended with my (now) husband. We met at Christmas-time during our senior year of high school.

Finally, there’s a pix of my best friend and me a year out of high school.

Other people playing this game include Carol at She Lives and I forget who else. In a hurry this AM…..


  1. This is the third challenge I've looked at and seen the same glasses. Just like I had when I was younger!

    I loved transitioning to contacts. Alas, can't wear them since we've moved to the new home… 😉

  2. Great pics!

  3. Fun pictures! Glad you took the challenge! I did too and it brought back good/bad memories. 🙂

  4. Love those wings!

  5. What cute pictures! Mine is up also!
    Thanks for sharing part of your past.

  6. Awww, I love those pictures! The feathered Farrah Faucet hair and all. And the tank dresses then – ahhh so comfy! (I was in middle school then…) Love the pics – you are sooo cute! 🙂

  7. Love the pics. What fun. I have a prom pic on mine too ( as soon as I get the pics uploaded)and mine is also with my now hubby.

    Mine will be up in a bit.

  8. I love these photos.

    Second, I love the blog look.

    Nice work!

  9. Oh fun–you married your high school sweetheart! Your pics are great!

  10. Hey! I married my HS sweet heart, too!! Very Cool!

    And… I Looooove your blog's new look! Love, love, love it!

  11. Those glasses are awesome. I was big on the giant plastic frames, too….

  12. Oh my, I have an almost identical picture to your first one. If we had been twins you would have been the cuter one (I'm not being hard on myself, I would prove it if I could find the picture)but we definitely could have passed for sisters.

    I'll keep looking. That is so weird! 🙂

  13. Oh, this is all so 80's! How cute were you!!

  14. FUN!

  15. I married my high school sweetheart too! And we have the same glasses! Although I graduated a few years ahead of you..1975. I could only find one picture – and that took a lot of digging!!

  16. You were (and continue to be) One Sweet Motha (I mean, Mother).

  17. Oh my, what fun to share old photos. (No, I didn't mean you were old, lol.) Mine are just awful, even my prom picture. I'm going to have to dig them out now.

  18. GREAT photos! Thanks for sharing! Jill

  19. this was fun challange!!!

  20. Oh, I've missed you, Mary! LOVE the pictures, and love, love, LOVE your new header.

  21. I had the same pink dress you have on in your last pic!

    Thanks for sharing!
