Sincerely 'Fro Me to You - Homecoming!


I know I've posted this pic before, but this seemed like a good week to bring it out again and laugh at it fondly remember. For this week, my friends, is my old high school's HOMECOMING!

I believe I have also mentioned here before that Daughter now attends my old high school. I'm loving it! We've got school spirit out the wazoo around here at the Bubba's Sis house. Well, except for Hubby. He went to my rival high school. I didn't know him then, but still. He's one of them. Back when we were in school, there were only two high schools in the district - his and ours. So of course we were bitter rivals, and even tho there are now four high schools in the district, that original rivalry continues today. And guess who my alma mater is playing for their Homecoming game Friday night? You guessed it! Them!

Twenty-two years ago, I was a senior in high school. I was on the drillteam; my boyfriend was on the football team. And of course, we went to the Homecoming Dance.

I'm diggin' that gold belt. And those matching gold shoes. I believe I'm also wearing some massive gold hoop earrings. I'm sure I carried a gold purse. Ooooooo - shiny!

Tonight was this year's Homecoming parade and pep rally and bonfire - more on that later. Friday night I'll be at the game - just as I was 22 years ago - cheering my team on to victory! I told Hubby he has to either cheer for our team or go sit on the other side with his team. I'll let you know what he decides!

Beat 'em up! Beat 'em up! Rah! Rah! Rah!

Yeah, thats def some sort of Gold Lamae or something. haha

However, at least your "metallic shoe" still rates in todays fashion ;) hahah

Debbie said...

I'm also impressed you could hold up that corsage. That looks like a lot of roses. And it may just be me but the boyfriend's face looks like it is still in development.

Lovin the gold belt and shoes!

Tammy said...

Girl, you got the gold going on! And the corsage is bee-yoo-tee-ful.

I love the gold accents. What a style icon you must have been!

cjh said...

I'm struck by how "adult" this seems but not in the slutty way that teen girls often dress today. You look like a very respectable young lady. How you had them fooled!

Crayl said...

I am amazed by the shoulder pads frankly. Just amazed. Is the skirt lace of satin? I agree with Cjh above, oh and Debbie too on the sheer girth of the corsage, it's amazing.

It's like the Solid Gold dancers, but with clothes on!

Valarie said...

Laura said...

I agree with cjh. Could imagine girls today wearing that much clothing to a homecoming dance? Kids today...

I wonder if you knew my b-i-l! Actually, he was probably two grades ahead of you. My husband and his siblings went to CL.
