Flashback Photos, circa 1988

I will most likely regret posting these pics, but here are some actual photos of me, my sister, our friends Shelly and Jennifer, and some random tailgating friends from a David Lee Roth concert (ouch, I know) circa 1988. OY.


Sister on the left, Shelly (blond) in the middle, I'm the one on the far right that looks like she is ready to hurl.


Some random tailgaters joined our little party and added tequila and vodka to our trunk full of wine coolers.


That's me in those fab acid wash high-waisted numbers.  Nice.


This is my little sister.  She is just fucking great.  She got the looks in the family, but I wouldn't trade hair with her back then.  No way.  


Oh wine coolers.  How disgusting.  But not as bad as Zima.


Sister, Jennifer, me, Shelly.  Good times.

found your blog by way of JoJo. I love your banner photo and the bostom terrier pup.

How was the concert? The photos are great. I had a pair of acid wash jeans that I threw out not so long ago after them being in the bottom of the closet.
