I Totally Stole This From The Pioneer Woman

Fun loving gal that she is, The Pioneer Woman posted the pictures of herself that she created at She urged her readers to try it, and I did. It was a blast. I hadn’t had that much fun since the hogs ate my little sister. I don’t know what that means, but Hubby says it all of the time, so I'm stealing that, too. I'm in a thievin' mood. It was so much fun I’m ripping off the idea and posting my pics, too. Are you ready for this? 1958.

Yikes! I look a whole lot like my mother there.
How about 1964, the year I was actually born? This one makes me look like my Aunt Margaret. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I think. I kind of like 1968. I was four years old then, visiting the beauty shop once a week with my mom and eating Hostess fruit pies and drinking Dr. Pepper while I waited for her to get her hair backcombed and teased. Ah, good times. Good times.

1974 isn’t too bad. I think I actually had this hairdo in 1974, even though I was only ten years old. Come to think of it, I have this hairdo now. Hmm.
Ah, the eighties, a great time for hair. Big hair. Really big hair.

1984. Who DIDN’T have a perm back then? Anyone? That’s what I thought. Everyone had a perm and a pick and they knew how to use them.

Skip forward to 1990..still big hair. By the way, is anyone besides me missing stirrup pants? No? Never mind. Let's just move on to 1994 then. My hair actually looked pretty similar to this at one time, as well.

Now, it wouldn't be fair to show you all of these without posting my real senior yearbook picture. (Don't even ask for the freshman picture. I'm not going there.) Here you go. Get ready to smile. Oh, feathered bangs and peter pan collars, how I loved you so!

My oldest daughter sent her pics about 2 weeks ago. They were just a funny as everyone else's.
Peter Pan collars? Oh, how I love Peter Pan collars.
You are cute in all of those. How old were you when you graduated?

There is something for you at my place.

Oh your real picture is so much nicer! LOL!

And I will have you know that I did not have a perm in the eighties! (My hair was naturally that way! Ha Ha!) Seriously everyone always thought I had permed hair because it was so curly. I do admit to spending ages blow drying that fringe to get it just the right height though!
