All the Way Back!

Friday Photo Flashback

Alicia from More than Words hosts this fabulous meme! What do we do? We get out all those crazy, 80´s and 90´s Photos, scan them and then share. I am still debating about sharing some of those. They maybe too scary to share! Do you dare to flashback?

My boys and I started some flashback posts on their blog too. I have been reminiscing their baby days.

But today, I think I will. Why not?

I think I will go all the way.

YES, ALL the WAY back...

to those high school days of my own.

This is my cousin and I, my Junior year of high school. ( I think)

In my little town, we had a pagent for the Apple Blossom Parade. Every year my school would pick the most poised, intellectual and pretty girl to be the Apple blossom queen, who would get to ride on a float through the parade. (oh brother) But it was fun and nerve wracking for a poor hick girl like me. This dress was not picked out by me. It´s actually the same dress I wore as my Aunts bride´s maid.

(btw.. I was not the queen but did get to ride on the float as lady in waiting and as Miss Congeniality.)

(Btw... My home town was a little bitty town in the North of Hickville with all of 100 kids in my graduating class)

For those into fitness, my Fitness Friday Post is right below.


  1. DaniJoy!! How cute are you!!!! How fun to ride on a float!!!

    Have you ever seen the movie Miss Congeniality???? Really funny!!

    Thanks for joining in this week!! I'm going to add you to Mr. Linky!!!

  2. So glad that you posted this picture. Isn't it so funny how styles have changed?

    You look adorable!!

  3. Okay, so I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out what we used to call that dress style: I keep wanting to say GunneSax or Jessica that right? I always wanted one, but never went to a high school dance, so it was not to be. I think you look cute and I'm not surprised you were Miss Congeniality!

  4. yeah, Erin, I think it was a Jessica McClintock, actually! jeje.. thanks!

  5. Awww, aren't you guys sweet in your dresses? So pretty!

    Hey, my son only had one person in his graduating class....but then, he's homeschooled, lol!

  6. Well, girl..... that is some dress.... ;). It is so funny to me to see all these prom dresses that everyone is posting because I never saw those here in Spain. No the proms, no the dresses.... I think I am glad though ;)
    ......... no!!!! you guys look too cute!

  7. No Prom for me either. Just a silly Pagent! I debated about going to my prom but opted out.

  8. Great photo! Isn't it fun to look back to the past sometimes?!

  9. You look so cute...and Miss Congeniality is nothing to sneeze at!

  10. Wow...look at that dress!!

    But it was all the rave back then, wasn't it!!

    I had one similar that I borrowed from a friend once to go to church. I didn't own a dress...!!! I was 16.

  11. Well, I got several phone calls last night, and by the time I was done I didn't feel like cleaning the bathrooms.

    So, guess what I'm going to do today! I usually clean them every day but didn't do it this week so they're due for a cleaning!

  12. BTW, can your blog be translated into Spanish? Because if it can I want to tell our friend's wife about it.

    She is the one I told you about from Columbia. She is a sweetie and I think she would enjoy your blog.

    Do you know of any spanish-speaking Christian blogs that she might enjoy?

    She is learning English so really needs a Spanish one.

  13. I love the photos, Dani Joy! Thanks for sharing. You all are such a fun and happy family! Have a great Lord's day! :)

  14. Love the picture! Too cute! I can definitely see you winning Miss Congeniality!

    Take care my friend!
    Hope you are having a great weekend!

  15. What a fun post. Any by the way, you are way too cute. I love the late 80s and early 90s. Hey I even love the big hair, those were the glory days!
