So on with the post, huh?
As usual, The "A Look Back" series is going full-force!
That means that today we're taking a look back at 1991.
If you haven't joined in on this fun series yet,
I highly encourage you to. It is so much
fun to think back on all those years passed!

I turned  nine years old. 
My family made a big move back down to the Houston area. 

I began the 4th grade. 
I remember... Shane J. was my first real boyfriend that year.
He was the fastest boy in the school. Yall know that was something!
He is still the most polite person I have ever met and I still have the
Valentine's Day card that he gave me back then.
'91 was the year I donned my first punk rocker costume.
There will be a few more down the road.
And I may have passed the punk rocker torch to my kiddos.
Isn't my mama gorgeous!?!

I love this one...because it's proof that I've always been
goofy with my silly faces. Ha!


Pictured below: 
At church with my Grandparents, Aunt, Uncle and bebe Jordan
(who is training to be a minister now, btw)  and my family...
Daddy: making the funny face in the middle
Mom: holding Tracey with her pink bow
Me: in my favorite flowered dress with GIANT puffed sleeves!
Bub: So cute with his little white Bible.
Tia: Cute as ever..possibly wearing a dress made from left-over 80's drapes...


I don't have tons of memories of 1991.
BUT...one of the best...
 is a memory of my entire little family...
the six of us...
Dancing all over the living room together
 to the credits at the end of The Great Outdoors.
It's one of the last memories I have of the six
of us together...happy and laughing.. before the yucky times.

Mmkay...

1990: a look back linky party!

by

It's time to take A Look Back. Dig out your old photos, dust off your old memories and share what you were up to in 1990. Then grab a button [below] and link up either here, or with Shaping Up to Be A MomThe Houtz House Party, or Absolute Mommy. We can't wait to see what you have going on.



I turned 8 in 1990...thus entering my favorite decade. I am a 90's child through and through. I love the music, the clothes, the makeup...all of it. Even though I didn't get to participate in the real 90's grunge era until the second half of the decade, I consider myself a cranberry lipstick, slicked-back ponytail, flannel-wearing, overalls and construction boots kind of girl. Grunge music is part of my soul. And I love me some Salt n Peppa.
So now...onto my eight-year-old-self...along with my CAute brother and sisters.
This is one of the most famous photos of us all. It's early 1990. I loved that sunglasses clip. Back then, I rocked purple. Now days, however, I don't really wear much of it. Aren't my little siblings adorable? Tiffany (in the pink) is the only one who has maintained the blonde hair. The rest of us are now sporting some brunette locks.

 
Summer
I love it
This photo was taken at a family reunion. Last month, I talked about these awesome get-togethers. Sheldon was absent then...his arrival in '90 completed the Hearron family (for the time being.) He made the 12th grandchild for my Papa Bill and Grandma...whose, by the way, birthday it is today!! Happy Birthday Grandma! I love you. 
Anyways... Sheldon is the little bebe on the very left eating his hands. My brother is the cutie in the white shirt on the ground. Tiffany is the blondie- top right in the pink, Tracey is the toddler on Papa Bill's knee with the pig tails and the red & white jumper... and I am the super cool, brace-face in the purple and white striped shirt next to grandma. 

Which reminds me... I had braces in 1990. Just two brackets...on my top two middle teeth. I liked to change out the bands and sport different colors all the time. Mom wasn't happy when I chose the black and lime green ones...just in time for the family church photo. Haha! 
And here we all are again at that same family reunion. I'm the one next to the giraffe's head, sitting in the pink inner tube. Fun. That's Uncle Mark back there on the bench rocking a late-80's mustache. Ha!
