Sincerely 'Fro me to you...

I dug around for some more old pics of myself
and while they are adorable, they aren't that fro-tastic.

So...*with her permission...

I decided I would post a few pics of my moms hair over the years since I have them conveniently stored on my computer after making a dvd for my grandparents 50th anniversary.


1.The Marcia Brady Look
3.The Farrah Fawcett Look
3.The 'Fro
This makes me think about that line from Steel Magnolias (my favorite movie that I have memorized all the lines from!) where Shelby says about her mothers hair "You just tease it and make it look like a brown football helmet".
4. The 80's perm
Yes, this is a one piece belted....I don't even know what to call this..... jumpsuit?

*I say she gave me permission to post

these b/c she said "Go ahead...you'll be sorry!"

Love you mom!

WOW! You had one hot mama back in the 80's,LOL! I don't remember what those things were called, jumpsuits? All I remember is you had to strip down purt near naked when you had to go potty.

Your mom was stylin'!

I had one of those jumpsuits in the 80's. It was very difficult to visit the restroom in! I'm glad they are out of style.
