"Mistletoe Lane"

Cori and I were decorating for Christmas a few weeks back. I have like 3 boxes full of Christmas stuff. And, in one of the boxes, I found this darling 5x7 Christmas Photo frame black with gold stars around it. Inside, I found this beauty...


There are no words for this photo. My excuse is that is was the 90s! This is Highland High School's Winter Formal 1995! Yikes. Here's the really tragic part. I was voted the Best Dressed of my high school, so this WAS apparently as good as it gets. My date was Steve Critchfield who got voted "Class Clown"... what can I say, I've always liked them funny!

Whew... that's rough! But, funny! (So, that's what my real hair color is?!? - I almost forgot).

This photo is now proudly displayed on our counter!

Nice tights!!! Isn't it funny that we once wanted white legs? I think I also had a pair of those same black mary-jane type of shoes. Man, I love the 90's, well... not really.

I love it.

Ali, If only I could have been there. I love it. The best part is that I have some exactly like this. I can remember feeling so beautiful in some of the outfits like these...

Oh my goodness!!! This is such a crack-up, and for the record I have always loved this picture - you two look like you could be on the cover of magazine (in the 90's of course...) Actually, I think the dress is darling. Would that be okay still without the tights?? I never was any good at fashion.
