“My brother and I in the late 80s. Clearly missing band practice for any reason was not an option.”

“It was a typical 80’s Christmas morning. Dad must’ve been on Mrs. Claus’s nice list. I’m probably freaking out at my sister who is off camera.”

“My grandma use to run a salon In Hawaii in the 80s around the time Tom was filming Magnum PI, and he would get his haircut there. She was able to have us meet him when we came to visit. (I was 2 yrs old at the time).”

“So grandma brought all the grandkids together and decided to make these great screen-printed shirts for all of us. Don’t know why she thought she was so ‘super’ with only four grandkids.”

“In Nebraska in the 1980’s, they didn’t just have just regular beauty pageants, they had special pageants for Queen of the Cows. I received a stunning faux crown to place on the felt cowboy hat of my choice, and a $200 gift certificate to my favorite western store to purchase my new glitzy outfit. The handmade blue suede leather sash had to be returned. As you can image, I was the talk of the town.”

“My checklist for leaving the house: plastic visor? Check. Awkward goggles? Check. Pink plastic Swatch watch? Check. Michael Jackson-style glove? Check. Outfit purchased at the thrift store? Check. Self esteem much higher than situation warrants? Check. ‘I’m ready, let’s hit the road!'”

“This is me in my bedroom, with puffy Ralph Macchio-style hair, in the industrial loft that I grew up in (hence the water pipes and asbestos ceiling directly over my head). This photo perfectly encapsulates my world at the time, which was MTV and Ricky Schroder.”

“This is a picture of my breakdancing club. It’s origins are from Bellerose Queens, NY. It’s the late 1980s when breakdancing was a thing. If this doesn’t qualify as awkward IDK what does.”
