The 80’s

Thanksgiving Meltdown

“That’s me with the curls. Apparently not being allowed to stay at the table was enough to warrant a complete meltdown at the family Thanksgiving meal. Everyone else is doing a great job of ignoring me.”

Fight For Your Right To Party

“I threw a party while my parents were away. It was the 80’s, so big hair was all the rage, along with cutoff shirts, off-the-shoulder shirts, and partying like there’s no tomorrow. Humidity mixed with my naturally curly hair made for this wonderful look.  The White Castle container on the table was a nice touch.  My parents sure made a statement with the decor.”

Merry Christmas, Dad

“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.”

Styling The Magnum

“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).”
