My Mother’s Blood, Sweat, And Tears

“I think I’m somewhere around 10 in this photo, which would put it somewhere in the mid-80s. This hairstyle is the result of curlers left in overnight and a curling iron in the morning, and a lot of my mother’s blood, sweat, and tears. It is little wonder why I had no friends as a child.”

Chopped

“The 80’s were an experimental time for Dad when it came to facial hair. Here he is reading the Cabela’s catalog with my brother. I am not sure what the knife was for. I always wondered if his chin got cold.”

Totally 80’s

“I love this photo because there was no doubt in my mind that I looked absolutely awesome that day. This was my favorite look and I rocked it with zero shame. Incidentally, it would be years before a boy actually liked me, but I was too cool to care.”

It Wasn’t Even Halloween

“I wanted to be a teen model desperately and needed pictures to send to modeling agencies so I had mom take some pictures of me with my three favorite things – black lipstick, stuffed animals and of course Motley Crue. I never got called.”
