Take Me Back Tuesday & Flashback Friday

Christmas 1995?

This photo was in with the ones my husband's grandmother had given me.  I stumbled upon that envelope of photos last week.  This photo was taken at his grandparent's home.  From the bag and the Planters Cheese Balls (miss those, wish they never discontinued them) container in it, I would say this was Christmas of 1995.  Jeff & I started dating in October of that year.   We look so young.  Actually we were.  I was just 22 (my b-day is in Nov) and Jeff was not quite 22 (his is in March).  My hair was so long and curly...that is my natural curl.  I am wearing a sweater that used to be my sister's and she had given it me.  Jeff needed a haircut.  Funny story...I loved Friend's and wanted to see if I could make Jeff's hair flatten and go forward like Ross' hair.  I put GOBS of gel in his hair and it did not work.  Man, Jeff was a good sport...his hair was sticky and yucky...what boys do for girls they love.  We laugh about how ridiculous I was for trying that now.  Ahhhh...to be young and silly.



Don't forget to enter my Giveaway for Tuesday, here and that for every children's bracelet I sell in my shop this week 100% of the sale will be donated to the Tuesday Whitt Foundation.

Cute shot! I bet you have lots of fond memories from back then. I was still in high school in 1995. The nineties were a lot of fun.

Thanks for stopping by the Healthy Moms!

Oh what a great memory!! I miss the Cheese Balls too! And back then, I was watching 30 Something! I always look back and think how young we looked too!

So many great memories in that one photo. I wish I had some (any!) of Shane and I before we were married.

I love looking back at pictures, I really want to jump aboard this meme!

Why did they discontinue those Planters Cheese Balls anyway? You guys look to cute and that is hilarious, did we all love Friends or what? The very last episode aired when we were in Jamaica a few days before our wedding. All of a sudden all the girls were missing. It turned out they went up to the room to watch it. Yes, I would have probably gone with them if I would have known.

BTW, I tagged you with a photo tag at http://flyinggigglesandlollipops.blogspot.com/2010/05/photo-tagged.html

Love your story that went along with this photo flashback! ...I love those Cheese balls! I had no idea that they were discontinued! ...maybe cuz I've been trying to eat healthier...or more likely cuz I am clueless! When were they discontinued?

Blessings & Aloha!
