80's madness

Okay... so I was born in 1979, so I guess I was a child of the 80's- but not really one that remembers or cared about the fashions. I had a brief love affair with neons, slouch socks, and NKOTB in Elementary School that I can recall, but that's about it.

Now... the toys... that's an entirely different thing. I can talk all day about Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Brite (we're actually watching it right now), Carebears, Cabbage Patch Kids, and Popples.

If only William was a girl....

but he's not, so this is what we came up with for his 80's dance.
Pretty funny, since, my Mom had Mtv scrambled from our house until we were about 20.

Just the same, I think William looks adorable!

When he went up to school, one of the little boys asked him why he was wearing a pink hat and William proudly stated, "That's what they did in the 80's, dude!"
What a cutie.

Here he is with his principal.

with his Dad (lover of all things 80's) He actually had a pair of tight, long, white jean shorts still in his dresser when we met in 1999. Those, along with some other choice wardrobe items quickly made it to the Goodwill.

and with me.

Those glasses crack me up. I remember my Dad buying those up for $1 a piece in the late 90's when no one wore them anymore. He had them in every color. We always made fun of him. :)

Again, I have to thank my talented little sister, Megan, for making the MTV applique for me the night before. Thanks Megan!!!!
