89 Rocks

In preparation for my husband's 20th high school reunion next weekend, his parents have been digging around in old photo boxes. There are some great (read: embarassing) photos in there of my sweet man...but this one takes the cake.It was his team photo for wrestling. Gotta love the 80s!

Wow. This is amazing. Your husband must have a great sense of humor to not mind you posting this for all the world to see. :-)

That is painful. Not that I don't have a whole box of my own embarrassments from the Class of '89, but none of them had laser lights in the background. Neon scrunchy socks, yes. But no lasers.

Didn't we all have a high school photo with the laser background? I know that I did! How funny! (I graduated in 1991, so not so far off. At least not far enough to ditch the lasers.)

He looks just like "R" in this picture!!!

That's hysterical. The pose is the best! :) His hair is so much darker in this picture...it kind of reminds me of my husband! Except for my husband was 6'4" and 160 lbs in high school...he looked like a snake!(But I did start dating him at that time so I must have thought it looked pretty good.) This might motivate me to embarass my guy on my spot!

Hilarious! I actually recognize the background. My hubby and I (while we were dating) had our picture made at the local Rite Aid with the laser background. My friends have always given me a hard time about it but it was our only choice. So funny but great memories.

oh my goodness.. the lasers! I graduated in 1990 and of course I have one somewhere that I cannot seem to find (eyes rolling) with the laser background! lol Love it!

wow I was thinking that P, favored him, but It looks like R may grow up and look just like this! How funny....

Love it! I had the exact same background for my 2nd grade Spring Pic. My hair was crimped and I was missing my two front teeth.

The 80's were such a fabulous time in fashion!

I am a new blogger and first time commenter. I just love your blog. Your family is so goregous! I can't imagine what it must be like chasing 3 little ones around. I am excited to be an official blogger and not a lurker anymore! :)

That picture of your husband is hilarious!!!!

Tonya said...

Everyone else noticed the lasers, but I'm wondering if his sweats were pushed up to his knees... Now THAT was fashion!

Yes, I love going back and looking at our pictures from the 80's!!
