Fro Me to You - What WAS I thinking?

 

I tell you I was in deep thought here.  I can't even begin to tell you what I was thinking, because I have no clue.

If I had to guess anything, it would be that I was thinking about the fact that I am 16 and pregnant.  Yep that would be something to worry about alright.

Something else I SHOULD have been worried about was my choice of fashions.  Now that is a problem.  Lets look at this shall we......

(Have ya'll noticed I like to use the phrase "shall we"?  I need to work on that.)

Sorry if you can't read the words on the picture.  No matter how hard I tried I could not get the words from not completely blending in with that wonderfully patterned couch at my Mother-In-Laws house.  No offense Trudy, but I like your new couch much much better.  :)

For more pondering thoughts and pictures run don't walk over to Kristen's place for more Fro Me to You fun!  :)

What did your post say, I couldn't read it because of that couch!

Kidding. Girl, my Sebago shoes were my 2nd favorite shoe....because first would have been all my pairs of Tretorns!!!

Was there really a carousel on your shirt? Please, tell me no.

What? No mention of the white Christmas tree??

We all had horrible sweatshirts. I had one that had a polar bear on it - I thought it was cool. Laws a mercy.

Oh my!!! Thank you for that walk down memory lane and for the laugh this morning!

Brandi said...

LOL~like above you do not mention the horrible (white) christmas tree. LOL jk!

Leigh said...

Cute post!

Robin said...

I resent that comment about the shoes, they were my favorite shoes. I still remember the Christmas I got them because I picked them out and couldn't wait to open them!!!

P.S. He loves you... said...

yes you had much on your mind...and who wouldn't.
Still I bet your one who lives;laughs; and loves allot cause you just know it could be worse!

Jerralea said...

Hmmm... I think one of my sisters-in-law had that exact same outfit! I know she had the shoes.

Ashley @ mrs007.net said...

You are so funny! I think my grandma had that same couch until well....like 2 years ago.

I think you were cute even 16 and preggers and in your carousel sweatshirt. One question. Were those stirrup pants?

Susie Harris said...

I think we all had clothes like that... now I may be sick, hehe. We dress our kids soooo much better these days!

jennifer said...

You know what I am thinking? I am thinking that you went through a tough time and did it FABULOUSLY! I am thinking that you are a wonderful mother and have some GORGEOUS kids! I am thinking that I am SO glad that you are my blog bud!

Great picture Chica. Oh and the couch? Hmm. But it looks GREAT when you are sitting on it.

Can you believe I too had a dozen pairs of those shoes!! And sweatshirts too!!
Aw, 16 and pregnant, that must have been so tough at the time.

Valarie said...

Considering the odds given for 16 year old pregnant girls, I think that you have surpassed them by miles and truly blown them out of the water.

I'm so glad that your m-i-l got a new couch. YIKES.

Rambling Girl said...

Yep I dressed like that also. Oh but the joys of what we have to pay for our childrens clothes today...Lot more than our parents paid. I can remember my Levis were $8.50 and now they are $$$$$$$$.....sometimes I wish I had those years back.

TJ said...

I remember those horrible painted sweatshirts, or even better when they were appliqued and had the metallic puff paint around the edge. The pants were probably nice and comfy for a pregnant lady. I have a friend that lived in those in highschool because she didn't want to tell her parents that she was pregnant and married. She eventually did though, and like you turned out great!

The slouch socks... oh, the slouch socks. I believe this was one sin we all committed, no matter our geography or sense of style.

carrie said...

Yes, that couch was definitely distracting. Thank you so much for sharing though . . .

We are THAT Family said...

Let's talk about that couch...

Shall we?

Muthering Heights said...

It doesn't matter what you were wearing...anything looks better than that couch fabric!!

Shannon said...

Slouch socks! I had forgotten about slouch socks. Your clothes look pretty good compared to the couch, especially with so much on your mind!

The Southern Family said...

I had that same horse sweatshirt, in yellow!

Rhea said...

That couch was pretty bad, I agree.

You are deep in thought. I didn't know you were pregnant at 16. That must have been really hard. I was 19, and that was hard, so I can't imagine 16.

mah-meeee said...

holy couch... i don't think i saw anything else except that couch in the pictures...

if she still has it you should submit it to regis and kelly. i think they do couch contest every year. winner gets a new couch!

marky said...

At first I thought they were Stirrup pants!!
slouch socks leggings.. yep you had it going on! The couch does ring pretty LOUDLY!

D... said...

Bwahahahaha! I did the slouchy socks & knit pants too. Crazy kids we were back then!

Spaceofgrace said...

Ha ha ha I love it! I'm going to have to dig out some old photos for my blogs too :-)
Have a great day!

Carrie said...

Hey check out my blog I left you something!

Birdie said...

I dig yer couch and maybe the deck shoes too if they were in a lighter shade...perhaps a light & dark tan color.

try2bAsunbeam said...

I have a picture that is almost identical! I was 16 and pregnant too! Only I was much chubbier and my head was shaved half-way up. Hey, it was cool back then! I think my dad's couch was similar. It had a nice green pattern! lol
