my 20th HiGh ScHoOl ReUnIoN is this year!!! (OUCH)

Ok I am so old!!!
My 20 year high school Reunion is in Aug.
I can't believe that I'm almost the big "40" (Well I still have 2 years, but I'm closer to 40 than 35)
BUT......it's ok because I don't feel that old (I think having a younger husband helps some).
Well anyways I was looking through old pics to use in my dad's fathers day video and I came across some of my good old friends.....Our Little GaNg if you will.
Soooooooooo Of Course I have to share some of them. 
BUT.....YOU have to promise not to laugh at us!!!


Top Row left to right ~ Chrystal McCloy (Zueck), Tonia wright (Heseltine) & Stephanie Holbrook (Boehme).
Bottom left to right ~ Bonnie Bardwell (Childress), Theresa Fojtek (Wilcox) & "Me" Tina Burroughs (Wright)

OK GO AHEAD LAUGH!!!!
I know you want to, just remember it was 1988!!!
My friends all look normal then there is me. 
I was going through the "I don't want to look like everyone else" Phase.
I think I get better with age.
Here are some more pics to enjoy at my friends expense!!!



Oh the good old days of High School......
Playin' steal the flag, jumpin the tracks on 6000, getting kicked out of Peter Piper Pizza, snackin' at good old corner 44.
Sluffin' almost daily (it's amazing we all graduated), just hangin out being good friends.  There's nothing like those day's!!!

Oh Tina Paybacks are hell!!!!! I about died when I saw these. And my nick name too. What am I going to do with you. I particularly remember Violent Femms in your T top. Good times.

Swirl Girl said...

'88 = Flock of Seagulls hair.
not your fault. It was the rage back then.

So was VO5 aerosol hairspray.

Jodi said...

Big hair!! Oh how I loved the 80's!! Aqua Net was big then too!

Marla said...

I would laugh if I didn't have pictures that looked just like that! A blow dryer and aqua net at it's best, great pics!

Kimmie0270 said...

Belle said...

I really miss big hair...

Kim said...

My 20th is this year too. I too fell prey to some serious BIG hair issues. Now it looks silly but then ~ it was happening:)

Shanda said...

I was like you...I always looked a little different.

That is too funny!

Amy said...

I just had my 20 yr reunion ( I didn't go, but I am the same age as you) 1988 was the year :D

Tanya said...

Oh that hair! I was a 1987 grad, so I know exactly how much hair spray went into a do like that. Love your blog!

Heather said...

Ah those glorious 80s.... the big hair and the big music... :D

I am from NJ so there really was no choice, my hair wants to be big no matter what I do!

Hope you enjoyed your 20th - mine is coming up in May, eeeeek!

Cheers!

dddiva said...

LOL looks like you have half a flock of seagulls thing going on. Thanks for the giggles- and the memories. Big hair and big ballad music, what more can one ask for?

What A Card said...

Oh, glorious hair! Love it, and how nice that you've stayed friends with all your HS friends.

CanCan (MomMostTraveled) said...

Nice! I can't decide who would win the award for the hair that most defies gravity...

Hot Tub Lizzy said...

I miss hair wings.....

Kelly Deneen said...

That is hilarious! bwahaha!

And you do not look old enough to be having a 20-year reunion!

Mrs. S said...

Happy SITS day! Love the picture at the bottom here...gross...anyway.
I am digging all the hair. I would have been jealous considering in '88 I was a little 2-year-old baldie. ha! Hope your day is sunshiney!

Heather said...

Oh, 80's hair. Aqua Net by the truckload, teasing those bangs until they were a mile high...yes, this post brings back memories. Someday that will be the style again...maybe.

Congrats on being featured today! Love the Twilight banners!

Shelley, aka Diaper Bag Diarist said...

Now that's some hair! I think most of us get better with age. I definitely get better each year!

Melodie said...

Oh, my! WoW! That hair!

It's great that you are all still friends after all of these years.

Melissa said...

That is so funny! I think we all have pictures like that hidden somewhere. Hopefully mine will never surface! What's really funny is at the time we thought we looked awesome, the bigger the better! :)

thotlady said...

Old photos are the best. It links us closely with our past. I like that.

G. said...

The 80's are definitely noted for the hair! How great that you have all stayed friends for 20 years. I loved your video, too. A very sentimental touch. Congrats on your 20 year reunion...I hope it went well for you!

Liz Davis said...

I love the hairstyles. I have 4 older sisters and half of them still have their do's!

Kat said...

I had my 20th reunion this year too. I so wanted to tease my bangs before I went. But I exhibited a modicum of restraint instead :-)

Tabitha Blue said...

I just love that you posted your high school pic for all to see!!! How great are you?!? Confident, that's for sure. ;-)

Rhea said...

Oh, wow, those hair styles are something else. lol LOVE em!!

verygoodyear said...

You definitely stand out in this picture with that mad crazy hair ;) Your kids are adorable, I'm so pleased to have found you via SITS!

nikkicrumpet said...

YAY another fellow Utahan. Well I'm a displaced Utahan living in New England...but my heart will always be there. I love the BIG HAIR....boy do I remember those days! And don't feel bad about your 20th reunion....I'm celebrating my 30th reunion from good old Payson High School!

Crazy Momma said...

I tried really hard not to laugh...really I did...but I couldn't help myself :)

Jenni said...

Crazy hair aside, I love that you still keep contact with your friends. I don't see my friends from high school very often. We sort of scattered all over the country.

Kimberly said...

Oh, I love it...too much fun!

Jennifer P. said...

Oh 80's hair. The scars you have left are so deep :)!

I'm sure your friends will be thrilled with the national attention they and their hair do's are now getting!

Have a great SITS day!

Ronnica said...

I've never been so happy that I missed the brunt of the 80s (I was just a child then).

andrea said...

HAHAHAHAHA...Okay, if you think your hair was out there...I had my head shaved all over to 1/4" EXCEPT for my bangs! Yup, one of those hair-do's!!! hee hee...circa 1987 I think.

Ali said...

Girl, I am SO with you! Mine is in 2 years (class of '90 here). Love the hair. GO BIG SEXY HAIR! (If only we'd had that hairspray then...)

Inspired Kara said...

Hilarious!!!!

Rela Pantaleon-Manigsaca said...

We're up for our 25th next year...and you just gave me an idea for a post in and around that time! I hope I could make it back home to the Philippines for that event!

Z's Mom said...

Awwww....those pics are great! Its good to have such great friends through the years....you are very lucky!!!!

Laurel said...

Hilarious Hair all around. And I had it too! Long time friends are the best ... and they are gonna get you for this!

cricketphx said...

I can so relate to this post! 1987 grad here and I LOVE big hair pictures! NICE!

Simply Stork said...

Boy am I glad my name is not "bonnie" LOL (nice nickname???)

nice "wall of bangs" too...can you tell I graduated at the same time as you???

~simply~

Threeundertwo said...

Happy SITS day!

Blueberry Buttons said...

I remember those hair styles. Oh, those were the days! hehehe
Thanks for sharing, hope you have a good time at your reunion.
Cheryl

Shannon said...

these photos are fantastic!

Debbie Y. said...

I am older than you graduated in '75, so I didn't really have the big hair, but I love the pic of you and all your friends.

Happy SITS day!

Becky :) said...

I love it!!! I so remember those hair days!!! The whole can of Aqua net.
Sounds like you have great friends!!!!
After I read this I thought what reunion would be mine this year, it's been 16 years, but my type of high school doesn't have reunions so I live vicariously through others!!!

Felicia Eis said...

So I can't really relate here ;) Happy SISTS DAY!!!

Jennifer said...

I can so totally relate...my 20th is next year, so my big hair could have given your big hair some pretty major competition!

Emilie Nichole said...

HA! LOVE the hair :)

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

I remember that hair! It was stylin'!

Mama's Losin' It said...

The sweaters are the best part. Oh how I love the sweaters...especially your friends Christmas sweater with the dear across the middle.

Classic.

EmBee said...

Well, that picture explains what happened to the ozone layer.
:-)

Elizabeth said...

I think I might be in that photo, but you can't see me with all the hair!

Kimba said...

Oh that hair is priceless! The memories! Thanks for sharing and I hope you're enjoying your SITS day.

Me said...

Oh the 80's such an era of Fashion Tragedies.

EmmaP said...

hahaha! too funny! btw, tell Jer I said hi!

Andie said...

Great time! Have a blast at your reunion (if you haven't already)!

Hairline Fracture said...

So funny! The '80s were not a good era for hair.

Creative Junkie said...

omg! I'm having flashbacks as I type this.

Fit Me Pink said...

Awww, permed hair and feathered bangs!! The 80's totally rocked! Love the picture too!

Jacie said...

Love the hair. Still laughing because we all had some crazy do in the 80's. I got my first perm back then and the thing didn't grow out completely until the 90's came around.

Mekhismom said...

Oh my! I had my 20th this year. I think we all look alot better now! Happy SITS day!

Michelle said...

Oh, I am SO glad I didn't know you in high school! I'm burying all my old photos so no one else can ever find them. Not that I'm so thrilled about my pictures today either, but ....

Melissa Lester said...

Oh, the days of hot-rolling our hair! I'm sure that sometime that trend will roll around again and we'll be pulling out the hot curlers. I'm just hoping we'll all pass on having bangs that sport a different hairstyle than the rest of our hair! You brought back some fun memories!

Kelly said...

My 20th will be next year...so I have very similar pictures of myself and my friends...so funny!! I love the matching sweaters on the boyfriends/girlfriends!!

Jenni @ nest to keep said...

I remember those hair styles, but I didn't have one of them. I was NOT in style in junior high/high school! But aren't the pictures fun to look back at? You're very brave to put them on your blog~ I think I burned mine! :)

mrsbear said...

Thanks for sharing those. My 20th won't be for another five years, but I'm thinking I'm going to stop aging before that happens.

WheresMyAngels said...

Your hair could actually pass for todays, as for the other girls in the main picture. Nope, totally 80's hair!

Live.Love.Eat said...

Oh, those were the days. That could easily be me and my friends. Our hair was the same!!!

lynn said...

Oh, that hair!! I graduated in 1987. I had mine cute like yours at one time but never got any pics of it. It was a bit longer in the back.

Vicki said...

You are rocking the hair! So was I back then...jack it Jesus!
It's been 15 years for me, and they keep going by faster and faster.
