Blast from the Past

Fia, I'm hoping you LOVE this post!

Okay, so did I tell you that my parents are moving to California? Well, they are and it's bittersweet. I cry every time I think about it. The last few days I've been helping my sweet momma organize her closets and jewelry boxes. Well, what did I find?

Ha, a treasure trove of our old earrings! Fia and I had quite the collection from Claire's and Avon, HOLLA! Truth be told, I don't remember what were hers and which ones were mine. Fia may have a better memory; she used to get SO mad at me for stealing her earrings. It was so fun going through them all; I totally plan on rocking these bad boys this summer at the community pool! Man, back in the day I remember walking down the halls of Dixon Middle School thinking I was "totally fly" in my:


Dollar Sign Earrings!!

Or these:

Ha, and what about these beauties:

Check out the broach!!!!

Please tell me that we weren't the only ones with all this fly gear!!  What treasure from your past is hiding in your closet?

LOL! You can't post hilarious stuff like this for me to read when pregnant. Remember me just recently telling you about my bladder problems...and having a hard time holding it in when I cough, sneeze, LAUGH, etc. Shame on you sissy! What got me the most was the broach...LOL! I totally remember pinning that to my button up shirts! Ha ha ha!

PS...I'd like my dollar sign bling bling earrings back please. I have a hot date this Saturday with my mustache man, and those earrings will go perfect with my attire at the wedding :)

Sorry your folks are moving! That would be crummy, but you'll have an excuse to head out there and visit them, right? Thanks for the post, it made me laugh.

By the way, these were my earrings, not yours. I remember loaning them to you and Fia to wear, but I bought most of them from Avon.

MOM! You bought them for us...didn't you? Haha! Go to show that you don't really own anything when you're a momma.
