We love the 80s!

QUICKIE: Vincenzo: “Mom, I’m a guitar.  Strum me!”
Remember the 80s?  So do I.  So does my friend in this flowered bridesmaid dress. 


So did the bride, apparently, because this wedding actually took place in 1994, but I guess no one sent her the memo about New Year’s for, like, 10 years in a row.

Anyway, when I got ahold of this picture I knew I had to share it with the world.  Now it’s up to you to decide which of my blog readers is in the picture.  I’m going to list 10 people who leave comments on my posts and you can guess which lucky one has this memory of her past.  I’m too lazy to add their links but if you’re serious about winning you could look back at their comments and visit their sites to do some research.

Prize…prize…what to do for a prize.  I could give away my car; or my next-born child; or how about my third-in-line spot to talk with Verizon?  I think I’ll settle on my recipe for chocolate chip cookies.  The recipe will change your life and make you a hero among men.  I’m not exaggerating.

  1. You mean I’m the only one that can see the picture? Too bad, the answer is so obvious too. Unfortunately, I won her cookie recipe a long time ago so it’s not worth my effort to type out the answer. But I must tell you that, yes, it will change your life, and your neighbor’s lives and your waist line. It is that good. And I don’t even like cookies.

  2. And I love that there was fluorescent (I can’t be spelling that right) lighting. It must have been so flattering to have all the couples’ pictures make them look dead. I wish I could get that wedding planner’s name. But I guess I probably couldn’t afford them, anyway. I know expensive when I see it.

  3. I have to say it looks a lot like the dress my mother FORCED me to wear to Confirmation – and that was in 1992- and no, nobody had given her the 411 about it BEING 1992. Moms are like that though. Have you noticed a certain age group that refuses to give up nylons? It would be appalling to put BARE feet right into your shoes, or actually show your not “taupe” skin.

  4. I leave it to you all to ponder what horrid fashion faux pas we will be doing in public when we are older.

  5. I’m guessing Casey and despite the bride’s promises that she will be able to “wear the dress/ensemble” again, I bet this particular beauty dropped the dress off at Goodwill on her way home from the reception. Or maybe that is just something I would do.

  6. Did anyone else notice the hairy hillbilly in the photo? Does he have a pink cummerbund and purple pocket square on?

    I don’t any of the other commenters so I’m going to call one out that hasn’t commented yet – Tricia.

  7. I’m going to guess Corey because no one else has. I really need a good chocolate chip cookie recipe. Andy keeps a ranking and I am not on the top of the list.

  8. Rachel,

    Feeling kinda like highschool when I got left off the class t-shirt…I have no idea who it could be, but I’ll take a guess and IF I win I will let you come to Mom’s and make me the cookies…is it Mc Streamy?
