Flashback Friday


Just curious...do you think of bloggers in groups?  I find that if I think of one blog to visit, the same two, three, or even four will come to mind to visit as well.

Maybe it's because I met one through another; they collaborate regularly on a meme; or the blog authors just seem like good friends.

There are also some days I associate with blog activities, though I don't always participate in them consistently, depending on what's on my plate. I like the blog hops, but if I don't have time to hop around, I won't sign up for the day. Friday, I associate with four things, three hops that I have visited pretty regularly since they started, and now Camille's Flashback Friday.

Last week was the first time I participated in Flash back Friday, and I think I like it so much because I get to go through old photo albums. My husband has TONS of old pictures that his mom has given him over time, and I love to flip through them. I, on the other hand, only have one small photo album from my childhood, but in it are my mom and dad's wedding pictures, my beloved grandparents (on both sides), and pictures of me and my half brother together. Everyone in the album except me and my mother, has passed, so while it's a little album, it's still very special to me.

In it are about (5) photos of me at various stages throughout childhood. All of the pictures in the little album are getting old now, with little spots forming, yellowing, and fading. The one I've posted today shows some very crooked bangs. My first thought was I must have gotten into the scissors, but then I remembered my mom always cutting my hair, and never getting it straight. People used to tease her about it, so I'm guessing that's what was going on here too. No idea how old I was, but the chubby little arms made me laugh.

The picture's getting old, faded, spotted, and stained...it def. qualifies as a flashback photo because believe you me, it was taken a loooooooong time ago. ;)


You can link up here, if you'd like to hop along. Thanks for hosting, Camille!

  1. SO adorable, and your mother did a better job than mine I promise you! I remember one 'shag' hair cut where one side was almost 4 inches shorter than the other. Oi!

    1. LOL! I wanted a shag haircut in the worst way, but reflecting on who probably would have been giving it to me, and laughing at your story, maybe I'm lucky I never got one. ;)

  10. I always like visiting Camille's flashback Friday, but have never linked up to them. I was inspired by yours last week and have been thinking about pulling up some old photos and giving it a whirl soon. I've just been swamped with other blogger obligations lately. Maybe next week or the week after :)

    You were a cutie pie when you were little, but then again you still are lol. :)

  11. It is always pleasant to stroll down memory lane, to view old photos and see faces from the past, relive the moments again in our thoughts.
    Thanks for sharing the sweet photos of you as a child and giving us a glimpse back into time. . . a special time. . .your time. :)

    1. We've still got a couple of weeks left, but the atmosphere is already getting exciting w/things and activities being planned.

      Good luck w/your end-of-the-school-year wrap up. I bet it can get hectic. :)

  15. Aaaw...Cute photo! I've never done a Flashback Friday post, but they're always fun.
    And yes, I do think of bloggers in groups, and blog events in groups too. There are so many hops that I love to visit, but sadly, I haven't been able to play in lots of them lately. Busy schedule. But we'd love to have you over at Meet & Greet, if you've got the time. =0)
    Have a great weekend,

  16. That's a sweet photo.

    I haven't done the Flashback Friday one, but I do the Wordless Wednesday, sometimes do the Creative Monday one, used to do the Rural Thursday and made up my own Sing, Sing a Song Saturday.

    1. I was just thinking I should scan the few I do have. I probably will do that soon. :) If you have a lot, there are places that will scan them for you (if you're not scared to part with them for awhile, which I'm thinking I might be).

  23. You know... You just can't beat going through old family photos. The memories are worth the "price of admission."

    Enjoyed, have a great weekend, Slu

  28. Were you the baby of the family? I too have a teeny tiny photo album from my childhood. I think by the time I came along the novelty had MORE than worn off. Nowadays when my grandnephew comes over I'll take fifty digital shots of him in one evening.

    1. I was kind of an only child (I had a half-brother from my dad's first marriage, but I rarely saw him). So, my grandma had tons of pictures. When she passed they went to my mom.

      And you're right, digital changes everything! We have SO many pics of all the kids, but I love it. :)

  29. Cute picture! I love it when a photo is stained or faded, it gives it character!

    1. Sometimes... if it's not too much of either. Fading is the big problem w/hubby's old photos. Probably time to scan (overdue, actually). :)

  30. Oh, what a cute photo! I might have to join in this hop sometime. :)


    I also think of bloggers in groups.

    Have a fantastic weekend!

  34. So cute! You look so happy :) And the bangs are really pretty trendy, if you think about it. And mad props to your mom for being brave enough to cut them. I'd be scared to death to touch my kids' hair, lol.

  36. Interesting question at the beginning - I have pairs - one blog that makes me think of another. I'm gonna have to keep Flashback Friday in mind for random flashbacks. As you know I can go there and I have plenty of photos. Love yours!

  37. Ooh child, you are adorable! :)
    And seriously how can mommy get bangs straight when y'all be shifting all over :)

    I cut my son's hair now and tis the same thing. but hey, soon he'll balk and I'll let go :D

    Love the flashback!

  38. What a cute picture! And that's what my kids' hair would look like if I tried to do it myself ;-)

    It's funny you mention that you originally thought you cut your own bangs...I actually did that when I was maybe 4? I'm sure my mom has pictures somewhere :-)

    1. My daughter had hair down the middle of her back, beautiful long platinum blonde hair. She took one huge hunk right out of the middle in the back (up close to her neck) and it all had to go, sigh, lol
