Throwback Thursday - Birthday Edition!

Boy are you in for a treat today!  In honor of my upcoming birthday this Sunday, I thought I'd put together a little virtual slide show of me over the past 35 years.  Sounds like fun huh?!  Some of these pictures are absolutely ridiculous and I can't even believe I'm sharing them publicly but HERE WE GO.  I only hope the friends who are also pictured in some of these do not kill me.

Kick up your feet, grab a snack and settle in for the good stuff.  Let's go...

Me & my mom!
Year:  1979
Age: 0
Sugar and spice and everything nice...that'd be me!
Year:  1982/83
Age:  Toddler (3 or 4?)
A picture devoted entirely to big hair
Me & my sisters
Year:  1984?
Age:  Kindergarten-ish?
*Note - I had to skip over all of my elementary years here because I don't have any pictures at my apartment.  Those treasures must all be back home at my parent's house.  But I can pretty much sum up those years in two words: GIANT GLASSES.  I wore plastic glasses bigger than my head from 1st grade through middle school.  If I can find any of those pics I'll try to weave them into an upcoming post ;)  Moving on to high school...

Present day!
And there you have it.  It's been a wild ride, filled with some crazy highs and lows along the way, but I think we can all agree on one constant that's been there since the day I was born - THE HAIR!!! My God, the hair. 
Happy Throwback Thursday to you all :)
