Welcome to Week Six of our fabulous segment Flashback Fridays where the old and new collide on everything from books to movies to first loves to favorite vacations. We'll be "flash-backing" on our own blogs, but most of all, we want YOUR participation as well. So, mark Fridays as your blog days to gaze into the past and smile!
First up, I busted out this picture of a Christmas morning from my kiddy days.
Yep, that's right. Not only am I modeling the fantabulous purple Members Only jacket I got, but in the midst of the Barbie van, dolls, and record player, I'm clutching my Mr. T doll from the A Team. I kinda love my expression in the picture as well, don't you? It's like I'm channeling the whole, "I pity the fool taking this Polaroid picture!" I was a HUGE fan of the A-Team, and I had all the dolls. I'm totally bummed I didn't hang on to this one, but you can find lots of A-Team memorabilia at Ebay.
Can we also say I'm super pumped about the A-Team movie coming out in June? I mean, Liam Neesom as Hannibal and Bradley Cooper as Face...AWESOME!!!
Ah, Exhibit B: Care Bears. If you grew up during the 80's, you probably had a Care Bear or two. I had several....and I think I might still have one in the attic. I ended up sleeping with this one for many years, and I still remember the moon on it's belly. Good times. (Pst, I knew you hadn't gotten enough of me rocking the fantabulous Members Only Jacket! LOL)

And here it is....my first ever VLOG! I'm proud that I let my perfectionist side go and just record for the heck of it! And since we'd just done a post on body image, I'm kinda proud that I went au natural in the vlog! Well, it's me after a day of wrestling teenagers in those last, fleeting days of the school year. We have one week left! BOO YAH!I'm thrilled to have held on to these toys all these year--course, having a grammy who is big into antiques and once owned an antitque store, also helps. Everything has the potential to be an antique and shouldn't be thrown away!
As for the video, I have big plans for learning how to edit this summer as well as getting a laptop mic! So, here's the toys of my childhood.......
And just in case, here's the LINK just in case b/c I'm trying to upload this at school, and we have the websense of doom....no Youtube, Facebook, etc.
