So I am Finally participating in CherrioButt's Peek Inside Me Weekly!

My favorite subject! How I met my Hubby.

The year is 1991 --

Z.Cavariccis are hot (I however am shopping at Kmart much to my embarrassment)

New Kids on the Block love is coming to an end

M C Hammer "you can't touch this" is coming and so are the parachute pants!

Banana clips and slouch socks (in layers) are cool

and I looked like this --

Yeah - I got strange looks for that shirt then too! But it was my favorite one!

The girl in the picture with me is my friend Heather (yes we were The Heathers - remember that movie??)

On the first day of high school , she drags me into the building telling me I just HAVE to meet this boy with the CUTEST ears! Yes, his ears! They got all red when he would get embarrassed - she found this adorable - for me, she wasn't interested in him.
SO, she pulls me into school (apparently she had told him she had a girl for him) and calls him from down the hall.

He sees us coming, AND RUNS THE OTHER WAY!!! Oh yes he did!!! Eventually he came over to meet us....

Adorable isn't he??

And as proof that I WAS adorable back then......

Yes that is a BLACK AND WHITE TV (and I had to walk 6 miles to school uphill in the snow, both ways......).

We dated on and off - and had our first kiss on the soccer field outside the school... Sweet I know...

We have had our ups and downs, breakups and other "loves" but we had our very own Happily Ever After on June 6th 1998

BANANA CLIPS! Yes ma'am. I'd forgotten all about them.

Sweet, sweet story - and you know what struck me as funny? The size of that cordless phone your hubby is holding. My parents had one like that, and OOOOOH I thought it was the coolest thing. Sort of like cell phones in bags - remember those?

I will now be singing "Can't Touch This" for the rest of the night.... :-)

Very sweet. My hubby and I met at the end of high school, when we were both working at McDonalds and I needed a date for prom. :)
