Flashback Friday, on Thursday!

I cannot believe I am posting before midnight on Thursday. I am ahead of the game (I also can't believe the font color is weird but I've been there before and we all know that I have no idea what happened) Anyway, back to my story, as most of you know, we are in the process of getting new carpet (Hooray!) and I have been a clean out maniac. I have been going through everything we own and of course and finding treasures (actually more like trash) with a few treasures thrown in. I am a saver of things - almost all things and the girls are quite distressed about it - someday all of these wonderful things will be theirs to sort :D One of the treasures I found was Greg's leisure suit - yes I said leisure suit - circa 1976 - and it is PEACH! How lovely! We convinced Chad to model the outfit and I know he wanted to take it home with him.
How fetching! and a pretty good fit, too. I just have to add here that there were also a couple of plaid bell bottom pants and they were too tight for Chad - can you believe it?
I thought I would include a picture of a young couple from way back when -really just to prove that, yes, Greg could get into that suit. I can't believe I let the shirt get away, what was I thinking?!

And what a treasure you found!! Love it :0) That's such a cute picture of you guys too, Mandy looks just like you!!

Oh yeah, just a helpful hint about your weird text color, it's including your text in the link to your picture. If you hit the space bar a time or two then start typing back at the top of the post it should fix it :0) Anywho, hope that helps ;0)

I wish I could get some new carpet & while you're at being the clean-out maniac, can you make your way over here? No treasures to be found, but you can spend the days on the beach & clean out my attic in the evening?! I've got the perfect spot on the beach ready and waiting.

Oh! And what a lovely couple you two make in that last photo!

That is such a great picture of you and Uncle Greg! Gotta love those days of leisure suits and bell bottoms! lol I really enjoy your "flashback" posts!

I really can't quite believe that Dad ever owned a pair of pants that Chad cannot squeeze into! :) Love the post, you and dad are super cute!!!

Mandy said...

Too funny, I am sure that Chad will love the fact that you posted that picture, and I also think it is funny that some of dad's pants were to tight. I particularly think dad thought it was great!

awe this is cute! I am very amazed at how your girls look so much like you. I guess I knew all along that they looked like you, but geez! It's almost identical! :D
