Sincerely 'Fro me to you...

I am participating in WE ARE THAT FAMILY'S blog carnival, Sincerely 'Fro me to you!
This is 'La-La' & myself in junior high. (That is not her real name, my oldest daughter gave her that name & that is who she is to our family! So much, that when I refer to her by her real name my kids don't know who I'm talking about!!)
La-La and I met in 1986, in the 6th grade! We were inseparable. We did just about everything together up until I got married in 1996. Including college, parties, and apartments! Even after we both got married and had our babies, we were able to witness the births of eachothers' children.
La-La has always found a way to give of herself, to her family, friends, and community. She is beautiful inside and out. She has always lived her life to the fullest. Striving to do her best in all things.
Now she is a wonderful wife & mommy. And I miss her like crazy. One thing I know 'fo sure....she is woven into my life so tightly, that no matter what she will always be my best friend.
*I am on the right with the 'wave' bangs!! I worked very hard each morning to achieve the height on those bad boys! Gotta love them 80's!?

What a great photo-and the wave bang-well, you achieved greatness with it! I never could get mine that high, what will all the perm-created-curls.

You are also blessed to have such an amazing friendship!

Thanks so much for participating!!

Woo hoo! It is the Buller before braces...I didn't ever see one of them before. ;)

And yes, I too had "the hair" that could touch the sky. Wish I could upload a picture, but I'm techno challenged. Just picture the face framing mane of a lion....oh, yeah, all fanned out and aqua-netted into place!

Woohoo...no ozone left because of my big bad hair days.

I had bangs like that! Mine we a bit more in the center, more like a shark than a wave.
Great picture!

Where are you? I have been missing you at my blog...did you get hair spray in your eyes when trying to replicate those bangs?

As Pedro says..."I like her bangs."

:) Flippin' sweet.
