It Was 1997...

Certain things get better with age.

My hair is one of them.

I give you: Our Engagement Picture (i.e. my hair with a perm) 1997


10 years later...


No more perms for me...no more hair for Ben...and boy, do I like it better that way *wink*


You're welcome for that my bloggy friends....you. are. welcome :)

  2. Wow! Except for the hair, you don't look any different - not a bit older! Your hair in your engagement picture reminds me of Chandler Bing's girlfriend Janice from the show Friends ;) I'm sure you sound nothing like her, however!

  4. Oh, sister, I wish I were as brave as you...I have some really doozy pictures that I dare not post. :) I guess the good thing is...we all looked the same back then, right? With the perms, big hair etc...just wait, I'm sure it will all come back in style one day. You look gorgeous no matter what. :)

  6. Um ... what's wrong with that previous hairstyle, madam? I had the same hair and I think I was pretty hot ... okay, maybe not.

  7. You are way cuter, my dear. - just think, in another 10 years you never know how you will feel looking back "10 years ago" on the now picture. :)

    P.S. You look happier, too. :)

  8. You both look fantastic! Not a real fan of the before hairdo, but I'm sure I wanted hair just like it 10 year ago!

  10. Those are great. I think we should all be required to post the hair stages of our marriages. You guys are so cute!

  11. You are so correct on this. Your hair looks way better as is. Take it from a girl who has been stupid dumb enough to perm her hair into tight ringlets TWICE. Honestly. I don't know what came over that second time. It was a DISASTER. And I'm very glad it wasn't in the time frame of engagement or wedding pictures. ;)

    You both have gotten better with age. I mean, time. That's what I meant. Time. Not age. Time.

  12. Happy Anniversary! Today is my parents' anniversary, too.

    You don't look like you've aged a bit. Your engagement photo reminds me of mine...I had the serious perm going, too (1992).

    Hope you & Ben had a wonderful day.

  19. Wow, it is amazing how times change us-- women more than men.

    Why is it that curly haired women wish they had straight hair and vice versa?

  20. I have a prom picture of you from a while ago that you look exactly the same in too (minus the hair). Some things do NOT change.

  21. You were rockin the perm, my friend. NICE.

    My hubby had hair when we were engaged/dating too. Not-so-much anymore.

    We showed Avery a picture of her daddy in high school the other day, and she had NO CLUE who he was.

    Hee, hee..

    Love my bald man!

  27. Love the photos! Thanks for sharing. My Hubby lost all his hair, too. Mine looks exactly the same...no matter what...ever. I hate that about my hair sometimes.
