I rock overalls!

There are so many reasons for me to love my best friend Randi.

One came two days ago when she sent me the following e-mail:
"Happy 90210 day to my best good friend! I just noticed that it is 9.02.10. And you are the only person who would appreciate it like I did. Its early and it gave me the giggles! And made me want black tie cheesecake........"

Randi and I watched 90210 like it was our religion. Every Wednesday night we would go to Olive Garden and get soup, salad, and bread sticks to go (along with two pieces of black tie cheesecake). We'd take it back to Randi's house and watch 90210 and Melrose. Yes, we're that old. We felt a special connection to the 90210 gang because they, like us, graduated high school in 1993. Ah, memories! Good times people, good times!

As if that wasn't enough of a trip down memory lane for one week, I got an e-mail from her this morning with the subject: Are you wearing overalls? I wasn't sure what to make of it and I thought she was asking if I was wearing overalls today (I am not by the way). Then I saw that the e-mail came with two attachments. And that is when I fell out of my desk chair laughing. Pictures. From 1998. And yes, I am in fact wearing overalls:

Those are my Express overalls that I remember well and wore often. I wish I still had them because wouldn't they be awesome for a 90's party sometime...or perhaps a square dance. I am dancing in the picture, that's not how I stand. Nice moves Jenn, nice moves!

And just to top it off, she sent one of Shaun and I together.
There are so many things wrong with this photo but it made me laugh so hard. First, I am wearing some sort of name tag. I do not remember this night (I'm guessing drinks were involved) and have no idea why I would need a name tag (we were at Randi and James' house). That shirt doesn't show off my overalls enough. The stripes take away from the genius that is the overalls. My hair? I won't even go there. Then there is the goofball standing behind me. Yes folks, that's the man I married. In fact, we got engaged just a few short months after this photo was taken. What can I say? He is a sucker for overalls.
I love you Randi! Thanks for giving me a HUGE laugh today!

I blame Melrose for my failing human phsyiology in college -- it was on at the same time as I was supposed to be in class. Larry G. failed, too, but I don't think Melrose was the reason. =) We took a different class the next quarter (that counted for our biology requirement) and we both passed. LOL

I miss my overalls sometimes...all 5 pairs of them! HA!

I love your overalls! They were popular when I was in high school in the '70's. Must be just about time for them to come back into fashion!

I rocked the overalls too! I actually had a very similar pair with the zippered pocket. 90210 was the best, I graduated in 95, just a few years younger than

You are so much fun and I wore overalls all the time too, as well as overall shorts!!!!

I just saw two pairs of overalls in my closet the other day and I STILL can't part with them. Mind you, I'm not wearing them, but they could be good costuming some day!
