Emily's "Back to the 80's" Birthday Blog Hop!

If you are here from Cristine's blog... You are in the right spot to help celebrate EMILY's 'BACK TO THE 80'S BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP'!! 
If not, here's the lineup, and you can start at Emily's blog, and hop through the rest of the fun!!
Emily: http://www.createserendipity.net


I hope that you have had lots of fun on the way. Rather than making something 80's spectacular, I decided to create a page with a fun photo that has been staring at me for quite some time. This photo was special, as it was taken at my grandma's house when I was just a few years old. Notice the very cool Sesame Street sweatshirt, and my sweet kicks. Okay, so they were pretty lame... But for 1982, I was styling!!
Next door to my grandma's house was this wonderful and beautiful horse. The horse was so gentle, that I used to feed it hay and grass. Sometimes my grandma would give me apples or carrots. Best thing... it didn't like my little brother much, so the horse was all mine. Okay, so it was really my grandma's neighbor's horse... but at four years old, I had no clue.
Well, I hope you had fun with my little jaunt down memory lane!! Make a comment, and be in the running to win some fantastic blog candy from me!!!!
1980's blog candy: iRock, because who didn't want a Bedazzler in the '80's?? Rub-ons, the one scrappy item I actually owned when I was little. And '80's colored buttons!!

Happy birthday Emily!! May this year be full of memories, love and best wishes!!

  14. Fun layout, loved the little comment about the horse not liking your brother much and you having it all to yourself. Funny.

    I am sad to see this hop come to an end. I had a great time hopping down memory lane.
