Flashback Friday: Circa '97

I got back late last night from Portland. I'm actually quite grateful because I didn't have to look very far for an inspiration for Flashback Friday.

These two:

AKA Romeo and Juliet, Antonio and Melanie, Bonnie and Clyde, Lizzy and Darcy, or whatever you want to call them.

Darcee and Brent - High School Sweethearts. Does anyone know any of those anymore? Do they even exist?
Oh yes they do.

When I was in elementary/middle/junior high school I thought Darcee and Brent were the hottest couple since Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. I knew they were going to get married. Which is why I had to post this pic. While its clear that Darc and Brent are ridiculously good looking, they were also West Valley's Golden Couple. No lie.

Isn't that exactly what this picture depicts?

It was so nice of Brent to lend Darc a pair of his pants for their dance, especially since the pair he lent her doesn't have any holes.
But wait! His generosity doesn't stop there. Why not lend my super sexy gf a see-through wife beater and adidas slip-ons.

Nothing says love like matching outfits.
But nothing says true love like trashy matching outfits. I always knew Brent was a good guy.

Of course, Darc couldn't let it be a one sided relationship, so she offered to bring silver gangster chains and two of her Dad's sweaty bandanas.

Who cares if they didn't quite hit the theme of the dance with a nail on the head? I'm assuming its something like, "Weekend in the Hamptons, West Valley Style."
Goldfish cutouts and a scrubby life vest are exactly how people in Yaktown would interpret the Hamptons.

I love these two. A lot has changed for them since High School but they are still a match made in the Hamptons, I mean Heaven. If they can make it past these hideous outfits/hair, they can make it through anything. A fact I know they have proven the past year during Keith's chemo and radiation treatments.

I guess the moral of this story is, "If you're hot your hot. If you not, you're still hot."

Laughing ridiculously hard right now. I might pee my pants. Thanks for an embarrassing kick-off to my weekend! Aren't I still immune to flashback Friday?
At least I used to think I was cool. Now I know the truth. Those pants bring a whole new meaning to the word hideous!
