Time Traveler!!

When I thought about all the time periods I'd love to visit [and omg, there was a LOT of them!], I kept thinking about my parents and the time they grew up in. The 1950s!!

My mom and dad met in 1959 when she was 15 and he was 21. I know, right? LOL My grandparents weren't thrilled with the age difference, but my dad fell hard for my mom. My mom seemed to just dig his car.

But that's pretty much how I chose my dates too at 15, so like, I guess things weren't much different in the 90s, huh? :)

The 50s - Car

[Uh...yeah, my 50s pics kind of span the decade. Don't be hatin'.]

I would love to go back in time and meet my parents. But I'd also love to run around in fluffy skirts, saddle shoes, and be able to walk around downtown checking out the record shop. Then I'd run over to the diner to swoon with my friends and drink chocolate malts and giggle over being asked out to the sock hop.

The 50s - Record Shop

Of course, knowing me, I'd be a nerd in school and actually enjoy it. I'd know all the capitals of the 48 states, even! Unless it was 1959, and I'd be trying to remember the newest states.

But according to this pic, I'd still be pretty popular, considering I'm showing a little too much leg and a little too much cleavage. Hey, I don't want to be an old maid at 19!

The 50s - School

And to complete the challenge, one of my favorite songs of the 50s, and lord, there are a LOT of favorites I have!

I can't wait to see everyone's challenge posts!!!

Love it!

Especially the Ricky Nelson - reminds me of Sunday nights as a kid, my parents playing all their old 12"'s and dancing around our living room :-D
