Welcome

Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

Tackle it Tuesday Leg Warmers?


Tackle It Tuesday Meme


I'm tackling the grass this week. The front yard is nicely manicured with perfectly mowed rows that make me so happy. I finished mowing in the moonlight last night. The backyard is not so perfect. With all the rain that we have had, the grass is nearly to the bottom of the trampoline. I kid you not! I'm not sure how I am going to tackle this so I thought I would talk about something more important...like leg warmers.



Is it me or have the 80's returned to the fashion world? I almost hate to type this, but leg warmers are back! Seriously, people. They are selling them in stores. Check these out and these too! Or these:


It makes me want to dust off my skates, find my rainbow colored leg warmers, pop in a little Olivia Newton John Xanadu or my Flashdance record, and back comb my hair 80's style. We were stylin' back then! I think this look could much improve my guitar hero abilities!

Oh, I'm kidding. I really didn't think leg warmers would come full circle but here they. Yes, girls, I wore the originals with my Gloria Vanderbilt jeans and my Mork and Mindy suspenders. That was hot! :-)

I don't think I'll run right out and purchase a new pair. What about you? Are you going to sport the new/retro look? I want to see pictures if you do!

Joyfully,

Kristi

If we had any sort of a winter I would be sportin them baby! Woot Woot! I loved the 80's I don't think there was ever such a time to grow up lol. I remember watching Xanadu. The ending I thought was kind of stupid lol. I loved Mork and Mindy. Nanoo Nanoo! Thanks for the flashback my sister!

Well, I am with you on this one. I think the only time I really wore leg warmers was for drill team. And I really don't want to repeat that experience.
I am proud of you for mowing. I love to do that too. There is just something about getting things all back in order...by the way, where are you taking classes? I have been meaning to ask you.

Ugh!! I am waiting for my DD to say she wants a pair. I hope it is a short lived retro trend like the poncho was a few years back.

P.S. He loves you... said...

oh how fun! I liked'em also...but now?!

Tracey said...

Ew. I totally just did a post last week about the 80's coming back in style.
I am sooo not happy about it.

I'm not sure about the leg warmers but I did buy a pair of leggings to wear under dresses. I think that counts too. I can't beleive I did it but I really like that look. What's next? Big hair? Please, no, please! Although, jellies might be a fun fad. :)

I LOVED 80's fashion. That's when I looked my best:-) I am glad it's coming back! I am going to start ratting my hair tomorrow;-)

Thanks so much for the 80's flashback! I have to say that I am 100% passing on this trend!

What else is coming back? Do tell.

Brandy said...

We live in Okinawa, Japan and when we first arrived here it was like a time warp back to the 80's. The school age kids all wear leg warmers with high heels, neon colored clothing, and lately I've seen the return of the fish net shirts, yikes!!!!!!

Karen said...

OK, I found your Hannah Montana concert photos but no photos of your Bichon! You have to post some so I can ohhhh and awwwww. (BTW, we saw Hannah/Miley too here in Denver. I was surprisingly impressed....)
