Flashback: M-I-C-K-E-Y? Because tube socks make me so, so happy.

A little Flashback Friday treat for you: Zach's family at Disneyland sometime in the early 80's.

Zach wishes he still had that captain's hat so that he could look more convincing when bossing around his workers at the restaurant. But let's all be thankful he doesn't still wear shorts that, uh, short. Cute little Amie, Z's sister, is wearing an outfit that I also owned and loved. His dad looks awesome and, unfortunately, doesn't wear those socks anymore. But Zach's mom's outfit is my favorite. The fact that she wore those high-heeled platform sandals while chasing mini-Zach around the Happiest Place on Earth for a full day makes her my hero for sure
(Can you even imagine what he was like as a child? I can't keep him under control now and he's almost 30!). I hope that if Zach and I take our future children to Disneyland someday I remember to look half as stylish as she did.

The lesson for today is that fashion always trumps comfort, girls.

I remember seeing this photo on your fridge. It is so awesome! Dawn really is a sweet and stylish mom!

Yes I'm loving Dawn's shoes. I want some. And I love the knee high socks. When did Zach lose his fashion sense? I think you need to work with him.

If I remember correctly, you always choose style over comfort. Case in point #1: your new shoes you wore at Expo West. I believe you took them off and could barely pry them back on your blistered, swollen, red feet. I am laughing at my desk right now thinking of it!

So yes, I wouldn't doubt for a second that you would wear some sort of fabulous shoes to Disneyland. Plus, your future son, Mirando, will be perfect in every way.

He looks like one of those type of punk kids who would always cut in front of me in line at the Dumbo ride. Jerk.

What a coincidence -- I missed Flashback Friday this week because I was AT Disneyland (the bosses took us there as a surprise team building event).

I was NOT wearing anything nearly that stylish and am disappointed in myself.

Although I do have a "team building exercise 99" shirt, based on the outfit from Flight of the Conchord's "business time" episode.

Thank you so much for having that picture!!! My sister Elisa, wears shoes like Dawn's all summer. They were my mom's. And that picture illustrates my family's trip to Disneyland as well. Except my dad had these sweet lamb chops that wouldn't quit. (and his bangs feathered)

The pressure is on for me since we are leaving for Disneyland on Wednesday. I was planning on just taking my flip flops, but I guess I better get my heels packed along with my knee high socks!

I love Flashback Friday!

Is this Disneyland week? I just got dogged by Mark... who left for Disneyland today. Strange.

There is nothing that pleases me more than to see Zach in tube socks and a captain hat. That family picture is classic. You've gotta love the 80's!
