These Boots Were Made For Walkin’

One of the tasks that our mom asked us to help her with while we’re in Tennessee was to go through some Rubbermaid tubs full of photographs and dig out the old black and white ones, so she can choose some to frame. It’s always fun to look through the really old pictures, because they tell so many great stories. We found photos of our Grandma at parties, some rare photos of our Dad’s parents, photos of mom and her brother, photos of extended family who live in California, and so many more.

Peeking into the lives our parents had way before we were ever born is always super cool, too. We found their prom picture. We found a bunch of pictures of mom when she was a hard-core ballerina (she was on point!). And then I found what instantly became one of my favorite pictures of Mom, of ALL TIME. Mom did some modeling, apparently for something at her temple. Well, I don’t need to go on about it; just look.

Are you ready boots? Start walking!

    Does she still have the boots? They would be so 'in' now. Mom is looking good.

    Old photos FTW! I have a Rubbermaid container of them that I need to go through, too. Thanks for reminding me.

    And yeah – Hot Mama!

    I hope you got your Moms permission before posting that picture, otherwise Jules may get ALL of the inheritance.

    With NYC Girl…so cute. I think I may have a similar one of my mom – minus the cowgirl outfit 🙂

    i always loved the clothes my mom had back in the day. i used to sneak in the closet and where her heels. not sure if she ever had boots. my memory is kind of shot, but i did have some psychedelic tops and pedal pushers…can't remember all the different styles from the years. do you think that our kids will look back on our clothes and think we were stylish? nahhh…prob not lol

    Great photo!

    My sister had an outfit that was similiar, but I think it was "hot pants." The outfit came complete with boots.

    A few years ago we celebrated a milestone birthday of my mom's and put her life on DVD. The old photos and old movies WERE wonderful! I can see why you enjoyed looking at your mom's past.

    I love those boots! They are pretty classy, and I bet your mom could make a ton of $$ if she still had them!

    There are not many things more fun than old pictures of other people. Conversely there is not much worse than old pictures of yourself.

    Forget the boots, look at her hair! So awesome.
