A blink

On August 20, 1989 I went out on a date with this guy some friends had set me up with...(note my gold jewelry, BIG hair and shoulder pads)



We saw this movie...



18 months later, we were married.

19 years...gone in a blink of an eye. I love you Mark.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Was it really 19 years ago that Leathal Weapon 2 came out?

High Desert Diva said...

Yep...really was

Check out Mel Gibson's 1980's hair!

Congrats. And kudos to you for being brave enough to post the shoulder-padded version of you.

Many happy future years for you both!

Woah, I never realised lethal weapon was filmed so long ago! I was 4 years old!

Happy Anniversary!

Congratulations! Your post led me to some funny adumbrations, though:

- Is Mark lethal?

- Are you implying that Mel and Danny should STILL be together after 19 years?

- Is the poster of the movie a giveaway to something we don't know but you and Mark are fully aware of?

:-D

I hope you have another 2 decades together, and then, another two after that and so on (you catch my drift).

My wife and I are in number 11 now, still some catching up to do.

Greetings from London.

Congratulations, yours is such a wholesome story. I was 15 in a NYC nightclub with fake ID and *very* short shorts! The packaging was a sly marketing technique, I must admit! :) Best to you and Mark!

Aww..Charmaine, this is a super post! I love it :D Ok, big hair and shoulder pads..went through that era too..our age are very close haha..cant even see my old picture but you looked hot then, hotter now, esp with the new hair cut. Isn't it wonderful to be together for so long, congrats to both of you :D You know, my husband and I used to argue..and then as the years went by, it became much lesser and now almost hardly, so mom said 'hey,you guys get better when you grow older', I said 'no mom, the only reason we dont argue so much is because we dont have time..not after 3 kids' and of course now, with additional 7 rabbits hahaaha!! Much love and hugs to you :D
