Just before Christmas, Chelsey, Jess and myself had a "Girlfriend Day" together downtown Ottawa. We went out for lunch to the "Scone Witch" (yummy!), and then did a bit of Christmas shopping together. Not only was it a fun day spent together with the girls but it was also very educational for me. (You can learn a heck of a lot from an 18 & 19 year-old). One thing that I did notice was plaid is huge amongst this age group (boys & girls). I'm talking about the big shirts that quite honestly reminded me of what my father wore many years ago on the farm. I came across one blouse and thought "I wore something like this in high school". Here's the proof...this is a picture of me taken during one of my Art Class at Norwell District High School, in Palmerston, Ontario, in 1982 (yep, that's right!) I was doing something with clay and probably ended up as a paper weight that I gave to my dad on Father's Day. I really don't recall. I should have kept that blouse! It only took 28 years to be back in style!
