It all started in a candy aisle at Five Below...there I was surrounded by all the candy I used to dream about as a kid, the candy I would save up all my nickels and dimes for, but there was one major difference....now I could actually buy it all. So I did! I filled my basket with Bubble Tape, Pop Rocks, Bubblicious gum, Nerds, Big League Chew, and basically everything I ever craved as a kid!
Standing in line with a basket that looked like the Christmas morning I always wanted, I started to remember more than just candy...floral printed dresses, jelly shoes, Keds, bubbles, Goosebumps, the Babysitters Club, fortune tellers, the game of LIFE. Memories flooded over me and I knew right then that I had to put these memories into photos. David and Allison are one of the most fun (and FUNNY) couples I know, so it was only fitting to ask them if they'd be game (pun intended) for a themed engagement session. So let's hop in my Delorean and travel back, back, wayyyyyy back...to the 1990s!
Remember when you would race home from school to watch TRL on MTV? I remember having legitimate wars with my friends over who would be number one - N'Sync or Backstreet Boys! Allison's floral printed dress and keds have me walking down memory lane!!
Remember when you used to wear your ring pop as an engagement ring? Oh...yea, uh...me neither.
This one is a double-wammy of memories! Lady and the Tramp AND bubble tape!
Oh fortune tellers...I can't even tell you how many times I got to marry Devon Sawa thanks to these little paper origamis! Many thanks to Design Mom for the awesome free download of this printable fortune teller!
LIFE was hands-down my favorite game as a kid. I loved driving my car and pretend marrying a little blue man and having little pink and blue stick babies!
Dave and Allison, I couldn't ask for a cuter or more fun couple to bring my memories to life! Thank you SO much! xo! :)
