You Take the Good, You Take the Bad...

...and there you have the facts of life...
Courtesy of my brother's Facebook posting generosity (and humor), here I am a la eighties in what he declared my "Lisa Whelchel" look.

Admittedly, he does have a slightly embarrassing point!

For those whom the sitcom pre-dates, we oldsters do get credit for seeing George Clooney via his first NBC series debut! (And hopefully, we've all aged so well....)

Now go on over to Candid Carrie's and enjoy the Friday Foto Finish Fiesta fun!

Ronda's Rants said...

You look great!
If it's any consolation you nailed the look!

Nancy said...

Oh, we watched Facts of Life ALL.THE.TIME. And I so see you as Lisa there! LOL

However...I must say that the first time I saw George was when he was in the original E/R ... a comedy that ROCKED.

Christy said...

I don't even remember Cluney on Facts of Life! However, I was a huge fan of the show, and I have 8th grade pics of me looking like Jo.. so now who can we recruit to be the rest of the gang? LOL

Its a very adorable pic of you! (aren't brothers great?) :)

Barbara Manatee said...

I loved the 80's!!! Great pictures!!

Brandi said...

That's fantastic!! While you're definitely dressed like Blair, you look just like Jo Polnecheck! I had a huge crush on Mackensie Astin (the redhead kid, can't remember his name now) because of that show.

Veggie Mom said...

The Facts of Life rocked! And did you ever see George Clooney on Roseanne?

Christy said...

Blair was hot. I'm jealous!

BoufMom9 said...

OH.MY.GOSH!!!!! BLAIR!!!! HOLY! You did look just like her! WOW! (I wish i could make this font bigger. LOL)

George Clooney back in the day...ahhh yes, I so remember him back then :)

Laura said...

No matter the year, the time or place...that Cheryl is a cutie.
AND SO IS GEORGE CLOONEY.

Tracy said...

You are the spitting image! LOL But I bet you've aged better. And George Clooney is my go-to when I'm assuring my Scott that grey IS sexy.

Xazmin said...

I like it! My brother also has threatened to post a very embarrassing photo of me on his facebook! I think he really won't though...he's scared of me!

Brooke said...

I am cracking up, yes, he does have a point!!! Too funny!

Donna said...

I cracked up when your bro posted that on fb! (and the other pics) hilarious! ahhhh...the 80's, what fond memories. You, however, seemed to have very faired well during that decade. Me - uh, not so much. Sad state of affairs back then! ;-)
...and you're stick rockin' out the...the...what the heck are we in now? The "digits?" The...The early 2000's? Whatevah - you're hot!

cat said...

What! Did George Cluny look like that?

noble pig said...

Love the pic of you...totally Lisa!

But George...good grief...men just age amazingly...not fair.

Jenni Jiggety said...

I have to say you did Blair GREAT!!
