Adam and I chose:

Music from the 90s:

SPICE GIRLS

 If you were a teenage girl, you and your friends designated who was who from the group.

I was Ginger spice.

 

TLC was the jammmmm

 

You belted out this song in the shower and re-enacted a make believe break up scene

 

It was hard to decide who you loved more:

Backstreet Boys OR N’SYNC

 

 

and

BRITNEY VS. CHRISTINA

 

 

and you rocked out to Nirvana’s Teen Spirit

 

For all of these reasons above, and so many more, is why we chose to dress up from the 90s era!

We went with grungy, flannel 90s.
