Today we are kicking it old school….taking you back to our yesteryears.
Truth be told, I miss almost everything you can find below. I miss the days where my biggest decision was if I should sport a side pony or a french braid. I miss Zach & Kelly’s drama, and I really miss Vanilla Ice hairbrush karaoke. I don’t miss my retainer, or indian burns, double dutch, or skipping portable cd players.
Brace yourself, I don’t need a time-travel-whiplash lawsuit on my hands. Oh man those are some pretty sweet threads.
I really did own all of those things and I am really considering making my next party a “90s track suit” theme. Whatever happened to all those old neon swishy concoctions? Are they sitting in an attic somewhere waiting for their comeback? But it gets better….
Just for the sake of sweet-sweet nostalgia…
What do you miss most from your youth?
Those color change shirts? Fringe?
Paper fortune-teller game? Dream Date?
Fake Barbie make-up? Friendship bracelets?
Hey now I still rock the claw when I’m at home..and I for sure bedazzle everything and I have leggings with the straps so they will stay in my boots! I say whoever created all those things are geniuses!
Hahaha….my hair never stayed in a claw…too thick dangit. Do you really still have a bedazzler? I am coming over 🙂
Yep, favorite post ever! There were a few items that I had that I had totally forgot about! Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
I think this was my favorite post ever to write! But I forgot Caboodles…and banana clips….and TMNT….and Babysitters Club…and so on
I think that calls for a second edition 🙂
Bubbletape had the best commercials too. “Your gym teacher….watches hygiene films”
I miss the commercials from when we were kids. They. Were. Awesome.
About the only thing I wouldn’t mind seeing come back is funky toe socks. Gimme somma dat! I can’t wait for the Boy Meets World spin-off. Why yes I will be watching that!
Oh my gawhhhh I know! I was soooo happy when I heard that…I heard someone else was making a reunion movie but now I can’t remember for what show. You know you miss those stirrup pants 🙂
Was it ●F●R●E●I●N●D●S●?
OK, we must be exactly the same age because this totally describes my entire adolescence!!! Let’s bring all of this back!
RIGHT! I am seriously wondering why some of these things ever went out of style. Except the swishy suits, the 80’s can keep those!
I was JUST reading about this because we picked up an Atari at a garage sale today! 43 things to make you feel old: http://www.buzzfeed.com/mjs538/things-that-will-make-you-feel-really-old- I like the hairplugs thing.
I would invite myself and make the trip down for a windbreaker party!
P.S. you forgot Tamagotchi’s :p I think a round two is def in order.
Ohhhhh man…I had three of those things….they all died!
I still love gel pens and Lisa Frank!
I actually found a Lisa Frank notebook yesterday! Guess what it was filled with…..
Wretched tween girl poetry, written in gel pens 🙂
I’m dying over here! this is TOO FUNNY! What an awesome post… seriously! You must have worked so hard on it. And I appreciate it, too! I needed a good laugh today!
Awwwww thanks!!! That made my day! It was a lot of fun to put it together…although as soon as I hit publish I thought of at least ten more things to add 🙂
Hilarious! I totally rocked my scrunchies and clip-on Tamagotchis. I miss the fun stuff, definitely do NOT miss the clothes. Haha. Overalls need to stay dead.
I am SUPER stoked for the spin-off of Boy Meets World. That was hands down, the best show ever. 🙂
Girl, think about it….no more muffin top….no more pulling up your pants while bowling…well that is all I got.
I can’t wait to see Miss Topanga all grown up! Is that even how you spell it?!?!
oh my goodness! what is that weird zig zag thing we all used to put in our hair?! this post is AMAZING. pinning right now. and nice to connect with you from alt summit!
So happy we landed in the same classes!!! And thank you!!!!
Are you in any classes today?
THIS JUST MADE MY DAY!!! Ahhhhh so many memories! How did you remember (and then find) all these treasures?!
Hahaha well it all started when I found out that overalls are making a comeback haha! Then I just made a list 🙂
So glad you liked it and even happier you stopped by!!!!
haha, this is awesome.. i remember.. and uh, had most of those things lolololool .. thanks for the hilarious walk down memory lane!
Hahaha….were you rocking the side pony too? WIth crimped hair? That was sooo cool!
hahhaahha the side pony for sure! 😀 but totally wasn’t cool enough to own a hair crimper 🙁 lol i do remember braiding my hair in a billion tiny little braids to try to mimic crimping tho!! except my hair was so straight nothing stayed LOL.. fail
OHhhhhh YES! The braids….you know braids were the thing too. When we were little it was, “mom can you french braid my hair”. Then we all got into the small braids, because it was so alternative-rock. Now here we are trying to conquer this dang fish tail….someone tell me where you get the magical fairies to pull that off?!?!?!
Love this post! And ps- Big John still has some Adidas sandals like those 😉
Hhahaha…I bet you I could find almost all this stuff in my parents basement. Can we say hoarder 🙂 One day it will be cool again and I will be rich selling “vintage” stuff haha.
Ha, you seriously nailed this one! Quite a trip down memory lane. Now I want to go to CVS and see if I can find Exclamation to really bring me back. 🙂
Hahahaha that was my jam and jelly and all that goodness. My teachers probably hated me because I would seriously overdose on the Exclamation. I was the smelly kid in class, but at least it wasn’t the “I don’t take baths” kind of smelly!
