I'm a product of the seventies, which means I went through school in the eighties and early ninties.
I'm ok with that. In fact, it catches up with me quite often.
One of Brent's and my favorite movies is The Wedding Singer.
totally ROCK all the 80's glam, and songs. It literally CRACKS US UP through the whole movie. Our kids DO NOT get it.
So, that being said, lately, it seems like 80's references keep creeping up in my life. Because of that, I thought I'd share some of my favorite memories, and some of my favorite things I possessed back then.
When I recently saw these on Pinterest I couldn't help but crack up.
Their hair flowed like the breeze through the water. Absolutely FANTASTIC for a little girl.
I also had these as a fashion statement. The person on Pinterest who pinned these made the comment that they were the CROCS of the 80's. Oh yeah, baby. They were.
Jellies. You could go in the sand or water, and it just spilled out the holes in the sides. Wonderful!
Since I was so into fashion, when I got this I rearranged Barbie's outfits so many times, she could've supplied the city of Paris with her wardrobe.
And lastly, high school. Ah, high school. I don't know how my friends and I ever heard of this game, but we soiled many a notebook page playing it.
Swatch watches were SO important fashion-wise...
and I can't remember if I had an ACTUAL Swatch, but I totally had the jelly protector that went across it.
Boy, do I ever feel OLD right now. That trip through memory lane tired me out. Now, if I can just find a Madonna song on the radio on the way home...
What era did you grow up in, and what are your memories?
