Hey, hey, it’s Show & Tell Tuesday!
Twice a month, Andrea hosts a link up where we show and tell you something. Today’s topic: A trip down memory lane.
So, this link up is kind of a blank canvas. Her prompt says to show and tell favorite childhood stuff, so everyone brace yourselves for a trip down the 1980s and ’90s memory lane…
Cabbage Patch dolls were to me what American Girl is to my girls. They were my everything. I always asked Santa for one and then carried them/loved on them/took care of them 24/7 after that. My mom is not sentimental, and didn’t keep most of our stuff from when we were little…but she did keep two of my Cabbage Patch dolls. Now, my girls play with them at her house. Is it weird that I still remember what I named them? Because I do 😉 .
Yes, yes, YES!!!!! I was obsessed with New Kids on the Block! My mom took me to their concert in 1989 and even though I was only 8, I remember it vividly to this day. I wore a black t-shirt that I had used neon puff paint to decorate with their names. I used to sleep in a t-shirt with Donnie Wahlberg’s face on it. I loved them!
Okay, do they still make Sam & Libby flats? They were a BIG deal to me growing up! I wanted my foot to grow so badly so that I could wear them (they didn’t come in kid sizes). I remember my friend Julie got a pair and I was so jealous of her and her big foot 😉 .
Neon. Everything. I mean…I used to wear neon from head to toe. I’m pretty sure I glowed in the dark. Anyone else? When I recall a memory from childhood, I am always in neon. Always.
I was Lisa Frank obsessed. I had her folders, her binders, her notebooks and of course, her stickers. They looked great with my neon wardrobe 😉 .
And I was also obsessed with this…
…my Trapper Keeper! The best part about school starting in the fall was a new Trapper Keeper for all of my elementary school stuff. I loved those things!
I was in love with Calico Critters and right now, Kensington is too. Did they go away and come back? Or have they always been around? I don’t know??? All I know is that I collected them when I was eight and now, my eight year old does too. Loved these little guys!
I’m pretty sure that everyone that is my age is going to have Saved by the Bell as a part of their memory lane…but how can we not?!?! I was in LOVE with Zach Morris. In. Love. When they did the college years spin-off and then the wedding movie special, I about died. I don’t even remember what else I watched growing up…this show is the only one I seem to recall.
There are a few things from my memory lane. Okay, if you’re around my age (born 1981ish) then what are some things I’m missing? Remind me! Let’s all reminisce together!
