A look back at my childhood!


I was trying to come up with something to blog about tonight and I couldn't for the life of me come up with anything that I thought would be interesting. Oh sure, I could do the usual...this is what's going on, this is what I'm cooking or sewing.......so and so is sick or well or happy or sad. But I didn't want to do that.

I wanted something different, so I thought I would bring you in images, some of my favorite childhood memories......the songs and the food, the toys and the tv shows. Whatever made an impact on ME and who I am today....so enjoy, who knows...you may just see something that will remind you of YOUR younger years.

I have to tell you.........Jasmine was listening to the 80's songs with me and watching the videos on YouTube and she said "Wow, those costumes they wear are cool" Hahahahahahahahaha
I almost died, I think my eye twitched cause I turned back to her and said "Uh....those aren't costumes, that's how we used to dress" LOL

Oh, Sandra this is so funny!!! We must be the same age b/c these all made me hoot with laughter!

And I now have a hybrid of "Come & Knock on Our Door" (3's company) and "Heaven is a Place on Earth" running incessantly through my head!

Sarah said...

Oh what a great idea. I haven't time now but I'll have a go later.

Some of the shows I don't recognise, but I did love the Goonies (we've bought it on DVD) and Ghostbusters. I loved Dallas too. And lol many of those songs were my favourites too, including Rock me Amadeus! And Mel and Kim "tay tay tay tay t t t tay tay tay take or leaves us only please believe us we are never going to be respectable...respectable..." hehehehe brings back memories!

I'm 34 so I guess we would listen to the same music.

Love n' hugs

Good Morning Sandra,
Wow, this is a cool thing to do. I do remember alot of those things as well. I was a Dallas fan all the way. LOL. I couldn't wait to see the next episode. LOL. I remember 3's Company as well. That was always a funny show to watch. Oh, the 80's songs. I remember alot of them as well. I used to drink Mellow Yellow and I did drink Tab on occasion. Gotta love those Twinkies. I could eat a whole box of those. LOL. I remember the Rubic's Cube and the Cabbage Patch Dolls as well. Pac Man and Battleship were 2 of my favorite games to play. "THANK YOU" for taking us down Memory Lane with you. I really enjoyed it. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

Oh the 80's - big hair, skinny jeans, big hair, new wave, big hair, aqua net...did I mention big hair?
My 20th reunion is this coming summer...can't believe it's been this long.
DH & I have date nights with you tube sometimes, looking up videos from 80's bands, it's SO much fun!
Thanks for the blast from the past.
