The Nineties (aka Simpler Times)...


I am TOTALLY stealing this from Nadine because - hello - best decade EVER!  I could not resist.

Favorite Disney Film.


Aladdin.  I had everything Aladdin - bedding, dolls, stuffed animals, wall stickers, etc.  I loved it so much!

Favorite Disney Channel Original Movie.


I'm totally making up my own rule here & going with Disney Channel show.  I loved the Mickey Mouse Club.  I used to pretend I was on it, not gonna lie.

Favorite Music Artist.


Paula Abdul.  I had Forever Your Girl & Spellbound on cassette.  One of my brothers almost lost his life because he pulled all the tape outta my Spellbound cassette ruining it.  I really did almost murder him & I remind him of him doing that from time to time.

Favorite Candy.


When I had to run down to the gas station to get milk and/or bread, I would sometimes get a lil extra money to get myself a lil treat & candy cigarettes were what would sometimes get.  As awful as that was, I loved them.  Oh, & the gum cigars - yes, please!  Ha, ha!

Favorite Game (Board Game, School Game, etc.).


The Oregon Trail...what a fun & exciting way to try to make it cross country without freezing to death, starving or shitting out your insides.  Man, if I could go back & do it again...I would kill everyone in my wagon & live off them until I made it to the west coast. Tee hee!

Favorite McDonald's Happy Meal Toy.


These lil things would transform to lil creatures.  We used to have a couple of them.  We didn't get to eat at McDonald's much when we were younger but when we did, there was four of us so we had a few.

Favorite Book.


Oh, RL Stine...I loved his books.  I had SO many of them.  Actually, every single one in the picture above, I had & read at least once.  To be honest, if I could, I would download them on my Kindle & read them all again...I should check to see if I can get them on my Kindle, that would be the best thing EVER!

Favorite Clothing Store.


I didn't really have a favorite store but I loved Z. Cavarcci.  Oh, I had jeans & shirts, one of my school pictures in junior high was in one of my Z. Cavaricci shirts.  I still wish I had that shirt.  Ha!

Favorite Show.


Oh, when Saturday night came around & SNICK was on - all was calm in our house.  I loved watching Are You Afraid of the Dark before heading to bed to read my RL Stine books.  Oh, the good ol' days...how I would love to have them back.

Weirdest Fashion Trend.


The bodysuit.  It snapped between your legs like a damn onesie.  It was like dressing baby...that being said, I had a black one & a white one.  I hated them but, you know, had to fit in with all the other girls who probably hated them as well.  I see that they are making a comeback & this is one girl who will NOT following that fashion trend.  Blah.

    1. Oh yea, we found some candy cigarettes a couple of years ago too & bought them, they still have that chalky, sweet taste to them. Ha, ha!

      I really want to sit down & read those books & watch AYAOTD to see if they are still good. :)

  4. HELL YES to R.L. Stine and the Oregon Trail!!! I think I had the majority of the R.L. Stine collection! And I was born in that weird time between Gen X and Gen Y (Millennials), and I detest being called a Millennial, so I often refer to myself as being part of the Oregon Trail generation! Also, did you know that you can still play it online today?! When I first heard about that, I found it and started playing immediately!

Happy 34th Birthday To Me...

Since tomorrow is my 34th birthday, I decided in celebration of it, I should list 34 facts about me.  So, here we go:

1.  For lunch today, I had a Big Grab bag of Funyuns, a bottle of Dew & some mini-Snickers.  I'm all about my health today, it seems.  :|

2.  I bought my first pair of leggings today since I was about 12.  They are for working out & they were on clearance.

3.  Speaking of leggings, I so badly want the tattoo version of them.  You know how the complete coverage of the arm in tattoos is called a "sleeve", I started calling the complete coverage of the leg in tattoos a "legging".  Ha!

4.  I've seen every episode of Friends at least ten times.  Paul will turn it on when it's on TV & test me on what episode it is...I'm rarely wrong.

5.  I really, really, really want to go back to Vegas real soon.  I'm almost half-tempted to ask Paul if we can go there for our second anniversary.

6.  I pretty much have tiny panic attacks on a da…

Weekending/Musical Monday…

I've decided to start linking up with Biana on reporting on activities of the weekend.  If you would like to join, hit her up!
So, on to my weekend...
Friday - the husband & I went out to dinner and for drinks with our friends, Ben & Christa.  & then headed back to our house for some games.  A nice quiet evening with some great people.
Saturday - my cousin, Jennifer, & I decided to take a last minute trip to Appleton for some shopping & such.  We had her youngest with her & he was perfect!  We had so much fun & while at Scheels, I educated him about Bucky Badger because he kept going over to the Wisconsin Badger stuff & by the end of our trip in that store, he was calling out "Bucky!"  My heart could not be prouder.


When we got back into town, Paul & I went out for a couple glasses of wine & then headed back home to relax & watch Baby Driver.  You can read my review here.

Sunday - typical Sunday, spent the morning hanging out in be…
