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' 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. I was on the dance team in high school, and we had a dance to Paula Abdul's Cold Hearted Snake...and yes, I can still remember some of the choreography. ha!

    1. Well, I think that you need to take a video of that & post it for the world to see. :)

    1. The 90's sure were great...I'd go back, that's for sure.

  3. Yay you did it too!!! I loved candy cigerettes and fun story, my sister found some last year at a nostalgia type store and bought some for me. Still tasted the same!!! I liked RL Stine books and Are You Afraid of the Dark too!

    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!

  5. 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.

Thankful Thursday...

I am thankful...that tonight after work, I'm gonna pick up some din-din for my sister & I & then we're gonna play some old school Nintendo games on her projection screen.  Awhoo hoo!  I am so happy that my sister is back home!  :)

I am thankful...for Stan Lee.  I know that I've probably said it before but this guy is pretty dang amazing with the Marvel characters & stories that came to be from his mind.  I just wish that I had that kind of brain to think up all the crazy things/beings he does.

I am thankful...that in four weeks, I'll be in Las Vegas.  Just me & my hubby hopefully catching a few shows, winning some dough & having some good grub.  We'll for sure be seeing Love by Cirque & then I wanna get him tickets to either Cris Angel or Penn & Teller as a birthday gift.  I tried talking him into seeing Britney but he hasn't caved yet, I'm hoping that he will cuz if I get to see Britney, it would be amazing cuz I love her!

I am tha…

$10 at Target...

Yea, I was able to get to Target & get some goodies so I could link-up with one of my favorites!  Awhoo hoo!  If you wanna join in, visit Liz or any of the other hosts to linkup.  :)

Here is my haul:

Sunshine complained the other night that she needed more socks so I picked her up some.

I had to hit the clearance Easter stuff & picked these up for Paul.  He loves sour stuff so thought they would be right up his alley.  :)

I picked these up for myself.  I love them SO much & since I didn't make myself an Easter bag I figured I would grab these when they were 50% off.  Yum!

My grand total:  $10.96 Almost a dollar over but that's okay, I got some needed things.
