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. :)

  2. Replies
    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!

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…

It's Wednesday So That Means...

So, back in the day, there was a linkup about weekly lessons.  I really liked it but since it has crumbled & the linkup is no more.  :(  I really liked doing it so I'm going to continue doing it, join me!
I've Learned...that when Sunshine gets an attitude with me & I make her go to her room & rethink how she speaks to me, she comes down ten minutes later & is sweet as pie.  I even got three "I Love Yous" from her in a span of about thirty minutes.  Ha!  
I've Learned...that I need to make another attempt at the Grand Mac from McDonald's.  I tried to do it last week but did not finish it (I finished the fries & the apple pie though).  That was not good enough for my grandfather so I need to have another go at it so I think that since it's just me & Sunshine again tonight, we're gonna pick up McDonald's again & give it another shot.

I've Learned...that once the weather warms up, even if just for a lil bit, I think Spring…

Friday Five...

Why, hello, everyone.  'Tis that day of the week when we all pick five things to talk about.  So, if you would like to linkup you can head on over to Karli &/orApril.

My five this week are five of my latest funnies pinned on Pinterest.  Lately, work has been a lil difficult & I need something to make me smile on this Friday morning.  So, here we go:

So, are there any posts that have been giving you a giggle lately?  If so, please share.
Have a great weekend, yall!
