When I hang my head over the couch, Mr. G decides it is time for some lovin and rubs against my hand. I think it is one of the cutest things he could do. Other than when he was a kitten and had a girlfriend. I think I will post picture of his girlfriend here
Yes, that is one of those cute little beanie babies we used to all know and love. Back in the 90’s. I miss the 90’s. I miss my childhood.
little me
That is me at a young age, if you didn’t guess
Has anyone ever seen one of those Myspace bulletins or Facebook notes of, “You know you’re a 90‘s kid if:” and there was a huge list of cartoons, and toys, and phrases from the 90’s. I think I will now reference to that for the rest of this post.

I will bold the ones I remember, and maybe I will give some commentary on some 😉

You’re a 90’s kid if:

You’ve ever ended a sentence with the word “PSYCHE!”

You can sing the rap to “The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air”
I didn’t actually know this in the 90’s but learned it this year =]

You remember when Kurt Cobain, Tu Pac, River Phoenix, and Selena died.

You know that “WOAH” comes from Joey from “Blossom” and that “How Rude!” comes from Stephanie from “Full House”
Full House was my addiction. I have seen every episode 3 times or more

You remember when it was actually worth getting up early
on a Saturday to watch cartoons.

You got super excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school.

You remember reading “Goosebumps”
I never got to much into it, just read one or two, but I had friends who where more obsessed. I was more into the Choose your own adventure and Choose your own nightmare

You know the profound meaning of “Wax on, wax off”

You have pondered why Smurfette was the only female smurf.

You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.
I had this ridiculously small bugs bunny one, that hardly could hold half a sandwich, but I thought it was so cool I didn’t care

You danced to “Wannabe” by the Spice Girls, Females: had a new motto, Males: got a whole lot gay-er. (so tell me what you want, what you really really want.)

You remember the craze, then the banning of slap bracelets and slam books.
I also remember making my own out of those metal tape measurers

You still get the urge to say “NOT” after (almost) every sentence…Not…

Where in the world is Carmen San Diego? was both a game and a TV game show.

Captain Planet.

You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy, the green Ranger were meant to be together.

When playing power rangers with friends you fought over who got to be who…………and still all ended up being Tommy.

You remember when Super Nintendo’s became popular.

You remember watching home alone 1, 2 , and 3……..and tried to pull the pranks on “intruders”
Well I wouldn’t pull them on intruders, just my mom (:

“I’ve fallen and I can’t get up”

You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline skates

Two words… Trapper Keeper.
well that was more a 5th, 6th grade thing

You never got injured on a Slip ‘n’ Slide

You wore socks over leggings scrunched down

“Miss Mary Mack, Mack, Mack, all dressed in black, black, black, with silver buttons, buttons, buttons, all down her back, back, back” SHE ASKED HER MOTHER MOTHER MOTHER FOR FIFTY CENTS CENTS CENTS TO SEE THE ELEPHANTS PHANTS PHANTS JUMP OVER THE FENCE THE FENCE THE FENCE
he jumped so high high high he touched the sky sky sky and he didnt come back back back til the forth of july ly ly he jumped so low ow ow he stubbed his toe toe toe and thats the end end end of the elephants show show show

You remember boom boxes vs. cd players

You remember New Kids on The Block when they were cool

You knew all the characters names and their life stories on “Saved By The Bell”

You played and/or collected “Pogs”

You had at least one Tamagotchi, GigaPet or Nano and brought it everywhere
The original versions where a million times better than the “connect” versions

You watched the original Care Bears, My Little Pony, and Ninja Turtles


Yikes pencils and erasers were the stuff!
And I loved the smell, even though now I know that the smell is horrible

All your school supplies were “Lisa Frank” brand.(pencils.notebooks.binders.etc.)
I still have a lisa frank binder in my bedroom 😀

You used to wear those stick on earings, not only on your ears, but at the corners of your eyes.

You remember a time before the WB.

You’ve gotten creeped out by “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”
I love watching old episodes on you tube!

You know the Macarena by heart.

“Talk to the hand” … enough said

You thought Brain would finally take over the world
THAT SHOW WAS THE BOMB! It’s Pinky and the Brain Brain Brain BRAIN!

You always said, “Then why don’t you marry it!”

You remember when everyone went slinky crazy.
I still remember the smell of my Grandma’s musty basement from pushing them down her steps

You remember when razor scooters were cool.
When did they stop being cool? 😉

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed the trip down memory lane! I did cut out a lot at the end so if you want more make sure to check out the link I posted towards the top!

Who thinks I am hiding something magical!

What is your favorite 90’s memory?
Mine would have to be just being a kid and not worrying about fitting in and boys and making friends by saying hi, and that was just enough.
