Have you ever sat around with people your age and talked about all the things you used to be into? I love thinking of stuff I used to like and then trying to talk my kids into it. It brought me so much joy as a kid, I'm sure it will bring them the same happiness. Well, a few of those things should probably be amended because frankly, it's never as good as you remember it to be.
My sisters and I would fight over who got to wear these. Apparently I've been obsessed with super heroes for a very long time. I know, I have issues.
I use to buy these candy bars with my sister from the gas station up the road from us. I only bought them because they were the biggest for my money's worth. They are a bit nasty and quite chewy but you couldn't get anything bigger for 35 cents-- I guarantee it!
I use to race home from school to see this show. I loved it. I always wanted my own sea of money to swim in. Ah, maybe some day.
I remember staying up "late" with my Dad to watch this gem. I still hum the theme song from time to time. Anyone with me on this one?
I had my mom make me a load of hammer pants (with matching cumber buns) to wear to school. Oh, I looked goooood. (thanks mom) Nothing says style like a low baggy crotch.
This is another show I would race home to watch. The best ones were when He-Man and She-Ra over lapped into each other's worlds and worked together to stop the bad guys. I started my kids on this show and they love it too. The bad news is-- it's a lot lamer than I remembered.
The Dukes of Hazzard is a classic. I was too naive to get the whole hottie Daisy thing so it was all about catching the bad guys to me. Plus hopping into a car without actually using the door-- how cool is that?
These were rare in our area (I mean the one gas station where we would buy our candy) and my sister and I would jump at the chance to buy these babies whenever we could. I'm pretty sure my tastes have matured since then but I have bought a few from time to time just to indulge in the memories.
Pound Puppies! I was in love with a boy in my class who had them all. That was his only appeal to me. I know, so shallow. But hey, they were pretty hard to find back then because they were always selling out. Don't judge!
These glasses were my pride and joy. I hung onto these for a very long time until my sister's boyfriend accidentally ran them over. (sniff sniff) They are coming back in style and I have bought a pair for each of my girlies. Hey, I can live through them every once in a while.
Thanks for taking a trip down memory lane with me.
What were you into back in the day?
