Today I'm linking up with Dara from The Southern Thing, and some other pretty ladies, for probably the funnest Throwback Thursday ever....You Know Your a 90s Kid When...!!!!
I was born October 3, 1990. So I enjoyed much of the 90s. Sometimes I wish I'd been a teen in the 90s, but sometimes I'm really thankful I didn't wear overalls and baby doll dresses and gelly shoes as a teen at the same time.
I was a Nick kid. NOT a Disney kid. I mean, I loved Disney movies, but I wasn't a Disney Channel fan until I was a tween and would watch things like Lizzie McGuire and whatnot. But that wasn't the 90s.
Back to Nickelodeon. Some of my favorite shows were
A few things:
- I hated Ah Real Monsters and Rocco's Modern Life. They were weird and creepy. But I loved all the other shows. And really, really wanted to go play on Legends of the Hidden Temple.
- There will never be a show like Kenan and Kel on TV ever again.
Also, remember when Amanda Bynes wasn't a complete whack-job?!
Ugh. The good ole days.
I was also obsessed with
LISA FRANK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had a denim jacket with the golden retriever puppy print on the back. Remember that one? I. Was. Obsessed.
I also collected beanie babies and was totally convinced they'd be worth millions one day. LIES.
I had, like, books and logs and birth certificates, y'all.
I was also a Backstreet Boys fan. N*Sync had nothing on them. At all.
|When they made their *first* comeback in the 2000s |
my best friend and I definitely convinced our moms
to take us to Vegas and go to their concert. My life
I was always Posh. You know you and your girlfriends would pretend to be them and nobody ever wanted to be Sporty and it was lucky if you had a black friend to be Scary. Well I was a princess then just like I am now so you best believe I was ALWAYS POSH. Just look at her. I knew she'd be the most successful all along. And we look just alike, don't you think???
On top of my collection of Beanie Babies, I also had an unhealthy obsession/collection of My Little Ponies, and my mom recorded My Little Pony Tales and I would watch them on repeat over and over and over again. My little pony, my little pony, my little pony taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaales!!!
And I got my first Barbie when I was 1 year old and was hooked.
|I used to like to do their hair too. Like I would give them haircuts|
and highlights with nail polish. They always looks so fab.
|I was such a boss in my Barbie jeep.|
Oh, how I miss the 90s.
The one thing I was ever good at in life, by the way, was also a 90s thing: Chinese Jumprope. I ruled the playground when it came to those stupid giant rubber bands:
|In, out, side, side, in, out, on!!!!!!!!!!!|
Take me back!!!
|Yes, yes they do.|
Can't wait to read everyone else's 90s throwbacks!!!
