I remember as a young girl, not that long ago, being on the playground and having so much fun. “Back in the day” we were able to be entertained without the need for electronics, specialized lessons, and all of this other stuff these 21st century youngins act like they can’t live without.
If it was semi-warm outside, not raining and our parents said we could, we were outside; running, playing, riding bikes, just having a good time and exercising without even knowing it; hence the reason childhood obesity was rare in those days. (But that’s another topic for another day)
Today’s memories fall back on two things I could be outside doing for hours and have to be summoned in the house to bring them to an end….
I haven’t done one of these in a while. Something came on the radio the other day that inspired me to do a throwback/Monday Memory. Who doesn’t remember the two young fellas that came around in the 90′s sporting their pants backwards and demanding we lifted our feet off the ground…
I don’t know what recently made me think of these things, but weren’t they something special? (If you were an 80’s baby like me, anyway).
I had about 4 of these things, and you felt all the way official with the little birth certificate that came with them. I thought I was something pretty special when I got one that had the ore regular doll hair as opposed to the yarn hair that you couldn’t do anything to but twist and braid.
Do little girls these days even really play with dolls anymore? Read more...
A year ago today, I walked down the aisle, met my best friend at the end and walked back up as his Mrs. One of the greatest days ever!!!
We may be newly-weds but we are by no means newly-acquainted. As I have mentioned before, we have lots of history – knowing each other for the greater majority of our lives; and even sharing some kind of weird connection for all that time.
Everyone told us that marriage changes things and even though we knew each other and had dated for a decent amount of time, it just changes – and IT DID! Read more...

It’s hard to believe that three years ago we lost, who most would call our greatest POP icon ( and if you don’t you are just young or nuts!).
I know personally, I never really imagined a day without Michael Jackson. I just thought he would be around forever singing and dancing, like only he could. He was beyond immensely talented and although he had his own issues and demons, we are at a great loss with his death.
Today’s Monday Memory is a tribute to him.
We all remember it and I am sure if you are like me you played it over and over AND over again, until your mom took back control of the television. Its hard to believe that I was only 2 years old when that was released. While I know I don’t remember it being released, I do however remember watching it, trying to emulate the dance moves, and just jamming in my own little adolescent way to it.Read more...
