I was doing all my best “growing up” during the ‘90’s, so how could I resist this week’s edition of Tuesday 10, hosted by Mom2MemphisAndRuby?!
Her co-host this week is Veronica from Adventures of D and V!!
Here are my 10 Favourite Things About the ‘90’s:
10. My Donnie Wahlberg Doll
I guess the New Kids were kind of on their way out by the early ‘90’s, but I spent a lot of time in those young years of the decade playing with my Donnie doll. I mean, how rad is that rat tail?!? ;)
9. The Discman
You weren’t one of the cool kids unless you had a Discman!!!
8. Beverly Hills 90210
The show ran from 1990-2000, so really, there is nothing that screams the ‘90’s more than everyone’s favourite zip code! Those jeans…that hair!!!
7. Sega Genesis
I loved the Sega. My two favourite games were Sonic the Hedgehog and Alladin. I miss the Sega.
6. Joey & Pacey
I was never a Dawson girl…Pacey was the man. When him and Joey got together, they became my favourite couple of the ‘90’s.
5. The Rachel Haircut
I tried desperately to pull this look off in my later years of elementary school. I failed miserably. But I had to try… I think we all did!!
4. The Zack Morris Phone
Who didn’t want a cell phone like Zack’s? That boy and his phone were the bomb. (Zack + Kelly = 4Eva)
Oversized plaid shirts. Baggy jeans with freyed cuffs. Concert tees. (My first came from the Hip concert I went to in Grade 10!) I would never have called myself a “grunge” girl, but I sure did like the clothes.
I remember watching this movie for the first time in Stacy’s basement with the whole gang. I was the only one who hadn’t seen it yet, and they all had fun teasing me as I tried to figure out “whodunnit”. Despite the fact that is scared the crap out of me, I kind of loved it too. Plus, I wrote a song about it on the spot the first time I watched it - “Was it Stuey? Was it Dewey? Oh, I just know whoey killed the whole cast and crewey of Scream! AH!” Iconic.
1. Wade Redden & the Ottawa Senators
It was in ‘96-‘97 that I fell in love with the Sens and their young rookie d-man, 19-year-old Wade Redden. That was the year they first made the playoffs, and Blur’s Song 2 became our anthem. Look at how young he is… Today, he turns 35. Unbelievable…
Wow…That was a blast from the past! And I feel like I still missed so much! I could’ve easily done a Tuesday 20!! haha!!
