Tuesday 10: Favourite Things about the ‘90’s

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)

3.  Grunge

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.

2. Scream

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!!

Thanks, Lena & Veronica for hosting such a fun Tuesday 10!

Stacie said...

No, you did not have a NKOTB doll! I love the 90's and yes Joey and Pacey were the best!

I graduated high school in 1991. I really identify more with the late 80s.
I do remember most of thses things though--NKOTB, Saved by the Bell, BH 90210.
I even listened to grunge, but hated Nirvana.

I had the Joey Doll and that same discman. Man did that thing suck up batteries. I love your list!

Veronica and Daniel said...

Great list! I LOVE that 90210 picture with the jeans :) And the Zach Morris phone, haha! If only we knew then how silly they were! Thanks for linking up!

Mindy said...

What a flash back! I forgot all about the discman. We thought they were so cool and high tech!! haha little did we know!?

I loved all of those thing (with the excpetion of the Sens). I was not a hockey fan in the 90's. :)

And btw, I was team Pacey too...:)

Impulsive Addict said...

Wow! You just totally took me back to my fav time period.

NKOTB was amazeballs. That DOLL is awesome. I never had any of their dolls. =(

90210--I still enjoy old re-runs. Don't tell anybody because I will deny it.

Zach's phone!!! HAHAHA! I totally remember that!!

Loved this post! Thanks for linking it up, girly!

Sheena said...

Oh yeah, Pacey was the man. Still love Josh Jackson!

Jo said...

90210 -- the big question who would you pick Brandon or Dylan? I was a total Dylan girl :)

O and Pacey... I was a total fan

Brandy said...

So remember discmans!

Emmy said...

Love this post!! I had that Discman! I used to try and bring it with when I delivered papers but of course all the walking made it skip sometimes.

And that picture from 90210 is hilarious! Aladdin was my favorite on Sega too!!
I think I was always back and forth between Dawson and Pacey.

Wade Redden - Crazy! Doesn't feel that long ago that he was a member of the Sens.

Lil Lambz said...
