If you were a little Girl in 70's ~ Teenager in the 80's!!

A friend of mine sent me this email.
I thought it was sooo cute so I wanted to share!


~ You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked.

~ You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a plastic basket with flowers on it.

~ You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller blades) that had metal w heels.

~ You thought Gopher from Love Boat was cute (admit it!)

~ You had either a 'bowl cut' or 'pixie', not to mention the 'Dorothy Hamill' People sometimes thought you were a boy.

~ YEAH! You owned a 'Slip-n-Slide' , on which you injured yourself on a sprinkler head more than once. ~ You owned 'Klick-Klacks' and smacked yourself in the face more than once !

~ You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.

~ You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon.

~ You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink and purple satiny shredded outfits, or the sunshine family. ( I had Both! LOL!)

~ You spent hours in your backyard on your metal swing set with the trapeze. The swing set tipped over at least once. You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color. (Oh yeah!)

~ You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really bad; you wore that Little House on the Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffle shirt with the high neck in at least one school picture; and you despised Nellie Oleson!

~ You wanted your first kiss to be at a roller rink!

~ PONG! ('video tennis' ) was the most remarkable futuristic game you've ever heard of !

~Your hairstyle was described as having 'wings' or 'feathers' and you kept it 'pretty' with the comb you kept in your back pocket. When you walked, the 'wings' flapped up and down, looked like you were gonna 'take off'.

~ You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as her friends, Blueberry Muffin and Huckleberry Pie.

~ You carried a Muppets lunch box to school and it was metal, not plastic.

~ You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend.

~ YOU had Star Wars action figures, too!

~ It was a big event in your household each year when the 'Wizard of Oz' would come on TV. Your mom would break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!

~ You often asked your Magic-8 ball the question: 'Who will I marry. Shaun Cassidy or Leif Garrett ?'

~ You completely wore out your Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Fame soundtrack record albums.

~ You tried to do lots of arts and crafts, like yarn and Popsicle-stick God's eyes, decoupage, or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom. ( I KNOW alot of us did these!!)

~ You made Shrinky-Dinks and put iron-on kittens on your t-shirts!

~ You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape player up to the speaker.

~ YOU Were the channel changer!!!!!

~You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.

~ You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy Blume books. (Are you there God, It's me, Margaret.)

~ You thought Olivia Newton John's song 'Physical' was about aerobics. (its not??)

~ You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or rainbow designs.

~ You drowned yourself in Love's Baby Soft - which was the first 'real' perfume you ever owned.

~ You glopped your lips in Strawberry Roll-on lip-gloss till it almost dripped off.
OH YES....Those Were The Days!!!

~That made me think of one...
You wanted the Archie Bunker Grandson Doll, but your Mom said No!!! (And we all know NOW why she did!)

You have such a beautiful home. I am glad to see that you are back to posting. But my goodness, you are a busy lady!! Good luck with all the projects. My youngest daughter just got married last summer, so I know what you're going through! I know it will all pull together; somehow it always does!
