  1. Yay for the 30’s club! Haha! Love love love these pictures of you!! So cute. Home Alone is still one of my favorite movies. I am going to introduce Mason to it this Fall/Winter. I know he’ll love it! And I sure did love me some sweet valley high books! I love this post! Brings back so many memories. I thought I was Top Chef with my Easy Bake Oven! Haha. Pogs and Trolls…I had quite the collection of both! And Lisa Frank was my jam!!

  2. Excellent post & I love the pictures especially the one with you wearing your pink fanny pack - sexy! Ha! Loves it! :)

  3. I still want a Tamagotchi. That thing was amazing. I'm not sure I can forgive you for socks with sandals though...girl, what were you thinking?! =) Such cute pics though!!!! The 90s were pretty good times. Basically ALL of these things. All the way. Such a fun post!

  4. LOVE this! You listed pretty much everything from my childhood, lol. Pogs! Beanie Babies! Sweet Valley High! Total throwback and it's awesome :) Some of those pictures are priceless- I remember wearing regular socks like knee socks, and of course wearing them with sandals :) I just read Courtney's comment and I didn't realize she had said the same thing. Oh good times. Keep these coming!

  5. Pretty sure you need to bring those bangs back ASAP.

  6. You are really bringing me back! Nsync was my favorite! I loved Clueless and remember wanting to buy plaid skirts and knee high socks to wear to school! And heads up 7 up... Definitely a favorite game at school!

  7. What a fun post! I love love seeing photos of blogger before they were bloggers or moms or married.

  8. The 90s. Woah! I totally forgot about JTT, and Ace of Base!
    Ha! We also " tight rolled" our jeans, that was so cool right around 1993/4.

  9. Just catching up on some blog reading and wanted to stop by and say hi! I'm still reading, just from my phone in the middle of the night while feeding the baby, so commenting has been few and far between. Had to comment and say that I'm absolutely dying over these photos! I love them all so much! This is like a blast from my past too! Hilarious.

  10. So loving all of the family vacation photos! It's so funny looking through all of these bc I had some of the same fashions, I totally rocked the jean overalls and those sandals! Now all of that is coming back around! Did you scan those pictures onto your computer? They are good quality!
