  1. You has a great article. I'm very interesting to stopping here and leaves you a comment. Good work.

    Lets keep writing and share to us and other.

    Nb: Dont forget to leave your comment back for us.

  2. This is so great and conjures up many memories from the wonderful 90s. I'll never forget the Furby craze! Getting a radio station to play your favorite song was such a great feeling. Now all we need is YouTube. It's funny how things change. While we were in Nashville someone sang the theme song for Fresh Prince and I definitely still know every word...LOL!

  3. I had the metal lunchbox pictured...yeah I'm old! And the trapper keeper pictured. Yup, old!

  4. thanks for posting this. it brought back memories and put a smile on my face. :)


  5. Hahaha i LOVED the 90's except for the whole grunge thingy!

    And take your time about the email! I know you are busy but we should definitely pick a goal date and do it!



  6. I always wanted a furby!!!

    I'm not too embarrassed to admit that I looked for Lisa Frank stuff for school this semester. Didn't find any though. Boo!

  7. this was so fun, Full House was my favorite!!!! what about Kitty the pink cat? all my school materials had to be from Kitty Land! haha ..and, of course, TITANIC!!!! my room was filled with Leonardo Di Caprio posters!


  8. Love this! I was reading this list saying "yes, yes, yes!" Yesterday I did Cut-It-Out to someone and they didn't get it. It was tragic.
