And the 90’s for that matter.
Even though I was working full time and being an official adult most of the ’90s.
It takes me back to a time when I could throw down jams.
While wearing leg warmers.
And drinking Crystal Pepsi.
|Me in 1987. Just wait, the hair gets bigger in the ’90s.|
So when I saw that Netflix added some totally gnarly movies and TV shows to its April lineup?
I totally had a cow.
Because that is like wicked gnarly to the max.
Inviting my girls into the time period that my hubs and I grew up and did most of the best television and movie watching, like ever, is kind of exciting.
And realitysmackingyouintheface inducing.
HOW HAS IT BEEN 27 YEARS SINCE DIRTY DANCING WAS IN THE THEATER????
22 years ago Saved By The Bell…ENDED.
Let that sink in.
|Told ya. 1992. BIGGER.|
One title that is my 14-year-old daughter’s favorite from the ’80s is Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.
She has been watching that with us since she was 5.
Earmuffs during the airport scene.
This summer, I plan to have a John Hughes movie night with her and her friends.
I want to introduce them to the likes of Pretty in Pink, Breakfast Club and the list goes on and on.
My six-year-old loves classics like the Smurfs, Curious George, and Strawberry Shortcake.
I totally missed the bus on Strawberry Shortcake.
It came out when I was in the transitional phase of being “too cool” for cartoons.
Then secretly binge watching them when no one was looking.
