80's child.

This is kind of my tribute to my childhood and the 80's. Oh yes, I was an 80s child. When I was growing up, cartoons were only on on Saterday mornings, and they were early. If you didn't get up, you didn't watch them. Here are some of my favorite cartoons as a child in no certain order.

The Snorks

Children of the Corn ~ scared the crap out of me!!

The Lost Boys ~ ahh Corey Haim ~ I thought he was so cute!

Photobucket

Beetlejuice

Photobucket

A Christmas Story

Photobucket

Dirty Dancing ~ I was never allowed to watch this one, but it just seemed like it would be sooo cool!

Photobucket

Then there was the eighties music. I wasn't that into Micheal Jackson, but I do remember when he looked like this!

Photobucket

I was one of those little girls who swooned over New Kids on the Block! I had their videos, posters, tapes. Yep cassette tapes, cds werent all that in back then. I am not sure if they were even invented then... hmmm, maybe I should google that one! Well I did and they were. I guess I just didn't have one.

Photobucket

Then came my mom's nightmare...the hair bands. Oh how I loved the eighties hair bands and being around ten and eleven at the end of the erra, I started noticing those hair band hotties! LOL. Down came the New Kids on the Block and up went the hairbands. I am sure my mom cringed everytime she came in my room.

Poisen

Guns and Roses

Photobucket

Bon Jovi

Photobucket

Oh and who could forget the fashion!! The neon clothes the huge hair. slap bracelets, you could actually wear the little plastic bracelets with out them meaning anything like they do now (which really makes me mad, by the way).
The huge ear rings and biker shorts. And can you believe this stuff is actually coming back in style?

Photobucket

The hot clothes ~ notice the sexy socks with those high heels, well guess I should say leg warmers.

Photobucket

Oh and the out fit that I wanted so bad!! I didn't get it of course, but I wanted it.

Photobucket

We, like kids now, had our own slang. We said things like far out, totally, not, psych, no way dude, and the whole valley girl talk where like every other like word was like like. And Oh my Gaaaawd. Thinking back it was probally one of the silliest erras in history. I so wish had been born in the sixties and seventies, but nope I got stuck in those 80s. I guess it was fun. I would like to challenge you all to play along and do a tribute to your childhood and erra. If you do, please let me know! It would be like totally far out dude!

Ummm, I went to see the Jackson 5 in Knoxville in 6th grade. I knew every word to Guns N' Roses - my friends and I used to fight over who was going to marry Jon Bon Jovi.....totally 80's! Love it!

Hope said...

Like, good post today, totally!! LOL What a challenge you have proposed! Let's see now, which one of my childhoods do I want to post about??

I so remember the 80's dude! I went through all that ordeal with my kids!! To me the 80's were a blessing compared to the 70's! I hated the 70's, riots going on, bad hair styles and clothes.. yelling "Peace man" as they rioted and looted!! yuck!

Sad thing here, the 80's seems so long ago now! :o)

Love ya,
Aunt Hopie

Well Brandy
It was a cute post but I feel very very old. I graduated in 1968 and you dear were not even thought of yet. Puppy( my one and only child) was born in 1987. So while you were growing up I was a young (old) Mother. I always said I was a late bloomer.
Peace

Denise said...

Very cool post sweetie. Bon Jovi, woo hoo.

Hope said...

Love ya,
Aunt Hopie

Good Morning Brandy,
Well, I am here for a visit. I didn't post on Monday or even visit. I was still sickly in the bed and I am feeling much better today. I am still sleepy as I've been up since around 3:00a.m. I am going to go lay back down in a few minutes. I loved your post today. I was a 60's child. I was born in 1962 as a matter of fact. I do remember the 80's tho. I graduated High School in 1980. I remember Guns and Roses and Bon Jovi. I remember the look of the poofed up hair. I love the look of your blog. You have been busy with it. When you have time, drop back by. I have some things for you from my Wednesday's post. Take care my friend and have a great day. May God Bless You and Yours.

Love & Hugs,
Karen H.

jennifer said...

I REALLY like the new look - I miss the pretty picture of you though! My eighties were a little different from your eighties - I graduated in 89. Yes I wanted the look. Seventeen magazine and Young Miss magazine's were read til they about fell apart because I knew they would tell me how to make that ONE guy fall in love with me. Never happened. I actually wore legwarmers but not in public - just in dance class. I would have added Prince too. And Duran Duran. And Menudo. And Madonna. See? So much about the music and it's affect on the 80's.

This was a great post. come by and tell me about the link to the new templates. I would like to change my site and in a way, it suits me as it is. But I am curious..... Jennifer

Sarah said...

Such memories! I don't reckon you missed anything not being able to watch Dirty Dancing...although a zillion people would tell you I'm wrong, lol!

I loved the bubble-perm rockers for a while too. Just too funny really. And I wanted to look like Madonna from Deperately Seeking Susan.

Hugs.

ukok said...

Oh yeah, I would recognise those bad hair styles anywhere....I used to own one of them!

Hi Brandy,
What a wonderful post about your exciting past in the 80s. I also love Duck Tales. When we look back at what was "in" in the 80s, they seem to be very funny right now. How times have changed indeed. Thanks for the nostalgic trip down memory lane. God bless you and your loved ones always.

Sarah said...

Lol I love the new header.

Hope said...

Where are you, girl? I'm beginning to think you really did get lost in the 80's!!

Love ya!
