Donna, David, Brenda, & Dylan

Last week my 18 year old niece asked me what to wear for a college 90's party.   The 90's.  I FREAKING LOVE THE 90's.  My running playlist consists of songs like:  Run DMC - It's Tricky, En Vogue - Free Your Mind, Billy Ocean - Get out of my Dreams and the dorkiness list continues...

But the 90's had it all.  And I was shocked that my dearest niece couldn't think of anything to wear.  Sadly, I no longer possess my teal MC Hammer pants for her to borrow.  But I do own my Donna Martin Graduates shirt.  But just think back to the TGIF days, the 90's fashion, and all the heart felt memories that these shows created for us:

1.  Blossom - Who didn't want to rock the flower baby doll dresses, big hats, combat boots, and hear Joey say, "WHOA" every day??  Because I sure did.  

2.  Full House - "What ever happened to predictibility? The milkman, the paperboy, evening TV. Everywhere you look , everywhere you go (there's a heart). There's a heart. A hand to hold onto."   You know you are picturing Jesse, Joey, Bob Saget, and the Olson twins running across the grass in good ol San Fran in the TV's opener.  As cheesy as this show was and still is, I just can't help watching reruns at odd hours of the night.  Just takes me back. 

3.  Saved by the Bell"When I wake up in the morning and the alarm gives out a warning.  It's alright cause I'm saved by the....It's alright 'coz I'm saved by the Bell"  New Belgium Brewery might make my favorite six pack, but my favorite pack of six friends that got me through some tough times was Zach, Kelly, Lisa, Jesse, Slater, and Screech.  Who hasn't had these six touch and change their lives in one way or another.  I mean, "Doing the Lisa" became one of my favorite dances and the song "I'm so excited" never had the same meaning after the drugged addicted Jesse screamed out, "I'm so scared."  I really have these six to thank for many things such as over sized scrunchies and an endless crush on Zach Morris and AC Slater.  

4.  90210:  Now I can't post the lyrics to this one, but this song is so well known and brings back such good memories to me, that it too ends up on my work out playlist.  (Don't worry, the dork meter continues to rise for Kat.)   90210 had it all.  Love triangles, booze at prom, the Peach Pit, the Noxzema girl, and yes...the first McDreamy: Dylan McKay.  And unlike the Bell, 90210 was actually very successful in the College Years and even beyond.  I can't tell you enough how much I wish I had the box set of this Spelling Masterpiece.   And I must put on the record that the new 90210...does not even compare!! 


  1. in my defense. i barely remember the 90s!! I was nine when they ended lol

  2. Just found Saved by the Bell reruns on TBS in the early morning. Makes time on the elliptical pass pretty quickly! Oh and 90210, my fav! Wanted to be one of those girls so badly! Sad that they're having 90s themed parties, makes me feel ancient!
