I was born in 1984. So, when I stumbled across I'm Remembering yesterday, I completely dorked out for like an hour.

Do you remember these 80's/early 90's things?

Tan M&M's. Before blue, there was tan. I totally remember the switch. Do you?

Stick-on earrings. When relatives didn't know what to get me for Christmas, I ended up with tons of these. I'm pretty sure there's even a picture of me putting them on my Grandpa...

Legends of the Hidden Temple on Nickelodeon. Every day after school. The Temple Run was always my favorite part, especially the Shrine of the Silver Monkey.

Hairbows made from shoelaces. I am absolutely certain that I had some blue & gold ones (my school colors from kindergarten until I graduated high school. W-W Tiger Pride!)

Life is like a hurricane, here in Duckburg
Race cars, lasers, aeroplanes - it's a duck blur
You might solve a mystery.... or rewrite history
DUCK TALES, a-woo-ooo!
Lydia, I know you remember this one! It was our favorite!

I think it's safe to say I'll be following the I'm Remembering blog from now on for the sheer happiness 80's/90's nostalgia brings me.

What were some of your favorite things from childhood?

I loved Thundercats, Friendship bracelets, bananna clips, Star Search, and my Cabbage Patch Dolls.
Fun to remember!

Okay, now I officially feel old... at least I'm going kicking and screaming!

I remember candy cigarettes, The Osmond Brothers and Jackson 5 cartoons, elephant bell bottoms. Yikes!

They had the tan M&Ms whenI was a kid too... I always thought of them as milk chocolate and the brown ones as dark chocolate.

Tan M&M's were the best...I remember I voted for purple as the new color...

I remember voting for the new M&M color. I would wait for my Mom to pick me up from basketball practice and I would use the pay phone and just call the 1-800 number over and over. Duck Tales was super awesome and Do you remember Darkwing Duck? I had completely forgot until I saw a guy wearing a Darkwing Duck t-shirt.
This is awesome, Thanks for sharing!

I love the show You Can't do that On Television on Nickelodeon.
