Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

70's child? LOL

IF you were a little girl in the 70's...
I myself don't remember much of the 70's but I do remember the late 70's early 80's. So here we go:

You had that Fisher Price Doctor's Kit with a stethoscope that actually worked. (yes)


You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a plastic basket with flowers on it. (YES for my 9th bday I got a pink and white one and named it Sugarfoot LOL)

You learned to skate with actual skates (not roller blades) that had metal wheel s. (yep and the ball bearings fascinated me)

You thought Gopher from Love Boat was cute (admit it!) (no)


You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island . (no)

You had either a 'bowl cut' or 'pixie', not to mention the 'Dorothy Hamill'. People sometimes thought you were a boy. ( I had a longish version of it :)

You had rubber boots for rainy days and Moon boots for snowy days. (moon boots yes lol)

YEAH! You owned a 'Slip-n-Slide', on which you injured yourself on a sprinkler head more than once. (nope)


You owned 'Klick-Klacks' and smacked yourself in the face more than once ! (what are those?)

Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized posse ssion. (I had a stuffed Holly Hobbie)

You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers. (nope)

You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon. (nope)

You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink and purple satiny shredded outfits, or the sun shine family (ahhh no!)

You spent hours in your backyard on your metal swing set with the trapeze. The swing set tipped over at least once.(yep lol but I was very uncoordinated)

You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color. (Oh yeah!) (nope)

You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle). You also had a pair of salt-water sandals. (no)

You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really bad; you wore that Little House on the Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffle shirt with the high neck in at least one school picture; and you despised Nellie Oleson! (umm I still do LOL)

You wanted your first kiss to be at a roller rink! (no I was very uncoordinated and almost broke my wrist skating in 6th grade.)

PONG! ('video tennis' ) was the most remarkable futuristic game you've ever heard of !(my cousin had Atari, we played ET and collected REeces Pieces!)


Your hairstyle was described as having 'wings' or 'feathers' and you kept it 'pretty' with the comb you kept in your back pocket. When you walked, the 'wings' flapped up and down, looked like you were gonna 'take off' . (no it was 80's before my hair became an issue..lots of teasing and hairspray)


You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as her friends, Blueberry Muffin and Huckleberry Pie. (I love vintage SS.)

You carried a Muppets lunch box to school and it was metal, not plastic.
(nope )

You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend. (yes and in 1st grade the cutest boy was Lee Skaggs, he had beauuuutiful feathered hair like Bo Duke!.)


YOU had Star Wars action figures, too! (my cousins all did.)


It was a big event in your household each year when the 'Wizard of Oz' would come on TV. (yes that is a shame its so available now.)


You often asked your Magic-8 ball the question: 'Who will I marry. Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or David Cassidy?' (no and no and no)

You completely wore out your Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Fame soundtrack record album. (Grease yes lol)


You tried to do lots of arts and crafts, like yarn and Popsicle-stick God's eyes, decoupage, or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom. (nope not too crafty back then)


You made Shrinky-Dinks and put iron-on kittens on your t-shirts! (my mom did lol)


You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape player up to the speaker.. (I did that but later in the 80's)


You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat. (no but I used to love reading them)


You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy Blume books. (Are you there God, It's me, Margaret.) (yep)


You thought Olivia Newton John's song 'Physical' was about aerobics. (?? its not??) ( yep)


You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or r ai nb o w designs. (YES I loved those!)


You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer. (nope!)


You drowned yourself in Love's Baby Soft - which was the first 'real' perfume you ever owned. (lol I think so)

You glopped your lips in Strawberry Roll-on lip-gloss till it almost dripped off. (nope)


That was fun! Now you know a little bit more about me

lol xoxo melzie
