    Talking You know you grew up in the 70s if you remember these

    My friend worldofdan sent this to me. It was fun walk down memory lane . How many do you remember? I remembered all of them.

    YOU KNOW YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL IN THE 70's IF:



    1. You wore that rainbow shirt that was half-sleeves and the rainbow went up

    the sleeve, across your chest and down the other.

    2. You made baby chocolate cakes in your Easy Bake Oven. You washed them

    down with The Snoopy Snow Cone Machine

    3. You had that Fisher Price Doctor's kit with a stethoscope that actually

    worked. After training with these tools you became an expert at the game of

    "operation"

    4. You owned a bicycle with a banana seat and a basket. In the early 80's

    you moved onto the ever popular 10 speed. Gosh that seat hurt!

    5. Your roller skates had metal wheels

    6. Admit it......you thought Gopher from Love Boat was cute

    7. You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island

    8. You had rubber boots for rainy days. Your shoes actually fit inside of

    the boots (with a little help from your Mom and some plastic bags).

    9. You had either a "bowlcut" or a "pixie" (not to mention the"Dorothy

    Hamill" because your Mom was sick of braiding your hair. How traumatic when

    people thought you were a boy!

    10. Your Holly Hobby sleeping bag was your most prized possession

    11. You wore a "poncho" with your faux fur "muff" and your Clogs

    12. You begged Santa for the electronic game...Simon

    13. You had the Donnie and Marie dolls with those pink and purple shredded

    outfits

    14. You spent hours out back on your metal swing set with the trapeze

    15. You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color

    16. You kept losing your mittens so your Mom bought you the kind that were

    attached by a string

    17. Your Hello Kitty pencil case was cuter than anyone else's

    18. You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really bad

    19. You wore that Little House on the Prairie-inspired plaid, ruffled shirt

    with the high neck in at least one school picture. You despised Nellie

    Olson!

    20. You wanted your first kiss to be at the roller rink

    21. You tried to make sure that no boys would grab the comb out of your back

    pocket and skate away at the roller rink.

    22. Your hairstyle was described as having "wings".

    23. Strawberry Shortcake and her friends Blueberry Muffin and Huckleberry

    Pie

    24. You carried a Muppets lunch box to school

    25. You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazard

    was your boyfriend

    26. You memorized every song on the "Annie" movie and know at least one

    person who immediately went out and got the Annie afro. Every now and then

    "Its A Hard Knock Life" will pop into your brain and you can't stop singing

    it all day

    27. You had Star Wars action figures, too

    28. You thought unicorns were real

    29. It was a big event in your household each year when the "Wizard of Oz"

    would come on TV. Break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!

    30. You wanted to be a part of the Von Trapp family.

    31. Who will you marry: Shawn Cassidy, Leif Garret,KC and the Sunshine Band

    or Rick Springfield?

    32. You completely wore-out your Grease, Saturday Night Fever, Footloose and

    Flashdance soundtrack albums

    33. You tried to do lots of arts and crafts things, like yarn & popsicle

    stick God's Eyes or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom.

    34. Shrinky-dinks! I still remember how the oven smelled when they were

    "baking". Did you have the "dull" colored pencil kind or the "shiny" magic

    marker kind?

    35. You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable

    tape recorder up to the speaker

    36. You couldn't wait to get the free animal poster that came when you

    ordered books from the Weekly Reader book orders your teacher would give you

    37. The order catalogs looked like miniature newspapers

    38. You learned everything you needed to know about girl issues from Judy

    Blume books. Are you there God? It's me Margaret

    39. Care Bears

    40. You thought Olivia Newton John's song "Physical" was about aerobics.

    41. Friendship pins which you wore on your tennis shoes

    42. Colorforms

    43. Shoelaces with heart or rainbow designs.

    44. You wore knickers.

    45. You collected Smurfs.

    46. You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.

    47. Charlie's Angels dolls. I still have mine.
