    You Know You Were A Little Girl In The 70's If.....

    This brings back a lot of memories of when I was growing up in the 70's, how about you?

    YOU KNOW YOU WERE A LITTLE GIRL IN THE 70'S IF.....

    You wore that rainbow shirt that had half-sleeves, and a rainbow that went up one sleeve, across your chest, and down the other.

    You made baby chocolate cakes in Your Easy Bake Oven. You washed them down with snow cones from Your Snoopy Snow Cone Machine.

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

    You owned a bicycle with a banana seat, handlebar streamers, and a basket.

    You owned roller skates with metal wheels. (Maybe even the one's that attached over top of your shoes!)

    You thought Gopher from The Love Boat was cute. (Admit it!)

    You had nightmares after watching Fantasy Island.

    You had rubber boots for rainy/snowy days - remember Moon Boots?
    (Then you advanced to Duck Shoes in the 80s.)

    You had an orange Tupperware lunchbox, or a metal Muppets lunchbox with matching thermos.

    You had either a "bowl cut" or a "pixie", not to mention the "Dorothy Hamill". How traumatic when people thought that you were a boy.

    Your Holly Hobbie sleeping bag was your most prized possession.

    You wore a poncho, gauchos, and knickers.

    You begged Santa for the electronic game, Simon.

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

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

    You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color.

    You had a pair of Doctor Scholl's sandals (the ones with hard sole & the buckle).

    You wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder really badly. 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 Olson!

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

    Your hairstyle was described as having "wings" and You kept it "pretty" with the rainbow/purple/pink plastic comb you kept in your back pocket.

    You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as who her friends; Blueberry Muffin, Apple Dumpling, and Huckleberry Pie were.

    You and your girlfriends would fight over which of the Dukes of Hazzard was your boyfriend.

    Every now and then "It's A Hard Knock Life" from the movie, "Annie" will pop into your brain and you can't stop singing it the whole day.

    You had Star Wars action figures.

    It was a big event in your household each year when the "Wizard of Oz" would come on TV. Your mom would break out the popcorn and sleeping bags!

    You had the "Wizard of Oz" doll set , too.

    You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat.

    You asked your Magic-8 Ball the question: "Who will I marry...Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or Rick Springfield?"

    You completely wore out your "Grease", "Saturday Night Fever", and "Fame" soundtrack albums.

    You tried to do lots of arts and crafts things, like yarn and Popsicle stick God's Eyes or those weird potholders made on a plastic loom.

    You made Shrinky-Dinks!

    You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape recorder up to the speaker.

    You couldn't wait to get the free animal poster that came when you ordered books from the Weekly Reader book club.

    You learned everything you needed to know about girl's issues from Judy Blume books like; "Are You there God? It's me, Margaret."

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

    You wore friendship pins on your tennis shoes, or shoelaces with heart or rainbow designs.

    You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer.

    You had a Big Wheel with a brake on the side, and a Sit-n-Spin.

    Your hairstyle was described as having "wings" and You kept it "pretty" with the rainbow/purple/pink plastic comb you kept in your back pocket.
    Oh yeah!

    You learned everything you needed to know about girl's issues from Judy Blume books like; "Are You there God? It's me, Margaret."
    Guilty as charged.

    To know which ones apply to me see the original list. I was the little girl of the 70s.

    You can still get those barrettes at the store and some of them are actually being sold in the sets again...ribbon included.

    I had the holly Hobby lunchbox and the strawberry shortcake sleeping bag.

    When I was in the fourth grade our class was in the theatrical production of Annie. "The sun'l come out tomorrow..."

    Not only did we aregue over who was dating Bo from Dukes, but who got to be anyone but sabrina from Charlie's Angels.

    I can not believe how many of these actually apply. I am going to try to scan a picture of my pixie doo that my brother helped cut.
    It occurred to me that no matter how bleak things might seem at times, at least I have a head. ----Stargazer

    A few of these apply to me, but these are the ones that are just too funny when you think about them!!!

    You had subscriptions to Dynamite and Tiger Beat. Did I ever!

    You asked your Magic-8 Ball the question: "Who will I marry...Shaun Cassidy, Leif Garrett, or Rick Springfield?"I preferred the older man, Rick Springfield!!! His song, Jessie's girl, was one of my favorite songs!

    You completely wore out your "Grease", "Saturday Night Fever", and "Fame" soundtrack albums.

    You used to tape record songs off the radio by holding your portable tape recorder up to the speaker.

    You wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer. Now, who didn't want to be a Solid Gold Dancer!!!

    I didn't realize girls bought Star Wars action figures, too.

    And my brother bought me a Shrinky Dink oven for Christmas last year because I enjoyed making them so much as a kid! I have actually used my oven in the past year to make little doodads for my kids.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey
