5 Iconic Olympic Moments Every Millennial Will Remember

We are just a few days in to the 2018 Winter Olympics taking place in PyeongChang, South Korea. I’ve been glued to my television watching the Olympics Opening Ceremony, figure skating, skiing, luge and snowboarding. Sports that I have not given one thought to since the last Olympics are now suddenly all I care about. Curling, anyone? I love it!

Celebrating Team U.S.A. and watching the inspiring stories of all of these athletes got me thinking back on some of the Olympic games from the 80s and 90s. Friends, families, strangers, all gathered around the television set to cheer for our country and follow some of the most captivating stories from the games. Good times! For any Millennial, the following five Olympic events are legendary. Get ready to wave that American flag! Read more

The Ultimate Watch Guide | 80s Romantic Comedy Movies

You may find affiliate links in this post. All opinions are my own. For more information, please read our disclosure statement.

Romantic Comedies just aren’t what they used to be. So many of the plot lines in the rom-coms today feel tired and overused. Nerdy girl/guy gets a makeover and falls in love with super-cool popular kid. Woman who was scorned and vows to stay away from men escapes to a far-off land and meets a foreign stranger who makes her believe in love again. Two people square-off over an important issue and while they are at odds, fall for each other proving that opposites attract. Did I miss any? Don’t get me wrong, though, I love a romantic comedy movie just as much at the next gal. I just happen to think that some of the best ones were made in the 1980s.

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner (this is your warning, people), I couldn’t resist putting together the Ultimate Watch Guide for 80s Romantic Comedy Movies. These movies are the perfect way to get in the romantic mood before the holiday or to enjoy with your special valentine during a night in. Take a look below to read more about my top five picks for 80s Romantic Comedy Movies. Read more

It’s Only a Happy Meal Because Of the Toy

I have no answer for you. I cannot tell you why. There is no reason for why my parents chose to keep and protect a plastic bin full of old, fast-food restaurant kid’s meal toys. I am not sure if they thought my brother and I would want to pass them on to our children or if they considered the toys may be worth money someday or maybe they thought they could be used as currency in a future apocalypse. Though I cannot fathom the reason behind them keeping such a random and weird artifact from my childhood, I am certainly glad they did.

During a recent visit home, my dad brought out this box of ancient artifacts and we went through them for a old-times-sake. It was entertaining and heartwarming and puzzling all at the same time. Some toys I remembered fondly, some toys I can’t even believe were made and some toys I have absolutely no idea who they heck they are. I pulled some of the most entertaining toys from the box, did a little bit of research on each one and wanted to share my findings with you all in hopes that it will bring back sweet memories of sitting in the drive-thru, smelling that glorious scent of french fries and anxiously awaiting the surprise of what toy would be including with your meal. Bon appetite and enjoy! Read more

7 New Year’s Resolutions To Make You Feel Like a Kid Again

I have not made a New Year’s Resolution in probably 12 years.

So, instead of making a resolution to work out, eat better, get a new job, save money, be more organized or some other boring, grown-up resolution, I suggest some more fun-loving and good-for-the-soul resolutions. Resolutions that will make you feel young again. Here’s hoping these inspire you to make some awesome resolutions of your own in 2018 that bring back memories of your childhood. Read more
