7. Your favorite piece of jewelry used to be edible… you liked to wear your jewelry and eat it, too.

8. Some part of you still thinks that Saturday mornings were made for cartoons.

19. All your female friends used to glitter.

Because belly buttons were made to hold glitter.

20. There was time in your life that you collected circular pieces of cardboard, stacked them up, and threw a heavy chip at them to watch them topple. Pogs (aka milk caps) and Slammers were serious business in the 90’s. If you got this reference, you’re probably a 90’s kid.

So, what do you think? Any other 90’s nostalgia you’d like to share?
