Harris and I love to reminisce. Fortunately, our childhoods give us a lot of material. Sometimes she and I will email back and forth all day about things that we remember fondly from decades ago. Maybe it's food, a person, a TV show or movie, or just something that made us feel weird to see decades later. I won't leave you hanging anymore; here are a few things I remember fondly...

Fruity Pebbles remind me of going to the beach with my family and my Mimi. My mom always thought it was so funny and strange that Mimi ate Fruity Pebbles during weeks like those.

We played a LOT of video games. Mario Bros. (1, 2 and 3), Tetris, Dr. Mario...you name it. I bet I could still remember the "secrets," too.

Boiled peanuts will always remind me of going to Dudy Noble Field with my dad. There are some pretty cute pictures of us there, one of which Harris has her beloved Pound Purry "Kitty" with her.

What girl doesn't get nostalgic about Barbies? I could have (and probably did) played with my Barbies all day, every day. We even had the house with the elevator. I think I might have pushed it over on Harris at some point...

I watched a tape (yes, a tape) of old-school Winnie the Pooh for years. The only thing that stopped me watching it was the wear and tear on the VHS. I still love it. Pooh-koo clock? Come ON!

Isn't it funny what sticks with some people. Do you ever get nostalgic? If so, about what?
