Flashback Friday: Childhood Cartoons

Taking a trip down memory lane today…. a loooooong trip!  One that brings me back to my childhood Saturday mornings, which were designated as our cartoon watching time.  My sister and I were allowed to get up early and watch TV, as long as we were quiet and let mom and dad sleep in a bit 🙂 We would eat our animal crackers and enjoy our Saturday Morning-Filled-Bliss.

Here’s a look into my top 5 shows (in no particular order):

1. Get Along Gang

2. Snorkels

3. Smurfs

4. Shirt Tales

5. Fraggle Rock

Mind you, there were many others we enjoyed along the way… Inspector Gadget, Strawberry Shortcake, Care Bears, Muppet Babies…. after all, this was the era when Saturday was the only day you really got to watch TV as a kid.  Regular days were actually filled with school and playing outside with your friends.  But ohhhhhh, those joyous Saturdays 🙂

Any Saturday Cartoons you remember from your childhood??? 


From childhood to adulthood…

I read this the other day on another blog and so I decided to steal borrow the topic for myself.  The question was:

When you were 16, where did you think you’d be at age 30?  (or, what did you want to be when you were a ‘grown-up’)

Growing up, I changed my mind A LOT of what I wanted to be.  Probably depending on the day or my mood, is what I wanted to be.  But one idea that stuck around, amongst the coming and going jobs, was this:  I wanted to be the 1st woman president of the United States.  

I actually majored in political science the first semester of college….before changing to Communications, to Undecided, to Chemical Engineering, to Psychology, and finally to Elementary Education with a minor in Psychology (which I have my degree in).  

Ok. So ‘change’ in my life still hasn’t “changed” much…but I no longer have aspirations to become a U.S. President, and I DEFINITELY didn’t think I’d become what I am now!

Question for all of you: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?  What did you become?
