10 THINGS TOTALLY 80s
There were so many different ways I could have done this, but I decided to just share 1 thing from 10 different pop culture trends. Obviously, I could have probably come up with a list of 10 things in each category, but these are either the first thing that came to mind or my favorite or a special memory I have.

- Band - Poison
- Heaththrob - River Phoenix
- Fashion Trend - Pinned jeans
- TV show - Full House
- Car - Ford Aerostar
- Electronic gadget - Nintendo Entertainment System
- Home Appliance - Microwave oven
- Health - Jane Fonda workout videos
|I don't know what it is about this movie, but it's hands down my favorite 80s movie.|
|I loved this song when I was young. |
Oddly, it reminds me of the swingset in our backyard growing up.
My husband likes to rank Cyndi Lauper with Shakespeare because of how many times this song has been covered. lol.
|My older sisters would listen to this band, and I remember sneaking into their room to borrow their cassette tapes.|
|River was one of my first crushes! Oh, I was in love. :D|
|I scoured the Internet for a good picture of pinned jeans, and I could find NONE! I was hoping to re-create one this morning before work, but ran out of time. Hopefully I'll update this post later with a good picture.|
|UPDATE: I finally found a picture online. From a fellow Listicler, of course! Thanks, Ellen for letting me use your fab picture. :D|
|I watched a LOT of 80s TV shows, but I this was definitely one of my favorites.|
|When asking my husband for help with this post, he came up with this category. And the Aerostar. He said everyone seemed to have this car. |
And then I remembered that I'm pretty sure my family had one, too.
|I remember when this came out. It was definitely the MUST HAVE gift of the time. We got one, and my brothers played it a LOT.|
|I think the 80s is when this appliance really sprang into popularity. I remember meeting a new family in the late 80s who didn't have one, and I thought it was so weird!|
|Lastly, since this is a fitness blog, I can't leave out a popular health trend from the 80s!|
Now, why not head over to The good life to read all the other fabulous lists. I wonder which topic will be the most popular this week...
