{ ten on tuesday - the tv soundtrack to my childhood }

A friend of mine was referring to something that had happened in the last ten years and it dawned on me that she mean the 1990s.  And that then brought on a whole different realization.

I didn't listen to a lot of music when I was younger but I did watch a lot of television.  (By the way, things that I did when I was younger I would never let my munchkins do now.)  I would consider this the soundtrack of my younger years.

Party of Five - not my favorite show but oh my, didn't Bailey Salinger have the cutest dimples?

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air - the ultimate theme song.  The song all other songs should bow down to. Word.

Saved by the Bell - my very first crush was Zach Morris. The only reason I would get up early on a Saturday morning.

Who's The Boss? - I wanted to be like Samantha Micelli so bad. She was the coolest girl when I began to realize that the characters were really actors. I also wanted to know why didn't we have a housekeeper?

Beverly Hills, 90210 - I only started watching because all my friends did. I consider it my introduction to the bad boy. I am talking about you Dylan McKay

Dawson's Creek - can I tell you how much I wanted to be Joey Potter. I watched a little 90210 when my mom worked late but this was the first show where I got the teen angst.

Full House - I watched Mary Kate and Ashley long before my oldest did.

Friends - I thought that this was what grown up life would be like.

Growing Pains - This was my favorite tv show for a long time. I love younger Leonardo DiCaprio.

Step By Step - Not my favorite show but it was apart of TGIF and therefore I had to watch it then.

Which one was your favorite?
