I was born in 81 so those really brought back a lot of memories! I wanted to be Punky Brewster and I used to pretend our Golden Retriever was Brandon. I lived in Jellies. I read every Babysitters Club book. I had a Strawberry Shortcake sleeping bag and birthday party. And the list goes on and on. I haven't seen St. Elmo's Fire, but I added it to my Netflix!!!
