In a world divided by basically everything, there’s one thing we all can agree on: growing up in the ’90s was the absolute best.

You were dialing up to the internet on a monstrosity of a computer, probably with a free trial of AOL your parents got in the mail. You had a Discman with double bass boost and a sweet pair of Sony headphones with those foam pads over the ears. If you were lucky, your friend down the street had the coveted clear telephone AND a dedicated teen line. And every day after school, you cracked open some Sunny D and a package of Dunkaroos and settled in to watch the best shows on television, maybe ever. 

Full House. Saved by the Bell. Boy Meets World. Clarissa Explains It All. Sister, Sister. Beverly Hills, 90210. The Wonder Years. Friends. Dawson’s Creek. Home Improvement.

I mean, come on. The ’90s were full of the brand of simple joy we long for now as adults in our ’30s and ’40s. Maybe it was the lack of monthly bills and responsibility and the need to constantly feed every person living under your roof . . . but man, it really was the best.

And I was today years old when I learned there’s an entire weekend festival dedicated to our glory days. 

Friends, in case you’re like me and live under a rock, allow me to introduce you to 90s Con

Jennie Garth! Jason Priestley! Alicia Silverstone! Mario Lopez! Mark-Paul Gosselaar! Marc Summers! Melissa Joan Hart! Candace Cameron Bure! Steve Burns, people, Steve Burns

They and dozens of your other favorite stars from yesteryear are converging on Hartford, CT this weekend for the 3-day event (see the full list of celeb guests here). 

DJ Tanner herself posted a selfie from her flight on Friday, with perfect seatmate: Full House co-star Kimmie Gibbler (Andrea Barber) who appeared to be snoozing away in the window seat. 

“90’s Con is going down!!! Kimmie + Deej= insert caption here 😜” she wrote. 

And I think we can all agree Barber wins for the best caption in the comments section: “Yes, Deej, I’m awake! Let’s go over the Clipboard of Fun again! 😴 ”

Ahh, the memories. Who’s up for a last-minute trip to Hartford? I think our collective childhood is calling.

Ahem, Your Favorite 90s Shoes Are Back So Get Ready To Relive Your Fashion Glory Days

I have to tell you, one of the best weeks of my adult life occurred this past fall when my son, who is a freshman in high school, had “the 90s” for his class theme for spirit week. Why? Because my friends, I AM THE 90s. I turned 13 AND 21 in that glorious decade and I rocked it from start to finish. Unfortunately, his enthusiasm for me orchestrating his 90s outfits did not even come close to matching MY enthusiasm for the same endeavor. Sigh. The truth is, I long for the 90s. Badly. A quick trip through my...

We Lost Another Piece of Our Childhood When Bob Saget Died

In: Living
Bob Saget

As a kid, time seemed infinite.  We were always waiting for it to pass. To get a little bit taller so we could reach the bathroom faucet on our own. To get a few months older so we could stay up for I Love Lucy on Nick at Nite. To have a driver’s license. Stay out past midnight. Graduate. Get married. Start that family.  But now that we’re adults circling 40, we know the sobering truth: time is a double-edged thief.  Worse, that certainty we used to have that what constantly, predictably, comfortably was would, of course, always be is...

Growing Up in the ’80s Taught Me All I Need To Know About Friendship

In: Friendship
Two friends in the 80s

I first met Mary the summer before 6th grade at Camp Caroline Furnace. She was tall, thin, and blonde. I was short, pudgy, and brunette. She lived on a farm in rural Virginia. I lived in a Maryland suburb outside Washington, DC. Her parents were married; mine were divorced. She was athletic and played sports; I always got picked last for kickball. If we hadn’t both been assigned to cabin five that summer, we probably would never have become friends. But somehow, we hit it off and left camp that summer with our addresses scribbled on pieces of notebook paper, and...

Xennials: The New Name For The Micro-Generation Born Between 1977-1983

In high school, I communicated with boyfriends solely via our house phone. Nights were spent driving by popular hangouts like the corner store, hoping to run into other kids. I couldn’t lie when I called home because my parents had caller ID. I got my first email account in college, and I purchased my first cell phone in my 20s. And watching Dawson’s Creek and Felicity were essential to my well-being. I am, according to a recent article published on Did You Know?, a “xennial.” Apparently, xennials are a “micro-generation” of people born between 1977-1983. I fall smack in the...
