Our Keepsake Journal is Here! 🎉

Are you the kind of woman who has tweens and teens, an aging dog or cat, and a strict 10 p.m. bedtime?

Are you the kind of woman who spends more time driving children around than seems humanly possible, probably in a mid-sized, it’s-a-few-years-old-and-kinda-filthy SUV? 

Are you the kind of woman whose social media feed is full of ads for anti-aging creams and makeup hacks for “mature skin,” and who’s still not quite sure what the functional difference between TikToks and Reels actually is?

If you can call yourself that kind of woman, then in the ’90s you were the kind of girl who definitely watched Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman on CBS. You probably thought  Dr. Michaela Quinn was ridiculously smart and brave out there in the 19th-century Colorado wilderness and Byron Sully was ruggedly handsome with That Hair and the two of them together? Perfection.  

Well, women of a certain age, we’re in for a treat.

Jane Seymour and Joe Lando are reuniting on the small screen . . . not, unfortunately, as their beloved Dr. Quinn characters Dr. Mike and Sully, but as love interests in a Lifetime Christmas movie.

According to Lifetime, “A Christmas Spark” (executive produced by Toni Braxton!) stars Seymour as Molly, a recently widowed woman who “has lost her zest for life and given up on ever finding love again.” Lando (no long hair anymore, I checked—sad face) plays Hank, “the most eligible bachelor” in the town where Molly’s daughter lives, the town Molly visits for Christmas looking to boost her spirits. Turns out Molly was a former drama teacher, and takes a job directing the town’s Christmas pageant where she—you guessed it!—falls for its leading man, Hank. 

(I know, I know, these cable Christmas movies are all the same, but we love them anyway.)

As if that wasn’t enough ’90s nostalgia for you this holiday season, Lifetime will also feature Full House middle sister Jodie Sweetin in “Merry Swissmas” this winter. There’s also a film directed by Melissa Joan Hart and a scheduled appearance by  Mario Lopez on the docket. It looks like Lifetime has figured out the 1990s are still where it’s at . . . or maybe that its youth are now women in their 30s and 40s who wait all year for Christmas movies on cozy evenings at home that smell like pumpkin spice candles and taste like nostalgic joy. 

Now, who do we talk to about a full-on reboot of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman

Here’s To Us, Geriatric Millennials

In: Living
Friends on beach

I was born in 1982, which technically makes me a millennial—but just barely. My music growing up was more of the Spice Girls variety than Justin Bieber. I don’t ride an electric scooter to work, office out of a flex workspace, or purchase cars from Carvana. I also don’t snap pictures of my girlfriends and me holding hands with the caption “v, v ideal day tbh.” No, those are my kids’ babysitters, who are also millennials curiously. I am the variety of millennial who grew up playing Oregon Trail in a computer lab at school, eating Flintstone Push-Ups while watching...

Dinosaurs TV show

Is it just me or have ’90s kids had a TON of entertainment news to be happy about lately? First, we got The Baby-Sitters Club series on Netflix, then Supermarket Sweep, and now, our favorite zany ’90s sitcom, Jim Henson’s Dinosaurs, is coming to Disney+!! If there’s one thing I love more than reliving my childhood, it’s sharing the best of it with my kids, so I’m SUPER excited about this! For those of you who (inexplicably) don’t remember Dinosaurs, let me refresh ya! Dinosaurs was an early ’90s sitcom that ran for four years on ABC and was created...
