cause we're the girls of rock and roll...



i am so grateful for youtube.

while most young girls(and boys) were watching jem and my little pony...my heart belonged to the chipmunk's great adventure. obsessed. still to this day. my elementary school had a festival inside the little gym in the woods called "westafest"; westminster's carnival/talent show/ craft fair rolled into one.

this was the first song i ever performed. two other girls and i lip-synched and danced our hearts out to this song. and we wore poodle skirts and bobby socks for some reason. i wished we had done full 80s dance costumes. i secretly thought i was boy-crazy, super-cool brittany; wearing legwarmers and makeup. in reality, i was more like chubby eleanor; wearing pigtails and hugging penguins.

if you know this video, you know you love it.

My couscous!!

My sister and I found this in our local video rental store last summer and both squealed with delight! It was our favorite movie when we were kids. Still love it. Still can quote it and still sing all the songs.

Oh my gosh.....This was one of my favorite movies as a kid!!!! I loved the chipettes! my parents didn't always like me watching it though because I always put on an attitude afterwards. Same with the little mermaid. Anyways it's cool to find someone else who also loved that movie
