Happy Friday! 

I hope you’re all having a great day and are as excited for the weekend as I am!

Tomorrow is my little sister’s baby shower { It’s a girl! } and I’m super excited to go to the party and see everyone. I don’t get to see my family that often so I’m excited, especially with how far along my sister is! So cute!

On another note, this weekend is Chinese New Year & it’s Year of the Snake! I’m super excited to stay home and try to make dumplings for the first time! Anyone who has any advice on what to cook and how to do it, please leave it in the comments because I’m going to need it!

Anyway, today’s post focuses on things in the past. My past, that is. I recently saw a bunch of YouTube videos { I seem to be on there a lot lately! } where the tag was ” I remember when…” and discussed what we remember from our past or childhood or whichever and I thought it would be tons of fun to do a post on it myself!

    I remember videos and having to rewind them after you’ve watched something. I also remember tape coming out of cassettes and having to wind it back in, I think those are my childhood memories, haha. I loved the pokemon show. Have a nice time at the baby shower and all the best to your sister. xx
