While I love the day and age I live in now.. I think that I would love to live in the 1950's! I think it would be fun to go back to simpler times.. Some of the reasons I think I would love the 50's are:
2. Simple, yet sophisticated fashion
“For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.” -Hepburn
3. The Mickey Mouse Club.
Oh, How I would have loved to be a member of the original Mickey Mouse Club. Even as an adult, I love all things Mickey. M-I-C-K-E-Y MOUSE! Sing it with me...
4. Drive In movies...
We had a drive in movie in our town for the longest time. I used to love to go to them.. I love the whole atmosphere.. But I love older movies that depict them. Even though it was fun in the 90's I think it would have been way more fun in the 50's
5. The Television shows..
I Love Lucy
Leave It To Beaver
The Adventures of Ozzy and Harriet
Father Knows Best
I love all of these fabulous television shows. I could watch them over and over again...
I love everything about Diners. I love the menu. Who don't love Burgers and Shakes. I love the Juke Boxes. The checkered floors. I love it all...
7. Stay At Home Housewife's..
Okay- Please do not judge. I am all for women's rights. I just love how the 50's housewife's were portrayed. I love how they tended to their little families and got all pretty before their men got home. I really think a good dose of this would actually do some good... but in order for me to be a proper stay at home housewife... I am going to have to get married first..and then probably get over my fear of the kitchen..lol.
8. The Music
I love the music of the 1950's.
Nat King Cole- Unforgettable
Dean Martin - That's Amore
Patti Page - The Doggy In The Window
Frank Sinatra - I've Got The World On A String
Bill Haley and The Comments - Shake Rattle and Roll
The Crew Cuts- Sh Boom
Elvis Presley - Love Me Tender
Everly Brothers - All I have to do is dream
I could go on and on...
9. Simpler Times..
I love me some Elvis. I think I would have been one of those screaming crying girls that crack me up every time I see movies about his life. As a kid I loved Elvis movies. I thought he was so cute.
Oh, what a fun era to be from.. These 10 things are just the beginning. I didn't even mention the baby boom, life in suburbia, white picket fences, the cool toys, safe neighborhoods, new inventions, and the pursuit of the American Dream..
