Do you remember?

Last weekend, on our way down to the "Big City", we stopped in a burgeoning suburb.

A burgeoning suburb that, once upon a time, was just another dot on the map..."Maple Grove".

Now filled with cobblestone streets, a "shop walk" to drool over, some fabulous restuarants, and even a hospital, Maple Grove has become more than just a dot on the map.

Way back when, when they were just any other small 'burb, they boasted something as their "claim to fame".

The Jets.

Do YOU remember The Jets? I was reminding Mr. W of them while we were passing through MG, and he had no idea what I was talking about, "Oh, that cartoon show?"

"Um, no, hon. That's the JetSON's...and they're from outer space, not Maple Grove." And then I took out my crappy handy iPhone, pulled up iTunes and typed in "The Jets". (I was sort of half expecting there NOT to be any results from my search...)

And low and behold...THERE THEY WERE!! So, I played him the preview (and sang along, if you must know...I even still know most of the words!!)...and his eyes lit up and he said, "OH! THEM!!"

Yes...them. YOU remember The Jets? To refresh your memory... 'bout this one? Takes me right back to junior high dances...slow dancing with sweaty boys...

So, how's THAT for a blast from the past!!


  1. I remember "Crush on You" but forgot about "You Got it All" until I played it. Thanks for the walk down memory lane!

  2. Er, I thought that was the name of some sports team. P.S. Im so glad your girl is doing so much better!

  3. Oh, I loved them! My hubby is from Plymouth, MN and never even told me this fascinating tidbit. He just got a little bit cooler.

  4. Oh my, my girlfriends and I memorized that dance and did it all the time!! I had my hair exactly like the singers.
    Oh gosh, I think I still do some of those moves....LOL

  5. Oh my goodness you brought back the memories, only I just recognized the songs, didn't remember the band name. Nor did I realize they were from Maple Grove.

  6. I live about 5-10 minutes from Maple Grove.. if I ever see you in public, am I allowed to scream MAMA M at the top of my lungs??? Haha! ;)

Come here looking for the tutorial? It can be found here:  Halo Braid Tutorial!  Let me know how it goes! I had something in mind to try on Baby Girl's hair the other best bud, Dr. J, did something similar to it on Belle once, and I was trying to replicate it. Instead, I got this: Isn't it pretty?!
