The blog post you didn't ask for and the blog post you didn't think you needed. This is not a joke. Your girl, 20 years old, twenty years old, just bought a pair of Heelys. HEELYS. I kid you not, I bought a pair of adult Heelys. So on a scale to 1-Dunkaroos, how nostalgic are you ready to get?
Here they are. The package I waited over a week for.
Let me preface:
A few weeks ago, I was discussing nostalgia with some friends. We talked about our favorite Disney, Nick and Cartoon Network shows, lunch time at school and what was good to get, and favorite stores and trends. And, of course, Heelys popped up in our conversation.
Who could forget Heelys? They were in the family tree of roller skates and roller blades. All the coolest kids had them, and wore them out. Grocery stores and schools banned them
But what happens in 2017? It's been a long time since Heelys were on anyone's mind. Are they still banned? That's for me to find out!
"I'm a kid again!"
Whoomp, There It Is
Just as beautiful as I could ever imagine. My 2017 Heelys. Growing up, I had the black pair with pink accents. They fit my wannabe Avril Lavigne attitude and style. Nearly a decade (or more) later, I tracked down these princess worthy Heelys complete with a cotton candy/lollipop design. I was shocked, in disbelief, amazed, that I actually purchased Heelys for myself.
Of course I had to go out in style during my first day of revealing my Heelys! While passing others in the hallways of my university, I wanted to look and seem like a time traveler from the early 2000s.
I grabbed my Heelys and brought my inner DJ Tanner look to life!

Away for the Day
After a day of skating around, shocking others, and bringing joy and an upbeat feeling to my day; I took my wheels out and headed back home.
You might think I'm frivolous with money for buying Heelys. You might think I'm plain stupid. Or you might think I'm an absolute legendary genius. Whatever you think, that's okay. Because buying Heelys made me feel that childhood joy I had on Christmas Eve so long ago.
It's the little things in life that make you happy, and trust me, these made my day.
**also if you think I'm stupid for buying Heelys, I think you're just jealous of my sick kicks!
