Jamie Loves.

When one of your favorite people in the world asks you to guest post because they are GETTING MARRIED, you say yes. So here I am! I'm Jamie and I'm you're lovely hostess for the day.

One of the things Katelin and I both super love are celebrities and Hollywood gossip so I figured I'd make my top five post about that today. And because I'm nothing if not thorough, I'm even tying in getting married into it too because KATELIN MARRIED NOW.

I know, I know, overachiever much?

If you were anything like me when you were young, you pestered your mom and dad to buy you Bop and Teen Beat magazines. Then you tore out the photos and pinned them all over your walls. Your room was a shrine and you were convinced you were going to grow up to marry them all. Can you guess where this is going?

Top Five Celebrities I Loved And Thought I Was Going To Grow Up To Marry

Jonathan Taylor Thomas. Okay, don't EVEN tell me you somehow managed to escape your preteen years without crushing on JTT. I will straight up refuse to believe it. Everyone loved JTT. Probably had something to do with the fact that we could call him JTT too. It was just so catchy. He starred in Home Improvement and Man of the House. Don't act like you don't know. Confess your JTT crushes right now.

Benny Rodriguez (from The Sandlot). I don't even know his real name but I was in love with him and going to marry him. I played softball. He played baseball. He appreciated a good pair of shoes. It was just meant to be! Plus, how super fast and brave was he when he was going up against The Beast.

Devon Sawa. There was a boy who lived down the street from me who had blonde hair and blue eyes. His name was Richard and he was my first "boyfriend". He kind of looked like Devon Sawa so that's probably why I liked him so much. Anyway, Casper and The Little Giants, remember those? I adored him!

Leonardo DiCaprio. Along with JTT, everyone loved Leo. He was in Growing Pains, Romeo + Juliet and Titanic. I think I watched Titanic like 375 times and probably even made myself cry because it was Titanic and everyone was supposed to cry. I was so ridiculous. Unlike most of these other dudes, he still has a pretty killer career. And unfortunately a thing for Israeli supermodels. Thanks Bar for RUINING MY DREAMS.

Joshua Jackson. I know Katelin will love this one because she shares my love for Josh here. Pacey cemented my love for him, but I initially fell for Charlie Conway. Might Ducks! The Flying V! Quack! Quack! Quack! Josh is still looking good today and all I need to do is get rid of this Diane broad and then I can finally fulfill one of my childhood dreams. Call me, Josh!

So there you have it. Even as an annoying preteen, I still had fabulous taste in boys. It also seems I was really big on sports themed movies (not mentioned but just as loved: Angels in the Outfield with Joseph Gordon-Levitt).

While I might not be marrying any one of these dudes, I have a friend who MARRIED her best friend and I couldn't be happier for them both.

Congratulations Katelin and Matt! I love you both and wish you the best in the world. I hope you're having the absolute best time in Italy. xoxo

As for Katelin's readers? Share your crushes from back in the day!

Omgosh, Jamie, I was in LOVE with Devon Sawa when I was younger. (I was always so annoyed with Christina Ricci when she got to kiss him in Casper. My twelve year old self was MAJOR JEALOUS.)

Also adore Titanic-era Leo & JTT, too cute. Good choices!! :)

I completely agree with all of your picks, but I have two of my own to add:

1. Rider Strong, a.k.a. Shawn from Boy Meets World. Oh my, did I think that boy was beautiful when I was, oh, 13!

2. Little Pete from Pete & Pete. I have a weird love of redheads, which stemmed back til my preteen years, apparently!

Mrs Soup said...

Oh yes, JTT and HEART THROBS! <3 Now, excuse me whilst I go dream of days gone by.

Oh wait, I still love Leo! More than for just his beautiful face. He is *SUCH* an amazing actor...

This is a GREAT post! Katelin and I had thee biggest crushes on JTT! ( Yes, I totally had an autographed picture of him on my wall.. No, I didn't meet him but I joined a fan club & it was sent to me in the mail! How stalkerish haha)
Loooved Benny Rodriguez!! {girlie screams!!}

I crushed *hard* on Jonathan Brandis and those gorgeous blue eyes, back in the day too.. lol

I am so with you:
JTT was my all time favorite. I saw him in Wild America and saw Devon Sawa. Man those two were amazing.
Mike Vitar(Benny Rodriguez)was cute in that movie.
Don't want to burst any bubble here, but my cousin actually got JTT to sign a postcard for her and she gave it to me for a christmas present! Love that cousin.

We must be the EXACT SAME AGE (or very close to it? I'm 25.). This is so the story of growing up in the 90s.

Vanessa said...

OMG to all of the above. I totally had a crush on JTT and Benny Rodriguez and Casper (b/c I didn't know his real name!. The Mighty Ducks was also one of my favorite movies!

JTT - Guilty! I won't even try to hide it because he's still hot.

Also yes, Devon Sawa. And while I didn't crush on Leo back in the day, I do now. He's dreamy!

Rhia said...

you are such a sweet friend for blog guesting. Yay! btw, I ♥ Devon Sawa too! ain't he a cutie in Casper?! :D

Jamie said...

Holy crap. Your list is my list!! I bought an incredible amount of teen mags with JTT on the cover.

Devon Sawa was my absolute favorite! I hear he has not aged well.

Benny from the Sandlot... so smokin' hot! I don't know his real name either but my sister and I were in love!!!

Joshua Jackson has thankfully grown up to be even hotter. Same as Leo. That should actually be a crime.
