She's still 4

Yes, she turned 4 in November. Last weekend we FINALLY got Eliza's 4 year old pictures taken. But it worked out okay because I wanted her picture taken in the Easter dress I made for her anyway. So here are her 4 year old/Easter portraits.

How sweet is this girl? She is getting too big! Love her so much.

Who was yours?

I saw a post like this on another blog and I thought it was so funny because I had just been thinking about this exact same thing!

Is it just me or is Justin Bieber everywhere? Really, I can do a 360 degree turn in a store and see something with his face on it in every direction. Girls love him. I couldn't even tell you the name of one of his songs....BUT, that being said, I can COMPLETELY understand and relate to the girls who love him. What young girl didn't love and obsess over a celebrity when they were young?

Mine was Jordan Knight. I loved all five New Kids on the Block but I was always a Jordan girl. I was in 5th and 6th grade when they were at the height of their popularity. I remember my New Kids backpack that I got made fun of for wearing. Boys were so jealous of them... I had posters and t-shirts and puzzles and magazines and trading cards. I had the cassettes and tried to learn the dance moves. I was in the fan club but never got a letter back. But, still I loved them. I used to pretend that Jordan was singing "I'll be Loving You Forever" to me. I can't believe I just admitted that. Good times and very good memories.

Pretty sure I had this poster

You cannot look at these pictures and tell me that fashion and hair in the 80s and 90s were NOT awesome.

And do you know what the best part of my childhood obsession is? THEY'RE BACK!

Okay, that's not new news. They reunited three years ago but still... Can I tell you how fun reliving my childhood memories have been? They have new music and new moves but they are still the same and hearing the classics bring back the exact feelings I had in 1989. Jordan was the first boy I ever had a crush on. I remember I had a friend who loved Jon and we used to play and pretend that they were our boyfriends. Haha! And honestly, they all look better NOW than they did 20 years ago! Don't worry, Matt is well aware of all this...

One of my biggest regrets is not seeing them in concert when they came to SLC during their reunion tour. I can't believe I didn't go. I have no idea why I didn't!

Okay, that's the end of my fangirl moment. So, who was yours?
