My Ella had her Pre-Valentine’s Day party today. I volunteered because I like to spend time with my girl – and yes because I really like heart day.  It was one of my favorites as a kid.  The day full of sugar and pink made me think back to the valentines I received and how much it has all changed. You know, since 1989-ish.

Need a flashback?  Me too.  Here’s just a few from my stash.  Looking for a Valentine  from 1987-1993?  I bet I could search and find one for you in my JCPenney shoe box.

I loved these guys!  (Side note – I had about 8 of these in the box)

I heart Popples, too!  Do they still make these?  No, really.  They should.

How many of these guys did you have?  On a side note, do you remember the garbage pail kids?  The ones that puked?  Gross!  I bet I have a Valentine with one of those things on it.  Ooh..now I have to look!

I just had to show you how many Michael Jordan Valentines I received.  Guys – I only had 32 kids in my class.  Less than half of those were boys.  By one get 7 free?  Something was happening.  Did we really only talk about that dude?
