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.
Two Words: Poofy Sleeves.
Should I know who this dude is?
I loved these guys! (Side note – I had about 8 of these in the box)
I heart Alf.
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?
