When I was about, oh, 9 or 10 years old, I had the biggest crush on Shawn Cassidy. Do you remember him? If you are in your early 40's, I know he's someone you might have on your radio. He was a singer, and he also starred in The Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew. I had a poster of him in my room, and every single night, I coated my lips in Maybelline's Kissing Potion. Then I practiced my kissing. My sister shared my love for the shaggy headed actor, and my mom still has pictures of us kissing our posters. I was convinced we'd be married one day. Mrs. Shawn Cassidy was lovingly written in my best penmanship all over the covers of my Trapper Keeper.

I know that if I'd ever had the opportunity to meet Shawn - because that's how I thought of him, first name only - I'd probably have been too flustered to move.

I'm kind of embarrassed to think about it now, but I'm comforted to know that all of us have a celebrity crush of some type in our background. My husband is a bit older than I, but he still remembers fondly his crush on Raquel Welch. It makes me wonder if my children will remember the crushes that they've had on celebrities - none of my mine have ever been what I would call a celebrity stalker, but I know that there's been some Robert Pattinson love with at least a couple of my girls.

Who was your biggest celebrity crush growing up? Did your room or personal gear demonstrate your love, or did you express your affection and feelings in other ways?

Growing up my biggest crush was Tom Hanks and Jose Canseco (baseball player) and I did have their pictures hanging everywhere in my room.

I really never understood the celebrity crush thing- seems like a waste of my time and affections to devote them to someone who it won't make any impact on what so ever.  I'm kinda a downer when it comes to entertainment though, lol!
