Ah, to be young again!

Looking back on my 30 years of life, I've had a lot of celebrity crushes. Like, a LOT. When I was a preteen, I used to take my allowance up to the store and buy J-14 magazine, not for the articles, but for the posters. The walls of my bedroom were completely covered in posters of actors and singers, and most of them were cute boys. Did I kiss some of them before I went to bed at night? We may never know...

As an adult, I'd say that my biggest celebrity crushes are probably Jason Momoa and country singer Brett Eldredge, but my taste was much different as a child. I was a big fan of Nick Carter and the rest of the Backstreet Boys when they first came on the scene, but I didn't fall head-over-heels until Nick's little brother Aaron Carter stepped into the spotlight. He had bleach blonde hair, big brown eyes, a baby face, and he was only three years older than me! It was meant to be! You can imagine my disappointment when a good friend of mine got tickets to his concert in 4th grade, and I did NOT. Don't worry, I did get to meet him later on in life. He played a show a few years ago in Iowa City, and it was a fun, full-circle moment. 9-year-old Courtlin would've been proud!
