80's crush


Thanks Nicki, Suze, M Pax for the fun blogfest!

Oh, there are so many choices...the 80's were the start of my boy crazy days :)  My room was covered in magazine posters of Corey Haim, Kirk Cameron, Ralph Macchio, and Scott Baio.  But these are the real hunks of the 80's that still stand out in my head:


Emilio was probably my first crush


Then I realized I wanted the guy with the car (and the hair and the money...)

Chances Are

But Robert Downey Jr. closed out the 80's as a big time hunk that is even more of a hunk today :)

I can't wait to hop around and have some seriously hunky 80's flashbacks!

    1. I've heard that before! :) Crazy that she's married to Kevin Kline (one of my favorites).

  2. This looks so fun! I'll have to go over and join up - for no other reason than I want to have a trip down memory lane. :) There are so many... Biggest, I think was any member of Duran Duran - except Andy Taylor. Poor Andy... Been having trouble with leaving comments, so I'm going to try anonymous - I'm Lara Schiffbauer, though.

    1. I had to look him up, I wasn't that in to music yet in the 80's. He looks like he's lived a hard life :)
      I've been having a ton of trouble leaving comments lately, blogs stop working when I hit the button, hmmm...

    2. Thank you ! I thought it was just me, and I've been messing with my internet security settings. Nothing seems to help. I have the problem with the blogs whiting out when I hit the button on the dashboard, too. Super frustrating.

  3. So fun. My sister who is 10 years younger had NO clue who Scot Baio was. Felt so old. Great choices.

    Oh mine were Joey McIntyre and Donnie from New Kids on the Block. My first concert. LOL. I had a ton more but these were some of my first.

    1. Joey's blue eyes and high voice lured in a lot of girls!

  8. So I thought I scheduled this for February 10th, like I'm supposed to, but I messed up :) Ooops! I will post it again on the 10th, oooh, maybe I'll just pick some new (old) 80's hotties!

  11. Oh man, I am totally swooning over your choices! *sigh* The memories. I loved them ALL too. You seriously picked my faves! Which means we think alike and I find that awesome! Great choices and fun blogfest! I love the 80's!

  12. Yay! You are so cool to not only join the blogfest but pimp it for us too. Thanks for these lovely pics...how am I ever going to pick just one for the fest. ;)

  13. Hey Hope! Guess what - I suddenly had (what I think was a brilliant) idea and edited your link on the fest to go directly to this post -- is that okay? I just had to make sure these beautiful boys got properly oggled by 80s enthusiasts. ;) I'm 100% agreement on Robert Downey being even better today.

  15. Oh, I forgot about the guy from Sixteen Candles! He was definitely swoon-worthy!

  16. Michael Shoeffling! He MADE Sixteen Candles and was so massively swoon worthy!

    1. I think every girl dreamed some hot guy would show up with a Porsche and a birthday cake after that movie!

  17. RDJ also turned out to be one hell of a good actor.
    Glad to see he is so popular today.

    1. Oh the posters, Teen Bop was my favorite mag just to take out the PG centerfolds ;)

  23. Sigh. Jake Ryan. Wish the actor who played him acted in more movies!

  24. I'm with Patty--Michael Shoeffling is the cat's meow. Loved the relationship evolution between Jake Ryan and his blond bimbo girlfriend.

    1. Yeah, that was fantastic! The cutting of her hair, too funny! Great movie :)

  25. Oh yeah, Robert Downey Jr's much hotter now that he's grown up and sober. He's a really good actor and I love the Sherlock Holmes flicks. I'm #57 in the blogfest, hopping over to say hi.
