Pageants, Potter, and a Creek | Capeside Revisited

There’s this scene in the first season of Dawson’s Creek. Joey Potter, “the too-tall girl from the wrong side of the creek”, enters a stage behind a line of girls who are smiling with their teeth and wearing sequin-y dresses. Joey’s dress is sleek and simple. Her hair, which normally sits on her shoulders and […]

Jessica @ Strung out on Books - Omg this post gave me so many feelings! I’ve only seen about half of the first season, even though I’ve tried time and again to watch this show. Some other new show or book would end up distracting me and I’d forget for a while and have to restart season one. But after reading this I’m convinced that I need to continue watching. This was such a touching post! 🙂

Alexa S. - I love this post, E! It’s so lovely, the way you’ve framed your look back at the show. Even though I didn’t experience Dawson’s Creek exactly the same way, I still think about the show with the same sort of nostalgia. <3

Sarah - Oh, Jesse. He’s on Army Wives now, too. I’ve always loved him so much, and since he’s only two years older than me, I think I can make it happen. Haha

Maggie @ Young Adult Anonymous - This post cracked my shit up, Estelle. My heart always Teen Beated for Jon from NKOTB. Devon Sawa! The Annexation of Puerto Rico!! Did you ever watch The Sandlot or Mighty Ducks? Mike Vitar and Vincent A. LaRusso… mmm.

Sharon @ The Book Barbies - Oh, Joshua Jackson. ♥ He was my dream boyfriend for the longest time. (Oh, who am I kidding? He is still crazy high on the list! LOL.)

Sara (of the Page Sage) - Jesse McCartney and Zac Efron were my first celebrity crushes! (Followed soon after by Nick Jonas and then Orlando Bloom.) I love Jeremy Jordan. His voice is INCREDIBLE.

Asheley Tart (@BookwormAsheley) - This is the best blog post ever. EVERRR.

I just love the New Kids and I’m not ashamed that I NEVER stopped listening to them, although I did not bring my posters and magazine clippings to my house after I got married.

Oh goodness, despite my age and (supposed) maturity level, I spend so much time fangirling/swooning over handsome heartthrobs for different reasons. My #1 is James Franco BECAUSE goodness gracious have you LOOKED AT HIM? I also really love Lee Pace because of course. Justin Timberlake because has moves. MOVES, I tell you. Gerard Butler because when he opens his mouth, that perfect accent just OOPS! falls right out. *swoons* Also I’m very extremely fond of Simon Neil from the band Biffy Clyro because that voice, that voice, that voice. You can even hear his accent when he sings, have mercy.

James Franco. Jamessss Francoooo. <3

I do not have any posters on my walls anymore but I do have some musicians on my phone wallpaper and lock screen. 🙂

Nikki @ Foil the Plot - Really excited about Jennifer’s new book, especially after reading your awesomesauce review. Totally digging the concept!

My first ever childhood crush was JTT (still am kinda crushing on him, actually) followed by Andrew Keegan and River Phoenix. Unfortunately, one of them is no longer with us (thanks, bad choices!) but I’m not ashamed at all to admit that I was hard-core crushing. Oh yeah, and there was also Drew Lachey from 98 Degrees. I watched Dancing With The Stars just to commemorate my former love for the man (and I do hate that show)! Woot!

Alexa Y. - I may or may not be obsessing over this post a little right now. Okay, maybe a LOT. But seriously, you’ve named some of my favorite hotties – Joshua Jackson, Jesse McCartney and Zac Efron (especially Zac!). I love it. I love this post. It seriously made my day.

When I was in elementary/high school, I was obsessed first with Brian (in BSB) and then with Justin (in NSYNC). I also went through a phase where I loved Duncan (from British boyband Blue) and Ben (from British boyband a1) and Shane (from Irish boyband Westlife). Is it obvious I had a thing for boy bands?

ANYWAY. Currently, I swoon over Zac Efron at any moment. And Ian Somerhalder and his awesome eyes. GAH.

Also, I am SUPER excited to read Jen’s book!

Asti (A Bookish Heart) - Love this post! Cute was to tie the book to your real life 🙂
When I was a teen it was all about Christopher Kirkpatrick from NSYNC. I’m not sure why… I can’t imagine it was the dreadlocks that won me over. I’m pretty sure it was just because I wanted to like one that no one else seemed to like. Huh.
The one that took over when I was older, and has stuck with me ever since, is Johnny Depp. I’m assuming it’s his dark and dirty vibe that wins me over, but I would do anything to just see him in person. Plus he plays guitar, and that’s hot.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Hahaha what a fun post!!! 🙂
I was all about Devon Sawa too (I fell in love with him in Casper!) and that’s why I loved William from Downton Abbey so much. He totally reminded me of Devon Sawa!

Ginger @ GReads! - Oh yes, I was a Pacey fan too. It was Joey from the New Kids that littered my walls, though. Notice I said “New Kids” and not NKOTB? haha I think the acronym started after my fandom died out. I was also a fan of Jordan Catalono (Jared Leto) during the My So-Called Life days. Oh that boy!! And if we’re going way back… Brandon and Dylan from 90201 (the original!!) haha.

Hemborgwife - I used to have posters up of the guys they would put in Teen Vogue and my dad was always so embarrassed by it!
I was kinda weird though and was really into Benicio del Toro for some reason!

Rachel @ hello, chelly. - Joshua Jackson! You know he’s on my list (growing up and still to this day). Then I remember also loving David Boreanaz, Justin Timberlake & JC from ‘NSync and AJ from Backstreet Boys back in high school. But currently, I’d say Ian Somerhalder and Joseph Gordon-Levitt 🙂 Such a fun post! And even though I didn’t mention Zac Efron.. I do agree that he’s pretty hot.
