Joanna Gaines Shares Late-Night Stickers-Trading Session with Her Daughters and We're So Nostalgic
If you're anything like us, these long weeks spent sheltering in place have reinvigorated our interest for our hobbies of yesteryear. For some, that's meant brushing up on playing a musical instrument, or maybe in relearning a language in which we were formerly fluent. For others, its ushered a resurgence in a childhood love of baking, or hula-hooping, or endless rounds of Scrabble or gin rummy.
And how about buffing up our stickers collection? For those of us who have second grade memories of perusing binders of stickers with friends and family, it's no surprise that coronavirus quarantine has brought about a renewed interest in the popular childhood pastime, for kids and kids at heart alike.
Least of all for Waco Wonderwoman, Joanna Gaines, who shared some snapshots of her family's stickers trading session, giving us a major wave of nostalgia for the hobby.
"Late night sticker trading with the girls," Gaines wrote alongside several photos on Instagram, the first of which shows a seriously impressive spread of stickers binders on the table, complete with a pile of freestanding stickers in the middle, presumably up for trade between her and her daughters Ella Rose and Emmie Kay. "I'll admit I'm a bit ruthless when it comes to the vintage scratch n sniff and cabbage patch puffy stickers—they don't understand why I won't put them up for trade. Ever."
Personally, we've got our eyes on the adorable turtle peeking out above the binder at the bottom of the first picture and the pair of roller skates with the "Keep Rolling!" heading in the second picture, which we're guessing hails from mama Gaines' collection.
Considering the post has 709,466 likes and counting, along with many comments pining for days past ("I miss those days and my Swatch watch that smelled like bananas" and "Is Lisa Frank represented?" to single out two), it clearly struck a chord with Gaines' audience.
