I'll Be Loving Them Forever!

I will be the first to admit that I'm a bit of a dork. I was/am a huge fan of The New Kids on the Block (Joey to be exact) and when I heard that they were doing a reunion tour, 15 years later...... I was all about it. The concert was last night in Atlanta. Yankee Belle, Kimtastic and I loaded up and headed on over, this was something I was not going to miss. Our seats were good, and the feelings of nostalgia were exactly what I expected. A couple of Jack and Cokes and we were dancing and singing our little hearts out.

They played all of the greatest hits, as well as some of their new stuff...... For the record, I am not delusional. I realize that their music is poppy (crap) and not something that I would typically like now, but let's remember the nostalgia, shall we?

About half way through the show, we got an extra special treat when a super, secret, magical stage appeared out of the floor, right at the end of our row. We of course crammed in to get as close as possible and close we were!! It dawned on me at that moment, that I am way out of practice when it comes to being a groupie..... I broke the number one rule. I had absolutely nothing with me to get their attention. No poster, no sign, flower, panties... Nothing. For a split second I thought about flashing my boobs, that's about all I had to offer, but after 3 kids, they probably wouldn't have gotten me the attention I was hoping for, plus they're married, I'm married, and they weren't handing out any beads.

In summation, a great time was had by all! It was great to be taken back to "the day." I will leave you now with a few of my favorite pictures. Rock on NKOTB.... Rock On... If you ever get down to the "dirty south" again, I will most likely buy another ticket, and next time, I might just crimp my hair.

I CAN NOT BELIEVE THEY ARE BACK ON TOUR!! I saw them on my 16th birthday many moons ago. It was a great night!

BTW, I've just got my 2nd book of the Twilight series. Here's to reading the weekend away!

I need vampire rehab. I've read the second book in less than 24 hours. I'm itching to start the third but know I won't be able to start the 4th until Friday b/c of a busy week. And I'm scared of the withdrawls! I NEED HELP!
