A Little Confession...

When I was a little girl, a new "band" came out and I fell in love!  I had a bedspread, pillowcases, and curtains with their faces on it.  It was Bieber fever of the late 80's.  Yes...I had a small obsession with the New Kids on the Block.  I have a vivid memory of my dad taking me to the mall to find NKOTB buttons...you know the HUGE buttons with their faces.  If I remember correctly, I had a Jordan button, Jon button, and Joey button.  Sorry Danny and Donnie.  I was a bit discriminatory at that stage.  I used to walk around listening to my headphones (ie. cassette player).  My dream was to see them in concert but unfortunately that never happened.  I was extremely sad devastated when they disappeared


 But fast forward 7-10 years...

I can remember my friend, G, bringing over a cd (GASP!) of some group from Florida.  This group would fill the void that NKOTB left.  The Backstreet Boys would be my favorite group thereafter but especially in my high school years.  I didn't go as wild with the bedspread and such but that is when I discovered BOP, Teen Beat, etc.  Nick Carter was my favorite.  Hands down.  At the beginning of my senior year of high school (which happened to be my birthday weekend), my friends, including G and another best named N, and I went to Atlanta to see 'NSync (yeah...the one with Justin Timberlake) and after the concert my sweet friends surprised me with a little birthday party and my present was a ticket to the upcoming BSB concert.  I was ecstatic!!  I saw them in November from the upper section of the civic center and I loved every minute of it.


So considering my childhood and teen years was filled with these two groups, you can imagine my sheer excitement for the possibilty of the two groups touring together.  In December 2010, I purchased 5 tickets to the NKOTBSB concert in Nashville in June 2011. So peeps, I will spend next Tuesday evening with 4 awesome ladies (G, N, K, and C) and experience a show like no other.  I literally can't contain my excitement.  I know that as soon as I hear the music to Hangin' Tough or Step by Step that my 28 year old brain is going to revert back to my shy, nine year old memories. 

I am not ashamed.

Well, maybe a litte. 

No.  Wait.  I'm not. 

Full details, pictures, and more next week!  T minus 5 days!
