NKOTB Concert Again!

Yes, this is a great shot of Joey's behind ;) hehe. I am obviously a Joey fan. Olivia is a Danny fan, which I honestly don't get. Though Danny has some great dance skills.

The wait was driving us crazy I guess!

NKOTB Concert

OMG! I don't think words can give that experience justice. All I can say is that I loved every minute and wished it never ended! The whole day was pretty good, and ended great. So great, in fact, that the parking ticket did not put a damper on anything. I was so happy I got to see my good friend Heather and we ate some great food at the Mayan. Thanks, Heather!

Olivia and I started to make our way to the concert at 6:30 so we could be there at 7 when the doors opened. Well that was an adventure in itself. I ended up getting on the freeway on the carpool lane and our exit happened to be immediate once we got on the freeway. Well needless to say there was not way I could get across all five lanes of traffic that quickly, so we missed the exit. I ended up taking the next exit hoping that eventually we would get to Redwood Rd, and sure enough we did! There was even a sign that said E-center this way, so we knew we were going the right way! Well we made it, parked, got our signs ready and made our way to the entrance. Once we got there they took our signs away. How rude... I kinda figured they would but I was secretly hoping they wouldn't because we had so much fun making them! At least we were able to wear the shirts we made!

Anyways, once inside, Olivia and I fought the crowds of women to buy t-shirts! We each bought a t-shirt and I bought a key chain as well. Now all that was left was waiting for the show to begin. There were two opening acts. First was Lady Gaga. There really are no words for what we saw with her. It was definitely not appealing to a female audience. That is all... Natasha Beddingfield followed and she was quite amazing actually.

Finally, the men of the evening took the stage! After months of waiting for this day, they were finally there. Let me just say that the wait was more than worth it! Joey McIntyre is gorgeous! They sang every song we wanted them to so what more could we ask for? I have honestly never screamed so much in my life! My throat still hurts, two days later. Also I made sure I sang every word to every song (with the exception of two songs I didn't know). Olivia and I never sat down once NKOTB took the stage.

Some of the highlights were: Danny Wood break-dancing, some woman throwing a "I 'heart' Mormon Girls" t-shirt to Donny Wahlberg (which helped him introduce singing "Cover Girl"), being able to see their beautiful faces up close, Olivia and I being the only two in our entire section who knew every word to all of the new songs, Joey McIntyre wearing the same jacket he wore in the 90's, Olivia and I reacting the exact same way when they performed "Twisted" (our favorite song and again the only two dancing and singing along in the entire section cause everyone else sat down), and pretty much just Joey all around!

NKOTB, Here I Come!

If there were words to describe how excited I am for my New Kids on the Block concert, I don't think it would do it justice! I bought the tickets in July for my friend's birthday in August. So I had to keep it a secret that I bought the tickets for over a month and needless to say I wasn't very good at that. Well when her birthday finally got here, we started getting so so excited. NKOTB came out with a new album and we were one of the first ones to buy it September 2nd. Not only do I love the old NKOTB, but the new NKOTB is amazing as well! There's nothing better than New Kids' "Twisted"! Except maybe "Step by Step" or "Cover Girl".... Oh what am I saying, there are way too many good ones. The wait is finally coming to a close. The concert is Saturday Nov 15th, only four days away!

Side note: One of my biggest pet peeves lately is when people hear me listening to NKOTB and ask why I'm listening to Backstreet Boys or NSYNC..... How rude. They don't even sound the same at all, and "The Block" is officially the coolest boy band ever. Joey McIntyre is definitely so much cuter than Lance Bass or Justin Timberlake.

My mom asked me who all the famous people were I put in my lucky 7 tag. Well surely everyone knows who Garth Brooks and Ellen Degeneres are. The other five (Jonathan Knight, Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Danny Wood, and Donny Wahlberg [brother to actor Mark Wahlberg]), however, most people would know by The New Kids On The Block. I am one of the biggest NKOTB fans and am super super excited to be able to go see them in concert on November 15th. YAY

I guess this is our idea of fun... Just sitting around talking posing for pictures here and there!
My hand is the claw, and the finger belongs to Shalie!
The best part is we never told each other what we were going to do in these pictures, they just kinda happened.
Oh dear. That is all.

Halloween Gingerbread house?

My mom stopped by the day before Aly's birthday and dropped off this kit to put together some gingerbread and icing. It included all the candy we used. Aly and I had quite a bit of fun putting this thing together! The best part was the weird ideas we came up with to use all of the candy and most of the icing!
We ended up putting a whole bunch of icing in the center of the house, covering the whole base! Then we put all the candy on there anywhere we could, including bats and skulls on the inside of the walls!
So the icing was ridiculously messy. We tried at first to not make a mess, but that ended pretty quickly! Also the black icing stained our hands for a few hours. It was so great. Eventually we had black icing coming out of both ends of the plastic bag it was in.
