New Kids...

I have to share my excitement. If you’re my husband your about to roll your eyes, if your one of my close friends you’re going to start laughing and if your anyone else you’re probably going to think I’m a little weird but...the New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) are going to be on the Today show tomorrow morning and they are coming out with a new CD!

Yes, I am one of “those people” who watch E, and Entertainment Tonight. I like to know what’s going on with my favorite celebrities. And although Brian hates this, it’s also one of the reasons he loves me so much…right honey? So maybe that’s why I’m so excited about this. I’m excited to find out what they’ve been up to over the past 15 or so years. Or maybe it’s because this group brings back so many memories of my childhood. I remember spending countless hours decorating my room with posters of them. I had the sheets, the comforter, and the Joe McIntyre pillowcase. I remember the fun times I had with my Aunt Debbie and mom at concerts and how they would buy me everything with Joe McIntyre on it. I had a ton of those huge pins and wore about 10-15 (big and small) to each concert I went to. One night, I think I was in 6th grade, about 5 of my friends and a parent slept in a minivan at the mall so we could be one of the first people in line to buy tickets to a concert. I remember sitting on my grandma’s porch with the radio listening to their tape (yes, tape) and dancing around. I knew every word to every song and still get excited whenever I hear one of them on the radio. Or maybe I'm so excited because I love pop music and I’m excited to see if their new CD is any good. All I know, is I am looking forward to watching the Today show after work tomorrow. I'm glad we got DVR ; )

I have been sooooo excited since I heard the big news. Tracey and I discussed going to one of their concerts so let me know if you want to go together. Don't worry my husband rolls his eyes too but he just doesn't appreciate how awesome the NKOTB are!
