NKOTB Concert

Saturday November 15, 2008...was the coolest and/or the lamest thing I've ever done. Take it for what it is. Yes, I went to the New Kids on the Block reunion tour. Yes. I paid money to see the old men sing and dance.

I was at the Marriot Center in Provo in 1990, and I swore if they ever did a reunion tour, I would be there, so, I made it to the E-Center in West Valley in 2008.

Despite the notable bad hair dye jobs, lame dance moves, and wrinkles on their faces that DEFINITELY were not there 20 years ago, the boys still put on a good show. Kapeka said it best, "I can listen, but I can't watch." They sounded great. Maybe they should invest in dance doubles to make the visual part of the show more appeasing.

Jon, Joey, Donnie, Danny, Jordan
Yes. I still know all their names. True fans do.
We had awesome seats. I hardly had to zoom to get this pic.
See #43? That's Jon. I was pretty sure I was going to marry him when I was younger.
Now, he is old with a bad dye job.
My brother said he hated me a little bit for going to the concert.
Hate me if you will, but hate is also a form of ENVY!!!???!!!

Halloween Weekend

This weekend, my brother Shawn, his wife Michelle, their daughter Kiley and my other brother Troy came in to visit from California. They all came in Thursday night, but Michelle came in Friday. Kiley and my parents came to my work party which was Kiley's costume debut. She was not very happy and the costume lasted about 3 minutes. After taking a nap, Kiley was in a better mood and was such a good cooperative girl for Trunk or Treat with my parents ward. She left the costume on all night and didn't even try to take it off! My mom made the costume all by herself! Adorable huh? That's my mom and Kiley going trick-or-treating above.
Saturday night we went out to dinner to celebrate Shawn's birthday that was on the 30th. We spent the night laughing our guts out over the STUPIDEST stuff, but it was fun. Sunday, my mom made turkey dinner before everyone had to go home.
It was so fun to have all of our family together for the weekend. I miss having my brothers here. Come back and visit soon!

The neighbor kids.
Bella and her doll were witches and little Max was a turtle.

A pirate obviously...with peg leg, hook, and eyepatch included.
This is my mom's favorite pose that Kiley does.
She calls it her "supermodel pose."
