On Saturday night I felt like my life had come full circle. When I was a little girl Mom and I would ride around in the car and sing New Kids on the Block together. Then in 1991, when I was 4 years old, we went to a New Kids on the Block concert in Jackson, Mississippi. It was my very first concert! I remember singing all the songs, and sitting on top of my Dad's shoulders yelling at Jordan Knight. He was my favorite New Kid on the Block! I used to think he was soooo cute ;) I mean look at that hair! HA!
Well ever since that first concert in 1991, I have been a HUGE fan of New Kids on the Block. So when I saw that the New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys were going on tour...I told Mom we HAD TO GO! I have been dying to see the New Kids on the Block again...I still play their Greatest Hits album on my Ipod every once in awhile ;) I'm not ashamed. So for my birthday Mom bought us 2 tickets to go see them in concert in Kansas City!
As Mom and I are walking into the arena, I start getting nervous. Everywhere I looked I saw New Kids on the Block fans. They wore old neon pink and green concert t-shirts, buttons, pins, etc. it was like the late 80's and early 90's was back and better than ever! I had butterflies in my stomach, I was absolutely giddy about the concert! After Mom and I bought t-shirts and buttons, we found our seats! They were incredible! We were right behind the floor seats in the 2nd row!
We were so close! EEEK!!! I got so excited I couldn't sit still, and when I stood up for Mom to take a picture I hear a CRASH! My camera was sitting on my lap and FELL DOWN UNDER THE BLEACHERS....UGHHHH Of course! Right before the opening act (which was Matthew Morrison from GLEE!). Before I burst out into tears and crawled into the fetal position my sweet momma reminded me that I could take pictures/video with my iPhone :) YES! So here you go friends :) Enjoy!
P.S. Everytime I re-watch these videos I shriek like a 13 year old girl does when she hears Justin Bieber. Well girls the New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys were my Justin Bieber's of their day :)
Please Don't Go Girl

|Danny from NKOTB came right by us! Thank goodness it wasn't Jordan, because I would have had a heart attack and died right there!|
All the tour buses! I thought about sneaking into one! HA!
My boy Jordan Knight!!!!!
One of the security guards dropped the set list and Mom picked it up! Great FREE keepsake!
Overall Mom and I had a great time at the concert! It was awesome! I have been looking at their tour schedule to see if they are coming anywhere close to us so we can go again! HA! So if you get a chance to see NKOTBSB I would DEFINITELY recommend it! They did not disappoint! Even my momma got down with her bad self and danced ;)
