My Way Back Weekend

Friday night we kicked off the weekend at a NKOTB concert...yes, another one and it's much more fun when you're not 7 mos. pregnant, btw.

This one was at the same venue I saw them at for the first time (my first ever concert!) back in 1989...20 years ago!! AND I think it was a July '89 but I don't want to dig out my ticket stub to confirm the date (I have a weird little thing about keeping ticket stubs).

And the neat thing is my 16 yr old niece, Alicea, went with us and it was her first real concert! Me and my sister Ang

And Lindy was there too with her friends...only a row away from us (not planned) lol.

NKOTB has a great opening act this time - The Jabbowockeez...an awesome dance group that wears these creepy/cool masks.

They opened with this neat digital versions of themselves....just something different.

This was Alicea pretty much the whole time, lol.

And so it was a concert - fun, fab time...

but then they came out to the audience!!!

In our section we had Donnie to the right....

And Joe to the left!!

I realize if I had better lighting and a camera that wasn't completely craptastic, then these photos would actually look blog-worthy....but trust me, it's them :)

No, it's not a close encounter of the Lindy kind but it made my night!

As if the concert didn't take me back, we had a high school "all ages" type reunion on Saturday.(well until 1999, we didn't want to hang with punks, lol.) And we got to see lots of people we haven't seen in years, which was great even though the kids didn't last long and ended up back at Nece & Pawpaw's house.

Then Bryce got to make a rare trip to hang out with college friends Saturday night so I think we took a serious trip down memory lane.
Now, onto the future:
In case anyone hasn't heard...I'm getting a new little NIECE in December!!!
My SIL is having a girl we found out this week...so Brinley (the only girl out of 6 grandkids) will be de-throned soon, lol.
We are so very happy for Brook & Micheal - she's their first!

Hi, I'm Ginny said...

I'm so jealous! I saw them in March in Tulsa. NKOTB was also my first concert back in third grade. Oh memories.

Wow! What a trip down memory lane! I really wish I could have gone to the reunion and seen everyone! Maybe next time!
