New Kids On The Block - Nashville

This post is a little out of order simply because I had to swipe the pics off of facebook and I had honestly forgotten until I got into my "blog update" mode.

Last Monday night, March 16, was New Kids on the Block at the Sommet Center here in Nashville. If you'll remember, Chris and Kim took J and I to see them in Chicago last year for a nice couple's weekend (thanks again!). When we heard they were coming to Nashville, Kim and I immediately started making plans on who all we wanted to ask to go, etc. Then, Chris called me to tell me he had bought out a suite at the Sommet for Kim's birthday! That meant that Kim would get to invite 15 of her closest friends (I'm honored to be one of them).

So the big night was last Monday. We had thrown around the idea of "dressing up" for the concert, as we had seen many people do this in Chicago. Kim and I thought it could be fun since there was such a large group of us going. Honestly, I didn't know if I would have it in me since we literally had just finished with the consignment sale the day before.

I headed to Goodwill on Monday morning and found the perfect overalls. Osh Kosh acid wash with pleats in the front. Oh yeah! Some faux Sam and Libby's and a can of hairspray and I was ready. Angie V, Laura, Becca and I met on our side of town, while all the Franklin girls met at Lampo and rode together. I had never met Becca before, but had known her hubby from childhood so I was excited to meet her. She was just precious and we had a great time getting to know each other on the ride down.

God was watching out for us and we literally got one of the last parking spots in the church parking lot right next to Sommet (or the GEC as we still call it). We walked right in to the suite which was AWESOME! Tons of food including hot wings, fajitas, gourmet sandwiches, fresh fruit and anything you could want to drink. My favorite moment of the night was seeing Kim's outfit when she walked in and her reaction to ours!

The Jabawoceez (I had no idea if I spelled that right) were the opening act. They were the winning group on that MTV show America's Next Dance Crew (or something like that). Although they were a little creepy with their masks, they were really good and definitely had us dancing a few times. Then, it was time for those Boston boys!

The concert was great as usual! Took me back to 7th grade all over again! A HUGE THANK YOU TO KIM for inviting me. I had so much fun and I love you to death! Enjoy these pics:

So was it as fun as the Chicago show?

It was actually different from the Chicago show. I LOVED Chicago simply because the anticipation was such a build up, they did more old school stuff, and it was fun watching all the stuff for the first time.

This show had more of the new stuff (which I really didn't know) AND Donnie acted like a whore which was really gross. I did LOVE going with a large group of girls which was super fun and I really enjoyed seeing them again. They were both awesome...I don't know if I have a favorite!

I thought that the concert was great - but Donnie was a total sleeze!! I couldn't believe it!! It was great seeing you there - and I am STILL singing their songs.
