The Block

Last night was the big night. Eighteen years after I saw them for the first time, I was able to witness the greatness that is New Kids on the Block once again. Amy, Michelle and Crislyn all drove up from E-town and we headed to El Guapo downtown to eat before the big show. My friend Nicole met us there since she luckily got tickets last minute! The entire place was packed with New Kids fans. We talked about how excited we were with other groups of girls. I was kicking myself the whole time because we didn't make t-shirts! Next time....

Our seats we bought were not the greatest. We were in the back on the top level. About ten minutes before show time the ticket taker people told us we could go fill in the empty seats on the first level. That is all I needed to hear before I grabbed my purse and we went sprinting, yes sprinting (in heels), down the ramp at the BOK Center and busted through curtain to find our amazing seats. I'm sure we were a sight to be seen. We ended up about fifteen rows from the floor three or four sections from the stage. AWESOME. I could probably go on and on about the amazingness of the show, but I'll just let you see the pictures. Joey is still as cute as ever, Jordan is as zexy as can be ....and Donnie well, the boy can move. Of course I didn't forget about Danny and Jon. They were great as well, but I was always a Joey girl. Jordan did have a great moment that included a mic stand, a fan and an unbuttoned white shirt. WOOHOO He also sang "Give It To You" from his solo album. Very nice. It was easily one of the loudest shows I have ever seen. I lost my voice and my hearing and it was all worth it! Still a fan....

Ginny, that's awesome! I was able to see them when they were in Dallas in October. My mom flew in and her and I went. Ryan had gotten me tickets for my 30th birthday. I almost bought tickets to go to the concert in Tulsa but the girl who was going to go with me had to moonlight that night so couldn't go. But completely understand your excitement! It was an awesome concert and we lost our hearing and voices too!

Okay Ginny, I did it. I've created a blog :) I had so much fun at the concert with you--thanks again for getting all the tickets for us! Let's get together next time you're in E-town, okay??
