Blast from the Past!

So once upon a time I was crazy over a little boy band named New Kids on the Block. I'm talking very crazy! I had everything ever made with their name on it. My room was like a museum to them complete with the bedspread, dolls, posters,and much more! So you can imagine my reaction when there they were, back together, singing on the Today show this morning! I got to say it was so funny and weird to see this group of boys, now grown men, whom I was obssessed with on tv getting ready for their "comeback". A flood of memories from childhood came racing back when they were singing and dancing to "The Right Stuff" and "Hanging Tough", songs that my friends and I sang and danced to!!! What was even funnier was the little girls this time...but girls my age!! All their old fans...grown up...back again!!

So in honor of this "comeback" I thought it only appropriate to visit the time when I was a teeny bopper in love with the New Kids!! I did some digging while Lane was napping and have included pictures of the time when I thought life just couldn't get any better....I was going to see them in concert! Oh yes, my mom and two other loving mothers stood in line and got their daughters everything they ever wanted (at the time of course!) And to top it off, got us a limo for the wonderful occassion! So take a look, have a laugh, and remember the time when you were crazy over a boy band!!!

P.S. I don't think this time around I'll be buying their CD! (oh and you can click on the pics to see them larger)
Limos sure have changed!
We couldn't go without homemade posters!
Stef, me, Kelly, Tiffany and Brittany!

I love the pictures!!! I saw TKNOTB this morning too. I got to see them in concert as well when
I was little. I don't think I was quite the fan that you were.
