Hangin' Tough


I know that some people might find it silly, lame, waste-of-money... you get the idea. But these guys really know how to entertain! I bought our tickets (Jake agreed to go with me) while we were still in Boston. I had them stuck on the fridge for over 4 months! This was a weekend trip long over due and much appreciated.

I'll basically hit the highlights (not in any order).

  1. We got SO MUCH sleep.
  2. No kids for 48 hours!
  3. We ate at Minsky's for 2 of our meals. (calzone one meal, chicken tostada pizza the other)
  4. Bought furniture at Nebraska Furniture Mart for the basement's "game room".
  5. Put make up on (second time in over a year)
  6. I was 5 FEET from Nick Carter and AJ McLean.
  7. Jake quote, "QUICK! Go touch a Back Street Boy!"
  8. There were NO Men's restrooms. Jake had to use the "family restroom".
  9. I saw lots of women in NEON outfits.
  10. There were 2 guys dressed as boy band members. (hat side-ways and overalls with only one strap fastened)
  11. TONS OF WOMEN! All shapes and sizes.
  12. They played one of our favorite songs as an intro to the NKOTB. (Drop Kick Murphy's)
  13. Matthew Morrison was one of the opening acts! (My GLEE experience is complete!)
  14. I was deaf for about 2 hours after the show.
  15. We were up to almost MIDNIGHT!!! (we don't even do that on NYE)
Needless to say, I loved every minute. I didn't take any pictures, but I LIVED every minute. We really enjoyed our weekend. (Thank you, Jen.) Our next big "sans kids" trip... Kauai, HI!!!

Now we all know that if it was Joey you were 5 feet from you would have touched a NKOTB. Joey always was the cutest one :)
