I was QUITE the New Kids on the Block fan in my younger years. I know I’ll date myself as seeming really young to some and really old to others by showing you guys this:
That’s my first grade class picture, taken in the fall of 1990. It was about 95 degrees that day, but Mom had just bought me this awesome new NKOTB sweater and I just HAD to wear it in my class picture… with the side pony tail, of course. I had NKOTB shirts, buttons, trading cards, and a special affection for Jordan, whom I named one of my baby dolls after (even at the tender age of 7, I was CONVINCED that we were going to meet and fall in love).
They were on the Today Show this morning (which you can see more of here), and they are going on a reunion tour with Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers this summer. The closest they will be to here is Chicago, so we will probably not be making it to a concert, but wouldn’t that be fun?? A stadium full of twenty and thirty something women reliving their childhood right along side pretween girls living their childhood for the first time. It could be a fun mother-daughter or sister-sister or aunt-niece bonding experience!
For all of the old-school NKOTB fans out there… enjoy my personal favorite song/video- The Right Stuff.
