Backstreet's Back

This past Friday I got to see my first boyfriend Nick Carter. (What? There's nothing right with that?) Although it technically wasn't just him but the rest of the Backstreet Boys, as well as the New Kids. (NKOTBSB baby!) We drove out to Lafayette, and thankfully left early to avoid traffic. (We saw 3 accidents on the way, not to mention the fire on the side of the road.) After spending $70 on a (single one) t-shit and a (again single one) program, we were off to our seats to enjoy our drinks. I went to take a photo of my strawberry daiquiri to document it for the blog except...
The flash on my camera was dead! I had made sure the camera itself was charged, and while I had noticed my flash acting up lately I hadn't really thought about it. But here I was with a camera without a flash. I started having flashbacks to when I saw Nick Carter's solo tour (the last time I actually saw a BSB member in concert), when I guiltily confessed my camera to the security guard and he took the battery out. Except this time I was prepared, and was still able to use my cell phone...
And my flip video camera.
Except we were one the floor, and by the the middle of the show we started to get comfortable to run up to the stage when they were close. And from a certain distance, with all the lights you don't really need a flash.
Jordan & Joey
Although in all of the great photos I took I didn't get a single good one of Nick, which could have made for a slightly disappointing night except...

Right after I took this photo
Howie touched my hand!!! So that definitely completed my night.

Yes, I realized I sound like such a teeny, but it was so much fun! And, now ending this point the best way possible, with a final bow.


  1. Too fun! I remember seeing NKOTB in middle school.

  2. Yay! I look forward to seeing them in a couple of weeks.

  3. Woohoo!! How fun!!! They were totally my favorite band when I was younger ;)

  4. So jealous! Both times NKOTB has come to Nashville, I have been pregnant and just dont feel like fighting the crowds. Blah!

    Glad you had fun :)

  5. How awesome!!! They got sooo close to the fans!

  6. Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm gonna out myself as a BSB fan, too. I actually got to see them again when they played London in 2009 - definitely brought back those teenybopping memories.
