Hello everyone! First off I want to say thank you to anyone who purchased from my very first blog sale. Everything shipped yesterday! :) There are lots of things still available, so do check it out if you're so inclined.
Now, anyone who follows me on Twitter might have heard (read?) me gushing about the NKOTBSB (New Kids on the Block & Backstreet Boys) concert. My amazing parents got tickets for me & a friend as an early birthday present (my birthday is in September!). Backstreet Boys are my faaaaavorite! I've been to five shows of theirs before this one! I was completely obsessed with them as a teen (I was all about Howie!), and I still buy their albums. My high school best friend and I were so obsessed, in fact, that we actually went to Howie's parents' house in Orlando and met his dad (we brought flowers for his mom, who wasn't home)! We met some of the guys before a show in Chicago once, too, when we camped out 7 hours before the show. Yeah, obsessed!
I'm a New Kids on the Block fan, too (Jordan's my fave), so needless to say, I was really excited about the show, and felt it was a night worthy of a really dramatic eye. ;)
I also got my hair chopped off earlier in the week - and I'm gradually making my way back to blonde, too. :)

caught a glimpse of the real Nick Carter backstage - nice pic, huh? :P
A few of my pics of the show...
Boyz II Men made an appearance as a surprise for BSB, since Orlando is where the Backstreet Boys got their start - the crowd (including me!) went crazy! All three groups performed "End of the Road" together.
Howie, my favorite!
The End :(
Before I go, I feel like I just can't do a post without including some pictures of Sammy and Mouse. They're growing up so fast!!
Sorry for bombing you all with so many photos, but I just couldn't help myself. ;)
Thanks so much for reading - I love you guys!
(By the way, I can't wait to do my July Favorites post - so many great new discoveries! I'm going to go beyond my usual scope and include non-makeup favorites, too. I might start doing that regularly even... We'll see! See you then!)
