step one: we can have lots of fun

i am an adult. i've been an adult for a number of years. i have a job, two kids, a kind-of husband, a house. all adult things. but today, i'm a teenager. i woke up giddy because we're going to NKOTBSB* tonight. i have to admit, i was never a huge fan. i was a little bit old for the NKOTB craze, and even older for the BSB craze. but it didn't stop me from crushing on joey mcintyre (i never crushed on any of the backstreet boys...but i did love the song "i want it that way"). so i'm very excited for tonight. and i think about 50% of the excitement is just the going out part. to be able to dress up, get made-up and go out and have a few beers (few?) sounds delightful to me. the fact that i might have to calm my friend jamie down (stop screaming like a little girl,'re a 40-year old man), or dry nora's eyes when NKOTB come on stage...well, that's just the adult part of me kicking in.
so here's what i'm wearing tonight. unless of course i head over to marshalls during lunch and find something better. we'll see. i wanted to go for a kimmy gibler adult look – loose shirt, skinny jeans, lots of bangles. cause you know, anytime you go to a tiger beat sort of concert, you have to ask yourself, WWKGW**?

and this, of course, will be me tonight
i can pretty much guarantee that at one point in the night i will scream, "i love you joey!!!"

*for the more sane person, NKOTBSB is a very clever mix of new kids on the block and backstreet boys
** this is my very clever acronym for what would kimmy gibbler wear. i'm thinking of making bracelets.


  1. That is hilarious! Hope you have a great time! And I remember Kimmy Gibler, lol.

    I get to go out next week, hopefully I can stay up past my bedtime (that's 10:00 pm).

  2. I'm in love with that necklace. Drool. :)

  3. Gorgeous necklace! <3

  4. A FEW beers? *snort*

    This outfit is SO sophistimicated compared to what I'll be wearing tonight. I fear I will look like an adult toddler in my old NKOTB tee and shorts.

    Please advise; I'm seriously considering altering my shirt - cutting out the collar and shortening it into a crop, but I'm afraid I'll do it wrong and it will end up hideously deformed. What would YOU do?

  5. You look adorable! I hope you have a fantastic time.

  6. Ahh have so much fun! I was a child of the BSB era, and while I was always more of an NSYNC girl myself, it sounds like it's going to be a fabulous concert! I LOVE the Kimmy Gibler look too-- perfect for the occasion and still chic :)

  7. Cute outfit for the concert. I love those platforms and like always I was too late in buying them in my size. Have a great time and yell "Joey, I love you" really loud, at least just once :)


  8. That's a perfect concert outfit!! Hope you ladies had fun!!

  9. I'm so jealous - part of me is still stalking Donnie.

  10. joey was my fav too, yell a little louder just for me please!! have an amazing time!!

  11. A few weeks ago I had to figure out what to wear to a Britney Spears concert. It ended up being pretty similar to what you're rocking - only I didn't realize I was chanelling La Gibler. The bracelet idea made me laugh.

    I hope you have so much fun tonight! I had a big ol' crush on Jordan back in the day. :)

  12. Oooh! Have so much fun tonight! I can't wait to hear all about it!

  13. OMG, Kimmy Gibler! hahahah, thanks for the laugh :)

  14. I want a bracelet! This could be your next giveaway...thanks for reminding me about kimmy gibler. This post was too funny and I see you have on your concert face! Debbie

  15. SO jealous that you get to see the (old) New Kids - ha. I had posters, a watch, a trapper keeper with matching folders, a nightgown, etc. etc...Donny was my fave until he got in trouble, and then it was Joey. Hope you had a BLAST!

  16. haha you are so cute! and i adore those shoes. hope you had a great time.

    xo, lizzie
