Amanda Bitter Jones

If you were/are a New Kids fan, you might enjoy reading this recap of their recent concert in Houston. I was laughing so hard by myself in my living room that my eyes were watering. Just wanted to share. I'm so ticked that none of my old NKOTB pals could go. I promise I'm not bitter though. (If any of my friends DID go, it would be best not to tell me.)

I went LAST NIGHT to the NKOTB Concert in Dallas at the AACenter. IT WAS AMAZING! I will hopefully be able to post about it shortly, but I am currently putting up pics on my MySpace page right now.

GIRL IT WAS AWESOME! We even made the OLE SCHOOL NKOTB T-shirts w/ pics and puffy paint. It was AMAZING! Ohhh I LOVED NKOTB!!

NKOTB FOREVER!!!

My barbies were so lucky.

Sorry, but I never was a NKOTB fan (well, I didn't know who they were... I guess I was the odd age older than the teens at the time they were hot?). But I did click on your link and read the post and did laugh out loud at one part: where her sister who'd had two kids jumped up and down and... oh.
I laughed.

Been there.
Done that.
Paid nice Mr. Urologist to fix it already. (oh yes I did. and I'm not even f o r t y yet).

Be prayin over that the next several months Amanda. With me, it was that second childbirth that did me in there. Everything was fine up until little sister came along and took forever to come out.
Pray!

:)

You're too funny!:)

My memories:

16 of my friends, 4th grade, 10 yrs old..." Step by Step", and my friend Michelle doing a split at every " Step 5"....she thought she was awesome, yea.
Oh and the pizza guy my mom made come in to wish me happy b-day...

Except I remember going to bed early and mom stayed up with everyone...

Amanda-I have to admit I am going to be bummed right along with you. NKOTB are coming to Tampa and well, I decided not to go. I am 23 weeks prego with twins and could not imagine this almost 32 year old waddling into the arena to see the once loves of my life. They are here on the 2nd of November and well, I do believe that I am going to regret it!
The posts that you linked us to are just to funny! I can totally see myself being totally crazy when they sang. I saw them twice as a teen and oh the memories!

I have been keeping up with your blog since I found out we were do around the same time(me feb 16th). I totally feel your pregnant girl pains! My girl/boy twins will hopefully be delivered at 36 weeks, which will be a few weeks before you. We will just be happy to get to that point!

Take care of yourself and I so enjoy reading your blog!

I was in love with NKOTB. I so wish I still had my tapes. The blog was pretty funny. Thanks for the link.

New Kids on the Block, that's funny!:) My older sister loved that group. I can only remember the "Happy Birthday" song, and maybe two others. I was, like, eight or something...:)

My friend Leslie went and posted it on her blog today. She's in FW, so it was a bit of a drive...

Ben and Kristen said...

That is awesome! Thanks for sharing!

Becca said...

Who was your favorite NKOTB, Amanda? I was in love with Jordan! My friend, Jill, and I would pretend like they were our husbands when we played baby dolls. Oh, the memories!

MITZI said...

You sweet young thing. You and your New Kids friends crack me up. Reading this post I had no idea who New Kids are, then over at your friends blog I remembered, Oh Yeah! My 29 year old daughter had such a super crush on these guys way back when. I'll have to tip her off on your friends blog. :)
In my day, my guys were the Beatles!! I loved George Harrison. Cried and cried watching them on the Ed Sullivan show. I may be older than you but we're no different with our school girl rock crushes. The faces just change.

Lisa said...

Don't worry, Amanda... they probably looked all old and wrinkled. I bet some of them even put fiber in their morning oj. :D

There... hope that made it all better!!!

Jen said...

Hey there!! My name is Jen, I recently came across your blog and love to read it! Thanks for posting this link! So funny! I am still sitting here laughing my butt off!!! :) Jen

Marc and Charity said...

Oh my goodness, that was pretty funny. I'm not sure what to do- NKOTB are coming to Cardiff at the end of Jan.- 7 days before my due date!!!! Probably not a good idea although I would LOVE to be there. On the other hand, would it bring on labor?!? :)

Lori said...

They were on the Today Show a few months ago and I felt like I was 10again watching them! I also had the BIG Joey button, a hat, a beach towell, all the tapes (not CD's...tapes!)

Joey was very in love with me he just did not know it :)

Bryson's Mom said...

Coco said...

Thanks for this I have not laughed so hard in ages!!!! It was made extra funny because I took my daughters to see the Jonas Brothers in August....same type crowd!

Groovewoman ♫ said...

Good to see I'm NOT the ONLY Siesta who went to the NKOTB Concert in Dallas on Sunday night! :D Phew.... It was awesome. I'll be posting a blog about it soon, along with pics, I just haven't had a chance this week. I ♥ JORDAN!!! :D
