Scrapblog Madness

Let me start off by saying that since I blog so infrequently these days... I don't know if anyone still reads this or not, so leave me a lil comment if ya stop by!!

So, thanks to Mandy and Misty, I spent all day yesterday on working on these: (make sure you go through the slide show and look at all three!)

As Mandy said on Gal Blog, sometimes you just don't wanna get everything out and actually scrap, but you are still in the mood. I have worked on a couple of times, but only for the banners on my blog. This is my first official digital scrapbook attempt. (I kind of feel like I am cheating on paper scrapbooking a little, but it is what it is.)

In other news, my sister-in-law Amber, our friend Maggie, and I went to Virginia Beach last Friday to see New Kids on the Block and the Jabbawockeez. And let me just say, it was one of the greatest nights of my life!!! The concert in general was amazing! The Jabbawockeez were awesome. If you aren't familiar with them, let me show you what I mean:

So, after that, Jesse McCartney was the second opening act... yea yea whatever, let's get to what everyone came to see... then, it was time! New Kids were great. Haters can hate, lol, but I have loved them since I was 7 years old, and I will always love them. :) During the show, the guy behind us said something about the after party and told us where it was... and I almost jumped out of my skin, while at the same time thinking to myself, "Don't get too excited, he's probably full of shit." But before that story... Lemme show you some pictures from the concert.

Um, first of all, it was a monsoon that night and we were SOAKED!!!

(Let me just point out the top of my jeans that were dry and have you notice the rest of my jeans...)


Another group shot from later that night when we were not so soaked.

Then, to top off an incredible night and concert, we decided to try and find this random place in Virginia Beach that we didn't know the name of, but knew that maybe, just maybe, this guy knew what he was talking about and NKOTB and the Jabbawockeez would be there, so what the heck, might as well try, right? So we drove around Virginia Beach for about... 45 minutes before we were all so close to just going back to the hotel, and then! We saw the nightclub!!!!!! We get out, stand in line, and overhear someone say that the cover charge is $50!! Um, I like these guys and all, but hell no, I'm not paying 50 bucks to get into this club! So, we realize then that all the security guys' shirts say "The Block"... and that they must not be at the club yet... so why not wait around outside to see if they show up?? About 5 minutes later, someone says, "Oh, there's the dancers and the Jabbawockeez!" And right behind me on the sidewalk (cuz we have now stepped out of the line knowing good and well that we are not paying $50) and they were all behind me! THEN! I hear someone else say, "There he is!" and realize another van has pulled up, so I say, "Who?" And she says, "Donnie!" So I pretty much decided to try and talk to him before he walks in. He is literally walking up the sidewalk coming up beside me, and at this point, a huge crowd has not formed yet, and I put my arm out and say "Hey Donnie" as he walks by... THEN! He says, "Hey. Come on." AND GRABS MY HAND AND PULLS ME WITH HIM INTO THE CLUB!!! I end up yelling for Maggie and Amber and they push their way through the crowd that is now surrounding us like there is no tomorrow! We seriously walked into the club in this order: Donnie, guy with a microphone introducing Donnie, me, Amber, and Maggie. It was so amazing!!! Here are some pics to prove it, cuz for real, if I read this on someone else's page, I don't think I would have believed it... but it happened, I promise!!!

(The girl in front, with the red hair and you can only see the back of her head... that's me!)

And here we are with Kevin from the Jabbawockeez! He was so nice!!!

So, hope you enjoy the pictures! Have a good week, everyone! I know I will, even if I am working like, every freakin day, I will have a good week from remembering my wonderful weekend!

the randomness that is deah... thoughts, ponderings, and musings... with some scrapping thrown in
