Hangin' Tough!

Remember these boys from Boston??

Well, they are all grown up now and still major cuties (in my opinion, at least!)

I'm feeling a little bit noustalgic because I just heard that New Kids On The Block are REUNITING and will be doing a reunion tour! How crazy is that! This article tells the tale, but it also made me realize I'm getting old! Hangin' Tough is 20 years old this year! Was I really TWELVE when it all started!?

It really feels like yesterday I was one of the screaming mimi's at Starwood Amphitheater - WAY BACK IN THE BACK - screaming, dancing and waving our hands like crazy, just so one of the "hot guys," like Joey or Jordon or Donnie, MIGHT see us, in the midst of that crowd of 25,000 preteen girls while Joey McIntyre croaned Please Don't Go Girl! I think I went to three of their concerts, had SO many scrapbooks and posters and bought all the teen magazines, like TigerBeat (remember THAT one!) for the fold-out posters, articles with tidbits that might give you an inside view into one of their lives' in Boston, or trivia questions about the boys. I guess every generation of girls has their own Boy Band and NKOTB was my generation's idols!!

Remember when you were singing along with these great one:
Step By Step
Didn't I (Blow your mind this time?)
You Got It (The Right Stuff)
I'll Be Loving You (Forever)

Ahhh...memories. I wonder if I can talk anyone into going with me to a reunion concert if they come anywhere near my neck of the woods? I know...cheesey, but think about it - how totally fun could that be!! Leave the kids and husbands at home and get a group of girls together and go and just be silly and goofy and 13 again? I'm totally in...anyone else?
