(Before I get to typing too fast and end up forgetting... the swirly frame that I used for the quote board on my last post is from Fancy Pants.)
If you can't tell I don't scrapbook in any kind of order. I just work on what's jumping around in my head at that time. That explains why I am posting a Christmas and winter page in September.
So let's talk a little NKOTB!
Was there anyone out there who didn't like New Kids on the Block!?! Allie, I had the ginormous buttons too and just like you I had a Joe one and a group one. Both attached to a denim jacket in a sea of smaller NKOTB buttons (and a few generic buttons with sayings like, 'Bust a Move' and 'whatever' in ultra neon colors.) Would it be too dorky of me to admit that my bedroom was decorated in NKOTB and cough*Iwenttoaconcert*cough. Wow. I can't believe that I told you all that one.
When Mike and I were moving into our new house he happened to find something that I had hoped would never be seen with eyes other than my own. A letter that would forever lessen my coolness factor. (Who am I kidding? What coolness factor!?!) A letter stuffed deep into a box filled with things like my Cabbage Patch doll's birth certificate and notes that were passed back and forth in school. I was unpacking boxes in the kitchen when I heard the crinkling of paper, a snicker and then Mike saying, "Dear Joe, My name is Allison. I'm 16 and I love you. Will you go with me?" Well you could clearly see from my penmanship that I was 8, maybe 9. I could feel my face getting so red from embarrassment. By the time he was done reading my deep and heartfelt love letter we were both in tears from laughing so hard. The things you learn when you move in with someone.
Just for fun tell me who your favorite NKOTBer was and what was your favorite song. AND...
If you're looking for a trip down memory lane or need a little NKOTB pick me up to perk up the day... push play and enjoy.
