Kinda playing, but kinda making up my own rules

I love randomness, so I stole this from my friend, but I'm not at all playing by the actual rules, I'm just doing my own thing.

List 11 Random facts

1 - I've attributed my weight to the way I socialize. I'm a very social person, but when I get together with friends, it usually involves food. So who wants to hang out doing something that doesn't involve eating?

2 - My Danny Wood obsession may have hit an all time high.

3 - I love people too much, sometimes to the point of being blind.

4 - I'm completely convinced that someday I'll be a millionaire.

5 - I accidentally lie about my age. I am 38, but I usually say 36, not sure why... It's my default point.

6 - I used to walk everywhere, I need to start doing that again.

7 - Last night I applied for a job I am not qualified for, but am really hoping I get it.

8 - I need new recipes. Now accepting suggestions.

9 - I'm still waiting for the growth spurt everyone told me was coming when I was younger.

10 - I am really…

The best concert EVER

Not to sound conceited, but if you ask my friends, they would probably tell you I'm a fairly intelligent level headed chic. I'm generally pretty sane, except when it comes to anything that has to do with NKOTB, in particular Danny Wood, then I lose my shit and become a 13 year old babbling idiot.

It's no secret that I'm a tiny bit of a New Kids on the block fan. ( or I have a ridiculously unhealthy obsession with... Either or)

So lets go back 25 years shall we?

I was 13, he was 19..

It was love at first sight ... Well on my end it was..

It started with one poster, and then two, then three, then pretty soon my room was wallpapered with Danny Wood.

I spent countless hours listening to every tape ( yes kids tapes) that they ever made.

As I got older you would think my obsession would fade, but oh no it grew and grew. Many many concerts later... It finally happened....
Last Sunday my best friend and I

went to see NKOTB in concert (again)
She got us amazing seats near the stage…

20 years of greatness, ( aka The reunion I almost didn't go to)

You read that right Show Low peeps, I almost didn't go.

Lets roll the dial back 20 years. I was awkward, scrawny, and not the most popular chic in our booming metropolis of Show Low. I know, I know, hard to believe but true. I also know its been 20 years, Lord knows I've changed, and it was a safe bet everyone else had too. Still there was trepidation and a whole lot of "what ifs". I tried to keep in mind that in the past year I really got to know one of the guys who quite honestly I thought was kindof a douche, and he and his amazing girlfriend have become as close as family to us.

Now I did highly doubt that anyone was going to call me "Amy LouFart" or pull my chair out from under me... But still... Some negative memories flooded back, and for a moment I was that sad kid who just wanted to fit in.

As it turns out the day before we left I got horrible sick, my van started to act weird, I was freaking out about leaving 2 of my boys behind, I told my husband …
