A requirement for my future home...

A hot tub.  Heck yes.  A hot tub.  I think I would rather negotiate on things like food, clothing, and a kitchen table to be able to have a hot tub.  I have my priorities. haha.

The other week my sister and I house/dog sat for my aunt and uncle and they have one of these glorious inventions.  Seriously.....I rate this invention right up there with indoor plumbing.  
And as I have said every year after we house sit...."I am getting one of these when I have a house!"
That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Heck Yes I Was A Teeny Bopper

Last week I wrote about winning tickets to the Mixtape fest!! And this week I was able to be a teeny bopper all over again and experience two days of awesomeness!!  The tickets I won were to both days of the fest and it was EPIC.
I got to see tons of people I wanted to...and some I didn't....
 (ahem... Steel Panther/ vulgar 80's hair band, DJ Pauly D....cough cough) ...
 but there was Kelly Clarkson, LL Cool J (NCIS LA anyone?), The Fray, The Wanted, Carly Rae Jepson (so call me maybe!), New Kids On The Block two times, The Ready Set, and who I came for..... 
And there may have been some girly squeals, serious booty shaking, swoons, and major Nick Lachey crushing going on... it was a BLAST! And now, I will let the photos speak for themselves:

thanks to my little sister for stealing the pictures from her camera!

Talk About A Flashback...

So you know where I will be this Friday and Saturday?

It may or may not have something to do with screaming girls, teenie boppers, choreographed dance moves, and a serious flashback to my pre-teen years...

and it might involve these guys:

and these guys too:

No lie. I will be seeing the Backstreet Boys and 98 Degrees in concert!!And I am freaking excited! And unashamed! 

When my sister and I found out that they would be playing a show near us we freaked and wanted to go (heck yes we did!), we have ALWAYS wanted to see them! And then we looked up the tickets... the cheapest ones were $150 PER TICKET! Whomp whomp. Totally not happening.
Then we heard about a chance to win a pair of tickets through a local radio station, all you had to do was go to a car dealer and enter in your name, be there at a specific time, and hope your name got drawn! 
And so we figured "Why not try?"
And you know what... my name was the FIRST name the pulled out! My sister and I were totally fangirling and jumping up and down and hugging. It was epic. haha. 
And then a few minutes later, my sister won a pair of tickets too! AH! It was our lucky day for real yo!

So this weekend I get to dance and sing and relive my teen years with the Backstreet Boys and 98 Degrees. And I am flipping excited!
