I STILL keep the Backstreet pride alive.

Yes, I do. Since way back in '97 all the way to today. I love the Backstreet Boys, I always will and I don't care who knows it! Seriously, I was a total Backstreet girl through middle school AND high school. I had the posters, the wall plastered in Teen Beat pin-ups, the t-shirts, the cds (of course), the recorded VHS cassettes with EVERY appearance, the Burger Kings toys, all of it. I was hardcore. So, boo ya. I want it that way. I look back on it fondly.Needless to say, I went to the concert last night. Hello, loved it! Eighth freakin' row center! Oh my goodness, I could see everything...every grin, every eyebrow raise...it was glorious! This was the 6th time I have seen them in concert (I'm hoping the next time will be lucky #7 and I might actually meet them!) and I really think I enjoyed it the best. I mean, I don't know, I loved them all, but I was SO close this time, so that might have helped, hehe! I took a ton of photos (over 200, although a lot of those turned out to have, like, an arm in the way or something), but I'll share some of my MOST favorites. I added some more to my FlickR account too, if you'd like to check them out.Now, I know what it looks like...I have a billion of Nick Carter. And yes, Nick was and still is my favorite, but I have to let it be known that I did take photos of the other guys too, because I love them as well, but I swear they had a better spotlight on Nick because nearly every one of the photos of the other guys is dark. For real. So, it was just easier to get photos of Nick, haha. ;)

Speaking of Nick, he was AMAZING last night...he kept dancing all night (not just in the group numbers), and it was so hot. I loved it. Totally and completely. Here's a couple of the dancing...Oh, and check out this photo I got of Nick right as he sang "Am I sexual?" for the second time during "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)"...HOT!They all did a solo number too...totally LOVED AJ's. So fun and full of energy. Will definitely buy his solo album when it is released.

Before I completely overwhelm you with my 1999 self, I'll go. Just know that I really enjoyed last night. So good to be able to still enjoy the same things I did as a pre-teen/teen. Look for the new ScrapMojo challenge in a day or so and also, don't forget to get your layouts in for the latest Inspired By Amelie challenge, as well as your entries for the DT search over there! :)

Rock (or Pop) on,

Ahhh!! I'm so happy you enjoyed it as much as I did, it was soo amazing, you're right! (Although I will say I wasn't as hard core as you were, haha, but still, I totally get it) ;) AJ was my fav that night, so hot. Pop on indeed :) Have a great week!

I think it is awesome that you still like them after all these years. I used to feel the same way about Def Leppard. From the age of 11 until I had my twins at 35, I was obsessed. I finally did meet them and they were so nice. I hope you get to meet your boys in the future.

BTW, I was making some cards tonight and I used some of your RAK supplies. :-) Love it!

Take care - Victoria
