Kansas Day I

Tuesday my sweet husband put me on a plane and I headed to Kansas. My awesome sister picked me up and we headed to lunch to meet.... S!!! Her blog is private right now, but this is her in the middle:
S is totally cool. She was funny and warm and sneaky!! She paid for my lunch and my sister's lunch without us knowing. NOT cool S! I told you I was paying for you!! She also got to watch me eat my weight in cream puffs. (They were deluctible!!) I had so much fun hanging with her, so we planned to meet again the next day. I had never been to Independence and it wasn't far from my sister's home, so we decided to meet at this cool angel store the next day.That nite was the concert. I was so excited. My sister and I got ready. (Ok, I just changed shirts & my sister pulled her hair up but whatever...) Then we g00gled directions to head to the concert. Then we got totally lost. Stupid g00gle. Thanks to my BIL we made it and wow- it was so funny to see the crowd. It was all 30-something year old women and like 12 guys. There were a few women dressed in totally 80's clothes- like leg warmers and Flashdance shirts. That would have been more appropriate for Madonna's Like a Virgin tour considering NKOTB were hot in the late 80s early 90s- NOT 1984. Before the concert you could text to a certain number and your text might show up on a screen above the crowd. I can't tell ya how many posers spelt "Donnie" wrong. Hello- it's IE not Y. We weren't there to see Donny Osmond. Anyway... Natasha Bedingfield opened for NKOTB and I really liked her. I'm gonna download some of her songs later for my iPod. Then... it was time. The moment I had been waiting 18 years for...
Here's me seconds before NKOTB hit the stage. Yes, my eyes are teary. I was ready to bawl.
And... that's all you get today. I shall post more tomorrow. :)

That last pic leaves me in total suspense.

I had no idea how deep your NKOTB love ran. I'm lovin' it.

One of these is NOT like the other! Thank heavens i didn't eat my weight in cream puffs! :) S

S said...

Tori I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad your 18 year dream to see Donnie again came true. It was so fun to be a part of it!

My only regret is not letting the "where is the bill" conversation go on just a tad bit longer!

This is the show me state and I SHOWED you! LOL

MommyJ said...

So glad you had a good time:) I bet S is awesome.

Is that the same sister from the tire picture?

Tori :) said...

You're right S- I'M not pregnant like you and my sister. :)

Yes Mommy J, that is the tire sister and the llama sister. We are cool. ;)

Stacey said...

I'm so excited for you! You look so happy! :D

Was anyone copying my style? The "tight jeans rolled up to the top of two different colored pairs of socks,the baggy t-shirt with the sleeves rolled up,with the rockin' high tops and sah-weet four inch tall bangs". I was so radical.

PJ said...

So fun! Way to take some time out for pure FUN:D

Yvonne said...

How fun. I'm sure you forgot about those 18 years as soon as it all started.

Yum those desserts look wonderful.

Waiting for more.

Klin said...

I don't even have anything clever to say.

I used up all my gangsta stuff on Sei, and I'm quite certain he was not even close to thinking about being frightened.

I wish I had been there to see your face. I can just imagine how excited you were.

You look totally hot in your pink shirt. My other helper (not Sei) that helped me decide between the two was right on.

S looks a lot like her sister.

Yay for you Tori! No kids and Donnie ;)

Physcokity said...

WOOT! I'm super stoked to hear the rest of this epic tale. I'm sure you'll remember this for the rest of your life!

Physcokity said...

Did Donnie remember you? ;)

No Cool Story said...

S is the bestest S everest!
Posers!
80's rejects!
Lost!
Getting ready!
Cream puffs!

This adventure has everything. You lucky.

omar said...

Wait, let me see if this works:

S, I'm paying for your dinner tonight.

omar said...

I'm glad you had fun! Probably not as much fun as surfing in Hawaii, but whatever. :)

Those desserts look tasty.

Do they have new songs or anything? Or did they just get back together to try to relive 1989?

Nancy Face said...

I'm so happy you got to meet S! And eat cream puffs! :D

Nancy Face said...

You and your sister are both gorgeous! I LOVE your shirt on you! :D

Nancy Face said...

I went to see Donny Osmond a few years back. The place was overflowing with 40-year-old women and a few husbands, including mine, haha! :)

Sure Omar no problem i'll buy, but you will have to go to a NKOTB concert shortly thereafter.

JustRandi said...

Amanda said...

Yummm, those creme puffs look way yummy! I may or may not be drooling right now....

So glad that you had such a great time! :) S sounds really nice. I need more friends like that. ;)

Lauren said...

S is so beautiful! How fun you got to meet her...and that she paid for lunch...AND that you ate cream puffs...AND you wore your Jacob shirt! Yay!

Umm...you are totally crying. That is so awesome. Kinda like how I cried at:

1. disneyland during the fireworks show.
2. HSM3
3...and I am predicting the Twilight movie too.

Lauren said...

I am totally weirded out to find that my mom went and saw donny Osmond in concert a few years ago. Why do I have to find out tragic events via the blog?

Suzanne said...

LOL! Tori, you look so excited in that last pic. How fun! And those pastries look yummy. :)

Mel said...

I want one of those cream puffs! Can't wait to hear more about the NKOTB. Natasha is more my style;) Glad you are having a good time!

P.P.A. said...

Tori must be in mourning in light of the news of this tragic event:

I love how you have sweet-n-low in the background of the plate full of cream puff deliciousness. That hilarious! I want some! Cream puffs, not sweet-n-low, of course.
