I met Joey McIntyre!!!!!

Last night my mom, aunt, and I went to see Dancing wth the Stars. First, that was absolutely fantastic! (Getting to see Joey Lawrence, Joey McIntyre, and Drew Lachey all in one place certainly helped!) The dancing was amazing and fun and probably made everyone want to run out and take dance lessons. Drew and Cheryl (winners of Season 2) did their famous “Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy” routine and had everyone whooping and hollering for them (there is no other way to describe it.) Cheryl had even added a horseshoe to the back of her little vest – Go Colts! I didn't get a picture of them, but here is a picture of the "set" and of Edita and Joey Lawrence dancing.

The icing on the cake for the evening was after the show. Joey McIntyre (formerly of New Kids on the Block, and who, when I was 10, I was convinced would be my future husband) released a new cd. It’s all of the “classics” – The way you look tonight, Moon River, My funny Valentine, etc. It’s a lot like Michael Buble, who we all know that I love.

Anyways after the show he was signing autographs and taking pictures, and of course I stood in line for it! Luckily I didn’t start crying or say something incredibly stupid when I got up to him. But I did get my cd signed, and my picture taken with him!

Sigh – he’s still so dreamy! (Ignore the orangish face – he still had the makeup from the show on.) I think that all of my childhood fantasies have now been fulfilled. I met Debbie Gibson a few years ago (who, when I was 10, I wanted to be) and then last night Joey McIntyre!!

And yes, I know I’m a dork.

This picture looks much better on my home computer than my work one. And don't worry - I think all of us that are in the mid 20's are dorks when it comes to NKOTB.
