Daily dribble about life, pets, coupons and of course NKOTB!

On The Move

Finally, after 5 LOOOONG years, I’m moving!!! I’m super duper excited!

A friend of mine bought a house, so she moved out of her rental early, and we were able to swoop in early and snatch it up before it was put on the market!! Denver is in a crazy housing ordeal right now (ugh, thanks weed legalization), we have like the 4th highest rental rates in the whole country its ridiculous.

So anyways, its a 2 bedroom, 1 bath, full basement and, AND! HAS A BACKYARD FOR THE DOGS!!! Hardwood floors throughout, no dishwasher though, sad face. My friend was gracious enough to leave her washer and dryer for us AMAZEBALLS as well as a free standing AC unit. I must admit, the backyard having part is selfish on my part, that i don’t have to walk the dogs in the snow anymore (=  It’s only about 20 minutes away from where I am now, really less than 15 miles. But its in a part of town I’ve never LIVED in, but I am somewhat familiar with. I’ll adjust fine. Just need to find where all my grocery stores are to get my couponing done!

I’ve been packing for WEEKS now, because I’m a procrastinator, and I pretty much have all the major stuff done. Just have to take apart the bed friday night, and the speakers in the living room and all the things I cant pack cuz i need, like shower stuff, makeup etc.  I’ll have to spend all day sunday cleaning the old place so I can be done with it. The cats are gonna be stressed, the dogs are gonna love it I hope.

Wednesday I leave for my next NKOTB cruise!! Such a time crunch on all this but it is what it is. I’m not 100% prepared for this cruise as usual, but whatevs its my vacation and I’ll make due!

Welp I gotta get back to packing, well after I finish the new Blacklist episode!!

Today Santa came to petsmart to take photos and collect donations for the dumb friends league!

We had a ton of visitors and raised a lot of money!

I wanted to get Abbie during my lunch, but I ran out of time to get her while I was helping a family adopt a  sweet kitty.

I didn’t float away

If you haven’t heard, Colorado has been under siege from mother nature!

This first picture was on my drive home from my internship around 1pm.. on a normally packed freeway.

image

This was two intersections from my house a main thoroughway between Aurora to Denver. . . They just shut it all down because water was just rushing down all 8 lanes..

image

This here, we’re driving down the center lane, because the right 3 lanes are flooded out and it just got worse the closer i got to home.

image

Once I did get home, I wasn’t able to leave because they were shutting down all the streets around me, so I ended up not being able to get to work which was fine with me! 

Snagged these off facebook..

Here’s a link to some of the videos I took on instagram

Someone posted this video on Facebook, this is literally across the street diagonally from me. Where I go to 7-11, Walgreens, and Starbucks… Aurora, CO Alameda and Havana (make the video smaller when you watch it, click the box in the lower right corner if its too big) needless to say this street was closed for about 2 days at the intersection, and they’re currently in the process of fixing the sidewalks and streets.

One More Night with The Kid!

Sunday was the closing show for Joey McIntyre’s The Kid here in Denver so of course I had to be there to support him!

I actually took my friend, and manager from work cuz she was interested in seeing it. She really liked it and had a good time, and sat back and people watched all us NK girls interact she thought we were crazy and hilarious LoL!

Afterwards, to make things faster, they asked everyone to group in to 6 to take pics with him afterwards, and because it was still raining out.

I was lucky enough to get TWO pictures! Both with groups of my friends so it worked out well. The second group was short one person and no one else was stepping up so I said I’d go again! And since I’d made nice with the gentleman at the door he let me!

Joey McIntyre is “The Kid”

Joey Mcintyre of NKOTB is doing a one man show HERE in DENVER called “The Kid”.
He actually debuted it last week and of COURSE I was there for opening night. Its based on his life, career, family, all that good stuff. Rob Lewis is his musical director, and he was all the musical director for the last tour, and he’s been on the cruises with us before.

There was of course acting, singing, laughing, dancing, overall it was good times. If you’re in denver between now and the 15th, you should definitely go see it!

Afterwards a few of us hung around outside the theater hoping Joe would come out… we chatted and caught up on lives and gossip like girls do… after about an hour or so.. i was hemming and hawwing about whether to leave or not… and then Rob Lewis came out, chatted with us, asked how we liked the show etc.. we asked how he was managing in denver, restaurants he should try and all that good stuff..

After about I dunno 15 minutes, Joe came out the front doors and saw us all. He said “Are you guys waiting for me?” I said yes, you did so good Joe! We loved it! And gave him a hug.. then he goes “Well do you wanna take some pictures?” And we all said yes!

So here’s a pic of me and Joe..

There was also a photographer from the Denver Center for Performing Arts there, taking pictures of us, taking pictures with Joe! Then they put them on their Facebook the next morning so that was cool!

I had such a good time Thursday night at the show, I decided to go back Saturday night since tickets were still discounted and some of my girls were going again! We had another great night, saw Joe quickly after the show, some of them got pics with him, but I didnt wanna push it and bug him. We stayed late in the bar and hung out with Rob since he remembered us, had some drinks and a yummy shot, lots of good laughs and stories and overall a great time was had!

This is us posing on the stage..

I plan on going back at LEAST 1-2 more times. I definitely want to buy tix to closing night and see how it all wraps up, and Ill probably go another night cuz my manager wants to go with me. It’s been a great experience so far, and I want to be as supportive as I can since not a lot of things like this come through here for us NK fans!!

Mammoths and Mastadons!

So the man and I took my parents to the Denver Museum of Science and Nature today. They have a special exhibit of mammoths and mastadons right now. Some are the bones found in snow mass a few years ago, others are on loan from other museums. Pictures were prohibited of most items but a few things were okay.

After that we went to la casita and introduced them to Colorado green chili and stuffed our faces. I’ve gotta take them to the airport in the am and that’s the end of their trip. It was short but nice.

Song Filled Saturday

So back in September i saw a tweet from Tony Lucca saying they would need people to work their merchandise booths at upcoming stops on his tour and to contact them if you wanted to help. So I did and we emailed back and forth a couple times and then that was it. Then Saturday morning I surprisingly got an email again saying sorry for the short notice, but if I was able to help them out that night at his show they’d appreciate it (and i’d get to see a free show!)

Since it was Saturday night, and I had no plans, and the venue was literally 5 minutes away from me, I thought what the hell!

Now if you don’t know who Tony Lucca is, he was the runner up on Season 2 of The Voice. He was awesome on the show, and has had plenty of success on his own before and after the show. His opener was Justin Hopkins , who was also on season 2 of the voice! They were both such nice and personable guys! I got to talk to Justin a lot before and after his set and after the show.

I was set up with an ipad and an iphone to sell their items with t-shirts and cd’s and to take donations for their charity work. Let me tell you, I sold a LOT of merchandise. T-shirts were $20 a pop and cd’s were $10, and boy do those add up fast!! Tony was like YOU DID AWESOME MY PHONE WAS BLOWING UP! Because every transaction got sent to his email lol.

I took a couple videos, but the sound is kinda skewed because it was such an intimate venue, my phone doesn’t pick up the sound great. But I had an awesome head on view of the stage and I was right next to the sound guy, so to ME it sounded awesome.

So here’s some pics from last night..

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I had a great time at a free show and it occupied my saturday night! Justin signed his cd’s for me, and said that when he was done with his show in the springs this weekend, he’d sign a poster he had from the voice and send that to me too! Such awesomely nice guys, I’m so glad I got to hang out with them! Told them next time they’re in Denver to call me and I’ll work for’em again!
