The more Sara, the better!

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

Wow I’m behind!

I’ve been thinking about posting, I swear! I’ve got no follow through these days I guess!

So let’s see…
There was New York



Then the NKOTB Cruise…



And of course Boston…



Those were all a blast! I absolutely fell in love with Boston and I can’t wait to go back!

Soon after was my birthday and some fun nights out…




And he told me he loved me, on my birthday (=

A few days later we went to Las Vegas for more NKOTB! And our first vacation together (we survived it!)







So now I’m back to reality, working just one job these days, still broke. Dad’s still living here driving me crazy but that’s a whole ‘nother post for another day.

Other wise all is well in my world!

Here’s a cute pic of Abbie (=



T Minus 9 days!!

woah 3 updates in 1 week?!

LoL.. so in 9 days, i’ll be headed to New York CITY!!! This years NKOTB cruise is leaving from there and heading to Bermuda!!

I’m so excited!! It’s been ridiculous trying to get prepared for this trip because I’ve been so busy with LIFE in general!

Luckily Brenda (my cruise roomie/canadian friend) has been helping out a lot.

I’m getting there the 3rd, staying at a hotel in New Jersey with a different previous cruise roomie, then boarding the boat on the 5th till the 9th! That day we’re spending the night in New York, then renting a car and driving up to BOSTON!!!!!!! for 3 1/2 days!

Soooooo excited, I’ve never been to any of these places before but I’m stoked to finally go!!

I’m definitely in need of this vacation no doubt about that! Tomorrow will be day 6 of 9 w/o a day off from both jobs, so Saturday i plan on sleeping in with my guy, and maybe taking the dogs to do something fun.

Tomorrow night I’m meeting up with my friend Natalie to make my masquerade mask for the ship, I’ve gotta still find time to pack, find my camera, chargers, and batteries! eeek! Oh and I still gotta find something to wear that signifies denver/colorado for one of the theme nights… so much to do!!

I was giving Justin a hard time about how much he’ll miss me while i’m gone, who will pick on him and give him shit?! LoL… did I ever mention I started seeing someone? Well I did, and for the last i dunno 2 months? it’s been really great!  So there’s that… (=

Time to catch up

I should be writing up my lab report thats due tomorrow, but I realized I hadn’t updated this since Sept 16 when we were being flooded!

So things have dried out since then we even got our first snow, and the weather has been its normal colorado bipolar self, hot one day, 30 degrees the next, etc etc.

Lets see lots has happened in the last few weeks..

For school, we went to a cattle farm, learned how to herd the cows,


how to halter them,


and give them medicine with a balling gun (its not a real gun)


Then 3 out of the 15 of us, go to pregnancy check the cows! The vet went in first to make sure they were pregnant, so she could direct us to feel for what we needed to.


So there’s me, (looking fat) shoulder deep in a cow!

Can you believe that?! As gross as it was, it was pretty damn cool, and I did feel the baby! They were about 3-4 months pregnant at the time. I asked a TON of questions to both the vet and the owners. What can I say I think  I really like large animals!






I actually got a perfect score on that lab, and the teacher even said something nice to me about taking charge, and how comfortable I was around them.




Lets see what else.. Oh! The dogs and I did the Wag’nTrail and that was a lot of fun. I thought they were going to be challenging since it was just me with them, but we actually managed pretty well. They got tons of snacks and treats at all the tables and were worn out by the time we got home. So here’s our family portrait for the year!







Last week at my internship, I got to scrub in and assist on a surgery to remove a ROCK from a dog’s stomach!! It was the coolest thing! I got to hold the intestines while the dr cut above and below the rock and then reattached the intestines together. I got to suction out the abdomen while she rinsed it all out. It was by far the coolest surgery I’ve been able to participate it!

This was the SECOND rock the dog has eaten in 2 months. His hair hadent even fully grown back from his last surgery. Hopefully he doesn’t do this again! The owner says he doesnt have rocks in his yard, doesn’t know where the dog is getting them from!

This week I performed 2 COMPLETE DENTALS on dogs with Xrays that I did by myself! Awesome sauce!

There’s only about 2 months left of school and I’m starting to freak out! It seems like we still have SO MUCH TO LEARN and not enough time to do it in! I’m super over whelmed with it all. Between school 3 days a week, internship twice a week, working at ulta 4 nights a week and proplan fri thru sunday I never have time to do anything! I actually asked for tonight off from ulta so that I could stay later at my internship cuz i need those hours!  As I said earlier i’ve gotta get some homework done tonight that’s due tomorrow.

20131003_161835Some unlicensed lady swiped the side of my car on my way home last week. It’s really not that bad of a scratch, but I still reported it to insurance and also called the cops since all she could produce was a mexican consular id, not a drivers license even though she insisted she had one. The cop confirmed that she did NOT, gave her her 2nd ticket for that, as well as an improper lane change resulting in an accident. Which reminds me I need to return the call to that insurance company tomorrow.

20131010_204101Last week I got a weird itchy spot at the bottom of my neck, and on the back of my shoulder, then on the inside of my arm. Looked like some weird rash and got itchier as the days went on. Since I finally (for now) have insurance i went to a dermatologist because I was afraid it might be ringworm, since I work with animals and what not. Fortunately it was not! He said it was some sort of “Nodular Eczema”. They dont know what causes it why it appears or how, its not contagious but goes away easily with super steroid ($46!!!) cream. It’s already feeling a LOT better and way less itchy. I also had them remove a spot on my leg that was possibly a mole or something that I had accidentally shaved off MONTHS AND MONTHS Ago that just refused to heal. So they removed it and cauterized it, sent it off for biopsy just in case. Hopefully it’ll heal now.

In other happier news, I decided to book the next NKOTB Cruise for next year!!! They just announced it the other day, of course with not enough time to process it all and whatnot, but I managed to move some money around and have enough for the deposit. I’ll be rooming with my Canadian friend Brenda again. The reason(s) I decided to do it was because it’s a month after my official graduation, AND the fact that it’s leaving from a different port. Instead of Miami, it’s leaving from NEW YORK CITY!!! and Traveling to Bermuda!!! I’ve never been to either place and I’m so freaking stoked! Now I’ve just gotta figure out how to pay for it all.. hoping my tax refund will come early next year and I can take care of a lot of it with that!


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..

Joey McIntyre and Me

Joey McIntyre and Me

















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!!

NKOTB – The Package Tour – Las Vegas

Starts off with Boyz II Men, Then 98 Degrees, and Finally New Kids On the Block!

I had pretty decent seats better than I thought they were gonna be, great view of everything.

However, I’ll be seeing them again in 6 days!! With EVEN BETTER seats!!!

Ill admit, the first 2 sets with B2M and 98, i bawled my eyes out. They sang all the great songs, On bended knee, end of the road, invisible man,the hardest thing,  all because of you.

The part that really hit home to me though was at the beginning of NK’s show, Donnie’s voice came on accompanied by the following on the screens:

“I promise to celebrate tonight like there is no tomorrow. For this is MY night. I worked HARD for this night. I DESERVE this night. I EARNED this night. And together, we OWN tonight.”

That in itself meant so much to me after everything thats been going on lately. So i tried my hardest to just ENJOY the show, enjoy myself, and take in everything that was going on. I took the least amount of pictures ever because I only had 1 battery with me! But it was nice to pay more attn to the actual show than watching it through my camera.

Vegas bound T minus 6 months!

Well I was able to purchase tix for the Vegas show, they weren’t NEARLY as close as I wanted.. I mean I’m used to being close enough to having sweat on me, but they’re good enough for now. There’s still plenty of time to find better ones online!



They always say “not a bad seat in the house” so that makes me feel a lil better.

Even better news, my friends Claudia and Charligne (from the cruise) decided to go to Vegas too! So we’ll have a fun filled birthday weekend! I’m stoked.

So I’ve got about 6 months to get my ass in gear, get in shape looking good, pay off cc’s and save some money!

Luckily I have $109 in Southwest credit so that’ll help for at least one ticket.

Plus plenty of time to find good rates on rooms. I’d really like to stay at Aria or Cosmo if possible. I know its the weekend following a holiday (july 4th) but I’d figure it wouldn’t still be too bad, since the holiday is in the middle of the week? I dunno. If worse comes to worse, I can ask my travel agent Aunt if she has any hookups.
