A Second Solo Trip

As I've written about before, I work for a disaster preparedness and relief company in Charleston, SC. Every now and again I have the opportunity to travel to emergency preparedness conferences around the country.

Last month, I attended my first solo conference in Loveland, Colorado.


And in July, I'll be attending my second solo show -- in New Orleans!!! :) That's right, I'm headed back to my home, Louisiana! YAY!!!!


Last summer, I went to Nola with a co-worker to attend a national disaster preparedness conference, and had a great experience. While the show wasn't as good as we thought it would be, I was able to meet up with family and friends. :)

My two little cousins, Matt and Micah

This year I'll be going alone, and after the show I'm heading to Lafayette to spend some much needed time with my loved ones! Not only this, but I'll be attending a concert with some of my best girlfriends. But it's not just any concert...


Recognize these guys?? :)

That's right -- I'm going to see New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys!
(aka NKOTBSB)

Now, I was never really a fan of BSB thanks to my true loves, Nsync. However, I am super excited to see these guys in concert. When I was around 6 years old my Mom took me to see New Kids, and it was so awesome! I mean, I feel asleep, but still! (Want to know my excuse? My "love" for Joey was just too much, so I got tired. No kidding, I told someone that. At 6 years old. Bahaha.)

Has anyone seen either group in concert? If so, did you like it? I am so excited for this trip, and so thankful to work for a company that keeps sending me home to Louisiana! :)

Hooray for getting to spend some time with your family while your away for a conference. I believe NKOTB and BSB will make a great cncert. I sadly never went and heard them in person but I've heard they put on a good concert! Hows your work-out stuff going? I've been SICK so i havent started yet :(
