My friend and I got to do something really exciting this week! We got to meet the queen of bling herself, Sondra! She is the genius behind all the gypsy gowns on a hit TLC reality show. My BFF and I watch all the time and dish about it. She is actually a local person and her studio is about 15 minutes from my apartment. So we are commissioning her to make a really fun (and of course BLINGY!) belt for my wedding dress. I can’t wait to see it!
My friend and I were so happy to meet her. Her studio is amazing, not one surface left un-sparkled. Heck, even the address plate on her building is straight blingin’. She is also really nice. She spent some time in her busy day to talk with us and take a picture in front of her pink creation. I hope to see this dress on a gypsy bride soon!
I can’t wait to go back and see what my belt looks like, I’m hoping I can use it for something after my wedding too as I’m sure I’ll want to wear it again. Anyway, my veil should be arriving soon, and I finished ordering wedding invites, info cards, and RSVP cards for the big day. I don’t plan to start sending anything out until the summer. But I like to be prepared. I’m trying to balance time between moving and wedding things. But I think I need to shift gears and concentrate on moving (whenever that will be!).

I went to the I Love The 90’s tour over the weekend in Worcester. I don’t think I’ve gone to the DCU center before, so it was fun. I went with a fun group of friends, and we danced our faces off from the stands. Jamie got us good seats, so we weren’t with the crowds on the floor, but were in second row in the stands.
The show had Salt N Pepa, Vanilla Ice, All-4-One, Coolio, Tone Loc, and Young MC. I think we arrived a tad too late to catch Young MC. We had dinner beforehand at The Citizen. I had jeweled cat ears, painted whiskers, and a cat face shirt on for the show. I ordered the aristocrat burger, but I purposely kept calling it the aristocat burger. HAR! I probably made far too many cat jokes that evening, but my friends still love me. So they are good people…even after I said I had to use the litter box.
I have to say, I was very impressed with Lizz’s light up vest. I totally want one now, but have no idea when I would wear it…except for a 90s’ concert (of course!). Well, the tour is coming back around next year. So maybe a light up vest is in my future? All the performers did a great job. I was a little bummed Coolio didn’t perform the theme to Kenan & Kel, but I’ll forgive him because he shook my hand!
Vanilla Ice was the headliner, and he really wanted to party. He invited some audience members on stage to dance with him. Even after the concert was over, the DJ was spinning 90’s hits, and good ol’ V.Ice was still dancing and singing with people on stage. HOW AWESOME?!

So I was reading an article the other day about Fuller House. Basically, Jodie Sweetin and the cast has given up on asking the Olsen twins to make an appearance. This really grinds my gears for some reason. I don’t care they “retired” from acting, and have “reasons” for not wanting to be part of the reboot. They could at least suck it up and make a quickie appearance in an episode. Maybe they aren’t intentionally trying to let people down, but I’m interpreting it this way.
I’m not being greedy and saying they need to be in the entire upcoming season. But I think they (or just one of them really) can spare a few hours and make a vague appearance, no? Nothing annoys me more than celebrities that refuse to acknowledge where they got their start. If I was a child star, I would total do a reboot of whatever helped make famous. So please, Olsen twins (I know you totally read my unpopular blog) and make an appearance in season 2 of Fuller House! Or maybe volunteer the other Olsen, Elizabeth. I mean, she does look quite a bit like her sisters, I’m sure she could pull off Michelle Tanner. Plus she can’t say she “retired” from acting, she was just in the last Captain America flick.
I don’t know how anyone can ever get sick of seeing NKOTB. Erin and I had an absolute blast at the show! Seeing Nelly brought back so many high school memories. We were really blown away by TLC’s set. They had a tribute to Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes and said they would never replace her. It was a very touching tribute, and everyone lit up their phones, it was amazing!
Is it getting hot in here, or is it just me?! haha! I took a million photos, but I gave myself only 5 minutes to create collages and deal with my selections. I think that is the best way for me to do it, snap decisions!
I really want the holographic overalls T-Boz and Chilli wore, they were pretty snazzy. I’m so glad they toured with NKOTB, it was a great chance to finally see them in concert.
As luck would have it, our part of floor section was right near where the New Kids enter and exit the stage. I tried to get video, but they were wearing boxing robes with hoods, so it was hard to see. The bouncers blocked the entrance of our row so we wouldn’t run up and touch them. DAMMIT! But hey, Donnie totally gave me a high five at the other concert I was at, so I can live with it. PLUS my friend and I met Jordan Knight years ago.
There was loads of confetti and fireworks, which is fine with me. Erin and I had to pick a bunch of confetti from our hair and pockets after the show.
One of my favorite parts of the concert was when Donnie had his son Elijah play drums during one of their songs. He did a fantastic job. Clearly inherited his dad’s musical talent. Speaking of inheriting musical talent, Joey Mac brought his son up on stage to sing. IT WAS THE MOST ADORABLE THING I’VE EVER SEEN! Then Donnie sang a song to his mom Alma, that was in the audience. She cried. Then he made out with Jenny (cue yucky face!). Oh man, it was such a fantastic show. I can’t wait to see them again.
Aside from going out on Friday, I pretty much stayed in the rest of the weekend. We didn’t end up getting any trick or treaters and I forgot to fix Zorro’s Bantha costume. But I think I’ll work on it this week and make him wear it for a few seconds anyway. I “forgot” to turn the porch light on, so that could be why we didn’t get anybody stopping by for candy. I think I did that accidentally on purpose so I could eat all the Twix bars.
Anyway, my weary soul needed the time off from schlepping around in a costume party-hopping. But I did manage to watch some good movies! We finally got to watch Jersey Boys and I didn’t realize that real-life Joe Pesci was friends with the group and that the character of Tommy DeVito he plays in Goodfella’s is based off of the real Tommy Devito. Overall, I thought it was a good movie. John Lloyd Young sounds exactly like Frankie Valli!
I also dragged Andy to see Gone Girl at a small local theater. The theater is really old, built in 1912 and the heating system is quite noisy, but they have tables in between certain rows, which was cool. I liked the movie, it followed the book very closely, which is something I always appreciate. Rosamund Pike did an excellent job as Amy Dunne, I wanted to punch her in the face. It was awesome, haha! Can I just say, I also loved Go and the cat?
I never gave actor Chris Pratt much thought, aside from the fact he is pretty funny in a lot of TV shows and movies. He has been in a lot of movies and shows these days. I watched him on The Five-Year Engagement (about 400x because FXX seems to be playing it on an endless loop) and I loved his song number. Let’s not forget his rap while on the radio. He really got a big break voicing the star of The Lego Movie, you go Glenn Coco!

Then he got all hot and stuff when he was in Guardians of the Galaxy. I was like, huh? Was he hot all along?! I sorta feel like he was that girl in high school that nobody paid attention to then you see them at the reunion and they become all hot and shit. While you’re standing there like…huh?! So now he has made my celebrity crush list, thank God because it’s been a bit stale for years now.
Errr…sorry Andy if you’re reading this.
I’m not ready for the cold yet, I was enjoying summer very much. Okay, so maybe I was sick of humidity. But that doesn’t mean I was ready to switch from flip flops this morning. I was hoping I could manage another couple of weeks with sandals, but it doesn’t look like it will be possible. It looks like it will be in the 70’s a couple of days this week, so I will definitely wear my sandals then. I guess that is a good compromise!
[photo] It’s a sad day when you have to switch from sandals to sneakers. But I picked one of my favorite pairs of sneakers to soften the blow.
Andy and I watched the “The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story“. Like most Lifetime movies, I take them with a grain of salt. Not sure how I feel about the TUSBTBS, but it was definitely a little cheesy. I would like to know how true some of it is, since it’s only from the point of view of Dustin Diamond. Plus, the fact it’s “unauthorized” deters me from how truthful the story could be. I didn’t watch the show that much, as I wasn’t great at remembering to watch anything that wasn’t on Nickleodeon. But the Lifetime story was okay. I think they did a good job casting look-a-likes for Screech, Lisa, and Jessie. The casting for Kelly, Zack, and AJ was just so-so.
