39 More Days

Hello readers. I apologize the updates have been far and few between. Partially due to a lack of new  information, but also largely due to life catching up with me. So here's just a random mishmash of items that I've been meaning to get around to.

In a World Like This Tour
One thing keeping me busy over the past month or so has been the In a World Like This tour. I was fortunate I got to see the show a couple of times- here locally and out in Vegas. Oh my goodness, soooo sooo good! I really loved what they did with the show. Great mix of the oldies and the new stuff, though I'd certainly love some more new stuff. I love that they brought back a lot of their old classic dances like the AIHTG hat dance. I love that it was just them- no dancers or even band. I love all the lighting and production. I love the videos they incorporated during their wardrobe changes... 'Maybe its me' Gets me every time!

I thought having the after parties on site at the venue was a great new addition to this tour. I hope they continue that concept. The VIP packages have also changed a bit from last year- both in scope of what you get and the prices. So no platinum for me this time around! Fortunately I wasn't even tempted, and my bank account thanks me immensely. Though from what I heard from friends who did the platinum experience, they seemed to enjoy it.

On a personal note, one of the highlights for me this tour was that I finally was able to go to a show with my mom. She had never seen them live nor had come to a show with me before and she finally decided to "see what all the fuss is about." Well she left the show a huge fan- even asked me to burn her a CD of their music. She said she "finally gets it." It was just nice to be able to share this part of my life with her.

And here are a few pics I took for your viewing pleasure...


Still waiting...

Shifting gears back to the cruise, I feel like things are so much more disorganized this time around. Maybe its just me?? We still don't have our themes (minus Halloween night) though the boys tweeted we should be seeing them this week; I'll believe it when I see it. No word on any pre-cruise event nor any possible activities they're having on board. I feel like the tweets/info have been quite minimal. No door decoration contest announcement, though in all fairness I suppose they technically didn't email us anything last year.

Though in all honesty I feel so behind myself. We've barely started our door decoration, and I feel like last year at this time I was all done. This year I'm mentally all over the place this year and I've barely had time to get excited. I can't believe we're already almost a month out! 

Well I suppose that's all for now. Hopefully you'll be hearing from me again soon with theme announcements.

  2. I really enjoy reading your blog! This will be my first time going on a BSB cruise and reading about your experiences has given me so much insight into what I can expect. I agree, the in a world like this tour was amazing and I also went to 2 different shows.....in Toledo, OH and Detroit, MI. Just curious, which themes did you vote for?

    1. Thanks!! So glad you like my blog :)
      And I voted for almost all of the themes hahah I liked Drowning night b/c it seemed easy....though a lot of my friends pointed out it'd be too similar to the beach party. Oh well, hopefully we'll hear the results soon!

  3. Thanks for posting your pictures. Also, I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels like there is no time to even think about the cruise. My mother recently went into the hospital and is in really bad shape and I'm even considering losing it all and not going. This would be my first cruise ever and I also feel like things are more disorganized than last times. Of course it has to be the one I'm involved with. I just hope we hear about the themes soon. Also, I was only able to attend the Chicago IAWLT Tour and I'm sure you have heard how it ended short so I feel like that was a bust too.

    1. So sorry to hear your mom :( Sounds like you really need this vacation though!! I hope you don't decide to cancel it!! Even though it may appear disorganized, you'll have a blast, trust me!!
      And yes i did hear about the chicago show, oh man. Just think, theres a good chance they may do the same show on the cruise, so you'll hopefully get a chance to see the full show :)
