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...
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.
