I am now 2 days away from my first Backstreet Boys concert and I realize that I am completely out of my element.

I know nothing about VIPs or APs…heck…until a few months ago when I purchased my tickets they were just a bunch of letters to me!

Now I find myself immersed into this new world that is foreign to me. I see pictures upon pictures and have read countless tweets, stories and blogs. While I have dipped my toes into this new land quite a bit of late, I feel as if I am still outside looking in. 

The ‘new girl in school” syndrome…I will go to Camden, NJ excited yet very nervous. Where do I go? What do I do? What if I don’t fit in? 

I don’t know how to “fangirl”…I only know how to plank…ha, ha!

I write this partly in jest. It is only a concert…it isn’t like I am giving birth! (For the record, I have done that twice and I can guarantee that this will be easier and more pleasant…lol!)

But there is some truth beneath the surface. In the roughly 3 years since I was inspired by Nick, I have made it a mission to “get out of my head” and follow my heart. This includes trying new things and having new experiences…pushing myself outside of my comfort zone.

So with these thoughts in mind I will wear my sparkly “I Plank It That Way” tank top and will enjoy the experience and smile because I am still here to experience it.

Hugs and planks to all!
