Have I mentioned that I'm going to Boyz II Men tonight? No? Well, I am. Further proof that I am completely awesome. The first time I heard Motown Philly, I was watching a Full House epi and Stephanie Tanner had a dance routine to it. I danced with someone (and I CANNOT remember his name) to "End of the Road" at my 8th grade dance. And II was one of the (if not THE) first CDs that I ever owned. I can still sing all of the words to "Water Runs Dry." I know. Your respect for me has just reached to new levels.

Cason's birthday is Monday (wipe a tear...sniff sniff). He's having a SMALL party on Sunday with family and three friends. There are two things he's been pretty consistent about wanting for his birthday. An airplane and a "cool tv." By airplane he means one that you ride in. Like an actual airplane. And by "cool tv" he means one like his dad got for Christmas. A 50 inch flat screen. What can I say? He's like his mama. He's got expensive taste. I'm trying to prepare him for the harsh reality that, barring a massive win at the slots tonight, neither one of those things will be gifted to him. We're thinking more along the lines of toy trucks and movies.

I've been going back at looking at pictures of him (so I can put together a slide show like a did for Kendall...I know you are all pumped) and I am struck at how much he looked like Kendall when he was her age (I am also struck that when he was Kendall's age I was very much pregnant...something I mean not to duplicate).

Well, I need to go plan my outfit for tonight. Question: What does one wear to a 90's group's concert at a casino? Discuss amongst yourselves.

You need a t-shirt tie. Or a slap bracelet. Or both. I love Boyz II Men, I had all of their tapes. I am old.

I tried to learn Steph's dance to Motown Philly. But all I ended up doing was freezing up and doing ballerina twirls like she did before bob saget gave her a pep talk.

I'm pretty sure if you throw on some sweatpants and a t-shirt you'll fit right in. But be sure and either have an a. oxygen tank or b. a wheel chair...oh and chain smoke.

I'm pretty sure I am an expert at this since I work at casino and I love 90's music. I suggest a neon pink windbreaker with some sweet zig zag design in neon green and purple. Don't forget to roll your sock and wear some Keds.Also, so...ditto to everything Angela said. You'll blend in perfectly.

Lastly, Boyz to Men II was the first cd I ever bought. I think I played that thing to death. Oh memories.

Whatever you decide to wear, be sure to put shoulder pads on underneath. You can't be early nineties without shoulder pads. Also, toss the straightener and curl your hair with electric rollers, and get a skinny curling iron and some hairspray to plump up your bangs.

It was my first cd too, I was in love.
I hope you broke out the tights with built-in frilly little skirt and no doubt the overpriced keds that were ruined in about two seconds by the red dirt!
All those oversived 90's T's sure make great broken-in lounge wear now!

Your outfit was cute, but I'm sad there weren't any slap bracelets or neon fabrics involved.
